We have eaten several times there and every experience has been amazing. The sushi was fresh, the tempura was flaky and tender. The Hokkaido uni is the best uni and plentiful. The freshest ingredients are used from the seafood to the vegetables. The service is first rate.

My wife enjoyed every dish our sushi chef crafted for us, especially the sea urchin roe from Japan combined with salmon roe. The service was as attentive as the food was elegant and delicious. A culinary treat.

During this time we will not be open for dine-in service, but we will be offering take-out service. Please contact the restaurant for details.

The instant you walk into Italianissimo Ristorante, you are overcome with a feeling of romance. When you arrive, your hosts for the evening sits you at a table adorned with gorgeous fresh flowers that evoke a certain elegance and charm. The maitre d' presents to you the nightly specials that Chef Luigi Campoverde (who is no stranger to the Upper East Side, with stints at Il Nido, Il Monello and Portofino Grill) is about to prepare in the kitchen.
