    I dined here on a Friday night at 9pm. Immediately felt welcomed and had my choice of several tables. Tall ceiling with a balcony level so the noise level was quiet. Had one of the several pasta specials plus the branzino. Wow! Spinach fettuccine with very fresh mussels perfectly cooked. The branzino was the best I have ever tasted, ultra fresh, generous portion. Very pleasant service. These 2 dishes, a large bottle of mineral water, tax, and tip came to $100, but it was worth every penny! Will be back!

    This is a restaurant worth travelling for! Marco and his team have a top of the line menu, very attentive service, a very good wine list, and nice ambience for those romantic date nights, friends / family dinners, or just a solo spot to get a very classy dinner. Do yourself a favor and give them a try, you'll become a regular!

    I brought my family to Marcony and it was a lovely setting for dinner for 4 with ground level and upstairs dining opens. Beautiful decor and a pleasant atmosphere. Service was excellent: attentive, reliable, and personable. Food was prepared to request and elegantly served. Nothing extravagant, reasonably priced, and something, based on my first try, I would consider a Murray Hill staple for Italian food.

    Picked this place on short notice for dinner with a colleague who wanted Italian as it was near my office. I had walked by it several times and never thought to try it, my mistake. Yes it was a typical italian menu but the food was done very well. Great burrata appetizer, veal chop cooked perfectly. Service was excellent also: attentive waiter and very friendly host. I'll be back.

    The venue is intimate and you can converse and actually hear one another without shouting! Our calamari and tuna appetizers were delicious. The branzino and lamb dishes perfectly prepared. Desserts were better than average especially the coconut bread pudding which was outrageous. We couldn't figure out what wine to pick so we told the waiter what we liked. The one he selected was perfect. The service was impeccable. Don't be shocked when you get the bill - it is very pricey!

    We've been going to Marcony regularly for business lunches since it opened. Every meal has been stellar. More than once, my clients have asked me to look the other way while they wipe up the remaining sauce on their plate with their bread. It's that good. I would highly recommend it for formal lunches or dinners, special occasions, or just a romantic evening. I've taken clients, my grandparents, and a group of friends, and it's always a hit. The service is always excellent as well.

    We've been to Murray Hill many times, and dined at Marcony based on a strong recommendation from friends. We weren't disappointed! The wait staff were friendly and attentive, the ambience is chic elegance, and the food was divine. We were seated at a cozy balcony table overlooking the restaurant and our server was fantastic. I highly recommend the octopus salad and the veal medallions - YUM. We had a drink at the bar before dinner, and it's got a nice vibe and great cocktails.

    I'd walked by this place many, many times whenever I visited my mother, who lives in the area, but I'd never gone in. Finally I made us a reservation and we couldn't have enjoyed it more. The owners were extremely helpful and attentive (it didn't hurt that we spoke Italian), and the food was very, very good. Also the wine list was much more extensive than one might expect from another Italian restaurant of the same size. I definitely plan to return. I have a feeling it might become my mom's "spot."

    Nothing unusual about this visit except we sat upstairs for a change. The food was good but didn't blow us away on this visit (usually something really surprises us). Service was excellent. Stuck to basics--zucchini blossoms, linguine with clams, chicken with lemon sauce, tartufo. All were good.

    Great food, awesome service and nice outside dining. Everything about Marcony was wonderful. Great appetizers...the eggplant was served like a soufflé and was the best I ever tasted. I was there with my two grown sons who both work and live in the city and they loved everything about Marcony. Our waiter David was perfect. We were never waiting long for food or drinks nor were we rushed. I felt like we were the only ones there till I walked inside and saw that the restaurant had filled up. All in all a very nice evening!

    We changed our plans last minute and chose to book to Marcony. What a great surprise we had. We were looking for a place for a romantic dinner at the end of our trip to NYC. We were instantly surprised with the service which was fast, courteous and accurate. The food was also great, but the white and black truffe cream sauce tortellinis my wife ordered were a-b-s-o-l-u-t-e-l-y fantastic! It's a must for pasta lovers. The sauce is just amazing! Thanks Marcony!

    Met friends here last night. We had never been to Marcony's but had been recommended to it by family. While the menu is not very diverse they do offer many wonderful specials. The dover sole, in particular, was one of the best dishes I have ever had. The staff is very friendly, the service was excellent and the food absolutely sensational, though quite pricey. We would definitely go back.

    WE found Marconey's online looking for a good place for lunch in the Murray Hill area. It was a Saturday and the place was empty. But, it is a beautiful, small, REAL Italian restaurant with the feel of the Amalfi Coast. The food is fantastic. We had very traditional and delicious Linguini and Clams, Shellfish pasta (Gluten Free) with Fra diablo sauce that was excellent and a fantastic fettuccini bolognaise. Salads were great as well and the service was fantastic. Of course we were about the only ones there, but that doesn't always mean great service. We will be back.

    Our group of four enjoyed a delightful and well-paced meal. The gazpacho with lobster was a highlight for me as was the artichoke salad. We also shared a wonderful Dover Sole and linguini with clams. Our friends were very pleased with the stuffed zucchini flower, the branzino and fettucini with porcini mushrooms. Desserts were also fantastic. We will soon be back!

    Although the food was very good when it arrived, the restaurant forgot to make one of the entrees for a party of four and seemed very surprised when the entrees were delivered that they only had three for a party of four, asking "Did someone not order an entree?" Really? Then, instead of taking all entrees back, they served the three. When the bill came, we noticed that specials were about $20 higher than the typical price on the menu. If a restaurant is going to charge that much of a differential, they should specifically disclose the price of the special. Despite good food and a very pleasant ambiance, I would not return to this restaurant.

    Number one rule for a waiter- acknowledge the people at a table even if you can't get to them right away. We had a 7:30 reservation. We sat down at 7:35. We were served our glasses of wine at 8pm. Not cool. Waiter was nice but not smart. Could only do one thing at a time. Didn't think to offer pepper. I had to ask for everything. This is the first time I'm complaining about service at this restaurant. It's usually very good. Didn't ask how I wanted my salmon cooked. I like medium rare. My salmon came out rare. Also never happened before. Oh well, every restaurant has an off night. This was clearly one of them.

    Hosted a special lunch for out of town visitors. The services was top-notch, and they even created an appetizer sampler plate for each of us which made it easy to taste all and beautiful on the table. I've eaten here before, but not reviewed--the food is always delicious. Only a few in our party ordered alcohol which was not a problem at all. Love the Sea Bass here!

    Food was very good, albeit typically high Manhattan prices. We brought our older children,one of whom is still quite picky. Definitely not a restaurant for kids - $20 for plain spaghetti to appease the youngster. However, in Marconys defense, they clearly are not targeting families with children and that's ok. The food the rest of us had was very good. Service was good but the server quite awkwardly shared with us his experience milking cows back in Italy and went on to describe how they would slit pigs throats! Clearly not appropriate dinner (or ever) conversation. He was new so maybe nervous, but very nice and service was attentive. We ate early because of show tickets so few people in the restaurant - therefore hard to rate ambiance.

    Although the food was good, the server steered me toward the veal special when I asked for a recommendation between that and a pasta. What he failed to tell me was the cost of the special - $65 which I thought was outrageous. To top it off, I was originally brought a veal chop instead of the veal special and therefore did not receive my correct meal until 20 minutes after the 3 other people I was eating with. To be fair, the staff acknowledged their mistake, apologized and brought us free dessert. However, I would not return - good food but extremely pricey for what it was.

    Marcony had good food but I know I could eat elsewhere for less and just as good. The service was outstanding and it was refreshing to see the owner making the rounds and chatting up diners. You don't see that care and attention in many places now-a-days. The spot is a little small and if full, can be a little noisy.

    This is our third brunch and it is predictably wonderful! The wait staff is attentive and pleasant and always make you feel welcomed. Their eggs Benedict is among the best I have ever had. The flavor of the sauce and the perfectly poached eggs on their homemade toasted and buttered bread is mouthwateringly good! The Italian coffee is rich and full bodied and served with steamed milk. Although the drinks are a little expensive ($12 for a small bloody Mary... but they do put three olives in it) it can be a reasonable brunch with entrees ranging from $11-$15.
