Bruno, who owned and ran Pesce and Pasta until it closed, is now at Grata. It was great seeing him and he brought some of my favorite dishes with him. Very happy that he is back in the neighborhood.

Thus us truly a neighborhood place w/o too many tourists, which my husband and I like. The food was good, service very accommodating, and vibe very homey. Our two appetizers were very good. The 1/2 plate if pasta I got was more than ample for my entree. My husband's ribeye steak was large but cooked more than he ordered. When we arrived most of the dining room was populated with a group waiting to surprise someone for their 40th birthday. We thought it was fun to be part of that. Would definitely come back again.

Wanted to give it 5 stars overall but had to hold back due to the food being overly salty. We ordered the meatballs, ravioli and salmon avocado and all three dishes were so salty that we ended up consuming more water and sadly had to stop ordering more. The service was outstanding... if only the food met the standards...

My wife and I had a lovely evening there over the weekend. The weather was fine, the front windows were open and a impressive jazz quartet was playing. The food was quite good and the service was attentive without being overbearing. I had a very nice veal chop and my wife had the salmon special. Both were quite good. I ordered a Chianti and though they were out of the particular vintage I chose, they were able to find a more than adequate substitute at the same price point. Altogether a lovely, romantic evening in a cozy place. Our waiter informed us that the restaurant would be converting to a steakhouse soon, though, so only time will tell if the ownership can retain the charm of the existing place as they transition to a new cuisine.

It was July 4th weekend, a good friend gave me a $200 gift certificate the he bought from this place.
Reservation was not an issue. We arrived to the restaurant at 7:30 to an empty restaurant. There was a single table beside us. My wife ordered 1 cocktail ( she said it was the only thing was worth $)and the rest of us ordered water.
Ordered appetizers. Calamari was cooked in burnt oil and served with tomato sauce witch you need a knife to cut through .
Salmo was the worst thing I have ever tasted. Served with kale and potato $28. Seafood special( the biggest ripoff in the history of restaurant, We orders 2 veal chop special( they came breaded and fried at $42 ea.
my 15 years old daughter missed the olive garden food. At $266.00 I

The food was awful. Two veal meals were sent back, and two pasta dishes arrived which were no better.
Restaurant did not deal well with the issue just apologized and offered drinks

I took a coworker here for her birthday for lunch. The only other patrons were two table of ladies playing cards. It's a little expensive for lunch and the portions are fairly small but I enjoyed by food and the a/c! I might be back for happy hour.

Great neighborhood spot, off the beaten path in Midtown. Very good for business discussions, as typically quiet at lunch time. Atmosphere very comfortable.
Service very friendly and attentive. Pasta dishes were very good. Nice food selections.

Can't thank Dora and her staff for another great time out. The food and wine were perfect and the next time we are back to New York we we certainly go again. Maybe twice like we did this past week.

15 adults and 2 children under 10 and we ALL enJOYed the ambience/ service and most importantly the food - I can highly recommend the meatballs as an appetizer staple - the fresh/warm focaccia bread is always a nice touch - from pasta to beet salad and roasted artichokes - duck medallions, steak and mussels in white wine the variety and taste-buds of everyone were truly satisfied - the coconut passion fruit desert was to live to

Manager came over and talked to us which she didn't have to. Made the night a little more special. Food was very good and we are going back again later in the week. Price was very reasonable. Good location.
