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.

    We highly recommend Sirio's!! This is our go to place for lunch and dinner. The décor is sleek and understated. The food is superb, the wine list is a sommelier's dream, and most of all, the staff is gracious, attentive and knowledgeable. A true find on FIFTH AVENUE!!

    In a restaurant at this location ( Pier!) and the prices, I expected a better service! The bread I had to ask twice! They wanted to take away my plate with food before I finish! And didn't even ask! The food was nothing special, pasta was overcooked and maybe warmed up in the microwave? Not the place I would go back!

    Sirio is a great Italian option for lunch or dinner in The Plaza district. The location can't be beat, in the Pierre Hotel on 5th Avenue & 61st Street. Once inside, there's a nice bar area up front which looks like a great place to grab an after-work cocktail. Behind is the dining area. I came here for a business lunch and was not disappointed - my pasta and starter were delicious, the service was friendly and fast, and the room was elegant and not too noisy. Would definitely return.

    We caught one of the final days of Restaurant Week and the food was delicious. I had a tasty salad and brook trout and both were beautifully prepared. The desert - tiramisu - was memorable. I plan to go back as a regular customer since Sirio is in my neighborhood. The staff were friendly and attentive.

    We enjoyed the restaurant week dinner menu very much. The portions were small but appropriately so for a three course meal. Our reservation was confirmed, we were greeted pleasantly, and the wait staff was very efficient and courteous. The presentation of the food was very appealing and the ambient attractive. For a Park Avenue location, it was a nice surprise not to encounter a stuffy atmosphere.

    We had a very good experience at Sirio. We had lunch. The service was good. The food was good. The powder room was very clean and beautifully designed. We passed through the elegant Pierre lobby and admired the murals and the beautiful marble staircase. We have eaten at La Cirque quite a few times (always excellent) and at Circo (also excellent). We intend to return to all three: La Cirque - Circo - Sirio. Thank you for such a nice experience at all you restaurants. After lunch we crossed Fifth Avenue and strolled through Central Park, which is always pleasurable. The park was crowded with tourists They really seemed to enjoy themselves!

    This was my second visit to this restaurant. Both times we came during Restaurant Week--once for lunch and once for dinner. This past time, I took a friend for lunch for her birthday. We both enjoyed our food. This time, I thought the waitress was less attentive. I had to call for water a few times. Also thought we should have been given ice water instead of lukewarm water. Other than that, I thought that everything else was just fine.

    Nothing to eat, and not testing good. The carpaccio and the pasta are a proper swindling. Not only not tasting good: only four ridiculously small pieces of beef with one drop of olive oil for the carpaccio and the pasta weren't fresh. Avoid at any cost.

    We went to this restaurant to take advantage of the restaurant week pricing. It was a nice experience, but I would not pay the big $$$ to eat there. I did not think it was fabulous looking. The ceiling in the place was very low. The food was what you would expect from a place at this price point, but there was nothing really outstanding except the address. Sirio did better with Le Cirque.

    This was our first time at Sirio. We wanted to try a new restaurant and we discovered Sirio on the restaurant week list. I loved my salad. The chicken was plentiful and delicious. The tiramisu was also a generous portion and delicious. My friend ordered the wine pairings and was very satisfied with the choices. We were both confused by the pasta entrée. There was so little pasta on the plate that it seemed to be an appetizer not a main course. Fortunately, I was given so much chicken for my meal that I shared it with him. I do not understand this. Pasta is inexpensive. There should have been more pasta. It does not make sense to skimp on that. Strange.

    We tried Sirio for the first time during Restaurant week. I would rank it with my special occasion go tos, la Grenouille and Bernadin, as far as occasion, but the vibe is a bit more Aretsky's Patroon...sophisticated, unfussy. The kind of place where it's about the evening and the conversation, not food worship. That said, food was exquisite. Great light salad perfectly dressed, beautiful scallops in a very pretty presentation, nice desserts. Atmosphere was quiet and reserved, staff was warm and professional.

    The wait staff was very helpful in selecting wine and dinner options, especially since we are both gluten free and my friend has even more food allergies. Even the gluten free bread was fabulous. Portions were more generous than I am used to at nice places, for those of you who like that sort of thing. It was quiet and seemed to have a decent bar scene. I would definitely go back.

    Sirio started out being a terrific "up town" Italian restaurant with an impressive pedigree. But our recent meal was anything but delicious, and I'm not sure why. I'm guessing Italian and Pierre are just not a winning combo, and the place is just barely holding on. The place was three quarters empty on a Friday evening -- not a good sign. Our meals -- a lump crab pasta and a mushroom pasta were almost inedible. The salads, however were surprisingly fresh and satisfying. Unless Sirio gets its act together quickly, I'm guessing it won't be around in ninety days. We certainly won't be back...

    Excellent dinner recommendations by our waitstaff. We had morel mushrooms and another kind of mushroom appetizer white asparagus dish special which had parmesan foam. The large scallop risotto was tasty and really delicious. Veal Parmigiana was extremely savory and not the cookie cutter kind. Service was truly impeccable. Our very nice waiter was so knowledgeable and unobtrusive which made our night. My out of the country guest loved the NY experience because of Sirio.

    When we arrived at the restaurant I was presented with a menu tailored to my food allergies - it was personalized and amazing!!! (I use Open Table to reserve whenever possible so that I may advice in writing of my allergies in advance.) I have never, in 40 years of eating in outstanding restaurants had this level of service. Having severe allergies and eating in restaurants is usually stressful, as you never know how seriously the restaurant will regard the allergy. This personalized menu, plus the servers confirming with each course be presented that the allergies had been avoided, really made for a relaxed evening enjoying great food! A special thanks to Annalisa!
