Excellent food, impeccable service in a cozy, neighborhood restaurant setting. My new favorite place to take family and friends. Pricey but worth it.
Such a nice evening. Authentic and delicious food, lovely atmosphere, great service. I'll be back.
A late lunch visit was very enjoyable, with attentive service, a fine wine selection, an an unhurried atmosphere. The prix-fixe selections are quite generous and nicely-priced, but variations off those selections escalates the bill. The arugula salad and veal with mushrooms had a tasty sauce, and the pappardelle with mushroom sauce was delicate yet full of house-made texture. Salmon was cooked as requested, with just the right amount of grilling. Overall an excellent option before or after visiting nearby museum venues or the park.
Food, and service was outstanding. We’ve been previously, and it is always consistent and dependably excellent.
Our food was really good and the service and the charm of the place make it all outstanding and a nice rest from the loud city
All I can say is this is a very charming local restaurant. Some out oft owners but mostly people who live nearby....peaceful, relaxing and charming.....I adore this place
Very good and very local. A nice quiet place to go.
The food was pretty good, but the service so bad it almost ruined our Saturday night dinner with friends. Coat check dropped my coat on the floor. We were given a major hard-sell on their bottles of sparkling water. When we said we wanted two tap waters and two sparkling, with limes, didn't get the limes. When we ordered martinis with olives, we got twists instead. We hadn't had the drinks more than a second or two when the waiter interrupted our conversation to recite the specials. When I asked him a question about ingredients in one he seemed annoyed. I made it a mission to warm him up but never got him to crack a smile. I told him I didn't want the potatoes that came with the veal chop and my husband said he didn't either, but we both got them. I was almost finished with my sparkling water when it was refilled with tap. Everything was so rushed with no time to sit and talk with our friends. When we got out, my husband and our friend both said almost simultaneously - nice food, but lousy service! Nothing egregious but a serious of misdemeanors...
Quiet, gracious service and excellent , authentic cuisine in a restaurant tucked off Madison Avenue. You will find superb pastas , excellent fish and a good choice of wine. It is our quick way of taking a magic carpet to Italy
Wonderful meal, will rbe sure to visit again.
Food, service and environment excellent.
Wonderful restaurant, where I had lunch with a friend I hadn't seen for at least ten years. We wanted a quiet place where we could talk at length and catch up. At lunchtime on a weekday, this was it. I had grilled portobello mushroom, which was simply and delightfully prepared, and branzino with vegetables (I substituted one vegetable for the potatoes that ordinarily come with the dish.) The branzino was simply broiled, but perfectly. The vegetables were not under- or overdone, and were seasoned with just a little butter. I had strawberries (without the whipped cream that usually comes with them), which were also perfect. Simplicity and superb cooking are the hallmarks here. I don't know about the value, since my friend paid for both our lunches.
This is a neighborhood jewel, where you can have a quiet lunch or dinner with great food in a quiet environment.
Wonderful food, as always. Great service and very comfortable.
We had an early reservation on a Sunday night with the Oscars on so it was fairly quiet. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. My daughter enjoyed a wonderful gluten free homemade pasta dish, I had a perfectly cooked veal chop who h was recommended by the staff. My wife loved the tuna and avacado appitizer an the homemade pasta with shrimp. We will definitely return.
Wonderful food, service, and ambience!
We arrived here after a horrible experience at Sistina, a restaurant downtown the street. (Please do not miss that review!) We had a wonderful waiter who made us feel special. The food was fantastic!!!$ our table was wonderful and the evening a wonderful success. The caccio y pepi dish was as good as any found in Rome!!!!!
The food was delicious. The 3 of us really enjoyed it. My husband's veal chop was prepared perfectly. I had 2 yummy appetizers. My friend enjoyed her $27 mushroom soup (a little steep) and pasta.
The veal is a must. Quiet spot near the Met. Perfect place for a business lunch. Excellent service.
So pleased to find this gem. We appreciated their quality food, service and atmosphere. Everyone in the restaurant understood the balance of service, quality and price. We were welcomed as if we were long time neighbors coming to dinner.
Everything was fabulous, food was Amazing, Service was amazing, we will absolutely be back!
Excellent food and service. Try the Veal Chop - outstanding.
Expensive but the food and service are worth every penny at this small, cozy, neighborhood restaurant. Don’t miss the artichoke appetizer.
food was good. We got there early and the wait staff hovered over us until we were ready to order. people need to understand that you go out to eat you want a leisurely night
Could not be more pleased!! Attentive service and authentic Italian....highly recommend. Enjoyed lunch after a day at the Met
We always enjoy the cuisine and dining experience there. One of my favorite restaurants in the City.
This is one of those neighborhood gems where you can eat once a week and have a different meal each time and never have a bad one.
Upscale restaurant with great food and ambiance.
A fantastic and perfectly proportioned 7:30 dinner with attentive professional service. The menu was both on trend and traditional. We were visiting, having just gone to the Met museum, but the tables next to us were occupied by locals.
Good food and a great ambiance, including a noise level that makes it easy to talk.
The lunch pre fixe was unbelievably great both times that I was there. Food was spectacular and for $29 for the lunch pre fixe, you can't find anything better in New York City (or Italy!) I will definitely go there for dinner in the future. Dinner prices can't match the luch pre fixe, but am looking forward to it. Service was also wonderful
Great food, service and overall experience. Definitely will come back
Somehow, they had no record of my Open Table reservation, but they made up for it with lovely service, excellent food, cozy ambiance, and altogether enjoyable.
Quaint. Very Italian. Good food.
If what you're looking for is an evening of conversation and great food, served by professionals, Giovanni Venticinque is at the top of the list.
Giovanni’s is one if our favorite NYC stops... quaint atmosphere, impeccable service, and amazing food!
Beautiful food with exceptional service...
Service was excellent, and the food was very very good. The execution of the dishes was fine but the creativity was not there and that’s where I had a bit of a problem. They price as if they were s little more avant garde.
Very, very expensive. Food is good, but not special.
The food was superb. The service was fantastic. The wine prices were far too high.
Great Restaurant! I have have been there several times over the past 15 years )
