Above all, it’s Vincenzo’s love of people that makes 83 ½ what it is: a warm, welcoming place where friends and families share their passion for food and familiar faces. We can’t wait for your family to meet ours.
Best italian on UES! Great service, great otdoor seating
the food and service are really spectacular. They have done a good job with COVID activities although their approach to heaters is not ideal. Nevertheless, this is always one of our go to places in the UES.
There are times when I dine at a neighborhood restaurant and feel like it’s overpriced. This restaurant is slightly pricier than some others, but it is worth every penny! The food is so delicious, and I’ve been thinking about it since we ate there 2 nights ago. Every thing we ordered was well received. I highly recommend the porcini tortelloni on the regular menu. And any place that starts with complimentary focaccia earns 5 stars in my book :)
As always, 83 1/2 met my expectations in that all of the food was outstanding The ambience and heating provided were very good given the dining out of doors during the pandemic. The service as great and the waiter very accommodating.
83 1/2 continues to provide good food and good service.
Pasta fagioli was delicious and warming on chilly night.
Table shared branzino regular menu item and two special entrees: salmon and pasta stuffed with pumpkin - all were outstanding!
Homemade cannolis finished this great meal.
Chef Mangiafridda and Daniel, we are looking forward to our next meal at 83 1/2!
The must go to on UES!
The best food and lovely staff!
Delicious food always, great service, friendly staff- a neighborhood favorite!
Amazing, byob on wed & thurs
Fantastic and diverse Italian with excellent service
Great food & service!!
Wonderful food (veal chop parm was incredible). Service was great. Will certainly be back!
Sat outside with tent and although weather not great it was very comfortable and protected- food and service excellent- will definitely return!
Wonderful service but were nudged out after 2 hours of outdoor eating- understandable given the limited space. Would def return!
The service is exceptional. Something that adds to the experience of dining out that is often overlooked. All of the staff and servers have been and are consistently lovely.
We had such a lovely dinner here. Delicious Veal Parm and one of the best squid ink seafood pastas I have ever had. Great outdoor dining area. And our waiter guided us perfectly with his recommendations. All around outstanding!!
Best neighborhood gem!
Neighborhood Gem. Best italian food around.
We can’t say enough about this restaurant, the food was fantastic and wait staff professional, courteous and welcoming. Can’t wait to go back!!
This place was great! The service was amazing. The servers really knew their wine and food. All super nice. This was my first outdoor dining experience in Manhattan and it was perfect. I would definitely come back!
Family dinner as usual was great!
Fantastic! Highly recommend.
The food was really good. Great pastas. We ate outside so noise level was fine. Peeked inside and have to say that the restaurant really needs an update.
So long as there is outdoor dining, I will definitely go back.
Always enjoy the wonderful food at 83 1/2 ...
Wow, some amazing dishes. Eggplant parm was outstanding, as was the sausage and sundried tomato cream pasta. Had 2 glasses of wine, 2 appetizers, 2 mail courses and it was $110. Fantastic value for top-notch food.
As usual, the food was delicious and the service brilliant. Great dinner!!
Great Food and Service!
Will be going back next week.
Very nice quaint neighborhood restaurant. Excellent food. Would be good for a special occasion
Food was outstanding, but quite pricey despite having the $$ ranking. Cozy neighborhood place, but NOT inexpensive.
Small, Italian restaurant with some delicious dishes. We went around 6 pm...empty..but restaurant filled up by 7pm. Homemade pasta, delicious appetizers and no rush....excellent service. I would definitely return.
This is one of our favorite spots and Sat did not disappoint
We will be back !
It was a surprisingly happy discovery.
The restaurant is located so close wher I live but somehow never thought about trying. Now I’ve done and I will definitely go back.
Wonderful! First time diner, will be back. Food and service excellent.
This is my second time to 8 1/2. First time we had delicious food. This time food was mediocre and bland...the branzino encrusted w zucchini and the chicken Milanese
Service and ambience still good however
Has never been a disappointment. A great neighborhood gem on a quiet street.
Great homemade pasta Greeted at the door by a warm friendly hostess and made us feel right at home
Never have a bad meal there
Daniel was an excellent server and we had an incredible dining experience for our Valentine's date. We had to change bookings last minute because the other restaurant we reserved was understaffed and poorly managed--waited for 10 minutes at the front and no host showed up even once! So we found 83 1/2 up the street and we're even more thrilled we ended up there. We will definitely be back to 83 1/2.
