Randomly chose this location as my friend wanted Italian and I needed something in close proximity to Grand Central. She was late so I enjoyed an expertly made martini at the bar while waiting for my friend to show. Had a great conversation with the bartender while other guests arrived out of the rain for their reservations. Once seated the service was attentive, warm and informed. The tomato tapanade served with bread is amazing. Calamari was perfectly done and a generous portion. Thoughts of the chicken
with gorgonzola and artichoke heart entree that I ordered linger strongly and I'll soon be going back for more. Highly recommended!

One of the best meals and hands down the best service I’ve ever received. The owner took special care to ensure my 8 year old had a meal he enjoyed and our whole family was thrilled top to bottom. My new favorite NYC restaurant.

Everything was delicious. We would've had the price fixed had we known how much it costs. We should've asked. All in all we had a lovely lunch.

We both did the lunch pre-fixe... the starters and mains were woefully under salted. Service was spotty; I had to ask for water multiple times and the restaurant was not full. The best part of the meal was dessert. The price was good but the food was mediocre at best.

A Friday evening, the place felt relaxed and non-touristy the place was moderately busy around 8.15 and it closed around 11pm..
Great food and helpful on picking a good bottle of wine that was reasonably priced.

Staff were attentive but there was never a feeling of being rushed.

The food is delicious, perhaps a bit pricey. The service is top notch, and they have grappa. They also have my father’s favorite dessert; tartufo.

Pastas are excellent.

The service is very attentive, a great wine list and the food was outstanding. I had the sea bass and he had the Bolognese sauce and shared a Cesare salad. We were too full for desert but the cheesecake looked really good!

The staff was very courteous and the atmosphere was nice and sedate. The food was very good, especially for the price. We ordered an Italian cheesecake and it came partially frozen. He brought out another but it was terrible and we didn’t eat it. It’s really a nice little place, though and we enjoyed our dinner. Strange thing though, I gave the manager my name when I walked in to be seated, he repeated it to me and after an hour of leaving there he marked me as a no show for my reservation! After saying that I indeed dined there they reinstated my points.

Went for a work lunch with one other colleague and will definitely go back. The pasta dish was delicious and not too heavy for a workday lunch. The atmosphere was very nice and the service was excellent.

We just dined at Barolo East for the second time, party of 6. Food was even better this time! we had an order of fried calamari for the table, crisp light and fresh. Starters, tuna carpaccio, chicken livers, burrata in homemade tomato soup was outstanding. Mains, 3 orders of black pasta with swordfish and shrimp, well prepared and seasoned, pasta with clams, pounded veal chop with salad, meat tender and not heavy with breading and veal shank ragu pasta, perfect!
We asked for a white Grillo from Etna, the owner did not have it, but subbed in a similar wine and gave it to us for the price of the Grillo. Nice gesture. Service was excellent. We will continue to dine here when in the area.

Second visit just as enjoyable as first. John, the proprietor, makes sure every guest is greeted, seated, and completely happy with their experience at Barolo East. The ambience of the restaurant immediately sets one at ease, the attentive wait staff makes sure your comfortable and feeling welcome. By the time the food arrives, you’re relaxed and in the perfect frame of mind to enjoy the sumptuously prepared delicacies. This is fast becoming our favorite restaurant in the area. They offer a great Pre-fixe that enables you to try their many tempting selections. I encourage you to come soon because as soon as word gets out, reservations will be hard to come by!

Great neighborhood restaurant! Food, service, and ambiance were excellent. The weather was perfect and we were able to take advantage of the adorable back patio, but inside the restaurant looked very nice as well. We enjoyed the homemade pasta, great cocktails, and the fantastic wine list. Our waiter, Feim, was charming and attentive. We will definitely return!

Great food and even better wine list. Also great service.
Not very roomy - kind of cozy and thus can get loud. Perfect for sampling super-expensive super-tuscan reds....

It is a convenient location and I would imagine the bar is also a nice place to meet and have a drink.

Restaurant exceeded expectations. Owner was very accommodating and made sure our meal was perfect. Food was similar to what you get in Italy, fresh and tasty. We liked the vibe of the place from the moment we walked in the front door. Definitely a repeat on our next visit to NYC.
