We held an annual business dinner at Casa Nonna and had a delightful meal. Service and food, both impeccable as usual. A top notch and trusted establishment that is well run and always great.

We were in NYC for Toy Fair at the Javits. This was our annual Toy Fair Dinner with New York Friends. The Restaurant is lovely with large tables, and not all jammed together. The food was amazing (best lamb shank!!!)..........and the service was impeccable. It was Saturday night and we were not rushed in any way. We always look forward to this special event every year. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone!

Sad but true. Ive been here three times and my wife and I left here thinking it’s has lost its way and the food is not good.

The first time we can here we were blown away with pork belly and pasta dishes.

2nd time was with friends and it was okay because the chef left.

3rd time we came for our sons birthday day and it was terrible. The environment and staff was great but I paid over $200 for dinner for mediocre dishes.

Another overpriced tourist trap. I was surprised at the small portions and mediocre table fair.
Service was the only good thing about our experience.

Waiter must've been new - never told us the specials nor did he know anything about the whiskey. He was able to recommend a good red to go with my Filet Mignon. Other than that, my Valentine and I had a delicious meal and he was very very impressed with how great his fish turned out.

The front end hostess was extremely welcoming and fun. The wait staff did their job but didn’t have much personality. The food was real tasty and I could have made a meal of the appetizers. We went here before Billy Joel and the ambiance totally fit the theme of the evening. Overall, I would recommend this restaurant and patron it again.

Our favorite go-to Italian restaurant in the city. Perfect for a date night or celebrating a special occasion. The service is exceptional and the food is always delicious. We always get the brussel sprouts and most recently I had the swordfish and it was perfectly cooked.

Quite dissatisfied as there was hardly any choice on the menu - no option for classic Italian dishes or even classic desserts and starters. We were so looking forward to a lovely Italian meal on our first night in NYC and we were extremely disappointed. The food is overpriced and you do not get enough choice on meals. Staff were almost too attentive that you felt pressured into ordering straight away.

They were very accommodating from the door. Gave us a good seat as requested. Our server Tom was very patient in going through the menu and with his recommendations. Despite an error in one of our main course it was quickly rectified. Kudos to the owner Nick for his walkabout and checking in to make sure we were satisfied and that our dining experience was great. We told him that we would definitely be back. YES the food was exquisite. We had the restaurant week menu, Hangar steak tiramisu as well as the Rib eye and fillet mignon. The truffle mash potatoes were to die for. Their cocktails were also good. The ambience plus the food and the staff was worth it.

My friend and I recently went here before going to an 8PM show on Broadway. We took our 2 daughters (6yrs, 10yrs). The food was really very good. Service was wonderful. Atmosphere was really good and overall we really enjoyed ourselves. The meal was a little pricey but worth it in the end. Was close to the show and there was no fuss. Would recommend and return.

We were greeted warmly and well attended to most of our visit. The restaurant was roomy, artfully decorated and waitstaff was knowledgable about the food. Once the restaurant filled up we waited a very long time for my mother's dessert. The portion sizes for Italian food were small for the price, but this was no run of the mill Italian restaurant and since it's the Theatre District that's basically what we expected. That said the food was delicious and masterfully prepared. We would return for the pizza and dessert alone, but I'd sooner return for a date instead of in a group on account of the price.

The steak was extremely chewy. I felt like each bite took 5minutes to swallow. The bread was amazing. However I wouldn’t go back. Nothing impressed me.

Love this restaurant! It has great ambiance with a huge wall of artwork that makes it feel like a cool NY place even though it is in midtown. Great selection of Italian food (everything from pizzas to steaks). We were a party of four and they gave us a big comfy booth so we could relax and catch up. Great night!

I Luv'd it, from the music that was playing when I came in to the smile and kind words as I walked out the door it was a great experience. I was at the restaurant about 45 minutes early just by chance and although they couldn't seat me at a table they were able to give me a spot at the pizza bar. As I was alone it was fun to watch the making of the food and the back of the house. I ordered from the restaurant menu and it was excellent, the portions were the perfect size and the taste...nothing but yummy. Everything was done to perfection. I look forward to a return visit. The staff treated me so well. it was a great evening! thanks

We took my son here for his birthday and it did not disappoint! Starting with the amazing focaccia... to the wonderful desserts! All of them! It was 5 star! I highly recommend the meatballs and pici toscana! Taste just like the pici I had in Tuscany! If you are looking for an authentic Italian restaurant... this is it!

Located only 4 blocks from the World's Most Famous Arena, you knew that Billy Joel's 60th monthly Garden engagement was the area's drawing card. From cocktails through dessert, the service was exceptional, the plates flavorful, and environment very comfortable (despite being a fairly large restaurant by Manhattan standards). Cocktails included a flavorful Negroni ($15), Grey Goose Dirty ($17), French Martini, and Red Wine. The appetizer bruschetta included multiple topping options and the Chicken Liver (yes, really, the highest rated), Eggplant, and Tomato choices were terrific. Main courses included Prosciutto-Wrapped Tenderloin ($41) which included four nice slices and comes recommended. The Butternut Squash Ravioli was extremely pretty on the plate and a treat for the palate. Scallops over risotto were generously portioned and buttery soft. Desserts were "ok" including an overly dusted Tiramisu ($11) and Cheesecake with orange infused ice-cream. In total, the bill was $325 plus tip for our party of four.

Dinner before the Billy Joel show at the Garden. Greeting and service was very friendly. Gave us a table in the private room upfront. Had the veal saltimbocca, very nice. Charcuterie was tasty but the fried calamari was just average. Cappuccino was flat. Was a nice group meal spot before the show.

A nice place but rather small portions for the prices. No real bread, nothing comes with the entrees, and the wine pour for my "quartino" seemed a bit short.
