Our first night in NYC, we wanted some good Italian food and the concierge recommended Cellini, as it was close to the hotel and within walking distance.
As most NYC restaurants, it was small and cramped. Tables have to be moved in/out to be seated. As another reviewer stated, the service was brisk. Almost a little too brisk. But I guess I'd rather that than having a waiter that disappears for periods of time..
My husband ordered traditional spaghetti&meatballs and loved it. I ordered pasta carbonara and it was very good as well.
The one complaint I have involves other people dining, sitting at a table behind us. It was a group of 3 men who were obviously drunk, being quite loud and rude to other patrons. When the woman at the front asked us how everything was when we were leaving, we told her good except for the table of obnoxious men behind us. She told us,"Well, we can't help that", when we told her they need to stop being served drinks, that they'd clearly reached their limit. I don't think it's a great idea to keep it flowing to a table of idiots at the expense of everyone else around them- Not good customer service.
