    Subito has been on my list for months and we finally made it tonight. Sadly, it was just meh. The bread was dry, the butter had no flavor, the carbonara needed a lot of salt and maybe just a bit of spice (it was pretty bland), my husband's swordfish was well cooked but swimming in some sort of sweet and sour sauce that was almost impossible to choke down. The wine list by the glass is marginal at best. The server was lovely and none of this was her fault, but she was the only thing that stood out. Overall it was fair. Not good, not bad, but not worth a return.

    Subito needs to figure whether they want to be fine dining or a hotel restaurant. The service was adequate not fine dining level. They brought the food in a timely fashion although entree was a little more time after the first course than expected. Oysters were excellent and the large shrimp were good but not excellent. My wife loves Carbonara but this one left a lot to be desired. I tasted it and it was actually dry not creamy like expected after adding egg. The swordfish was tasty and cooked well but nothing special. It was probably a better hotel restaurant but certainly not a BOCA or Sotto.

    The food wasn’t great at all. Scallops served raw. Pizza still doughy. Ordered the pasta when I sent my scallops back and it took them 45 mins to bring out (they weren’t busy by the way) and the pasta was still crunchy because it wasn’t cooked all the way. Don’t recommend.

    Subito never disappoints. Everything was fantastic. The Hostess was welcoming. The food runners were friendly and sweet. Kia was expert at her suggestions and her vibe for realizing we were in no hurry. Just an outstanding menu...(we do visit on non restaurant weeks) but love any excuse to dine.

    My wife and I had never been to this restaurant so we tried it for our wedding anniversary. Overall, the setting is quite pleasant and the restaurant physically interesting and comfortable. We were given complimentary champagne cocktails and a lovely fruit desert that was unexpected and delightful. We ordered a bottle of wine after tasting a couple of bar varieties. We got a Pinot Grigio that was only of marginal quality. Our waitress said that they had no other brands of Pinot Grigio available (although there were 3 or 4 on the wine list), surprising for an Italian restaurant The customer-facing staff was a mixed bag- some very professional and attentive, others not so much. The food was generally good but not exceptional. The best item was a tempura-type seafood appetizer that was great. There is an open-air bar at the top of the building, not affiliated with the restaurant. After our dinner with a late reservation, we went to see it. It began to fill up as we left around 10 PM. Very pleasant with a nice view of the city. Overall, we thought it was a decent value but wouldn't put it at the top of the list to return to soon.

    Service was excellent! Drinks and apps were good. The pork belly peach pizza was Ok- pork belly was overcooked. We’ve never sent a dish back, but the sauce on the pasta made it inedible. Thinking something went bad in the kitchen that was added to it. 50/50 overall!

    Subito exceeded our expectations (and we’d heard many good things, so expectations were high!). Ryan took excellent care of us on our anniversary date night. Highly recommend the Mabel’s Manhattan cocktail, the oysters, and the saltimbocca.

    The food was very good. The dining room atmosphere was nice. The enclosed porch area looked a little more casual versus upscale feel inside. The service was good, but could have been just a little more attentive . It has the feel of an upscale restaurant, but server did not clean crumbs off the table. Other than that, very nice. I recommend ricotta appetizer, bolognese and the seafood ravioli. They offer adding a seared scallop and that was a plus as well. The cannolis were large and come with two on the plate.

    We chose to go to brunch for our Anniversary. Angela at the front desk went out of her way to make sure we had a special table and upgraded our location on the enclosed porch. Our waiter was able to narrow down what we might like from the menu and was very knowledgeable about it. Because it is an Italian restaurant we tried the Saltamboca. Delicious on the angel hair pasta with marsala twist. The extra anchovies that we ordered were white and also a nice addition. Had a really great and relaxed time. Will recommend to family and friends.

    The pizza was decent. The pasta was absolute trash. My table ordered three pasta dishes and all were bad. I never salt my food after served and I had to this time and I couldn’t eat it. It was really bad. I never leave reviews but I feel like I have to. I had eaten at Súbito many times for breakfast while we stayed at hotel and it was perfect. I had high hopes for lunch. But no. Pizza 7/10 and pasta dishes (caccio e peppe and saltimboca) 1/10.

    We always enjoy eating at Subito. Tasty food ,great ambience and very good service.The porch area sometimes closed and sometimes open and the outside patio are our favorite seatings for breakfast and lunch. Worth a trip from wherever you live The taft Museum across the street is worth a visit too. When we eat at Subito we feel like we are in NYC,but safer .

    Food and service were both wonderful. Out table was in a lovely glass-walled room, but our friends had to squint at us for the first hour because there was no shading on the windows, and the setting sun was directly in their faces. Just a little something to think about. On the whole, a really good experience and we’ll be back.

    Subito experience was incredible! We wanted a nice dinner to celebrate my birthday, but weren’t expecting anything special from the restaurant. Not only we’re we greeted with two free half-glasses of sparkling wine, but we also unexpectedly received a plate of chocolate strawberries at the end of the meal on the house! Our meal itself was phenomenal, everything was paced well, and our service was attentive. We’ll be back!
