Good food. Came too fast. A bit on the expensive side. Great wine list but also a bit expensive.

The downstairs dining has more ambience. We were seated in an upstairs dining room used for overflow. We should have been given a choice. Food was good but we were overwhelmed with the choices of family style, pre fix, chef’s choice, italian pasta and a la carte. Lost some if it’s charm in upstairs dining with all of the lights on.

The restaurant does not have food that you can say “wow” any longer. We found the food average. The veal dish was not warm. They still know how to cook pasta properly but the sauces were just okay.
The service was very good as expected.
The chairs were incredibly uncomfortable for me, anyway. With that, I could not enjoy my meal as much.
I wouldn’t return.

We booked and went on Valentines Day for dinner. Did not notice that restaurant was not offering a regular menu but Valentines day special 4 course menu at $158, which was almost 2 times more expensive than their other pri-fixes. Which is fine, since this restaurant is owned by Lidia's family and supposedly offered higher end dining experience, in addition to it being Valentines Day evening.

It was supposed to be 4 course meal - appetizer, pasta, main and dessert. Food was delicious, but was extremely small portions and we were still hungry by the end of it. But this meal stretched over 2 and half hours because the kitchen was really, really behind on sending out food. They were keeping diners waiting for more than 3 hours to serve the 4 courses. They actually tried to skip the pasta and served us the main course, but my wife noticed that they didn't serve the pasta and the server took the mains back. We then waited 30 more minutes to be served the small serving of pasta, which we ate with great gusto since it had been more than an hour since we were seated.

We were lucky and waited only 30 minutes for each course but couple sitting next to us were still waiting for their pasta course by the time we finished our meal around 11pm.

The staff seemed to be having their own issues, diners could hear them arguing, 4 people came to take our order, there seemed to be no coordination among the staff. Dining room on 2nd floor is small so we could see diners getting wrong entrees served, diners getting annoyed from long wait. Almost seemed liked diners were waiting for some producer to pop out and tell them that they were being pranked and everything was caught on camera. Unfortunately and obviously that did not happen and we ended up with a bill of almost $500 and left slightly hungry, amused and shocked. I will definitely write to them about my experience and ask for some of the gratuity back. They probably know that people will be contacting them with similar requests.

Went for Valentine’s Day. Have been many times before but not for last year. Was completely awful. Waited 30 minutes for table and food was very slow to come out. Pasta was cold and one uncooked. Staff was clearly discheveled. 500$ for two food and service should be far better!

This is the most consistent restaurant in NYC for food quality and service. The pecorino and pear ravioli is like no other pasta I've ever had and every guest we've taken there from around the world say the same. The service is swift, efficient and elegant without being stuffy. In fact, that's the feel of the entire restaurant. It's one of our top 3 go-to restaurants in NYC for an eventful night or just a delicious dinner out.

My partner & I went there on Valentine’s Day. We arrived a bit early for our reservation and they graciously sat us within minutes on the upstairs level which was only a quarter filled. Still many tables empty. They were offering a 4 course Valentines Day special menu for $158 pp. The wine selection is way overpriced by the bottle ($70-$6000!) with an average price I would say around $150. We opted for by the glass and cocktails. We each had the Manzo Appetizer which was astounding. For my 1st course I had the ravioli which was delicious but lukewarm. My partner had the tagliatelle which was excellent. For our 2nd course we each had the Manzo entree which also was amazing. The dessert sampling was hit or miss. The mini cupcakes were unimpressive, generic, dry and tasted store-bought. The almond cookies were the best of the bunch: flavorful and fresh. The tricolor sponge treat was delicious as so was the sorbet.
And now the service. Attentive but VERY SLOW. They were super quick to remove the plates (within a minute) as soon as we were done with the courses, but we waited about 15-20 minutes between each course. They were kind enough to continuously replenish the delicious bread basket. Our total dining time was 2hr & 20 minutes! I appreciate not feeling rushed when we are at an intimate dining experience however it took way to long to serve us.
Final note, the hostess couldn’t remember/find which were the items (coats & bags) we had checked in, to the point that I had to go to the coat check closet and point out the items.

I was disappointed. Overbearing service, pretentious wine offerings...great fir the hedge fund managers and their expense accounts, I guess. Had the tasting menu and it consisted of way to much food, too rich, complicated by gastrointestinal woes in the wee hours of the morning. Won’t be back. I’m surprised, since I been to Del Posto many times and I enjoyed it thoroughly

Went for Restaurant Week. The salmon Carpaccio appetizer was amazing. Entre was very good. They have a terrific selection on Italian wines. Regrettably the wine mark up was about 350% (ouch!). Despite that, we loved. It is a NYC gem!

So looked forward to restaurant week at Felidia - but what a disappointment. We opted for the price fixed restaurant week menu. Never imagined you would charge additional for desert!! That’s not giving value.
Let me cue you in on doing the right thing ... Price fix done right means all inclusive:
~ Appetizer
~ Entree
~ Desert
~ Coffee or tea
And to be totally honest, portions large enough that we don’t need to grab a slice and coke afterwards. Sorry to be this harsh but we traveled down from Westchester to join you for lunch. Can’t help but feel that “bon appetite “ has been replaced by “how much $ can we gouge” .

Truly yours,

Wonderful cuisine! I had the Tajarin Tartufo with shaved black truffles and my wife had wagu beef on polenta both were exceptional. We spotted Lidia as we were leaving the Resturant. This was clearly one of the most memorable lunches we have had and we have had many ! Thank you for the superb experience.

I am Italian and I consider by far Felidia the best Italian restaurant in NYC for a very specific reason: it would be one of the best restaurant even in Italy. In the Felidia’s menu you will find spectacular signature dishes which will be superlative and surprising even for an Italian: the ravioli “cacio e pere” (cheese and pears) or the tuna for instance are the best proof of the creativity of the chef Fortunato Nicotra and are unforgettable. Also the most traditional Italian dishes as the stracotto or tripes or fegato (liver), (which are not so common to be found in a Italian restaurant menu in Manhattan) are perfectly executed.
Great wine list (particularly focused on Piedmont’s Barilla and Barbarescos) will allow you to pair the great dishes with the appropriate wine.
Last but not least, you may enjoy a great conversation with your companion(s) as the noise is almost absent int this old fashion traditional gem.
