    Amazing gnocchi with truffle oil! Must have that!!! Must must must!!!! Also the antipasto misto is great for groups. As desert I had the girella AL cioccollato, but the chocolate mousse was better.

    A romantic and intimate setting with an incredible wine list, making it the ultimate date spot. The gnocchi here is to die for! Be sure to also come for brunch and get the Contadina frittata.

    The food here is authentic and delicious. We came for brunch and were amazed with the portion size and quality. Definitely get the brunch special (includes a drink). Apple Cinnamon Pancakes - YUM.

    I've enjoyed dinner on the sidewalk cafe and in the back patio. Back patio is more romantic but it can get a little loud. Most memorable dishes: stuffed eggplant app & Nutella-y sponge cake dessert!

    The best wine bar I've been in NYC, from hostess, bar tender, wait staff to the food. Everything on point. Get the fried artichokes, dip them in the leftover sauce from the truffle polenta. Gnocchi.

    Have never had a bad meal here, but the pappardelle with veal ragu is a personal favorite.

    The gnocchi is amazing; ask to sub it in the Pappardelle Al Ragu Di Vitello. Favorite wine there is the Montepulciano D'Abruzzo.

    This is the perfect date night spot! Have a bottle of Lambrusco in the back garden, and order the ricotta truffle honey bruschetta that everyone raves about!

    Excellent brunch. The Nutella hot focaccia was a nice starter, and the rustica frittata was excellent. Uva has a back patio that is a delight.

    Late night menu is the best deal. Got the ricotta Mac & cheese $10, and friend got the ricotta gnocchi truffle. Ricotta heaven. Hazelnut ice cream was best but flavored ice cream I’ve ever had.

    Very cozy and romantic atmosphere. Gnocchi was as really delicious as its famous reputation, and the scampi was amazingly fresh and tasty.

    Pizza style focaccia is a great starter and the stuffed eggplant is yummy, but the portions do vary in size and they don't really have side dishes. Regardless, I'll definitely be back to try more!

    One of my uptown favorites. Huge fan of the goat cheese & black pepper bruschetta, as well as the veal ragout farfalle. Wine is also incredibly well-priced. Sit in their back garden, if you can.

    The section in the back is all glass and has stunning light. Feels like you're in a small Italian village far away from Manhattan! And the food and wine was delicious (get the Chianti Classico!!).

    Gnocchi was as advertised! Prosciutto stuffed ravioli was a great choice. Don't forget dessert Girella al Ciocolato was a huge hit with our group

    So much truffle *drool* on the menu. Gnocchi was incredible. Try and get seated in the garden at the back if you can - feels like you're in West Village, not UES.

    Heather is the best. If your idea of a great dining experience consists of prompt service, quality conversation and personal attention all in perfect moderation - ask to be seated in her section.

    We're obsessed with their sheep's ricotta cheese and black truffle honey bruchetta. Don't think, just get it. Pair it with the gnocchi di ricotta and a wine by the glass for a perfect experience.

    We love the lunch menu, which boasts dishes like paninis pressed with ham and pecorino and polenta filled with robiola cheese in a black truffle sauce. You'll be temped to stay for dinner.
