My wife's Uncle, who lives 2 blocks from Dolcino's, took us there last night for dinner. He is a frequent visitor. This was our first visit and it did not disappoint. The food was excellent and the atmosphere even better!

For a fine Italian dinner near NYU hospital, you can't do better than this reasonably priced place. There are no surprises on the menu, but everything sampled there is beautifly prepared. I don't know where they get such amazing tomatoes in Februsry, but you can...More
