    This was our last night in NYC and I was looking for something a bit low-key. After reading the reviews, I decided to make this our last dinner on our trip. It is a small restaurant but the service was exquisite. He made sure we felt comfortable and we were being taken care of properly throughout the night. The food was good and the atmosphere in the restaurant was romantic. On this night they had a piano player singing some nice songs that helped set the mood.

    I chose the restaurant at random for meeting a friend for an early dinner and her geographic specification was "east side in the 40s or 50s" - We both like Italian and I saw through Open Table that we could get an early reservation. I arrived first and was warmly welcomed and shown to the table - beverages were offered and a plate of warm snacky bits and bread were brought out. After my friend arrived service continued - attentive and charming. Our starters were both very generous in size, fresh and tasty. Main course portions were also large, nicely presented. The sauce on my ravioli could have used a bit of a spark, but it was pleasant. My glass of wine was also a generous serving. Alas no room for dessert, but we'd come back!

    Very good service. I have allergies and they did all they could to ensure that I had no problems with my choice and it was very good -- delicious. I noticed a small group of out of towners and they did enjoy their meal choices and lingered for a while. When we left,the bar was busy and upbeat. For me, it's a great neighborhood find. And from what we observed it was enjoyable for others as well.

    This is a very good reasonable priced midtown Italian Restaurant. The stuffed protobello mushroom with wine reduction sauce was very good. I had the Black Linguine with Seafood and it was very tasty and the linguine was cooked properly. My wife had a fish dish was was good. The presentation was excellent. My only complaint would be the selection of lower price wines was minimal.

    There was an error with the time I booked, they said a table was open at 3:30 but they didn't open till around 4 so we were the only ones in the restaurant. The food was perfect we both had the Chilean sea bass. I was in a rush to leave so can't comment on the dessert but definitely would come back again. Timing is everything and the day got off to a bad start. That said, the restaurant met my expectations and then some. A neighbor told me about it, I only wish I had known sooner. Nice atmosphere and good food and service if my company was better it would have been a perfect experience. Well just sayin"

    This week was my second visit to Da Noi and I enjoyed it as much as the first. For a casual business dinner , it could not have been better The food was good, portions the right size and everyone enjoyed what they ordered. Even better was the service - prompt, friendly but not intrusive and extremely efficient. We were sat next to another group but still not too much noise to carry on a conversation. Overall a great expereince. Well done!

    Went there for a table of 2, and they added on a gratuity of 20%. They didn't tell me so if I had not caught it I would've tipped extra. That's extremely sneaky in my opinion and enough to make me never go back

    Picked DaNoi because of good open table reviews and a convenient location. Early 6pm Business dinner with a party of six. Bartender and one of the owners were extremely friendly and made us feel very welcome. Our waiter was very professional and knowledgable about the menu and helped us choose a very good Italian wine at a reasonable price. Food was very good particularly the appetizers, the fish and the veal dishes were all very good. Desserts were nice Italian selections and all of us enjoyed them. It was a weeknight not particularly busy and we stayed as long as we like. Everyone was just as friendly on the way out as when we arrived. I would go back for sure.

    The restaurant was comfortable, aside from the draft coming from the enclosed patio area. The food was good, nothing spectacular. The small size of the portions for the price was ridiculous. It actually became comical when a 2 x 2 piece of tiramisu was delivered to the table....$9! We are native New Yorkers so we are used to the small portions, but it's acceptable in selective restaurants not a place like Da Noi.

Food excellent (we love buratta appie), chicken with artichoke a huge hit; likewise shrimp stuffed with crab served with side of spinach linguine. Service by folks who love their jobs!

    What a wonderful find. We Yelped the neighborhood of our hotel and Da Noi came up with raves. We were not disappointed. I wish I got the name of the host who also served as our waiter. He was so professional yet warm and added to our overall wonderful experience. The food was bright and fresh, the atmosphere was just beautiful. Nice combination of regulars and travelers. We will be back to Da Noi and look forward to directing our friends there.
