I went to the Fiorello maybe 12 times this years. I love their Mozarella with prociuto, the chocolate mousse... BUT two times i was with a french staff service, he was very unpleasant!!!
Extremely pricey but for drinks only you'll feel glamorous

Fiorello is great for a drink after an event at Lincoln Center. If you sit outside in summer you'll often catch famous dancers from the show strolling by. If it's cold, grab a seat at the bar and have a glass of wine and an appetizer or two (which cost as much as entrees at most other restaurants). The appetizer meatballs are small but flavorful. The melon and prosciuto was forgettable. The staff at the bar are so kind and attentive. It's all about the atmosphere which can be touristy but also strangely theatrical and 'old New York.' It's a nice, dramatic finish to an evening of opera, music or dance.
Horrible Watch out!

We watched the maitre d' fire our excellent waiter right before our dessert. He then marched around yelling at someone else and scaring the staff into fearful submission. The maitre' d' is also the general manager and is inappropriate and unprofessional. We will never ever go there again. You would see employees treated better at the Wal Mart. Our waiter was shocked and in disbelief. Food was below average and the decor was designed in the 1970's and has not been updated since. Tourists avoid this place.
Depends on what you're looking for...

Yes, Cafe Fiorello is expensive and often crowded, but given that, it's quite good. They have a mozzarella tasting platter, which is all freshly made and a huge antipasto bar, which you are invited to select from yourself. (Their other specialty is artisan thin crust pizza.) Bottom line, the service is fantastic and for events at Lincoln Center, the location can't be beat. Good food, albeit at a high price.

Save your time. Save your money. This tourist trap has been a sore in the Lincoln Center area for a long time. I don't understand it. There is absolutely nothing to like about this overcrowded cafe with outdoor seating not far from the m104 and m5 bus stop.
Fiorello's is Italian with an American accent - just like the mayor

Cafe Fiorello has all the reasons to be less than it is. So the surprise is it is so good despite being across the street from Lincoln Center, having a top our door dining area, and positioned to get hundreds of walk-ins. With a wide variety of Italian and traditional New York fare on the menu, it is possible to order a simple meal or an Italian feast. The quality of ingredients is excellent. And the wait staff actually appears to enjoy serving. A great find on lower Upper Westside.
