Accademia Di Vino reviews from OpenTable diners

    Dined on 1/4/2012
    We saw the paper that day and knew the restaurant was closing, but went anyway. A mistake---could tell it was in a closing down mode. Food was mediocre and service atrocious. Glad to see Tony;s DiNapoli has taken over the space. Hope they open there; have missed them since the 2nd Avenue subway project did them in, like it did most of 2nd Avenue and continues to do so.

    This was indeed a perfect place to share a convivial New Year Eve's dinner among friends. The restaurant was smartly decorated, just festive enough with baloons and candles at every table. There was a special menu for the evening and we took advantage of it plus ordering a few favorites from the standard menu. It was an enjoyable and memorable night and everything was perfect.

    We love it and will miss it! This was a created special occasion to say good-bye to one of our favorite restaurants. This time, probably because we were sitting basically at the junction of two rooms, was particularly noisy (and because there was an astonishingly loud woman at a table behind us), but that's a mere quibble in the grand scheme of things.

    This was the 3rd time that I ate here (probably the last). The food was just ok - they do not allow any substitutions for any of their meals, which is very odd and annoying. The service that we had was horrible. Any question that we asked our server, she didn't have the answer and made it as if she was doing us a favor to find out. The service we received was poor at best.

    I was rather deceived by this place. Although the outside gives the impression of a classic Italian trattoria, this inside of the restaurant could pass for an upscale Olive Garden. The appetizers and focaccia were good, yet the entrees were very disappointing and unimaginative.

    Food was, as usual, very good. Favorite is the robiola pizza - fantastic thin crust. The service this time was a combination of obtrusive, with too-long menu descriptions, and inattentive. Still, overall, a very enjoyable dining experience.

    This west side location has recently changed its name and clearly wants to have more a of a bar vibe. The music was excessively loud, the menu and wine list were greatly reduced from when I was last there and the service was spotty at best. I'm hoping the East-side iteration has retained it's ambiance and quality.

    The pastas are delicious, whoever is working that station does a great job, as for the other aspects of the meal I can't say the same. The service was unattentive and they were out of many menu items. The starters were just ok, and maybe I'm picky but for the cost just good pasta isnt going to cut it. However, with small improvements I think this restaurant could be really good.

    The service was great! Waiter recommend a very nice bottle of wine from a very large selection. Price was way too high for food quality. Salad couldn't be simpler, turkey couldn't be dryer. We also ordered fish from the menu($30) the only thing you taste was the marinated sauce. Wouldn't come back for food even if it was a lot cheaper.

    We went to the Accademia Di Vino on Thanksgiving. My husband and I were looking for good Italian food and the rest of our party was interested in a traditional turkey meal. Accademia Di Vino satisfied us all. The ambiance was pleasant and the food was excellent. Our waitress was very accommodating. We would definitely go again.

    Our main course did not come out at the same time. In fact, it took ten minutes for the last entree to arrive. And then it lacked the main ingredient, flavor. It might have helped if the server had checked back at any time. Poor service, poor food prep. I think I will find another spot to eat at.

    My second visit in a week was disappointing and deserves note. While the restaurant was noticeably busier than during the week (this was a Friday night), the hostess insisted on showing us to a table for 2 in an undesirable location. During our 1.5 hour stay, half the 4 tops remained empty! The Caesar salad was a BIG disappointment. The pasta sauce was weak. The half chicken yummy. Waiter Mario never appeared at table toask about any food. I guess he really didn't care! Oh, grey goose martini prepared to perfection.

    Went here for a quiet meal for two - big mistake. The place has a great atmosphere but is really quite noisy. Food is pretty nice - and the wine excellent. Service is OK but could be friendlier. However the bar upstairs is totally excellent and recommended for an after dinner session.

    Enjoyed our early dinner. Wine recommended by server was excellent. Shared a pasta dish and chicken entree as well as entrees. The pizzas are very thin crusted, broiled to a crisp finish. Worth trying, really different. All well prepared, moderate sized portions. The bread was yummy. Clearly a neighborhood restaurant, with a returning crowd.

    Our food was outstanding! We both had the frisee salad with hazelnuts and mint and it was perfect. For my main course I had a pasta dish with pesto, green beans and potatoes- also perfect. My husband had the salmon which he said was excellent. We split a chocolate dessert. All in all a perfect meal. We dined on the early side for NYC and I think that makes a difference. The chef has time to do his job perfectly and the servers can bring the food out immediately. This was the best meal I have had in this restaurant. Can't wait to go back!
