On Tues June 14, on our way to Sparks Steak we saw a sign Nanni. Having been a customer of Luigi Nanni Ill Vallatoon East 61st. We decided to stop in on Nanni East 46th st. Thank God we did. It had the same decor.littlr smaller yhan 61st. But the menu was the same great good, pasta, veal red snapper, out of dover sole . Once I mentioned to Mgr that I was a customer on 61st till Nanni did thet gave us the best meal we have had in NYC for the last 10 visits. We are so happy that our walk to Sparks was on the same street. The prices were very reasonable. So thanks we will return on our frequents to the city

Its nice to go to an Italian restaurant in NYC and the waiters actually speak Italian.Ive been dining there for over twenty years the food is fantastic the service is very good and the owner Vittorio is a gentlemen.Let the waiters order you the apps and don't leave New York without trying the best veal chop in North America,i promise you that.great food and service.

Haven't eaten here for a while and thought we'd try it for my wife's birthday. It was a Friday night and the place was full. The waiter was an older gent who turned out to be quite a piece of work. There were eight of us and we wanted to order a bunch of appetizers to share family style, but he kept wanting to push us to order enough of each appetizer for 8 people. For example, only one in our party wanted the caeser salad @ $19, but the waiter wanted us to get 8 orders. We told him no, we only wanted one. This went on through the whole appetizer ordering process. This guy is either really thick or he was trying to inflate the bill and his tip. To the chef's credit,I have to say the food was good , except for the salty(anchovies) and small $19 caeser salad. The fish dishes were very well prepared as were the pasta with nanni sauce. The small veal chop , though good, cost more than a steak at Luger's or Sparks. We're not big dessert eaters, so we ordered a couple of desserts to share and they gave my wife a piece of chocolate mouse cake for her birthday. Don't bother with the coffee, as it was tasteless.. Finally, when we got the bill , we pointed out to our waiter that we were charged for something that he forgot to bring (sausages). Instead of apologizing and taking it off the bill, he said matter of factly that my wife got a piece of cake which would offset it. Considering that our bill was pretty hefty (we also had wine and cocktails) ,that conceited attitude was the last straw. We do not plan to eat there again.

We are cruise addicts, and have sailed out of New York several times. One one of our first visits we found Nanni’s and it is now our favorite restaurant in NYC. We love it so much that we have schlepped four suitcases and assorted hand luggage straight from the airport into the restaurant for a delightful repast prior to boarding our ship. We try to schedule a meal there even if we will only be in town for a few hours. The staff treats us like long lost family, and we are sincerely sorry we live on opposite sides of the country! Ah, for some of that wonderful Nanni Sauce!

After reading the reviews and desperately needing some risotto for lunch, I called to order for takeout today and was told, at 12:05 PM, that it was "too late" to get takeout. WHAAAA????? Oh, well. I'll have to find somewhere else to spend my $30. Stupid move, Nanni dude.

We visit NYC frequently and eat at Nanni's every chance we get. Reasonably priced excellent Italian food. First time there Geno said to only choose your entree as he will bring everyone the appitizer (Tri Raviola in Nanni sauce). It was wonderful and I am still trying to equal Nanni Sauce at home. It is a Vodka Sauce with plenty of Parasean. Also, their desserts are great. You can see us enjoying dinner there whenever we are in town.

Nanni Restaurant has been around since 1968 and is concidered by many in the restaurant industry as the "grandmother" of all Italian restaurants in New York City. Nanni Restuarant was established by the late great Italian chef "Luigi Nanni" and the remaining original staff continue his legacy with great traditional Italian dishes and fantastic service. I have eaten here many times and the food and service is incredible. You must try their signature dish "Cappellini alla Nanni" which has a very tasty unique sauce. Nanni Restaurant is a must if you love great traditional Italian food.
