This couple next to us was so rude! They are their entire meal and when the waiter came they complained about it and wanted new pork chops. The waiter and manager had amazing customer service and did everything right. The couple literally just wanted a free meal. The woman was tipsy off wine, very sassy and very demeaning towards the staff and her boyfriend. Her boyfriend was extremely embarrassed but never said a word. It was so sad and frustrating to witness.

Overall the staff was fantastic and food was good.

Got sat at the smallest table directly next to the bar. People were bumping into us the entire time. Service came to us maybe 3 times in the whole hour and a half. No one refilling waters really. Food was alright.

Bustling place with great service and food. Even though the place was extremely busy you feel very well taken care of by the staff. Food was exceptional and the meatballs will definitely get me back. Only drawback is that the noise level is very high which makes conversation a little bit challenging.

Food all very good to excellent. Unfortunately the restaurant was so loud you couldn't hear yourself think. Dinning kinda tight with too many people crammed into the space. Both myself and wife left with a headaches.

We had a great experience on a Saturday night. The restaurant had a great energy. The bar and table service was excellent. Very professional and attentive. We had a table of 5 and lots of dishes which were all perfect. Pasta, Fish, Salads - all amazing. Constructive criticism is that the table space is tight and the placement of tables is a bit random. This is a must go restaurant!

We’re early diners. The food is almost always above average. From Friday — Sunday the place is super loud with lots of little kids doing what kids do. Not a problem for most, but worth knowing.

Morandi offers warm, comfort, Italian food - but certainly not boring. Great spot to get all the classics - the dishes are full of flavor and the staff are great if you are in for a quick bite or want to linger and finish the wine. Great spot in the neighborhood, always full of energy.

We have been to Morandi several times before and have enjoyed the food and the atmosphere in the past. This time, our entrees were brought before we had finished our starters. No apology, just a pile up of plates. It was difficult to enjoy the rest of the meal.

We had an awesome night. Our server was fantastic, the food and drinks were outstanding, and the place is beautiful. My only complaint is that it is unreasonably loud. They really need to install some sort of sound absorbers.

They took great care of us on our anniversary date night. Wonderful table and excellent staff who made us feel welcome. Tiramisu was very, very good. My halibut was excellent. Husband ordered lobster spaghetti; was a bit disappointed with lobster portion which he was told was enough for two. It was undercooked but the flavors were spot on. This place was recommended by a friend and we would definitely recommend as well.

No order at the hostess stand, unless you stand over their shoulder (reservation or not) you’re not getting seated anywhere near the time they told you. Took 10 minutes to even get menus. 4 bread baskets came before we relieved mediocre apps, the fish was FISHY. Very sick after. Pasta as dry and up flavorful. Overall priced too high for reservation wait time, service, food, etc. the place is too big for what they can handle, maybe If they cut the number of tables in half they would be able to manage.

This is a gem that has been around and we went for lunch. They greeted us in a very friendly way and gave us a window sit looking out on the street activity. Our waiter too was friendly and fun. The food was terrific and the ambiance was lovely. We would definitely go back.

Food was good quality but our service was very bad. The waiter forgot our appetizer order and then when we said we still wanted it he forgot to put it in again. Overall experience wasn’t worth the price.

Morandi is consistently delicious. We were very happy to return after having been there on our previous visit to Manhattan. Everyone should come here when visiting NYC! It’s a great place to go for a leisurely and delicious dinner with family, friends, or on a date. Fantastic!
