When the hostess gave us a hard time on the phone moving our reservation from 7 to 8 people we were a bit nervous for what type of table we would get. We were pleasantly shocked to find ourselves in a huge private room. We got there at 8:30 and were seated with in minutes, the service was great, they helped us chose a few affordable bottles of wine that fit perfectly with the food. The pasta was great and the beef cheek was cooked perfectly. I would stay away from the Bronzino though; it is my favorite fish and didn't live up to expectations.

Food like what Robbins prepares should be great. Period. That's the ante of this kind of cuisine and this kind of talent in the kitchen. But Robbins even outdoes "great" at this place. It's out-of-this-world righteously stellar. It is becoming increasingly rare to find a restaurant in this amazing town of food that has the potential to become a shrine to some kind of superlative fabulousness. A Voce is it. (sans the decor - but enough has been said about that already). Go again and again. Welcome home, Chef Robbins.

My parents were in town and we needed good Italian food in walking distance to the Broadway theatres that wasn't mobbed with theatre-goers. I took a chance and brought them to A Voce - I felt like a genius. An airy space with very comfortable seating. Led by Freddie, a team of well-trained servers in black sleathily switched out plates four times as we moved in and out of various dishes. Beef carrpaccio light and lemony. Beautiful beets. Gnocchi well complemented with zucchini. Reasonably priced wines. The salumi selection could be more exciting but it was my only gripe. How wonderful to have a solid place to dine in Columbus Circle without snobbery that appealed to both well-heeled out of town parents and a Brooklyn graduate student.
