Shortly after the original Sant Ambroeus opened its doors in Milan in 1936, a devoted following emerged. This celebrated pasticceria and confetteria became the meeting place for the local intelligentsia, whether beginning their day with Sant Ambroeus’s legendary cappuccino and cornetto, savoring panini at lunch, or spending their evening enjoying refined cuisine in the restaurant’s elegant dining room.
We translated these old-world sensibilities of Sant Ambroeus to modern times, and imported our rich culinary traditions to New York. Each of our restaurants remains authentic to our Milanese origins, and we continue to serve our culturally inspired delectables in a casual yet elegant environment.

Perfect in every way!Super attentive staff and tasty food. We warned that we would have very little time and a lot of haste. We were served very fast and everything was great. They had smiles on their faces all the time although we were foreigners and not regular costumers.

Delicious food. Service was alright, nothing special. People who greet you at the door aren't nice. Customer service needs improvement. My dinner was delicious. I have been a customer at all locations in the city.

Somewhat small but nicely decorated restaurant. Seating was fast, although tables are very close together it still is comfortable. Service was ok, just felt that they were rushing you to order and get out. It would be ok for a normal lunch but not a date. Food was nice and fresh. Ordered a salad and was very well done. Good espresso.

Estuvimos aquí hace tres dias, pero es tan buen restaurante y la atención tan esmerada que no dudamos en volver anoche para continuar nuestro tour Gourmet por uno de los imperdibles de NYC!! Hicimos la reserva por Open table apenas una hora antes y había lugar!!

Maravilloso!! La gran manzana le rinde homenaje a su par Italiana!! Aquí encontrará platos deliciosos que se destacan por su preparación fiel a la tradición italiana. Platos simples pero inolvidables. Sabores genuinos y materias prima de altísima calidad. El personal es muy cálido y te hacen sentir como en casa!! Oliva, trufas negras, pasta al dente y una carta de vinos que incluye los grandes vinos de Italia. La carta de postres es otro “must” que nadie debe dejar pasar!!

Waitstaff were very inattentive. Nice venue, but disappointed in the overall service.

Just received a call from the restaurant to address our concern. Incredibly professional! Using the feedback for continued growth of staff and customer service. Well done team Alex!
We will dine with you again!!

Good quality ingredients prepared with no imagination. The prices are high enough that I was expecting more skill and attention given to combining tastes, textures and appearance
