Description: 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.

This review is about one very specific element: the most delicious ricotta cheese and toasted yummy Italian bread have been removed from the menu by a new chef. This was such a superlative dish and is the reason I brought friends to the place tonight. This place has great atmosphere and service and wine (although no well priced wines by... More

During Restaurant Week, it's easy to find a restaurant to suit your taste buds. But, in most places they are so busy that the staff becomes irritable, and seldom seen. NOT at aVoce, Midtown. The staff are super friendly which makes the food taste even better. No mistake, the food is perfect. The staff are visible, easy to signal, and... More

Heard good things about A Voce, but save your money and tastebuds during Restaurant Week for Le Perigord, Cafe Boulud, Gotham Bar & Grill, Telepan, and a few more that serve their usual delicious food. Unlike the others, A Voce's Restaurant Week menu does NOT have the dishes the regular menu does. I had an excellent poached egg on a... More

Staff very helpful and accommodating, great food & wine, reasonable prices. Roast chicken done perfectly but too bad we didn't choose from the regular menu for better selection.

Ladies & Gentlemen, this is my review number 98 and counting. Obviously this restaurant is being managed by a French man, because once you are entering that place, people are not very grateful if you are wearing a short-pants and a Polo shirt for lunch, but my friend was fine, since her office has a dress-code. Have chosen a table... More

Disappointed... seriously overpriced teeny tiny portions. Service was good --- when it happened but very very slow. They brought out my secondi BEFORE my primi - so everyone is eating their pasta and we are having white wine, and i have my second course first, a steak, and THEN they say they forgot my primi pasta and order it and...

Went there for a business lunch recently. Nice location by the park, good service, great wine list and verry good food. The pea soup starter was good but a little bland, the pasta and pork ragu though was one of the best pastas i have had. Sensational taste in the ragu. Great restaurant for a business lunch.

Okay there is something missing at this restaurant. The first thing I can think of there wasn't much food on the plate. Meaning portions are small and the taste was good but not exceptional. The staff was truly amazing and very nice. I think they need to rethink the menu.

Our hotel receptionist recommended A Voce to us and we tried it. It was an altogether pleasant experience. The decor is modern and clean looking. The restaurant was quiet enough for us to converse in a normal tone of voice, something we particularly value. The menu was large and very interesting with a variety of Italian specialties. Some of it... More
