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

Ridiculously expensive. Food was good …but man! I had a beet salad with grilled chicken for lunch , it was a whopping $32!!! I should have paid attention to the extra cost of $12 for the chicken!!! My husband had pasta with meat sauce. Neither of us got a drink ( just water). With tip, our lunch of a salad and a pasta was $77!!!

Though the food was good, don’t think we will return.

Vicolina is a welcome addition to the neighborhood, especially since the long-time neighborhood favorite that was directly across Madison Avenue moved East and changed format. Each of our party of four found the food to be very good: well prepared and well presented. The menu and specials were diverse and interesting.

The outstanding feature of the evening was the service. The front-of-house staff are pros. Responsive with great timing.

A knowledgeable wine person in our party found the wine list to be expensive across the range of quality red wines offered.

My only complaint is being seated in the very well-done pandemic outdoor sidewalk structure. Perhaps the best in the city, it still ruined the ambience. This would not have been the case had our expectations been set by being told in advance that that is were we would be seated.

We chose to eat indoors because it was drizzling and humid outdoors but their outdoor terrace was well protected and we would have been fine there. The indoor dining room was beautiful. We were there for lunch - I chose to have a brunch entree while my friend had chicken. We were both happy with our choices. We would certainly go back, but we are now aware that it’s fairly pricey.

We requested inside and they sat us outside. It was very hot. The service was very slow. The food was average and extremely overpriced. Then they had the gall to add Covid surcharge which is optional at most restaurants. Very disappointing.

Vicolina
Responded on July 1, 2021

We do our best to accommodate seating requests but cannot always give guests their first choice. A Covid recovery surcharge of up to 10% was introduced by the city as an option to help restaurants during the pandemic. The 3% charge is marked on our menus to avoid surprise and also appears on customer receipts. We apologize for your less than satisfactory experience, please do contact us - we would like to invite you back to Vicolina with $50 credit towards your next meal.
