I don't know about this place, I feel like it's trying to be a luxury restaurant but it falls short. The food is good, but for the price you're paying it's a little bit of a stretch. I've had better for way less. Great atmosphere though

Very poor dining experience. Ordered from the fixed price menu, had to decide on choice of dessert on the outset. Starters: fine, then had to wait an inordinate amount of time for main course to arrive. Bruschetta and breadsticks appeared on table for the second time, obviously some problem. Asked that they maybe taken away as may have been a... More

BUT this restaurant was put down and... More

It was after the theater and were hungry but did not have any place directly in mind. The Abboccato was just a block from our hotel and it had caught my eye earlier in the day so decided to take a gamble on the food. Must admit, was surprised it was better executed than I had expected which made for... More

Nice cosy decor and quiet. Good Italian food with a good choice of dishes. Service is good and the prices are reasonable. Would definitely go back there on another visit to NYC.... Recommend a table in the in-door/out-door area

I did not enjoy my meal here...Very disappointing. I ordered the Chicken Picatta which should be strongly flavored with lemon...I couldn't taste any lemon.
