    Met friends for dinner and enjoyed the live music and conversation. Our food was outstanding - the only reason I couldn’t give 5 stars is due to the cocktails - we ordered the 2 Mabel Manhattan and 2 basil hayden Manhattan which all arrived not cold … it’s like the bartender didn’t even stir with the ice or in a chilled container - took at least 5 minutes to get to an enjoyable state of coldness. If you’re gonna charge top shelf prices please give me a cold cocktail

    Delicious food. Very hard to have a conversation with acoustics of room while piano and singer performing. Waiter/Guest couldn't hear each other and desired doggy bag didn't happen, so no leftovers of 2 meals.

    My husband and I shared the calamari which was delicious. He had the bolognese, I had the short rib campanelle. We were both impressed with the food, ambiance and service and look forward to returning.

    Food was good just too pricey for what it is. Our server was very nice and attentive. Crowd was a bit stiff (we usually sit at the bar but sat at a table). Worth the trip once if you're in the mood to spend more than usual. Probably won't go back as you can better bang for your buck elsewhere in the city.

    My wife ordered the short ribs and the entree did not look appetizing at all. It was replaced by the shrimp linguine which was fine. I had the pork chop and it was delicious.

    We took our daughter to Subito for her 16th birthday, and it did not disappoint. Our server Gina was fantastic, the vibe was excellent, and the food was delicious. The whole ambiance is set due to the Lytle Place Hotel, which I had never even been to before, but it set the scene for the restaurant as soon as you walked in. My daughter was given a complimentary ‘mocktail’ for her birthday and the food was so good! We sat on the patio area with plenty of views of Lytle Place which was beautiful. Also, the live piano player was amazing, playing his own renditions of anything from Stevie Wonder to Garth Brooks to Frank Sanatra. Great place, and even though we were there for a 16th birthday, it would be a great place for a date night… And top of it all, the prices are not so high that your wallet is empty when you walk out the door.

    We came to Subito to celebrate our friends engagement and we had an absolutely amazing time! The food was fabulous. We started with the charcuterie board and all got various pasta dishes and every single dish was delicious. However, the highlight of our evening was the the service. The staff were very friendly and welcoming and our waitress Gina was incredible, she made our celebration special and took amazing care of us. I would highly recommend Subito and I look forward to dining there again.

    We had such a wonderful experience at Subito, for our Valentine's Day celebration. The ambience was quiet and romantic and we enjoyed hearing the piano while we dined. What really set this experience apart was our server, Gina. To say that she went above and beyond is an understatement. She was attentive and very personable, handling every request with a smile. We celebrated with complimentary strawberries and a champagne toast as well as a hand-written thank you and other niceties. For the perfect date-night and a next level dining experience, ask for Gina at Subito!

    The food was nice and the server was good. A tad bit little pricey but justifiable. The bottle of wine was real good. Honey Pizza and the olive oil dip👌🏽 The steak and bucatini 👌🏽. The lamb chops were so so. Desserts.. One good one bad. I took my wife for her birthdays and they didn't greet and say happy birthday to her which was real odd. Forget about a birthday gesture/dessert but a simple wish could have gone a long way. A rather embarassing for me.

    Overall, the food at Subito was very goodand the service was excellent. They were already out of some menu items by 6:45 PM. The restaurant was very cold. We needed shawls and coats despite sitting next to the fireplace. There is no parking other than very expensive valet parking. The valet was nowhere to be found when we finished our meal. Keys were stored in an unsecured drawer at the valet stand. Wait to come here until warmer weather when the restaurant is warmer and you can park on the street and walk to avoid the valet.

    WOW! We chose Subito for its New Year’s Eve Italian Special 5 Course Dinner. SPECIAL it most DEFINITELY was! It was reasonably priced, beautifully and flavorfully prepared, graciously served, 60% Italian, ALL COURSES DELICIOUS +++, the BRAISED LAMB CAMPANELLE was Simply TO DIE FOR, easily the BEST part of the meal. Recently becoming a FOSSIL, Essex can no longer eat as prodigiously as a Yute, so we were able to take home full servings of 3 of the 5 courses, butt saw 100% Clean Plates on the tables of the younger diners enjoying their evening. NO complaints, it’s a 2nd feast for us tonite 😋. We adore Subito, it’s always 6 or more stars ⭐️ on a 1-5 scale. Authentic; Romantic; Unique. GO. You will not be disappointed!

    We had a lovely evening at Subito. The food was very good and service was fine but a little slow -- waited a little too long to order and for food to come. But the ambience was wonderful. Christmas decorations added to the usual comfortably elegant surroundings. We really enjoy dining at Subito!

    My wife and I celebrated our anniversary here at Lytle Park and Subito. After a slightly awkward seating we were warmly greeted (I had noted our Anniversary on Open table it was acknowledged by the hostess and our waitress.) We ordered the calamari appetizer, salads and an entrée each. A bread basket came with some fresh tasting, crusty bread, a very good Italian style crunchy breadstick and a ramekin of drawn butter with anchovy and another ramekin of balsamic vinegar blended butter. The Calamari was excellent. Flash fried in a light, crunchy batter with some peppers and onions flash fried in it as well. The calamari was perfectly seasoned and served with a pepperoncini aioli that was awesome and a tomato sauce that tasted like an aluminum can. My wife ordered the Caesar salad which was an extremely basic salad. She commented that the greens were very bitter. I ordered the roasted carrot salad and found it to be very good. The carrots were tender crisp and the dressing and accoutrements perfectly balanced the plate. My wife ordered the Chicken Saltimboca which was a large chicken breast cooked with sage and prosciutto served with (overcooked) pasta. Nothing particularly bad about the dish but the beauty of traditional Saltimboca are the small, tender chicken cutlets cooked quickly. It doesn't quite translate as well with a large, dry chicken breast. I had the lamb shank which is a very generously portioned dish and comes served over a pea risotto and covered with a cherry wine reduction and fried shallots. The veal was very tender and moist and the reduction was a perfect compliment that tied the lamb and risotto together well. They brought us a complimentary toast (noting that we don't drink alcohol and brought a very good sparkling juice.) and finished the meal with a complimentary plate of chocolate covered strawberries garnished with raspberry and chocolate sauce. A fine experience if not at the level of culinary refinement of Sotto or Via Vite.
