We had dinner at UVA and loved it. The service and food was spectacular. It was crowded but it didn’t affect us at all. We were seated on time. We will definitely go back.

Went for first time for brunch, felt that the hostess and staff were less than friendly and did not make it an enjoyable experience. Food was OK, not a great spot for brunch. I would have been interested in trying for dinner but will not because staff wasn’t great. No time for poor service in 2020.

We came to celebrate a birthday while on a weekend getaway. Ambience was wonderful, service was wonderful most of our food was wonderful but we had to send back the fish dish because it was not fresh and tasted fishy. The waitress was very apologetic and immediately asked if he wanted to order another meal. I would recommend this to restaurant to friends.

Food was okay - Nothing special. The salad was a little tired. The pasta was a little overcooked.
Good ambiance and decor.

The eggplant rottoni and chicken with artichokes were outstanding. However, my wife's fillet of sole was dry and not tender. A big disappointment. The service was outstanding.

We loved our meals, the vibe of the place is friendly and fun. Our server was from Puglia Italy, she made excellent wine and food recommendations. The prices were good based on the quality of the food. Overall a great choice for a family meal or meals with friends. We will definitely head there again.

Excellent local Italian at reasonable prices compared with all the UES white table cloth Italian restaurants.
Very lively & busy, which sometimes makes it hard for the servers to keep up & be attentive to every table.
Good menu & wine choices.

Love it here - the food is consistently good and the atmosphere is very cozy with a downtown vibe. It can be tough to get a reservation here so very glad it’s on Open Table!

An absolute favorite, we’ve returned to this restaurant many times! Highly recommend the fried artichoke appetizer and the ricotta truffle honey bruschetta. Desserts are also outstanding, as is the ambiance.

In a wasteland of generic and merely serviceable restaurants in the UES, Uva is the only restaurant that I make a point to revisit (after living in UES for 3 years and since moved). The noise level can be very loud in the main portion of the restaurant, but the back garden is perfect with a lovely atmosphere during the winter and warmer months.

The staff is very attentive and friendly. Both of our pastas were delicious and high quality.

Took about 30 min to get seated on a Wednesday night at 8. What’s the point of a reservation?

Food was great, as expected.
