Specialitá! Café Fiorello Lasagna
lemon beurre blanc, asparagus
The host at the entrance is very hostile and not willing to help customers to be seated. Amazing!!!
Waiter was excellent
Always my favorite! The food and service never disappoint.
The chicken pillared with caesar salad was crisp on the edges, tender away from the edges and terrifically seasoned. The caesar salad was a perfect accompaniment. I will look forward to that on my next visit.
I was pleased with the way the staff processed everyone through vaccine cards and picture IDs. If this is the new norm, they did it well.
Friends’ get-together lunch was impeccable. Staff were friendly in a supportive yet quiet way, food was delicious, and of course, the classic New York interior is always comforting.
Comfortable outdoor seating and moderate noise level.
Drinks and nibbles before the opera. Just what we needed.
Great service, great food, great company! Try the chicken or veal parmesan. You will be glad you did!
Pésimo servicio del mesero. Tardaron horas en servirnos. Mo vayan con niños, no tienen opciones.
Fiorello is my go to as an Italian myself. Love the food, staff and service. Bravi!
Great time!! Waiter Lyndon was amazing! And manager Michael very friendly. Had a great time! It was my birthday and we had a great celebration 🥳👏🏻
Reunion s we it’s family
Quiet Thursday evening for a small celebration. Used OpenTable to reserve inside but also called the restaurant directly to ask for a specific booth. Everything worked out perfectly. Table we requested was available and we were seated immediately. Waiter was attentive but did not hover. The noise level was low for a quiet evening. Our party of four had a lovely time and will do this again regularly. And did I say that our dinners were excellent? The short ribs meatballs never disappoint and the vegetable antipasto was lovely.
Great place to take kids. Waiter was inexplicably spacey but food was worth it. Sit outdoors!
We enjoyed the ambience, quality food and great service!
Great service but Ravioli was cold and they kept asking us if we really wanted it when we asked them to remake it!
Fiorello Cafe is always good and quality and service totally dependable.
The food was wonderful, it was a charming place, good wine selection, but it really felt like they were hustling us in and out as quickly as possible. Maybe just because they're used to theater diners? I don't know, but it was a little disconcerting.
Food was so good. I went back again the next day!!
Excellent food and service!
Our only comment is that we miss the signature bread basket.
Good food, friendly service, nice outdoor setting
My favorite restaurant in the Lincoln center area.
we ordered the burrata ravioli and the Four Seasons pizza - both were excellent. The firied shrimp basket was a little disappointing - they were not hot enough so the crunch was a bit soft. Otherwise, the drinks and cocktails were delicious and nicely priced.
Way too cold (despite asking several times to reduce AC strength)
Always a favorite. Outdoors is loud because it’s Broadway but I love the food and the staff.
We had a great time last evening. The food was great; our waiter went out of his way to explain the options and prepare some special plates for us. Just ask, they'll be happy to add twists to your meal. The ambiance was great and so was the value for the money.
Service wonderful, food very good, prices much too high, and no social,distance or vaccine status check making safety questionable
We had an quinoa and artichoke salad which was a fresh and creative riff on what can be made with quinoa. The dressing was light and the flavors melded beautifully. The service could have been more attentive but was appropriate when available. The outdoor space is enjoyable. Overall, a very good experience.
Good food and very accommodating staff. Menu is a little pricey.
One of the best restaurants for casual dining. They make the best thin crusted pizzas in all of Manhattan.
Love this restaurant.. just might be my favorite in all of NY
We love this place and have been coming back for years! Everything about it is wonderful- from the location, opposite Lincoln Center, to the welcome that you always get, and the way you can make your dining experience so special and intimate, to the incredible food- so flavorful, made with only the finest ingredients, and perfectly cooked, to the warm, homey feel you get at the dedicated tables- they never rush you. They always aim to please. Last night we came for an after off- Broadway theatre/cabaret experience called Celebrity Autobiographies. Two of us ordered their impeccable margarita pizza, so light and full of authentic flavors and with the crispiest thin crust ever! One of us had their rich, creamy ravioli with amazing fresh home made pasta. One of us had the phenomenal Dover sole- yum to all! The chocolate mousse with homemade real whipped cream is so intense and rich and, once again, perfect! What else can I say- it is our “ go to” place, and we will be back…
NOT DISABLED ACCESSIBLE. THERE IS NO WAY SOMEONE USING A WHEELCHAIR OR A WALKER CAN USE THE TOILETS
always reliable, satisfying and friendly. Love it.
A great place for a casual dinner. Good to note that they offer gluten-free pasta (corn based - penne shape) which is quite good. They also offer gluten-free pizza (have yet to try that).
A bit noisy but acceptable
Meatball app highly recommended
This is a go to place for me. Avocado and crab salad is divine. We were very comfortable in the seating inside. Didn’t feel it was overly crowded
Great as usual
Needed to go fast because of concert tickets. They made us feel like there was plenty of time and it was a great experience.
