Italian
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.

The vongole pasta was just ok; nothing special...had to send it back since pasta was too al dente.

The food was excellent. The service was mediocre. Although it was a small restaurant our servers seemed so busy they did not have a lot of time to help us. Tables were very close together so other diners felt as if they were dining with us. The noise level was pretty high. I would go back b/c the food was so good.

Well, basically we had reasonable good food with only a name to relate it to true Italian cuisine. What do you make of a Vitello tonnato that consist of excellent meat, a weird creamy fishy brown butter and pickled (!!) peppers? And the most strange risotto I have ever tasted. Please go back to true, simple but tasteful italian cooking. You did a great job with the coffee and the pastry, try it with the food also. Food: 6/10, wine: 7/10, coffee: 9/10, pastries: 8/10.

I have been to any of the Saint Ambrous restaurants since day one in NY (11 years). Quality of food is great but price are gone really insane.
This is year they have changed the price of a simple cake as the crostata from 42$ to 50$.

Sad to say I won't buy it anymore.

Sant Ambroeus has good Italian food -occasionally great. The artichoke salad is lovely .... lentil soup good ... would be better with pork ...clam linguini ( vongole). Needs more clams & garlic.... nice Wine choices. Love the olive bread and espresso & gianduia.

We ate in the outside area between 2 buildings which is quite quaint. Several people had issues with bees but other than an occasional fly by we were ok. Food and service were very good. For value... it's The Hamptons, so expect extremely high prices.

Just love the indoor and outdoor hostesses...very friendly, accommodating, classy women. They put on no airs even when place is packed.
Of course food always perfect -branzino yummy, on Fava beans and spaghetti strofinati - always my son’s favorite - was flawless. The appetizer melon with prosciutto just right—sweet and delicious.
Since it was our 33year anniversary, at the end of our meal when we asked for the check,
Waiter brought us most incredible complimentary mouth watering slice of hazelnut cake with candle on it...made our evening. I def recommend this place.

Food was delicious, started with this incredible eggplant app then a pasta special with short rigatoni mushrooms so good, my son had the veal chop special cooked perfect. A little pricey for lunch 1 app, 1 pasta, 1 entree, 1 soda and 1 Bellini = $175

Had a reservation for lunch. We were seated by our waiter as the host was busy talking to someone else and the hostess was clueless. Not a great start but ok. Our waiter was excellent. Wish we got his name. He should be the host. Red snapper arrived raw. Then when cooked was very fishy and not flaky. My veal was perfect. To their credit they did not charge for the fish. After all this I still recommend this restaurant as very good and would return.

We arrived 10 minutes early and despite continued assurances that our table would be ready shortly we had to wait about 40 minutes to be seated. The previous table just lingered, and we understand that they can't just be made to leave. It set a bad mood for our dinner. To their credit, the restaurant did cover our champagne. The food was good but not extraordinary, and it was very pricey

Great bread, wonderful salads, and incredible pasta. I had today's special pasta with sweet Italian sausage, sun-dried tomatoes, and a touch of cream. One of my favorite all-time meals. And it was topped off by a lovely Rose, and followed by a Viennese cappuccino. Sitting on the beautiful outside alley/patio on a perfect summer day
