Pizza was tasteless and hard as a rock! Even the sharp knife provided did not help. You had to saw at it. We each had a pizza so this was not just one that was a problem. It was so hard to chew and they are stingy with the cheese so its mostly inedible crust. But worse, the pizzas and my main veal chop were all utterly tasteless. Very disappointed. Also note the blood orange dessert is awful: a few crumbles of orange ice on top of an orange filled with tasteless gooey cream!

If you want great food, go! Really terrific. Service is good but a little busy. Table are. very close to each other, so no privacy whatsoever. But buzzing and busy for lunch. Seemed like a mixture of high end tourists and local higher end lunch crowd.

Amazing good comfort food; brick-oven pizza, warm salad, smoke-grilled calamari in a fun ambiance, quick service with a smile and overall solid experience. Will definitely be back!

My new favorite place for midtown/pre-MSG event! What a beautiful restaurant and ambiance, service was top notch and all class. And the food was fantastic (the grilled octopus!). My bourbon old-fashioned cocktails were perfect. Manager was hands-on, checking with each table. Just top notch on every level! My dinner companion had a neighboring table pick up his bill (in Miami weeks earlier), so when we had a nice moment with the table next to us, my buddy sought out the manager to "pay it forward" and pay for their meal. The manager commended us and said he'd pick up their dessert if they order one. That's a classy move! I'll be back there many, many times. Likely before every Ranger game and concert!

The food and waiter were exceptional, but the hostess was totally incompetent. They had no idea how to manage the tables. We obviously had a reservation and when we showed up there was no table and we waited for 20 min. If we had just walked up that’s no problem, but we were confirmed with a reservation and didn’t have our seats reserved. She had no idea how to accommodate us and gave a table to non-reservation people that she oddly enough promised to us 2 min before she sat them at said table. I get it it’s crazy and a hard job to plan all that out but it was ridiculous when she tried to put us next to the kitchen door and then we settled at one next to the busboy staging table. Not angry, just disappointed

This was a great place ti have dinner with a small group of friends. the cocktails and drinks are nice and the food is really delicious and a solid mix of you normal spaghetti and meatballs Italian and more interesting Italian fare. Everything we ate was solid and the ambiance is very fun and warm. The only downside was the sometimes slow service.

Brandon was the absolute BEST waiter. He made the best suggestions when we couldn’t decide. The food was phenomenal, as were the drinks. We showed up extremely early and were still able to be seated right away.

The food was excellent, but you had to chose carefully to get the best dishes. We had the burrata with truffles, Brussel sprout salad with hazelnut and cipolini, and mortadella and veal meatballs. Yum! All delicious. We enjoyed it a good Nero d’Avola and finished with Nonna’s chocolate cake which too was very good.

They did not have enough servers, unfortunately, so service suffered. And everything was very overpriced.

Good experience but will likely not return.

Food and service great from start to finish. Portion sizes were more than adequate. The octopus appetizer was delicious, with ample amount of octopus, as was the sausage pasta. The server was knowledgeable about the dishes and quite attentive. We had the two flavor gelato dessert that was tasty and just the right finish. Everybody was friendly and helpful. I’d go back again

Been here before and it was much better. I know it was Valentines Day which is amateur night but they jammed many tables together within inches of each other. Money grab. And the service was terrible. Also, the supposed entertainment of a jazz band took over an hour break right in the middle of the evening. On top of all that, the limited fixed menu was significantly marked up from normal menu prices.

I have been to L'Amico many times with friends and business associates. Up until this most recent visit, I have been impressed with the food and the space. This trip was very different, and therefore, worthy of note. I ordered the roast chicken entree, usually delicious. It was dry and burnt on one side. The bed of broccoli rabe upon which the chicken sat was burnt to a crisp and inedible. Coffee was served cold, but the wait staff was quick to replace it with a steaming cup. The noise level was deafening. My dinner companion seemed happy with her meal, so calling over the wait staff to complain about the food and having to shout to be heard over the noise was not worth it. I left as quickly as was seemly, vowing never to return. Shame, I had really liked it. I had filled out the comment card at the restaurant and I can only assume that management read it right away, as I received at least three frantic calls to my cell from the restaurant that night, but I was too annoyed to answer the calls. At least they take the comment cards seriously.

After two years I visited L’Amico again. Price is not bad. Tastes good. But each table is too close so noisy a bit.
