    This was a great find in our neighborhood. The service was excellent. Our waiter, Lati, was especially attentive. The outside table was a great place for an evening dinner. Fairly priced, nice wine selection. We will be back. Five stars all around.

    Excellent service and delicious pasta in a gem of a restaurant tucked away next to a Hyatt. Great atmosphere and a sweet little outside courtyard…well worth a visit if you are looking for quality Italian food near Grand Central and Bryant Park.

    Amazing service and food, however the restaurant was inundated with drain flies or fruit flies. It was very uncomfortable for our party and unfortunately put a damper on our experience. Besides that, it was fantastic!

    The staff put some thought into the prep for our party of 9 with two different venues to choose…classy. The service was attentive and subtle. The food and wine were top-shelf…everyone was impressed, especially the host. Put Ramerino on your A-list.

    Ramerino is a hidden gem. The head Chef is from Florence, Italy, and the quality and authenticity of the food is proof. The ambiance at the restaurant is comfortable and quiet, perfect for a nice date or a family dinner out. The food is outstanding - nothing pretentious here, just delicious Italian food featuring handmade pasta, fresh seafood, and deliciously flavorful sauces. We had the seafood squid ink linguine, cacio e pepe and linguine vongole as mains, starting with the eggplant parmigiana, steak tartare and meatballs. Everything was outstanding. I would also try the traditional florentine steak for two - very few places in NYC make it properly. The desserts were another level. Homemade cheesecake, apple tart with pistachio ice cream, panna cotta and tiramisu were all fantastic. The chef’s take on Italian staples and more American-Italian desserts were full of flavor and wonderful texture. The staff made the experience even more lovely. The hostess was very accommodating of the four of us and our dog, seating us on their interior patio, and our waiter Jon (seriously ask for him) was a delight, taking care of our every need, making the perfect recommendations, even bringing our dog water. Come here if you want great, very affordable food that is authentic but also comforting and familiar. Sit, have a glass of wine and enjoy.

    We have been looking for good places with outdoor dining in the Murray Hill neighborhood, and now we have found it! This restaurant, located in a Hyatt Hotel, has only been open for 2 months, and was not crowded at all when we arrived at 7:15 on a Friday night. We walked through the restaurant, and got to the back, where we were seated in a very pleasant outdoor patio, open to the sky. Then we were treated to some wonderful food, including creamy tomato soup, seared scallops with tomatoes and olives, and a dover sole prepared table side. The wait staff was very attentive (perhaps a bit overly attentive, but I think that was because the restaurant wasn't very crowded), and it was evident that they very much want to do whatever they can to succeed. While it was a bit pricey (primarily as a result of the cost of the dover sole), the food was VERY good, and without question, we will be returning!

    Excellent newish Italian restaurant just a short walk from 5th Ave on 39th Street. We had calamari as a starter and then the special fish of the day which was Dover Sole. The fish was deboned and finished at our table and had a lemon butter sauce that was served hot. It was excellent and we chose a cacio e pepe as a pasta to go with the fish. Our waiter, Jon, made useful suggestions and the service was excellent. As we were finishing, a large party of Italians from Milan - always a good sign when Italians choose a restaurant when this part of Manhattan has so many Italian eateries to choose from. There’s a good wine list with reasonable prices. A real gem.

    I chose this restaurant last minute due to another restaurant we had a reservation with notifying me that they cannot honor any dinner reservations due to a water leak in their dining room. I was left scrambling and came across Ramerino which had perfect reviews, however at this juncture these reviews look sus. Let’s start with the positives; the hostess was very friendly and accommodating. The waiter was very attentive and provided excellent service. There was an issue with their AC but they got the engineer to fix it, thankfully because it was very warm in the restaurant. We thought the food was underwhelming. Just not much flavor with their red sauce and the chicken was bland. For a NYC Italian restaurant the music playing was 80s dance music. Lastly, the ambiance was awful. It was way too bright. We wanted to enjoy this place but it didn’t go as planned.

    This was an amazing dinner! The ambiance was romantic, the service was incredible, and the food was first class. The waiter and dining room staff were very attentive and friendly. To further elaborate on the food, the spaghetti and bolognese were some of the best Italian dishes that we have eaten this summer. The Tiramisu was light and flavorful. Wine list has good values as well as high end bottles. In the end, try the homemade Limoncello!! Highly recommend this restaurant and we will be back!

    An excellent restaurant! I had a pasta dish, and my boyfriend had the filet mignon. I followed my pasta with an excellent tartufo, while my boyfriend went with the cheesecake. One of the nicest elements: the restaurant was quiet!! Some light music in the background -- but how refreshing to be able to carry on a conversation! Excellent service, especially from a young Albanian waiter.

    Each of the dishes my wife and I ordered was delicious, and the potions were large: we had some of the food wrapped to be taken home. The selection of wines by the glass was extensive enough to satisfy most tastes. The service was attentive without being intrusive. It was our 56th anniversary, and we were comped a wonderful dessert. The prices were reasonable for Manhattan. We understand that an outdoor seating area with a nice view at the top of the building will become available in a few weeks. On the way out, we made a reservation to bring our family.

    This was an absolutely outstanding restaurant! The service was quick and very kind wait staff. The food was absolutely delicious all the way from the bread for a appetizer to the main course to signature cocktails after. My husband ordered a speciality martini (Tiramisu martini) and although they didn’t have it on the menu, and my husband couldn’t remember what was in that drink, the wait staff went out of their way to look it up, make it, and it was insanely delicious. The food was advertised as handmade and definitely was, hands down the best pasta dishes we have ever had.

    Great food. Service was good, but could be better. Big TV in the dining area was distracting. It may be appreciated at lunchtime, but not for a nice evening meal out.
