    Love this place so much, it’s become one of my favorite spots in the city. I’ve spent many dinners here and never had a bad experience, and the servers are always so kind and attentive. Most importantly the food is friggin AMAZING. I’m usually the type who always gets the same thing on the menu when I’ve found a place I like because I don’t like taking a risk and trying something I end up not liking, but I’m pretty sure I’ve tried something new every time I’ve come here and I’ve loved it all. You just can’t go wrong there.

    Food was incredible! The only complaint was how slow the service was. There was only 1 waiter for roughly 10 tables, so we were never able to order an additional drink or even dessert.

    food wasn’t great, but the servers were nice. definitely don’t go here if you’re looking for the gluten free pasta. the pasta was undercooked and the sauces could’ve used more seasoning.

    Definitely one of the better restaurants in Little Italy. The food was amazing, the music and ambience was exactly what I was looking for, and my waiter Caesar was one of the nicest waiters I've had in my entire dining experience. I Definitely recommend this place if you're in Little Italy

    We went on a day when there was an Italian soccer game going on so the idea of having a quiet dinner went out the window. Constant yelling and cheering. Service was terrible. Food wasn’t worth what you pay for.

    Waited 3 hours to get undercooked food. Also the drinks we got were incorrect and we had to go out of our way to place the drink order/get refills. Worst service I’ve ever had. Food was below average.

    There are so many reasons why we loved our experience at this gorgeous restaurant. First of all was the welcoming staff, from the gracious italian host/manager to the attentive waiter and friendly Busser that kept our water glasses and bread basket full trough the all dinner. The special linguine with lobster was the most delicious we ever had in our entire life! No kidding! The sauce was perfectly reduced and the portion was generous and satisfying! (My husband is a chef and an usually difficult customer when eating at restaurants and he was really impressed by the quality of work that they put on the dish!). We will be back every time we’re in the area and we will recommend to all our friends and family! Bravissimi!!!

    The food was very good, we enjoyed sitting at an outside table watching the activity on Mulberry Street but we had the worst waiter ever… He was very rude . He brought us a wrong cocktail and got angry when we pointed out the mistake. He took 3 out of 4 of our food orders but walked away before taking our fourth friend’s order. When we called him back to take her order , he snapped his fingers and said “Rapido” (in other words - hurry up & tell me your order). Luckily the owner was there and very attentive and when we explained the rudeness of our waiter, he said he is short handed & can’t get anyone else to work right now . We enjoyed our food so we would return as long as we have a different waiter …Hopefully they replace him soon (the table across from us had the same guy & were also treated poorly) We didn’t let it ruin our night since the other employees were very friendly and helpful and we asked them when we needed things knowing that our waiter was obviously having a very bad night.

    We went for a graduation dinner with a voucher from Pulsd, we made the reservation and the owner proceeded to literally curse us out when we mentioned we had it. The server also had the worst attitude. The food was mediocre at best. Will never return.

    the best dinner I ever had. the food it's impressive, awesome staff and beautiful ambience. the bruschetta Pomodoro was crunchy and full of flavor in full Italian style. the pizza oh my god the best in Little Italy. the Gnocchi was incredible, the sauce had so much flavor on it, reminds me my grandma. the staff was fun and very nice, very good service, they will take care of you with the gorgeous homemade focaccia they gave at the start of the dinner. I will definitely come back here ♥♥

    Stunning restaurant! Outstanding dining experience for all of my party. The venue is grand, majestic and lively. The atmosphere is simply impeccable. Huge beautiful plants all over the floor and the patio, yet the candle lit room is super cozy. From the get go we felt the right energy. The music selection is positive and non commercial or cheesy like many of the Italian restaurants in mulberry street. But they really shine when it comes to their attentive service and delicious generous food. We tried an assortment of classic italian antipasti and besides the perfectly cooked mix fried of calamari, shrimp and salmon we had the most delicious meatballs. The chef knows how to perfectly balance the ingredients (meat/bread/garlic/cheese) and their tomato sauce has no rivals in NYC. We also had their NY strip steak (they use only Meats from Pat La Frieda) and a couple of the fresh pasta on the specials of the day; black squid ink linguine and pappardelle with imported porcini mushrooms (I will be there more often just because the porcini mushrooms sauce tasted exactly like the one I had a couple of years ago on my trip to Tuscany). Their desserts selection was also interesting, but we only had a pistachio truffle to share since we were full. We Will be back next week for the sunday brunch, since they also have live entertainment. Our server Joselito was adorable, if I could give him 10 stars I would be very happy. Please go and see with your own eyes, they will give you a unique experience. Belissima Bella Ciao!!

    It is recommended by my friend and I feel it is one of the best Italian restaurant I have ever tried in NY. The Caprese is simple but the cheese is really soft, better than those I bought from supermarket. My friend ordered the pasta and there is a lot of seafood on the top and the taste is delicious as well. During COVID they have established an outdoor space for dining, highly recommend it and will definitely try later for Italian food.

    I thoroughly enjoyed my experience at Bella Ciao! I was there on a night where their downstairs venue, The Producer Table, held a special event with a 5 course meal and live entertainment! Such a treat. The food and service was amazing. I have also been a patron of the upstairs venue for dinner and the food never disappoints. Looking forward to dining here again.

I recommend the fettuccini Alfredo which I ordered, and after tasting everyone else's I found this to be the best! Very delicious would definitely eat at again if I were in NYC!

    I had a perfectly lovely dinner here tonight replete with salad, wine, pasta & dessert for affordable-ish prices for NYC. I'm sure it was full of tourists but it didn't feel touristy. Warm and intimate upstairs dining room & a livelier and larger downstairs dining room. The caprese salad was especially delicious with the freshest mozzarella cheese I've eaten in a while. My veggie ravioli was tasty and light. Decaf affogato for dessert topped off a nice dinner. Great service. Go.
