    Very poor service. So many different people serving. Had to ask for many things. Tables very cramped. Not the excellence we have always experienced.

    Good food and service at the table. The hosts/front end staff were overwhelmed and seemingly unhappy back room has a water leak in the ceiling that dripped the whole time. You’re packed pretty tightly. After ordering your food no one comes back for drink refills.

    The restaurant is well located in little Italy, the premises are clean and inviting. The inside courtyard/garden are where the best seats in my opinion. The food taste and quality is very good and portion are satisfying. The prices are fair, even for NYC standard. The service can be improved a notch by pacing, ie. not bringing the main course before the clients finished their entrées. Same with dessert. It made us feel somewhat rushed. The overall experience is good, whoever wants to have the New York City Italian restaurant experience will enjoy it.

    We were a group of three visiting from the U.K. and really enjoyed this meal. Service was great (main waiter upstairs was on point and spotted / sorted a missing plate in moments). Busy place and we really enjoyed the Tony Pie-O-My painting and Bobby special’s board. Very amusing. Price wise it’s probably a touch expensive for similar venues in NYC, but nothing to catch you out. Cocktails were loaded so probably covered it! Thanks for a great night.

    Da Nico (on a Tuesday night) at least was the perfect spot for a quiet romantic dinner to celebrate a birthday. The selection and quality of the food was exceptional and the service was attentive. They went above and beyond to make us feel special.

    Da Nico's is one of our favorite restaurants in NYC. We chose this restaurant to celebrate Easter with the family because we knew it would be fabulous. We had several apps, including fried zucchini and stuffed clams. Every meal was excellent! The waiter brought out a special Easter bread to everyone's table. Our waiter, Jack, made the overall experience extra special. He was so attentive, upbeat, and fun! We always come back for more! Thank you for making our day a memorable one.

    An underwhelming evening. The food was good, but the service was poor. We had to wait 20 minutes for our table to be ready. Once our main courses were served we were completely forgotten about. No dessert menu or coffees offered. Wouldn't recommend, must be better options.

    Food was absolutely perfect and the vibe of the restaurant is authentic and fantastic. Loved our first waiter but after the food was delivered, he disappeared, and nobody ever came back to the table until it came time to clear the meal. Honestly it was fine because we didn’t need anything but it was noticeable that nobody checked on us throughout the meal. Menu prices were great, exactly what you would expect, and we had checked the menu before we went, noting that all of the pastas on the menu were roughly between $14 to $19. They had a pasta on the special menu (fettucini cacio e pepe) so I ordered that assuming it would be in that same range and when I got the bill it was $29!! My fault for not asking beforehand and luckily, it was absolutely delicious. My son had the spaghetti carbonara and we also ordered the margarita pizza and an heirloom tomato salad on special, all of which were fantastic. Can’t wait to go back especially when the outside is open!

    Booked this on our trip and OMG! The food is 100/10. We ordered a pepperoni pizza as a starter then ordered the rigatoni. Service was great they were very attentive and would always check on our table. They also gave us a complementary zeppoles which was a nice touch. Definitely would come back
