Stopped by Bello for early dinner this weekend......great food with large portions. Service was very good and they didn't rush. Nice decor, smaller intimate dinning area with cool bar. Thought they might have a larger wine selection though. The only negative was the annoyingly loud fan in the women's restroom.

Looking for a place to Italian we stumbled upon this place. The food is delicious. The staff was friendly and helpful. We went on a Saturday evening and it was noisy. It didn't take away from the experience though. The desserts aren't there strong point. Compared to the food they lacked something. Not too expensive either!

My son and I met here for dinner based on reviews. We were not disappointed. My fried zucchini was tasty as was the accompanying dipping sauce. His Caesar salad was a hit. He raved about the chicken Scarpariello and I was impressed with the veal saltimbocca which was very tender. Service was efficient. I will definitely return next time I'm... More

Had family show up unexpected and needed to make a last minute reservation for seven people at a place convenient to their hotel. The group included an 8 year old, two teens a vegan and a gluten-free. Found this online and the reviews, while mixed, were generally good. It's a small, basic Italian place. I'm guessing it seats about 40... More

We shared a Caesar salad and a veal entree and both had wine. The food was amazing, nice fresh warm bread, salad crisp and fresh, pepper presented as it should be. The veal was done perfectly (some places just can't help making it slimy). We were thrilled with our dinner.

Anniversary dinner that was absolutely great. Service was top notch and the calamari with penne was done to perfection. We would definitely suggest this as a must do when in the city !

This restaurant was everything one could hope for! The food was outstanding and the service was so attentive and elegant. There were waiters everywhere to attend to your every wish! We sat a short while, at the bar, until our table was ready. The pleasant bartender took our simple order ( 2 Bloody Marys ). Then the show began. We... More

I had lunch there last week -- and the grilled octopus appetizer was out of this world. Also ordered a really tasty grilled branzino for lunch. Great service, great food, great ambience and great location

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.
