Felidia review

Felidia is fantastic. The octopus appetizer is the best octopus in the city; the pastas melt in your mouth, especially the cacio e pere or pecorino and pear ravioli, and the main courses are innovative. It's my favorite Italian restaurant in the city. SAB

Beautifully balanced dishes with innovative pasta courses, definitely try the pear and pecorino cheese ravioli. One should go at least 4 times a year just to sample dishes off their seasonal menus, not to mention their signature dishes. They have a very extensive wine list, and offer excellent wines by the glass and many international beers. The setting is comfortable and the pace is relaxed. I can't wait to go again.

Felidia is overrated

  • No, I would not go back!

Too many people working there. The waiters surround the tables. The pasta course was impressive,but when it came to the main course, the choice was lacking. No steak on the menu, nor chicken. The closest was lamb chops that were not fresh and veal cheeks that had more fat than flavor. This magazine gave a great review. Second best in the city. All I can say about that, cannot be said in print.

Comfortable atmosphere, uneven menu

Was disappointed with the crab risotto I had, but the grilled octopus salad was superb. The pear and parmisan ravioli is excellent. The highlight was when Lidia stopped by the table, not every day you get to meet a PBS star!

If you want a first class Italian meal and want to feel comfortable in an intimate environment, Felidia's is your place. Lidia's presence in the restaurant is warm and inviting. The food is top notch with some signature dishes and new and interesting creations. It is somewhat crowded but comfortable. It is definately one of my favorites in the city.
