[NOTE: We welcome walk-in customers! At this time, we are only accepting reservations for larger parties, but have many small tables open for our walk-in customers.]

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.

Felice 83 is a wonderful place, offering superb food, an excellent and interesting wine list, friendly and effective service, and a truly welcoming ambience. My wife and I always enjoy our visits, and when I being business associates the experience is always a great success. Kudos to a fine staff, who make each visit a welcoming experience.

Felice is always excellent! It is perfect for any time of the week, any occasion, any type of company. With Felice we temporarily step across the Ocean, go back home and cure our nostalgia, while still being in wonderful NYC.

The food and drinks was delicious — however, the service was a little frustrating! My partner and I went there on a Friday night date, and although the servers were very nice and friendly, We had a reservation for 9:15 and couldn’t be seated until nearly 30 minutes after our reservation. We would have appreciated our waiter kindly telling the people who were seated at our table that there was another couple waiting, but it didn’t seem like they were very concerned :/

Friends just bought Within walking distance; we hoped they would enjoy a visit to one of our favorite spots. Felice83 did not disappoint!
Cesar was excellent. He even made a list of the dishes I ordered for our guests so they might choose their favorites on their own.

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.

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 !

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.
