The restaurant was well worth
The restaurant was well worth the ride from our hotel on Central Park South. As soon as we were seated we were provided with a tasty array of complimentary munchies. We had decided to share a number of appetizers and they were automaically plated for each person...a very nice touch. Entrees among our group included meat,fish and pasta. All dishes were delicious and more than ample. Only a couple of us had room left for desser, but those that did, were not disappointed. The staff were extremely pleasant and attentive. They made you feel like you were dining with old friends. Our only regret was that we live too far to dine here more frequently!

I've eaten in many of the
I've eaten in many of the best restaurants in the country and I've never had better service, warm, vibrant, quick to anticiipate needs. There were 3 in our party. The appetizers and the entrees were excellent with one exception, my entree, which was a lobster ravioli with a too heavy cream sauce. I had them take it away and bring me something else, which they did promptly and the substitute a pasta with sea food dish in a light wine sauce was excellent. All in our party agreed, a wonderful find. Only one caveat: the acoustics in the place aren't great, not terrible, but I prefer a little more quiet.

Went here on last minute choice and was not dissapointed. While the prices were higher than I like the service more than made up for this. Waiters are constantly bringing you little tidbits of food and the overall experience was great.

Another Memorable Evening....
We try to dine at Acappella whenever we are in NYC. It's out favorite place for celebratory occasions! We always receive a warm welcome, and feel as if we're at "home" amongst friends!
From the warm service, to the fabulous food to the house-made grappa and flaming desserts it's sure to be a diner's delight!
We have, and continue to have a very special place in our heart for the staff at Acappella!
4/26/2013 4:00:00 PM
The staff made my party feel like family from the time we entered the restaurant until we parted. The food was very rich and flavorful. This location is great for both special occasions and business luncheons. The location is very convenient and accessible by all forms oftransit.

Great old school Italian meal
I live about 1/2 a block from Acappella, and can't believe last night was my first time here. It has an old school upscale Italian dining feel. The service is fantastic, I especially loved the guy who explains the specials. Immediately after taking our drink order, we were served fresh brushchetta, parmesan, fried zucchini, and a cured meat. We ended up ordering mostly specials, starting with a portabella mushroom, app, then had the squid ink pasta, followed by the veal scallopine. After our delicious meal, we were served complimentary grappa, which was a little strong for me but a nice finishing touch. I thought it was very reasonably priced for what we got. The food was all fresh and well prepared. I will be back.

Always great food and services at Acappella. Dinning room is nice with high ceilings and brick walls adorned with tapestry's Wine list is strong on Italian vintages.

Always a special night
They treat you like royalty at Acappella. The second you sit down, you immediately have a drink list, water, bread, an appetizer, and a great chunk of parmesan cheese. Sometimes 5 different people will be delivering all of those items to you. You feel like the most important person in the room. The ambiance is fantastic. The food is always wonderful. My husband's favorite dish is the open flame pork. It is romantic, elegant, and worth every penny. We usually finish our night with some grappa or lemoncello. The wine list is extensive, and there is something for every budget. We love this restaurant and go there once a year (since we are from Boston).
5/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Truly a great Italian experience. We felt like like longtime customers on our first visit. Pasta was perfect, as was the lamb. Worth the trip to the financial district for a great dinner.

Sole of the matter
I rarely have time for a mid-week business lunch and headed to Acappella somewhat reluctantly. Arriving at this well-appointed, if somewhat old world italian restaurant did little to assure me that this would be anything other than a long, drawn-out tiresome chore. Low and behold, the service was attentive without being over-bearing and the dover sole, prepared at the table, was exceptional! We were in and out in under an hour and I am still thinking about the fish, weeks later.

Excellent Food, Service & Ambience
A special restaurant with great food, attentive service and east to talk in a no rush environment. Had a portobello mushroom that was outstanding with fresh Branzini. Espresso with Grappa after. Special place good for business lunches.

My first time at Acappella but it won't be my last. Excellent Italian fare with service to match. Very welcoming management. A winner.

I've been to Acappella with my wife several times....this was the first time entertaining work colleagues and friends. This place never ever disappoints me! The food is outstanding (try the Veal Chop Mt. Etna!!) and the service is second to none! From the minute you walk through the door you're made to feel like family! Looking forward to a return visit on 7/13!

My Highest Compliment: Authentic !!
This was my 6th or 7th time at this awesome Italian restaurant. From the moment I walk in the door, to the moment I leave, the place feels like family. The service is impeccable. From the host to the maitre'd to the wait staff, just amazing.
And by the way, the food is spectacular. My son had the veal chop, which as a Texas-size high school offensive lineman, he found to be as tasty as it was filling. The rest of our meals were off the chart awesome. I ordered the lobster ravioli off menu and in addition to a sauce that brought out and enhanced the flavor of both the pasta and the ravioli, the chef was kind enough to sprinkle the entire dish with pieces of lobster.
Not enough superlatives ... what a great restaurant!!

Very expensive! More of the offerings are specials than on the printed menu and they don't provide pricing in their recitation so the bill was a bit of a shock. The food was excellent and the service attentive but bring your extra wallet.

Fascinating place you really do feel like you are in a scene from the God Father. The amazing staff make you fell like you are truly in Italy. The decor is a little dated and old but this adds to the charm of the place. The food is also amazing the sampler plates are a real treat for being able to try many of the great dishes which they have to offer.

Old School White Tablecloth Italian
Time warp to a 60's - 70's top end Italian joint. Solicitous service. Excellent takes on classic Italian delivered with a flourish. I ordered pasta off the menu and the waiter saw that I got a delicious take on the requested theme. A Portobello appetizer special was very nice. The feel is either retro or geriatric, depending on your sensibilities. It's in Tribeca, so maybe retro. Very quiet the day we went in for lunch.

If you are looking for a romantic restaurant with top notch food and service this is the place for you. The staff treats you like family from the moment you walk through the doors.

I had been to Accapella once before and enjoyed it so much I took a girlfriend from London there this past Saturday. From the moment we walked in the door until we left we were very well looked after. After we were told the 'specials' we didn't even need to look at the menu! Although from the quick peek I had it looked lovely.

Good food - attentive service
We were led to our table where an army of staff greeted us. Throughout our dinner the service was constant and very professional. Food was very good from pasta dishes to veal. Wine list is extensive although pricey. Noise level is high but then again this is NYC.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
From the decor to the service to the food...this is classic Italian all the way...a lost art...and one that I'm glad I found.
The food was delicious - the complimentary grappa at the end of the meal was a lovely touch...and the personal service from the waitstaff made my father's birthday a truly special evening.

We were celebrating Veteran's Day for my brother and had a magnificent time.
Wonderful atmosphere, knowledgeable staff and by the end of the night, you will feel like you are transported into northern Italy for few hours without flying!
The food was absolutely delicious and the service was impeccable. They even gave us dessert "on the house" in honor of Veterans' day.
Thank you for making this special day even better!

If I could do 10 Stars I would
What a wonderful, pleasant, friendly, comfortable, most upscale experience I have ever had. I entertain for a living and this has to be one of the best experiences from start to finish I have had. I took a groups of 8, mixing family and business people together. While you should expect food to be of a certain quality and selection at an establishment of this level ( which expectations were exceeded), it was our table captain and his servers that made this a most memorable experience for a group of out of towners...
Go, eat, enjoy. I very seldom do the same restaurants when traveling but I will definetely be taking my own family there next trip!
11/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food, service, wine list was amazing. Made a huge impression on the woman I was went for a first date.
The maître d' made you feel like a regular the minute you walk in the door.
I am looking forward to my next visit back to this restaurant.

ACADEMY OF CULINARY PROFESSIONALS
Everything was great, from the nice greeting we got as we entered to the end of the meal. The wine steward was especially helpful. All of the courses were terrific, and well presented. We asked for a quiet table, and were seated in a nice area in a corner.
If you are seeking to splurge on an exquisite dinning experience, in a quite setting with a few special people, this is the place for you. The food was divinely prepared and presented course by course. A very knowledgeable and attentive staff made sure our glasses were always full (both water and wine). An experience I hope to re-peat.

Acappella: a lovely meal
My husband and I were first diners of the evening. Service was over-the-top, for instance refilling our water glasses after we had had each sip. Delicious Parmesan was served out of a Parmesan wheel as a complimentary introduction to the evening. We shared a delicious rigatoni appetizer, which featured sausage and mushroom in a cream sauce. The kitchen was glad to divide the salad, which we also shared. The chicken breast entree special was lovely. We were surprised not to be able to wait until after the appetizers were served to decide on our entrees. The server insisted we place our order all at once. It's easy to suspect they do that because the appetizers would have sufficed for an entire meal.

Dining in Italy
Service was impeccable and the food excellent. You feel like you are dining in Italy! I will definitely go back.
12/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
We had been to Acappella about 5 years ago during a visit to NYC and had a first class dining experience. When returning with friends we wondered if it would still be as wonderful and are happy to say that it was, Sergio and his team are incredible! The service is very attentive, the food is outstanding and the restaurant is always hopping. We will definitely return any time we have reason to be in New York!
