Great atmosphere, very good food and friendly service.
The server didn’t say a single word to us. Not one.
I had to ask for a cocktail.
I had to ask for a new carafe of water since the one on the table was left over from the previous guest.
I had to ask for glasses.
I had to ask for silverware.
I had to ask for napkins.
It was absolutely the worst service.
Food was good, service was good. Bathroom did not have soap, the dispenser was completely dry, so staff did not have clean hands after using bathroom???? When I asked the Manager about soap so I could wash my hands she got angry at ME and insisted there was soap? I waited outside the bathroom for several minutes while she filled the soap dispenser. This was after dinner, I didn't want to think I had just eaten in a restaurant where the staff could not wash with soap. Check the soap dispenser before eating!
Lovely gnocchi, pasta and dessert! But we were asked to leave our table to make room for later guests.....
We had eaten here two years ago and enjoyed our meal so much that we made a special trip downtown to visit when back in the city. It was just as wonderful as we remembered.
The last time we were here it was warm and we enjoyed the outdoor garden-like setting. This time it was much cooler but the dining room was just as enjoyable — beautifully decorated and festive in appearance.
We had the burrata with truffles and speck, salad with figs, ricotta salada and prosciutto, and the spaghetti carbonara. Everything was prepared beautifully with the best ingredients. Our waiter was helpful in matching wines to the courses, and we topped the meal off with chamomile grappa and a Nutella calzone.
It was all just as good as I remembered!
Had the bolognese and carbonara pasta. They were delicious, really enjoyed the food.
The best pizzeria in Manhattan. Very good price and best quality
Unfortunately we did not have a good experience at the restaurant. Our food came out cold and wasn't anything spectacular, the service was poor and unfriendly. I did love the ambiance of the place. The manager was nice to try the situation around but unfortunately we won't be coming back.
I made a reservation for brunch and was very disappointed with the quality of the food. I ordered the oven-baked egg dish with sausage. When the dish arrived, the egg was cooked at such a high temperature that it looked like plastic and the yolk was extremely hard. The serving size was extremely small! Not that I would have eaten more of the dish, but it was disappointing given the high price. I will never go back. Very disappointing.
This was a wonderful dining experience. We came here for a birthday party with six people and were seated immediately (even a tiny bit early). The servers were attentive and efficient and very friendly. There is a very good wine list as well as some really delicious specialty cocktails. We had two different antipasto platters and they were equally delicious. Our dinners were exceptional and portions are generous but not overly so. The birthday boy received a complimentary dessert with a candle. The desserts were also beautifully prepared. In warmer weather there is a decent sized outdoor eating area in a great location. This is a restaurant I would return to for lunch or dinner.
I came there for my birthday. The service was horrible, I had to flag down a waiter for everything, to the point where no waiter had come up to our table without me flagging one. I have no clue who our actual waiter was. The food wasn't bad, but nothing insanely special. They weren't super accommodating for where they would seat us, and it seemed like they wanted us in and out as fast as possible. Ultimately I'm not sure I would go back again.
Awesome. Great carbonara - even better than at Crispo’s which is saying a lot.
Great food and ambiance, make sure you get a table outside
Managed to get a late table. Super busy place and one to go for the atmosphere. Carpaccio was good but pasta had been left on the pass too long and was a bit congealed.
The service continues to get worse here- which is a shame because it is such a lovely place. The waiters, of which there were plenty, never come by/ and there were only 4 tables with people at 11:30 on a Sunday. Once it started to get busy/ it got worse. Rarely saw our waiter/ asked random people for water, the check, etc.
The attention of the staff is very good, the best, they were kind and polite.
Great food, great experience. Tables very close together so be prepared. Get the veal meatballs! Incredible! Vongole was outstanding as was the tiramisu. Will go back again.
Food was very good but service needs to improve. Long waits between courses.
Great location and lively atmosphere. The cocktail selection was great as well as an extensive wine list.
Delicious food. Service was a little spotty. Like most NYC restaurants space is at a premium so you are seated very close to your neighbors.
Was brought here by yelp but the food was bland. Ordered three entrees to share at the table and all three were bland. I would probably not come back.
Great Italian food and service
We chose to eat here based on recommendation from family members. Not disappointed. Nice setting with a lot of attention paid to decor and furnishings. Bright and airy which helps to create a very pleasant environment overall. My wife and I shared a salad and focaccia bread for starters , followed by excellent pasta dishes. Carbonara and mushroom ravioli were both superb in fact, washed down with a very good bottle of Italian red. Service complemented the whole experience.
We had a good experience having lunch at Olio e Piu, but I would not come back so soon. The polpetine we ordered got to the table cold, not hot enough. The pizza was also not hot either. The service is kind of relapsing too. Despite the fact the food came cold, they tasted good.
Servi d is great!
Certainly will return
Found this place on Trip Advisor and could not reccommend enough! Booked a table of 2 for me and my partner but we ended up being a 3 as a friend i havent seen for a long time came to join us, unfortunately we couldnt adjust our table as was soo busy but we were able to sit at the ‘chefs table’ a high top bar looking into the kitchen which we loved! Able to watch the chefs cooking away and seeing and smelling all the fresh food being made! My partner had the carbonara & i had the pesto gnocci it was beautifully made and wish i was back in New York to go again!
Went for brunch - they serve their dinner and brunch menu and it’s amazing! :)
Nostrana pizza delicious. Cacio e pepe really good. Carbonara & brussel sprouts ok. Pana cota delicious.
The restaurant is so cute - inside and out. It's small and cozy. The service was amazing. The food and drinks were great...everything was wonderful!
Good food paired with a decent selection of wine. A bit noisy for quiet conversations, and the tables were very close together. Loved the interior decorations and vibe.
Arugula salad watery tasteless. Pasta taste good. Seat uncomfortable. Servers pleasant though when asked if I wanted 3rd glass of wine I replied 'I'm good' - he nodded and then came over, smiled and poured another and nodded. I thought it was on the house. I drank it thinking there was redemption for the shortcomings- - I was billed, paid and won't return. I thought it was a nice treat on a snow day!!!
Restsurant did not honor my reservation.
I called to say I’d be about ten minutes late and when I arrived, they had given my table away anyway. I was told I’d have to wait an hour. Will never go back.
I really enjoyed their antipasto misto! But its linguine alle vongole is definitely not fresh neither flavorful. However, aside from the food, my friend and I were really annoyed that they had a photographer FLASHING her camera while people were trying to dine! So inconsiderate of customers! We eventually asked to move seats but the flash still disturbed us. I was super excited to try out Olio e Piu after reading all its great reviews, but I probably won’t go back.
When I’m craving for seafood and pasta Olio e Piu is my place....Linguine Nere allá Sarda is a great dish and for end my amazing diner I got Nutella Calzone. You’ve have to try this dessert, but I recommend you share with your friends. Andrea was very attentive, great service and always on top in his job.
See you next tine !!!
My favorite go to Italian spot. Such a great place. Love the menu and decor
After dining at Olio E Piu my standards for service have definitely gone up. My waitress Shannon raised the bar. She guided us through our dinner seamlessly. She was polite, and professional, had a great knowledge of food and drink, but was also able to let loose a bit and make jokes with us. She was excellent.
The food that Shannon recommend us was perfect. No complaints at all. Tons of flavor and good portion sizes.
The decor is very nice and comfortable feeling, although when it gets busy you feel a bit packed in (as expected anywhere in the village).
I really love this place and I will be back very soon, for the food, service and overall appeal this place has. And of course I will be requesting Shannon as my waitress!
It would have been a great experience if it weren’t for our waitress who was completely rude.
We had just come from a comedy show and had some bottles of sparking water on the table (to meet their two drink minimum), and she condescendingly told me she couldn’t pour that and looked at me in a very rude way.
I then asked the waitress before dinner to make sure she put a candle in the desert and clearly pointed out where the birthday girl was sitting. Birthday girl ordered desert and the waitress forgot the candle. I told her she forgot the candle, so she went back and set it down in front of her with no apology.
On top of that, the food was not memorable. Had the caprese salad with a gigantic portion of dry chicken on the side, and two pizzas, one of which was not pre cut.
