Excellent varied menu and even better food. We’re in Italy every year and the food here typically equals or exceeds what we get there. Love the pasta bolognese, the chicken scarpariello, linguine vongole, the grilled pulpo, and more. The place is small and the food is high quality, but moderately priced. Good service in a relaxed atmosphere.
This Is a gem in the UES. Great menu and really great food with excellent service. This will be on my hit list for sure.
Great food and drinks!! Really like this place
Great food and service at a reasonable price.
A great Italian restaurant, with great food and good service. Specifically, the fiocchi 4 formaggi (aka beggar's bags) is among the best pasta dishes I have had. My fiancée and I come here every few months just for this dish. The deserts are good too!
We celebrated my parent’s 50th wedding anniversary at the restaurant...a private lunch for 17 people. The staff were fantastic in their attentive service and the food was absolutely delish. I highly recommend checking the place out! Thank you Vincent!!
Really wonderful evening, intimate, quiet, helpful and knowledgeable wait staff. Order everything from the specials menu, it's fantastic. Shrimp scampi not so much (dry). Will be back.
Love this great Italian place in the ues. Came twice with the family and everyone loves it. Great taste and execution from start to finish can only recommend it to everyone
This is the perfect neighborhood Italian spot reasonable, friendly and warm environment, quality food. I’ve tried them all...trust me!
Wonderful service, the food was phenomenal! Thank you!
Highly recommend. Small and intimate. The waitstaff are attentive and the owner, Vincenzo, is very hands on. Love their linguine vongolo and fettuccine with mushrooms and truffle oil. And The cannoli is to die for.
The homemade pastas are divine and the beet salad was delicious! A great little find in the Upper East Side!
Wow! We were incredibly impressed with our experience. Wonderful service from start to finish. We shared the Brussels sprouts appetizer and it was delicious. I got the rigatoni special which had sweet sausage in a pink sauce that was swoon worthy. My husband got the short rib pasta and raved over it. We loved every bite and definitely recommend it. We haven't had Italian this authentic since our trip to Italy last summer.
Very crowded. Made a reservation at 8:15 and still had to wait a bit. However, it was well worth it. The staff were working really hard to accommodate everyone. They were also very knowledgeable about the food and wine. The short rib pasta was fantastic and so was the veal. I will definitely recommend and visit again!
I had a very good Dinner there last night. The service was attentive. I recommend the Brussel Sprouts Appetizer. The Veal Piccata was excellent as well. The restaurant was quiet at the time we arrived (6:10pm). The decor and atmosphere were pleasant.
We've been here about 4 or 5 times. Yesterday we shared the burrata with arugula, and heirloom tomatoes. Delicious. Then we had a pasta with shrimp and scallops, arugula and cherry tomatoes. Perfectly cooked and also delicious. I asked for chicken Parmesan, hoping for the best, but expecting the worst. To my surprise, it was a wonderful chicken Parmesan prepared just the way I like it, pounded thin with the thinnest breading, fried, and charred on the edges. It also had the perfect amount of sauce and mozzarella. They also have veal parm, but you might have to ask for these since are not on the menu. Service was professional. The place was quiet on this holiday weekday. It's a charming place. We are now regulars.
We organized a graduation luncheon here for 31 people. The food is fresh and delicious, we had amazing salmon, pastas, salads....each prepared beautifully and the service equally as impressive. Great wine and cocktail selections too! We all had a great time, and highly recommend 83 1/2!!!! Thank you for making our event extra special. We will be back again soon.
So cute and the food is real good. A little pricey.
Food was amazing. It was a great experience. The owner and the staff was very pleasant.
