Felice Columbus, brings the vineyards of the Tuscan Countryside to the Upper West Side.
The space is two levels spanning nearly 4,000 square feet, with the main ground-level dining room flooded by light from a wall of floor-to-ceiling windows and showcasing a striking 42 ½ foot bar. The lower level is an intimate cocktail and wine lounge.
The menu consists of Felice favorites including the Fusilli al Ferretto e Burrata and Pappardelle con Salsiccia, as well as, house specials using cured and smoked fish, and a Verdure section of the menu, the chef’s interpretation of plant-based and seasonal vegetables sourced from local farms.

An extensive drink menu can be enjoyed both in the main dining room or downstairs in the lounge. The robust Negroni program is not to be missed, featuring several curated Negroni cocktails, as well as, a build-your-own-Negroni option where you can create a tailor-made cocktail.

Drinks were served after the appetizers came out. appetizers were served unevenly. Mine came out almost 10 minutes after the other 2 people got theirs. Management was apologetic. Food was good. Service was courteous. They went out of their way for the birthday guest - gave free cake.

Food was delicious and service was lovely. We ate outside in one of their outdoor structures on a chilly night but was a special dinner out.

Love this place. Everything about it is great. The servers are always polite, knowledgeable and most importantly available if you need them. The food is good. The wine pricey? Maybe a little bit I get it. It’s a restaurant. Often hard to reserve a table but I also enjoy the bar. .

Lunchtime was quite quiet as we sat inside. The complimentary olive bread and oil was delicious. We had the lasagna and carbonara which was impeccable. I will look forward to going back.

Love this new neighborhood gem! Food was delicious, service was great and price was reasonable. My only complaint is that two of the four outside heaters weren’t working and it was pretty cold the night we dined. Will definitely be back!

Food low quality - the eggs were already pre cooked with a strong smell
Not a lot of choose in the plate
If considering that are in the same Sant Ambroeus group I was expecting something better.
Service not extraordinary
Pretending to be an Italian place but without enough quality

This was second visit to Felice on Columbus. Food and service were good. Unfortunately, the lambrusco I like by the glass was not available. Still, a good meal with attentive service. I definitely recommend and will return on my next visit to NYC.

Nice, delicious food. Somewhat pricey. Asked for bread Then asked for olive oil. Waitress gave a slight tablespoon. Interesting that restaurants are very slim with providing these amenities any more. Portions small and better for us all but so unlike a couple of years ago.

I love this location! We have enjoyed the food from many Felice locations on the upper east side, but Felice Columbus is so cozy and classy and festive. The bar is beautiful and I love the negroni program.

We were seated one hour after our reservation time. They promised us a complimentary appetizer but then ended up charging us for it. They brought an extra set of drinks (which we did not order) and charged us for it. The pasta was cold and undercooked. It was extremely noisy.

The restaurant is pretty and our server was very friendly. This does not compensate for the terrible food. My salmon and vegetables were tasteless and so oily that I couldn’t consume more than 3 bites. The chicken Milanese was mushy with a sweet Sysco style dressing and completely inedible. We were so disappointed.

Service was very good but I was not impressed with the food. My husband ordered linguine with clams and the clams were in little pieces and almost nonexistent! My salmon was not special. Bread was stale.

The new FELICE on the UWS occupies the space formerly known as CAFE TALLULAH, whose $1.50 oysters are sorely missed. Felice's menu is a bit limited, but what there is, is excellent. Service is the weak link here, even during slow times such a late afternoon/early evening. We especially enjoyed the lovely, warm personality of an Italian/Albanian maitre/manager, named Elvis.
