Me and my girlfriend went to Da Nico's one night because it seem to be an romantic place to eat out of all the lilttle joints in Little Italy. The first time was pretty good, my girlfriend seemed to really enjoy the spicy shrimp pasta dish, but my penne a la vodka was only so so. We went back two more times after that just so she can enjoy the shrimp dish. However, every single time we went back, the servers got ruder, the food got progressively more poor. As a chef myself I can honestly say that the food is not worth the money at all.

Delicious chicken cacciatore. It was tender chunks of chicken smothered in a thick red sauce with lots of vegetables. I also enjoyed sitting outdoors in the garden.

Walked in here at 8 pm on a Saturday night, and found the food excellent, and fairly priced. Wonderful special of frutti di mare, with lobster and shellfish, grilled veal chop, vitella sorrento, etc. Complimentary brushetta appetizer and light pastries for dessert were a nice touch.

Well, I hate Olive Garden, and do know good Italian, and have never been disappointed dining here...The pizza is absolultely wonderful, the pasta right on....Everything that we have ever tried is authentically grand...You really cannot go wrong here with anything...Love to sit in the courtyard when weather permits...Go, you won't be disappointed...

The food here was great. The portions were large and very tastey. Lovely garden at the back. I know my Italian food and it was one of the bets places in Manhatten. I hate the "olive garden" and it is nothing like it what so ever. Not a place to avoid anyway !!!

The food was quite poor. I had fried calamari and found the sauce to have no taste at all. I actually thought about adding pepper to it. The same tasteless sauce was on my risotto with mixed seafood. I thought it might have been jarred sauce, but jarred sauce would have had taste. The prices were high, and the food quality was low. I should have listened to my wife, and we should have gone to Pellegrino. There are dozens of options on Mulberry Street, and we wound up finding the one chamber with a live round in it. Never again.

Garden is beautiful, good service but the food is only average at best. The Seafood Pasta special looked large but contained a lot of shells- very pricey. The Rigatoni a la Nona was the size of a pasta sidedish with barely any chicken or shrimp. The Chicken Giambata was delicious and a nice size but did not come with pasta. Adding in a side dish of pasta made this dish pricey as well. Overall we anticipated a great meal and this was far from great.
