I Love Felidia!!
By kitnimbus on 7/23/2003
I was a little scared to go to Felidia, as other reviews suggested that the place was overhyped and that the service was snotty. It ended up being a magical experience! Sure, it's crazy expensive...but every dish that we had was so yummy. The best part was the service; even though we split an appetizer and only had the pasta course (no wine, no desert), they treated us like royalty. I'm trying hard to curb my century21 habit, so that I can afford to go back to Felidia in a few months!

TV show looks better....

I was expecting Lydia Bastianich's PBS show but instead I was greatly underwhelmed by its petite and languid game dishes. Pasta dishes reign supreme as does its superlative wine list and decadent dessert menu. Still, I felt a little twinge for some good old fashion Sausage & Peppers and Parpadelle.
Olive Oil and Paradise
By bambola on 4/19/2003
The only place outside of Italy where I have had an olive oil tasting where it seemed the oil came straight off the presses..... and then the delicate pastas, the lightest potato gnocchis, the creamiest mushroom vitello...The menu changes seasonally but what never changes is the feeling you get when eating here: its paradise.
Heaven In Manhatten

Felidia is a touch of Italy nestled in uptown Manhattan. The ambiance is shear luxury from the moment you walk in. The staff is attentive to every detail of a dining experience. The highlight is the Felidia's exquisite food. Dodo, Felidia's chef, is by far one of the best chef in Manhattan if not the world. There are few words to explain the pleasure of his cooking. From a seafood salad, a tender veil shank to a desert for the gods you will not be disappointed with felidia's.
They really make you feel like family!! Terrific!

I have dined at Felidia numerous times and everytime is just as wonderful. The food is great and the staff is well informed and eager to explain anything. The atmosphere is elegant yet warm. And the true essence of Italy is captured. It is always a great time
My favorite place in NYC
By migapolanco on 3/25/2003
Felidia is my favorite restaurant. I just love it. From the amazing wine list to the delicious dishes. Chef Fortunato Nicotra is a genius in my book. A very talented individual! Everyone I introduce to Felidia becomes a fan for life...

Felidia is my favorite Italian restaurant. The menu is always changing with seasonal choices, from hearty game during the colder months to fresh pasta and light summer dishes. While their are delicious signature dishes, the chef is always wonderrfully creative with specials and seasonal items. Compared to other top notch restaurants, felidia's is also a value with good sized portions (not too big), excellent service and a warm, elegant atmosphere.

I have been going to Felidia for over 15 years, and it never fails to amaze me. Lidia Bastianich gives exciting culinary experiences through an everchanging menu, and the top-notch service is attentive yet not imposing. In a city with a short attention span, Felidia continues to satisfy even the most demanding diners. Hats off.
