I'd visited the UN and was told by the cops that 2nd Avenue was the place to go for food. I checked out several but I liked the look of this place and my instincts weren't wrong.

It has the look and feel of a classic Italian restaurant with a sharp suited gent (Nino himself?) supervising operations.

More importantly, the food - meatballs, gnocchi with cheese sauce and tiramisu, was excellent. Washed down with a glass of Montepulciano red wine and a cappucino to finish, the bill came to $56.62 and represented good value. The service (by Christian) was also efficient.

Well worth a visit, if you're in that part of NYC.

Apparently, certain New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox have been known to frequent this establishment. The food was terrific. Veal, to chicken to pasta, this place was amazing.

The service here was horrible - worse so because there weren't many people in the restaurant, so it's not like there were overly busy. After sitting at my table for about 5 minutes, I was asked if I wanted a drink. I had to ask for a menu to look at, and then ask for a wine menu. Another 5 minutes before I was even offered water.

The waiter, when he finally showed, was cold and inattentive.

The food was pretty good, but not worth suffering through bad service. There are so many better places in NYC.

Table of 6 for a business lunch today. We had a great experience! Beginning with a wonderful greeting at the door and ending with a heartfelt thank you for going! Appetizers of asparagus, sautéed calamari, mushroom puree soup (2), tomatoes & Mozzarella, and mussels were very good. Entrees of Cheese ravioli, scottish salmon (2), lamb osso bucco, chicken marsala, and a special of sautéed sea bass were all excellent. One minor issue of a late arriving entrée was rectified by the Maitre d' who was on right on top of all the diners to make sure all was right in the world. Desserts of tiramisu, and chocolate mousse, were also excellent (I was told!). Definitely will return to try out many of the interesting menu items I saw. Unfortunately it was a working business lunch so I have no offerings on the wine but the list looked inviting. Another reason to return!
