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.
Friendly and helpful staff, great portion sizes for the price, and healthy wine pours. Definitely coming back :)
Fabulous restaurant with delicious food and wonderful staff!
Absolutely delish!!! Service was great!!!
Great food! Live music added so much to the dinner, the singer was amazing & fun!
Very nice atmosphere. Staff were very accommodating and nice. Got us to our table quickly. Food was delicious and well priced. We would definitely eat here again.
Great food. Great service.
Absolutely loved this restaurant in the heart of Little Italy! The food, service and ambiance was top notch. Absolutely going again and recommending to family and friends.
Server did a very poor job. We ordered appetizers which were completely forgotten, drink orders consistently came out wrong throughout the evening and when they did come out they were delivered to the wrong people.
My very favorite restaurant in Little Italy! Food is always delicious! As soon as you walk in you’re treated like family! The Garden is beautiful-such a warm feeling. Always my go to place when I’m looking for great Italian food in NYC! 🇮🇹 ❤️
Absolute perfection for a quiet romantic dinner for two. I want René as our server every time. He was excellent. My husband can't speak loudly and loud noise is a major concern. We don't care about trendy places, we just want good food and atmosphere. Dan Nico's back garden was quiet, tranquil, had lovely twinkle lights and few people. I would love to see them have more business, but we were grateful for the solace of a 6PM weekday dinner.
Wow that's awesome. Food. Friendly service and great value. A must visit
Nicky runs the best restaurant in little Italy.
AMZING place! Every time it’s better and better.
Extremely good food and amazing service!
I love this place! The service and food is amazing.
Wonderful experience in dining. Food was so authentic. I am Italian and love to cook.
The food was delicious.
Great old fashioned Italian restaurant. Waiters terrific. Food excellent. Ate I. Their patio
I come here frequently due to the consistency of quality of the food, service etc. Once again they did NOT disappoint. I have been to many restaurants in Little Italy but this continues to be one of my favs.
We absolutely love this restaurant and every time we visit New York this is the first place we go. They treat you like family and the food is amazing , some of the best Italian I’ve had. Put this restaurant as a must on your list when in New York.
Our 2nd time around and it was just as good as the 1st time... definitely recommend.
The food was okay but nothing special. It was reasonably priced.
DaNico's food is always excellent. The service is attentive and the staff is courteous.
the food was delicious and the service was good, the waiters were nice and attentive.
Staff and food were great!
Good basic Italian food that brings back fond memories of Sunday family dinners.
Professional and friendly staff adds a personal touch. The backyard is ideal for a relaxing al fresco meal. It makes me feel like I'm on vacation even if it's only lunch.
Amazing food and stadd
Excellent food. Everything we ordered was delicious.
Didnt see our waiter after we ordered so we couldn’t order a 2nd+ round of drinks. Plates were cleared off the table while others were still eating so we felt rushed. Pasta wasn’t homemade.
