    Had a great Pizza with my boyfriend , small one is enough for two to share . For Entre we had delicious chicken Francese with mixed veggies, what I loved about vegetables is the freshnest and crunchiness ,not being overcooked. Nothing to complain, exept that was a busy night and very cold outside so the door would be opening and closing very often but in overall great experience , service was attentive not overbearing! Will be back !

    We were 9, seated at two adjacent tables very soon after the full group arrived. They accommodated our request for separate checks without question, with only a small mixup on pairing drinks, appetizers and entrees on the checks. We were neither rushed nor neglected, but felt very leisurely in our meal, which was good, and we cleaned our plates. The bruschetta was especially tasty.

    Angelo Bellini has a nice old school NYC atmosphere and the food was decent. The service on the other hand was nonexistence!! We had a 715 reservation but table was not ready when we arrived at 715 and bar seats were open so we chose to eat there. Big mistake there was no designated bartender!!! We spent the evening flagging down wait staff for drink orders and food orders!! I'm sure they didn't like it as much as we did. Once we got served(uphill battle) The food was good, Brick oven pizza and Penne with Vodka Sauce and prosciutto. We don't know if the bartender was out but you can't have people at the bar without a bartender!! No one from management said a word or attempted an explanation sometimes that's all it takes.

    It seems that we arrived in the midst of an unexpected Sunday evening crowd. There were not enough servers so the whole process was delayed. It took at least 10 minutes to get a glass of water, etc. Also, MAKE sure to check the wine ordered against the wine on the list. I was given a 2013 when the menu indicated 2011. There is a very big difference in the price and the restaurant did not offer to reduce the price for me despite repeated attempts and explanations. I would have left but we were celebrating a special Birthday and didn't want the headache.

    Went to dinner with my boyfriend on a Friday evening. AB's was good, but nothing to rave about. Bread was served before dinner and cam out pipping hot which was a plus. The meat antipasti plate was traditional with two salamis and proscuitto. My boyfriend is not a fan of very heavy, buttery, creamy Italian food, so his grilled salmon with veggies was right up his alley. I had the chicken piccata with mixed veggies. The chicken picatta was good, but nothing out of the ordinary. Just a standard sized, standard tasting chicken picatta. The veggies were simple….quick sautéed in some butter and italian herbs. Prices were very reasonable for NYC. Only real down side was that we felt a bit rushed. GO GATORS

    We had lunch at Angelo Bellini on Weds, we started out with three people and ended up with six, they were so accommodating. We were meeting friends that we had not seen in a long time, so we were the noisy ones. We spent over two hours there and at no time felt that we were holding up a table. Long after we had paid the bill the waiter kept coming with water for the table. The food was delicious.

    I wanted a nice Italian meal in the Grand Central station area and came upon this restaurant after reading countless great Yelp reviews. The service was great and the dishes were excellent, e.g., fettuccine alfredo with chicken; chicken parmesan with spag. saute broccoli Tips and taxe came out to be around $55.00 I will be back to try the rest of the other dishes!

    We picked this restaurant since it was close to my friends employment. We will definitely visit again. The food was very fresh and delicious. The service was surperb! They were friendly, tentative but not overbearing. The atmosphere of the venue was cozy and comfy. If you are looking for an italian restaurant with great food and pizza, this is the place. Also, it is a great place where they don't rush you out. They let you enjoy your meal which is what I definitely look for. Definitely reommend this to my friends.

    This is an excellent reasonably priced Italian restaurant. My husband and I ate here last night which was a quest Saturday night during Labor Day weekend. We had a very enjoyable meal on the front patio area. My brick oven pizza and my husband's shrimp Parmesan were both tasty and well prepared. Our serve was excellent. She was very friendly and she made our experience memorable.

    Great friendly service, had a really great glass of white sangria, presenting was very nice, love the bread sticks with olive oil. I had a 9 oz Filet steak that was prepared exactly as I asked, it was so tender I was able to easily cut meat with a butter knife, great grill taste , thick piece of meat, very pleased. Summer veggies cooked perfectly without tons of butter, naturally delicious ,still firm but cooked to exact readiness. Not a lot of heavy spice, the food stood well in its on as it was all fresh. My mother had a spaghetti Pollo dish, sauce was perfect, chicken was very tender and veggies in dish were a perfect compliment. Waitstaff very attentive and pleasant & very accomodating. Would definately return.

    The quaint feeling that u get by coming in the Restaurant is worth every penny that u will spend here! Nice delightful music playing , looking at the fire of brick oven pizza or looking at busy street in midtown east. Having a thin crust pizza with a glass of chianti was amazing and relaxing! This place is a winner , it's not an upscale restaurant but it doesn't have upscale prices neither ! It's great for any occasion , the service is honest friendly and attentive. What else to look for ...!!!

    I order here all the time on seamless and the food is pretty good, went with a few friends on Friday night and the place was empty. Can't really complain, I think I expected a top of the line Italian restaurant. This is probably great for lunch or a low key dinner, but not special occasions.
