"Love the old chandeliers and triomphe l'oeil wall decor that gives the sense of dining al fresco in Italy. Love how the windows light up in the evening. Food is consistently good every time that I've dined here. Wait staff attentive. Since it's in Times Square area, it's always filled with tourists...which also adds to the feel of being in Europe. Highly recommend."

Principe di San Daniele, the Italian Prosciutto and Deli Specialty Company, is proud to announce the opening of its first flagship store in Manhattan- Osteria del Principe. <br><br> The true experience of the Italian “Osteria” (Italian for informal simple restaurant with a big counter with great food and wines at a reasonable cost) where Italians meet for lunch of after work in a warm, sociable atmosphere to taste a fresh pasta, a gourmet salad or a mouthwatering plate of authentic Italian deli meats and cheeses pairing with a perfect glass of wine is now open in the heart of Manhattan.

"I returned here on a "regular" week night (instead of a Wednesday music night) and the place was quiet and the lights were brighter. It was the first time for my friends who liked the ambiance immediately. One friend who just returned from 2 wks in Italy LOVED it. Eggplant prosciutto antipasti was delicious. Specials -- risotto with vegetables ; beef stew over polenta; gnoochi with prosciutto were perfectly seasoned and portioned. Bottle of prosecco; dessert; cappuccinos were good as well. We will be back again on a Wednesday night for the more festive atmosphere. Again, the wait staff took too long to serve us, and we had to ask for the bill 3X although place was not full. Still highly recommend."

"We came here on Wednesday night which is their Italian music night (with American songs from Frank Sinatra etc mixed in). With the giant old photos of their prosciutto family business on the walls, and the open kitchen area, it already felt very much like we were in Italy. The prosciutto antipasti appertizer was fresh and well balanced with the cheese. The specials -- shrimp fettuccine which could have used a bit more garlic and well-seasoned pork loin over mashed potatoes. Although the wait staff did check back with us occasionally, we felt that they were not attentive enough. It took too long to get their attention for more bread, etc. and even for the bill and then processing payment. Regardless, highly recommend."

A cool Mediterranean retreat from the city's chaos, with fabric-swathed ceilings and pristine white furnishings. Even on a hectic night, service is calm and competent, and the professional couples at most of the tables seem to be speaking in peaceful whispers. The kitchen offers scintillating versions of hearty, refreshing Greek favorites. Souvlaki is charcoal-grilled and up scaled with filet mignon to produce an impressively tender, succulent result. Wine-marinated octopus legs are also charcoal-grilled, resulting in astounding flavor and not a hint of rubberness. Classics like garlicky skordalia, fava beans, sauteed chicken livers over lentils, and spanakopita are all best-of-breed versions, the latter prepared as a platter of bite-sized pies. A sizeable portion of moussaka, consisting of layers of juicy ground lamb and eggplant, tied together by a superlative béchamel. For dessert, the array of delicate pastries and the deeply creamy rice pudding are excellent without exception.

"We sat in the enclosed courtyard area in the back. There's a skylight, and when it gets dark, lights turn on. They also have abundant, beautiful, fresh flower arrangements set in wall recesses. We definitely felt as if we were in Greece. The food was seasoned and cooked perfectly. The wine was good. The wait staff was attentive. Highly recommend this place."

A Diamond in the Diamond district, a home away from home in Times Square NY, a New Show in the Theater District... A delicious Cuisine with the experience of a staff working together for more than 10 years, to add care and gusto to hospitality. <br /><br />

"This place was an unexpected find. We've walked pass this place for a long time. So glad that we stepped into an old, but wonderful restaurant. Food was delicious. Attentive service. And they were happy to accommodate our birthday dessert request (as well as for the other 2 tables which had birthdays too). Highly recommend."

"We enjoyed our filet mignon very much. The wine was good. The fantastic view of the Empire State Building at night was also wonderful. The waiters could've paid more attention to we guests who were sitted outside, but we got everything that we ordered. Delicious. Recommend highly."

"My friends all enjoyed their seafood dishes. I ordered the NY strip steak at medium, but it was well done; and I wished that the chef had trimmed more fat off. We shared meatball appertizers which were good. The waitress, host, bus people were all attentive. The drinks were fine; and the bottle of champagne was perfectly chilled and tasted great. Overall our dinner was good, not great. Also, it was just a tad bit noisy even though we had the entire back area. It's a convenient, local place for some Italian seafood."

We bring to New York Tusc-Mex cuisine, a combination of Tuscan and Mexican home cooking. These two cuisines complement each other in an exciting new blend. Our menu offers a rich variety of choices, from standards such as pasta and quesadillas to the chefs’ fusion creations that introduce new herbs and condiments to each tradition. <br /><br />At I coppi di Matilda’s, expect to find the friendly atmosphere of a Tuscan “trattoria” or a Mexican “restaurante familiar”, in a playful but stylish setting that is fully dedicated to the chefs’ daughter and the blending of two cultures.<br /><br />A string of words in Italian, Spanish and Matilda’s parlance, envelops the dining space to celebrate what binds the creators of Matilda: the love for food, diversity and family.

"The food was delicious. We both ordered the ribs which were served with mash potatoes. The meat just "melted off" the bone. The orange hibiscus sorbet was also great. Our waitress was kind and attentive. We recommend this place highly. It is worth the "trek" to the far-east village."
