“decent food but very slow service”
Reviewed August 10, 2012

Title says it all. The food was decent but I wouldn't say the service was too great. Could be just short staffed but we waited for quite a while.

“Excellent wine and cheese in a lovely atmosphere”
Reviewed July 29, 2012 via mobile

We were actually a bit hesitant to go in as the bar is in fact in the lobby of a hotel, but we are so glad we did. The atmosphere is calm and relaxed and it provided a perfect respite after a long day's walk around the city. We had lovely Italian wine and then asked the friendly waitress to put together a large cheese and meat board for us. We ate it all and even had to order more as it was so delicious :) Definately worth a visit if you happen to be around the union square area.

“Great nook for breakfast at Union Square”
Reviewed June 14, 2012 via mobile

Norcini is an island of peace, flavours and italian reminiscence close to Union Sq. It is ideal for breakfast with tasty bakery but especially with Illy coffee and cappuccino . Waiter and bartender are both very friendlyand always in a good mood.
Forget Starbucks or other coffee shops, spend some time here and enjoy Norcini's comfort at very good prices too.

“Other places available in the area”
Reviewed May 23, 2012

This was convenient, quick, right in the lobby but vey small in area. During peak times, service was slower and staff looked very stressed with the volume of work they had to cope with. When quiet, staff were happy to have a chat and were very attentive. Prices were average and the selection was limited. Plenty of other cafes and restaurants in the area.
