Superb traditional Italian! And fantastic back garden. Will go again
Best Italian we've ever had! Thank you Da Nico for making our last night in New York so memorable!
Food was outstanding and service was exceptional! A definite return when I’m back in NYC
The staff was very professional and courteous and my lobster ravioli With the Vodka sauce Was fabulous Will definitely plan to return And the garden dining was great
Waiter told us that fried calamari was not available, so imagine our surprise when we saw the dish served to a nearby table. Not pleased. A waiter should know his restaurant’s menu.
Labor Day weekend. We were at pier 17 prior at Malibu Farm. Ridiculous wait and decide and prices. Had been a rough day and when we got here we were served immediately. Billy B. Was our waiter and he made us feel like we were the most important people in the restaurant. The entire staff was so accommodating and the food was delicious. Are usually think of a little Italy as tourist location but today I felt like it was home. Will be back!!
We had a great birthday celebration in the back patio. The back patio was beautiful and the service was excellent! Great for big parties!
The experience at DaNico was wonderful from start to finish. The food, drinks, ambiance, and service were spot on. This is a must, while in NYC.
The food was amazing! So was the service! Great pours!
We are here to move our son into his college dorm and decided to have dinner in Little Italy. We were so happy to find Da Nico’s where we had a fantastic meal. We were seated in the garden which I highly recommend. It’s in the back of the restaurant and very nice and quiet.
Beautiful restaurant. Great staff. Didn’t need to remind them of my wife’s birthday. They were proactive and friendly. Food was amazing!
The atmosphere here is amazing and so was the food. Love the live singer!
Food was wonderful and so was the service. I would recommend this restaurant to others looking for authentic and flavorful Italian food.
Only negative was the lack of air conditioning which is a a problem when you are drinking, eating spicy food and it is August - makes it hard to enjoy your dinner.
Everything was great! Delicious food and great service
Really nice place, such a cute vibe and very nice staff, outdoor seating is also super Instagram friendly and the inside is very classy
Absolutely tremendous experience - loved it!!!
food mediocre at best
waiter forgot salad app order
zero effort from waitstaff
Delicious red sauce Italian that will please your whole family. And our server was fantastic.
The most delicious red sauce, fabulous pasta dishes, fresh mozzarella does not disappoint!
Our friends were in from Chicago and wanted to have dinner in Little Italy. We had been to Da Nico’s several years ago. We were not disappointed.
The staff are very attentive, and the food was great.
Great Italian restaurant
Excellent food and service with a great list of daily specials.
Loved this restaurant. It was so gorgeous and the food was amazing.
Da Nico’s is a family tradition for us. We love going and the staff and food are amazing!
Great food, excellent value! The spaghetti alla carbonara was some of the best I’ve ever had!
Birthday dinner for my daughters 13th extremely accommodating for 15 people service was excellent
Superb dining experience from food to service to atmosphere. Notable menu items were the Caesar salad, beet and goat cheese salad, and best ever penne with vodka sauce. The cheeses accompanying the salads were so soft and bigger and fluffier than what you typically get.
We were seated in their outdoor, covered courtyard which felt magical at night with the overhead lights and floral displays. Great and attentive service as well by a highly professional and dedicated staff!
Great food with great service in a beautiful lively setting!
Wrong seating given to my party. Inside too loud, and felt very rushed
Not wow, great.
Was my wife’s birthday. Sent message to restaurant. Never was acknowledged.
Saturday night we sat in the back indoor room. Acoustics were very bad. Could not hear waiter or people at my own table without shouting.
Great restaurant, great food, great restaurant
Great atmosphere, great food, good people. All around, a nice place to take a family or a date to dinner.
Love Little Italy and Da Nico is a nice and authentic Italian restaurant. Food was delicious and the staff was friendly and attentive.
The food was delicious. The clams I thought were too small but tasted good. They remembered to sing Happy Birthday to my husband from when I reserved on line and asked as a special request. The coffee was slow coming and we had to remind the waiter after we finished dessert. Overall it was a good choice for lunch in Little Italy
Excellent food— we had 4 different types of pasta and all were great. Best gluten-free you can find if you need it.
Da Nico was much too crowded, our reservation was for 7:30 and we left by 8:30pm. We were rushed and our experience was unenjoyable. Food was mediocre, tables were cramped, waiter clearly wanted us in and out. Will not be returning.
Terrific food and service. never a disappointment. It can get loud in the back room, but there are plenty of places to sit if you want it more quiet.
Authentic Italian, old school done right. Great service, great food, beautiful atmosphere.
Our group of 6 went to celebrate our daughter’s wedding. We were nicely greeted, seated right away. We had attentive service, they offered great specials & also amazing menu of choices. We enjoyed everything about this place! To celebrate we were given a round of complimentary Limoncello, a fruit plate and another dessert to share. Highly recommend!
