    The Emporer is Naked

    This place is billed as the most romantic restaurant in NYC. Nonsense! It is tine, the tables are crammed together, it's noisy and smokes pours out of the kitchen into the dining room. Although the food is very good, the prices are insane. $14 for a tasting-sized glass of wine? $60 for Lobster Fra Diavolo at a time when the price of lobster is at an almost-all-time low? And entrees come with no accompaniments whatsoever. Don't believe the hype - there are better values at restaurants all over the city.

    Wow Wow Wow

    My girlfriend and I dined here last night and it was an experience that was quite memorable. The food was on another level quality wise, the service was exceptional, and the ambiance was nothing short of romantic. You pay for what you get here, and I'd pay for it all over again. Fantastic find.

    What's With All the Hype

    I'm quite easy to please when it comes to food so for me give Erminia such a bad review is saying a lot. The salmon was overcooked and charred; the crab pasta special was drenched in some sort of white, cheesy, tasteless sauce that could have come out of a jar. Not impressed at all and for the price I'd rather go to Babbo even if i have to wait hours for a seat - same price, but a universal difference in quality, ambiance and flavor.

    This place was simply incredible. It's a tiny little place that makes you feel that you walked into a small Italian homestead and you entirely forget that you're in a city!

    i went to this restaurant not expecting much since the hype from reviews online were really focused on the ambiance. It's really a date night type of place with the drip candles and the interior really makes you feel like you are in a cabin in the alps. I figured I'd try it out since I'm in the neighborhood. Generally, italian food never really catches my interest. I feel like they either throw on the olive oil (helllo calories!) or the garlic and bam, its passable. I ordered the artichokes to start and the snapper for the main. I was completely blown away with the food. Everything was fantastic and the balsamic on the snapper was unbelievable!! I really can't wait to go back, but that price tag is a bit much for just an everyday typical weekday meal.

    Quaint, cozy and italian

    The location is stunning--it's much smaller and cozier than I expected, but for the slightly cramped tables, there were far more reasons to rate this place with 5 stars than not. The restaurant made up for its close quarters with a quaint cottage-like feel to the inside which made it feel like I was somewhere in northern Italy. The calamari for appetizer was served fire-grilled, just long enough to give it a perfect flavor and a mouthwatering texture. The butterfly pasta with capers and tomatoes was excellent, as was the fettuccine with mushrooms. Absolutely my new favorite on the upper east side! Would recommend over and over again...
