Pure Ambrosia( food of the Gods). Great food,great service from start to finish. Great atmosphere and we didn't have to ask for anything the waiters were attentive of our table and the maitre d stopped by numerous times to thank us for coming and for asking if everything was ok. Osso Bucco was excellent.

Ambrosia? That's up there with one of the best compliments we've ever been given, Aspasia, so thank you for taking the time to share this with us! Please feel free to come back sometime if you're ever in the neighborhood. All the best, Chef Rocco Sacramone More

This is a family favorite. I think the food is better than most NYC restaurants. The staff is friendly and helpful and the food is incredible. Go with the specials as they tend to be memorable. Great wine list too!

I have gone a couple of times. The wait staff is super attentive and the food melts in your mouth. They have never had any trouble seating me but I do always go with a reservation. The prices are fair for the quality. It is super high quality so the prices are a little steep. Always a great outing/meal.

We were visiting some friends in New York and they took us to this restaurant. It was a Thursday night and the place was packed. Service and food was fabulous. We started with stuffed artichoke and it was perfect. The caesar salad was great. I had veal parmigiana and my husband had swordfish which were both delicious. Would definitely go... More

This is my second time to eat at this restaurant. The first time I had the signature dish meza luna with a portobello mushroom appetizer. This time I tried the beet salad with tagliarinni with lobster, broccoli rabe, mascorpone and cherry tomatoes. Incredible does not describe the flavors enough. Their pastas are home made.
