I like giving this company my business, the staff is lovely and the atmosphere is unique to find in the city or anywhere. The employees consist of a long standing and professional staff. The menu is good although it helps to know how to navigate as some things I don't prefer. Excellent salads, veal, artichokes, salmon, rollatine, pesto dishes, and the shrimp/rosemary app.

I have lived in the city for about 15 years now and have visited hundreds of restaurants. I have never encountered an owner and staff like this. The owner was seating us and the place was half empty, and when my wife commented that we did not want to sit by the kitchen, he said, "the kitchen is downstairs". You can still hear the dishes and the waiters/ busboys constantly passing by your table to get there! Why is he making a comment, just move us to another table in your empty restaurant and end it. This guy is always grumpy, I just can't believe this is the business he is in. It's a shame, because some of the dishes actually have some taste. The prices are somewhwat reasonable too. The pasta dishes are pretty disappointing though and need about 10 pinches of salt to be edible. Listen, you live in NYC and there are a million Italian restaurants. I would spend your hard earned money elsewhere.

This place has been around a long time, which doesn't make it necessarily good. On certain nights, this place is great and can complete with much more expensive restaurants. But lately, the unfriendly owner and his robotic staff have been below par. In addition, the food is lacking taste and for some reason is not cooked properly. I really want this place to be good since it's so convenient, but due to the aforementioned deficiencies, I will never come back here again.

Having lived in the neighborhood for decades, I have frequented Due since it opened. It used to be that a "regular" could call and make a reservation for a party of any size. Not so now. My only gripe. On to the food, well it has gotten odd and overly CHEFFY but is still delish if you don't mind parsley all over your food. Italians USE parsley not dowse their food in it. Still a respectable meal!

Excellent everything! They do nickel and dime you though. They actually charged us to split a side salad, kinda pathetic.

Have dined at all the top Italian restaurants for almost 4o years Had never been to Due, although I have heard of it. Was pleasantly surprised at the charm , cleanliness and great service.Have payed much more for the same dishes at some of the well known Italian restaurants in town and the food could not have been better. The owner was very attentive to all of his patrons, new and old. He made you feel welcome. Will definitely return.

We keep returning as the food is consistently good, portions are generous and the wait staff friendly and most helpful.
