Such a great and cozy vibe to catch up with friends. Portions were small but would still go again.

It was so nice to return and eat indoors. The staff was very friendly, all safety protocols were in place, we felt very comfortable, and look forward to returning in the future.

My freshly made pasta, mmmm. Perfecto! The Tagliatelle was cooked perfectly and the bolognese sauce was sooooo good.

the food was very delicious, the person who took care of us was great and nice but the hostess wasn't as nice. She offered us one table which was in the middle of traffic when she could have suggested options. Thankfully, a table freed up and we moved with the blessing of a different host. But overall the restaurant is great!

The outdoor dining setup here was amazing: Heat lamp overhead and an additional one on the floor beside our table. Staff was also amazing. However, the brunch left something to be desired. Food was just okay; honestly, the quality that I could make at home. I've been to other Keith McNally restaurants and hoped it would be just as good but it sadly was not. I'd maybe try this for dinner instead of brunch.

Morandi exceeded my expectations! The service was incredible and every dish was better than the last...not to mention that I felt extremely safe dining there in the current circumstances. I'll be going back very soon.

We visited Morandi on a Thursday evening and sat outside in the chilly New York weather. The heaters could have been a liiittle warmer but we were okay! They sanitized our table twice before placing down any silverware/plates and the staff was incredibly nice. We ordered the bruschetta to split as an appetizer and each had a pasta dish for dinner. Amazing! Their drinks were delicious as well. Highly recommend!

We had a reservation and had to wait almost 40 minutes past our reservation time to get our table. It was freezing outside in the waiting area with no heaters. They did give us one glass of free champagne, but I more wish we had been taken to our seat promptly.

The food was not good.

One of the hosts was apparently best friends with the table right next to us, so when we did sit down, we had to spend a good half hour to 45 minutes listening to them LOUDLY talk about some sandwich business he was opening. It was so loud my tablemate and I had to stop talking because we could not hear each other.

Finally our reservation was over and the restaurant was nearly empty. There was no one waiting. We asked for one more glass of champagne... and were told no because there were dinner reservations. My friend used the restroom and about five minutes later, there was still no one waiting for a table and the place was even more empty, so we asked again. They finally saw how ridiculous they were being and served us another glass. It was quite strange and they were definitely playing games, which certainly do not benefit them during a pandemic.

With so many other good restaurants in the area, this is one to avoid.

The cacio e Pepe was so yummy and so was the insalata verde. Both paired well with the Chianti! Such a cute place and great service

Amazing! Hadn’t been in a year and the food was even better than I remembered. Had the salmon with broccoli rabe and potatoes for side dishes. Soooo good! Service was exceptional. The manager made sure we were comfortable and warm. My macchiato was made perfectly. Will be going back soon!

This has become my “go to” spot for dining. Consistently good food, excellent friendly service and they make a mean Negroni. What’s not to like.
Even the outdoor dining is done right. I haven’t had a bad meal yet!!

Wonderful food but service was bad - didn’t have a table reserved when I arrived and did not feel tables were properly socially distanced. Would have gone somewhere else if it wasn’t Christmas Day & could have walked up to a new restaurant.

Nothing special. The fried calamari was a huge disappointment and my husband’s steak was more gristle than meat. The cacio e pepe was really good, though.
