We visited here because it was recommended on Trip advisor and really pleased we did. In fact we came here twice. Most of the menu is available Gluten Free and a large choice including sweets. Also was pleased to find they had cider in stock...as it had been difficult to find in NY. The Manager and waiter couldn’t be more helpful. The food, by the way, was great and if we visit again this restaurant will be high on our list.More

I was looking for an Italian restaurant after the museum on a Friday night. I did not have reservations but was able to be seated rather quickly. The menu had a lot of great choices. My dinner was really good. The service was great. I...would definitely go back.More

We had no reservations and almost no wait time for a party of 7. Food was excellent and they even sang to my son for his birthday. Lobster ravioli was superb.

We had a wonderful time at this restaurant! The food was great and the people who worked there even better! As soon as our glasses with water were even close to being empty a server was there to refill them. The food was amazing, and...they had plenty of gluten-free and vegan options to choose from, which was wonderful. I would wholeheartedly recommend this place to everyone who wants great food and great service!More

I picked Ceci’s based upon reviews and proximity to our hotel! They actually seated us early and in spite of a mistake with the reservation. The food was superb and the service was excellent! Everyone enjoyed their meal! My husband said the sea bass was...the best he ever had! The atmosphere was warm and cozy! All in all a great find and we would definitely go back!More

We were hesitant upon entering the restaurant due to strange aroma but in the end the food was delicious and we were happy we stayed. While not that large of a restaurant our table was towards the back and comfortable. The prices were reasonable for...NYC. We would definitely go back again when in the area.More

Made a reservation for the same night we booked. Arrived 1 hour early and were seated within 20 minutes. Friendly staff, and fast service. Yes it's a small restaurant but the food was delicious. As a full blooded Italian, I can honestly say the sauce...was delicious. Definitely home made.More

Booked online after reading good reviews online. We ordered starters yet one came out 20mins before the other. The waiter disappeared for 15mins at a time down the other end, when asked another waitress for assistance she wasn't interested. My partner ordered a mozzarella dish...expecting a ball of mozzarella which was in fact a toasted sandwich with mozzarella. I ordered the calamari horrid tasteless the sauce was vile. My main was cheese pasta..which chicken was added too not by me. I do not eat chicken but as its xmas I thought I wouldn't mention this to not offend the waiter. The pasta was dry horrid to be honest no taste at all and I tried to avoid any pasta with chicken. My partners main was pizza. It came out tiny, you could tell it was frozen by the lines on the bottom and it was soggy. He ate around the edges. The best bit of the meal was the chips. Crazy as the restaurant had a great buzz and busy queues. I wouldn't recommend it tbh. A shame as we expected so much from the reviews.More

We had a large party that was planned with Diego and in the wine room. The service was excellent from start to finish. It was a great option for us, as we saw a show and then walked to the restaurant for an early dinner....We had a set menu for choices for the entree and it was for a lot of picky eaters! Everyone enjoyed it and the food was great.More

so we went here with high hopes before going to a broadway show and we were very disappointed to say the least. the waitress was busy with larger parties so we didnt feel welcomed but that would of been fine if the food was good....i tried asking her for her opinion on a couple of dishes but again she was rushing but said she would go with the gnocci with meatsauce. and all i can say is WRONG CHOICE. no meat in the meatsauce and the gnocci were tough and chewy. my husband got veal parmesian and said he has had much better. even the cannoli was subpar. the only thing that was great was the bread and butter.More

Yes, we have a 12 year old grandchild w Celiac disease. The staff was knowledgeable. As I remember all the pasta sauces were GF but the pasta itself was limited to spaghetti and penne ( I think)

They are a quick walk up a few blocks. Take 6th Avenue to 46th turn right and they are right there. You will not be disappointed with this place.
