About

This restaurant is permanently closed. L'Apicio is located at 13 E. 1st Street (between Bowery and 2nd Avenue). The Italian-inspired restaurant gets its name from the 18th century Italian cookbook, and brings Executive Chef Gabe Thompson's cravable modern Italian food to the East Village. L'Apicio offers a deep cocktail and wine program created by Beverage Director Joe Campanale, while Executive Pastry Chef Katherine Thompson oversees the pastry program. L'Apicio is open for dinner seven days a week and brunch on the weekends, featuring lounge and bar areas and outdoor seating, in addition to the main and private dining rooms.

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.

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.
