One of my favorites for Italian
Been here a few times for lunch with friend's and most recently on a date. The place has great food and service. It's now become one of my favorites for Italian. Definitely worth a look, you won't be disappointed.

We went there on Saturday, March 30, 2013. The food and service were excellent. We would definitely go there again next time we are in NYC. Convenient location near Bryant Park.Salad, entrees, and wine were superb and staff was very attentive.M. Lafauce

We chose this place because it was near a Bryant Park event, but it was a lucky find. We were a little apprehensive when we arrived and there were only 2 other couples in there -- we actually doubled the people in the restaurant. The food was very good and plentiful (a little pricey -- but, hey, it IS NYC!). No one ordered an appetizer or dessert and we all went away full. The waiter was excellent -- extremely friendly, very accommodating to one on our party who has a food allergy. The wine suggestion he made to us was great. Two negatives: They ran out of veal (so only one in our party could get it -- although 2 wanted it) and they closed the kitchen at 9 PM on a Friday night (in NYC?!?). Overall, I would definitely recommend it.

Resturant was not busy. Service
Resturant was not busy. Service was excellent - attentive but not rushed. Food was presented by attractively and very tasty. I had mentioned it was a friends birthday in my reservation and they surprised us with a birthday tarimasu, complete with candle and verse of Happy Birthday. Overall a very pleasant experiance. Not inexpensive, but worth the price.

Better then expected
When we read the other reviews we were a little worried. Overall it exceeded all of our expectations. Service was prompt, friendly and efficient. Food was outstanding. My wife had the veal special and she said it was outstanding. We highly recommend. You won't be disappointed.

We found this restaurant while looking for a place to dine before an event nearby. What a great surprise! From the moment we walked in, we were welcomed with open arms and were pleased to see a wonderful decor. We enjoyed everything we ordered, from the appetizer to dessert! The owner and his staff make sure that you walk out happy, and that is an added plus.Since our first visit, we have returned twice, and we definitely will be returning again! I highly recommend Appetito.

A classic old school place
Waiters in suits who know the perfect balance of attentive service. Simple, classic northern Italian food that was perfect for my friend and I who were looking for an easy place to have dinner after a hectic day in midtown. The wine list was a pleasant surprise and we had a great bottle of red.

Very attentive staff
We had dinner with children before a show. The staff was great, we enjoyed our meals. The only negative would be the desserts which are not made on the site.

A classic Italian restaurant with all you would expect to find on the menu. Warm atmosphere with the exposed brick wall. Less noisy than I expected. Attentive service, no fuss, leisurely…which is good.

Great food, bad service
I met a client for lunch at Appetito Ristorante and was made to feel I was putting out the host staff in a 100% empty restaurant. Once seated at the table, I had two excellent glasses of wine with an amazing appetizer. However, the wait staff seemed annoyed that we were only going to have drinks an appetizers. If this restaurant could care a little more about their customers, they would knock the ball out of the park on all fronts.

Have dined here multiple times
Have dined here multiple times with friends and family. As a person who travels a lot and is accustomed to eating out 3-4x a week, this has to be one of my favorite restaurants hands down. Most of the food is home made and the service is very friendly. To last over 2 decades in manhattan you know quality is priority for there restuarant.

We booked Appetito for the first time and found that the service was great and food high quality. In addition we did not feel rushed which was nice. We enjoyed lunch at Appetito.

The food was simply delicious. For starters we had baked clams , followed by lobster ravioli in vodka sauce. They were out of this world. I can still taste them, The waiters are very attentive and friendly. This restaurant is a find in the middle of Manhattan.

Nice little authentic Italian spot
The square room was tightly packed but they managed to make you feel like family. The food was ver good and the waiter friendly. Although quite slow at the end of the meal through dessert and bill pay when the restaurant became more busy. We thought the tip line for a "captain" was a bit excessive. Since we didn't even know who that was. But overall nice experience.

Our company just moved into
Our company just moved into the area so we gave Appetito a try. It was phenomenal. From service to food everything was top notch. We will deff be back and our very much looking forward to our next experience.
