Felidia is located in a converted Brownstone on 58th Street between 2nd and 3rd Avenues. Opened in 1981 by Lidia Bastianich, Felidia offers a warm atmosphere where you can still find Lidia greeting guests and fans. <br /><br />Executive Chef Fortunato Nicotra has been with Felidia since 1996 and has brought an innovative touch to traditional ingredients and dishes from all the regions of Italy. <br /><br />Some of the restaurant's signature dishes include pear and fresh pecorino ravioli, veal shank ossobucco and limoncello tiramisu. <br />Felidia also offers a delicious three course price-fixed lunch, Monday - Friday for $29.50 per person, making the restaurant great for business lunches or just a nice afternoon treat. <br /><br />For parties of 8 or more, Felidia offers our group dining menu rather than the a la carte menu. The group dining menu is a five course menu and includes our most popular dishes and seasonal favorites for $95 per person.<br />

"My lunch at Felidia's was fantastic.
The pappardelle with duck was delectable. The Branzino was perhaps the freshest and most flavorfully prepared fish ever.
The Tiramisu was so creamy and melt in your mouth delicious.
The setting is beautiful and service excellent. I want to recommend it to everyone who appreciates the best in dining.

PLEASE CALL THE RESTAURANT IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN OUR BMF (TASTING MENU) EXPERIENCE<br />The Natirar Estate, a nearly 500-acre site atop the mountains of Peapack, is the home of Ninety Acres Culinary Center, which consists of a cooking and wine school, and a restaurant offering unique and exciting menus featuring produce and livestock fresh from the estate farm. The restaurant, along with our private party facilities, redefines what a quality dining experience can and should be. We offer an a la carte menu in our dining rooms, a light bar menu in our bar and lounge areas, and the "Bring Me Food" experience, our interpretation of the tasting menu concept, exclusively in our kitchen dining area.

"My husband and I celebrated my birthday here and agreed that it was one of the best dining experiences ever.
The setting is magical and magnificent; it was hard to leave the beauty of the restaurant, outdoor patios and lush estate grounds.
Our wine and cocktails were exceptional. The wine list is tremendous and the sommelier was helpful but in no way intrusive.
Every staff person was friendly and helpful and made us feel special. Each one of them seemed passionate about what they do.
The tasting menu is filled with the freshest most flavorful locally grown vegetables and clean fish and meats and the herbs and spices and food combinations melted in our mouths at every course. The chef is a genius;I highly recommend this culinary treasure.

"I have dined at this restaurant several times now and love bringing guests to experience this beautiful setting and the fresh and clean food they serve. The crude is to die for especially the lobster one. The salads are fresh, pizzas are crispy and flavorful, and the pasta combinations excellent.
I truly love sitting in this magically beautiful room day and night even for sitting and sipping a glass of wine.

"Annisa is a special occasion dining experience with outstanding food, wine and service.
We ordered the tasting menu and each course was filled with wonderful flavors and textures.
The sommelier was attentive to our description of what we love in a wine and suggested the perfect bottle.
The room is quiet and serene which set the stage for a perfect evening of excellent food, wine, and conversation.
