Best veal Parm I have had in a long time. This place is very much “old nyc” which is great. It gets loud, but that’s part of the charm. Great service.

I take everyone to Ecco when they come in from out of town. I’ve never had a bad meal there and the service and staff are top shelf. I’d recommend it to anyone.

A piece of history. Much of the restaurant and Bar are 19th Century. Some carefully preserved. White table cloth, waiters in uniforms with ties, bartender white shirt, tie, fills the part.
Specials each day, pre fixed mid week lunch 3 course $28 in Manhattan! We would go again.

Still the best, the fish and veal cannot be beat. Reasonable wine prices are just an added extra!

Ecco remains some of the best Italian fare in NYC. Ecco is the ideal combination of "red sauce joint" and a fine dining experience. 20 years ago, there were few places to eat this well in the Financial District. Now there are, and I still choose Ecco. Excellent wine selection, generously poured cocktails, and specials that are truly special (we just had the dover sole, which was excellent, but the lamb osso buco is surely the winner). Menu staples include an outstanding bone-in veal chop (cotoletta) alla parmigiana, pasta dishes, and steaks. Old world service and attention to detail make Ecco an authentic dining experience. Plus there's cannoli.

I have been going here for 30 years. The place used to be fantastic, but now it is just tired. My wife ordered the Snapper special, it was old fish drenched in butter and garlic. Tasted so fishy that we just sent it back. My veil was thawed and plated, it tasted like styrofoam.

Enjoyed a very nice dinner this evening with my wife. Restaurant was pleasantly busy and the staff seemed to handle it well; welcoming, attentive service. We split a caesar salad and had the shrimp/mushroom pasta and seafood pasta. Light marinara sauce was very tasty and pasta cooked al dente - excellent. Dessert was chocolate cake and we both really enjoyed the deep chocolate flavor and moistness.

We're visiting from out of town but will return on our next trip to NY!

This was my third time to Ecco and it continues to impress. The food is fantastic and the service is superb. It is charming, comfortable and quiet enough to have a conversation with your friends.

While I've dined here for both business and pleasure, this event was business in nature. The staff recognized that and provided an uncrushed experience combined with the superb food and service that makes this establishment an absolute gem.

The service was great. The waiter was very attentive and the service was quick. The food was very good and the dessert even better. We sat in a cozy table for two and with the way the tables are set up, we really didn't notice how many people were actually there until we left. If you want a high quality restaurant where you can escape the office for an hour and actually make it back in time, this is the place for you.

They knew it was our anniversary at the end of the meal they brought us 2 glasses of champagne and biscotti which was delicious. We had a bottle of wine and they were always there to pour our glasses which were never empty. We love this restaurant

We chose this place as it had pretty good reviews. Well that’s a lesson learned! We simply cannot believe they are not posting their own positive reviews after the fiasco of our meal.

My wife’s appetiser was disgusting. It was a shrimp cocktail. Basically 6 decent sized prawns served on ice, yes ice. The sauce was in a separate ramekin and turned out to be tomato ketchup, honestly it was .My Caesar was pretty good though.

The main then came out immediately. My wife had gnocchi in a pesto sauce. It was swimming in it and soggy. I had chicken with sausage and mushrooms. It was swimming in a disgusting sauce that for some reason had a rediculous of lemon in it. The side dish was cold and tasteless.

When I complained the manager on duty told me that shrimp cocktail should be served with tomato sauce. I asked him if he had ever had any formal trading, he simply stated how long he had worked there, but then asked me to write my complaints down to give to the owner! He would not acknowledge anything was wrong at all despite my asking him to try my food he refused.

This was, without exception,
the worst meal we have had in 10 years.

Someone had put that the food was the best in New York. I seriously doubt it but if it is I feel sorry for all New Yorkers and visitors!

If you want to me more disappointed than a bride whose husband falls asleep on their wedding night, go here, if not go anywhere else, even McDonalds.
