Our party of six adults and two toddlers were quickly seated on a Saturday night. Staff were attentive, food was quick to arrive and drinks were refilled constantly. Besides the friendly mechanics of our meal, the dishes themselves were out of this world! The fish was excellent, my fusilli puttanesca was the best I've had (saying a lot as my... More

We decided on this restaurant based on the good reviews and the variety of options for our group. The inside is very quaint and cutely decorated. We each enjoyed a side spinach salad which was great. The veal Alla sorrentina was great with the side of veggies. I love the option to get vegetables with any entree in place of... More

We were fairly surprised that on a Friday night this place was pretty empty. While that worked out to benefit a group 7 that was in search of a good meal, this place seems like a hidden gem in New York. The service was exceptional, only to be surpassed by our amazing meal. I will be back again soon!

My 17 year old daughter and I were visiting NYC and took my nephew to dinner. Wait staff was excellent, attentive without making us feel like we were being rushed.

I was super impressed with this place. My son has celiac disease, so any time we can find a restaurant with an extensive gluten free selection AND tasty gluten-y options, I am pumped.

Gluten free friendly italien restaurant on the 46th. Offers gluten free pizza and pasta. Was quite excited by the idea. But quite disappointed by the experience. Pizzas taste very sweet and are actually very difficult to digest :(. Service was nice.

My three girls (11, 13, 16) and I ate at Ceci's this past Sunday night. What a nice experience! We were seated right away and had fantastic service. The kid's menu is great, and portions nice size. My oldest and I split an entree and were very satisfied. This is a small restaurant with excellent food and service!

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
