This is a restaurant where the food is so perfectly seasoned you don't even look for salt and pepper on the table. Entrees about $25-$36. Well worth it for a special night out. Only about 12 tables. The pastas are so perfectly created. The wait staff is worthy of note too. Parking garage available right next door (accepts Spot Hero... More

Chose this place to eat before going to an event at Met Museum, only a block away. Four of us, and we all enjoyed our meals. Squid ink pasta dish was excellent, tuna appetizer excellent, and the lump crab in pasta with saffron sauce - all terrific. We ate rather early before the crowd - service was prompt.

Just off Museum Mile, and a few steps from the Metropolitan Museum, this warm, elegant and cozy traditional Italian serves first class food in wonderful surroundings. Have been there several times and it has never disappointed. The carciofini with pistachios and the pasta with boar ragú are excellent. The service is outstanding: attentive without being overbearing. The wine list is... More

We enjoyed the $29 Prix Fixe menu in the afternoon after a fabulous morning at the Met. Delicious Italian fare. Well worth it.

Overpriced,claustrophobic,rude service. With all the exceptional restaurants within a five minute walk this is the last place you should go.

Last night we took our chances at a couple of favorite bars but they were too crowded, and we walked up on a cold and windy night to 83rd Street where Giovanni's once again provided a pleasant evening. Two glasses of champagne to celebrate my companion's ongoing recovery from pneumonia, and the quite a decent meal. Her salad was very... More

Our last experience here wasn't as good as last year -- service was still attentive and the decor and cleanliness were both excellent. The food, not so much, varying from too much sauce and spice with the fish dish and too little taste for the veal. The food trumps other advantages of the restaurant: close to the Met, a "hushed"...

This is the quintessential "neighborhood restaurant" with a style and panache that is surprising. Ate dinner here with friends. It's small inside, very intimate spaces, but welcoming because of the great staff, who made us feel very good from the moment we walked in. We enjoyed a tasty bottle of Chianti, and thoroughly ransacked the menu for all kinds of... More

Staying in Upper East Side

Neighborhood Profile
Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighborhoods that have easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of the nation's most famous attractions in a single stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the neighborhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.
