A Little spot of Italy in New York neighborhood...old school meal,just like the italians “nonas”.
Erminia is a very small neighborhood Italian restaurant well-known for its romantic candle-lit ambiance. It's a great place for date or special occasion.
Tuve una cena maravillosa a la luz de las velas. La comida fue sensacional y el servicio espléndido. Si se quiere personalizado, pregunte por Pepe, el maitre. Fue una noche inolvidable, de seguro volveremos.
We love dining at Erminia ! The wait staff is excellent and the food is fantastic ! We have dined there multiple times over the past five years !
wonderful little gem on upper East side with great ambiance, service, and food. Have been many times before but not in last 2 years. Food and service very good....shared the burrata, and octopus and I had Halibut special and my wife the veal chop. While Erminia does not offer hard liquor, they have a good reasonably priced wine list. Will definitely visit again.
What an incredibly cute and intimate restaurant! I had such a fantastic time here with my boyfriend, and the service was perfect. The food came appropriately fast, and every dish was exquisitely made. Definitely will be coming back here again!
Lovely! It was great
been here several times
always lives up to expectations
great food and service
lovely room that sets the mood
Love this place. It is welcoming, has high quality cuisine and it's quiet enough to talk normally!
We've been coming here for years and the food never disappoints. The service is attentive and it's a romantic atmosphere. We brought some Italian friends visiting from Italy a few years ago and they still remember it fondly. The only caveat is that it is a very small space. If you happen to go when there is a larger party (like the party of 10 that was there when we went), it can feel a bit cramped and a little loud. They have also added music--granted it was at a low volume--but it just added to the general noise . It would have been better without it. Still, we'd go back in a heartbeat. It's terrific food and a great spot.
The food was excellent. Staff attentive but not too much. Lovely, intimate space.
Great food here. Everything is so well cooked. Portions are just right. Service does not rush you. This restaurant is nice and quiet so you can enjoy the conversation.
Lovely tucked away secret spot. Had a lovely anniversary dinner here. Service is superb. The staff knows their pairings very well and even brought out our appetizer in two bowls after mentioning we'd share. Can get noisy as I can imagine couples/friends/neighborhood people frequent here. Would return. Slightly pricey for what you get. Tho you do get privacy and a nice candle-lit table.
Wonderful evening celebrating our 30th anniversary. Romantic ambience and attentive service. Food was excellent!
Intimate space, great food, excellent service, and ideal ambiance. We were the last table on a Saturday night, and we did not feel rushed in the slightest. Feels like you are eating in a home more so than in a restaurant, in a good way.
The ambiance,service and food were excellent . The music was appropriate for the occasion
Amazing food, service, and ambiance. Love this place!
The only thing wrong with Erminia is that they do not serve any drinks other than wine and beer.
The service was excellent but the food was nothing special.
Charming neighborhood place, even romantic. Some of the staff has been there for decades. They are careful, very Italian and not stuffy. Best for family and friends. Reasonably priced wine list with interesting Italian wines. The specials were fairly priced.
We have not visited Erminia for at least 25 years and our dinner on Monday evening made it clear that we have been missing out on a gem. The excellent yet utterly unpretentious food, welcoming service, gently lit woody ambiance and intimate, conversational acoustic environment made us feel immediately at home - or should I say back at home. We will return, certainly and frequently.
A spectacular dinner served in a quiet, cozy setting by a wonderful, friendly staff. From the wine to the appetizers to an exquisite seafood risotto and the napoleon its cloys light pastry cream and flaky pastry, it was a night to remember from beginning to end. We will be going back again and again and again. Bravo Erminia!
Absolutely beautiful romantic restaurant . The menu has several choices. Our meals were delicious and will definitely return .
Fabulous food, service,and setting. Will transport you to Roma. Try the orecchiette, and don’t miss the Dover Sole.
Very cozy and romantic restaurant! Food is delicious! Service is great! It is a perfect spot for any special occasion.
Fantastic old world Italian ambiance and food with wonderful service.
My girlfriend and I had our one year anniversary dinner at Erminia, and we enjoyed it tremendously! Service was prompt, atmosphere was right, very romantic, and the food was superb. A wonderful experience to celebrate a wonderful occasion. 10/10
Outstanding Roman cuisine!
Thank you to the staff and owner for making an exception and allowing us to celebrate a NYC honors bravery medal in our casual clothes.
I wanted to go here for a long time and this was a special occasion. The ambiance was charming,
it was perfect. It was quiet so we could actually talk to each other and hear the response. The wine
list was amazing, but my favorite was not on it and they told me not to worry they had it.
The menu was a problem...we wanted everything! The gnocchi with a truffle cream sauce
must be eaten one by one slowly, it is so amazing. At that point, you think that nothing could
be better but the entree was this incredibly flavored grilled shrimp, crunchy mushrooms and
an arugula salad. We were so satisfied there was no room for dessert.
We can't wait to go again.
Cute, very intimate space so even though there were only 30 people it was noisier than expected. The service was fantastic, my husbands meal was excellent
I first came to Erminia about 25 years ago. I keep it ONLY for when I want to take a person who's exceptionally important to me, so they realize how much they mean to me.
Lovely. Romantic. Great service. Good
Food. Cheesecake was heavenly!!
Consistently delicious and lovely. We went pre-Cafe Carlyle and had such an exceptional meal. Was delightful to return to a neighborhood find and be still charming.
Really enjoyable meal in a cozy, relaxed room. Will go back!
The food was average, but the ambience was wonderful and the service excellent. Prices were reasonable.
The food was very good. Had fresh made pasta special. The room is very small with table close togethr
Authentic Roman Italian food in a small and romantic environment. The food is consistently excellent.
For years Bruno and his staff serve great food and wine in a lovely setting. We visit whenever we can!
