I am being petty. I like to be casual when I am not working. I walked in with a reservation and was looked up and down like I did not belong. Put us by the waiter door. Talked to us like we had never seen...More

This was going to be a quick easy dinner before a show at the Welmont. We were blown away by a great meal. The ambience was wonderful and the food was exceptional

The waiter ignored us and we were there for 2 hours before our meal came. We had to complain to the manager and even then he didn't refill our water.

My wife and I went here for the first time recently. The service was very good and the ricotta gnocchi was superb. Our appetizer was one of the specials: pork belly with a citrus fruit, and we weren't big fans. Our dessert was also underwhelming:...More

I cannot praise Fascino enough for the wonderful service, hospitality and not to mention absolutely authentic and amazing Italian meal. We were celebrating my parent’s 50th Wedding Anniversary and we had a large group on a busy Saturday evening. From the minute we contacted the...More

We were greeted warmly and coats were quickly checked. The service started great with a very accomplished waiter - from then everything slowed down to a crawl. Sure, it’s good not to be rushed, but it’s also nice to order within 1/2 hour of receiving...More

It's difficult to find consensus among six foodies, even at some of the best restaurants in NYC. Our party agreed that last evenings dinner on a busy Monday evening was no less than superb. Seated in a quiet banquette away from the main dining room,...More

Description
"The atmosphere of Fascino, with its minimalist cream and deep red decor, borders on stark but not casual. The complexity's in the entrees, where flavors, scents and textures fuse seamlessly. Puree of kobacha squash soup with oregano crema and hazelnut oil wins the intriguing appetizer award, and the paper-thin sheets of beef carpaccio with truffle oil and petite salad are a beef purist's dream. Pastas, risottos and raviolis are all available as appetizers or main courses, but the duck breast with confit cannelloni and black fig compote or pine nut-crusted codfish might be hard to pass up." -- Mike Hess, AOL Digital City
