Il Corallo Trattoria

There are a lot of restaurants in NYC, but I keep coming back to this one for the best Italian food ever! Fresh, pasta made daily, friendly servers who have been there forever. Prices are quite low. Frequently I am the only non-Italian speaker in this wonderful restaurant. I would like to recommend highly, but I am afraid I will never get a seat again.

I love T.C. I come here when it is not busy, an off hour. It is well worth it. Their pastas are delicious, and if you have never had their Antipasto Gaeto, it is the best in NYC. I have been ordering it for almost 14 years, and for $8.95 it is wonderfully delicious and a steal. Try their luncheons, their house salad and a choice of entree. Now if I could find something similar on the Upper Eastside within the same cost range... yea, right.

This is the best Italian food i have ever had. The pasta is freshly made, the food tastes great. The value is incredible. The menu is even impressive . The staff is friends, I wish i could give a higher rating .

This place has great food and is a real bargain for the neighborhood. If you want more careful service you need to pay for it, and this is not the place you want. But the owner and staff have always been friendly in our experience.

Atmosphere is charming enough, although, bad acoustics...a few people talking sounds like a concert. Bread was brought to the table stale w/ no plates, butter or oil. Fresh mozzarella was not fresh at all, the slices in my panino were dry and rubbery. Tomatoes in the sandwich were old. Carrot soup tasted like carrot flavored heavy cream. Service was bad. Server left us in the corner, no drink refills, plates...even the check was difficult to get.

This is the first time I have encountered a hostess (and owner!) whose negative attitude and poor service affected our evening out. We were a group of six on a Tuesday evening. One person in our group came just 10 minutes late while we were eating appetizers. He was then told that he wouldn't be allowed to order dinner! We were surrounded by empty tables. It made us all feel very uncomfortable and my friend remained hungry. With so many wonderful restaurants all over the City, do yourself a favor and go elsewhere.

I've been going to this place for years...but the owner has gotten nastier as the years have gone by. She is incredibly rude & condescending and has no concept of delivering good service. She refused to seat a party of 7 because we were still waiting for 2 people, even though we told her we would order for the others. We waited for an hour and told her we were big party and she told us she "wouldn't even think about us until we were all there." She doesn't not know how to treat people nicely and acts like she doesn't need you because she has plenty of others coming to her restaurant. Such a shame because the food is good. Not worth the attitude.
