Very good but the waiter was a hurry to rush us out the door. Our reservation was for 9 PM, and by 10 he was ready for us to leave, as he made very clear even though there were still other customers. When I questioned this, he said "they had a reservation" although we also had a reservation through Open Table.

What a great neighborhood find, righting Kipps Bay. The clientele seem local, the pace of the restaurant is relaxing and the variety of outstanding food was impressive. We had four different entrees and each exceeded expectations. We were there for a birthday celebration and the staff were particularly attentive.

It was our first time there and we'll definitely go back. It is a very nice setting; tables nicely spaced. Menu has many options and everything we tried was delicious. There weren't many servers, but they seemed to make it work.

Have come here often and always had a lovely meal. The $29 prix fixe (not listed on their website) makes it all the more appealing. Started with the large portion of grilled portobello mushrooms, and then veal piccata in a fabulous sauce with lemon and capers. You even get dessert included. Will definitely be back. Highly recommend.

Great neighborhood place. Have been several times with friends. Food is good and now even a better value since they added a $29 prix fixe option. Excellent service. Had portobello mushroom appetizer and veal scallopine main -very tender. Also a really delicious Cosmopolitan cocktail!

I think I have reviewed this restaurant before. It holds up as a great neighborhood place with reliably good food and a nice ambiance. The staff is friendly and the service is smooth. I like the fact that it is not crowded, but wish a few more people knew about this off-the-beaten-path gem. Excellent choice for a meal before or after a movie at Kips Bay AMC.

The restaurant offers a good atmosphere and decent Italian food. There is nothing that stands out -- a very average experience with average food. The service was the best part of the meal, our waiter was extremely kind and on top of refilling water and bread.

We went in the evening on a Thursday. It was the perfect atmosphere that evening for quiet Conversation. Most of the food was good, especially the striped seabass and Salmon. The cheesecake was dry and lumpy. The service was very good and was hospitable. I would go again.

One of our favorite restaurants. Food is always good, ambiance is wonderful, service is wonderful, and you can actually hear each other talk -- so great for conversation with friends.

They also have the best grilled portabella mushrooms in the city, and great chicken and veal parm, and fillet of sole francaise. Also the best real Italian ricotta cheesecake -- nice and creamy -- not too dense.

We planned my sister's Birthday there it was an amazing night of great food, drinks, family. The location of our table was perfect out of way and quiet. The food is always consistent. The warm, family feel of the place is worth trying for first time or going back over and over. Thank you to the staff and chefs for making our time at Dolcino's so memorable! Most importantly you are not rushed out you feel like you can stay and hang out and relax.

Food andservice is wonderful but the bar areas could use fixing up. They moved the bar to the front which is great but the little lights behind the bar are always off so when you talk in and when you are at a table, it is dark and depressing over there. They don't have a steady bartender, but if they did and they keep the low, little lights on, we would come in for cocktails with and without dinner. When Ramone (the owner? manager?) was there for a bit, he put the low lights on behind the bar and it came alive, but we were already at a table after going somewhere else for drinks first.

Have eaten here many times with friends, and food is always reliable with pleasant, unobtrusive service. Only downside this visit, was that they had no veal at all available quite early in the evening (5:45 or so), although there were several veal dishes on the menu. Since I was planning to order the Veal Sorrentino, this was rather disappointing. Switched to a farfalle pasta with shrimp, which was very good -- but not veal.

Love the food and service; always wonderful; but they moved the bar upfront yet don't utilize it; it's usually dark and there's no full-time bartender; they only turn on the lights behind the bar when a waiter goes to make a drink and it's a shame. If they left the little white lights on behind the bar and kept someone there, it would be so nice to sit and have some drinks before moving to a table or even just drop in for a drink. It would also be nice if they got competitive with the neighborhood on Third Ave. and had a happy hour. The lack of attention to the bar makes it hard to go too often and recommend often to others.
