Was there with some friends last nite. First of all, hats off to all the servers. They were wonderful and certainly earned their tips. I hope management appreciates them. Noisy and crowded - hard to carry on a conversation. It was very busy for a Monday night. It doesn't look like a kosher restaurant, which can be a good thing. The food was mediocre at best. (I had gnocchi with mushroom sauce - hardly any mushrooms at all and they tasted as if they came from cans.) "Cigare" appetizers were greasy and the marinara sauce was not what your noni used to make. The cheesecake dessert was o.k. but for $8 a rather small piece (but after a plate of gnocchi who needs a big dessert?) Coffee (regular brewed) was the BEST I have ever had anywhere. Good wine too, recommended by waiter, but too expensive at $28 a bottle. The pasta dishes were stuff that you could make at home for about $1.25 and the price was more than ten times that much. And it's not like you're being served in elegant surroundings with linen tablecloths and chamber music. Nobody at my table ordered the fish (very expensive) , but at a table near us, it smelled yummy. I might go back if I need to go to a kosher place near Lincoln Center, but I was pretty under-whelmed.

We are a young family of four - we ordered 2 pasta dishes, 2 salads and a little cigar appetizer, and our meal was $60. The pasta portions are tiny. There was barely any sauce on them. We felt we were eating plain bland noodles. The salads are pre-made for delivery. The bread which comes with the order was stale and they packed tons of it. We were very excited to get our food, and we always give this place another chance, but this was a huge dissapointment. We have ordered pizza in the past, and it was good - so maybe we'll just stick to that.

My biggest beef with kosher restaurants (though slightly less so in NY, I suppose) is how much they can get away with. Bland food, boring menus, and most of all - absolutely no ambiance or decor. My favorite thing about Noi Due is that it counters all of these stereotypes. The restaurant is pretty. The food is somewhat creative, and very attractively plated. Going here feels like a treat. The prices are a little high, but this is my favorite kosher restaurant in NYC.

Especially for a kosher place, the food is great and so is the service! The food comes very quickly and its very reasonably priced. The sandwiches are really the best!!

Great place to go if you're going to Lincoln Center! Great to go if you just want a good Italian meal. The food looks great and the taste does not disappoint.

Not being religious, and having eaten here before, I decided to pop in before my movie and get a slice of the margarita pizza that they make so well. After being told that they don't serve individual slices (unfortunately), I decided on an avocado panini (with a little help from a helpful waiter). It was absolutely delicious. I usually don't like dairy restaurants because their food isn't filling, but it tasted so good that I didn't mind, and it was pretty reasonably priced to boot. On top of that, the nana iced tea lemoade I got with it was VERY refreshing. This place is worth the price if you're into dairy.
