    This is an amazing restaurant. Great food and better service. It’s a very intimate restaurant with the low light setting. I’ve gone here for drinks with my wife during the day and a few times at night for dinner with the fam. My kids love the food. Food is always tasty and fresh. One of Harlem’s best restaurants hands down.

    Vinateria is one of my all time favorites! You get the downtown Manhattan dining experience/vibe right in Central Harlem. The food is amazing and the service is always on point. We loved our server, Karli :) can’t wait to go back!

    Everything was delicious! The appetizers were fabulous: grilled octopus, crochettes & meatballs over polnta. My only issue was I ordered the whole bronzino and the waiter asked if I wanted it fileted or whole, but the skin wasn't cooked (I was expecting crispy), so why would I want it whole? My friend had it fileted and it was much easier to eat (boneless). Otherwise, wines, ambience, value was excellent.

    The restaurant itself was wonderful, but it seems like they did not actually understand that I had a reservation and clicked that we weren’t there, even though I gave them my name and said we were checking in for our 5:30 reservation.

    The food is fabulous, inventive, artful, and satisfying. They have an excellent and comprehensive wine list. The staff is absolutely lovely, but we had a few glitches with our order, although they were very solicitous in making things right. What makes it less that 5 star is that the tables are literally butting up against each other so it feel a bit like a school cafeteria, and the noise level is deafening. As we were there on a Friday during restaurant week, I would go back hoping that it won’t be so sardine packed and noisy.

    Absolutely wonderful! The service was supreme! Celebrating a birthday, I brought in cupcakes and they presented them beautifully with a birthday song sung by a trained tenor in Italian. You must go... everyone must visit. The owners mom and dad visited tables and they were fabulous as well. I hope to come back for dinner, having just returned from the California wine country, I hear their wine list is one to review! Thank you for a wonderful celebration!!

    The first time we booked a reservation here for dinner, we waited about 40 minutes (past our reservation time) because they were behind on seating before leaving. Second time we went to try again for brunch, it was a solid meal but you’re uncomfortably close to people, the food is very average, and I wouldn’t recommend it

    My wife and I went and we were impressed. Kathleen was a great waitress, she knew the menu and answered any questions and made suggestions. The mussles appetizer was a great choice, the sauce was very tasty, the soppressatta took it over the top. I had the home made pasta was really good, my wife had the lamb chops, which were cooked perfect. I had a nice Spanish wine as well. Tom the manager surprised us with a chocolate cake dessert on the house. Definitely will go back. Good experience.

    Over the years we've eaten here several times, but never for Brunch. The Brunch has a varied menu, which is good, but some of the items weren't great - we feel they excel with pasta dishes. And the Bloody Mary is fair, at best. We always enjoy eating here, and swinging by to just have drinks.

    The food was very good, but the noise level was intolerable this visit. It has always been loud the previous two times I have been there, but seemed much more noisy this time. We could not pursue a conversation. The restaurant was almost full when we were there. For this reason, I would not return. Isn't there some dampening equipment you could purchase?

    I wasn’t sure the restaurant got my Open table reservation so I called. Tom answers and says come on in. When I got there he greeted me by name and brought us right to a waiting table. The rest of the evening followed suit with excellent table service and very good food. I would definitely recommend this plane to anyone looking for great food and service along with a warm and friendly Atmosphere

    I love this place. (I live in the neighborhood.) The food is wonderful and unpretentious, the drinks are great, the service is lovely and the whole place is warm and festive. My latest visit, I was with four old friends. Almost everyone had brightly flavored salads and wonderful pastas. (I had the roast chicken, which is ridiculously good.) Everyone loved it -- and commented on how reasonable the prices are for such a delicious and lovely meal.

    Went here for a date night, it was very crowded and very loud. Our “reserved” table was right next to the hostess station which was not very nice so we chose to sit at the bar instead. Really really delicious food, acceptable service, good wine, VERY loud, not much personal space.
