    We are happy to have another Italian spot around the block. Food was good and good value. Annoying when they have an extensive wine list but no sommelier and the menu has no descriptions of the wine. Glass options were fine. Our rec : Cull down the wine list and have extensive descriptions - so clients can self select if your Somm is OOO that day, and / or if you are not able to provide help for a $200+ bottle etc. Otherwise everyone and the food is lovely so looking forward to heading back - but we will ask if the “wine guy” is in next time.

    Overjoyed that Sandro's is back. The new space open and airy, with a great brightly lit bar, amiable bartender John, and much of the old familiar staff. Opened only 10 days, we felt everything was running seamlessly. There are more tables, but they seemed less cramped than the old space, and we loved eating at the bar. The food is as good if not better - pear salad, spaghetti al limone of course a staple, and swordfish paillard now on the menu. It's a perfect meal. And not there are two spacious restrooms. The restaurant was packed, so obviously its return is celebrated by many of it's fans.

    Sandro’s is the best of the best of old and new NYC. We’ve been loyal and happy patrons for almost 20 years when Sandro himself would walk through the dining room and charm our kids as they are their favorite pasta limone or fettuccine Alfredo and crunched on their epic breadsticks. Every graduation, birthday, or family event led us back to the hit the spot delicious dining at Sandro’s. Now we meet friends here at the new location on 86th. Eat the grilled fish and vegetables and pastas and tiramisu and enjoy an aperol spritz! Thank you to the family owned family run familiar staff who always make us feel so welcome!

    The new restaurant is very inviting, I like the new location much better, the hostess was friendly as well as the waiter, the drinks took a long time to arrive and one was sent back for a re-do. The food was delicious we had eels sautee in oil and garlic - tender and flavorful, spaghettine al limone - portion was large enough to share and take some for next day lunch... and the cornish hen made crispy, lemoni and cooked to perfection....can't wait to go back

    Although the restaurant's decor, glasses and plates look a bit old, every dish we tried is simply great (can't think of anything wrong with them). The manager and the servers are all extremely professional, and they made sure everything is right. A waitress asked us if we are sharing the spaghetti and splited the dish into two plates for us in the kitchen. A well deserved 5/5. Thank you all for the great meal!

    Sandro’s is one of the best long standing Italian restaurant that stands out amongst the fray. It is loved by discerning local New Yorkers and have a high number of repeat customers. Their pastas are as good as any among Italy’s best, and their daily/seasonal specials make the dining experience fresh.

    I am so grateful that I chose Sandro's for a 4-year anniversary dinner with my partner. In the 2 years that we have lived in NYC, this was far and away the best dining experience we have had. Our waiter was kind, knowledgeable, and attentive. The atmosphere was intimate and upscale, without feeling stuffy. And of course, the food was outstanding, the best most authentic Italian food we've ever had. We will certainly be back for another dinner soon, and highly recommend to everyone!
