Tasty but a little overcooked hamburger. Bustling place. Sometimes gets pretty noisy w overenthusiastic customers.
Everything we had was delicious. I felt like I was back in Italy. Service needs to step their game up, but they were very curtious. This might be my new favorite restaurant in NYC
Love love love
Is Bar Italia overpriced NYC Italian? Maybe...But we had an awesome burrata appetizer that made the meal!
Great Italian restaurant, even with gluten free food.
Warm, hospitable and attentive. Cozy atmosphere with great food.
Delicious food and great service. Suggested wine was perfect.
We love it here. Service was great. Food was good. Lacked a bit of flavor. I love tiramisu but the piece was tiny and just too much money. I think the cocktail was 18 and the dessert 15 and that’s crazy!!!! Will go back but would rethink what we order.
Neighborhood gem! Always great Italian food, buzzing with a chic upper east side clientele.
I love bar Italia
Always excellent. We had not been in a while, but it felt like coming home.
Dennis sent out complimentary appetizers and breads and desserts.
Service impeccable, best pastas in New York, "moscardini" with polenta were delicious.
Came for Restaurant Week. First of all, i couldn’t believe there was no pasta dish on the Restaurant Week menu at an Italian restaurant. We had the salmon tartar as an appetizer. It was essentially a well seasoned mass of salmon chunks. I’ve never had salmon tartar before so maybe that’s how it should be. The waiter allowed me to replace it and i chose the prosciutto. It was literally just a plate of meat. Long story short, we hated it the appetizers. Next i had the Milanese and my husband the swordfish. The Milanese was cooked extremely well but was bland. It was served with an arugula and tomato salad. Excellent if you like arugula. The swordfish was amazing. The best thing was desert. The gelato and tiramisu are fantastic. Overall the ambiance and service were wonderful. I’ve definitely had better Italian food for less though.
We will go back . Hopefully next time they will tell us their special menu of the day/night . We could have not thought about it until I heard the waiter mentioned it to the table next to us. Did not make a big deal out of it but should be treated all the same. Maybe he forgot!!😪
I had a business dinner at Cafe Italia and had been unsure of the choice as I had never been there before but it had received good reviews. I made an excellent choice of restaurants, my business associate and I both enjoyed our meals to the point there was nothing left on either of our plates. The staff was friendly and attentive to us, I have already recommended Cafe Italia to others and look forward to dining there again.
The warmest welcome the best service the best accommodations the best food. Our favorite place ever for lunch always ❤️
We really like this place, they have a little tiny bar, but has very good service. Food is really good. Salmon tartare wonderful, and calcio e pepe,very good too. Wine list is excellent, we like the bread that ic like a cookie.
The food was outstanding. Wines and champagnes too expensive.
Very nice- good service. Prices are a bit high
Love Bar Italia!
We arrived late and wanted something close to our hotel at Park and 61st. It's a short walk to the restaurant; we were seated and served immediately. My bolognese was delicious as we my husband's dishes. My only complaint was the $19 for three small scoops of gelato -- pretty outrageous. Otherwise good experience.
Fantastic evening. Food was outstanding and the service was great. It was the final night of our honeymoon and the staff looked after us and made the occasion memorable - highly recommend this restaurant
Best New Years Eve dinner ever
Great restaurant with excellent food, although my plate was missing some salt. Great service!
Amazing jewel on the UES. Don't pass up this little treasure. The food was sublime and the staff made you feel right at home!
The food and service were both excellent. It was also very easy to carry on a conversation and enjoy the whole table of family.
Awesome from the time we walked in door until we left. Go. Waiters are superb, make great recommendations, and anticipate what you need/want next. Great tequila martinis. Great Arneis. Great calamari, seared tuna, great buratta, great veal ragu. Great everything. Go.
Wonderful spot. The Chef/Owner is amazing. Not just that he is a great chef who makes fantastic dishes, but also a wonderful human being who treats his guest as if they were eating in his home.
5 Stars Plus!!
My wife and I were made to feel very welcome. Friendly and attentive staff who were extremely helpful
Amazing food and service!
Really enjoyed our time and has quickly become our favorite go-to restaurant even though it’s a bit out of our immediate neighborhood. The staff is beyond gracious and the food is absolutely spectacular!
Best food....nice people!! Best restaurant in area.
Chef is italian and food is authentic....rare in many Italian restaurants.
Probably my favorite restaurant in NYC. I try to go whenever I’m in the City. This time I had my kids with me and they were able to find things on the menu they liked- can’t go wrong with Calamari, Pasta Carbonara, or a pizza. My wife and I loved the risotto with shrimp and the pasta special with truffles- that was amazing! This restaurant has never disappointed and can’t wait to return for the great food and service
Completely overpriced Madison Ave rest. $36 for spaghetti with butter? Overpriced wines by the glass and bottle. Only good for people who need to be gluten free since they have $32/38 GF pizza and pasta.
Bar Italia it’s a gem in the neighborhood. Service is really good, all the staff, bartenders, always very good ambiance. Chef Denis, it’s excellent, and you can ask for things that maybe are not in the menu. Try carbonara, calf liver, polenta is very good, swordfish , veal , puntarella
Good and tasty food. Nice setting and atmosphere, but way too expensive.
Best of the best
Well worth the visit
One of our NYC favorites
took awhile for the waiter to come but then, great service.....but the tables for two are MUCH too crowded....but a great neighborhood place....maitre d more interested in his friends at the bar than the other customers. fun ambiance.
Consistently great food and and a fun and festive atmosphere!
