What a gem! Great ambiance, food service. Old school style, modern cooking without fads. If I lived in NY, it would be my go-to place for anytime special.

This is a wonderful restaurant. The food was delicious, many options on menu. Good wine list and great cocktails. Beautiful atmosphere and a lovely outside dining area, as well. We will definitely dine here again when traveling to NYC.

Our impression was that they saw us as one-time customers (or maybe they see everyone as one-time customers) from the opening trick question 'would you prefer still or sparkling' (later on you find out the wrong answer has cost you $9/bottle). The correct answer of course is 'tap please', as there are a number of waiters walking around with water pitchers. The food was disappointing, esp for a restaurant that sees itself as higher class. I had the spaghetti with clams. Yes my 6-8 quarter inch tiny shells were technically clams and they sat on a dry sauce-less pasta. Not good. Ah, and the wine list was well over 3x (closer to 4x). Walk before trying to run would be my advice to this restaurant, ie get the basics better.

A welcome new addition to midtown.Food was outstanding, ahi tuna appetizer was very fresh and homemade pasta was delicious and well presented. The wine recommendation by our waiter was on point. The place is very beautiful ,cozy and the outdoor seating is tranquil and isolated from the traffic noise being that it is in the back of the restaurant...overall very enjoyable experience and we will return for sure.

Should have been a give away when I could get an 8 pm reservation at the last minute. Food was very average. Service was very good. Pour a pretty good drink. Wouldn’t go back. Certainly not a 4.5 rating closer to 4.1.

Food and service was good but not exceptional. Good spot for a friendly get together, meeting a colleague for dinner etc. Has a small bar area, wines are decent .
I will return for lunch/dinner, a good east side spot to meet up with family & friends.

The restaurant is lovely, we were greeted and seated right away. The wine list was very reasonable, and had enough familiar names that I could easily chose a nice one. It was hard to hear our waiter recite the specials, because the noise level was very “energetic”, but we could certainly hear our own conversation. The food was marvelous!

Our son lives in NYC, so, my wife and I meet him in the city from time to time for lunch, dinner and sometimes a show. This time, after the show, we had dinner at Barolo and it was perfect in every way. The restaurant was charming and immaculate. The service was best in class. And, the food was excellent. All around a great experience and a place to return to!

The tuna tartare appetizer was tasteless. The first vine we ordered had turned( it tasted like vinegar). But, the bad wine was replaced for the same price, with a better wine. Intially, the wine Stewart tried to sell us a wine far above the price point we mentioned.
It was very noisy. Our waiter Gustavo, was amazing. Overall, I can’t recommend the restaurant, and would not return.

What a pleasant surprise to find this fine dining establishment so close to our hotel. We we starting our 30th anniversary trip and celebrating with some friends and picked Barolo East based on some of the reviews we had read recently. We were not disappointed. The food and service was outstanding. Special recognition should go to the maitre d' who went out of his way to ensure everything was served to perfection.

Incredible - an extremely pleasant surprise. The food was top-notch, from the octopus appetizer, the salads, the chicken martini, and best of all, the pasta special with truffles. Very reasonable prices, relaxed atmosphere, and the service was the best I've experienced at any venue in years - competent and attentive, but not intrusive. This is my new go-to for Italian in midtown.
