Piccola Cucina Spring Street was the second US restaurant for Piccola Cucina and opened in Januray 2013 in the heart of Soho. Friendly service with a buzzy atmosphere, all in a typical Italian restaurant setting. It is matched by home cooking like you would expect to eat in Italy which is one of the keys to the success of the restaurant. Great care is taken by the chef in choosing the freshest ingredients according to season.

"First time at this quaint restaurant located in South Village. Authentic Italian surprisingly delicious. Our server recommended a nice inexpensive red wine which paired great with our meal. A keeper."

Insignia is the newest fine dining restaurant from Anthony Scotto - proprietor of Blackstone & Rare650 Steakhouses. Like its predecessors, Insignia's inspired menu will feature the finest prime dry-aged steaks and the freshest Sushi & Seafood, including Mediterranean whole fish, served up in a chic, elegant atmosphere that is also a feast for the eyes. Picture a historic North shore mansion with cedar shakes, quarried stone and a beautiful turret combined with the energy and vibe of a trendy Manhattan restaurant. "That's Insignia" stated Mr. Scotto, "It's refreshingly unique."

Fine Italian cuisine is what you'll find here along a wonderful glass of wine. Together with a relaxing Italian setting you'll find that I'll be hard not to go back.

"Not horrible just not memorable. Seemed understaffed, our waiter appeared to be the bar tender as well."

Voted "one of the Top 10 best steakhouses in New York City," Nick & Stef's is a masterful blend of ultra-stylish contemporary design and time-honored culinary artistry. Directly adjacent to Madison Square Garden on West 33rd St. at 8th Ave., it's the place to eat before and after concerts and games for succulent dry-aged certified black angus steaks, the freshest seafood and signature side dishes. <br />

"Second time at this establishment both times before a Garden event. Everything from starters through dessert was delicious. This place hops before a Garden event so reservations are a most. Not for you if your looking for cheap, but worth it in my opinion."

Putting a new spin on the classic and often impersonal steakhouse model, father and son team, Antonio and Mario Cerra, have opened PADRE FIGLIO, a new, welcoming Italian Steakhouse on the far East side of Manhattan. PADRE FIGLIO is offering an original menu, impressive ambience and genuinely warm service. Taking their hospitality experience and hands-on approach from running their successful, ten year old Midtown Manhattan, Italian neighborhood restaurant, Da Antonio (157 East 55th Street),the charismatic Cerra duo is excited to be starting fresh. With highly experienced Executive Chef Alberto Argudo (Campagnola, Il Mulino NYC) leading the kitchen, PADRE FIGLIO's menu is sure to please all palates with its vast selection of top quality Italian meats, superb Seafood selections, in addition to traditional Southern Italian (Neapolitan & Sicilian) fare.<br /><br>Located near the U.N. and Millennium UN Plaza Hotel, PADRE FIGLIO is the perfect dining destination for locals and visitors.

"Pre show dinner offer was excellent and unlike most restaurants Padre did not skimp on the portions. Our waiter did a fantastic job guiding us through dinner and his wine choice was great. Great restaurant."

 Dopo Teatro - Trattoria
Dopo Teatro - Trattoria
Dopo Teatro - Trattoria is a unique combination of extraordinary Italian cuisine, exquisite decor and affordable prices. Located in the heart of New York's Theater District, Trattoria Dopo Teatro is ideal for pre- and post-theater dining, offering a four-course pre-theater dinner for $24.50. Open seven days a week, Trattoria Dopo Teatro serves lunch and dinner daily, including Chef's specials and wine pairing recommendations. Appearing deceptively small from the outside, the restaurant's large main dining room, interior garden, wine cellar, grappa library and two additional private dining rooms, can accommodate a variety of occasions - from corporate events to private parties and elegant weddings. The outstanding food features homemade pastas, desserts and breads, and the service is friendly and professional. It's no wonder renowned New York City food critic Bob Lape calls Trattoria Dopo Teatro " Another star on Broadway!"
