A word from A Voce Madison
The word is out: Marlon Abela, the restaurateur behind London's Michelin one-star with two-stars rising Greenhouse, has opened a new modern Italian restaurant A Voce ("word of mouth") on the edge of chic Madison Square Park. The emphasis is on grown-up, deeply delicious Italian cookery set against a back drop of Italian style and organic East Coast elements.

    Service was excellent and food is very good. Service seemed a little rushed for a restaurant that was maybe 1/2 full. The wine list is long and very pricey. A retail $25 that goes for $87 on their list seemed a bit extreme. Overall a very nice restaurant just be sure to there is plenty of room on your credit card limit.

    Lasting impressions: the professional yet warm welcome from the charming hostess... an intimate curved booth perfect to see the lovely room while enjoying a private conversation... the signature cocktail was a home run: an intriguing twist on an old favorite ... delicious, creative, beautifully balanced food: perfectly seasoned starter, exquisite pasta, heavenly poultry and fish... Expert advice on wine pairings steered us to a mind-blowing Brunello... Chef Ben Lee came out to say hello -- we were impressed with his quiet passion for perfection in the dining room. Altogether, a wonderful, memorable, meal. We shall return!

    We had dinner at A Voce Madison to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Although this is a highly rated restaurant, this was our first visit. It was as close to perfect as is possible. Starters (fois gras and agnolotti, were delicious and beautifully prepared. The shared steak is the find of New York. Better than any of the steakhouses we have been to, including Peter Luger and Morton's. Bombolini for dessert is a great choice as a shared finale, AND the coffee is superb.

    I eat here 8-9 times a year. The cooking is exceptional. There are always adventuresome items on the menu, I always try to have one, and I am never disappointed. Wonderful spot for a business lunch or dinner. The tables are well spaced and the noise level conducive to conversation. The wine lists looks great. I am at the restaurant mostly for lunch and seldom drink then, but the wine list is innovative and well priced. Just a great spot. The Captain does a wonderful job welcoming people.

    The menu selections were intriguing for an Italian restaurant. No heavy red sauce here, no red sauce at all. The pasta dishes were creative and delicious. I had the chicken which could be boring but here it was tasty and juicy. My daughter had the Bronzino, she said it was the best she has ever had. My appetizer, an egg dish was so good a wanted to order another . The staff is knowledgeable and always on hand. Not hovering just helpful. We had a round table for 4 with comfortable leather chairs. I will definitely go back. Oh, I forgot to mention we sat next to a well known celebrity.

Crostaceo Crudo bay scallops is full of flavor and citrus notes, scallops just melt in your mouth. Burratina another wonderful dish, delicate and flavorful at the same time. But the best highlight, Pizzoccheri! It's such an usual and regional Italian dish, so simple and unique at the same time. Thank you, Chef Lee! Thank you also to the whole staff. I will be back very soon.

    We came here for the first time for a restaurant week lunch recently and had a great time! The food was delicious - for once I couldn't get enough of my salad appetiser (I'm not really a salad person), then our choice of mains (mushroom ragu pasta and rosemary & lemon marinated chicken) was so good that we had to swap halfway through to enjoy each other's selection! Finally (during a Restaurant Week experience) the service was great - friendly, attentive, but not pushy. Also loved the cosy but airy feel of the dining room. We'll definitely be back, for lunch or dinner!
