I love this place...they even figured out how to stay open and keep customers safe during COVID. The good and service are outstanding. Their white tents with heaters are private, cozy and quiet. This place is hard to beat!

The fish was great. Pizza a little burnt and served to us cold. Biggest issue was service. Waiter didn’t bring clean plates despite asking twice, struggled with menu questions and overall poor. Second visit in a week and the first one was great (food and service). Not sure I’d rush back.

This is a must visit! The menu is so perfectly curated for the season but there are some classics on there that will satsify just about anyone. The staff is friendly and welcoming, the ambience is relaxed and the vibe is very cool.

I will definitely be back!

Despite COVID, a great experience. Helpful wait staff, delicious pizza (mushroom is delish) and some interesting sour beers. Despite the 6th avenue noise, the outdoor accommodations are quite nice.

I first experienced L’Amico in the summer and had really good experiences. This time however was not so good. First, the greeter was very standoffish and acted as if she did not want to accommodate me even though we had a reservation. We were then told that she was waiting for a booth to clear which never did, and we were alternately seated at 4 chairs right out front. Very cramped for 4 people. The manager actually had to set the table for us. Wondered what happened to the booth?
Service was ok, the waiter attended to the couples to our left and right with great efficiency but gave us a bottle of water and never came back to ask us if we wanted refills.
To top it all off by son is allergic to shellfish and nuts and even though he asked us if anyone had allergies, and we told him at the beginning, he did not mention that the sorbets were now vegan and made with cashew milk. We ordered and right before my son ate his, I tasted it. Thank God I did because it tasted off so I then asked, only to be told that they were made with cashew milk. Calamity averted, but the simple fact that he took the order without saying anything and brought the dessert over was very alarming.
Long story short I was very annoyed and even more so, because guess what! We were the only black family at the restaurant! Not sure if that was the reason for the sucky service this time around or if it was simply the new girl out front of the waiter, but I was not pleased at all. They can definitely do better. Don’t think I’ll be going there again. Definitely sad because we patronized this restaurant a lot in the summer without issue and then this happens! SMH!

The outdoor seating was ample, even for my larger party of 5 and they've made an effort to make tables spread out and as nice as possible in terms of outdoor ambiance. It's still quite loud though between a bustling bike lane and heavy traffic on the ave. Multiple sirens and horns at times made it hard to even talk, especially in the build out section of outdoor seating which is sandwiched between bike lane and street. They do have heat lamps in their built out outdoor seating which is nice, although it's good to note that they're not very strong or effective. The effort there is appreciated there though!
Our server was nice but got a couple different parts of our order mixed up. The crowd feels a little touristy. The food was pretty good across the board. Strengths were meatballs, pizza and skirt steak. The pastas were less inviting and very little on the plate for the price point. Tiramisu and panna cotta were a disappointing way to end the meal.
Overall it's a decent outdoor option for a younger crowd that doesn't mind noise and needs a 5-6 person outdoor table!

L'Amico built outdoor seating along 6th Avenue and along 30th Street to accomodate diners during the pandemic; though not elegant, they are quite functional, and provide a barrier between diners and traffic. The food and service were exceptional. I highly recommend L'Amico.

Dinner for my 41st birthday with my partner and closest friend. I loved the intimacy of the outdoor setting with integrated drapery and lighting and the waiter/sommelier was very helpful and personable. I enjoyed the skirt steak, medium rare, with the Valpolicella he recommended. It was easy to forget that we were in the middle of 6th Avenue. I will look forward to dining at L’Amico again

Server was very professional and courteous. Cocktail was delicious. Pizza was good but it was Neopolitan style- crispy/charred on outside, soggy/undercooked in the middle. I personally don’t love this style of pizza, but it was still good. Liked the ambience here. I would go back!

Overly expensive for B+ food. The meatballs were flavorless. The cappellacci was good but the size of an appetizer, it was literally half the size of the malfadine alla Vongole. Definitely not worth $32 for 13 bites of pasta. It looked like the waiter spilled half of the dish on the way out. It comes in a large bowl when it could fit on a bread plate. If the menu or waiter stated that this was a small dish, we would have made a better choice. The mushroom pizza came completely burned. Disappointed all around. But, the manager offered us a free plate of corn...not kidding.

We LOVED our brunch here. Every single dish was so delicious and innovative. Their Covid set-up was also awesome - they transformed a busy street into a gorgeous deck with floating curtains and plants. It felt very luxurious. The only downside is there were a number of interruptions from the outside - a woman stole dishes from a nearby table and walked away, amongst other events.
