Italian
Enjoy traditional Northern and Southern Italian cuisine at Da Nico. The beautiful indoor dining room is a favorite among movie stars, New York Yankees and former Mayor Giuliani. The casual, family-friendly atmosphere welcomes you to dine on “The Best Coal Brick Oven Pizza,” or one of the delicious items on the menu.

Specialties include lobster fra diavolo, baby lamb chops and veal chops. Call for the day’s specials.

During the summer, Da Nico features a large outdoor garden which doubles its normal seating capacity. Da Nico is also available for your private parties.

There are many keys to having a great dining experience. With that in mind, consider Da Nico the master locksmith of Little Italy!

I came to this restaurant with my family and friends to enjoy a nice dinner. In the heart of Little Italy I held high regards. And I must admit that my expectations were more than met. We experienced hospitality that felt as if you were entering their home. The staff was quick and ensured our experience was the best they could make it. With true honesty I recommend this restaurant to everyone who wants an enjoyable, warming, and delightful family dinner.

I wanted to find a nice place to take my wife on a date, and Da Nico’s didn’t disappoint. We went on a Tuesday evening and the restaurant was largely empty inside, most seated outside. Our server was attentive, and the food was great. I look forward to visiting again.

The food was really good. No complaints there. But we couldn’t tell who our server was. We had 3 different ones and none were attentive. We’d go back but if the service lacked again we probably wouldn’t.

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 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.

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.

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!
