    8.8..... perfect example of the subjectivity of these sites. Forget about the horrible service, the food was meh and meh, swimming in a sea of superior Italian restaurants in the immediate area

    While food for dinner was delicious service was slow and seemed uncaring.

    Ambience was nice. Food was a bit salty. Do not order the squid ink crab pasta

    Love the pasta here!

    Not your typical NYC restaurant given the size. Our waiter was very slow and monotone so didn't contribute to the best ambience.

    Standard Italian fare - nothing really pops out as being more memorable than other restos. Our waiter, Aaron, was not helpful or friendly - was offputting.

    On hot summer days, dine outside beneath the awning. Enjoy the weather and beautifully prepared delicacies outdoors without getting fried. Also don't sit along the hedges to avoid uninvited guests.

    Spicy sister of Dell'anima. A bit less cozy for me but nevertheless good. The cookbook is awesome too.

    So disappointed my second visit was one of my worst NYC dining experiences. the service is horrible. 5+ servers later and +30 minutes between drinks and courses. I won't be coming back anytime soon.

    Pastas are all fantastic. The pork chop is def worth an order. Great wine list

    Short rib tagliatelle, charred octopus, and brussels sprouts were excellent. Mushroom fettuccini was good but heavy on thyme. Vibe + interior feels more suburban than hip NY, which was disappointing.

    Guys are really amazing. Best new restaurant in America... For sure they deserve it! They can make you feel wow. Every single dish what we ordered was just too good.

    Portion of Mezzaluna was flavorful, but way too small considering the price.
  • Breeze S.
    Breeze SkrrtAugust 14, 2015
    Food is great but always really salty. There's never much of a wait these days--the restaurant is huge--so it's a good bet if you're waiting until last minute in the neighborhood.

    The service was rather clueless, but the food was off the chain. My friend and I already made plans during brunch to return there for dinner!

    Loved the tajarin and the bucatini. The grilled broccoli rabe makes a great side. The gnocchi is also good but a little too soft for my liking. BYOB w/ no corkage on Sun and Monday. Must try!

    The food was great, but the waiters and workers took turns asking if we were done every 5 minutes to the point where it got frustrating.

    Had a great dinner at L'Apicio. Appetizers of burrata, grilled octopus and peeky toe crab were excellent and enough to be shared by 5 diners. Dinner entrees of ciopino, pastas were ridiculously good.

    salads are on the small side, apps and entrees were somewhat underwhelming. pasta's the right move here and they are all exceptional, get over your squeamish-ness and go for the sweetbread pasta.

    From the chef behind Dell'Anima, you're sure to have a great meal here - whether it's the lamb shank hash for brunch, or any of the fresh pastas for dinner. Try to snag an outside table if possible!
