    Nice room but our fish was over cooked and dry. Service was chaotic, kind of slow and they added $20 to my tip after the fact. Had to go back next day to resolve. At $315 for 2 people they have to do much better. Il Carino on 2nd (E. 88th) much better value.

    Too expensive. Service mediocre at best. For what they charge, service should be impeccable; having to ask 3 times for water is hardly impeccable service. Least expensive wine was $20/glass. Appetizer came; no one asked if I would like cheese or fresh pepper; I had to ask. That is unacceptable for that caliber restaurant. Calamari was tough and chewy. Pasta dish was drenched in sauce; finally, coffee was watery. Disappointing meal.

    Food was excellent: I had the mushroom risotto and my friend had the special pasta which was fettuccine with sun-dried tomatoes. Wine selections by the glass were good. The only thing that could have been better was the attentiveness of the head waiter. We were sitting in the cabana outside and he was standing facing the street with his back to us so it took some time to get his attention without out yelling. Will definitely be back.

    Good, overly priced pasta. They did not bring Parmesan cheese for my friend’s gnocchi sorrentina. They didn’t need to for my pasta though because I had linguine with clams. The breadsticks were very good but we had to ask for bread. My sauv blanc was not good and it was $20 per glass. Ambience is very nice and quiet.

    My friend and I were hoping for an early dinner. We were the first table and we ordered an appetizer and two salads. We were snubbed and did not get our appetizer for at least 45 min. and then waited another 45 min for our salads. They were obviously annoyed that we did not order more food. Had the salads come sooner I was thinking of ordering a main course but did not due to the poor service. Other people were seated and served and received their bills while we were waiting. They told us they had a problem in the kitchen which was obviously not true as other diners seemed to be able to be served in a timely manner. One positive note is that they did not charge us for a second cocktail. This is no way to run a restaurant.

    Excellent food, drinks, and service. I highly recommend eating here for lunch, a date night or special occasion. Matilda planned my son’s first communion brunch perfectly, and at the very last minute as our other plans fell through. All of our guests loved the experience. Everything was perfect. This is one of the best spots in the neighborhood. I highly recommend.

    Food was very good...but menu was just same old standards. Service was terrible Never knew who our waiter was...had to ask busboy for the check while the "manager" ate his dinner. At extremely high prices, one should expect, at least, a modicum of attentive service.

    Excellent lunch. Good service my only complaint was that sone of us wanted brunch at 1230 which is not late and couldn’t get it but then others around it s got it and we’re seated later. But the lunch I had was good great fish salad and chicken and sausage

    We arrived for our reservation and were ignored by 4 different service personnel for 5 minutes. Most ignored us altogether. Two said "I will be with you in a minute" but then did not help us. The restaurant was not that busy and it is expensive enough that they should provide a better reception.
