Food was amazing ! Server was nice . Prices are reasonable. We sat outside so it was a little noisy. But the inside is stunning. They have a whole lounge while you wait for a table . 10/10

Hice una reservación por mi cumpleaños. La velada fue muy ruidosa y calurosa. Además la comida no fue nada del otro mundo, escasa y demasiada cara.
Una desolucion

Requested outdoor seating and hostess seated us immediately in a street side shed which had little ambiance. No candles on the table, etc and it was dark already.
Waiters brought us menus and wine sommelier was pleasant and helpful and brought our wine right away. We had to ask several times for our cocktails and waiters were difficult to locate.
Service was extremely slow. Waiters never checked on our table and it took forever to get our appetizers. Yellowtail, grilled octopus & prosciutto were good. Tuna crude completely missed the mark with a weird yogurt sauce that was so strongly flavored it overwhelmed the fish. Dinner went downhill from there. Our waiters completely disappeared and after an hour and a half we still didn’t have dinner. When our main courses finally arrived they were nothing special. Pizza which listed several cheeses with mushrooms barely tasted of cheese and crust was soggy. Pasta with clams ordinary and roasted chicken passable.
We skipped dessert since we had been sitting for too long and had had enough.

Definitely not a restaurant it used to be. They let you book the restaurant for 8:30, but they serve food till 9:00 and ask you to leave at 9:30.

The food was average. Skirt steak which used to be amazing was simply awful!

Almost every aspect of our experience at L'Amico was negative. The waiter could not answer basic questions about the menu and misinformed us in a few cases when we asked about food allergens. Both of our starters had to be returned - one included rock-hard, totally unripe peaches and the watermelon salad came out with no watermelon. The replacements were minimally better. Two of three entrees came out cold (I'm guessing no time adjustment was made to account for the delay due to the bad starters and the entrees just sat). The cauliflower side was beyond "charred." Overall, the service was poor - no water, left sitting 20 minutes with the dessert menus, etc. The meal had a fitting end when one person in the party went to use the bathroom and found all the stalls in the ladies' room so disgusting they could not be used. Really unfortunate that the management of this restaurant is so bad.

Food was delicious. We ordered (1) peekytoe crab toast, (2) prosciutto platter, (3) Long Island corn, and (4) cheese raviolini. The crab and the prosciutto were standouts.

Service was incredibly slow.

I loved this place - but like all my other favorites; it suffered after the pandemic. They reconfigured a couple of things on the menu (octopus SALAD was on whole tentacle as opposed to A salad) - my friend ordered ravioli & ravioli was the size of quarters accompanied by tiny cherry tomatoes on his plate - the drinking glasses also had smelled like old standing water/moldy -

While I DON’T mind paying for great food this place has suffered & not worth the heft price . I visited 2 other Italian places during my visit & found them to be more on point.

My friend and I sat outside. The new waitress who was being trained assisted us and she was lovely. Fish was very good and portions were a nice size. The only issue was our outside table was noisy and was where people walked by a lot. But it’s NYC and one has to expect that. Lovely evening overall.

Just overall felt it was touristy and a chain like restaurant feel. Flavors were odd on every dish. Uses various spices that don’t blend well together. Bread was chewy and olive oil seemed old. One positive was s the pasta was cooked perfectly. I order the veal bolognese and the chicken.

Now having dined there several times (and am perfectly happy about that) I can confirm that it is a VERY noisy restaurant. Table-mates must shout at each other when the place is on full-tilt. I had to ask to hear a description of the nightly specials twice and even then I only got the broad strokes so I had to use my imagination. I can't remember from my dining experiences pre-COVID, but, the menu on July 28 struck me as somewhat limited - although what I ordered was absolutely excellent. No room for dessert, that's how good it was. My two tablemates could not finish their entrees as they found them "too spicy" which strikes me as something that should be made clear in the menu, no? My martini glass looked more like a champagne glass which is somewhat of a disappointment for the real martini lover. It was a lovely dinner. I have no problem recommending the place, as long as everyone is aware of the aforementioned caveats. There are clearly occasions where these conditions would not be appropriate.

After having delicious brunch meals at L’Amico twice before, this time I ordered from the lunch menu. The two of us shared two of their pizzas,,,and they were delicious!
For anyone who can’t decide between brunch and lunch on the weekend, try their pizza with smoked salmon. The crust is thin,,,crispy,,,on the well done side (which I personally like). All the toppings, including generous amount of a mild smoked salmon, worked beautifully together!
On the other hand,,,if you’re interested in brunch,,,L’Amico serves the best pancakes in the city!!
