“good vibe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

Great place to eat at the bar. Friendly people and great wine and food. Nice bar menu and also the full menu is available. Delicious cheese selections and the little bacon sandwiches ( bacon BLT without the T) were awesome. I also had the ribs with rosemary rub. Perfect! We went 2 nights in a row. After having big lunches, this was perfect for later in the evening.

“Maialino: great athmosphere, great food!”

Maialino: great athmosphere, great food!

I have been there to try the famous Polllo alla diavola and got back with great sensation. Meat cooked to perfection, extensive wine list combined with friendly but professional staff. Enjoy the athmosphere of Maialino!

“Excellent Breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2013

I was tipped to try Maialino by a friend who's in the restaurant business, and I wasn't disappointed at all. Service was prompt and the food was hot, and well presented. I had a simple breakfast of grapefruit juice and poached eggs, and enjoyed the roasted vegetables that the eggs were served with - a creative touch. I could relax and read the newspaper without feeling that the staff wanted rid of me. The decor is light and airy, and the restaurant is joined to the Gramercy Park Hotel. When the manager/owner took over reception, the atmosphere changed a little as he was more extrovert and effusive in this thanks and welcoming chatter.

“Rich and indulgent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2012

We met a friend for breakfast. The food was rich and hearty for a winter morning. We chatted for hours but the staff was unobtrusive and allowed us to enjoy our time in peace.

“The Gramercy Tavern's Italian cousin may be the best of Danny Meyer's restaurants.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2012

How can you compete with Gramercy Tavern, Union Square Cafe and Eleven Madison, three of New York's favorites. Maiolino does and in my opinion may be the best of the group. My wife and I live one short block away and have celebrated our anniversary and other events here. We just spent Christman eve at Maiolino and as usual it was wonderful with interesting takes on Italian cuisine, a lively bar,great service. The one problem is trying to get a reservation. It's a bit expensive, but worth every cent.
