We have dined at this restaurant for many years and each time we are in NYC we make a point of dining here. The food is great, proportions are excellent and prices are very reasonable. The restaurant is cozy and the wait staff is very professional and friendly.

Family owned, small restaurant, cozy seating, right on the sidewalk, but inside - away from the hustle and bustle and cold weather. Very good service. Everything explained. Good menu, not too many specials to remember. Food was excellent. Fish delicate and mouth watering. Veal so tender the fork cut it! Terrific selection of wines and dessert and cookies great. We...

This is a gem of a restaurant. Great food, great wine, fabulous atmosphere and equally fabulous staff. We just asked our host to order for us and we were not disappointed.

The food is first rate and the staff engaging. The decor is dated, but somewhat funky and plan to have fun with it. Been there multiple times on multiple trips to NYC. The Veal Saltimbocca is perfectly prepared. There are a lot of Upper East Side regulars there, and even as a frequent out of town diner, they make me... More

We visited spontaneously, and were refused seating in the main dining room--had to sit in colder, outer perimeter. The reason given was that the inner tables were reserved. Of course, 2 hours later, there was no one there. Asked for wine list twice, water once. Wait staff distracted. Lentil soup watery but had flavor. Certainly not the best. Bolognese subtle... More

Every dish was perfect from start to finish. And it was comfortable and not cramped like other NYC restaurants

The food is good, the service is a little pushy, it is not cheap... If you live in the neighborhood and money is not an issue, fine. Otherwise if you are hungry and walk by it, fine too.

The Isle has been a favorite haunt for many years. We were somewhat apprehensive hearing that management had changed. GOOD NEWS! The food is still impeccable and generously portioned. The staff are even more attentive than before. Delicious, authentic, always a pleasure. The former owner's wife still greets guests on a regular basis.

Although it opened in 1955, this was my first time to visit this charming italian restaurant on New Yorks upper east side. From the moment of walking through the door for lunch, I was greeted warmly and shown to my table where I could wait for the rest of my party to arrive.. The service was excellent and when i...

Last night we dined at Isle of Capri NYC . This was our first time there and won't be our last. The food was amazing. all 4 of us had completely different meals and each was better than the other. We actually ate off each others dishes. The only downside was the seating is tight, but real estate in NYC... 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.
