Super cute Italian restaurant in New York. Had a wonderful dinner with work colleagues. The recommendations were great and we had a good time. The waitress was even kind enough to charge a phone for one of us who was totally out of power! So nice of them 😁

Not handicapped accessible. I am still running to the bathroom and ate there two days ago. I had a sweet sausage hero with peppers and onions. It was too salty and the peppers and onions were a little greasy. It came with a salad. I also had water - it was very warm and I had a cup of chamomile... More

This restaurant is cosy, however, the outside area (where we were seated) was very cold in the evening and the fireplace did very little to warm us up. The barman was beyond clumsy and the waiter too busy bad mouthing other customers. The food was good but nothing special. A little disappointed as I booked this for my partners Birthday... More

Our concierge recommended this restaurant as being moderately priced and convenient to Lincoln Center. We had a 4:30 reservation since we had 7pm ballet tickets. When we arrived at 4:20, we were informed the restaurant wasn't opened and we asked if we could stand inside since it was very cold and raining. We were given a "suit yourself" non-verbal gesture....

It was great from start to finish. I was hard to decide on what to get! But we all thought our meals were cooked to perfection! Great friendly service. I thought the Lasagne was wonderful and the Lemon Chicken was grand! Nutella Lasagne & Lemon Coconut cake for dessert, both off the charts!! The only down side was the seating... More

I'm so happy we made the Reservations! The food was delicious, the service great and I felt like I was in my own kitchen on a Sunday night with my family! We ate, laughed and drank as if no one was around us. I highly recommend dining here! Thank you to the Germanotti Family!

We were welcomed as soon as we walked in- the hostess commented on my son's Pokémon hat, which won him over immediately. We were seated on the terrace, which was really warm, then a little cold. It didn't matter- it was decorated beautifully- in a sparkly, homey sort of style. We ordered the Gaga Pinot (Noir not Grigio- my bad),... More

A thoroughly disappointing restaurant experience. The pizza I ordered was terribly bland with major cheese overload and cardboard dough. Garlic gave an unwelcome twist. Moreover the service was insincere, frosty and money-grabbing. The whole place is blatantly riding the Gaga fame wave and has little culinary panache to speak of. Absolutely not recommended.

So warm and inviting. Super charming. Great food. Entree prices are fair, but if you add a glass of wine, coffee and dessert, it adds up quickly.

It was a restaurant we wanted to visit based on being family of Lady Gaga. We were disappointed in that the food was just average and the service was poor. Took for ever to get anything. Thought we were going to have to wait for the place to close and then maybe get someone to give us the check. The... More

Staying in Upper West Side

Neighbourhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theatre performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
