They have really good wines and not overpriced. I love the fact that you can order a lot of small plates to create your meal! The octopus is really good, as well as their pastas. We sat in the back and it looks like a beautiful indoor garden!!

Please note : no reservations are accepted here, make sure you time your arrival otherwise if you arrive during peak dinner hours in the summer there will be a very long wait. Lively bar in front which is open in the front in the summer-- never a fan of glaring tv screens above the bar but nothing i can do... More

Had lunch here. It was as it should be with a serious Italian restaurant. Good wines, pasta 'al dente' and good espresso. Service was kind and thoughtful. Atmosphere easy and relaxed. Good that one is able to choose to sit either with street view or the more private patio.

Oh please. This place is central East Hampton and is packed to the gills with people. Standing room only. You can't hear yourself think. People bumping into us the whole night. You see, our table was located right next to the bar, ostensibly an outdoor table. And the bar was hoppin'. Anyway, cut to the chase. We got a woman... More

This restaurant does not take reservations and gets very crowded given their prime location. The hostess acts like she's doing you a favor to be seated at a table. The first thing the waiter said to us when he came over was "Are you ready to order?" We said we had some questions, and asked him about a few things... More

The service is offensive! We couldn't stand it & left without eating. The food is not bad, which may be OK if you’re willing to wait 20mins to be seated & another 45mins to be served. We live locally & go once a year to give Cittanuova another chance, only to leave with the same shock at the substandard &... More

A good spot for a casual, relatively quick, lunch or dinner. The food is elevated.....yummy pizzas, the best burger, great fish, and an extensive gelato offering. Citta has a warm atmosphere, good service, and absolutely no attitude. Welcomes kids too.
