This place is a real find. The pastas especially are phenomenal, and the service is great in part because the owner is constantly roaming the dining room, talking to guests and making sure everything is as it should be. If you want a really good, quiet, friendly Italian restaurant, then this is your place.

great food, great and expensivewine
We were close buy and were delighted to find this Italian restaurant - loved the ambience. The service was friendly and efficient. The negative was the wine were way too expensive relative to the meals - it would be great if they had more affordable choices.

Incognito Bistro Shines
Paolo and his staff have created a welcoming ambience and a stellar and creative menu. Although Italian wines predominate the list, the selection is good. Salads were fresh, crisp, and tasty and our entrees were perfectly prepared. Menu is solid and the daily specials provided options. Consistently good food. Prices are reasonable and staff is attentive and knowledgeable. A neighborhood gem.

We had a wonderful dinner.
We had a wonderful dinner. The food was great and service impeccable. They had so many specials it was hard to make up one's mind. Dessert was delicious. We saw a celebrity sitting in the back room, and immediately thought this place is perfect if you want to dine "incognito".

Divine dinner....so surprised by the vegetarian ragu had to call the server over to be sure it wasn't a mistake. Simply the best pasta ever. A dish to return for.

Amazing food & excellent service!!!
What a find! The menu reads well, extensive, diverse yet with a focus. Then the wine and food come and it's was consistently impressive. The service was sharp and made for a great meal. Truly knew their stuff but executed with sophistication and grace.
Looking for another time to get back soon! Bravo!

Good Food and Welcoming
The staff went above and beyond in making us feel welcome and special. They brought each of us a complimentary piece of pizza and made a good wine suggestion based on our general preference and price point. Food was excellent.

It's a gem.
I had a lunch with my husband a couple of weeks ago and we loved it.
I recommend Incognito for my girl friend's farewell lunch and every one loved it.
Very reasonable price of fixed lunch and excellent foods, the best thing here is very quiet that you can hear each other without shouting. Just lovely.

Always welcoming, great food
We go regularly to Incognito, and have a consistently good time. Paulo, the chef-proprietor, is always present and welcoming. Don't choose your food until you hear the extensive list of specials!

Went to dinner after a movie in the Union Square area. Being Friday night in the summer it was quite empty. There were a lot of things on the menu my goup wanted to try...noneof us were disappointed in our choices, but the portions were quite small.

Foodies (especial Italian) delight
We had a special "tasting Menu" dinner for a birthday celebration. Every course was spectacular with great wine as well. Pasta dishes were imaginative. Meat course of lamb and pork was presented with great sauces. Desert was a family style plate of 8 - 9 different deserts.
Service was personal and informative.
Great restaurant for any occasion.

I LOVE this place.
Really good Reliable food. Never a bad meal here. Service is attentive, not always in a good way.
The room is absolutely BEAUTIFUL. Very comfortable. The sound level is perfect.
This is a very adult spot to dine in.
We LOVE it.

Can't remember how many times I've been there with friends, families, and clients. The food and service made everyone so happy, always. Don't miss anything from appetizers to desserts :)

I took my wife here for a birthday dinner. The atmosphere was very nice; casual but romantic. The owner and his staff were very attentive and friendly. My veal was prepared perfectly and my wife loved her vegetable ragu. It was a great evening.

Buzzy and Delicious
Took my 24 and 25 year old "children" here for dinner. Very buzzy bar scene. Hard to hear the waiter. The food was absolutely delicious. Everything! Main meal, vegetables...bread. Very good, fairly-priced wine. Had quieted down by the time we left-nine-ish.
All three of us would go again.

The Octopus appetizer was very tasty but the "octopus" consisted of very thinly sliced tentacles, almost resembling garlic slices. And there wasn't very much of it.
Could definitely use some octopus chunks here.

Went to this restaurant before
Went to this restaurant before a show and enjoyed how quiet it was since there were 8 of us. We actually could hear one another across the table without yelling. they have a "pre-theater" menu which is a very good deal ($35 plus drinks--includes dessert). Service was exceptional.

What a great place
Everything about this place is so good. Decor is great, wonderful bar to have a drink or eat at as I did Saturday night. The food is so good HIGHLY recommend the vegetable ragu. Such a gem.

I went to Incognito for a business lunch. Not being familiar with the restaurant, I was nervous that it would not be appropriate for a lunch meeting. The restaurant was great - not too noisy, but not so quiet everyone could hear what we were saying. The food and service are top notch.

My go-to restaurant!
I really enjoy Incognito! They have friendly staff and great food. I especially enjoy the dessert menu!

My boyfriend took me there on a Saturday night. We had a reservation and were seated immediately. They were on top of their service but not hovering too much. The wine was amazing. We had the best caprese salad I've ever tasted. The mozzarella was creamy and the dressing was amazing. We split the broccoli rabe pizza and the special- an artichoke ravioli. They were both AMAZING! So incredibly delicious, I would go back in a heartbeat.

Lovely and delicious!
We were in a bit of a hurry to get to an early concert. Incognito Bistro provided us a quick, delicious dinner that didn't feel rushed but managed to get us in and out within an hour. The service was professional and friendly; the food quite good. We want to go back when we have more time to savor!
