Cafe Fiorello

Time Out says

Lincoln Center audiences have been tucking into satisfying pre- and postshow meals at this roomy trattoria since the ’70s. The candlelit, wood-paneled dining room, with its many mirrors and brass rails, doesn’t appear to have been updated much since then. The usual suspects are on hand: extravagantly buttery fried artichokes, pastas (like the signature “open face” lasagna) and pizzas, including a four-cheese and honey version. Don’t forget to ask for a side of hot chocolate sauce to drizzle over the creamy cheesecake.

Café Fiorello has been serving amazing Italian food in the Upper West Side since 1974. It is perfectly situated across the street from Lincoln Center, so if you are going to the opera, ballet or the philharmonic, be sure to stop by for a meal either before or after. The brunch includes the fluffiest buttermilk pancakes that are so delicious you don’t need to add maple syrup or butter. For vegetarians, there is an outstanding antipasto bar with freshly made puff pastry vegetable part, zucchini parmigiana, charred broccolini, quinoa salad and much, much more. The pasta, salads, pizza and omelets are all courageous as well.


I've been here twice now and I love it. The food (I got the ravoli pesto) the ambiance everything. It feels like old school New York (not that I have anything to compare it to). It's always bustling super cozy and conveniently located off the 1 and even though I live in the East Village I would always make a trip to come up here. Plus it's one of the restuarants near Lincoln center that doesn't charge a month's rent for a meal.
