We love Sandro’s! It is a perfect dining experience every single time. Lovely staff, delicious food, comfortable.
Excellent food and service. Best we had during this semi end of pandemic time
Wonderful dining experience
Sandro's is an authentic, family-run, Italian restaurant. Service is impeccable, and the food is always outstanding. Sandro's became an instant favorite us, and we feel as welcomed there as if we were family.
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!
Sandros is great because it is not trendy nyc dinning.
100% enthusiastic recommendation. The food was delicious.
What an amazing restaurant with truly authentic food! We had a great time and didn’t break the bank! The pasta was the best ever!
The food and the service were outstanding. The pasta dish, although simple, was amongst the best I have ever tasted. The owner (Sandro Jr.) was very much present. I only wish, like with other upscale restaurants, they had a more reasonably priced bottle of wine.
First time to this local UES Italian but won’t be the last. This is the kind of place neighborhoods are made of and we’ve all been missing. Food was excellent both menu items and specials. Staff was extremely accommodating and friendly. Can’t wait to go back !
My absolutely FAVORITE restaurant in NYC… exquisite cuisine, beautifully presented by an attentive, caring and efficient Staff… always a memorable experience !!
Great staff, food and service. Always a wonderful meal snd experience. Sandro (son) takes care of his patrons.
Great small restaurant on UES! Food was good and so was service!
We were meeting out-of-town friends - the staff was so kind and welcoming! Our get together so was relaxed and fun. And the food was PHENOMENAL!!

Attentive wait staff and very tasty food. Will definitely come back for another meal
Lovely dinner. Food delicious - homemade grissini, great pastas. Service fabulous - warm, knowledgeable, perfect timing, and some extras to make us feel special. Nice wine list. Could have a full conversation. White tablecloths, calm atmosphere. Perfect Upper East experience.
We love everything about Sandro’s! They treat us like we belong and it is always a lovely experience to dine with them!
Great food (and wine) in a great atmosphere at a great location.
Great old school Italian joint! Classic Roman food!
32 years ago my first fine dining experience in the most amazing Italian Restaurant was at Sandro’s. It was my 27th birthday and I was born on May 27th so in my mind it was a milestone…lol My husband took me by limousine and presented me with diamond earrings and we dined at a restaurant I would never forget… the fried ricotta cheese and lemon spaghetti were flavors I had never tasted before. Not long after a patient of mine Gael Greene a food critic for the New Yorker magazine was in my office and I mentioned the fantastic meal I had at Sandro’s She recalled her first visit there and said she also had to go back, which she did and wrote a second five star review… Well I found out by accident Sandro’s resurfaced on 81st a few years back and went last night. Calamari, branzino and homemade grissini breadsticks were perfection. Can’t wait to go back!!! GRAZIE GRAZIE GRAZIE SANDRO
Celebrating with friends
Consistently good food, good service and variety of daily specials.
Atmosphere. Food and service are outstanding
This is the typical old school Italian restaurant that recalls “old time “ NYC
Great attention to detail and patron requests
pasta very good. meat, chicken & veal chop uninspired.
Some of the best Italian on the Upper East side, and perhaps in the city generally. The cacio e Pepe was dreamy and I will absolutely be back to order it again.
Our waiter was so friendly and service was fantastic.
16 years at this location, so time for you to discover this small Italian restaurant
Great Resturant for any occasion!! Sandros stays true to its roots- A Roman Trattoria!
Lovely restaurant, great service, incredible food.
Excellent dinner, plentiful truffles on delicious pasta and asparagus;
Why haven't we eaten here before? It's our new favorite restaurant; for the appetizer, we shared suppli, a Roman version of arrancini, which was outstanding. Then we had the lemon pasta and the bucatini with guanciale, both of which were excellent. We can't wait to return to this incredible restaurant.
Great Find, right in my hood.
Food, service and ambiance truly amazing!
Cannot wait to return!
Outstanding from the start. A new top five favorite! Don’t miss it!
Our favorite NYC neighborhood restaurant! The food and the service is top notch!
Best food! Best service! This restaurant should be one of the best in NYC! We definitely will keep going there❤️
Superlative good. Incredible list of specials. Always our favorite place for special occasions.
Food was great
Always outstanding! A taste of Italy on the Upper East Side.
Started with a pear salad and fried ricotta and a nice bottle of red from their gently priced wine list. All yummy. Shared the rigatoni ragu and the famous Cacio e Pepe. Both tasty, but pasta was seriously al dente, actually undercooked. Meatball lacking. Best tartufo we ever had for dessert. Overall a solid 4.5, Will return, and requested another 2 min in the pot for the pasta.
