Everything was outstanding! Be sure to tell them, if stairs are a problem, so you can be seated downstairs. Our drinks were mixed to perfection and served in lovely crystal glasses. We were a party of six and shared two appetizers- tuna tartare and pear and pecorino ravioli. We all ordered different main courses and tasted around. As foodies, we had only accolades for each dish. We shared desserts. They validate parking at the icon lot at 2nd Ave, but not at the one between 2nd and 3rd. The subway is a short walk away. I highly recommend Felifia. While a bit pricey, it is well worth it.

I was super excited to eat at Felidia’s and it did not disappoint. My friend and I were considering the vegetarian tasting menu but there were so many specific dishes we wanted to try that our outstanding waiter suggested the Traditional Italian Dinner where you get to choose one appetizer per person, two pastas to share and two main courses.

Because there is only one vegetarian entree we chose that and a third pasta. Don’t judge.

Two different kinds of ravioli were so delicate that I don’t know how they managed to cook them. Every dish was creative, special and phenomenal.

When dessert came it was a tasting of three - the butternut squash tiramisu was amazing- plus an array of homemade Italian cookies. Best meal I ever had and I can’t wait to go back.

The food was, as expected, spectacular. The service was not. Main waiter had an attitude and we even caught him in a lie after he says something contradictory to the secondary waiter. We also felt rushed during the tasting menu.

The staff could NOT have been more professional, welcoming, knowledgeable and warm. Every need was addresses by staff. We must have met at least 10 of them over the course of our meal and each was lovely. The Italian tasting menu was incredibly delicious but too large! Felidia, you can decrease your portion size for the tasting menu.

Hadn’t been to Felidia in years. Still a lovely restaurant and I think Lidia’s best in many ways. Maybe a bit old fashioned but in a good way. Attentive yet low key service. They were very considerate of our pre-theater time frame. We shared a veal with tuna sauce starter. Very light and delicious. I had beautifully grilled tuna. My friends each enjoyed their dishes...calves liver for one and a black
and white pasta with mixed seafood for the other. It would be worth a more leisurely return visit for sure.

Upon returning to Manhattan we always revisit Felidia. Tom, Peppino and staff are welcoming and make us feel we're back home. The menu is exceptional. This trip we enjoyed an appetizer of grilled Polipo (grilled octupus), Zucca e Choco (Chocolate Ravioli stuffed with Burrata cheese) as well as Branzino. All cooked to perfection. For authentic Italian food we recommend Felidia.

Great ambience, fantastic food. You are well looked after by staff that are well experienced. Gluten free paradise- they had wonderful gluten free bread and a choice of pastas- I had the GF pappardelle with duck which was tremendous. One server manned the prosciutto station, just carving precisely off a large leg all evening- of course we started with that- fantastic. Servers are everywhere- seems to be as many staff as diners (and the rooms were full!), but they are attentive and non-intrusive both- we enjoyed our conversation but our water and wine glasses were never dry, and you are not rushed, despite the very New York ambience. HIGHLY recommended!

We had the traditional Italian set menu and it was absolutely delicious. Of course it was too much food as the portion was so big. So we took a little from each course back in doggy bag so as to leave enough appetite for the next course. Service was great even the bus people.

We have been to Felidia several times. The food is absolutely delicious. This evening we did feel quite rushed. They rushed us to order. My mother was not finished with her appetizer, but she was asked twice within 2 minutes whether or not she was done. They cleared our plates quickly. When we finished our dessert, the bill was presented before we asked. We wanted to order coffee but the bill was already given to us. I understand the need to turn the table, but a restaurant like Felidia should not rush its regular and loyal clients.

Our meal at Felidia this past week was just about perfect. From our welcome from the Maitre d' to dessert, the food and service were impeccable. The wine list was extensive and there were wonderful, fairly priced selections available. Our table ordered the Traditional Italian Dinner and every course was a delight. The pasta courses were al dente, flavorful and satisfying-sized appropriately for a 5 course meal. I had the tuna seared on one side and it was delicious-sashimi on one side and spicy seared on the other. The waiters paced service expertly-we neither waited for any of the courses nor felt rushed. Felidia has well earned-and continues to earn-its stellar reputation. We're already planning our return trip.
