The pollo paillard is so simple yet so perfect! The outdoor seating was well planned. It was so nice to be back at our neighborhood gem.

We are thrilled to have Vicolina in our neighborhood. They created a beautiful outdoor dining setup. The service was a bit slow and inattentive during our recent experience but overall we enjoyed the lovely atmosphere and delicious cuisine.

Get ready for slow, rude service and a financial fleecing that is insulting.
Be sure to google the bottle of wine they try to serve you. I wish I had.
I ordered the only chardonnay on the menu and it didn't have a name.
It was a $68 bottle of chardonnay but was served a $10 bottle of swill.
When I told them that was insulting they offered a $20 credit. Although maybe well intentioned, I won't be going back. Plenty of other restaurant options who respect their customers and are rewarded with life long clients.

The food was amazing specially the veal Milanese. Great cocktail offerings. The outdoor seating is by far the best on Madison ave.

Wonderful service and absolutely delicious food. Best Dover Sole I ever have had. Only issue is that sitting on Madison Avenue can be a little unnerving as cars speed by very closely. Strongly recommended for food and service. Hope that indoor dining will resume sometime soon.

Eating outside in the street due to the Pandemic is not always great, however Vicolina has created a delightful outdoor space that seems like a private garden. The service and food matched the delightful setting

Vico was always one of our favorites, and we’re delighted that it’s been reincarnated as Vicolina. It’s probably a bit overpriced (as was Vico) but the food and overall experience is great, so we just accept the price.

So delicious! If you were a fan of Vico, then you'll be thrilled to see that Vicolina has almost all of the same dishes on their menu. Service was good, food was great, but most of all, the atmosphere of a neighborhood classic is back!

We have been long-time devotees of Vico’s in this same spot so this was my first test of the “new” restaurant and it passed with flying colors. It is the same chef as Vico’s so was hoping for a familiar menu and was not disappointed. The true test for me, of course, was the clams vongole, which was superb. My companion (who was from out-of-town) was equally impressed. Welcome back to the ‘hood!

Food was OK. Tuna tartare ordinary but fine. Swordfish special was very good. Artichoke and mushrooms app fair. Chick w sausages good.
They ran out of decaf coffee. Waited a long time to get menus even tho rest was only 75% full. Then after 15 mins after our orders were put in they come back and said the special appetizer salad was out. So we ordered other stuff. Then they bring the 2 apps AND 2 entrees at same time!! Didn’t really know who our waiter was. Very disorganized but still new. Prices on high side for a casual neighborhood place.
Has potential. They need to get their act together, ditch the white tablecloths, lower prices a bit and be
more casual. Will try again because would love a good Italian neighborhood restaurant.

The food was good but there was a sense of being croweded with insufficient room between tables. not what you would exect in a restraurant that is trying to place itself in the upper level of restaurants. With the olvercrowded tables, it meant that the noise level was qite high.

Also the costs were very high. 'I have never had a relatively simple tr -i colori salad priced at $19.50. The salad was good but nothing extrordinary. The main course was also on the high side and had only a single side, and not much of that.

All in all, its a nice restaurant but overpriced even for UES.

Glad to have a Vico like restaurant in the neighborhood Food and service very good Maitre de a little too stiff Tables jammed in with very little room in between Should be noted they don't have a liquor license so it was BYO . Hopefully it will get its footing and be less uptight.

We had been going to Vico for 25 years and were heartbroken when it closed. So happy to have it back with same chef. It was a little jarring for it to be more fancy, and we miss the regular staff - only one was there, though they’re hoping some of the others will be back eventually. But overall we’re delighted to have the restaurant reopen.
