We were a dinner party of five and found the food here to be below average for Upper East Side Italian. Eggplant parmigiana, a so-called "house specialty," was overcooked - "mush" in my wife's vernacular. Chicken marsala was very routine, as was the osso bucco, and veal parigiana very mediocre. The Caesar salad was virtually tasteless, largely consisting of iceberg lettuce. Service was also below par, with dirty dishes remaining on the table long after we finished. This was our first and last visit.

Situated amid the modern skyrises on 3rd Ave. is a great little Italian, Isle of Capri. Old school servings, service and decor will transport you to the late 1950's. It's not nearly as expensive than the more-celebrated Scalinatella across the street, however the value is up there with some of NYC's best. For aps, I recommend the Carpaccio and House Antipasti. Main dishes, try the Costoletta di Vitello Valdostana (stuffed Veal Chop), or the Fegato alla Veneziana (sauteed calves liver with onions). Finish up with Tiramsu. tartufo, and cappucino.

I am not from NYC but everytime my family and I visit we have to stop and eat here. They have the best veal cutlet ever. The service is great. I will always continue to eat there when I visit NYC.
