Front of house hosts were very nice and welcoming and our server was good. I was disappointed by the lack of vegetarian and vegan options and when I asked for a substitution as I have a dairy allergy I was told the restaurant does not do them, so my plate and palate was a bit sad. The menu is quite meat and dairy heavy so I would not recommend to any vegans or veggies.

Great menu for sharing. Scallops and pasta were prepared perfectly. Staff is polite and professional.

The food is really good. It’s the third time I’ve been here. But once again, the service is just awful. 45 minutes to even order our appetizers. We kept trying to grab someone and they kept telling us someone was coming over. They knew the service was poor so they sent us two desserts on the house. Get it together guys!

He had a quick dinner before a show on Friday night. Service was outstanding. We sampled several appetizers and sides and it was all fantastic. Cauliflower is a no miss.

I have always had an enjoyable meal at L’Amico. The food is delicious. The drinks are unique and tasty. The service could use some improvement. But overall, I would recommend this place.

I would highly recommend L'Amico!! First, the food is delicious--this was our third time dining there and everything we have had has been excellent. Second, or maybe even first, the service! The manager Karl is exceptional. On our second visit, there was a mishap with our order, and he could not have handled the situation any better. He is professional, kind and even followed up with me the next day. We are planning to make this our go-to place whenever we are in midtown.

L' Amico has never failed to please. The food, service and ambiance are all outstanding. It is no wonder that I make a point to dine here regularly and recommend it to friends; both native New Yorkers and visitors alike.

The food is way overrated!! everything else was actually great, but if they call that Italian food, then they are great competitors for the Olive Garden.

Great for a quick lunch or informal dinner but wouldn’t consider for a special event and certainly would not recommend for Thanksgiving. Simply was not that special. The closure of several blocks along 6th Avenue made transportation a challenge as well

best pizza. Amazing Bolognese. 10/10 food. The people/friends at my table were young and were asking questions about the menu and the waiter was almost mad, I have been here many times so I tried to answer some of their questions but some things were in italian that I did not understand either. So yes I will always come back because it is my favorite restaurant but my friends probably won't due to the attitude of waiter.

I was looking for a restaurant for my finicky 12 year old and for adults that wasn’t a pub with burgers and wasn’t so expensive and inflexible that they wouldn’t accommodate my son’s preferences. We also wanted to try someplace new and near midtown. L’Amico was a pleasant surprise. The food was very good and the service was very attentive and efficient, but not so much that we couldn’t enjoy the meal. My son gad meatballs that were delicious and I had the bolognese sauce that was also fabulous.

I did find this restaurant through Zagat’s and they were on point.

Try it!

Food was very good. The linguine with clam sauce is spectacular. The service, on the other hand, is spotty. We ordered appetizers a middle course and an entree to split and they brought out the middle course and the entree at the same time. When we mentioned it, they didn't correct the mistake. I would say our elapsed time at the table was under 45 minutes.

This is my 6th or 7th time at the restaurant, but I have consistently found the service to be mixed. I also find that the sommelier pushes wines that aren't quite on point. Have had that experience more than a few times.

This is a great little place for everything from pizza to pasta to meat or fish entrees. We enjoyed the burrata and the meatballs for appetizers. The pastas were excellent as well. The chocolate cake was amazing but the italian cheesecake was a little dry. We would definitely go back.

If you are going to a Madison Square Garden event, this is a great choice for early dinner. We did not feel rushed or pushed out for the next sitting. Great service. Pretty good food.
