Erminia, opened in 1982, is New York City’s most romantic restaurant. Obtaining some of the Zagat Survey’s most highly rated scores for food, service and décor each year, the Roman influenced Italian food is second to none on the Upper East Side. Forbes Magazine twice selected Erminia as its number one Top Pick for food. Most diners agree that the original concoctions prepared here will win the hearts of all those who come to experience the fare. The Swiss Alps cabin-like atmosphere accents the rustic feel at Erminia.

Great friendly staff with great pasta. House tiramisu could be a little better.

I love Erminia, such a romantic oasis! I have a feeling the chef or menu have changed, but it was still good. We don't live in NYC so do not go often, but always enjoy the atmosphere, nice service and food.

The place is tiny but very pretty. You are greeted nicely, but the staff seems in a hurry to remove plates even though the place was only a quarter filled. Also, there was not enough space between the appetizer and the main dish. I felt rushed. My main dish was delicious and a good-sized portion. The appetizer was quite small. I do not seem why they need to charge $52 for their least expensive wine when the same bottle can be bought for around $15. I would go back if their wine prices were more reasonable.

As good as it gets - excellent food; friendly, attentive and unpretentious service.
Ambiance feels cozy and homey - similar to restaurants I’ve dined in in Italy. After one visit, it’s become one of my favorite restaurants in NY. I look forward to going back.

Erminia has become our favorite place for a date in Manhattan. It's like a little UES secret. Love this joint. If it's not on the menu they just make it anyway.

Love Erminia!! We spent NYE 2018 at Erminia and it was an all-around fantastic experience. The menu was delicious - there were four of us and we had the tuna tartare and scallops to start, then we had the veal ravioli and gnocchi, and for our entrees we had the filet mignon , veal scallopini, and Dover sole - Evertyhing Was Delicious!! Service was super-friendly, attentive and we’ve always loved the cozy, quaint Erminia atmosphere. We went to Erminia for the first in time in 1990 after getting engaged and have been going back for the reliable, consistent and all-around great experience. Thanks Erminia!!
