We tried Ecco based on other great reviews and weren’t disappointed. Great authentic Italian food, fast service. Just what we were looking for. Would absolutely go again.

Disappointing level of service. We felt like we had to get the staff attention repeatedly throughout our meal for basics like taking our order. We wouldn’t return. Food was fine but nothing special and with the poor service there isn’t a need to ever go back, especially with so many other great NYC Italian restaurants

My wife and I have been to Ecco several times. The last visit was on a Wednesday night, a bit later in the evening than usual. The place was packed—and proportionally noisy. The after-work crowd was in charge. The food, however, was great and the service (seemingly by genuine Italian waitstaff) was surprisingly good considering the crowd. One of us had a tasty Italian-style lobster bisque and then we had two delicious veal dishes. No dessert after a hearty dinner, but we left with the intention to return soon.

This old-school Italian restaurant in the heart of Tribeca is a wonderful experience. The decor is classic dark wood, including mahogany booths; the waitstaff is helpful, cordial (and Italian!) and the food is absolutely delicious. We both had veal dishes - melt in your mouth scallopini - the Vitello a la Ecco with artichokes in a parmesan/cream sauce and the Vitello a la Marsala with sauteed wild mushrooms in a Marsala wine sauce. The side of sauted grated potato and onions was also delicious.
We will certainly return when we are in that part of the city again. A very enjoyable evening!

I discovered Ecco during the summer of 2001 while working as an intern in the WTC. It has remained my favorite restaurant in NYC to this day. The service is impeccable and I’ve never had a bad meal there. The scampi is to die for!! Whenever I’m asked for a nyc restaurant recommendation, I always point people to Ecco. It’s the best hidden gem in NYC.

The occasion was a friend’s birthday. There were four of us altogether. We had the burrata with prosciutto and peppers as an appetizer. For dinner, two of the group had lobster ravioli, one had eggplant Parmesan and the other had veal scallopini à la Pizziola. All of the meals were delicious. For dessert, the servers brought out cheesecake and Napoleon with a candle and sang happy birthday.

It was a totally enjoyable evening. Most of us had been to Ecco before, and this evening was just the type of experience that we expected. Great time!

Every member of the staff was personable, helpful, and polite.

Service was outstanding, food was hot a delicious, wine was perfect. I thought the space was a little cramped, but the food was good enough for me to go back. I wanted to have the stracciatella soup but it was too warm in the restaurant for me to have a hot appetizer. Overall, I would recommend for old school Italian.

Deep in the bowels of Tribecca, this gem of an Italian neighborhood saloon is well worth the venture to downtown Tribecca. Traditional italian cuisine done at its best. Low key but friendly and efficient service together with an old world atmosphere is perfect for our "adult" crowd. We can't wait to go back.
