Spigolo is an Italian-inspired restaurant on the Upper East Side of New York City. Opened in January 2005, Spigolo has gained acclaim from both devoted customers and restaurant critics. Influenced by his masterful incorporation of seasonal ingredients, Joseph D'Angelo's menu represents a culinary union of contemporary American cooking and traditional Italian cuisine. Spigolo is known as much for its warm, intimate atmosphere and its welcoming staff devoted to attentive service and genuine hospitality, as it is for its food. Come experience Spigolo for yourself.

The East Pole, on the Upper East Side, is housed in an historic brownstone on a quiet block of 65th Street. Drawing on old maps and subtle nautical accents, the main dining room & bar is timeless and sophisticated with a clean, simple aesthetic focusing on high quality materials.<br /><br />The menu features simple yet elevated home cooking with a focus on local, seasonal, organic produce and sustainably sourced proteins. For Drinks, our signature cocktail menu & full bar service, with a focus on small batch distilleries, breweries & wineries are all available. <br />

This charming 28-seat West Village restaurant has quickly become one of the city's most sought after reservations. Joey Campanaro's simple-yet-inspired American-Mediterranean cuisine, warm hospitality, and a friendly and professional service team, helps create the quintessential New York dining experience for New Yorkers and visitors alike. Inquisitive guests can peek into the kitchen and watch Joey create his signature dishes, including Gravy Meatball Sliders, homemade Ricotta Cavatelli and of course, The Little Owl's famous Pork Chop.

"The Little Owl is tiny and gets very crowded, loud and noisy. But the food continues to be seriously excellent. The waiter, this time ,seemed to want to push us through in a hurried way."

"Don't know why restauranters need to escort you into an empty restaurant and seat you at the worst table in the place. But Morini did it. So, then you have to say, "no, I would rather sit in one of the many empty nicer tables please...." Why start a relationship with a customer this way? Then the fact that this neighborhood restaurant charges way too much, bothers you even more. And the fact that the chef doesn't cook the food to the desired and specifically requested temperature bothers you more. And so you say to yourself, I'm not going back there."

"Amber is our "go to" sushi restaurant. Not the most authentic; but straightforward and good. On the negative side, it is frequently too noisy and the noise is encouraged by the too loud beat of the "background" music. And, the back room is dull."

Since 1975, BayWolf has been Oakland's favorite neighborhood restaurant, consistently delivering vibrant, world-class food in a Victorian home made modern with its popular terrace and eclectic dining rooms on Piedmont Avenue. BayWolf has several options for those looking to celebrate or meet with large groups of friends or business associates. The dinner menu changes monthly, always featuring the abundant locally-grown seasonal produce of Northern California and utilizing the culinary traditions of the Mediterranean. Additionally, the menu always showcases duck, raised especially for us by Liberty Ranch in Sonoma County. BayWolf remains a home away from home for all lovers of food, art, wine, friends and most of all family, which is who we consider everyone dining with us to be.
