Celebrated my mother's in a law birthday here....Our party was seated promptly. there was not outside table so we went inside plus it was humid...We order a few appetizers and were really good and our food was good. To our surprise the portions are really big. After our dinner they provided us with complimentary Limoncello which was very nice..We had... More

Overpriced (the rent is too damn high) and underwhelming. Stopped in for lunch because of its convenient location,directly across from Lincoln Ctr. But, The Flame, a coffee shop at 58th and Columbus does a much better job, and at much less than the $100+ we paid for barely edible food at Fiorello.

We ate at Café Fiorello before attending The King and I at Lincoln Center which is right across the street from the restaurant. The menu is not your typical Italian fare and you may not recognize some of the dishes, but the food is outstanding and the portions are large. The service and the atmosphere were great. The pricing is... More

The air conditioning was not working. The wait staff was dripping sweat as were we. My husband and I ordered the special rib eye for a whopping 50+ dollars --for a rib eye that contained a good deal of gristle. There was nothing exceptional about our dinner and the bill was way too high for the quality of the food... More

When I travel to NYC,attending a performance at the Met/ theater at Lincoln Center Cafe Fiorello's is our to go to Cafe. I know that a Brunch/Lunch/ Pre Theater-dinner here is always going to be good.

What a great NY Italian restaurant! Had the veal chop parmigiano. Home made mozzarella cheese and it covered the whole plate. Tried my best to finish it, failed. Enzo took such great care of us, you wouldn't believe me if I told you. Headed for Lincoln Center for a show or a concert? Plan some time for Cafe Fiorello.

We had dinner at Cafe Fiorello and the food was delicious and our waiter attentive and great fun. They gave us some freshly baked chocolate cookies at the completion of our meal. We had a drink at Centre Bar (in the Lincoln Centre) and watched the sun go down over Central Park before our meal.

I eat here at least once a week. Their food and the service just can't be beat and the fabulous view of Lincoln Center is perfect for that pre-theatre dinner or lunch with friends. It is also quite a lively bar scene there and it is great fun to sit there and enjoy the amazing array of antipasti. Molto bene... More

I went here the night of the marathon. I was reluctant because it seemed touristy. I usually don't eat uptown when visiting NY. However it was recommended by someone who lived in NY for many years. I had a pasta dish. I believe it was ravioli with pesto. It was the most delicious pasta I've had outside of Italy. The... More

Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theater performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
