I really wanted to love this restaurant - my elderly father recommended it and I think he recalls it as being one he used to love. It was really no better than average. We had a fig/prosciutto appetizer which was absolutely delicious and we were...More

Once a month you’ll find us in this go-to restaurant. Every meal eaten in this UWS neighborhood restaurant has been delicious. Reasonable portions at fair prices. They don’t accept reservations or credit cards. Arrive by 6 pm to avoid a wait and bring cash.

We rented a condo nearby and we were there based on a recommendation. We were not disapointed. Very local restaurant and food was very good, very «homemade» style.

Had dinner here for the first time, after a friend's recommendation. Good Italian restaurant with some interesting daily specials. Not inexpensive, but cost pretty typical for comparable NYC restaurants.

Walked all across Central Park to get to this joint, recommended by an acquaintance as a "true gem" "possibly the best restaurant in NYC", and "real Italian". I was told they only take cash, but they were willing to take my card (using Square). The...More

Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the
Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a
quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of
downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the
city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the
American Museum of Natural History, which has been
welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for
over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center,
