    The antipasto bar was fantastic! The zucchini parmigiano was incredible. The roasted peppers were delicious. The artichokes were so sweet and tender. The potatoes were yummy. The cocktails were great! The salmon pizza was great as always as was the chocolate mousse. Can't wait for the chocolate mousse to be served from the metal pail again. There was a musician between our restaurant and the one next door and he was excellent. We sat outside on the patio and it was lovely. We had a wonderful date night. Thank you.

    Only reason for not. 5 was due to the osobucco with polenta with beef was good but polenta was blend and to watery. My chicken pepperoni Parmesan was excellent as usual and our new appetizers were great. Ended with lemon pie and tartufo. Thanks azoran for your great service.

    We ordered one serving of lasagna for the two of us. It was excellent, we ate to fullness and still had plenty to take home. No room for their excellent desserts. Excellent value.

    We asked for a quiet table and got a very quiet one, which was lovely. My wife had a selection of the marinated vegetables each of which was delicious (by all means try the mushrooms). I had "chicken milanese" which turned out to be a butterflied piece of chicken breast pounded out to a thin plate-sized piece of chicken, then breaded and fried; served with a half lemon. It was on the plain side but delicious and beautifully cooked. This was our first trip; we intend to go back often.

    My guest and I enjoyed a lovely seafood dinner. The petit Filet of Sole in beurre blanc sauce was absolutely delicious as was the Shrimp Oreganata appetizer! Great french and italian wine choices. Two misses: the octopus appetizer with hummus and the Tartufo encased in a tasteless chocolate ball. Everything else was worth the evening and the expense. Exceptional service by our professional waiter Dominick made it all the more special. We will be back!

    From the minute we arrived we had a great experience. Our friend told us to go here and the host was very charming, he noticed that my voice was professional and asked if I worked across the street at the Metropolitan Opera, so now you know it’s perfect for the theater and Lincoln Center! The pizza is fantastically crisp and there special pizza is one of the best I’ve ever had! The martini’s fabulous! As simple as that drink is to make, I send them back all the time! The waiter was on his game too! Super nice and had great humor on the hottest of days. An all around great experience! I’m picky too! Yay!

    Always welcoming, lively ambience, excellent food. I had the avocado and lump crabmeat salad, a beautiful composition with lots of crab and perfect avocado along with some greens. Delicious and huge—even with sharing, there was enough for another meal at home. Cocktails are generous and nice wine selection. Love this place.

    Perfect location before/after show from Lincoln center. All staffs were very attentive and friendly (Huge ++), they have lots of varieties including gluten-free, vegetarian etc. we got the bottle of white wine, shared Fried calamari (very fresh), four season pizza (best) and the spaghetti short rib meatballs (good). I wish if they have more wine selection with different price range and their bread (we got presto garlic) was lack of flavor i had to ask for more olive oil lol

    Everything was great. Except that the restaurant had no record of the reservation I made through Open Table. I had it on my phone, but the restaurant didn't. Fortunately the manager accommodated us. He had exactly 1 table left. I would call before going if you reserve through open table to be sure your reservation went through. It's a great and popular place. You don't want to get there and not have a reservation.

    The food was tasty, the service was quick and waiter was attentive. I understand because of the location of the Fiorello the prices are a bit more elevated. It was overpriced, for one person and one drink including tip, it came out to 74.00. Would I come back? Yes I would. Would I come here as a regular? Most likely not.
