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.

My husband and I recently dined twice here (lunch and dinner) during a three day stay in East Hampton. We found the menu great with good fresh healthy food options; and a good wine list. The service was great, the ambiance great and the cost was good. No booking required on both occasions and we were given a good table.

Hard to find the Gorgonzola in the salad. Cappuccino was smaller than a normal size serving. Meatballs were average. Nothing was awful, nothing really good. Typical Hamptons crowd. Rainy day so it was very crowded after the movies. The bar was a zoo. SRO.....big soccer game but it was easy to get a table to eat. Reasonable prices for East... More

We had an OK meal at this restaurant but this is not a place I will rush to go back. I found the place a bit soulless: there is nothing that really had grabbed me. The food was OK, the wine we want as our two first choices was not available (and the one we got wasn't great), the service... More

Fun restaurant with fresh, tasty food and friendly service. Prices are reasonable and they often have excellent specials so it is a good value as well, which is significant given its central location in East Hampton. As a result there are a good number of locals who know how to take advantage of a good deal. They also make an... More
