The food was amazing and service great! We we’re sitting outside and it’s a very busy street.
We were pleasantly surprised. We found this place last minute on Yelp and it did not disappoint. The food was delicious and the serving size was perfect. The host made sure to accommodate our request of being seated in a larger table. The servers were all very attentive to us. Would come back!
Dined here on Friday night. I was a single and many restaurants don’t want singles because of the reduced seating mandate. They happily took me and were very kind and attentive to me. Dinner was great and not hurried. Beautiful ambiance. Highly recommended.
Food and service were outstanding! Highly recommend.
We had a great experience at Ulivo. There was a ravioli special with eggplant, truffle, and burrata, and it was one of the best dishes we had ever tasted. The fish roe pasta was delicious as well, and the texture and taste of the homemade pasta was perfect. Our server was extremely helpful with our ordering and was knowledgable on the menu and passionate about the food. Everything we had was delicious, and I'd definitely recommend trying the rum punch!
Great food, and wonderful accommodations for COVID. Would definitely go back
fantastic all around, will definitely be back to try more food options!
Hospitality here never misses a beat! Cant wait to dine inside
Always a pleasure. Great food, friendly staff and quality wine selection.
Get the Braised Oxtail Parpadelle, you won't regret it!! Love this place!
Miroslav was great! Manager stopped by to chat which was awesome. Will be here on work for the next 3 months and will be back!
It's tough to measure ambience when the only seating is outdoors, same with noise level. BUT...Ulivo is a lovely restaurant with fabulous food. Homemade pasta is always best. And save room for the tiramisu.
Amazing service even when eating on the sidewalk
Very nice Italian restaurant with native Italians serving you. They are very friendly and the food was amazing. Highly recommended for a romantic diner or just with friends!
Such a wonderful local Italian spot. Everyone is so friendly, low key, and professional. Nice wine list with many options at various price points. And, the food is fantastic.
Ulivo is a perfectly fine restaurant serving okay Italian dishes. The decor and ambiance are nice and comfortable, the service a little slipshod. But it's located in the now trendy NoMad neighborhood — and while we were there before 7 pm, at around 8:30 it was getting crowded.
This place was fantastic! The drinks were incredible, and the food was delicious. The servers, hosts, and bartender were all extremely friendly and welcoming. I would love to return for the authentic atmosphere alone. The food isn't the best italian food in NYC, but for the location especially I think this is a hidden gem. I would definitely come back and recommend it to a friend.
Service was abysmal, Italian server had a really poor attitude and our side dishes actually arrived after we had finished eating and the restaurant was empty so no excuse for this. 3 meals 3 glasses of wine and 2 sides $199 server decided to add his own tip on which we questioned and he actually got in my mothers face telling us this is new york! I know tipping is massive in USA but is to a persons digression as the menu stated compulsory for 6 people only 3 of us and he added over 20% tip which was not deserved due to his poor service.
I never write reviews for restaurants. Until now. Ulivo was an outstanding dining experience from start to finish. We arrived early and seated at the bar, which was exceptional. Antonio was the consummate bartender. Dinner was fantastic in all areas - service, ambiance, quality, pace. The atmosphere was friendly and relaxed. We lived in Europe for over four years and this experience reminded us of our time there, where we weren't hustled through the dinner and one could see quality and effort in every aspect of the experience. I look forward to many return trips.
Nice affordable Italian in a cool neighborhood. Wine list is a little limited, but otherwise good menu. Waitstaff is personable without being pushy. A solid goto for any casual occasion.
What an absolute gem in the heart of New York! Fabulous food and ambience
Amazing food and wine, with great service throughout!
The pasta was incredible and very reasonably priced. If you are looking for delicious Italian food near Penn Station then this is the place for you!
Had a great date night. Loved the food and the waiter was cool and friendly. Good spot
Great restaurant , food was superb, Ivan & Patricio our servers were very attentive and polite. Parking is difficult, but the parking lot across the street only charged $15.00 as we told him we were going to dinner here. Restaurant needs to put a larger sign or lit sign up for difficult to spot where it is. Noise is moderate, people friendly, food again was great. Prime rib eye and branzino were both perfect. Highly recommended.
Went with my friends. Delicious. Loved the cheese board.
Quality food and service. Great atmosphere for dinner with friends or romantic date.
Great service, excellent food, cute spot
Pretty mediocre food - many of the dishes came out cold and were bland
I was a little concerned when I first arrived because there were not many other customers (Granted we had a late lunch reservation). However, the service was attentive and the food was very yummy. I would go back.
This place was a great find for me. Their pastas are fresh and delicious. Their staff is courteous and attentive.
Food was very, very good. The Branzino was simple and utterly delicious. The pasta with tuna was fantastic. The cocktails were delicious
Pasta was delicious. Pizza could have been cooked longer as the dough wasn’t browned enough. All in all delicious.
I like this restaurant a lot. Everyone who works here is friendly. The waiter I had this last time was exceptional! Plus, the hostess is so nice and welcoming it makes the evening extra special. This is my go to place for a quick meal after work.
Once again , we weren’t disappointed!
We tried a few recommendations from our waiter Zhen , along with our favorites!
Zhen was correct. Delicious!
Can’t wait to return !
My wife and I took our two children (11 + 15 y.o.) here for a nice “new year” dinner. The food was excellent. Something for everybody. Everything was prepared beautifully, especially the fresh pasta, so good. Our server was super nice and warm without being too “on” or “off”. Just the right amount of friendliness and attention. And the rest of the staff that we encountered were the same. The atmosphere is perhaps a bit informal in comparison to the food and prices. It felt slightly cafeteria-ish. The kids thought it was cool. So nothing came even close to keeping us from going again, and we will, and soon! We had a very good dinner and time.
Booked for myself and my daughter early on New Year’s Eve. Service was good and friendly. Food was freshly prepared, and very tasty. My daughter did say that the tomato base on the pizza was a bit rich for her, but that’s not necessarily a criticism! The bill was reasonable too
What a wonderful restaurant with delicious food!
