There is a neighborhood feel to this friendly Upper East Side Restaurant. Old fashion cuisine, exceptional wine list and warm attentive service. Bottega Restaurant serves fresh, flavorful upscale Italian dishes prepared from the finest ingredients. If you have a special occasion to celebrate, or a business meeting, our menu offers more to choose from. We look forward to sharing our passion for good food and warm service and welcome you as our guests.

"Seated at a relatively quiet corner table for two, service was excellent and menu choices plentiful. Ordered the veal saltimbocca which was absolutely delicious and good size portion. Couldn't have been happier. Friend ordered bronzino and it also was great."

LUCE is a popular Italian restaurant located on the Manhattan's Upper West Side in the vicinity of Lincoln Center. Its creative menu, attractive location & experienced team offer an inviting fare right here in NYC. You will find LUCE to be warm, friendly & engaging experience that you'll be tempted to repeat. All together a wonderful dining experience at surprisingly reasonable prices. <br><br> LUCE's proximity to Lincoln Center makes this a perfect spot for pre and post theater dining. Our terazzo on Broadway is a must try place for lunch, dinner or our popular weekend brunch.

"My bronzino was delicious but friend wanted a pasta with a sauce other than the one it was prepared with and was charged an additional $4.00. Then when the check arrived the pasta was $2.00 more than on the menu. The waiter apologized and said we had been given old menus that did not reflect the current price and he redid the bill. Otherwise I have always been satisfied with the restaurant."

"First time diner at this W. side restaurant. Nice selection of entrees, reasonably priced, excellent service and convenient location. Unfortunately, became very noisy around 6:00 when restaurant filled up with early diners."

Petaluma Restaurant is an upscale Italian-inspired trattoria that has served the Upper East Side for over 28 years since opening its doors in 1985. After closing for a complete renovation in Winter 2013, Petaluma has reopened with new Executive Chef CJ Bivona, formerly the Executive Sous Chef at multiple James Beard Award nominated Yard Bird in Miami, and the Operations Team from The Line Group that has brought you Sons of Essex and Rochelle's in the Lower Eastside and The Raven in MePa. Open daily, Petaluma has lunch and dinner service plus brunch on the weekends.
