Arriving on the first Saturday in March to San Carlo Osteria Piemonte, my wife and I found it very busy, but we were seated immediately at the cozy bar. Every table was taken and the room was overflowing with the sounds, sights and smells of a great restaurant. The bartender quickly made two nice drinks for us which we were able to enjoy while adjusting to the sound level which was pretty high, but enjoyable. Everyone sure seemed to be enjoying themselves. We were seated promptly and could see the beautiful dishes of food that were flowing out of the kitchen. Our server, Dilek, was absolutely amazing as she made some nice suggestions on the menu and negotiated the crowd and bustle of the other wait staff. Dilek was such a delightful presenter throughout the night as she brought out the amazing food and wine that was so skillfully prepared by the kitchen. Wow, the veal milanese was the best I've ever had! The arugula salad was a perfect balancing partner with the veal and the rosemary potatoes were light and crispy and perfectly seasoned. A beautiful Barbaresco was an incredible match. Ravioli were delicious little pillows with an amazing meat filling nicely covered in a beautiful cream sauce.
On a very busy night, the staff handled every moment with skill, patience and kindness. Dilek suggested a wonderful chocolate dessert that was incredible, light and so full of flavor! After dinner sweet wine was a perfect way to end the night. Thank you San Carlo for a tremendous night out!
So great. Best restaurant ever.
Celebrating my daughter’s birthday. The food was great, the service was wonderful. Great atmosphere in a lovely neighborhood.
Can’t wait to go back!!
food is tasty and cocked by expert hands, respecting the tradition of Piedmont.
My wife and I have been to Italy multiple times. We have been to Milan multiple times. We like Piedmontese cuisine. On this night the restaurant was empty and we had a poor execution of northern Italian fare.
The food is always excellent. What makes it even better is the excellent luncheon special (2 courses for $15). We have never been disappointed by either the quality or the service.
This place is the best, attentive staff and amazing food. I can't say enough good things about every meal I've had there...
If you're looking for great northern Italian cuisine and love truffles this is the place to be. The only detriment is the noise levels are very high and you have to get one of the banquet tables to hear the person across from you. It's also wise to go early before the crowds.,
Excellent lunch special!!
The food was delicious and the prices were very reasonable. Energetic vibe (which could be a little loud for the older set) but we really enjoyed it. Will definitely recommend San Carlo to friends!
Always great place to come back, traditional food from Piedmont, great service but in a family environment, highly recommend for any occasion, date, friends in town or business meal. Buon appetito!
I had one of the best New Year's experiences ever dining at San Carlo. The staff were extremely friendly and they treated myself and my girlfriend with the upmost respect and courtesy. They gave great recommendations on wine and didn't base them on prices or sales, but more so of what I wanted to try. The food was prepared and served so quickly and it did not taste as if it was rushed. I will totally be returning and recommending this restaurant to my friends and family!
A perfect New Year'Eve @ San Carlo Osteria Piemonte. Great food, great place, great team.
We will surely come back. Grazie mille !!
The evening of the 31st was such a disappointment. We did not recognize the food. Presentation was lacking
Tacky and loud music all night long not the refined restaurant we normally go to. Perhaps they simply had a night off and too many reservations. They could not keep the quality and delicate presentation in the plates.
Hopefully they can go back to their original standards. We even asked if the chef had changed !
Wir feierten unsern Silvester Abend hier.
Schön dekoriert aber für uns etwas zu überfüllt.
Klima im Lokal war von zu kalt bis zu warm im Wechsel, einfach nicht angenehm.
Sehr laute Musik und den Gesprächslärm zu übertönen.
Das Essen war oke, typische italienische Küche. Kein 0815 Pizza Pasta, was uns gut gepasst hat.
Der Service war sehr stressig, wurde beinahe im Minutentakt gefragt ob wir das Essen ausgesucht hätten.
Vielleicht ist das in NY normal.
the food was amazing, and so was the Wine. The atmosphere was authentic, except for the music selection, which also was quite loud. Sorry too say, the dishes came too quickly in succession.
Really lovely, light, and bright flavors. We’ll be back!
Excellent Italian place in NY, the best so far! Authentic cuisine.
Incredible food. High quality pasta and wonderful wine. I highly recommend the prosciutto and cheese table and the lasagnette. 10/10
Ristorante carino, noi abbiamo prenotato per il pranzo di Natale, volevamo un pò di calore italiano, il cibo è di qualità, abbiamo mangito bene, speso un pò, ma ce lo aspettavamo. L'unica cosa che non abbiamo riscontrato è il calore, l'oste pur essendo italiano non è mai venuto al tavolo per chiederci come andava, ci ha sempre servito una ragazza evidentemente americana, fredda e piuttosto frettolosa. Per il cibo comunque mi sento di consigliare questo ristorante.
After two visits in recent weeks this has become one of our favorite Italian restaurants in New York. The greeting is warm and the service professional. The atmosphere is refined and comfortable. The lunch specials are a great deal, but the kitchen really shines at night. The Piemontese cuisine is a refreshing change from the usual Italian offerings in the city. The special Christmas dinner was delicious from start to finish. Everything was beautifully presented. The wine list offers some reasonably priced choices as well as some exceptional options. Though the restaurant was busy, we never felt rushed.
Amazing food and service
Not as good as it was in September. The same salad was better then. This time it was a cut-in-half head of a lettuce, Romaine? with various veges thrown on top. The anchovies on toast with a goat? cheese was only simple, nothing special. The pulled rabbit with lasagnette was very good but too much butter--too rich. Unnecessary. The chocolate flan was delicious
To go for good food quality and fantastic service. Will come back next time I am In town.
Our favorite place visiting Soho, a must visit! The food and staff are wonderful here.
We had a young waiter who paid very little attention to our table. He seemed pretty checked out, so the service was very poor. He might have been a "one off", as the rest of the wait staff seemed very engaged. One of our meals was good, but one tasted like something we could have thrown together at home. We won't be returning.
Met with some family for dinner, this always is a great treat. Hostess was engaging and friendly. They seated us immediately upon arrival.
Server was friendly and attentive food was amazing from the starters to the desserts.
Each course was well timed and the wine list has fantastic options and value.
Excellent Vitelli Tonnato, carbonara good but not great. Overall very good experience.
After loving the food but critiquing poor service a few months back, I was craving a wonderful pasta and gave it another try. Pastas continue to be superlative (I boringly always order the lasagnette with rabbit--flavorful, rich and light at the same time, and a unique presentation) but the most important point of this review is kudos to the management: they had read my earlier review complaining about poor service and bent over backwards to make sure we were attentively cared for. With a busy restaurant (fully 1/3 of the tables turned in the 90 minutes or so we were there), this attention to constructive criticism was both unusual and impressive; it has now put San Carlo on my short list of current favorites and my go-to when I want pasta. The wine list is thoughtful and interesting, if a tad pricey, but careful searching rewards with some gems in the $70-80 range.
Fantastic all around. The meat and cheese board for starters, some of the best. It was the way they sliced the meats and cheeses. Paper thin cuts that melt in your mouth. The rib eye was equally as mouth melting. Let’s talk about their thick and creamy hot chocolate.....even if you’re not in the mood for a meal, this little cup of heaven is worth the trip. Service was as good as the food, and if you’re a truffle fan this is your spot.
We had a relatively early reservation at 7:00 PM on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. The restaurant that is small was hosting a large dinner party for about 20 people that negatively affected the ambience and the attention of the wait staff.
However the food was great and the owner of the restaurant quite charming. I also believe that there was a substitution on one of the appetizers, salmon stuffed with bass was all bass.
This was my second visit, but I will go back again, happily
Excellent food and service, especially if you're familiar with the food and wine of Piedmont. Had a wonderful time, and would recommend.
Excelente comida y atención. El lugar pequeño pero muy cálido y acogedor. La atención excelente y las sugerencias de comida adecuadas. Los ravioles de ternera y el pato deliciosos. Totalmente recomendado si andas por la zona de SOHO
Service was absolutely excellent: understated, not pushy, no introduction of server. Truffle risotto, tho expensive, was worth every penny. Authentic Italian dining without all the “ Dean Martin,/meatballs/large quantity” fuss. Just good quality.
Cena di Thanksgiving , menu dedicato eccellente, ottimo servizio, accoglienza calorosa
Outstanding, fine ans tasty cuisine. One of the best Italian restaurant in Manhattan. Feel you are in Northern Italy. Actually my favorite one.
Good Food Good service
Visit to 2019.11/16, this Italian is wonderful, without a doubt, success in Tokyo.
The owner's personality was wonderful and I wanted to visit it again and again.
Good food for normal price. Something that not easy to find in NY
What a find. Proper authentic cooking in nice surroundings with great service.
