    Carefully crafted Northern Italian fare cooked by a very serious chef. Lunch is a great value.

    Good lunch menu

    Great atmosphere and amazing pasta!

    The only negative is they offer you water & charge you for it no matter wether you have gas or no gas!

    Very reminiscent of Italy. Great food & atmosphere.

    Sit by the fireplace and don't miss the raviolo in brown butter sauce

    Helen Yun · September 11, 2012
  • 7th.List

    The homemade pastas are the specialty here like a raviolo filled with stracchino, parmigiano, and burrata, bathed in a rosemary-brown butter sauce. For dessert try Panna cotta Read more

  • The Food Sluts

    Kind of corporate but pasta is pretty pleasing. Try the spicy cortecce with baby octopus and pancetta ($24). Read more

    Ask about getting half bottles from the wine list, such a great idea

    Amazing lunch deal. $20.12 for 3 beautiful and delicious courses!

  • The Corcoran Group

    The upstairs is a nice intimate hideaway in which to enjoy Pappardelle with Duck Bolognese and Giannone Chicken. A bit on the pricey side of the scale.

    Rainbow Beets with Whipped Robiola, Wild Watercress and 12yr-Aged Balsamic

    the raviolo.

    Need to try the raviolo.

    Eater recommends the Raviolo.

  • Time Out New York

    Reserve a table in the main dining area, outfitted with a romantic chandelier and a bright fireplace that’s used to warm focacce, ciabatte and pizzas before they’re served. Read more

  • Halstead Property

    Have the wine specialist give you recommendations, they're wizards of wine. The bay scallops and siamese ravioli were highlights.

    Halstead Property · January 27, 2012
  • Sabina P.

    The hostesses is extremely rude and someone may think twice about coming in.

    Sabina Perchekly · January 22, 2012
  • Jee C.

    Tasting menu no longer being offered as of December. Get the Veal meatballs. They are amazingly delicious.

    A date night? Dim lights, cozy, very intimate...

    The dinner and wine (we did a 4 course tasting menu) were delicious. The Ceretto Barolo "Brunate" 1979 had leathery, earthy tones and a lot of complexity, while being surprisingly light.

    Krista Sande-Kerback · December 15, 2011
  • Rachel W.

    Along with their divine pastas, Ciano's duck breast is one of the best I've ever had (and I LOVE duck). Lovely space to boot.

    Rachel W. · November 29, 2011
  • Josephine S.

    Get the meatballs no matter what!

    Josephine Son · November 13, 2011

    A timely tip, as this is a restaurant made for Autumn. Come for the duck bolognese stay for the atmosphere: an open hearth, perfect flatware, communal bottle-splitting of an ever-changing wine list.

    Chicken liver crostini. I'm still dreaming about it!

    Helen Lin · October 14, 2011

    This Italian eatery serves its soft-shell crabs with peekytoe crab stuffing alongside a grapefruit tomato salad ($19) all month.

    amNewYork · September 27, 2011

    The veal meatballs are incredible! As is the chicken for two & everything else on the menu.

  • Helen R.

    Some of the most interesting seasonal dishes are on the $115 tasting menu. Don't worry - you can order all of them a la carte.

    Helen Rosner · August 3, 2011
  • Marcelline L.

    The Veal Meatballs should be on everyone's to-do list

    Marcelline Laccadito · July 16, 2011
  • Kate G.

    You have the option to order a la carte from the prix fixe Market Menu. Go for the Cortecce Pasta. For an extra romantic seat, ask for a corner table upstairs near the windows.

  • Tiffany & Co

    Ciano is where lovers share antipasti by candlelight. Rustic and refined, chef Shea Gallante’s Italian restaurant looks like a grand Tuscan villa. Ask to be seated by the wood-burning fireplace.

    Tiffany & Co · June 1, 2011
  • Chris S.

    Veal. Meatballs. Now. Do it.

    The Polenta is INSANE!!!!!

    Sarah Malcolm · April 30, 2011

    Ask for Robert! He gives great service!

  • Ania

    Great wine options plus you can order a half bottle (letting you mix and match for dinner)

  • Rachel J.

    The apps were amazing and the egg dishes were awful (poached eggs cooked thru and frittata wasn't hot and had soggy vegetables)

    Give your self 2x the time and pop a patience pill 'cuz the house is out of order. Tons of problems. Food was good.

    Can you smell that woodsmoke, from the fireplace? Divine. (You’ll smell it tomorrow in your hair.) Now have some wine and tortellini, pork. Read more

    The New York Times · January 19, 2011
  • Ali

    Sit by the fireplace and order the 4 course tasting menu. Mancini with an order of the artichoke salad will put a smile on your face. Ask for what kind of open wine bottles they have floating.

    Ali · January 13, 2011
  • nymag

    She Gallante’s next effort after Cru is a veritable hit. Platt loves the cortecce pasta with octopus best. Featured in Where to Eat 2011! Read more

    Don't pass up Ciano's meatballs—delicious veal orbs laced with truffle and pecorino, and sided with white polenta. Read more

    Metromix · December 21, 2010
  • Gilt City

    Reasons to go: an open hearth in the middle of the rustic dining room serving up fresh-baked, rosemary-infused bread nightly. (And ravioli stuffed with red wine-braised veal breast.)

    Gilt City · December 3, 2010
  • tara s.

    Veal meatballs and truffle gnocci. Amazing service and food.
