Grilled octopus was fabulous!
Cozy place with great food and wonderful service. Looking forward to my next visit.
The woman at the door and first bar was very nice and friendly but my waiter clearly catered to the regulars and I found myself asking others for items. I had the ragu and the sauce was hidden below the pasta. I pay for the ragu sauce and I want to see that prominently all over the top of my pasta...I do not want to search for it...not much was given either. I ended up ordering additional meatballs to make certain I got enough protein to offset the carbs. The staff needs to be friendlier.
The food was great, the service was even better. Bravo
plates a little too small, thank god we had some appetizers...........
Great dinner before Billy Joel at MSG with my Uptown Girl!!
Concert at MSG it was very convenient and service was fast.
We tried this old world neighborhood gem for the first time last weekend. It’s a casual, small intimate space and very quiet. The menu is limited but they have daily specials. I had rack of lamb, one of the specials, my husband had salmon, which was the fish of the day. Both were excellent simple preparations and delicious! We will definitely be back to try some of the Italian specialties. Reservations are recommended.
We reserved our table for a lovely Valentines Day dinner while we were visiting NYC. The restaurant is lovely and cozy, filled with ambience. We enjoyed the mozzarella appetizer, lobster fettuccini, sausage rigatoni and fresh baked bread (so good!). We paired our meal with the half-bottle of Montepuliano which was perfect with the meal. Staff was expecting us and was very attentive throughout the meal. If you love authentic and cozy Italian? This little gem is absolutely worth the visit!
Been going here for three decades
Very authentic northern Italian meal. Made to order, many pasta dishes are home made. The manicotti & chicken milianase was uniquely delicious. Treat yourself & make a Rezo.
Food was great.....service was excellent. Thank you!
Great food and excellent service. But very loud when it was crowded.
I met my sister in NYC. She was there on business and I am from Long Island and was going to the New York Ranger game that night. I picked this restaurant based on proximity to Madison Square Garden – it’s literally around the corner, I also picked it based on the reviews. We shared a beet salad that was delicious. She had chicken Marsala that came with three cutlets! I had octopus which was delicious and perfectly grilled. Then we shared a piece of cheesecake that was to die for. I would definitely go to this restaurant again!
No wait, however, the table are close together
The manicotti was fantastic and the sausage board was very tasty.
As usual, we had a very nice meal. The pasta is cooked perfectly and the homemade sausages are outstanding.
Food was good the staff was a 10th of the tables kind of small. We were seeing a concert after word and the staff did everything to make sure that we made it in easily
Lovely place, lovely waitress. Prices for food were okay but the wine prices were very high!
The food was spot on. I will be back (again).
This is one of those neighborhood gems with an Italian family that only cooks with the freshest of products, in simple straightforward genuine Italian food. Coupled with very friendly accommodating staff it was a great experience.
Jackie our server was outstanding. We sat at the bar and she explained the entire menu while we were waiting for the rest of our party. When we moved to our table she again provided great service. The food was top notch
The specials are always delicious. I had the ravioli, which was made fresh and the sauce was perfect. They have a full bar and decent wine selection.
Great place before ranger games good food good service good drinks.
Excellent option if you need to catch at train out of Penn. Very nice ambiance, food and staff.
Love the sausages and Octopus, and everything else on the menu.
Eat here all the time before Ranger games and love very meal and every bite.
Strongly and highly recommend. Just make sure to make a reservation on game nights.
Great place, great location, great food, great service, great everything.
Very cool spot by Madison Square Garden. Has solid prices and solid food. Service was quite good.
Amazing food, atmosphere, treated my kids great! Great service and wine recommendation. Overall amazing experience! Will visit again and have already recommended to a friend who will be traveling there soon.
Very happy Texans! Thank you!
Cozy restaurant with good food waking distance from MSG. Quaint brick walls and a nice bar if you want to hang out before dinner. The chef easily accommodated my wife's special diet. Katarina and the rest of the waitstaff were all very good.
The food was excellent! Our table was too close to the ones next to us. Other than that...perfect!
Highly recommend! Wonderful food, drinks, service and ambiance. Will definitely return.
Nice neighborhood restaurant. Delicious sausage and good pasta. Quick service. Noise level is way too high
Great restaurant in a neighborhood devoid of decent ones. Nice earthen atmosphere with exposed brick and great authentic food.
Love the atmosphere of this place with the exposed brick walls and bar. Biricchino's was authentic and intimate so definitely make reservations as I'm sure it fills up fast! I appreciated the complimentary bread and pitcher of water on the table. My sister and I each had the Manicotti, my grandparents each had the Rigatoni, and my aunt had the steak - all were very good. We each got a separate dessert and they were delicious - definitely save room for them! Our server was polite and memorized everything we ordered. We never felt rushed and really enjoyed our time there! Definitely would dine there again.
Second time eating here with friends. Noise level depends on which room you are in. The main dining area is much noisier but we were at a back table where we were able to hear each other talk. It was a tight fit though for four older women but we made it work.
Food was just as delicious as the first time which is why I returned. Hope to be in the side room next time I dine there.
Always enjoy stopping in for some wine and well made, portioned delicacies! The home made sausages are a wonderful appetizer, and whatever is chosen as the main course is always well prepared and delicious. Looking forward to my next visit.
Kitchen was very slow. Food was overpriced for both quality and portions
Delicious cuisine, great service. NYC Prices, of course.
