We had seven people in our party, all arriving at different times, and Bar Italia dealt with a difficult situation brilliantly. We all ate our main course at the same time. THANKS!
I went with a person in a wheelchair and they were very accommodating and very helpful. Throughout the meal the waiters and the Maitre D were very attentive and present. The food was very good too and value for money is excellent for NYC.
We had a perfectly lovely time having lunch here with our nephew. The food was delicious, the ambience was casually elegant, and the service was warm and friendly. We will be back.
Great service. Great cocktails. Try the tequila martini. The Roman gnocchi special was fantastic, as was chicken special in mustard sauce with rice pilaf. Go for the affogatos for dessert.
I used to love this place The food has taken a turn for the worse
I have been eating at this restaurant for 10 years. I love eating lunch or dinner here. It is decorated in Italian film noir. They even play old black and white movies on a large TV screen in the back of the restaurant. People are dressed all over the spectrum here. Casual, high fashion, and old school sophisticated. Great for any occasion everyday, date, special occasion, business, to just meeting girlfriends.
Nice looking restaurant and lovely maitre d'. Glasses of wine EXPENSIVE, $18-22 each and NOT a
generous pour. Obviously where they make a lot of money and we felt taken advantage of. Food fine, quite good. If you don't drink, you'll probably enjoy an evening there a lot more.
We came for a pre-theater starter and drinks and reserved our table for main course & dessert after the show. We were disappointed that at 11 PM when we returned, the restaurant was already closed! On a Friday night, seemed very early to turn us away
Overall the restaurant was good, but not up to the hype I’ve heard. The food was perfectly good, but nothing extraordinary. Service was spotty, although the owners couldn’t have been nicer in welcoming and thanking us for being there. It was pretty noisy with a big party going on in the back, but not so noisy as to restrict conversation. I thought it was pricey. What I would expect to pay for an extraordinary meal. I doubt I would go back or recommend.
I would rate it : much better than exprected
Love this place. I have since it opened. Best place to have a 5 hour brunch on the weekend!!
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
