Always busy, noisy, cheerful, cafe "Fiorelo" have been our dining spot for many years.
Some people say the establishment did deviate from "classic Italian cousin" but I think it's a matter of personal preferences and tastes.
I love Fiorello's mix n match hot/cold grill bar - all type of veggies grilled gently and tossed with olive oil, seafood salads, mix beans and greens.
Be advised that main course dishes are pretty large even by NYC standards (= do not over-order).
Veal milaniese, grilled branzino, pasta, pizza with set or "pick your own toppings"... - pick your treat.
Leave room for deserts, also huge.
No room for a cake? Get a shot of fragrant Limonccello or strong espresso and off you go!
Nice outdoor seating even for colder months (they have heaters).
Not cheap, min $25 per person charge, reservations are strongly suggested for pre-show time (5-7:30pm), especially if you have party of 4 and more.
Tip: I you do not have reservation - ask to be seated at the bar. Not much elbow room but you can chat with barmen and get your food faster.
P.S. Ah, Fiorello's sorbets!
