Room with a viewand great food. We went there for our anniversary and it was lovely.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMHidden Gem on the UWSWe absolutely loved our dinner at Cafe Storico. It was our first time dining at the restaurant and went after receiving great recommendations from friends. The octopus sausage, King crab on cracker/toast, chicken liver on toast and duck breast entree were all AMAZING. Our server was knowledgeable about the menu and wine list and a joy to speak with. He recommended a red wine called fresia that was over the top outstanding. Can't wait to go back!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMfine restaurant @NY Historical Soc.Storico is another excellent example of museums increasingly having much better restaurants within their walls. The food is imaginative and tasty and the service is first class. The ambiance is quietly elegant, rather minimalistically white, with some decorations from the museum collection.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Pappardelle with DuckThe Pappardelle with Duck Ragu was wonderful. I look forward to going back again and again for it. The wait staff was friendly and attentive.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMlack of foodWe enjoyed our dinner at Cafe Storico, but the experience was marred by the fact that the kitchen ran out of several dishes that were on the menu and that we had selected before the server informed us about the issue. I have never had this kind of experience in a comparable New York City restaurant after thirty-odd years of living and dining here-- not just one dish (this happens)-- but three or four, appetizers, main courses, desserts. And this was on a Saturday night at 7:30-- one would think a prime time for such a restaurant to be stocked. Clearly, something is amiss here.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMfood delicious noise intolerable!food delicious....noise intolerable...... will never go to this restaurant again....5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways enjoyable. Love theAlways enjoyable. Love the selection of the wine by the glass. Menu is heavy on pasta and some of the portions are very small, and some very big. We've had both. A good combination with a visit to the NY Historical Society,
or the Museum of Natural History.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently goodAlways a delightful place to eat, outstanding pastas, interesting appetizers-chicken liver crostini delicious-and good desserts. Attentive service, attractive setting.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was one of the best lunchThis was one of the best lunch meals in memory. I had turkey panini and arugula salad, and both were outstanding. My colleague had the grilled chicken and arugula, and it too was outstanding.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMA very nice museum resto inA very nice museum resto in a much improved museum -- and across the street from a much larger museum that desperately needs a nice place to eat.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWill most certainly return!I love the 'airiness' of Caffe Storico. And the windows with Central Park tree top views and light - it's lovely.
We had a great table - corner - away from the hustle bustle - it is a noisy space, but not horrifying.
Menu was fun, I thought - wish they'd have some 'lighter fare' for lunch - or that my friends would have been interested in sharing.
I will definitely go back!4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had wonderful food andWe had wonderful food and excellent service on a Wednesday night. I wish there were more of a crowd in the evenings at this good restaurant. Being a little off the beaten track and without signage are most likely the reasons for the empty tables. But maybe something to make the room feel more intimate might help. Tablecloths? I don't know, but I will continue to patronize Storico and recommend it.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMThis place is a gem, cantThis place is a gem, cant wait to return and try Brunch4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMI have been to Caffe StoricoI have been to Caffe Storico a number of times and always found it wonderful. I love the cichetti, small plates.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMWe go back again and againWe go back again and again because the cafe is refreshing, pretty, and has good food.
