We were treated so well by all of the staff. Given the cozy booth in the corner. All of our group's items were perfect. In a neighborhood known with a dense array of restaurants, we are lucky to have this one added to the mix. It is unique in that you don't have to break the bank or scream across the table. Best part is it isn't fully discovered yet...so you can usually get a reservation same day too. the 20 foot ceilings and dim lighting really make the experience feel special. Definitely going back..often.

A nice find....one pasta dish
A nice find....one pasta dish arrived cold and under cooked (way more then al dente) but once advised the waiter cane back and advised it was removed from the bill. Otherwise everything else was good. Fried calamari big portion fresh and crisp, caprese had very nice chunk of fresh mozzarella, and the seafood pasta had a nice kick to it. Would definitely return if in the neighborhood

This is the second time I
This is the second time I have been to Brio Flatiron. Both times with a group of about 8.
Food was very good, service was good - even though it was very busy and one of our oders was held up. Still - the staff was on top of this and it was not an issue. Would definitley return!

The owner, Damien Scoditti,
The owner, Damien Scoditti, was so kind as to organize a fixed price menu for a group of students organizing an event with a budget for dinner with a guest-speaker. As an Italian myself I highly recommend Brio for its food - take the eggplant melanzane as a starter! The prices are very fair and the quality of the food is at a high standard. You will also most definitely have a fun night out with your friends at Brio as the interior and the atmosphere are amazing.

Highly recommended restaurant
My cousin and i enjoyed the food. The service was very pleasant and impressive. The maitre d and the waitresses were very helpful
and attentive. Chef was kind enough to change our sauce preference and indeed enjoyed the seafood pasta so much.
We will definitely comeback and recommend this fab restaurant.

Brio Flatiron was a pleasant
Brio Flatiron was a pleasant surprise. Our decision to go here was a last minute one to do other neighborhood restaurants being booked. My party was greeted pleasantly and promptly and our special needs were met. I ordered the pasta special of the day and it was fabulous. The pasta was cooked to perfection, the flavors of the ingredients, octopus, grape tomatoes, olives, herbs and capers all combined to the perfect potpourri of flavors that awakened and pleasured my taste buds after an extremely long work day. I am recommending this restaurant to all my co-workers and friends. Bravo Brio

Food was great. Service was a little slow and unorganized. We had to consistently ask for things that we ordered. The ambiance of the place was nice and we got a table next to the window. My mother enjoyed the restaurant.

Friendly service, nice to
Friendly service, nice to sit outside. Inside was a little stuffy and dark, which is why we moved outside. Good food. The nutella crepe was okay, very sweet, and though the menu said it comes with "strawberries" there was only 1 sliced up strawberry that looked like a garnish. very nice inside, and cool bathrooms. would go back.

I've been to BRIO 4 or 5 times, and will be back. The food is delicious, authentic Italian, the wine list offers wonderful variety, and the service is always excellent. I always seem to end up choosing the risotto because they do it so well! With the floor to ceiling windows and the candelit ambiance it is always a lovely NY dining experience.

A SuperTuscan for $12 a glass? And most of the pasta dishes are gently priced. All that and (despite how gorgeous it is inside - with all that glass) seats on Broadway.

I love Brio, it's italian
I love Brio, it's italian food that is delicious. The service is great, the people are very nice and during summer they put tables outside so you can eat in the sun. Also they have a delivery service so you can habe your penne alla vodka, carpaccio or tropicale salad at home !

It's hard o find a good Italian that has well prepared and delicately cooked flavors. We all really enjoyed the food here and the servers were excellent, will definitely be going back.

We were pleasantly surprised
We were pleasantly surprised after reading mixed reviews on a number of websites. The service was attentive. Three pastas, mushroom ravioli, tonarelli cacio e pepe & rigatoni with eggplant were all flavorful & well prepared. My husband liked his Saltimbocca. We finished by sharing a tiramisu which was acceptable but not memorable. Expresso was also very good.

Brio exceeded my expectations for a chain restaurant. Table cloths and attentive and accpmodating waiters.

Good food -- but turn up the lights
We all had trouble reading the menu and had to use cell phone lights because the place is so dark. Romantic, yes, but a little impracticable. Very friendly and efficient wait staff. Eggplant appetizer and tropicale salad were both delicious, and had a very nice swordfish steak. The others all seemed pleased with their meals. and most were too full for dessert so the portions are good. Basically this is a very good restaurant with some wonderful food and an excellent staff.

This was our 2nd visit with friends. Everyone enjoyed their food but pastas were outstanding.
Four had Saltimbocca and two ordered pasta, mushroom ravioli & rigatoni nona.

We had a business dinner for party of 10. The service was wonderful & attentive. The good was exceptionally good. Better than what I remembered. We didn't hang out in the bar. But it looked lively from the amount of people around the bar area. Price as good. All in all, a very nice experience. Definitely go back again.

solid choice for italian in flatiro
rarely am i impressed with italian in NYC but this Brio had it's charms. the food was not outstanding but it was good, solid and balanced. the wine menu was kinda of boring and leaning too much on the italian side. The menus themselves were cheap photocopies that were laminated at Staples or something, but other than that, a good recommendation!
