I started going to Uva a few months ago. I can't say enough good things about it. I meet clients there for a drink/appetizer/dinner and everytime I go I have the same wonderful experience. The GNOCCHI is to die for. The dirty martinis are fantastic. The help couldn't be more on the ball and nice. The owners are one of a kind. The bartendar is spectacular. I feel like I am in Italy when I go. It has a very rustic decor and you can even have a party downstairs. Every night that I am there which is 2-3 times a week it is jam packed. I never see it empty. I think they are going to be one of the best on the Upper East Side. There is nothing for them to change. Maybe just to serve the chocolate suffle a little bit ealier. That is the only thing.

Uva is our local place, and we very much love it. It is open late, serves late, and, despite it being busy and often loud, it is a dependable place for me and my husband to go to for dinner. It is a great place to hang out with friends, too -- every friend who ends up meeting me there for a bite and/or wine has fell in love with it. It is impossible for me to go to Uva and not order the polenta tartufata -- it is beautiful and delicious, and I have never eaten anything like it. The wine selection is great, and the sangria is great for brunch or late afternoon. The staff has always been nice and accommodating -- highly recommended for a casual yet quality dining and wining experience.

We began our dining experience at Uva four months ago. The food is fantastic and inventive and the service has been wonderful. We have brought our friends to Uva and they all have loved this restaurant. The pasta dishes in particular are sensational and the herbed crusted salmon is delicious, particularly if you ask for it to be served with the peperonata. My husband has tried most of the main course offerings and he gives them all 5 stars!

The food, wine list and service are absolutely amazing. The noise level is absolutely deafening.

Uva is fantastic- we love eating outside in their back garden- it IS loud- but outside can be a little better. LOVE the gnocchi is a MUST try-- great salads and wine also- love this place!!

If you want conversation with your meal, and are over 38, Uva is not for you. The place is warm and charming, the service excellent, the food average -- but the noise level is way too high for normal conversation. Our party of four rushed out as soon as we finished our entrees, too hoarse to wait for dessert.
