Outstanding Roman cuisine!
Thank you to the staff and owner for making an exception and allowing us to celebrate a NYC honors bravery medal in our casual clothes.
I wanted to go here for a long time and this was a special occasion. The ambiance was charming,
it was perfect. It was quiet so we could actually talk to each other and hear the response. The wine
list was amazing, but my favorite was not on it and they told me not to worry they had it.
The menu was a problem...we wanted everything! The gnocchi with a truffle cream sauce
must be eaten one by one slowly, it is so amazing. At that point, you think that nothing could
be better but the entree was this incredibly flavored grilled shrimp, crunchy mushrooms and
an arugula salad. We were so satisfied there was no room for dessert.
We can't wait to go again.
Cute, very intimate space so even though there were only 30 people it was noisier than expected. The service was fantastic, my husbands meal was excellent
I first came to Erminia about 25 years ago. I keep it ONLY for when I want to take a person who's exceptionally important to me, so they realize how much they mean to me.
Lovely. Romantic. Great service. Good
Food. Cheesecake was heavenly!!
Consistently delicious and lovely. We went pre-Cafe Carlyle and had such an exceptional meal. Was delightful to return to a neighborhood find and be still charming.
Really enjoyable meal in a cozy, relaxed room. Will go back!
The food was average, but the ambience was wonderful and the service excellent. Prices were reasonable.
The food was very good. Had fresh made pasta special. The room is very small with table close togethr
Authentic Roman Italian food in a small and romantic environment. The food is consistently excellent.
For years Bruno and his staff serve great food and wine in a lovely setting. We visit whenever we can!
A wonderful dining experience. I wanted an affogatto but they didn’t have vanilla ice cream so the owner sent someone to the store to get some so I could have my affogatto. Amazing!
Had a very nice meal here. Started off with the artichoke appetizer which I would highly recommend.
Very attentive service and the food was excellent. It was a much smaller space than we expected but it was a great atmosphere
Excellent service, food, and ambience. A truly pleasurable meal
Very intimate dining experience with only about 12 tables. Everything was delicious and I look forward to returning. Best for a date night or special occasion.
Food was very good. This small, quiet restaurant is great for couples and romantic dates. I liked the pace food was served, but we waited for 30 minutes until our waiter asked us about dessert. By then, we were already tired of waiting and wanted to go home.
Excellent Italian Cuisine in a very charming setting! Not inexpensive but we went for a wedding anniversary and it was worth every penny. Very good service and the owner is a charm.
Great place to go, beautiful!! Great for romantic dates, special occasions and the food was incredible!! The people were super nice, I loved it!!!
Would definitely go back!!
This is one of our favorite go-to spots for special occasions. It's tiny but simply can't be beaten. Excellent food and service. We've never been disappointed on any level.
Bruno and his staff consistently serve great food in an intimate, beautiful setting!!
I absolutely love this restaurant! The food is superb. My husband and I shared 4 appetzers and each was delicous! This is not a place to bring a large crowd. Space is limited but perfect for a couple. The staff was extremely attentive. If you have a chance to enjoy a meal here or just a few appetizers, it's definitely worth it!
Delicious food, beautiful atmosphere and great service!
This is my favorite Italian restaurant anywhere. We have been going here for over 8 years now and love it every single time.
Great in every way food ambience service ...a find on the Upper East Side
What a find! We came in from AZ to celebrate our anniversary. I was told to find a romantic restaurant in NYC. After extensive on- line searches, i came across the site, read the reviews and decided this was the place. It had it all, since it was intimate, romantic and had great food. The ambiance was wonderful and the staff was friendly and fun, but not intrusive. Pepe allowed us to eat our dinner at a leisurely pace and enjoy the terrific food. (We normally eat in the midtown area, so this was a bit different.)
We both had salads; mine with exceptionally fresh mozzarella. My wife's entree was shrimp scampi, which she said was the best ever. I had fork-tender veal with just the right sides to compliment it. We had a problem in choosing dessert (they all sounded wonderful), but did try the tartufo which was a perfect ending for a perfect meal.
We are looking forward to returning.
The food and service are excellent at Erminia's; our second visit this year and we enjoyed it just as much as the first time.
A very sweet, intimate and romantic place, with wonderful authentic food. Great service by very seasoned staff, including the owner. Chef is first rate, price (especially for the upper east side) is very reasonable. Very much recommended for a dinner where you can talk to your companion, take a date, anniversary, or just a wonderful night out.
For years I've written great things about Bruno and his restaurant. I'm happy to say that nothing has changed; still, great food, wine and service in a beautiful setting!!
Just wonderful! Pepe and his staff make you feel that you’re a guest in their home for a fabulous meal.
Great for personal event. Not for businees event. Quaint with nice ambiance. Wonderful food.
The food is really high quality. AND the quantity is certainly enough for people who like to eat. Great atmosphere..very old -school.
Feels like Italy to me!
My husband and I went to Erminias for our wedding anniversary. I was looking for a romantic restaurant with great food and that’s just what we found. The place is small, only 11 tables, with a romantic ambiance. The food was delicious, the service was fabulous and the wine list was perfect. We will definitely be back soon
Always love to come here. We live an hour away and it’s worth the trip.
Wonderful meal as always!
We went for my wife's birthday and had an excellent time! The food was great, the staff was very pleasant, and the atmosphere is very intimate
NOT ROMANTIC BUT RUSHED. I have never been this critical but we sat at 7:00 and dinner was finished at 7:40, I kid you not
Too bad food was outstanding
We were treating our granddaughter to a trip to New York for her high school graduation present. She actually said dinner at Erminia was her favorite thing we did!!
Loved dinner at Erminia and can’t believe I hadn’t been there prior. The decor is very sweet, service excellent and the food was absolutely delicious. It was a bit loud for being such a small intimate setting but it did not detract from the experience. Can’t wait to return.
