I read about Barolo East online, and it sounded so wonderful! So three of us went for dinner on 2/15/21 and I asked for Gustavo because so many people mentioned him by name as a great server. The Maitre D, Benny, brought us to a nice table and brought Gustavo over to meet us! The service was lovely, the food and wine were delicious, there were COVID separations between the tables, the bread with the tomato & oil were yummy together, the white tablecloth is always a touch of class, and Gustavo brought us complimentary Limoncello at the end of our meal! Since I was having medical appointments/surgery the next few days, this was the best celebration to enjoy beforehand! Thank you for your warm welcome and caring attentiveness!

Great food and service as always. Though seating was a little tight on Saturday night which was probably a function of the warmer weather.

The backyard semi-enclosed garden is lovely, BUT the music was louder than necessary.
I requested it be lowered, and it was!
The food is EXCELLENT and a wonderful dining treat.

Our family of 5 enjoyed every part of our dinner at Barolo. The garden was warm but still had good ventilation and plastic partitions between tables. Food was amazing and the service was excellent. Can't wait to go back.

not the best Italian food in New York City, but what really upset me at the restaurant was the service: the server, who did not know almost anything about Italian food was so arrogant for no reason...I asked a few questions and his answers were:" that is just the way it is" ..really? he should have just said, "I don't know the answer, let me find out for you". During the meal, we got a bottle of Barolo wine and at that point, I guess he decided he liked us ( classic server who thinks with his wallet..big check nice service, small check ...who cares). At the end, I told him I wanted to think about maybe having a whiskey...he told me I had to decide right away cuz the restaurant was closing at 10 o clock because of the new Covid regulations, but it was only 9.25 pm, I told him I knew the rules and there was plenty of time...he asked where I lived!!! I said I live here in the city on the upper east side...I guess he just wanted to find out whether I was just a tourist ( so he could add a tip on my check ) or a local...I cannot stand these servers: they don't care about good service and great customer experience which is the reason why I usually go to a restaurant. I ended up asking for the check because I really wanted to get out of there at that point since the server ( a young Albanian dude) upset me so much during my dinner: I still tipped 18% ( I usually tip 25 to 30% when service is good) out of respect of the busboy and runner who clearly share tips with this moron. Hope this review helps you decide where to dine Italian cuisine in NYC.

The food is excellent, the waiters seemed rushed and a bit confused, but we are certainly going back. The "outside" garden is pretty enclosed, actually, and every table was taken. Inside the restaurant, only two tables were occupied. Might be safer inside. Next time.

Barolo East is a very nice place for a good quality, comfortable meal out on the town. We ate on the back terrace in 60 degree weather under heat lamps. The place was well set up to minimize covid risk while maintaining as much of the room's openness and character. The food was very good, although I personally thought a bit more seasoning. Service was very good. Recommend for any time you want to try something new at a reasonable price point and not be too overly fussy about every detail.

Everything was really good. Service, staff, food. The courtyard is really nice but it is a pity, it is Covid times and the separators made it look like a greenhouse. Plus the space was a bit cramped.
