Our regular weekend family brunch hang out with the kids. Great service and food as usual . Delicious thin crust pizza selections.
food was outstanding. We shared a Caesar salad and had chicken parmigiano and chicken peperoni parmigiano. We shared the spectacular chocolate mousse, which is the best in NYC and maybe in the world.
Pepperoni Chicken Parm dinner is amazing. Make a reservation...packed and lively venue. Smiling, kind staff.
The food was delicious and the service was impeccable!
It was wonderful to enjoy a lovely lunch outdoors on a fabulous day. The food was excellent as was the service. The outdoor cafe was a special place to have lunch.
Food was very good. Excellent service. Perfect location for pre-theater at Lincoln Center.
Food was good but not excellent. My Caesar salad was mediocre and small portion for price. Service wasn’t great and they weren’t even busy. I probably wouldn’t go again. We ate here before going to Broadway at Lincoln Theater.
Terrible terrible terrible.
The service this evening was terrible (on a Sunday evening when the restaurant wasn’t full), not at all up to Fiorello’s usual standard. The food, however, was excellent. I would not hesitate to go back — but I don’t understand the lax and inattentive service!
We had a disappointing visit mainly because on a Saturday evening after the theater crowd left, another wave of customers arrived seemingly at once so our waiter became overwhelmed and the service disappeared. Our granddaughter’s pizza arrived after the others were nearly finished, and this was thanks to the manager stepping in. The food was delicious, the ambiance fun, so all’s we’ll that ends well. Fiorello’s remains an interesting Lincoln Center eatery.
The food was great and nothing beats those fried artichokes all in all it was a very pleasant after Ballet
The food was delicious. I particularly enjoyed the hurrays ravioli. Our waiter was very gracious and attentive. Perfect place before a night at Lincoln Center. We will return.
We've been coming here for the last 30 years. Food is consistently excellent and it's right across the street from Lincoln Center. Best lasagna and ravioli hands down! The veal is so tender it melts in your mouth. Highly recommend this restaurant
One of the places we dine in when we go to Lincoln Center. The calamari and prosciutto and burrata are excellent. Or waiter Troy was professional and friendly. Desserts are killer. Nice selection of wines by the glass
Always a solid experience - great wine, food and excellent service!
We have been there many times and loved it. This time they put us in a dark corner facing walls and took forever to get service. My food good but my husband’s fish quite fishy’s
Good as always! It was a nice late dinning outdoor. Never try cocktails before and they where great!
Always a welcoming vibe! Pepperoni arugula pizza is heaven. Food is always consistent and servers are always kind an attentive. A neighborhood gem.
Good food and service as usual. The Quinoa salad with artichokes was wonderful. A little hectic!!!
Good good, service, price, and location can't be beat. Right across from Lincoln Center, we're never late for a performance. The food is fresh and well prepared. The service is attentive and helpful, but not intrusive. Go there. You won't be disappointed.
Been going to Café Fiorello for years. Stopped going for a while because of the menu change but have gone back serval times now and food choices have been great again. Love it when they have specials as they are always good. Service has always been excellent and they try very hard to accommodate us with our table choice. Food is always fresh and serviced hot.
Great food and service. Dining outside at sidewalk tables was not remotely considered due to extremely loud vehicular traffic. Great bar
The food is always quite wonderful here (I especially like the Pasta with Pesto), and the service is usually excellent with old world charm. Unfortunately, our server seemed frantic and disorganized, and we waited 15 minutes just for our cocktails. I will return, though, hoping that this was a rare mistep.
The waiter was awful. I ordered a bottle of wine and about 15 minutes later someone else came by to say they were out of the bottle I ordered. We asked for the table to be leveled and he said yes. 10 minutes later I had to remind him. Rather than going around the table to pour water, deliver food, etc, the waiter and busboy kept reaching across. Very unprofessional. After all this, the waiter got pushy about dessert and/or an after dinner drink.
Fortunately the food was very good but the service distracted from it.
Not a good night at Cafe Fiorello. We booked a 5:30 reservation for pre-theater at Lincoln Center - thinking it allowed plenty of time for dinner before the 7:30 performance across the street. We barely made the performance on time. The waiter mixed up our first course - simple selections from the antipasto bar. It took forever to get our main course. The Maitre d' offered a "quiet table" when we arrived at the restaurant - we accepted. We were then taken to a table that was in a very poor location at the rear of the restaurant near the kitchen. We refused the table and were seated elsewhere.
exceptional antipasti choices. Very good meatballs. Well done spaghetti and sauce.
The tables are bistro style tiny. I did not care for the fancy soggy bread. The food and presentation were OK but not over the top. Service was business like, efficient and fast, almost eager to turn the table over to the next patron.
Great for pre-theatre dining. Delicious drinks, appetizers and a killer tiramisu.
Whether you are looking for an assortment of filling appetizers, a variety of main dishes, or even Pizza, Cafe Fiorello is the place. Their Italian food is authentic, delicious, and served piping hot the way it should be. Because the restaurant is right across from Lincoln Center, service can be a little slow during a rush right before the curtain goes up. Otherwise, no complaints.
😊 great!!! One of the best
My best friend and I ate brunch here on a very soggy Mother's Day just before a show. We were served by Jim, a most charming fellow, who made the occasion even more enjoyable. The food was excellent - Bellini, artichoke high omelet and salmon and quinoa (accidentally sans salmon!), and a delicious tiramisu.. Will definitely pay another visit.
The Bella Benedict is very tasty, and my partner always really enjoys the Spaghetti carbonara. They treated us very special giving us extra yummy sweet bread before our meal and some bubbly wine for both me and my mom. Very generous portions and for New York the whole package is a great deal. Another plus it is close to home. Love this place.
I came here with my husband and children and really had a nice time.
Great food and close to Lincoln Center. Veal Parmesan covered the plate! Bolognese dish was absolutely wonderful. Tiramisu was heavenly. Staff is attentive. This is my first choice for dining near Lincoln Center
Convenient to Lincoln Center. Takes reservations. Very good wait staff. Sat outside.
We asked for a quiet table and were given one. This was very important, as we wanted to be able to carry on a conversation without having to shout. The food and service were first class, as always!
Love Cafe Fiorello! Across the street from Lincoln Center. Lively, delicious, classic New York City -wonderful, busy, yummy Italian food. Highly recommend.
