 (New York Area)·Dined 3 days ago

be careful with the wine menu. we asked for a bottle and were instead given 4 glasses of wine (even though we did insist on the bottle). at the end the check was super expensive because the prices they have are for Carafe and not for a bottle. what I don't understand is that plenty of other tables around us had bottles so why couldn't we just buy one? I think they just tried to rip us off. + the waiter spilled water all over us. so no I'd not particularly recommend this place. there are so many nice Italian restaurants in NYC and more authentic ones.

The food was solid (although the burrata was not as good as I'd hoped). The big problem is that the place is way too cramped and very loud. We were basically sitting on top of people to our left and right. The restaurant tried to cram too many tables into the space and made for a poor experience. If they removed maybe ~10% of their tables, the spacing would be better and the volume of the place would be more manageable.

Morandi is really cute inside. The place does get crowded and the tables are close together. The service was very good. I really enjoyed the meatballs as an appetizer and I got the cacio e pepe which was very good. I would definitely come back here and recommend it.

We've eaten at Morandi 5 times and the food has been wonderful each time. We're not experts on Tuscany, but we've been there several times and to us Morandi seems as close to Tuscan as we find around New York. This time all our three grown children joined us and every thing about this meal was just superb - the food, ambiance, and especially the kindness and attention of our server, Alessandro. We intend to eat at Morandi many more times. Thank you.

We had Christmas Eve's Feast of the Seven Fishes which was amazing. A great variety of dishes for a reasonable price on a special night. The place was lively and the service was impeccable. Wine can be ordered by the bottle or the carafe. Overall a great experience I would recommend.

Waiter was wonderful but we waited much too long for our entree after our appetizer and pasta,
but it was a holiday.
Would go to restaurant again but not on a holiday, it was too noisy and crowded

Very interesting menu

Food was very average, no atmosphere for Christmas Eve and we were rushed out to the point that they turned the lights off - this was at 4.30pm! They charged me full price for a Kids bowl of pasta too. Ridiculous. Service was poor too, considering there was probably ten people in total in the restaurant.

We went here two years ago and had a pretty good meal. This time we shared two starters, the burrata (good, but nothing amazing with only a few cherry tomatoes added) and the shaved brussel sprouts (disappointing) between three people, we then ordered the lamb which came with potatoes (the lamb was fattier than normal and the sliced potatoes were hard and undercooked) and pesto gluten free pasta (just ok, but pretty dry).
The people we were with ordered fries (the only really good thing) and the other ordered the pasta with prosciutto which came out more like lumps of sausage meat!? He returned that and didn't eat it, so the manager came over and offered a free glass of wine to make up for it which was good.
The portions were small, the waitress knew nothing about the menu (maybe she was new!?) and was supposed to check if any of the fish was wild for us before we ordered, she left for 15 minutes and came back to take our order where we found out she'd forgotten to ask if the fish was wild, so she had to leave again. She also didn't know what the gluten free pasta was made from. She was nice enough, but very ineffective and poorly trained coming to our table and grabbing our signed bill before we'd had time to even put our coats on (a little niggle for me, but manners-wise leave it there until the people have left when they're making moves to leave).
We were actually still hungry due to the small portion sizes and leaving my partner to eat most of the meal we ordered, so I ordered an additional fries which never came, so I didn't bother to request them again.
The meal (without the alcohol) came to $170 which was terrible value considering the quality and quantity of the food).
The only upside was that there is a lovely atmosphere in this restaurant at Christmas, but coming two years ago and eating lunch there was like a night and day experience to dinner this year and we definitely won't go back.

We had the Italian Christmas feast here last year and it was great.
This year the food was so so and the service sporadic.
When I complained that my root vegetables were undercooked the response was "they are supposed to be".

It’s decent. The host was probably the most enjoyable part of the experience . Very funny and nice guy. Wish I could remember his name; tall handsome guy, Joshua maybe?

Everything else was good, nothing amazing. Reasonably priced and nice atmosphere. So many choices in the City I’m not sure I would go a second time, though I’m happy I tried it.

Morandi you did it again!! Absolutely every aspect of the evening was nothing short of perfect!! The food is over the top delicious, the servers couldn't be any nicer or more accommodating, and I must give an extra special shout out to the bartenders, Joe and Alessandro. We arrived a bit early for our 7:30 reservation so decided to have a drink at the bar...well that "drink" at the bar turned into complimentary focaccia...the BEST focaccia I've ever had in my life....followed by heavenly Italian pastries....what a treat!! Thank you again Joe and Alessandro and the entire Morandi staff for such a great dining experience!!
