"I would say we had a very nice dinner. Not excellent but nice. Loved seeing Riboletta soup on the menu. Never seen that outside of Florence. Pasta great. Gelato very good. Procuitto and Mozz to start was not worth it. Bread wasn't great. Wine ok. Server was nice but a little distracted by a table of people he knew well. Might come back."

"T Bone steak was tough. The ravioli was mushy. The fish was stewed it was so over cooked. And all at a high price. The place was a third full. There was nothing good about the meal. A real bummer."

"Hands down, the best Osso Bucco I have ever had. I have been visiting this restaurant for over ten years and have never been disappointed. Always a treat! The only difference on this visit, was the fact that we were handed menus. In the past, I always found it incredibly charming that the Italian waiter would recite the entire menu! You would have to listen carefully to his thick accent and decide on your choice! Regardless, the service was impeccable!"

"The waiter pointed out a pasta truffle special on the menu. He pointed to a line that had $41. When the check arrived they had charged $360 or $180 per special plus $41. When I asked they said it was at the bottom in seperate print. I said no one showed me that and the answer from the owner is that they do not point that out because it embarrasses people. I have the money for a nice meal. I don't mind spending it. But to say we don't tell people when we will charge them $180 per dish is criminal. They were completely indignant. I would run from this place. The food was fine. Nothing special."

"Food continues to be outstanding. At some point, even New York City restaurants will realize that premium service needs to accompany premium pricing."

"Very good food, but definitely too expensive... Even for NYC. Pasta and rise should be among the least expensive items in the world and paying 40 dollars for a plate of pasta is just not right. If it was more reasonably price I would go again, but at these prices, yesterday it was my last visit at this restaurant"

"This place has been here for years and I have visited before. I took a new friend there and she agreed that this is the best Italian Restaurant in New York. We were in New York a week but Li Postino had the best food, nice portions, nice extras, and the best service. I will go there every time that I am in New York."

"We ate dinner on a Tuesday night. Restaurant was busy - packed with the UN crowd. Service was excellent and the restaurant provided a nice complimentary appetizer of grilled zucchini and a garlic hummus which was tasty. Our main meal was good, not amazing, but the prices are absolutely ridiculous - $38 for Spaghetti Bolognese. Nuts. I didn't feel the quality of the food justified the price."
