A word from Sirio Ristorante
Inspired by the high style aesthetic of 1960’s Italy, “Sirio Ristorante is my chance to offer diners an opportunity to experience the cuisine that my family and I enjoy while dining out throughout Italy,” said Sirio Maccioni.



Born and raised in Roncegno, Italy, Executive Chef Massimo Bebber is thrilled to join the Maccioni family legacy with his new position as executive chef at Sirio Ristorante New York. He looks forward to putting his own twist on the restaurant’s seasonal Italian cuisine.

    Service was very slow, took forever to see a waiter and we had to aknowledge him that we were ready to order. No one checked on us in between. Very disappointing! The food was just ok. The only positive is the nice dining room and the fact that is quiet and you can have a conversation, but I won't go back!

    Availed of restaurant week special lunch. Loved it. Decide to go back for dinner past restaurant week. Excellent service, very attentive but not obtrusive. Architectural dessert is what this group of restaurants is known for. Delicious beignets with different ice cream flavors. Luxury liner dining atmosphere reminded us of our recent Crystal Serenity cruise.

    Compared to Sirio's other operations, food is surprisingly well prepared, and staff is 100 percent professional. Still, this location seems to be cursed - barely more than a dozen diners on a Restaurant Week Sunday evening.

    We went to Sirio for Restaurant Week... and they went the extra mile by trying to but together a great Lunch; some places try to skimp... but they did not... however if I was paying full price, I'd say it was a bit pricey... . The setting is very elegant, and a great place to bring out-of-towners. The food was very good... and would have earned top ranking except my fish dish arrived room temperature and had to be sent back...but when it reappear it was sizzling and tasted so much better, Also they ran out of a dessert (how can this happen when they only offer two desserts) .. The service was very good - the wine selection nice... but the best is the elegance of the surroundings - definitely high class... I will go again.

    Dined on 2/27/2014
    I went to Sirio with a friend for lunch last week for Restaurant Week. We were looking for a location on the UES that we hadn't been to before and chose Sirio. I couldn't be happier with our choice. The meal was absolutely delicious! Both my friend and I had a fabulous meal. The service was also wonderful. My friend informed our waiter that he didn't eat gluten and the waiter was very helpful with helping him select from the available choices, a gluten free meal. He also assured us that he'd make a note to the chef that he didn't eat gluten. Both of our meals were superb! The chicken was probably the best chicken meal I've ever had out! Plus we were back at work before we were missed for too long. Overall, it was a wonderful meal!

    Had a late lunch there with a group of four during Restaurant Week based on reviews here, and we were NOT disappointed. Overall, the meal was great! We all started with the beet salad - perfect beets and (most importantly for me) the salad was perfectly dressed. Tagliatelle and Carbonara entrees both spectacular, and the tiramisu was one of the best I've had. The service was good, not great. Things started off great - our waiter was able to answer somse questions on the menu, make some recommendations and clearly knew what he was talking about (and he steered us straight). While the actual food service went off without a hitch, I did have en empty water glass in front of me for like 45 minutes. Other than that, loved it - I'll be back!

    Sirio was a great business lunch spot for restaurant week. It certainly had a bit of an old school upscale vibe, so not a place I'd go on a date, but certainly nice for work lunches or client entertaining. Food was very good and the portions weren't too small like some places do during restaurant week.

  • 2014 Restaurant Week at Sirio

    Dined on 2/18/2014
    Tried Sirio Ristorante on a Tuesday evening for Restaurant Week with a few friends. The restaurant is elegant but not overstated or stuffy. It harkens back to different time in the NY restaurant scene, perhaps the 1950's or 60's but does not feel old or dated. Long bar at the entrance with large screen TV's. The dining room has pleasant decor and the tables are nicely spaced. This being a snowy Tuesday the place was moderately crowded, about 1/3rd full, but with just the right level of buzz. Service was friendly and professional throughout from reception, to bartender to servers. My party all enjoyed the generous restaurant week portions but the regular menu is surprisingly reasonable for a restaurant like this. Highly recommended.

    Food was great (albeit, the appetizers were very small and costly). I did not expect the special to be $55, so be prepared for that. Also, the service was very negligent. We kept having to remind our waitress of the most simple things (can we please see the wine list, asked 3 times, eventually gave up), can we get butter for the bread, can we see the desert menu... etc. Not good. Lastly, the restaurant tries to be high end. But for a high end restaurant, they need to watch the details (ex: tea/coffee only have packaged sugars when they should also offer cubed sugars and should offer to refill the water when your tea diffuser is empty). They are still relatively new, so I hope they will make the requisite changes and continue to improve.

    This was our third time at Sirio, but the first since they got a new chef. I can tell the difference and it's not good. I was so looking forward to the branzino and it was not nearly as exciting and tasty as by the original chef. The appetizers, burrata and a beet salad, were lacking as well. . However, the service and the wine were wonderful. Finally, the desserts were small and also nothing to write home about. It will be awhile before i go back.

    Amazing experience. Incredible food, beautiful space, and attentive service. Sirio is a nod to top-knotch Manhattan dining that's become a thing of the past in other restaurants. Great for special occasions and celebrations, but also nice for a regular night out-- it's hard not to feel special here.
