Great atmosphere, great food, good people. All around, a nice place to take a family or a date to dinner.
The food was delicious. The clams I thought were too small but tasted good. They remembered to sing Happy Birthday to my husband from when I reserved on line and asked as a special request. The coffee was slow coming and we had to remind the waiter after we finished dessert. Overall it was a good choice for lunch in Little Italy
Excellent food— we had 4 different types of pasta and all were great. Best gluten-free you can find if you need it.
Da Nico was much too crowded, our reservation was for 7:30 and we left by 8:30pm. We were rushed and our experience was unenjoyable. Food was mediocre, tables were cramped, waiter clearly wanted us in and out. Will not be returning.
Terrific food and service. never a disappointment. It can get loud in the back room, but there are plenty of places to sit if you want it more quiet.
Authentic Italian, old school done right. Great service, great food, beautiful atmosphere.
Our group of 6 went to celebrate our daughter’s wedding. We were nicely greeted, seated right away. We had attentive service, they offered great specials & also amazing menu of choices. We enjoyed everything about this place! To celebrate we were given a round of complimentary Limoncello, a fruit plate and another dessert to share. Highly recommend!
The meal was very mediocre and our waiter was not helpful at all. We asked about the portion sizes and he said everything was for one person. We could have easily split a pizza and salad and would next time -except we will never go back. Dominos is better and that is pretty bad. Very disappointing.
Visiting NYC, will worth the travel to little Italy. One of the best Italian food experiences I ever had. Food was amazing and reasonably priced. Vodka sauce was the best I’ve had. Wine pricing, great value.
In a city where there is some much to try, this place is on my repeat eats list!
An all time favorite that never disappoints!
I marked it was a birthday and they didn’t even give a cake or anything at all
The food was awesome!! The service was over the top awesome!! The atmosphere was awesome!! Couldn’t have been a better dinner with my wife, 2 kids and my daughters friend. Thank you so much!!!!
I’m a regular customer at Da Nico, and I’m never disappointed. During the pandemic, my family did a lot of takeout from here. Now that we are able to dine-in, it’s a pleasure to partake in their lovely outdoor space or indoors. The service is attentive, and they treat you like family. The food is excellent. My family especially loves the linguine and clams, as well as the orrechiette da Nico, but everything we’ve tried is delicious.
Great food! Sensible portions. Great service. Friendly and welcoming atmosphere.
Wonderful family run restaurant in Little Italy.
Outdoor garden or indoor dining available.
Excellent food and service
The service could have been better. They were so accommodating and even gave us a round on the house. SUCH great atmosphere.
Tiramisu and pizza were amazing!
It was one of the best Italian Restaurants in Little Italy I have been to. The Service was exemplary and the staff was very friendly and polite. Great dining experience and I would recommend it to anyone that wants authentic Italian dining.
Good was amazing! Perfect place to get great Italian especially traveling from out of state! Being able to request your favorite, even when not on the menu, was the best service ever! Def recommended!!
Great dinner; seated at an outdoor table. Food was great and waiters were very attentive. Singer entertainment was an added bonus. Only complaint was that the prices of the specials were not listed - I would not have ordered what I ordered had I known the high price ($52!!!).
I’d like to thank the management and staff for another lovely afternoon lunch. My lunch partner failed to show up. However, my delicious meal picked up my spirits. I also work in the restaurant industry here in Manhattan and I always recommend Da Nico to my international guests! On my next trip to Little Italy, I definitely want to dine in the Garden!
The Garden Room at Da Nico gives you a feel of being outdoors without the worry of being rained on! The white clam sauce was a bit sandy but the seasoning was perfect. The chicken special, veal scallopini, and lasagna were delicious! Even though we ordered dessert, we were given a complimentary dish of zeppoles!! We look forward to our next visit!
It was great overall my nephew and niece loved it my dad as well. I had a great Birthday and the food was great and the staff were very good. Definitely I recommend. Would definitely come again.
Excellent in every way!
Graduation dinner for our daughter and trip to New York
Perfetto. There’s nothing like good Italian food in Little Italy for a great evening.
Food was a disappointment. Penne ala vodka is not a hard dish to master.
Angela and family are amazing! Food and service were outstanding.
The service was horrible. Waiter was extremely rude and dismissive throughout the night and checked the receipt to see if we tipped him right in front of our table. They sat us at the table in the very front of the restaurant right on top of the blasting music and we could not hear a thing. Main dishes were great but appetizers and pizzas were subpar especially for NYC. Overall, probably wouldn’t go back just because of the service and noise. I’m sure there are better places with even better food in Manhattan.
It’s a great place.
The food is good, the only thing I did not like was the Tuna (it was not tender, dry and not asty)
Dinner was delicious, portions were generous, and it was just what we were in the mood for- good old-fashioned red sauce Italian. We loved the back garden and the setting.
Beautiful restaurant but the food was awful. The antipasto was poor quality and the chicken parm was over cooked. The reviews are not accurate and it seems like a tourist spot.
We very much enjoyed our meal and our experience here. Great food. They were really busy on the Friday night we were there so it was quite loud but all good!
They were busy but it still felt like we were the only ones there
Food was great, as was the service and a great wine list with reasonable prices. I would definitely go back!
From the moment we walked in and were greeted till we finished our meal everything was perfect. The cocktail martinis were even better than a top Manhattan bar!!!🍸🍸🍸 The food was delicious and the portions were amazing❤️ Will def be returning soon❤️
We had the best meal outside on a perfect Thursday evening. We had a few starters - the burrata was the best I’ve ever had. Buccatini sauce was so amazing next time I’m taking that meal back to Jersey. Service was impeccable. Thank you for a great meal and the zeppole!
Excellent service and comfortable outdoor seating. Good traditional food well prepared. It was good to see large parties celebrating-loudly.
We returned to Da Nico to hear “Francesca” whom we follow on Facebook, sing from 6:30-10PM. Our appetizers, entrees & desserts were prepared perfectly with fresh ingredients. The staff was attentive as usual. The restaurant (the garden, the dining room & sidewalk patio) was full on Friday night, and couples danced to Fran’s American & Italian songs. We had a lovely time! Highly recommend.
