Da Noi - Midtown
Just RightI was surprised the restaurant wasn't more crowded on a Thursday night in May. We had six girls on a getaway weekend, staying at The Waldorf Astoria. It was an easy walk, not too expensive, and offered an Italian menu with lots of good choices. The hosts dumb jokes were mildly annoying, but it didn't ruin our experience. I prefer friendly professionalism without the silly humor. Food was very good, perhaps not memorable, but the prices were reasonable. Service was good, efficient, what you expect in NYC. They presented a small complimentary appetizer and later a sweet treat - very nice. A female vocalist on electric keyboard serenaded quietly and added nicely to the atmosphere. The restaurant was clean, the decor and lighting all very nice.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Italian food...I likeGreat Italian food...I like the pastas and the veal5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent!!The chef did an outstanding job!

Da Noi Midtown has all the charm of a neighborhood Italian with the upscale decor deserved in Midtown Manhattan. The food is excellent along with very attentive service. Eddie Gomez is a phenomenal host. This was the second time I've taken clients and each person enjoyed their meal with gusto.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMThe restaurant is lovely andThe restaurant is lovely and the food very good a nicely presented.

I " nailed it" with Da Noi. We had a large group of people, and the restaurant assigned more than enough staff to provide us excellent service. All of the dishes were extraordinary, but one stood out in particular, the Branzino. I highly recommend this neighborhood gem.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
