Very good food and ambiance. Everything was very well done except we were with our kids and wish they had a few items priced for kids. $20 for a bowl of buttered pasta seemed excessive, other than that all was good.

The food was delicious and authentic. The ambiance is a little fancier than the "casual elegant" led us to believe so we were a bit underdressed but it was very nice. Overall my only complaint was that it was difficult to get our waiter's attention through the night and when we'd flag down the maitre de or bus buys they'd all just refer us our waiter.

Some of the BEST Italian any of us have had (and that's saying a lot) .... food was absolutely outstanding, real old school joint where if you've got a vowel at the end of your name you'll be at home. Carbonara Killer, Gnocchi gorgonzola amazing, Veal scaloppini out of this world.... This restaurant is now in the rotation... big time...

Do not go to this restaurant if you have more than four in your party! It is a lovely, intimate environment much better suited for romance; not celebration. As a party of 8 including a few kids, we were treated dismissively, at best.

We ate there several years ago and it was magnificent. On this trip, I would not say the same. The price of wine by the glass has increased, but so has the portion size, as I didn't finish my entree and last time we had room for dessert. We started with the lobster/angel hair pasta appetizer, and it didn't disappoint. My husband had a veal dish which he really enjoyed. I had a salmon meal with mustard sauce, and it was a little disappointing. The accompanying shrimp was wonderful, and while the mustard sauce was nice, the flavor got monotonous with so much fish. There were a few stalks of asparagus to eat as well, but I would have preferred a smaller plate or less fish and another accompanying item on the plate. The service was also slower than last time (though the restaurant was busier), but the biggest complaint may have been just how quiet it was. We were uncomfortable using our regular speaking voices, even with the little bit of background music being played.

I went here for my birthday dinner with friends. We set at the table close to restrooms/kitchen and my friend was wearing short skirt. She said chair cushion felt scratchy and towards end of dinner, she said her thigh was itchy. We didn't think much of it until we left the restaurant. She had so many bug bites!! Be aware of fleas on chairs!!
Food was ok but salty.

We have been going to De Grezia for many years and have always found the food to be excellent (we usually don't use the menu since we know what is available, other than the nightly specials). I especially love the pear salad and the veal dish. My wife did try something different last night and loved the lobster pasta, the best she has ever had. The staff always remembers our dietary issues (my wife prefers chamomile tea and I start off with a Pinot Grigio).

We were seated next to a noisy table in a half-empty restaurant. When I asked for a different table we were seated under a loudspeaker. The head waiter then tried to pass off a later vintage of the wine I ordered without saying anything. Throughout, the service and food was mediocre. I was badly mislead by the favorable Zagat reviews. No wonder the restaurant was half empty at 8 p.m. on a Friday evening.
