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!

Have always enjoyed my meals at L’Amico but this time not so much. Pasta was bland and steak luke warm. Service wasn’t great and was served warm wine. Everybody has an off night so will still go back.

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.

I did not have a pleasant experience at l’amico. My friends and I made reservations there to celebrate a 41st birthday.The hostess told me that indoor dining was not available when it was indeed available. I checked on opentable to see if she was being honest. Unfortunately I found out that the hostess lied and then when I called her out on it, she said that there was an issue with the tablet that displayed the available tables. I’ve come to the conclusion that she didn’t want me sitting inside the restaurant because my friends and I are black and brown men.

Food was absolutely fantastic. We’ve dined here about 10 times before, but this was our 1st post-pandemic visit. & we were super impressed by the quality. Service by our waiter was great. But we had 2pm reservations & by 3pm they were calling ‘last call’ without asking if we wanted coffee or dessert. Our original server’s shift was over so that’s not his fault - just a faulty handover. BUT what happened when we left was really awful. Paid our tab, husband walked outside to wait for me while I visited the restroom. On my way out the door the manager (who checked us in & was now sitting at the bar) jumped up & literally accosted me saying ‘the restaurant is CLOSED! ‘. I was only trying to leave. How was I supposed to know that the door we entered through was not the PREFERRED door to leave? He was so unnecessarily aggressive & he startled me & it was embarrassing.

This is hands down my favorite restaurant in NYC... from brunch to dinner, the food is top notch. Ingredients are always fresh, service is always delightful, and the ambiance is pleasant too. Would take my parents, best friends, everyone to L’Amico. Also Alex, the bartender, is awesome!!! Here are some photos from brunch :)

Perfect experience, good food , very different from a usual American brunch , service was great , the hostess even accommodated our request and moved us indoor as my friend was pregnant and she couldn’t tolerate the heat outdoors .
Overall we had a great experience.

What a bright spot on a dreary afternoon!!! Some friends and I decided to run out for brunch in the rain. The meal was incredible- as were the drinks. We feasted on endive salad, whipped ricotta and warm bread, branzino, pizza, and lemon ricotta pancakes! Our waiter was spectacular- and the whole experience remarkable! I highly recommend!

We went on a Sunday, midday for brunch. The food was very good and well-presented. The service was a bit slow and at times, we could not find our waitstaff. The noise level was low and very conducive for conversation.

Food is excellent but drinks are exceptionally small for the money.
Sat outside which has a great setup but due to no fault of their own was an extremely warm evening and we could have used fans.
Will definitely be back.

This was my first time dining at L'Amico, but it definitely won't be my last. Everything was outstanding--the food, the service, the ambiance. I had been told the roast chicken was not to be missed (and it wasn't), but the same could have been said of everything our group ordered, from appetizers through desserts.

I had an indoor reservation and the hostess tried to sit me half outside on a cold, windy night and then inside, the service wasn’t very good and the pizza we ordered wasn’t great either

I was surprised, because my only other time at this place was a very positive experience and that’s why I returned
