Great Food and Drink! A definitely a must try restaurant to Dine in! My expectation was met! :)
After loving L'Apicio for years, we went there last night and were sorely disappointed
I've been twice. The pasta dishes are incredibly over salted every time.
We were surprised that this beautiful venue was quiet on a Friday night - however this meant it was perfect for conversation and a relaxed evening. Once I'd tasted the food I was even more surprised the place wasn't packed out - everything we had was perfect. The kale salad and pastas in particular were outstanding.
My only complaint was that they didn't have one of the starters available - on a menu with only 12 dishes from top to bottom, everything should be available. Secondly, the service was a bit patchy, especially since the restaurant was empty. They accidentally brought someone else's mains to our table.
I'd definitely go back though, for the food and the atmosphere.
Went with high hopes but disappointed on every level. Placed at the back of the restaurant which was cold in temperature and atmosphere. Wines by the glass were expensive ($18+) and not particularly good. Food was uninspired but well cooked. Icecream at the end was the low point and summed the evening up. 3 balls, each smaller then a ping pong ball and full of ice.
Came here with a group of 9 friends on a Friday night. Food, drinks, service, music (lots of awesome 80s) were perfect. Would definitely be coming back and recommend to everyone.
I chose this based on menu and it was tagged as "cozy". Food and service were amazing but it was very loud.
Third time there and quality of food was way down from previous 2 visits. And, the place was very empty for a Th night in NYC. The service was exceptional tho.
amazing food, service was very slow and not very attentive but food and atmosphere made up for it. still one of my favorite restaurants in nyc
We will be back. We had a great meal at L'Apicio. Appetizers and entrees were great! Service was fantastic. Our waiter, Josh, was able to speak to all elements of the menu and helped us pick out a great wine. Anna & Lara were quite attentive & personable.
We had the tuna crudo, arancini, steak and cod and all were delicious.
After dinner we had a drink at the bar where the bartender, Davi, was just as personable.
I recommend and look forward to going back.
Food was great! Service was friendly and efficient! Delicious meal!
Very surprised that the restaurant was so dead on a Thursday night but the food was delicious and our waiter was fantastic!
Service was ok. But getting the bar to stop chatting like teens wud be great
L'Apicio was such a find - a nice East Village restaurant that could accommodate a large party on a Friday evening. No hassle getting a reservation, nice ambiance (maybe a little noisy if you're trying to have a conversation) and great food. The Brussels sprouts and arancini starters were especially good, and the pasta was fresh and perfectly portioned. The service was a teeny bit slow - we had to wait a bit to get bread and have our check picked up - but overall they were really great.
Amazing food! Incredible service! Great cocktails and wine list! Can't say enough great things about this restaurant! Love it! We had to skip dessert because we were so full! Next time we will have dessert first!
I rarely leave reviews but the last experience I had here was not really up to par with prior experiences. It was Valentine's Day and I wonder if the staffing situation was different because the food was cooked very differently from prior times. The olive oil cake dessert came on a dinner plate with messy blobs of whipped cream instead of "creme fraiche" or what was listed. Server was very abrupt and a bit rude. A quite baffling experience actually.
The housemade pasta dishes were delicious! Our server was personable and helpful in deciding on what to order. My parents were in town and enjoyed the dinner!
Best pasta I've had in the city in years. I'v had the pappardelle and the orecchiette
Our waiter literally could have cared less about what we ate, if we liked it, etc. It's not that he didn't know what we was doing, he just didn't give a you know what. POlenta is off the charts good (odd appetizer, more suitable as a side dish). Garlic bread is actually garlicky!
Bartender was soooo nice and funny while we waited
Just over charged me on my credit card:(
