Great anniversary dinner! So many specials to choose from, and always great to go to a place that feels like a neighbors joint but also upscale.

Everything was a pleasure! The staff is warm and welcoming and the food was outstanding. This is very authentic— like a cozy restaurant in Rome, but tucked into a side street on the Upper East Side.

I went to Sandro's with three friends for a friend's birthday party. Three of us who shared a salad got extremely ill - two of whom are pregnant. We were up all night violently sick and I will spare you the details, but it was awful and one of the pregnant women ended up in the hospital.

Sandros is one of the best and authentic italian restaurants in NYC. Each dish was excellent. Wine list is as always very good. We enjoyed the evening. Staff is friendly. We had to wait for table approximately 30 mins but we were offered wine and cheese while we waited. Terrific dining experience.

A nice comfortable restaurant that offers great food when it comes to bold setting. The menu offers a limited number of selections in each section. But each section offers some unique selections. There is an extensive list of specials in each category, the length was quite surprising and we were Amazed by the waiters ability to recite all of them.
The food is high quality and well prepared. It's a bit pricey but still reasonable for the quality. They did not skimp on portions.

I have been several times and tonight was extremely disappointing. The swordfish paillard, a special at $42 (we found out only after receiving the bill) was so mushy, the texture was dreadful. The sea urchin ravioli didn't taste anything of sea urchin. We asked for ricotta cheesecake which they usually have but they didn't have it but recommended a pistachio cake ($14) that was supposed to be similar was nothing like a ricotta cheesecake. I wouldn't go back and wouldn't recommend it to anyone.

Without question, one of the best Italian restaurants in NYC. Food is delicious, service is solid, and the hospitality from the minute I walked in was amazing - as if I was a long lost friend coming for a visit.

Food was excellent, however we missed seeing Sandro greeting guests in the restaurant. Despite acoustic panels applied throughout, the noise level is quite loud.

We are older, experienced eaters who are looking for a spot
in New York for date night. We had a very pleasant waitstaff
who enjoy their work. Our food order was turned around
very quickly. We felt welcomed.

Disappointing food! The Cacio e Pepe hardly had any sauce to hold it together. The waiter was superb but the fact that I didn’t eat the Cacio e Pepe should have been noticed! The fried artichokes were dry and overdone! The Apple Cake was tasty...
