Enjoy the very finest Italian cuisine at Abboccato in New York, NY. Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, it strives to present food in the most appealing ways possible, making you want to take a photo before divining into any dish served. A Zagat mentioned destination, it is a foodie's must try establishment.

The menu at Abboccato includes a prix fixe option that can also be ordered � la carte. Choices include the shareable starters like polpetti and a charcuterie plate. There are elegant soups made from scratch and irresistible antipasti like the beet salad or the burrata. Gorgeous pasta dishes and meat or seafood entr�es are just as innovative as the other menu items, and no meal is complete at Abboccato without dessert, with the strudel being particularly fantastic.

We used to love this restaurant. They had a great prix fixe meal before the theater with a varied menu. Unfortunately, they are closing their door tomorrow for good, so they were out of some menu items that we would have ordered, and the prix fixe menu was gone. The ala carte prices were high for the amount of food that was served.

It will be a loss to the neighborhood.

We regretted the Prix Fixe dinner menu is no longer available, but our a la carte choices were delicious, as well as good value.

I understand it is no longer open. Too bad, because you could get an excellent meal and walk across the street to City Center.

A very good restaurant with a varied menu offering a very convenient location across from City Center. Excellent staff, considerate service, and a relaxed setting.

Food was good and service was excellent. Great price for pre-fixe lunch. Time was good to catch a show

First experience at this restaurant but it will not be the last! Impeccable service, classic Italian cuisine with some interesting twists and a quiet, leisurely dining experience ideal for a romantic conversation. Try the Italian Spreads with perfectly toasted bread, Arancini had a fresh basil flavor, and Tagliatelle with bolognese ragu had a slow-cooked, savory depth. Campari margarita? -- yes, please! A tempting dessert menu but we did not partake. Looking forward to another visit.

I've gone past this restaurant on my way to City Center many times, and since not much of the restaurant is visible from the street, I ignored it. Last week, I attended a matinee at City Center and did not wish to venture too far for a restaurant that would serve dinner at the early hour of 5:00 pm, so I walked into Abbocato and was quickly seated. They have a price-fixed dinner for a reasonable price that turned out to be quite delicious. I expect to be back to Abbocato next season when I renew my subscription to City Center.

Often eat there , pre-theatre. Fine food and service, very convenient to New York City's City Center.

I like to eat at Abbocato when I am attending a performance at New York City Center across the street. For these events it is essential to book a week or more in advance. The entrees are fairly expensive (many over $30) but there is a well priced pre-theater menu which offers 3 choices in each category of starter, main course, and dessert. One of the entree choices is always a pasta. Desserts include tiramisu and panna cotta. The food is definitely well above average in quality, without being pretentious. Staff are pleasant and they always get you out the door in time for your show.

This restaurant should be perfect for those attending Manhattan Theatre Club performances or other events at City Center. It is fairly attractive. But the food was served cold, and there was nothing that was very good. The entrees were left out for too long and I guess the kitchen is far away. We ordered a plate of biscotti with our coffee and they were tasteless. What a disappointment. Our first visit to this place.

Calm and comfortable spot in the West 50s that has a great prix fixe for lunch. Food is very good and the service is excellent.

The waitresses do not pay attention AT ALL. The bartender does not know how to make the simplest drink - Manhattan????
The food while hot had absolutely no seasoning or taste.
Don't waste your money on this one.

This was my second time dining at Abboccato, the first time being 4 years ago after my college graduation at City Center across the street. The food was excellent, location cannot be beat.

The maitre d', a gentleman from Morocco, does a brilliant job of greeting guests and making sure everyone is comfortably served before departing to Encores at City Center.

Wonderful meal anytime and excellent service. Have dined with friends/relatives with food allergies, never any issues from the kitchen. Range of things to choose from while having a compact menu
