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.

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

We just happened upon this restaurant when looking for a good place for lunch in the city. We were pleasantly surprised by the experience. The food was great, and the service couldn't have been better. We will go back when we are in town.

I had dinner at A Voce Columbus Circle and was a bit worried when I saw that we had to climb three stores to reach the restaurant. It is the kind of place that has as much soul as the mall where it is located. Clean, cold, efficient but you could be anywhere in the world. It has no New... More

But the food is really very very good. I found the waiters to be very pretentious. But the food was outstanding. Portion size was inconsistent. I had the squash tortellini, while others had meat dishes. Their portions were large, while mine was tiny. But it was about the best tortellini I have ever had.

We happened on this restaurant by accident. A very fortunate and happy accident. We ordered scallops with white truffles which was spectacular. The service was excellent and the ambience wonderful. My daughters' first taste of White truffles. A great success!

The food was fantastic, and the service was friendly and very quick. My only complaint would be that as a vegetarian, I wasn't given a lot of choice. Thankfully the dish I chose, agnolotti minus the shrimp was a taste sensation. My fiancé had the roast chicken and couldn't have been happier with his selection.
