Over the years since Storico opened, the menu has varied and not always in a positive way. But the current menu is wonderful! The quality and presentation of each selection our party of three ordered was absolutely delicious! This definitely was the best meal we've had here. Don't change a thing. Also the waiter guided us to the perfect bottle of wine to go with our choices.

As a NY Historical Society member, I also have a good excuse to go to Storico for its excellent food and lovely ambience. This night, I had Chilean Sea Bass, not often seen on menus these days - cooked to perfection. My friend loves salmon, and he enjoyed his dish tremendously. Wine by the glass comes in 3 sizes. We thoroughly enjoyed the evening.

Storico is a restaurant where the server really takes the time for you and nothing is too much! My friend eats gluten free and is vegetarian, so we asked if we could get a gluten free pasta and it was no problem at all. The server said that the chef would make a fun gluten free pasta with various vegetables in it! I ordered the Duck Breast, which is very good - the cherry jus adds great flavour to the already very tasty duck. The room is beautiful and the service is attentive and very friendly. I wish I had know about this place earlier! I am definitely coming back!

We arrived at 11:30 for our reservatio. My friend ordered a soup to start which she received relatively quickly. However, we did not get our main course of two pasta until about 12:45. The server was not very apologetic about it. She simply said they were busy. The pasta was very salty as well. The dining room is very pretty and the restaurant well located. The food and service leave much to be desired

I took three young friends, two visiting from out of town, to Storico on a lovely Saturday night. We had a wonderful time. Our server was charming, informative and attentive, and the cocktails (orange margaritas) and food were great. The starting cheese platter, which we shared as an appetizer, was delicious, with very interesting accompanying condiments. We four shared two entrees - the risotto and the chicken - and loved both. For dessert we tried the cannolis and strawberry /cheesecake mousse. I’ll definitely go back.

Waiter disappeared after taking our order... he was stocking the bar and doing other jobs. With two other tables occupied, we had to snare him for more water. After 20 minutes and no food we called over another waiter who went to check, had a conference with the manager who said “ everything was cooked to order “... 10 minutes later our hamburgers were delivered. My friend medium was well done, my sauce did not make it “ on the side” and even though I had asked for NO SALT, the french fries were covered with it. Ambience lovely... food basically good. Ruined by the lack of concern. Perhaps if the waiter had written down our order we would have gotten it the right way. Too bad our experience was less than expected.

So disappointing! So overpriced! So mediocre! The wines are so overpriced as to make one's head spin. The pastas? With so many good Italian restaurants around, you have to be a little out of your mind to eat them here. Not so good. (Just so you know that I am not crazy: we chose Storico because we had come directly from the evening's lecture and it seemed "sensible" to eat close by.) Long story short: two beers, two pasta dishes, one appetizer, one espresso, and tip (the service, by the way, was outstanding) was just shy of $100. Not gonna get me again, Storico!

We came to the restaurant after a lecture at the museum. The place was freezing and it took 40 minutes to get the entrees. My entree (pasta with sausage and rock shrimp) was not good. The shrimp were dry and hard and obviously previously frozen and not true rock shrimp. When asked about how the dishes were I told the truth about mine. They took the dish off the bill (not my intention). However, on the positive side, my wife's dish (duck breast) was excellent.

Storico is an Italian restaurant, located in the New York Historical Society (although you don't have to have admission to the museum to use the restaurant). Although Italian, it has other items so I think all tastes can be satisfied. The menu has some interesting options and everything I have had there (have eaten there multiple times) has been well prepared and excellent. When full it is a bit noisy but conversation is still possible without shouting. Service was excellent. If you are in the NYHS by all means you should eat there.

This is one of my favorite restaurants on the upper west side. It is situated inside one of the city's most vibrant and compelling museums and hence the restaurant shares some of the atmosphere of intellectual density, but not in a pedantic way. The staff is cordial, attentive, but never overbearing. The physical setting is one of its loveliest features: soaring ceilings, graceful lighting, big windows. Puts everyone is a good mood. We took some friends who had never been to Storico and they were clear that they would be back. And so will we.

On the plus side, there is the charming room and the intriguing fact of eating inside the New York Historical Society. It is also commendable that it's a menu almost entirely without the clichés of high bourgeois Manhattan dining. The idea of small plates, the vague allusion to the cuisine of Venice (where one goes from bar to bar munching what are called cicchetti): very much worthy of praise. But the actual realization of things really failed to work on too many occasions. Great saor sauce but why put it on undercooked broccoli rabe; great idea to deep fry zucchini, but even after two tries they didn't seem to know how to do it. We wish this place were better than it now is; perhaps it will become so.

Lovely environment, my friends and I were actually able to talk and hear each other! Service was great and consistent from the MD to our server to support staff, they were professional, caring and hospitable.
The food on the other hand was disappointing. First we were served an amuse bouche that was way to small for three of us. Why not offer to each diner, it wasn’t that extravagant or expensive that they couldn’t (it was chickpeas in seasoned yogurt). The fried zucchini needed more seasoning and was inconsistent, some pieces tasted great while others were oily and tasteless. My Hamachi Tuna (is there such a fish?) was so bland, looked unappealing that I managed only to eat half portion.
I’d love to love Cafe Storico but based on the actual food experience, I’m not eager to try it again.
