The word is out: Marlon Abela, the restaurateur behind London's Michelin one-star with two-stars rising Greenhouse, has opened a new modern Italian restaurant A Voce ("word of mouth") on the edge of chic Madison Square Park. The emphasis is on grown-up, deeply delicious Italian cookery set against a back drop of Italian style and organic East Coast elements.

Excellent Italian in Flatiron

Why this place is not teeming with customers is puzzling. The food, like its uptown sister, is excellent. The homemade pasta is one always standout. Meat dishes are good too, particularly the lamb and veal. This is they rare restaurant where one can have a conversation without loud music playing... read more

My third time at A Voce. After two salty and expensive meals,decided to give it one more try.We sat in the lounge. We were not offered the "restaurant Week" option, which was in effect but not known to us- which is significantly less expensive, but were directed to the main menu. My friend ordered wine- three glasses of red wine,... More

Business dinner that exceeded expectations. Was not terribly busy for a cold Tuesday night, but service was wonderful and enjoyed the atmosphere as I didn't feel like everyone sitting on top of each other. Food was delicious and enjoyed chef's menu.

We ordered 1 foccacia, 1 tuna salad and 1 teeny portion of ravioli NO DRINKS just water as we were shopping at lunch time $90.... Ridiculous. However, the food was quiet tasty and the restaurant was spotlessly clean too.

On a business trip to speak at a conference, and stopped by here on the recommendation of our hotel concierge and we were not disappointed. Myself and a business associate ordered the heirloom beet salad which was fresh and quite tasty. We followed that with a couple very good pasta entrees and followed with the halibut and pork loin main... More

The headline says it all, amatriciana sauce was really below average, far too much salt, too much fat. The pasta came warm not hot. The place was 70 percent empty at 8.30 pm.

Nice space, attentive staff, an excellent Restaurant Week menu. We really enjoyed our visit and were very pleased with the selection offered on the very inexpensive set menu for Restaurant Week. A minor point, the delicious penne could have had salty less salt. They were out of the Proscecco we chose but offered us a more expensive one for the... More

We were there today with our kids for lunch. To begin with , the only view available was exclusive for the 6 small tables close to the window. The courses were tiny little ones just to imagine the taste. The chef refused to serve the pasta sauce on the side for my son, unless he could charge for it (can... More

I have eaten at A Voce for dinner and for lunch on many occasions and I observe to be consistently good, however there was a couple of misses on my last meal there. Their Veal Milanese was oily. It seemed that perhaps the oil was not hot enough when it was fried and so rather than a crispy breading there... More

A stylish venue with interesting artworks and nice street views as well as quite a few places to dine outside, A Voce Madison offers a modern interpretation of Italian cuisine - sometimes perhaps a bit to modern: the Tuscan fish stew turned out to be various pieces of fish on a thin layer of sauce. Call me conservative, but if... More

Staying in Flatiron District

Neighborhood Profile
Flatiron District
Offering many of the city’s best restaurants and shops set amid classic New York architecture, the Flatiron District is no longer under the tourist radar. At 23rd Street is the famous triangular Flatiron Building, which makes a good picture no matter what angle you photograph it from. Be sure to look up at the elegant architecture as you stroll the streets - much of this neighborhood is part of a historic district that was home to many of the city’s most famous department stores at the turn of the century. At the northern end of the neighborhood, Madison Square Park is best known for being home to a famous burger shack, but it can also be a quiet refuge to spend an afternoon, and it frequently hosts interesting public art exhibits. In the lower part of the Flatiron District you'll find Union Square, a bustling crossroads at all times of day and night.
