With a focus on local products and seasonal produce Nick & Toni's Cafe Manhattan prepares fresh food simply. We source locally whenever possible and shop the NYC Green markets with twice-weekly visits to our neighbors at the Tucker Square market and others the including Union Square and Ft. Greene markets.<br /><br><br> The wood fired oven puts out perfectly crispy pizzas everyday at lunch and Sun-Thurs at dinner. Friday & Saturday nights be prepared for a special treat because, although there are no pizzas, many house specialties such as the Roasted Chicken, Whole Fish of the Day, or Scallops are prepared in the wood oven.<br /><br><br> We have a diverse and high quality selection of wines by the glass, and a moderately priced wine list. We also feature a full bar and an extensive cocktail list including a number of house infused alcohols that suit the seasons. <br><br> ** For reservations of parties of 5 or more please call the restaurant directly.

"There was a little glitch with our reservation, but the manager handled it as well as possible. We really enjoyed the pizzas and zucchini, and the pork chop was delicious"

"this restaurant is usually noisy and packed, so I was a bit surprised that last saturday it was not busy (oh, the joys of the city when everyone leaves for the weekend!). Since the weather was cooler, we were able to sit outside and had a pleasant, if somewhat unmemorable, meal. I had the pasta bolognese, my friend has the pasta special - both nice dishes, but non-spectacular (confession - I eat at Lupa often, so my pasta standards have been elevated)"

"because summer days in central park just call out for margaritas, we dined at santa fe for the second time in a week. the food is always good and consistent, this time it went beyond. the salmon special with pipian sauce was as good as anything served at coyote cafe (one of new mexico's uber-standards of southwestern cuisine)"

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.

"We used to eat at bottega once or twice a month when it opened. Our last couple of meals were disappointing, so we hadn't dined there since the winter. As we like to support our local places, we decided to give it another try. Clearly a mistake. My special squid ink pasta was bland and soggy, and with flavorless fish.It's as if they don't season the food at all. The swordfish was ok, and the avocado salad was nicely dressed. Shocked that my salad fork was returned to the table for reuse ( I had left it on my plate)."

"we decided that Saturday was the perfect summer evening to sip margaritas at the bar of Santa Fe. I tried the blood orange, which was nice and tart (not gooey and sweet as flavored margaritas tend to be). The crab cakes and steak fajitas were delicious too!"
