My family enjoyed our meal here. We had blognese rigatoni, chicken francese and spaghetti with meatballs. The spaghetti was hand pulled and delicious. Wines are a little expensive, but the meal prices are average for the area.

A bit more expensive than we would pay in the UK, our bill for 2 people with a starter, main, desert, coffee and service charge came to $220 which is about £150. I would expect to pay in the region of £90 to £100 for the same at... More

My husband and I were both on business in NYC on the same night, a rare occasion, staying at the Club Quarters Grand Central location. We identified Piccolo Fiore here on TripAdvisor so tried it out. We're so glad we did! The owner, hailing from Abruzzo Italy, has created a menu of classic Italian fare with special spins, like "Mama's"... More

My co-worker and I had dinner at the bar here this week. We split chicken part and one of the house pasta, both were great and too much food. The bar has is own menu with small dishes that also looked great - I will try those next time.

I attended A Dessert Social here in prep for a UN meeting the next day. We deiced to have dinner before the invited guest arrived. As a native Floridian, I especially enjoy Seafood. I ordered Calamari for my appetizer, and paired the meal with Shrimp Scampi. The Calamari was literally THE BEST IVE EVER HAD! That was THE SWEET course... More

I have been following this place for some years now and I still do not understand why NY'ers are willing to pay so much for mediocre Italian food - not to mention wobbly service at best. This place is no exception. The quality of the ingredients is good, and the menu selections are standard. There is a prix-fix lunch which... More

They charge you for each coffee "refill". The waiter hovered around us to pay the check, early on a Sunday evening when the place was only 1/3 full.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
