I absolutely love this place! It was by far one of the best dinners I've ever had in the city. The atmosphere was wonderful - a cute little one-room restaurant with a giant exposed wood-burning oven that makes the lighting in the restaurant so nice and romantic (I live for restaurant atmosphere). The food was to die for. My boyfriend and I split the Gambero (shrimp and chorizo) appetizer (which was DELICIOUS) and he ordered the rib-eye steak while I order the chicken. Now this place is certainly not known as a steakhouse, but I tasted the steak and we can both honestly say it was easily one of the top 3 best steaks we've ever tasted. We even told the waiter this and he laughed and said they actually get told that often. My chicken was amazing and the portion sizes were unbelievable, yet so good we ate it all! When dessert time came around, we were excited to order the cheesecake but disappointed to learn that it was no longer on the menu (although our waiter tipped us off to a secret that they actually used to get the cheesecake from a place down the street and we could easily go pick up some there!) So instead we ordered the apple pecan crumble and went home stuffed and happy. All-in-all, wonderful atmosphere, amazing food, friendliest wait staff, fantastic wine selection, reasonable prices... I can't WAIT to go back!

Apizz is a beautiful restaurant that is perfect for a splurge on creative italian cuisine. Our server gave fantastic suggestions for pairing wine with our choices of primi and secondi dishes. Whatever you do, make sure that someone in your party gets the open ravioli with carmelized butternut squash, you will want to lick the plate clean! The low orange lighting added to the relaxing mood. Apizz is also easy to get to, it's close to the 2nd Ave subway stop. I am already looking forward to going back!

love the decor, cozy warm and great lighting, small restaurants give so much more personal touch, and when you have good food, it all adds up to a great place, i really liked this place alot.

when you hear the owner is also the chef at least you know he is going to care about the food, most of the time, and this guy does!! the place is so warm and cozy, and its a small room with friendly people and the most amazing food. i cant belive what is coming out of this huge brick oven, the lasagna of wild boar is incredible, and i dont eat game like that, and the ravioli with butternut squash is divine, this guy takes pride in his cooking its obvious,,loved it much, now do one on the upper eastside for us....

for a place that we read about in ny mag. we expected it to be hip and just ok food, what we found was great food , and being over 40 we were not the oldest there,its still pretty hip but a hip that suits every age, they do a beef carpaccio for a special that was amazing , the veal chop was tender and juicy, the steak a little well done but the cherry peppers that come with it are so tasty, we skipped desert but they sent over a panna cota which was good, cause it was free,

Perfect Balance

Apizz strikes the perfect balance in so many ways: delicious food yet moderate prices, polite yet casual wait staff, romantic yet stylish interior! We asked if we could have 4 courses (antipasta, pasta, pesce and dolce) and share them all. This was no problem at all! The whole oven baked fish was exquisite. We even requested a desert that was not on the menu (affogato al caffe) and this too was welcomed, and charged only $ 5. Definitely one of the very best restaurants in the city!
