At Lincoln Ristorante, we offer our interpretation of modern Italian cuisine in New York at Lincoln Center. Our philosophy is simple: to source the best local ingredients and prepare them with authentic Italian methods and spirit. While our location beside Lincoln Center’s reflecting pool is exquisite, with panoramic views and a grass lawn roof, the heart of our restaurant is the central open kitchen.<br /><br />The menu offers our take on traditional preparations ranging from spaghetti al pomodoro to vitello tonnato and simply grilled branzino. Antipasti coax rustic ingredients into dishes with deep, savory flavors. Desserts are beautiful renditions of Italy’s classics: light, lush and irresistible.<br /><br />While reservations are recommended to ensure a table, walk-ins are welcome at our bar where the full menu is served. We are open seven days a week offering lunch, pre-theater, dinner and weekend brunch.<br /><br />

"My wife ate here shortly after it opened and enjoyed it very much, but for me it was a much anticipated first time visit. We enjoyed the decor and the location next to Lincoln Center, but the food was disappointing. I rarely have trouble finding dishes I enjoy, but oddly the selections were not very appealing. The beef, which our waiter said was so good, was merely adequate, and the appetizers were tasteless. I enjoyed my pasta dish filled with butternut squash but my wife did not enjoy her squid ink pasta. Even the deserts were ho hum. If you have a nut allergy you choices will be severely limited. The prices were reasonable for a restaurant that aspires to rise above the crowd. The problem for us was that it got lost among the masses."
