It is perfectly situated between the Met and Guggenheim. The restaurant is nicely decorated and cosy with attentive personal. However I found it too expensive a lunch (pasta is above 20$ and they refuse to have Children sharing a portion)

Rather fussy decor but with a real feeling of anupscale Italian restaurant. Good cleanliness. Attentive service, with a very good wine list, especially for Italian wines. We've eaten here three times and consider it one of the best Italian restaurants on the Upper East Side....More

Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighbourhoods that have
easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural
institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most
livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth
Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of
the nation's most famous attractions in a single
stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the
Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the
