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.

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

Was looking for upscale food and service. Was not disappointedly. Very well staffed but not over baring. Would like be to also drop in for just coffee & gelato or bakery.

Last night on NYE, the moment we sat down, three different waiters came rushing us to take our order. We didn’t even have the chance to look at the menu instead we were busy asking them for their courtesy of at least 5’ alone with the menus-unthinkable to have to consider that a luxury! It was very obvious that they wanted us out as soon as possible so they could leave for the night, even though we had a reservation. We were wondering why such poor treatment since the restaurant is open and took our reservation. Such a pity because we wanted to select a nice bottle of champagne and that behavior put us off. We have never been treated as poorly anywhere all these years dining out in NYC.
Then the food was beyond mediocre for the price. I wouldn’t recommend the place for a special occasion but stick to their cafe portion.

Probably the best upper east Italian restUrand with a Milanese touch. Not cheap but definitely worth it.

The food and service were top notch. The restaurant’s ambience is impressive but not pretentious. The food and experience are worth the price. Come here for a special occasion or just to treat yourself.
