Came here on a sunday- you feel like it is an "escape." Been here for dinner with crowds and wine but for brunch, enter rustic italy, peaceful, quiet, amazing food and service. Cheese platter was large and wonderful with fruits. The omlettes are CHEAP and big, fluffy and like fritattas- highly recommended. We also had a polenta side with truffle and cream which literally melted in your mouth. Dessert was a hazelnut delight and if you love nutella- you will die. Overall, it was one of the best brunches we ever had in nyc and we eat out for brunch every weekend. Try it!

I have gone to Uva many times and LOVE everything about it however, last Saturday, the music was incredibly loud. We had a large party and it was impossible to hear, even as we talked to the person directly next to you. I will continue to go, but wanted to post as a recommendation to Uva's management.

What a fun spot! Excellent, excellent food and absolutely authentic dishes. Well chosen and reasonably priced wine list (amazing number of selections by-the-glass). Terrific, personable wait staff. Service nicely paced. Vibrant, trattoria atmosphere - a little loud, but not too). No one over 35 in the place, so you feel young and cool. It's like a hot "after work" hangout in Milano. My daughter just moved back to NYC after 5 years in Ticino (Italian Switzerland) and it is her favorite place. Complimenti!

What amazing food and service! We had Emilian style focaccia w/ Robiola cheese & black truffles and the Gnocchi Di Ricotta. We can't wait to go back.

We were looking for somewhere to eat on the UES at 11:00PM and did not want to go to a diner. While the food was not amazing, it far exceeded expectations for a late night meal. We will be going back. Plus we were able to grab a bottle of wine for 25 bucks that was serviceable, but if your unsure what you want or want to spend more than that the wait staff is really helpful.

The Lusardis have provided lots of great food on the upper east side over the years, between Due and their eponymous flagship restaurant, but Uva might be their very best. The menu is filled with joyful food, from the veal cannelloni to the duck carpaccio. The cheeses, bruschetta, and antipasto are always wonderful, and the wine list is phenomenal. Ordering dessert is mandatory. The chocolate salami and frequent special "thousand crepes" cake are both must-haves. The restaurant is often loud and crowded, but the atmosphere is pleasant otherwise, and the staff is knowledgeable and enthusiastic.

My fiance and I live in the neighborhood and dine here frequently. The service is always great - we have gotten to know a few of the servers; the food is always delicious; the wine list is excellent; staff is great at making recommendations; and the atmosphere is warm and cozy. It can sometimes get crowded or a bit loud but thats only because its a small spot. It's unlike any place on the upper east! We have been here for dinner, brunch, and late night drinks both during the week and weekend, and have always had a very pleasant experience. It's my fave spot!
