FELICE 83 reflects the soul of Italy, inspired by the sophisticated streets of Florence and the rustic warmth of the Tuscan countryside. This cozy NYC newcomer showcases a relaxed ambience, with subdued lighting, exposed brick walls lined with linear shelves filled with wine, as well as rich, tufted leather seats. Italian wines and flavors from Tuscany will now be served in a modern space, infused with traditional elements, on Manhattan's Upper East Side. Felice 83 features classic Italian dishes from the menu of its sister restaurant, Sant Ambroeus, as well as tasting items and small plates, prepared by Chef Antonio Pamplone.

We were there for the Restaurant Week menu and it was delicious! Decided to accompany it with the wine pairing and were not disappointed. Highly recommend this restaurant!

It was as Sunday night and not packed. The staff was very attentive and allowed us to linger with just the right level of attention without being on top of us. Great value and simple vibe.

Been to Felice83 many times. This was the first time I was disappointed. The food was cold, pasta overcooked, and the sauce for ravioli with sage & butter was more like water than anything. Hmmmm... new chef? Ambiance is lovely and waitstaff very accommodating.

I have been to Felice 83 twice and both times have been very nice. I particularly like the atmosphere of the restaurant and they have a nice bar next door as well. The homemade pasta is also a hit.

Quiet, elegant yet casual for lunch or dinner. Prix fixe lunch is a bargain, and the restaurant is calm and service excellent. We like Felice 83 the best, but it is also close to our apartment, and is our neighborhood favorite. Salads are delicious and so are pastas and you can make the appetizer portion your lunch as the bread they serve with every meal is so delicious. Good place for a glass of wine late afternoon .

We come for brunch, every time we are in the city. My husband LOVES the French toast ! Berries, whipped cream and some chocolate , he's in heaven . Bloody Mary's are good too. As far as the ambiance, it is somewhat tired. Not cheap, but a good neighborhood spot !

Nice neighborhood restaurant. Food is good. Service was adequate. Waiter said that the whole fish was deboned. It was not. When brought to the matre d’s attention he said he would look into it and never came back and no one followed up. That was disappointing.

The waiter was inattentive, we had to ask for a drink, we had to have someone find her when we were ready to order. My pasta was undercooked and there was too much truffle oil which overpowered the dish. My friends chicken Milanese was dry and bland. Overall, a very disappointing experience

BRING A BIG FLASHLIGHT. Also, bring earplugs. It is dark. It is loud. We were there at 7:00 pm and there was a loud baby, crying its heart out, and the parents did nothing to quiet the poor babe. Then, I had to use my phone to read anything. It was dark, the way your bedroom is dark---for sleeping, not dining.
It wasn't romantic...it was black dark. I had to use my phone light to get to the restroom.
The food turned out to be delicious. We shared an eggplant involtini and it was delicious. My branzino was perfect and my friend's chicken was also delicious.
But I cannot return to this restaurant, because it was too physically uncomfortable. Maybe I will go there for lunch, some time...but never again for dinner.

I had indicated that it was our anniversary. When we were greeted by the hostess she acknowledged our anniversary and was extremely nice sharing her own parents having been married 36 years as we were celebrating 37 years. We got a booth which is what I requested. At the end of the meal they brought out a tart with a candle and the plate said Happy Anniversary. It was so sweet. I have to say the waiter was also great. I'm afraid I in don't know their names but is was 6PM on September 13. My wife and I have dined at Felice a number of times and it never disappoints, but tonight was extraordinary. My wife and I got another sweet send off from the hostess as we left. We are still talking about the great experience. Thank you!

While the food was excellent, the service was horrendous! Sister was totally inattentive and good came out piecemeal making those who go entrees first eat cold food. Shame on Felice especially when they added a mandatory service charge. Noise level made it impossible to have a conversation. Only reason it gets 2 stars is because the food was actually good.

The main course- paperdelle with Italian sausage and quinoa with tiger shrimp - was very good. Gaspacho - was not good. Homemade Ice scream - was not good. Besides, they brought ice cream in a paper cup. There were supposed to be 2 scoops in a tiny cup. Paper cup in a restaurant? Rose wine was good. They did take off the items my wife did not like off the bill, though. Service - is good. But, the hostess dropped the menu on the floor in from of us and still put it on the table right in front of us. Needless to say, we removed that menu of the table.
Will give them one more try - now we know what not to order.
