I have been in this restaurant before and that was great, but now it cannot should not be called a restaurant. We spend over $100 for a salty lobster overcooked pasta and served with a uninterested waiter....sorry you should close this place

Our party of five had very mixed experiences at Caffe Linda. The fish was good, the veal ok, the pasta overcooked and under seasoned. Our waiter was pleasant and helpful, but the manager/owner(?) abruptly asked us to leave to make room for other customers the second the last dessert was cleared from our table. I have previously had lunch here... More

How can an Italian restaurant NOT know how to cook pasta al dente . . . both pasta dishes we ordered were served with gummy, gooey, reheated pasta. Both the Insalata Linda and grilled octopus salads could have been good had they remembered to dress the salads -- and were tasty after we asked for dressing. And both chicken dishes... More

Lovely ambiance, friendly staff, delicious food. It looked very popular when we looked in the window as we walked by so after freshening up back at our hotel we returned. We were very pleased that we did as it entirely met our expectations & we really enjoyed our meal.

On our way back to the hotel we passed this small restaurant and were inmediately triggered by the cosy looks. I had a very good dinner with my family. Most of us had a great pasta. My wife had a salat which was also very good. We could not resist the menu for deserts. The homemade tiramisu was delicious. The... More

The food was plentiful but it definitely lacked something! It wasn't cheap, the Carpaccio was good but the pasta quite average. It didn't help that they ran out of rose wine too!! The staff were friendly and there was a good atmosphere but it lacked something.

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.
