    Great for a special occasion

    What the headline says. This restaurant is good for those once-in-a-blue-moon dinner when $300 for four people isn't that bad, because it's someone's birthday/anniversary/etc. That said, I thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere and the food. It's loud, the lighting's warmer, there are servers and hostesses and busboys running through the very narrow gaps between tables in the dining room. It's a place to see and be seen. Highlights of the meal: the garlic bread, kobe meatball with ricotta, the lobster bisque, lobster diavlo, garlic mashed potatoes and veal milanese (that's not even all of what we ordered). My brother hated his four cheese pizza (oily and so salty your eyes crossed when you bit into it) but other than that, an amazing meal. The dessert was probably the highlight of my night - the oreo zeppole (it's essential fried oreas that you did in vanilla milkshake). AMAZING. I'd do Lavo again, in another year's time.

    Admittedly not Entirely "Authentic"

    But still phenomenal anyway. It might offend the sensibilities of those who enjoy dining in a old world-style italian restaurant - it's definitely a scene - but the service was very attentive, the food was great and the atmosphere exciting. Certainly recommend to anyone looking for a fun night out in the city.

    ups and downs

    Waited for table for close to an hour...gave coat check tickets to hostess who then had the table ready to go within 5 minutes haha...amzging garlic bread, good meatball, good pizza margherita, decent chicken parm, sub par desserts, expensive drinks, so so service...overall a shit show.

    Sometimes you hear about a new restaurant and don't know what to make of the mixed reviews. Since it is so new it is tough to get a reservation so call early. Everyone was extremely nice from the hostess to the server. Had a great corner table for two. Food was very tasty which always adds to the night and the atmosphere was that of a brighter Gemma - packed and loud. Exactly what you would expect from a new hot spot. Try the tuna tartar. I did have to wait a few moments for a table but its par for the course. definitely going back.

    Showed up at 7:25 for a 7:30 res and waited 45 minutes in one of the least comfortable and unfortunately crowded bar areas in Manhattan. Staff from Maitre D on down seemed basically clueless. Crowd was poseurs with shrill voices and too much hair gel. Food was OK, when we eventually got it, which was a full 90 minutes after our reservation. An unpleasant experience. Room is very loud and overbearing.

    good food - subpar hostess

    our experience started off very rocky as we were a party of 10 and they were unwilling to sit us until the rest of our party was there (waiting on 6). During lunch? NEVER heard of such thing! Took us getting rather upset before we were seated. Once seated the experience was quite good. Waitress was very helpful and suggested to scale back our order (d0n't hear that very often) so it was refreshing. Food was good and the atmosphere was on par with any other lunch spot in NYC Not quite sure what others are complaining about when it comes to the food. I would by no means call this traditional italian but it was tasty. The best, No...but i would by no means call it bad or awful. Other reviewers are nuts
