After marathon walk around Central Park we found this little gem tucked away on 46th. Very welcoming staff. Usual fare for the genre but plenty of it. Did not leave hungry. I would recommend for families.

We found this place by accident when another place we had initially tried to gonto was booked. What a great turn in our fortune! The staff was nice, the food was great and they were extremely accommodating with our food allergies. Plus, the desserts....amazing! It was an expensive night, but the owner stopped by our table multiple times just to... More

I should have consulted TA before entering this restaurant, but has internet problems. Located in the Little Brazil St, they offer good pasta and beef, however the experience is obliterated by bad service and 'extorsions'. I asked for sparkling water, and the waiter brought me plain water; after I complained, he brought a 1-liter Peregrino water that cost me US$... More

A full family enjoyed the ravioli pomodoro and polo parmesan, Nice and basic good food. We did not like the sea food and they immediately replaced it with no problem. The little one enjoyed the margarita. Recomended , not cheap..

We were looking for a different restaurant but must have walked past it so decided to give this place a try as we only wanted pizza and a beer. ("How bad can it be?!") Turns out they don't do pizza and the food we had (lasagne and chicken Parmesan) was awful. The lasagne was made with chopped sausage and mascarpone,... More

Have just returned from this restaurant and am so enraged at the extortionate service charge automatically added in. It was like think of a number, multiple it by 2 and then round it up some more. The charge bares NO RELATION to the meal and menu pricing. Even with a generous tip it would come nowhere near the 55 dollars... More

We asked the girl outside if they served pizza she said yes however once inside not the case. Huge additional service charge for poor service. Food OK but massively expensive. No prices on the drinks menu menu meant 10 dollars for one peroni. Toilets dirty. Avoid like the plague!

Got stopped on street to try this restaurant - asked if they did pizza and told 'yes, they can make up any pizza you like'. Taken in and offered a table squeezed between 2 other couples with 3 inches to spare (to be seen through the window). When I asked if we could sit towards the back where there was... More

Great location, servers were all very nice. Food wood decent but no wow factor. Had Veal Marsala that was good but nothing special. Daughters Veal Parm was average. Friends meatballs were okay. Portion sizes were good. I'm lucky in that I eat out lots so to compare it was not as good as lots I've had for the same price... More

The service was good, all of the waiters were lovely and attentive and our orders were taken quickly and the food arrived shortly after. The food was good, we both ordered the lasagne for $20 and then finished with a tea each. Surprising when our bill arrives for $75!! We were charged $10 for a bottle of water that was... More

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.
