Food excellent though pricey. Same for wine by the glass.
Though there is seemingly enough staff, the service felt a bit slow and quite impersonal.
First time patrons and iffy about returning.

Food and service were great, though the prices were unusually high for some pasta. It was nice to try but not sure I would return since there are other very good Italian restaurants in the neighborhood that are great and aren’t as expensive. But it was a nice evening.

The only problem was the outdoor part was not very well ventilated or open. It might have been safer eating inside. But swordfish with lentils was delicious! They also should ask before they remove the breadplate.

The food is excellent. The service is attentive, but it was slow; however, they were also very apologetic and gave us a nice dessert to make up for the delay. We will definitely go back and recommended it for anybody in the neighborhood.

Amateur level Italian food at haute cuisine prices. Thrown together tiny artichoke salad, overcooked & over sauced squid ink pasta, and overcooked branzino made for a particularly unpleasant experience when combined with high prices and a 3% recovery surcharge.

Lovely neighborhood spot. The menu was expansive with lots of great options. We were four and we all enjoyed every course. Service was attentive but not intrusive. The ambiance for an outdoor space was very comfortable. It was my BD so I had a sweet HBD rendition by the staff. We would absolutely return and recommend 😊

Unfortunately there was a large table of very happy young ladies right next to us in the outdoors structure and thanks to the very helpful maîtresse d hotel, we were able to move jjust before our first course. So the evening was saved and our conversation pleasant.

The food is terrible, overcooked, under seasoned, large portions being given to compensate for the awful quality. And the prices are stratospheric. In terms of value for money, a big zero.

Beautifully decorated outdoor tables, but not great for breakfast/brunch. Quite pricy for breakfast food that is not exactly great. Wish that I could have provided a more positive review since the staff were friendly. Perhaps would have had far more positive feedback if I'd visited for lunch or dinner.

Waiter ok but kitchen messed up. Waited over 45 minutes for food and then the pasta dish was uncooked!
This is second time I’ve experienced poor service
Price does not warrant such poor service

Great neighborhood spot. It being Carnegie Hill, the average age is 63 (putting aside the kids eating with parents). But with those 63 years comes an appreciation of a professional, well run kitchen and front of house, which for sure Vicolina is.
