This was our first visit to to Uva and we are conflicted about whether or to return. From our discussions with other patrons and our waitress, the sound level is usually high. On our night there, the volume was unbearable as the table next to...More

After walking for about half an hour (the restaurant was quite far from our hotel, which was in the downtown), we were hoping that the place lived up to the recommendations. It did! It was worth it. The restaurant itself is quite small, with option...More

This place is popular. Would suggest that you book in advance. It also has a small open place at the back which is good in summer. Great ambiance, courteous staff and good food. I tried salmon with mustard👍👍👍

The pasta dishes are all very flavorful and cooked perfectly. Everything I've tried is amazing. The Brodetto Di Pesce is so fresh and delicious. You get tons of seafood for your money. I should mention the wine... The wine is also great. I usually get...More

A vegetarian can dine well here, with special kudos to the caprese salad (lots of bacon on the Brussels sprouts, tho). An order of asparagus includes only 2 (count 'em) stalks! Oh well, that's the east side of NYC. Fresh and tasty food at super-small...More
