I'm a local, and this is my favorite Little Italy spot! The garden is such an oasis. Perfect for a family dinner, group of friends, etc. Great service, food and all else!
Great food & felt authentic (coming from someone who has spent 5 months in Italy bc of work). We arrived 30 mins early to our reservation, and they were able to seat us, even with it being busy. Great wine list. Very good service!
I came here for dinner on Saturday night & was seated in a lovely tent-covered back patio with trees, plants & Roman statues. I enjoyed my authentic fresh Italian meal — Rigatoni alla Nonna, with a glass of California Riesling. The chocolate-covered vanilla ice cream bomba & cappuccino were also good, as well as the complimentary plate of freshly-fried zeppoli covered with powdered sugar.
A talented singer Francesca entertained us with familiar songs (At Last; New York, New York; and other “oldies”). It was fun that a few guests requested songs — for a 40th wedding anniversary; an engagement & 2 birthdays!
The masked wait staff were very attentive & kind. The tables are well placed for social distancing. I’ll be dining here again! Highly recommend.
There is an outdoor garden area which is spacious and great for a get together or date night. Service was great and the staff was very attentive and topping up water constantly.
Food wise is very authentic and both the pasta and pizzas were great options
The food was absolutely delicious and the service impeccable. We thoroughly enjoyed dining in the backyard garden area. I haven't had stuffed zucchini blossoms in a number of years and was thrilled it was a special.
Outside of Italy, this is the best Italian food you’ll find! Everything from the service to the food is utterly outstanding. I highly recommend the carbonara, gnocchi, as well as the stuffed zucchini flowers. Great wine list, too! You will not be disappointed!
Always great for decades
Love this place! The pizza is just outstanding! Awesome service and prices are fair.
The food is amazing and service was great thank you !! We will back soon
Made a reservation through Opentable, when we showed up we were told that they were closed while still waiting on tables. When I mentioned that we had made a reservation online, they completely disregarded it and just responded “WE ARE CLOSED“.... I did make a reservation and I understand that it is possible there may be discrepancies when making a reservation through a third-party application, but to completely ignore the fact that we made reservations and brush us off that way with complete disregard is extremely unprofessional. WE WILL NEVER COME BACK AGAIN AND WILL ADVISE OTHERS TO DO AVOID THIS PLACE.
We loved our service as well as our meal. We didn’t feel rushed. Thank you for an enjoyable evening out in little Italy.
The food was delicious. The chicken parmigiana was great. My friend had the rigatoni with vodka sauce and she really liked it. Our waters were constantly getting filled which was great because we never ran out even though we kept drinking water throughout dinner. The service was great. Hopefully one day I can come back. I highly recommend it.
Wonderful food and enjoyed the outdoor dining in front.
Upon arriving at Da Nicos
The staff was very welcoming
We were escorted to their outdoor garden area which was very comfortable.
The wait staff was very professional in explaining all of the dinner specials
And if there was anything we might need to just ask.
Meals where very fairly priced cooked to perfection.
My girlfriend and I would definitely return to Da Nicos for another fabulous meal.
It was great to sit outside and have a nice lunch. Delicious as always.
What an excellent experience! Please go and check out the open streets here, they do a fantastic job, food is divine,the table service is excellent, and everyone is being very safe with masks!
5star food/service with reasonable prices! Fabulous garden!
Very nice spot- delicious pizza !
I’ve eaten here before so I wouldn’t be coming back if I didn’t love the food and the staff!! From the second you walk in it feels like family. From the cocktails and appetizers to the veal piccata to the dessert, everything was delicious! Plus I love the ambiance of the patio behind the restaurant ❤️ This is definitely a stop for locals and tourists alike!! Plus, enjoy Little Italy!🇮🇹
Great pasta and service
Treated two out of state girls like queens
Service is great. The food is authentic and delicious.
Food was delicious and we did not wait to long. The risotto frutti de mar was fresh and well seasoned. Ricotta pie was very traditional. The extras like the bruschetta, zippolis and fresh fruit was an extra bonus and will keep me coming back.
We were early for reservation and they still seated us promptly. Food was hot and plentiful. Pizza was better than most in Little Italy. Our “go to” when visiting NYC.
Great food and great restaurant. Would absolutely eat here again.
The only reason I don't give 5 stars is that the glassware needed to be washed and dried more thoroughly before being used. The water glasses were especially dirty.
Our waiter was very attentive, explained the menu well and had a nice personality. We didn't have to wait long for our meal and it was delicious. It was a comfortable setting and we would definitely return. The birthday dessert was phenomenal. Thank you for making that ending very special!
I found the walls and decor to be a bit plain. Consider Italian paintings, attractive lighting, attention to color, or an interesting sculpture that equals the excellent food.
Just good Italian food!!!
DaNico never fails. Great food and amazing service and hospitality. Take my family here everytime we come into the city
Authentic Italian located in Little Italy...all four of us LOVED our entrees and were thrilled to be served the powdered sugar topped zeppoli automatically included with our meals. Decent wine selection and coffee options. Loved it so much we almost came back the next day to try different entrees!!
Best food in Little Italy!!
Great dinner!! Service was OK- dinners came out at different times
Da Nico Ristorante is our favorite NYC restaurant! We have been dining here with family and friends for years. It never disappoints! We had a large party of 12, most of whom had never been and we had a fantastic time! The wait staff was attentive, speedy and generous. When one of our orders came out incorrectly, they fixed it immediately and gave the guest a free glass of wine for the mix up. We even had zeppolis as a thank you from them. We cannot wait to go back!
Absolutely fantastic! Amazing service, delicious food!!
Every thing was perfect. Got right in, good table, good food, good service. Nice atmosphere, all around great place.
The service was incredibly quick, and they gave us free zeppoles at the end of the meal, which was delightful.
Great food, great service.
Definitely coming back. Love this place and the Food was wonderful
Was very disappointed with the pizza. In the photos on the website, it looked crispy and when it arrrived at our table, it was very doughy...
Delicious food and wine. One of those restaurants where you could either dress up for date night or go casually with your family. No kid's menu per se but ask your waiter for some recommendations. My 6-year old wanted sauteed shrimp and although it wasn't on the menu they made it happen without question. Do not leave there without getting their broccoli! Oh my gosh so delicious! Homemade ravioli and gnocchi are delicious as well. Everything we ordered was great.
Seems to be the place to go to celebrate birthdays; when we went there there were five birthday celebrations in the hour we spent there!
It was delicious and service was impeccable
