Osteria del Principe - Permanently Closed Ratings and Reviews
The restaurant is cozy and well adorned, the waiter was patient and knowledgeable about the food which was delicious and authentic. A little pricey but the quality of the ham was very high, and difficult to find at the same level/price in New York. Real Italians owners and staff, it seems they will also host cocktails and aperitivo very soon. Recommend but remember to mind the step at the door!
This is as authentic Italian cuisine as you can get, with the freshest mozzarella in the City! I loved the ambiance for our small family of five. The staff was so friendly and hospitable that we didn't want to leave. Honestly, all the entrees were fresh and expertly prepared/plated, and each person in our party raved that it was the best tasting dish we had ever enjoyed. I highly recommend their homemade spinach ravioli!
We love this restaurant! and have been going for years. The owners, Carlotta & Max, are wonderful hosts and the service staff are outstanding. Food is delicious -- from appetizers to desserts, we always enjoy our meals. Good selection of wines too! .. and the prosciutto and
buratta are just sensational - thank you as always!
My wife and I had four dishes between us at our first visit to Osteria del Principe, and they ran a gamut from good to barely edible (unpleasantly salty gnocchi). Can't understand why anyone would go to this restaurant when other Italian ristorantes within a couple of blocks are significantly better (e.g. Novita, Maialino, I Trulli).
We scheduled our trip to New York for our 30th Anniversary and decided on Osteria Del Principe as our celebration dinner. After living 8 years in Italy and 5 in Germany over the past 30 we wanted an authentic Italian meal for our night. Are expectations were met and we enjoyed everything on the menu we had and wished we were not to full to order more. I recommend this restaurant for anyone staying in the Flatiron district and anyone looking for a great Italian meal. We will visit again on our next trip to New York.
The food was divine. If you have been to Italy and have appreciated the flavors of simple, artisanal foods, you will appreciate the elegance of the dishes at Osteria.
The service was wonderful. Only thing I would change about the place was bring the lighting down and put on some more sophisticated music to match the food and decor.
This is an undiscovered gem!
The atmosphere and the food are wonderful. I've been here before and it was consistently good. The service is excellent. Only problem was the live music in the bar. It was hard to hear my companion because the sound was carrying back to the restaurant. I prefer soft background music, not loud rock, when I'm dining.
Prosciutto with Burrata starter was good and our table also had the dried beef which was good. Artichoke salad was also good. The lamb pappardelle which I had read good things about was average at best. Main issue, the lamb. It was cubed and tough. Definitely had not been braised enough. Further, the service was not attentive and I think they knew it since they automatically added the gratuity to the check and we were only a party of 5. Maybe it's their policy to add the tip automatically but I am used to 6 or more.
Given the location, finding a reasonably priced unpretentious restaurant was what we were after. We got that, but the food didn't hold up. Food was less than remarkable, medium steak was served rare to medium rare, fried polenta had an odd almost watery texture and no taste. Service was attentive. But the downer was that we left smelling like the fryer or a grill. That was enough to make us uninterested in returning.
We went on a Saturday for dinner. We had the prosciutto & buratta plate as well as the "ricotta with toasted bread and pesto" plate as our appetizers. The prosciutto & buratta plate was great. The ricotta itself was delicious but we got the two of the smallest imaginable sizes of crostini bread pieces with near invisible amount of pesto spread on them. It was a strange presentation. For the amount of ricotta on the plate there should have been at least 4 more small pieces of crostini. My husband ordered the lasagna bolognese which was quite good. The meat was seasoned properly, the pasta to filling proportion was good. I ordered the pappardelle with lamb ragu. Whoever prepared that dish does not know how to properly cook and prepare pasta. The pasta was one big clump stuck together. There was hardly any seasoning, any sauce in the dish. There were small bits of lamb that were placed on top of the pasta clump like a decoration. Everything else that we had there was satisfactory in taste; but that pappardelle dish was embarrassing. I think their charcuterie meats and cheeses are very good. I think I would go there more so for those plates as opposed to the main entrees.
We came here using a GiltCity certificate for 4. All the appetizers to share were beautifully presented and delicious. House wine by the bottle was perfectly good. We had one pasta dish, lamb rage, that was excellent. The salmon the rest of us had was just slightly overcooked at medium, hence the four stars rather than five. Service was friendly and attentive without being overbearing. We were in the back of the dining room and were able to enjoy a conversation although the front of the house was noisy. Bar scene was hopping, rather upscale crowd. Nice place to dine, especially if you love prosciutto and other homemade Italian foods.
I have passed this restaurant many times and finally decided to give it a try. I am so glad I did. It was so beautiful inside. Our wait staff was attentive, friendly and extremely professional. The food was excellent and the prices were quite reasonable. I have already recommended this restaurant to friends and hope to get back there myself again soon.
We found this on Yelp. The reviews were mostly very good so we gave it a try. We're very happy we did. Everyone was very friendly and helpful with the menu and wine list. We really like proscuitto and burrata and this one was excellent with great fresh bread. We shared two pasta dishes that were both also excellent.
Prices are reasonable and the quality of the food and service is quite high. Highly recommended!
