The food was good not great, typical Mario Batille restaurant very contrived. View was nice, pretty restaurant, works if you are at the trade center. A bit of a tourist trap. Nice bar and ambiance.

Noise level almost intolerable. Very difficult to hear people at own table.
Restaurant clean and nice; BUT women's bathroom extremely messy and dirty. Inspection chart had been checked off every hour, but the floor was littered, the toilets were dirty, and the sinks had hair and pieces of tissue all over them. Inspection without cleanup means nothing!!!

Ordering the steak from the restaurant week menu will give you 4 slices of steak. already sliced and therefore dried out a bit. Everything else was wonderful!

I expected much more. The quality of the food was just ok. We ordered the lunch special for restaurant week. The bread sucked and was cold including the focaccia. That was really a downer for me. I expect hot delicious bread. It’s a thing for me when I eat pasta. I ordered the gnocchi in red sauce and my friend had the pasta with pesto sauce. Two glasses of wine were $48 bucks. They weren’t even full glasses of wine! The salad appetizer was better than the burrata appetizer which was literally a slice of mozzarella. The tiramisu dessert was very good and the best part of our meal. So overall, the food was good, wine over priced,( same price as the meal) no hot bread and grind your own fresh black pepper ugh! I wasn’t blown away, but I didn’t hate it either.

Food was very delicious. I had the ziti. My complaint stems from the fact that even though the restaurant was half empty during our reservation time (with many open tables by the views), they scuttled my preteen daughter and I all the way to the dark back corner. While I understand they may not usually serve younger clients [hence the absence of a kid menu :)], I had hoped to make this special since it was her birthday dinner.

The restaurant is located at the very end of Eataly so it was a bit hard to find. I was pleasantly surprised to find a very nice Restaurant Week menu. The choices were excellent. The service was very attentive but not hovering.

I usually love all things Eataly. I live near the Flatiron location and it is a go to place. Also ate at the 4 WTC location last month at Vino e Grano and it was fantastic. But this one was the worst. Bad service and super small portions and being charged for bread. I will not go back.

Party of six, appetizers were ok however entrees were disappointing. My dish was a simple asparagus pasta dish that was extremely dry with a lack of freshness (this was supposed to be freshly made). This was very disappointing meal because I have been to Eataly flatiron and the food has never disappointed me.Everyone in our party was not pleased with entrees , they either lacked flavor or seemed dry and cold .Will not go back to this particular Eataly!

Having been to this restaurant before, we were looking forward to a nice dinner. It didn't happen. The place is the same but it appears the staff has changed completely and for the worse. Service was spotty at best with what appeared to be only one competent waiter working the entire room. But it was the food that disappointed the most. Even though we were early and the room was practically empty, I was informed that my choice for appetizer, the ravioli, was not available (while just a few steps outside the front entrance is the Eataly food court stuffed with such items, go figure). So, I changed to the gnocchi in three sauces. I received a lump of over cooked gnocchi and, try as I did, could not distinguish the three sauces, it was a mess. I then order the veal saltimbocca for my entree. Something arrived that was far from what this dish is supposed to be and terrible. Two grey slabs of (I think it was) veal, not pounded thin and very tough to chew, were smothered in a very over salty prosciutto. No 'surprise' here, it was just piled on top of the veal (?) with a few sage leaves between. To make matters worse, the entire plate was swimming in a watery sauce (more water than sauce). We will not be returning to this place any time soon. Eat at Eataly's general food court, you'll do much better at a far more reasonable cost.

So disappointed in the Lobster Risotto. You needed a microscope to find the lobster. My husband's Saltambucca was delicious though. Very noisy, there are better choices in this area for restaurants especially at this expense.

I never got my dinner. I waited 55 minutes for a pasta, then I left. I acknowledge that the manager tried to compensate this by not letting me pay for a glass of wine and a carpaccio. This was a decent gesture of her.

We have been here a few times and keep wondering why we go back. The food is hit or miss and on this occasion it was very bland. I ordered the same thing as the table next to me, only when they complained they got a ton of free stuff and the attention of the manager as they are some sort of reviewer or corporate partner. Our waiter was so busy running around after them we were completely ignored.

The overall experience is expensive given what I got out of it. I keep going back out of convenience, but there are much better Italian restaurants in the area I should think of next time.

After cutting through the bazaar we got to the osteria and found a largely empty dining area. Our table by the south window offered a nearby streetscape view and the 9-11 memorial and Brookfield Place across the room. Servers organized drinks and food promptly. Before antipasti was over, we were besieged by tables with small unruly children: a family with four little ones lined up on the corner banquette right next to us, and a toddler knocking dishes around at the other corner. No apologies from the house, no attempts to keep a lid on the commotion. We got through our pastas that were quite lovely and left after twice declining coffee and desserts and straining to get attention to get the check.

In all honesty, I would not consider ever returning for dinner again, as it felt more a tourist gambit.

We arrived for our reservation at 6pm. After ordering wine we ordered our main dishes. My wife ordered an asparagus pasta & I the eggplant parm (no pasta). The food duly arrived, with both of us being served eggplant. When my wife told them about the mistake, the server returned saying that they were experiencing an intermittent gas service interruption & would not be able to offer pasta dishes. Would she like something without pasta. All they could manage to find were two appetizers (Burrata & Gran Tagliere). We were told that they would not charge us more than the cost of the ordered entree ($24). The appetizers should have bee $56. The burrata was as advertised, but the Tagliere, far from the promised "epic selection" was just several slices of prosciutto on a board. This did not constitute a meal! They asked us if we wanted to order dessert. We declined. Despite this, they served us what I assume was a little gelato, which we enjoyed. When it came time for the check, we were told by the manager that they had reduced the price of the appetizers to cost the same as the original entree and had taken the dessert off the bill (!)

Whether or not this was handled appropriately I'll let the reader decide. The server said that the gas had off and on been a problem since before he had come to work. I suggested that the front of house should probably have warned us when we arrived. He was under the impression that this was supposed to be the case. I'm pretty sure that if an Italian restaurant was possibly unable to provide pasta or anything else requiring gas we would have gone elsewhere.

I would expect a lobster risotto to be better presented, it was just a sloppy mess. Taste was ok but not enough lobster for the price to make it special in anyway.
