Everything was perfect. The only downside was there was NO ONE there on a Friday night at 8:30. This was my second time there and the last time was an awesome vibe. The place was packed, the food was good and this time there were maybe three other tables of people which was just bizarre. Especially since the food and location are good!

Food was very good , so was service. A bit loud for my taste, hard to carry a conversation. Felt a bit uncomfortable when my credit card was requested to hold reservation. Never had to do that before and this is not high end. But overall, good.

Good, plentiful food, well prepared. Very attentive staff, hovering around to assist. Wine prices are somewhat off the wall, otherwise everything else is appropriately priced.

Food was very good and service was good; however, music was a bit too loud - it felt more like I was in a bar than in a restaurant. I wouldn’t go there on a date. Good for a girls night out or to go with friends. I would go back there.

I’m vegan and although they didn’t have much on menu for me they were very accommodating. Wait service was great, constantly refilling coffee and made me a special breakfast of bagel avocado. Companion has great omelette.

We asked for a wines by the glass list. The waiter dropped off the menus and then disappeared for 25 minutes.

Welcoming was pleasant. Service was good. Food was good. It’s not really my type of a Italian restaurant. Price is reasonable. The atmosphere was quiet for a Saturday night.

Going to chalk up a bad experience to New Year's Day and understaffed restaurant. We went for a Gilt City brunch, and were greeted warmly. Restaurant (in Royalton Hotel) is pretty. Mushroom flat bread/pizza was delicious, but restaurant was out of chicken panini sandwich (it was only 1 pm). Burgers and fries were cold and under-cooked when they arrived - sent one back to be warmed up, and it was nearly 1/2 hour before we got it back (so 2nd entree by then was inedibly cold). Fries reheated in the kitchen were still cold. Server was extremely nice, but helpless to a slow kitchen.

Food and service waster both excellent and the place has a great decor. We were very surprised that there were only a handful of other tables dining at 8pm on a Saturday night.

Asellina has so much to commend. There's the convenient close-to-midtown location, the subtle but eye-catching décor, an excellent cocktail and wine list... But above all it's the food that makes one come back again and again. Love the selection of appetizers that are perfect for sharing (the fried stuffed olives are beyond delicious). Main courses ranging from pastas to meat and fish dishes are also excellent. And ordering one of their pizzas for the table is a must-do!

Usually too full for dessert, this time we shared a couple and they were truly a taste treat -- a chocolate mousse cake and layered crepe tiramisu. The manager, Ms, Diaz, is a real pro and knows how to make every guest feel special and valued. And a shout out to our waiters Vernon and Astra who epitomized great service that is pleasant, helpful and attentive. In sum, cannot recommend Asellina more highly for breakfast, lunch or dinner. It's the kind of restaurant that always measures up, whatever the occasion.

We came upon this place last minute, after the restaurant we had booked turned out to be more of a loud bar. It was wonderful! Great menu, great service, delicious cocktails - good for a place if you want to be able to have a conversation. Very glad we found this place!

I love Asellina ! Since my first time there 2 years ago,and the whole ambiance with the DJ animated corner,which gives the option of free your emotions without feeling uptight or limited to dining!
My only confusion was,that in my mind,if you are in the restaurant,(and I know the rooftop is separated) it would give us some preference to go up there??
Just my opinion!
Overall I love it and recommend it!!

If you've got something on the menu on Open Table. Honor it or don't use OpenTable.
Simple right , not so much.
Also the Nero Pizza is normally wonderful, either they ran out of squid ink or changed the recipe or chef from the previous few times I have been there, it was horrendous with far too much cheese.

Very nice. Food was good. Service excellent. Place is pretty. Could use a couple of three more "moderately" priced bottles of wine on the menu.

Liked very much. I'd go back again in a heartbeat

We were dining early at 6pm on a Saturday so it was fairly quiet. Pizzas were good and wait staff friendly

The food and ambience were great, but the best part was the service. Everyone was so friendly, prompt, and appropriately attentive without being overly annoying. I wish every restaurant had service this great - makes the whole experience so much better!

We were at Asellina on a Saturday night. The restaurant was not overly crowded, but not empty either. That level of business made the noise level acceptable. We found the food to be delicious. Two of us had the seafood pasta, which was scrumptious. The other two had the whole fish of the day, which was also a big hit. I would definitely recommend the restaurant to others.

Bad service and extremely bland food. Avoid the bolognese!!!
