    I really enjoy Fiorello's. The pricing is no too unreasonable but the portion size is small. Other than that the menu is varied and delicious, desserts are great and overall a really nice place to eat.

    It is unfortunate & unacceptable that the tiny & almost inaccessible bathrooms have never been upgraded & renovated after all of these years. We will not return because they bathrooms are NOT handicap accessible. Too bad...the food is very good.

    Very fun, upbeat place. Maitre D seemed genuinely happy to welcome me. Showed me to a great table even though I was dining alone on a Saturday night. Just a very fun place with good food and energy The only negative is I felt a bit ignored by the waiter. I had to wait a while for water and to order a drink. He forgot to bring bread to the table even though I specifically requested it. I wouldn’t normally really care but he seemed to jump to the tables around me, including bringing water as they were being seated. Again, not a huge thing and I will return in the near future *** I’ve lived in the neighborhood for 30 years and have been here many times over the years. You are a neighborhood fixture Thank you

    This is not gourmet dining, but it is the best place for a fast dinner I have found near Lincoln Center. The fried Roman artichokes are now a go-to starter. The vegetable "buffet" — not really a buffet, since they bring your selections to the table — is varied, suitably wholesome if you choose to be, and very fast. Their pizza is great and reminds me of a Roman pizza, with a thin crisp crust. Don't worry, the topics are excessively lavish, as you would expect in the US. Service is fast and cheerful. The patio is well-heated in the winter, and quite quiet. I wouldn't call it romantic or a place for special meals, but it is a great place for a quick dinner, with an adequate wine list.

    We were a group of eight on a Saturday afternoon. Usually we have excellent service and quality food. On this occasion, the food was mediocre, the service glacial. Disappointed, since generally this is a delightful place

    Go to place before heading to the ballet - we were in and out in 30 mins! We told our waiter we were heading to tonight’s show at Lincoln center and our food came out less than 5 mins after we ordered. The food and drinks were absolutely delicious - can’t wait to come back!

    Unfortunately was seated by the door in a jammed packed area were there were 4 tables for 2 and 2 booths for 4; barely enough space for guest or the wait staff. The food was tasty but overpriced, dinner for 2 salads, a pizza plus tip was $100. I’ll be looking for another option, especially as no bread served beforehand.

    We did the restaurant week menu. Everything was perfect, our waiter was attentive, our food was delicious and at no time did we feel rushed. It’s no wonder this restaurant was packed. It’s one if my favorite in the area.

    I have always loved Fiorello’s and I will continue to go back. However, the waitress did not want to wait on her tables. I can truly say this because the table next to us asked one of the runners if they could go get their waitress since she had been gone for a while. She never gave us anything for our order, even the to go bag. Fiorello’s always has high class service. I’m hoping last night was just a fluke. We love you Fiorello’s!
