"The meal and service was fantastic. The waiter told us we could request the Heritage Chicken at lunch if we called in advance. When I called to confirm our reservation, the person did not check with anyone and just said "no, we can only serve what is on the menu". I cancelled our reservation. Danny Meyer restaurants are wonderful and accommodating. This experience was not the usual and my husband and I are VERY disappointed."

Maialino is a Roman-inspired trattoria from Danny Meyer’s Union Square Hospitality Group, located in Gramercy Park. Maialino captures the warmth and comfort of a true neighborhood trattoria, with a menu that celebrates the restaurant's ongoing relationship with its local family of farmers and suppliers. Executive Chef Nick Anderer draws inspiration from the Roman cooking tradition to create soulful food, reflective of the rich culture of both Rome and New York.
