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.

We were there for Restaurant Week lunch, so I can't speak to their regular prices, but our lunch was a fantastic deal. And the food was just amazing -- I can honestly say it was one of the best meals I have ever had. Capping things off, the service was perfect -- polite without being obsequious, and attentive without being pushy. This was an experience I will remember for a long time.

Great vibe, scene, romantic. One of best spots in WV. Get the bolognese and veal. Amazing service - gave us a desert on the house because we were new parents

I came to Sant Ambroeus in the West Village to celebrate my friend's birthday and take advantage of the NY Restaurant Week menu. They had some of their well-known Sant Ambroeus dishes on the restaurant week menu. The Spaghetti all'Arrabbiata was absolutely delicious. It is spicy, but so good that I could not stop eating it. They had a great dessert selection. I ended up choosing the seasonal apple tart, which was a great way to end the meal. The service was very attentive and friendly. The atmosphere was intimate. It was a great West Village restaurant. I would go back for another occasion.

Lovely bistro. Service and food is beyond superb. Intimate space; suitable for couples or quads. Kids and large, loud groups ought to look elsewhere

Went for restaurant week. Excellent. Bummer they ran out of profiteroles (though it looked like it was available for a la carte customers).

Went with friends during winter 2018 restaurant week. Outstanding dishes were the mixed salad and the skate, the others were good or okay. Sophisticated though loud setting, quick and correct service. We spent more on drinks, wine & water, but that's the deal with restaurant week.

Food, service, ambiance, and desserts were all elegant. The short rib and apple tart are particularly delicious. Lovely!

What a wonderful surprise to select this restaurant for NYC Restaurant Week. The food was delightful, the service was friendly and the charm of the restaurant made it feel like we had a brief escape to Italy. I can’t wait to go back!

Ambiance and service trumps this unassuming and intimate West Village hot spot. I was greeted by a pleasant and friendly host, whom I believe I spoke with on the phone as well, remained friendly and accommodating throughout my stay and definitely set the tone right. Everyone from the bar staff to the floor staff were very good and the dinner setting was just impeccable. Food was also very delicious, and so were the wine and cocktails. Perfect place if you would like to impress a date or even for a business meal. I would definitely come back again.
