What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
7.6

Finally, someone figured out that an Italian restaurant near Penn Station that serves food people want to eat would do well.

Ratings 7.5-8.0:These are restaurants that are reliable, tasty, and particularly good for whatever we have deemed them “Perfect For.” Hit up a 7.7 for Date Night with confidence, as long as you don’t need the restaurant to be the most interesting thing that happens that night.

We had an excellent eggplant crostini with mozzarella, and shared a lamb pasta, lamb tenderloin salad and salsiccia pizza. Which were all excellent. I also enjoyed my banana baba..However my daughter's gelato was tasteless and we couldn't finish it. The waitress was attentive and knowledgable, also very allergen aware. Overall a good meal and good service, but dont get the gelato.

L'Amico is always a great meal! Our waitress was lovely and i'm sure this wasn't her fault but we felt VERY rushed towards the end of our lunch. We ordered coffee and she dropped the check and came over 3 times to see if we put a card in there yet.. and we werent even almost done with coffee! Won't stop me from coming back, but there were open tables and it's not a great feeling to get rushed out when spending that kind of money at lunch.

I like the food a lot. I ordered the soppressata pie and had it many times but there was a spice Thyme added which is a strong flavor and although I was able to pick it off, just wanted you to know.

Reserved a table at L'Amico just to have a brunch with pancakes. The brunch was till 3:00 PM and they ran out of pancakes at 1:30 PM. Very disappointing, evermore when the waiter tells you that there will not be any pancakes today and you see that the guest who just sat down a table next to you orders a pancake a short half hour later. If we knew we could have waited for a while since we especially came for the pancakes.

Not a great experience at brunch. Service was very friendly, but incompetent. Took over 20 minutes after being seated to get some coffee. Lukewarm coffee at that. Another 40 minutes until our food arrived. Good was just ok. My friends didn’t like theirs egg dishes, especially when your paying $24 for an omelette. My salad with salmon was tasty. Not sure we’ll be back anytime soon.

Great dining spot but I will say no where to wait in the space you are literally in everyone way unless you go to the hotel next door which I didn’t wish to do. Also bar very small and packed so very difficult to get a drink while waiting. Suggest a host help get bartenders attention for waiting guests drinks.

“Date” with my teenage daughter. The food was excellent, every bite of it, from the salad to the sides (the roasted cauliflower was inspired and the branzino in a light cream sauce was surprisingly delicate) right down to the two generous scoops of gelato at the end. The only detraction was that our table for two was very close to our neighbors’ and, while the lighting was great and the open kitchen created a bustling but not over-bright ambience, some of the tables were definitely cozier than others. The bathroom (hotel bathroom) decor was...unsettling: a floor to ceiling glass cabinet displaying about 60 white plaster hands in different “poses”. Art?

Such a great restaurant! a tolerable noise level--so important to our age group. Great food and an amiable waiter. We loved the appetizers and one of the pizzas we ordered especially. The assistant who took part of our order made some mistakes and didn't bring us our extra pizza to take home, though. If they're going to take orders then be sure to get staff who can speak enough English for the job. Our main criticism: the prices for wine by the glass were very high for a "regular' NY restaurant, starting at $15.00, with beers starting at $10.00. I'm not sure what the rationale for this is but it kept us from ordering wine with our meal, a downer. I didn't look to see if the wines were special ones, but many people would be satisfied with an ordinary house wine at $10.00 a glass in NY ($8.00 or less in many perfectly good US cities).
