A word from Regional
Regional is an Italian restaurant specializing in THE CUISINE OF THE MANY REGIONS OF Italy. Every single one of the 20 regions that comprise the Italian territory are represented with 1 or more recipes on our menu. We feature a wine list of about 50 all Italian wines(red white sparkling)and a full bar(seats 16) with a great small tapas menus. Other features are a great weekend brunch(anything from sandwiches to omelettes, burgers to pancakes). Our Chef PierLuigi Sacchetti has cooked in many hot spots in the city. Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Two eggs, one piece of toast and one piece of bacon for $11.... Not a very good value for my $$$."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "In three recent visits to Regional, I had one excellent sirloin steak and two extremely poor ones. The poor ones had lots of gristle and they were quite thin. They had very little chewable meat. On two occasions the waitress was excellent and on one other occasion the waitress just disappeared. One steak arrived about 15 minutes after everyone else in my party had been served. There is one consistently good dessert -- the warm chocolate souffle. Others might be good too; I haven't tried them. The wait staff is generally personable and knowledgable (except for the waitress who disappeared)."

  • "Food is great. Service variable. Once you order they forget about you"

  • "Overall this place was great. I wasn't in love with their menu items for brunch but the unlimited mimosas was fantastic! I'll definitely be back."

  • "I was delighted when Regional opened. We in the neighborhood had recently sadly saw the departure of and authentic French bistro. Regional promised to be authentically Italian, and it is, particularly in its menu. All the food is very good, especially the fish dishes. The service is great. My disappointed is with the atmosphere. The room is big, so it's hard to find an intimate table. The decor is modern and plain with hard surfaces everywhere which reflect noise; rather than being able to relax, have comfortable conversation, enjoy the carefully prepared Italian food and the good service, our meal is imposed upon by the din all around. I still like this spot, but not as much as I otherwise might."

  • "Very nice restaurant, reasonable prices, very good service. We had the Tuna Carpaccio and Eggplant and enjoyed them thoroughly We both had Pasta dishes and they were great."

  • "The food was great! Waiters were very attentive and my mimosa glass was always full!"
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "But the service is extremely slow. Do not come famished or you will be waiting and hungry for a long time."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "The food was fine, but the place was way too noisy for our taste."
    Dined on 4/27/2014
  • "I have been to Regional many times, mostly for dinner. I expect their brunch to be a bit rowdy (all you can drink), but the service and food is usually good enough to negate the frat party atmosphere. Good was mediocre. Service terrible (my tea was delivered as just a chipped cup of hot water; no tea bag). I will not go back for brunch again. "

  • "We have eaten here many times and it is always delicious. Their specials are great and their brunch is fantastic!"

  • "Regional is around the corner from my home and I have been going with neighbors and friends for quite a while. The food is always good. The service is always friendly and pleasant and the management is always welcoming. You really can't go wrong."

  • "Always dependable for excellent pasta and salads. No nonsense- just really good food."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "took approx 25 mins to seat us even though we had a reservation, once that happened, it took another 20-25 minutes to get our orders in"

  • "The food is wonderful and the service very warm, personal and attentive"

  • "I love this place! They have great food at reasonable prices. The service is wonderful and the pasta special on Mondays brings us back over and over."
    Dined on 2/17/2014
  • "The sausage and egg special and free refills on the mimosas made for a perfect brunch."
    Dined on 1/26/2014
  • "I invited seven friends to join me for dinner on my birthday, and Regional seemed to please everyone. Pay attention to the daily specials that offer great discounts on various items. Main drawback - most of the non-meat menu options are heavily dependent on dairy. It would be nice to see more vegetables and fish. I haven't found an appetizer yet that this non-meat-eating lactose-intolerant person can enjoy."
    Dined on 12/30/2013
  • "The food at Regional was your typical, brunch food. Nothing to really write home or opentable about. The unlimited mimosas, especially for the price of one mimosa is a total win."
    Dined on 12/28/2013
  • "Really good fresh pastas and salads. Lots to choose from. Very casual, but the food is great and the price is right."
    Dined on 12/28/2013
  • "Monday is their cheap pasta night, so crowds are expected--but the restaurant should get enough staff on hand to handle them. Also, bartenders need to check for dregs when pouring the last of a bottle. My second glass of red had grape pudding in the bottom. A pet peeve, which happens at too many restaurants, is that no one bothers to say, "Thank you," when patrons leave. Otherwise, except for the dismal, factory-cafeteria, décor, well done."
    Dined on 12/23/2013
  • "This place is always busy and even when they aren't at full capacity they still somehow look busy. I think it is the overall vibe as a neighborhood coffee shop and its modern italian atmosphere that give this place something unique and makes me keep coming back often, mostly for brunch (the AYCD Mimosas is the best). The food is always excellent and decent portions too, they will substitute plenty for an additional cost and depending if the chef is in a good mood. As soon as you sit the pastry basket, especially the chocolate muffins, are enough to keep you full while waiting for the main course. Sometimes you do need to ask your server a few times for side items or refills, but I always come and leave happy and full and smiling."
    Dined on 12/22/2013
  • "Restaurant is in a good location and has a nice vibe inside. Food is not awesome but not horrible either. Our selection of wine was pleasant. Service has major challenges. Waiters do not communicate well and the service overall was really slow on a Tuesday night when half of the restaurant was empty. It was my first time there but will be the last time as well."

  • "A wonderful place for a trip through many regions of Italy. We shared a calamari special appetizer and then had 2 different pastas. Everything was very good and we will go back."
    Dined on 12/4/2013
  • "Fantastic place! This is my go to place when we have people come to our neighborhood for dinner. Excellent Italian food - every single dish is very tasty - lots of vegetarian options and plenty for those who like fish and all sorts of meat. Not a great place for kids."
    Dined on 11/6/2013
  • "Good food, nice sized portions. Enjoyable dining experience"
    Dined on 10/18/2013
  • "My guests declared that the food at Regional was better than the ambiance! And that really sums it up for me. The food is excellent. The service very good. But the restaurant itself is a bit generic. However we overlook that in favor of excellent food and being right down the street from my apartment. So give Regional a try. You will be pleasantly surprised!"
    Dined on 10/26/2013
  • "Perfect for pre-theater at Symphony Space. Italian neighborhood gem for the Upper West Side, and you don't even have to have an entree or a pasta to enjoy a meal. Appetizers and salads make for a perfect lunch, as well as for pre-theater dinner. Negative is the higher than preferable noise level."
    Dined on 10/16/2013
  • "We LOVED Regional. We chose to eat there because it is close to Symphony Space where we had gone. But i would make the trip to eat at Regional even if I weren't in the neighborhood for other reasons. The food is authentic, most Northern, Italian. Simple, well done, great tastes and everything fresh. And the prices were better than in "other'" parts of Manhattan. I had the special-of-the-day paparadelle with short rib ragu. As we used to say when eating in Tuscany: Divina! I also loved the side of swiss chard. I can't wait to go back and try all the other things on the menu. And--leave room for dessert. It's worth it."
    Dined on 10/13/2013
  • "Excellent choice from a price/value standpoint. Pastas are very fresh and well prepared. Service is attentive. Wines are reasonably priced. The décor is a bit sterile, but the glass is definitely more than half full for this restaurant."
    Dined on 10/13/2013
  • "There is NO management in this restaurant and no host. In fact I had to call to get them to click on my Open Table reservation 3 days after I dined there on Saturday eve. The food was tasty but we waited 30 minutes for entrees. While the waitress tried her best, the busboy was chauvinistic and rude. Lack of supervision will be the downfall of this place. Too bad as we really need neighborhood eateries in the area. Won't be going again anytime soon"
    Dined on 10/5/2013
  • "Good food moderate prices and nice spot when in the area again."
    Dined on 9/21/2013
  • "The hostess was friendly and seated us immediately while we waited for the other member of our group. There were three of us and we had 2 salads, a special octopus salad and an excellent arugula, apple and ricotta salad from the menu. We also ordered a fritto misto appetizer and 2 entrees - a sea bass and a pork chop special. Everything was cooked to perfection and flavorful. We will return to try more of the menu options."
    Dined on 9/14/2013
  • "This small Upper West Brunch spot should be avoided. The menu looks good, and they lure you with an unlimited brunch drink special, but the service leaves a lot to be desired. We made a reservation, but were seated after a group the same size walked in without a reservation. We had to ask to get drinks while we waited at the bar, and were constantly being dripped on by the over humid room. Once we were seated, they kept the drinks full, but we had to request our server to order and after all was done, instead of politely telling us that they were closing to change over for dinner, they simply turned the lights out on us. Rude, scattered and unhelpful. The food was good, but not worth it for that terrible service."

  • "We brought two guests for brunch on Sunday. Three of our meals were perfect and very good...........one had some difficulties. BUT, this is not about the difficulty with the dish, this is about how it was handled. My Salad with Artichokes and cherry tomatoes lacked both artichokes and cherry tomatoes. The waiter apologized and took it back to the kitchen returning it with very few artichokes, the proprietor then came over to check. She went back to the kitchen and returned with both artichokes and cherry tomatoes and a sincere apology. The salad was delightful and very tasty and the experience left us satisfied on every level."
    Dined on 8/11/2013
  • "While the food was fine and the bottomless bloody marys enjoyable, this place is always crowded on Sundays and they always seem surprised and irritated with the crowd- getting surly and having a noise level and chaotic check in process that makes for a less than relaxing brunch."
    Dined on 8/4/2013
  • "A very pleasant neighborhood pasta joint with cheerful if not the most efficient service. Delicous skewered meatballs can start your meal or a tasty caprese salad. Good selection of pastas and meat options and a variety of appetizer dishes can make this a very nice dinner. A good wine selection and a nice bar area add to the attraction. One drawback no gelato or ice cream option for a light dessert."
    Dined on 7/25/2013
  • "Regional on the Upper Upper West Side offers good food and many discounted attractions. It is always very busy... But they haven't quite figured out the customer service angle. The wait staff is very uneven. They tend to be tunnel visioned... And only make an appearance after much arm-waving."
