    Best Dessert Ever

    The food was great, but they have a limoncello tart for dessert that we all split, but we each decided that we should come back and each get one for ourselves. It was absolutely the best dessert I can remember having. We spent the rest of the weekend trying to figure out how to duplicate it so we could make it at home. I don't know if this restaurant gives out recipes, but this is one that I would love to have. I know we will go back there and no matter how much food we order, we will always leave room for this amazing dessert. Thanks to the pastry chet at this quaint neighborhood restaurant.

    Pizza rip off

    On a recent trip to the opera we visited. We did not have reservations but got a table with no problem. I guess I should have known that was a hint. Host was pleasant, waitress was fine. But wild mushroom Pizza was not so wild. I couldn't find any wild mushrooms on it for $25.00. I was very disappointed. Flavor was good, crispy as it should be but only regular mushrooms. If it was only $12-15 it would have been ok but not at $25.00. My wife loved her rabbit bolognese which was the same price. So perhaps skip the ZA and go with the entrees??

    At There Best

    This is one of the best resturants I have had the pleasure of dinning at. The food was excellent & so was the staff, although the only concern I had were the seating arrangements of the tables, they may want to reconsider that durring off seasons.

    Like Gem, truly, truly, truly outrageous

    I had the pleasure of dining at Café Fiorello this Saturday past and it was a delightful experience. Expect a lively pace and an excitable pre-theatre crowd, simply by virtue of the restaurant’s location. That being said, despite the droves of people inside the restaurant, our service was attentive and efficient. Our wispy young waiter was charming and accommodating to the entire party, apologizing profusely for the snarl in the restaurant’s air conditioning. As for the food, it was relatively tremendous. I had the Prime Steak Toscana with Potato Fonduta and it was seared to perfection. My hetero life mate had the pesto pasta, which was off the charts delicious. My progenitors each had the veal piccatta, with the reassurance that all of the veal is procured in the most ethical of manners, ensured that the quality was superb. Aside from the relatively high cost, which like everything else is simply by virtue of location, I would recommend this restaurant for pre-theatre fare or just a delicious meal.

    Amazing Thin Crust Pizza

    This restaurant takes the notion of "thin crust pizza" to whole new levels. I eat at this restaurant at least once a week and continually marvel at how they manage to get the crust so thin (and crispy). Add to the mix a perfect proportion of cheese and sauce, and you easily have for yourself the best thin crust pizza in manhattan. (After having Cafe Fiorello's pizza, it doesn't seem right that other restaurants represent their pies as 'thin crust'). OK, so I am clearly a HUGE fan of the pizza ... but I also have to throw a major nod towards their hot antipasto bar (they usually have this eggplant parm option that isn't fried yes, I was also skeptical at first - but it is so well seasoned you would never know this difference). The ravioli is also amazing (the cream sauce is to die for), but I would stay away from their whole-wheat pasta options (which tend not to have the best texture). Finally, if the weather is nice, sit outside (with the opera house so close, the people watching is hysterical) ... but the inside is nice too (just don't let them sit you to the left of the antipasto bar if you can help it things are a little tighter back that way and you will end up eating while looking at dead carcasses hanging from the cieling (at least you know the meat is fresh) ...

    A favorite

    I've been eating regularly at Cafe Fiorello since I moved to New York five years ago. It's conveniently located within walking distance of my apartment and across the street from my favorite place in the city--Lincoln Center--so I find myself having lunch, brunch and dinner there often. The food isn't overly creative--it's standard EuroAmerican fare--but it's always delicious. Favorites of mine are the filet mignon of tuna, the pizzas, which are always superb, and the revolving risotto choices. My partner and I always create a delectable vegetable antipasto from their extensive list of choices. The service is terrific and attentive, which makes up for the fact that it's on the pricey side. If it's warm, make sure you sit outside. Also, get there early...it always fills up quickly after a performance at the Met or LCT lets out, so make sure that you run from your seat across the seat and get a table. Highly recommended.

    lame

    This place is "good." Nothing to gush about. Outdoors is nice. The food has only gone down over the last seven years I've eaten ordered from there. I order, it's acceptable, but inconsistent and often completely wrong. I complain, they don't care, neither do I, it's blah, it's whatever, the menu is boring, it's only for convenience that I go.
