Have been here several times, usually pretty or post opera. Had dinner early Saturday evening after a day in the city. Nice pleasant outdoor seating. Restaurant seems less crowded during the summer months. Service was attentive as always. While the food is not re writing the book on Italian cuisine, serving standard dishes and an extensive antipasto bar, it is always well prepared and delicious. Highly recommend the artichokes a la guide if you haven't tried them.
Great place -Eurpean flair - nice touches like home made cookies and chocolate....gratis!!
LOVE the Italian Wedding Soup and the Meatball pizza.
Been going there for years and it just keeps getting better
My husbands birthday
This restaurant , while a landmark establishment , feels tired . Service was minimal and non engaging. The place needs to be re ignited
This place is always good. Wonderful antipasto bar. Lovely service. Outdoor seating available in summer.I really appreciate the petite Dover sole,making my favorite dish affordable for once. They always get you out in time for a Lincoln Center performance.
Excellent food.... great location.
We’ve enjoyed this restaurant in the past but were
Always excellent Italian fare. Unusually quiet for lunch as more people sitting outdoor areas. Cobb Salad with chicken was excellent!
Terrific meal in a great spot. It was my first time in this restaurant and everything was perfect. Super friendly staff. I’ll definitely return.
Really disappointed that they charge for drink refills. The food was ok, but not any better than I've had anywhere else. I would not go back or recommend it to anyone.
I usually order an antipasto assortment but this time I got an "Italian Cobb Salad," which was wonderful!
Delicious food, good service and ambience. Nice before Lincoln Center. The antipasto table is really special!
Delicious food and great service! Nice wine selections Limoncello after meal was a nice touch. Our table was tiny...wish we had asked for a booth
Great food. Fresh, creative, well prepared, delicious. Great fish, pasta, vegetables, salads, desserts. A happening place. Good bar. Across the street from Lincoln Center. Can't go wrong.
Food was excellent but it took almost an hour get to the table which was a disappointment.
Cafe Fiorello's is a very good reliable restaurant excellently located across from Lincoln Center. Always a wonderful place to eat. Would like them to give points on OpenTable.
Good ambiance inside, since most patrons wanted to be outside. Very good service. Most dishes were overpriced for how good they were. Several were very disappointing.
A delightful dining experience! Courteous warm welcome from the hostess to the wait staff. Food as always delicious and just the right serving size. There are lots of vegetarian options, but for me the seafood risotto is the best I have had! While a little louder in the bar area, the back tables are quiet with an elegant yet homey ambiance. With its prompt , yet unhurried service and proximity to Lincoln Center, Cafe Fiorello is the perfect place to attend before a ballet or concert. Everyone I have brought here returns again. Looking forward to returning to try the brunch menu with my husband soon:)
Lunch took a half hour to be served. restaurant was almost empty
Food came out cold. Disappointed in the portion size for price. Have eaten there before many times before but this time was a disappointment. Service was excellent and atmosphere was great as usual
Pepperoni pizza was delicious- thin crust with pepperoni slices baked to give a slight crunch. The avocado crab salad was pricy for the serving size. Chicken burger was very good and their sautéed spinach is as good as Bar Pitti’s!
Cafe Fiorello is a lovely restaurant near Lincoln Center with delicious food. My petite dover sole, as well as my husband's seafood risotto was very fresh and prepared perfectly. In addition, for dessert we had cheesecake with fresh strawberries that was served with warm chocolate sauce on the side and it was an excellent choice. Our waiter was attentive and pleasant. We will definitely return for another meal.
Excellent restaurant, good food and lovely service. A bit noisy, but it’s rare to find a popular place that isn’t, especially pre- theater. Have eaten there many times, will again.
Sat in the from near the window which I like. The service was good..food excellent..skipped the wine because it was pricey. $15..WE shared a delicious ceasar salad and both had tasty pasta. Great location for Lincoln Center.
Great though the table was a bit too small.
My son and I enjoyed our early dinner at Fiorello’s. The food was great. Our waiter could have been more attentive. He left us for long blocks of time when we needed him or wanted to ask him a question. I love being so close to Lincoln Center.
One of my fav restaurants and go often. Made a res and requested outside. When we got there noting available except next to the place where dirty dishes go. I was a little disappointed because we are regulars. Then an unfortunate thing happened w the food and I lost my appetite. They apologized but not visit from the manager or anyone in charge.
I don’t like to give bad reviews but they need to get back on their game. This is a high end restaurant and they need to be in touch w their customers.
The hostess found us a quiet table where we could converse even when the restaurant became crowded. The food was creatively prepared and delicious.
Outstanding service aside, each and every dish was done with absolute love. Even the most simple pasta is exceptionally delicious. Although not as overrated as the rest of the Italian restaurants in NYC, Cafe Fiorello is quite a neighborhood gem. My absolute weekly staple.
The online menu showed both a brunch and a lunch menu. However, when we got there only the brunch menu was available, which did not have what we wanted. The only cooked items were breakfast foods and pastas. Everything else was cold (salads, antipasti). As we were finishing our meal, we heard what sounded like a waiter listing specials to the people at the next table. I didn't think food was worth the price. Nothing remarkable. Wines were $12 - $18 a glass, beers were around $9.
Just ok nothing special. Would not recommend sorry
Fiorello’s is our go to place, we enjoy sitting outside
during the summer months, food is always good and
Mateo is very helpful!!
Popular Lincoln Square venue fairly noisy at peak service. Prices are a bit high, but food is quite good.
waiter was polite but it took some time before he gave us any attention. we waited for some time before we got water and bread and we had to ask for it. we ordered a seafood platter for two but it would be barely enough for one and way too pricey for the amount of food it had. we were really disappointed even though the quality of food was good, but i would not recommend it.
Food was really delicious, portion sizes were good, and our server was very nice and friendly. We had a great time. Definitely a place to come back!
I love Fiorello’s. Great food and service. We had a booth so it made our experience pleasurable. Thanks.
It’s always fun to sit at the bar. Food is very good and the people are friendly.
We always enjoy Fiorello's. Staff are very personable and attentive and food is great!
Although the restaurant was nearly empty the booth we received was in the rear on the way to the toilet. I noticed another senior couple received similar placement. The restaurant was not full when left. We have been patrons for many years and guess what, we got old.
