Great live music
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.
Excellent bread and calamari...great Buratta pizza
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!!
For a get together a great place ! Good food and ambience
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.
