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!!

Brunch was creative, food was definitely above average and good, Some pleasant surprise, attention to details, The the filled frangipani bread, is highly recommended. The brunch is high priced, but then most places in New York City are, a Basic glass of wine at $ 16.00 is steep. Brunch for 2 was $ 140.00 Pizza and egg Picante in addition to the bread Including tip and tax. Nice setting and atmosphere.

Scrumptious! The bread (for the table) was delicious! The French Toast not too sweet, soft and crunchy, absolutley delicious. All the egg dishes we tried were wonderful and we all had different favorites. Eat here now!

I had the Seafood Agnolotti -- it was excellent! My husband had the raosted chicken and it was very good as well. I would say the restaurant was about a 3 Start restaurant -- solid Italian. Limited menu, which currently is to be expected. Service was good.

Great food and service, bad drinks. The Bloody Mary was poorly mixed, spicy and the garnish was sad - a wilted sweet pickle and olive, definitely NOT what you’d expect at a place like this. But their French Toast…. it’s a must. Highly recommend.

Consistently great brunch food. I love the ricotta pancakes and all of the egg dishes. The pizzas are great as well. This is my go-to spot when I need a good place to eat and drink near Penn Station. Food, service, and ambience are always on-point!

It was good but not worth the price. I live in San Francisco and I’m used to expensive but delicious meals. We shared to kale salad, burrata, and cauliflower (meh) and we ordered the veal pasta and mushroom pizza. It was all fine but nothing special. Would not spend the money again. Also, the server didn’t tell us there were any specials and I only learned there were some after we were enjoying our salads and he was telling the patrons at the next table.

Food was good but service bad. Despite having a reservation, parties that arrived after us were seated ahead of us at better tables and they tried to seat us in the bar after a lengthy wait. Overall, disappointing.

Mesmerizing evening here…
I had to wait a bit for my table (not an issue) and the Manager was super nice and apologetic, he even bought us drinks (great gesture).
The food? Crazy good, all the plates were Chef designed and perfectly seasoned.
I highly recommend, probably that is why it’s always full… Good For You!!!

My experience on 6/15 was so relaxing and delicious. I had booked indoor dining, but asked upon arrival if there was any availability last minute, outside. There wasn't, but the hostess and manager were both SO nice about double checking (and honestly, the floor to ceiling window doors made the whole interior feel outside anyway!). The pizza we ordered was delayed due to a MASSIVE order of pizza, but our server came over to explain (which we of course understood!) and let us know we were next up.

Communication all around was fantastic and above and beyond, and my friend and I were made to feel taken care of. Thank you L'Amico!

Dishonest service. we asked for tap water with meal. Charged $16 for bottled water when we clearly didn’t ask for it nor receive it. Sneaky excuse to try and charge us extra. I was with someone so didn’t make a scene, but it was dishonest and clearly intentional.
