Dining at Gente was the one of the best my wife and I had on our short Honeymoon in the Capital Town Of The World. We were lucky to found this restaurant close to our hotel. We did not have a lot of time to search around. But what we found was amazing. Nice, cozy, and romantic place with very friendly . We got table on the window. Great table. Waiter was easy going and not pretentious. We left up to him to decide our diner and he made our evening. Everything he choose was perfect. Fist course, second, third...desert, wine...Just what we were looking for. People, they know pasta. Next trip to NY and we'll be there again. Great food, Great service, Reasonable price

Went there for lunch with some colleagues. Food was delicious but portion sizes on some dishes were small. Service was not bad but not great either. Overall a pretty decent place for the money.

Had never heard of this place before but needed a restuarant near Grand Central. Took a party of 12 there hoping it would turn out good. The food was amazing! Prices were reasonable and the atmosphere was very good. Highly recommend.

Went there for a casual client lunch. The atomsphere is very unimpressive, kinda creepy and "stale." They didn't really get crowded, and I was there from 12:30-2pm. They took forever to bring out our dishes (brought the wrong dishes the first time to our table), and the guy forgot to bring the check after I requested it twice. We both got side house salads and pasta dishes which were pretty decent. I got the farfalle with tomato & pesto sauce and the other dish was penne rustica which my client seemed to like. Overall wasn't impressed.

I just discovered this well kept secret 2 months ago and have eaten there 5 x. The food is excellent. Mozarella is fresh, the rizzuto with asparagus and shrimp is great. I highly recommend it!

A pleasant experience Stopped by this restaurant having read favorable reviews on MenuPages. Restaurant appears closed from a distance at night, but the dim lighting adds a lovely atmosphere to this excellent restaurant. Anyone wanting a decent meal at a reasonable price cant really go wrong here. Staff are friendly and professional. Recommended.

I have been there twice. The first time, the owner was there and had a GREAT evening. A couple of days later went back and the owner was not there, and experienced that service that others complain about . But the food can be good and wide choices, and reasonably priced for location. My daughter went on my recommendation and said Good... so that is a great recommendation. Pick a night the owner is there... what else can I say?
