"Wines by the glass are poor. Prices for bottles are inflated above their real worth. Good portions of food, but the quality is average at best. Service is excellent. Ambiance is good. The food should be the star, but falls far short."

"This trattoria brings you to the Italian atmosphere in a nice not small nor too big restaurant.
There was nice music at a gentle level which allowed people to talk without raising the voice.
The service was very attentive. The food was nicely done. They did not have whole wheat pasta as a choice but they did gluten free kind. Prices were reasonable. It is a good place to go if you are in the mood for Italian fare.

"It is a place that want to please and does.
If you desire something special--the answer is yes--we have a kitchen here and a chef.
The service is exceptional, and it welcomes you as a guest.
It is a NY gem.

"Enjoyed a neighborhood spot with plenty of room. Chicken Parm and pasta was good, but not outstanding. Pasta and shrimp was ok. Unfortunately their wines by the glass are not Very good, so had to order $50 bottle of a $15 retail wine to enjoy the meal. They have cheaper bottles, but they are the same as the single glass wines."

"My friend and I were seeking a dinner place in the East 20s and happened upon this one. From the opening of its door to the waiter's response we were pleased with its friendliness. The wine wasn't special but average pinot grigio.
Both fish dishes we ordered were cooked well and especially the bronzini, shown first and then fileted.
There were a few desserts on the menu too.
I liked the area too; quieter than midtown and walkable.
We would certainly recommend this restaurant.

"Location perfect if planning on eating before/after seeing a movie at Kips Bay. Salad was delicious. Meatballs not - too heavy and dried out. Eggplant parm very ordinary - eggplant mushy and sauce tasteless. Fish of the day fine. Casual, and even with a large group at another table near us the noise level was fine."

"We had birthday drinks planned for a bar nearby and looked for a restaurant that would be close by. Most of the surrounding places feature Asian food and we read the reviews on Dolcino so we thought we'd give it a try as it has been a while since we tried Italian food. I'm usually disappointed by Italian when we eat out because it tends to be overpriced and mediocre. Dolcino was neither; it was amazing.
I was surprised there were only three or so tables full at any given time besides ours. The neighborhood is tough for drawing a crowd. We went straight in for entrees which included ravioli, eggplant parmigiana, and the special Chicken Dolcino. We were all pleased. The entrees were flavorful and a great portion size. The marinara sauce on the pasta and eggplant was so tasty- I'm certain to make this restaurant our go-to Italian for it alone. The Chicken Dolcino was paired with steamed vegetables and a small dollop of mashed potatoes. The eggplant was paired with a mixed green salad (house dressing) and a small dish of penne marinara. I think it was the perfect amount of food to enable the four of us to split a Tartufo.
The entrees were around $19.95 which I think is a fair price for the amount of food in this market. The wines were about $9 a glass and they had bottles ranging from $32 to $105. They had a full bar and several wine choices but if you have a picky beer drinker, you might call ahead and find out which beers are available. They have beers like Peroni, Stella, and Blue Moon but not Miller Light, etc.
When we first saw the Tartufo, I chuckled that we'd be paying $8 for a glorified Klondike bar. Again, I stand corrected: it was glorious and totally worth the $8. It arrives quartered and drizzled in chocolate sauce with a dollop of whipped cream and a fresh strawberry. The center has a cherry and it has vanilla and chocolate ice cream inside a most delicious dark chocolate covering.
In short, this place is YUM."

"I eat here on a regular basis because of two reasons. The location, 29th and Second, and the consistently fresh food prepared daily. This neighborhood has only a few restaurants and most are either have a Turkish or Asian flare. If you are looking for standard Italian fare, this place is highly recommended."

"Delicious food, generous portions, excellent service.
The three of us shared everything -- one appetizer and two entrees left us quite satisfied (alas, with no room for dessert!).
We started with an appetizer of eggplant rollatini -- creamy, flavorful, perfect. Then a special pasta of the day: wholewheat spaghetti with salmon -- tasty and light, followed by the whole fish of the day, filleted and served with some vegetables. We drank a lovely Chianti.
The waiter was charming and attentive, paced everything just right.
This was our first visit -- we were looking for something in Kips Bay near the Clarion Theater and were happy to discover this place via Open Table. We look forward to eating here again.

"This find on second avenue and 29th street has become my daily lunch spot. It provides solid classic Italian food and the lunch menu has it all. If looking to find something in this area, I highly recommend you give it a try."
