We enjoyed ourselves. The dining room is modern and attractive. Our waitress was very good. The food was fine, not very seasoned. Did enjoy the linguine and red clam sauce. That was our best dish. The panzanella and caesar salad were bland. There was live piano music which was enjoyable, but the singing was a little loud. They were very nice about making our anniversary special, complimentary glasses of sparkling wine and complimentary dessert. Overall a pleasant experience. Just not blown away by the food which is why I wouldn't recommend it to a friend. The cocktails were very good!

Amazing food, service and ambiance! Ryan and Abby provided us with great service and suggestions. You must try the Fritto Misto appetizer the lamb chops, Osso bucco, salmon or my favorite the filet mignon!!! Also, you must have a cocktail at their beautiful bar! We will definitely be back!

We celebrated our 6th wedding anniversary. The service was OUTSTANDING. From the flowers, champagne, dessert, a round or 2 of drinks, the whole staff was amazing.

Great service and food. We mentioned it was our first time visiting and they brought us champagne to toast. The server was very knowledgeable about the food and drink menus and brought us warm, fresh bread a couple times. We were not expecting a piano there and that made for a romantic, relaxing dinner.

The food and service were absolutely amazing. No one was wearing a mask on the inside restaurant and no social distancing. Scary. We requested to sit outside and as far away from people as we could. Restaurant was respectful of our COVID needs. Don't recommend the petri dish inside though.

My only real knock on Subito is that it's literally in the lobby of the hotel as well as a patio right outside. The noise level was medium. I prefer a more quiet atmosphere. The food was excellent and portions were decent.

Love this restaurant. Visited twice in the last six weeks. Not disappointed at all. The restaurant week menu was delicious. We took it a step further and ordered the steamed clams from the regular menu for an appetizer before the restaurant week menu offerings. It was delicious.
Our Server Serena was great and very attentive. The background music was wonderful. We were socially distanced and could hear very little noise and conversation around us. Definitely looking for an excuse to return soon!

I'm very sad to say, this was a real bummer for restaurant week. We went 9/28, the second night of RW. To begin we were seated on the indoor patio which was VERY loud. I had issues hearing our server and conversations at our own table. Our server, Brian, was very nice and attentive...and also very apologetic about the fact that Subito was out of two of the dishes we wanted. One was the Osso Bucco, not on the RW menu, the other was Canoli's, one of the two RW desserts...to which they did not make a replacement. Overall it was a bit underwhelming. Whamp Whamp.

This was a birthday celebration for a friend. There was 6 of us. The whole dining experience was very slow & And the during room was not busy & it was a Monday evening. We wanted to go up to the rooftop deck afterwards but could only go for one drink as the dinner turned into a 3 hour ordeal .We had to ask for drink refills & the server was just ok. Several things that we asked for (an example was my friend wanted salmon over pasta) they said they couldn’t do. Very disappointing as I have been there several times & we have had excellent service with Zack & Serena.

Subito has good food, but not great. The beef carpaccio needed salt, the Cacio e Pepe had too thin of noodles and the coffee ice cream was a let down. Our waiter was excellent but water should have been refilled more quickly, especially considering there were multiple water boys asking which of the three waters we would like. We also waited way too long for the dessert. The lobby however of this hotel is gorgeous, so I will be back but probably not to eat but to get drinks at the bar or the rooftop patio.

This was our first visit to Subito and it immediately became one of our favorite restaurants in Cincinnati. The food and service were impeccable! It's exciting to see regional homemade pasta dishes like Cacio e Pepe available locally. It's something I enjoy when I travel to Italy and Subito's version tasted like I was in Trastevere! A special thanks to Kyle Goebel for taking good care of us! It's customer service like yours that will guarantee our return! Thank you!

Really enjoyed this new gem in Cincinnati. I will say that I am a huge fan of live music and that definitely is what resulted in my ambiance score being a 5 star. They had a several piece live jazz group playing that was great. I had a special for dinner that was also superb. Our servers were very good. I do think they are working on a few kinks on the service side as a newer restaurant/staff. However, I still think service was much better than most restaurants. This was a business dinner with a client and we both greatly enjoyed it. Definitely a new place to try in Cincinnati. Excited to also experience the rooftop lounge of the hotel.

Beautiful ambiance and the best fine dining cuisine in all of Cincinnati! The pasta was made fresh that day and you could tell. I highly recommend the bolognese and carbonara. Simple dishes that are taken to the very next level. While you are at it, make sure to save room for the steaks - you can thank me later for the tip. From service, to speciality made cocktails, perfectly prepared meals and amazing ambiance... Subito is everything and so much more!

Beautiful upscale restaurant and bar with dramatic architecture, fabulous decor and lighting. Good and service were good. The only negative was the extremely loud and annoying piano player/singer that played constantly for the 2 1/2 hours we were there. Please turn down the volume so that we can have a conversation without yelling! The rooftop bar was beautiful and large with ample seating, fireplaces and a great view and ambience. We will return for the rooftop bar but not the restaurant/ lobby bar unless the piano player/ singer is eliminated or the sound is teduced

The Northern Italian offerings were what drew us to this menu. Our four course meal was delicious. Highly recommend any of the house made pastas and our medium rare sirloin was cooked to perfection (medium rare). The service provided by Matt was superb! Our compliments to the chef!
Will definitely be back!

Here once for drinks on the rooftop, saw the restaurant on our way out and decided we had to come back. Just like everyone else has mentioned, the ambiance/atmosphere is nice. The service great. The food unfortunately, was average for us.

We sat in the covered semi-outside area which was comfortable and looks out to the park and back into the city. It was Friday night so maybe should have been expected, but it was extremely loud. But overall nice.

The food though. The lamb chops were probably the best thing we had however it was a very small portion. The filet was quality but not much flavor. We also had the jump shrimp as an appetizer. Not fresh at all and you can judge the value for yourself from the picture.

Will go back from drinks and to take in the atmosphere both downstairs and on the roof but will do that before or after dinner somewhere else.

The noise level overwhelmed the food and the service. Dooley at every table were shouting at each other to be heard. We sat on the enclosed terrace and the sound reverberated. The pianist/ vocalist was miked through to the terrace and the volume was deafening. In addition for some reason the noise from the bar and interior dining room also came through the sound system. It spoiled what would have been a very enjoyable dinner.

Beautiful atmosphere and very attentive service by every staff member. The rooftop bar is one of, if not the best, in Cincinnati. Service, cleanliness, wine/cocktails were all top notch. The food was good, it just wasn’t over the top or wow like everything else we experienced. There is tough competition in the Italian food scene in Cincinnati, and as foodies, the food just wasn’t superior to other places we also enjoy.

Staff was very kind and accommodating. Bar seemed to be backed up while we were eating dinner and had to wait a while for our order. Some of the seafood was not very fresh and pasta dishes lacked flavor. Steak was fantastic, highly recommend the filet. Dining space by the entrance to the kitchen was a bit dark - would have preferred to sit in the other area with the big windows.

I could not recommend Vista and Subito more!! We had our anniversary dinner at Subito, and enjoyed drinks at Vista beforehand. We did have to wait a while for food at both places, but our service was beyond exceptional. Abigail made us feel like royalty, and my boyfriend and I had the best dinner experience of our lives. We felt as though we were on a little getaway yet with the beautiful views of Cincy. The ambience was breathtaking, service kind, attentive, and professional, and the food was absolutely delicious! We absolutely will be back, and hopefully stay the night at the hotel! Thank you so much, Lytle Park Hotel!
