I was at Don Giovanni a few nights ago with some friends, before going to the theater. Our server was not good: he forgot an order and mixed up our orders when he delivered them. I had the carbonara, which was wet and had large slabs of undercooked onion in it. I will not be going back.

The staff here is as friendly as their food is delicious. They are professional, friendly and helpful. The food is beyond good. It is homemade and flavorful. If you like them on Yelp and show them they give you a FREE carafe of their homemade sangria. It's right in the theater district and close to an ICON parking lot if... More

My grandson & I had a great meal here before a show in the neighborhood. I had two appetizers: sauteed spinach with garlic over polenta and lentil soup. It was as filling as a regular meal. Both were delicious. It was so good that I ordered another order of each to take home. He had mozzarella sticks with marinara sauce.... More

Choose this restaurant based on trip advisor reviews... Good first impressions, nice inside, friendly staff etc. Decent menu choices. Started with simple garlic bread and bruschetta where you can't go wrong. Mains were carbonara which was very nice and lasagne which was a bit strange but ok. Overall I'd say this place was reasonable but nothing special!

Tried this restaurant for dinner based on its good reviews but was left a little disappointed. The food was average at best, although the service was good. It's not a bad place, but there are far better Italians nearby.

We stopped in here for lunch on our first day in NY. Oh my how delicious the food was! We went in quiet early for lunch but the staff were more than happy to accommodate us. We ordered the Garlic twists (uhh I'm still craving them!) Chicken parmigana and I had a ceaser salad with chicken. I cannot say a... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
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.
