SO Happy to go back to Sandro's for indoor dining. Well spaced diners, the best service, the best food. My perfect dinner is pear salad, grilled swordfish, and spaghetti al limone. Everyone at the table loved what was ordered, but was jealous of mine. One of our favorite places ever.

This restaurant is an absolute gem in the neighborhood! More people need to come here. The ambiance is perfect for either a quiet date night or a night out with a small group of friends.

The food is amazing...clean fresh tastes. The veal Milanese was excellent...reminded us of being in Milan. The bucatini Amatriciana was fabulous...made even more incredible with the recommended addition of the Calabrian chili oil, which was to die for.

David, our waiter was the kindest, most knowledgeable, and lovely human being...make sure to meet him! Thank you for the recommendations and for being such a pleasure!

My two colleagues and I celebrated our December birthdays at Sandro's. We made reservations for Wednesday, Dec. 9th at 6:00 p.m.. The table was ready upon our arrival and we were greeted with homemade bread sticks and a nice hot cup of lentil soup. We had the chicken liver and rice ball appetizers, which were excellent. For dinner, we ordered pastas. All 3 dishes were generous portions and delicious. We didn't have desert, but received a complimentary peach cordial and lemon cookies at the end of our meal. All the good reviews are well deserved. We'll be back!

Was blown away by everything at sandros. As close as you are going to get to Rome in NYC. Service was fantastic always there to help, but no feeling whatsoever that you are getting pushed out of there. Had the burrata and the pennette alla Francescana. Both were outstanding. Impressed with their wine list. Great selection of Italian wines. Will be coming back for many times!

Very nice dinner with well prepared food. Started with two of the specials: fennel and orange salad and lightly fried eggplant with spinach. Both were really good and the eggplant was surprisingly light. For entrees, we had the lemon pasta and the veal Milanese. Enjoyed the veal Milanese a bit more but both great. A bit on the pricier side but everything was fresh and the meal as a whole enjoyable. Would return again!

We ate at outside at Sandro's because of Covid and it was an exceptional experience. Servers were incredibly kind, they followed all Covid safety protocols, and the food was excellent. I can't wait to go back.

Went with my wife as we live in the UES. Greeted warmly by Host and though only back or front tables were available we were allowed to choose and it worked out fine. Food was fresh and tasty - we order a pasta and grilled prawns and Ceaser to start. Wine list is a little pricey for value but it is NYC. Overall vibe was mostly older with some families but it was a Sunday night. Only drawback is they have so many specials it was hard to follow with most variations of the current menu.

Would definitely recommend for food and service.
