We had tickets to the ballet and ate here first. Haven’t been in years. It was just as wonderful as i remembered. Great food and great staff.
Awesome evening. Not completely all 5 cuz lots of couple seating on booth tables and we were offered small table and fried artichoke portón small for price but very good. Had the cauliflower Milanese, zucchini Parmesan and eggplant rollatini and they were awesome. Great service from Nick. Our chicken and veal pepperoni Parmesan to die for. Best limoncello pie.
Fiorello is Fantastic !!
So happy to find the tables and the whole room, decorated in full Valentine Day decor, with red balloons and even a big, chocolate heart, at our table! 🎈🎈Lyndyn was our superb waiter and when I asked for the Lasagna, he cautioned me, that although it was fabulous, it was not in the traditional, layered, dish form! FLAT he said but it looked more like a pizza, to me, so he was so kind to take it back and I settled on another entree, instead! Sorry, guys, my name ends in a vowel so I was quite disappointed with that!
Wonderful place for breakfast. Plentiful coffee, great service, wide selection, good food.
Seared tuna was heavenly
The food was outstanding. So was the service. A beautiful ambiance. Price reasonable for overall quality and experience. Very convenient to Lincoln Center. Highly recommended.
Matteo, the current chef, has lifted Cafe Fiorello out of the doldrums. He seems to know how to wow the palate and satisfy an appetite. Extraordinary.
Italian wedding soup was delicious and comforting. The calamari and shrimp over arugula offering was stunning. Portions were just right.
Although the antipasto dishes bear familiar names, they have been "resuscitated". Now glistening, fresh-appearing offerings have mouthwatering-want-some-more flavors and textures. Gone are the limp, the lifeless, the soggy offerings of old.
Service remains leisurely.
We had the worlds worst waiter and that he was attentive to other tables using our carafe of water, our salt and pepper, etc.
Worse, after we ordered, the food arrived in under 30 seconds. How were we supposed to enjoy our wine? Was the food cooked five hours prior just waiting for people to order it?
I've been coming here for 20+ years. The service was lackluster, slow and just ok. They forgot som of our items, bought over red wine when we ordered a pinot grig and were rushing us out of the table. Not their best moment.
Usually one of our regular go-to places at Lincoln Center, but two days ago it was a real turn-off. Deafening noise (amplified by their tin ceiling), rushed and inattentive service (repeated requests for everything from oil at the beginning to dessert menus at the end), sloppy practices (a dropped knife picked up from the floor and replaced on the shelf). The Judean-style fried Roman artichokes are still a winner and the tartufo dessert was a delight, but the clams oreganato were small and stuck to their shells. In consideration of better past experiences, we might give it another chance—maybe.
It is too costly with the level of service/food offered.
Just a terrific overall exorrience
You don't need to go to Little Italy to get fantastic Italian food in Manhattan.
Go to Cafe Fiorello's in Lincoln Center.
Food and service was fantastic.
Wonderful service, quality italian dining
The service was great, must try the fried calamari and the lobster fettuccine.
Next time I go, I’m trying the pizza, it look great
As always, food and atmosphere were great. It’s our go to place after our Lincoln Center evenings.
Make sure to ask about the specials for the evening. We jumped right to the menu so didn’t hear them till other diners sat down and they sounded great. But our Lamb Pappardelle and Tordelle Bolognese were fabulous!
We come here about once a month for the past 12 years or so. The service and the food are generally good to very good. This time we had the wedding soup for our appetizer and the salmon for the main course. The wedding soup was good, but they put the toasted bread in the middle of the soup so it was soggy by the time we got it. The salmon was okay, but nothing special. We waited patiently for the bread service, but none materialized by the time the appetizer arrived. We had to ask for the foccacia bread as none was brought to us. My husband's cocktail didn't have a straw and when we asked for one, we were given soda straws. That's fine if you're aiming to be blitzed instantly, however, our intention is to savor the drink. I got up and went to the bar to get cocktail straws myself. The chocolate mousse was good. The ladies' wash room was better than last time, but could still have used a refresh. We were there on a Thursday at 5 PM so the place was not crazy busy nor had it been through the dinner rush for the wash room to have been blitzed. Yes, we will go back, but it would be nice to have the staff employ a little more attention to detail.
A wonderful restaurant!
It is my favorite restaurant when going to Lincoln Center!
Our Cafe Fiorello experience was excellent as usual!
Always love this restaurant!
I don't consider Fiorello on the same level as the other Fireman restaurants, but certainly a better average. However, last night the service was awful. The restaurant was busy, but not crazy. We were given an excuse that our pizza was burned twice and that is why it came out so much later than the rest of our dinner. By the time it was served the rest of the dinner was cold. The apology was halfhearted. I go there often for breakfast and lunch too, but now I am sort of turned off. Felt were pretty much ignored by the staff.
Got together with a friend I hadn’t seen in a few years.
Great friendly and courteous service!! Wonderful ambiance!! Tasty dishes!! Awesome place to be whether attending a function or Not by Lincoln Center!!
Excellent food and service!
Food was good, service was fine. But very noisy and too crowded.
The quality of the food and the attentive service were consistently excellent.
Polite and engaging staff. Excellent breast of chicken regular menu item, unfortunately the pizza was simply average.
Good value. Good service. Perfect time for a meal, after an early 6:30 program, so it was less crowded & quieter than usual.
Pizza was very good with its thin crust though came out moderately warm. Problem was the antipasti was very disappointing
Good location and good dishes, especially dessert. The only detriment was the noise level and closeness of the tables.
Cafe Fiorello is one of our GO TO restaurants when we go to LIncoln Center area. The food is very good. The appetizer bar is always fresh and has lots of choices. The main menu has a good variety of meats, seafood, and pasta.
The meal was a late lunch (2:15) and noise level was much lower than the usual lunch or dinner noise levels. This made the meal more enjoyable than usual. Food was excellent as was the service provided by Domenico, who is a gem!
1 minute after they put down the appetizers they brought over the main course. We had them take them back.
They just want to turn over tables. Don't go here if you want to relax and sit and enjoy your meal..
The restaurant menu claimed to have gluten free items and when we ordered a meatball soup and the waiter confirmed that this was a gluten free meal, after a 45 minute wait the soup arrived with a piece of bread in it as well as farro.
They could not confirm whether the food could have been cross contaminated and therefore my friend left the restaurant hungry, unable to touch any of the food they claimed to be gluten free.
The manager compensated our meal.
A great option for lunch or dinner before a Lincoln Center event. The food is delicious and service attentive. Make sure to book ahead.
