Italian
Enjoy traditional Northern and Southern Italian cuisine at Da Nico. The beautiful indoor dining room is a favorite among movie stars, New York Yankees and former Mayor Giuliani. The casual, family-friendly atmosphere welcomes you to dine on “The Best Coal Brick Oven Pizza,” or one of the delicious items on the menu.

Specialties include lobster fra diavolo, baby lamb chops and veal chops. Call for the day’s specials.

During the summer, Da Nico features a large outdoor garden which doubles its normal seating capacity. Da Nico is also available for your private parties.

There are many keys to having a great dining experience. With that in mind, consider Da Nico the master locksmith of Little Italy!

    My wife and I live in Nee York and come to Da Nico’s several times a year. This was for my daughter’s 22birthday with 5 of her friends. The wait staff was great and food as usual was on point. Would definitely recommend this place. It’s not just for tourists, but for everyday Italian dinning.

    Food was really good, and for the area, not super expensive. Service was very good as well. Only negative is they tried to overcharge us, which I would normally think was just an accident, but I have read other reviews that mentioned weird things going on with the bill, so maybe not an accident. In any case, I would recommend it to people and just say keep an eye on your bill.

    We arrived at 1 pm and there was no wait and the restaurant was quite empty. They served bread with the most incredible olive oil I’ve ever had. The main courses came out so quickly and the pasta was incredible. The value is pretty outstanding, would definitely like to go again.

    First off the menu online is totally different than the menu at the restaurant in terms of selection. they have 1/3 of the items available., I researched and booked this restaurant for my husband‘s special birthday hoping he could get certain items he loves and two of them were not on the actual menu. But his lobster dinner was pretty good. my veal dish was tough. They gave him a nice surprise piece of cheesecake with a sparkler and the waiters were accommodating which is why I’m giving 3 stars. They also gave a plate of complementary Zeppoli which were tough. Would not return.

    Good food. Great ambiance. Some dishes were great. Chx parm needed a more crisp finish. Burrata ok. It really seems like they are focused on throughput versus quality. Seasoned service is great! Newer staff is mixed - wait staff: if you don’t like your job, leave. Would I go again, sure. Would I look into other places, likely

    The food was good, they had Napoletana pizza which is not often the case. We had diner in the outside terrace which was fine (and not noisy). Waiter was very nice. Yes, it is Little Italy, a very touristy spot in Manhattan but frankly it was nice. Was meeting friends visiting from Europe and they enjoyed it as well (even tough they were disappointed (not by the food) as they realized I wasn’t lying: Little Italy is simple 2 streets the city kept for the tourists basically). The restaurant was run by Albanians but hey, Albanians make great Italian food and isn’t it what NYC is all about anyway:)? Albanians making Italian food, Mexicans make all kind of food (check any kitchen if you don’t believe me)… I don’t know what NYC would be without its immigrants:) Viva NYC.

    The food was great, I got the veal parm, and my cousin got the ravioli, I honestly think the ravioli was better than the veal parm. The Buffalo Mozzarella Caprese was really good. The bartender up front was very attentive and pleasant. While our waiter was great, it almost seemed like the restaurant was overstaffed.... to the point, that we felt kinda rushed. Also, there was a really loud table next to us, so loud that we couldn't hear each other talk (there were 3 of us). Would have been nice if the wait staff had told them to hold it down. Luckily, those people left after we had our appetizer, and the next people that took that table, were talking normally.

    It was a nice dinner in Little Italy. They have a cool garden dining area worth asking for. Chicken parm w homemade pasta was good. Seafood Fra Diovolo was good but not warm enough. Service was very good. Solid 4.

    Found this place on Google search and was eager to try a restaurant in Little Italy. Overall it was nice. They sat us outside in the back. Service was attentive but we felt a little rushed. Very shortly after menus were given we were asked if we wanted to order. We were not told about specials and only knew there were specials because we saw the board on the way out. Food was good but they didn’t honor my open table request for less salt and it was very salty. Veal Piccata good, a bit too much lemon, but I was pleased with the escarole side dish which to me as an Italian American is very authentic. I was not given a dessert menu; the waiter told us what our choices were. Espresso was good, cannoli wasn’t the best I’ve ever had, Italian cheesecake very good. It was VERY crowded but it was Saturday night. It would Have been better if the food was less salty and it wasn’t so rushed. Not sure I would go back. Maybe

    Da Nico's garden is the nicest spot in Little Italy to eat. Its shaded, green and quiet, away from the noise and smells of the street. The food is very good but not great. Try the pasta carbonara, very good. Chicken Parm was light on the chicken, and the Spaghetti and Meatballs needed more sauce. Service was excellent, prices were reasonable, and the garden is outstanding.

    My son and I spend the week end in nyc and he really wanted to go to little Italy so I found this place. Our host was very attentive but soon as we sat it felt like we were a Nuisance to our waiter. We didn’t have the best waiter. It was super busy. But I could tell everything I asked seemed like a chore which I didn’t ask for a lot. They didn’t even refill my sons soda which is pretty simple to notice. Food was awesome great atmosphere but just not great service
