Excellent low key service and very good mid- and southern-Italian food. We had a group of ten and the restaurant offered us an interesting and well-priced menu with three choices of each course- it made the experience easy and delicious. Good simple wine list.

Staff was fantastic, food was great! As an Italian I’m picky and it’s hard to find good Italian cuisine. They outdid it, their marinara sauce was amazing! I would return again!

Had dinner here - arrived 15 minutes early and were still able to be seated. Host was very hospitable. The staff were very attentive and helpful. The food was great - my husband had the spaghetti and meatballs and I had the fresh pasta with ragu of lamb. I only wish they had put more lamb in my dish but the flavor of the dish was great and the fresh pasta fantastic.

Love this restaurant! Great menu, welcoming staff, outstanding food and service. Had the Pear Salad and Chicken Parmesan—both fresh and perfectly prepared as always. Checks all the boxes—highly recommend.

Recommended by concierge of The Douglas. Great food and value. Small but intimate. I rarely write reviews but wanted to thank the staff for a great evening. Took a great picture with the chef!

Best Eggplant and Chicken Parm we have ever had! Everyone's food was fantastic. Great neighborhood place. Only suggestion would be to order appetizers and then wait to order dinner. Food came out super fast. Will definitely return!!

Great dining experience! Cozy, yet small, so reservations were a must. Close to theaters without being in the bustle. Amazing food and drinks with a very friendly and knowledgeable server.

It's close to Carnegie Hall, which is why we chose it. The food was mediocre. The only thing I could recommend was the calamari appetizer. Everything else (pasta vongole, shrimp scampi, and eggplant parmigiana) was edible, but not much more than that.

This is a charming restaurant. Service was excellent. Ambience was wonderful. My friend and I were able to have a conversation without shouting. Our food was tasty and well-prepared. The pear salad was dressed just right, calamari was light, crispy and fresh. The chicken parm was great as was the seafood capellini dish. We were too full for dessert as the portions were very generous. Will definitely be back.

The food here is superb. It appears to be just a small Italian/pizza place, but the meal I had was equal to that in high price restaurants. I had the pasta with lamb Ragu and cleaned the plate. I also had prosciutto and melon which was excellent. This is not a high class place for power business meals or celebrating special events, but an everyday eatery with far greater than everyday food. The price range is beyond reasonable. The lamb ragu was $22. It was worth at least $35.

This is my new favorite Italian restaurant in this neighborhood! I love how easy it is to make a reservation, and I actually went here two Friday nights in a row. The first time, we didn't have a reservation but were able to walk-in since there were free tables, and the second time, we made a res on OpenTable.

First off, the service is great. They pull out your chairs for you, and when one of our friends didn't arrive for until 30 minutes in, they kept his entree warm in the kitchen so that it'd be fresh for when he did arrive.

The food is also tasty. My favorites are the pear salad and pesto gnocchi. The pear was so sweet and whatever dressing was used was so flavorful, and the gnocchi had a delicious aftertaste. I'd highly recommend coming here for dinner!

First time at Aroma and found it while looking for a pre NY City Center dinner. They have a very diverse menu with many choices we were interested in trying. We settled on mostly specials: a house made burrata with grilled asparagus, prosciutto and balsamic, house made fettuccine with shrimp and trout stuffed with crabmeat. All were excellent. Very helpful and attentive staff and a well stocked bar. We will be back. Highly recommended

Food is ok but nothing special. Wine list is very limited. Prices are quite high for the quality. Convenient to theatres, but there are better options.

This new restaurant was a real midtown must-go! The staff is very friendly and the food is priced right and both times I have been there, the food was delicious!!! Personally, I would love to keep this little Italian restaurant to myself, but I know word of mouth will spread anyway. Definitely give this place a try.

I would recommend this restaurant, however, please LOOK AT YOUR BILL as they DO NOT TELL YOU THEN INCLUDE THE GRATUITY with the bill. We did not know this and tipped them twice! A bit deceptive and NOT the standard practice in New York restaurants for small parties.
