    The Aperol Spritz was on point, the espressos as authentic af and every single thing we ate was a delight. Service was excellent to boot (it was a weeknight) and we loved sitting outside. I approve!

    Springtime is heralded as soon as this Bowery restaurant unveils its patio. Ten years since opening, Gemma’s sidewalk cafe is still one of the most popular in New York. Read more

    Start with a focaccia robiola pizza -- creamy robiola and white truffle oil between two thin layers of focaccia.

    delicate stuff but non impressive food

    This not-so-secret gem is hopping at all hours of the day, and it’s not hard to see why. When we can have burrata-topped pizza and an eclectic crowd in equal measure, we’re happy campers. Read more

    Nice atmosphere good service. Food was alright.
  • Mitu K.
    Amazing food (try the polenta fries, brunch bowl, or eggs, polenta and mushrooms) at prices much lower than most restaurants of this caliber & style.

    Just NO! Stereotypical, unauthentic decor. Poor service (unhygienic menu, had to get our own forks, superficial and dismissive attitude). Most of that could be forgiven had the food not been mediocre.

    Julian AndrewsOctober 24, 2016
    Menu was dripping wet with a long dark hair on it. When I told the server, she dismissively said 'I know' while turning away. Meals were served with no forks. I had to get them for the table myself.

    Spot a model or two and create a scene with the Nutella calzone.

    Came here for a birthday dinner. Quickly became one of my favorite Italian restaurants in the city. Atmosphere is tough to beat. I usually try not to repeat restaurants, but this one is an exception!

    Honestly such a disappointment. Although the décor is exquisite, the food falls below average. I had the eggs a la Gemma (eggs benny) which was prepared bland and noticeably without passion.

    come for a celeb crowd and antipasti. The rest of the menu is mediocre. Get Peroni's, fritto misto (good deal at $15) and truffle fries. Once you've gawked, cross the street for drinks at the Wren.

    Tortellini with spinach and ricotta in a sage and butter sauce was perfect to match the cozy atmosphere of the restaurant. It's a shame the service was awful

    Pro Tip: eat at the bar. You miss out on people watching, but you are better for it due to good conversation w/the bartenders.

    Get the meat and cheese plate, chefs assortment. Nothing too stinky. For $19 you get 4 meats and 2 cheeses, which would cost $60 if bought individually.

    I've been here over 15 times. And that makes this probably my most visited restaurant in NYC. But with so many choices in this city, you know a place that's worth repeating is worth trying!

    Not a good place for happy hour. They won't let you sit outside and just have drinks if you don't order food, which is cheaper than the drinks.

    I used to be all about the salmon until I discovered the roast chicken. Big tip here is to ask for the house spicy oil, it elevates the chicken dish to the highest levels.

    Don't come here and pretend that you're not going to have pizza. In the end you're not just going to have a margarita pizza... You're going to go for the truffle pizza. Just stating the facts....
