We went for brunch on President’s Day weekend and enjoyed it very much! It was hard to find brunch reservations most other places, but they had a great brunch for a table of 6. The scrambled eggs with avocado toast, pancakes, and eggs Benedict were excellent. Good lattes. It was a bit expensive, even for an NYC brunch. The service was good, even though their clean up was harsh and quick. After a bit, they definitely wanted us to leave the restaurant because they were trying to get other parties in. Overall, a great and beautiful brunch place with classic NYC brunch food.

I was very upset that I'm paying for an more than normal pricier pre fix menu and on a special night of Valentine's Day and many items were not on this small menu it was upsetting because for two of our 3 courses we weren't able to get what we had originally planned on getting prior to making the reservation and adhering to a pre fix menu think we were gunna be able to enjoy what we wanted I'm not one to normally get upset when something is out but when it's a pre fix and also when your all planned to come in to pay a set price for something we wanted on this night and couldn't get it it was incredibly frustrating

Excellent Italian. Went for dinner with a friend on a Thursday and had a wonderful experience. The mescal Negroni was smooth and gently smokey. Our waiter Sarah was knowledgeable, friendly and attentive. The The food was delicious, and the portions were generous. I recommend any of the homemade pastas. The olive oil cake and an Amaro was the perfect way to cap off the meal. Can't wait to go back!

I brought two business colleagues who were visiting NYC here and w had a terrific meal. We each had a different pasta dish, and all three were winners. The service was helpful, friendly and prompt. My colleagues were impressed with the food quality ("the best pasta I have had outside of Italy") and equally impressed by the excellent value and moderate prices.

Arancini , Branzino And Brussel Sprouts were great. Nice selection of Negroni’s in addition to their wine list. WaitstAff needs to understand that diners need a few minutes to look at the wine/cocktail list . We were asked twice within five minutes of being seated what we would like “besides water” please , please , please I know you need to turn tables over but give people a little breathing room

I like this place - I really do. Great lighting and ambiance, the menu and food are good- but it’s just too loud. Hard to even talk.

Better than I remember this place when I first visited last year! The restaurant week prix fixe was awesome and the portions were generous. Lighting in this restaurant is also superb and overall just a great evening experience!

Delicious restaurant week menu & incredible service. Perfect for a girls night out dinner, we did it as a pre-broadway show dinner. Would be perfect for a date as well!

I went for the prix fixe restaurant week menu, which had some great menu items included. The appetizer especially was a pretty huge portion size - I got the brussels salad and got full off just that, and my cousin got the meatballs which included 3 pretty good size meatballs with crusty bread. For my main I got a mushroom- pesto pasta which was very aromatic and made for great next day leftovers. The dessert (olive oil cake) was not as amazing as the pasta but still great as far as cake goes.

Great service! Multiple employees checked on our table of 6 to refill drinks and coffees and make sure we were ok. It wasn’t annoying- very appropriate and approachable. The food was great! We went for brunch. Love this place!

The staff was friendly on a busy Friday night in east Midtown NYC. The salad was great and the olive cake desert was delivered from the open doors of heaven. The Chicken Milanese was undercooked and I worried about the risks of undercooked poultry. All was well otherwise and I would go there again.

Food was fantastic and fresh. Brussels salad was lovely. Rigatoni was cooked perfectly. The tiramisu was to die for. Very satisfied with everything.

The food was just Ok. I had the meatballs and while the flavors were good, they were hard as a rock. The polenta was so full of cream and butter that it lost the grainy flavor it naturally has and the mushroom side dish was so overcooked they tasted like candy. My friends had pasta dishes and seemed happier with their choices. The service was too much. They left the menus and not even one minute later came to take out order and were surprised when we weren’t ready. Left again and came back one minute later. Same with when the check arrived. The waiter came three times in a span of five mins to grab our credit cards. It was quite annoying. It was clear he wanted to turn the table quickly but be patient. This wasn’t good service.

A perfect place for a mid day business meal, or a date day or night. Incredible meatballs and though I’d usually be apprehensive to get a burger at a restaurant like this with so many Italian dishes, their burger is a must.

We went to La Pecora Midtown for Sunday brunch/lunch and all 7 of our party were really happy with our meals and cocktails (including one vegan)! Our server was amazing - just the right amount of attention. We topped off the meal with Tiramisu for the table, which was delicious and beautiful. We highly recommend this place!
