Great food; weirdly pricey

After multiple visits, I've tried nearly everything on the menu, and it's all spectacular (particularly trancscendent: the rock shrimp and clam fritto misto, and the steak tartare). That said, and I'm generally not one to harp on bites-per-dollar, My Grandma's Ravioli is $18 for fewer than a dozen meagerly stuffed inch-square ravioli, and the garlic chicken (great as it is) comes out to $42 - highway robbery as far as roast chicken is concerned. But if someone else is paying the bill, it's a perfect ten.

The cozy atmosphere was a warm welcome on cold winters night. We sat in the library with nice crackling fire sipping on a good scotch while we waited on our party. Perfect way to start as nice experience. The service was great from the time we darkened the doorstep. The dinning experience was a pleasure from start to finish. The critics may say the food is just ok....but when the overall dinning experience tells you that you are 100% satisfied...this becomes a critics choice,

If you are looking for a restaurant with excellent food, a lively but homey atmosphere and an occasional star sighting, Locanda Verde is it. The ricotta is to die for. My swordfish with white bean entree was delicious. The prices are incredibly reasonable, especially for NY. As for star sightings, a Friends star and a Good Wife star were chatting with one another two feet from my chair!

Delicious, simple food. Good service. Warm atmosphere. It smells great when you walk in. Go at lunch and you won't have to reserve weeks in advance.

Locanda Verde - Andrew Carmellini is a gem! Before Andrew left Avoce to pursue other things, Avoce was easily my all time favorite Italian restaurant. Well, I can't say that I wasn't worried, but Carmellini definitely found another stellar restaurant to call his masterpiece. I initially found this place through a rwebsite called eateryexpert.com. I was looking to stump the experts through requesting the best chicken in New York. Well, they responded with Locanda Verde at the top of the list. BTW. Must I mention - Please do not forget to order the roasted chicken for two. I loved everything about the meal and the wine (that our waiter recommended) was fantastic and not too pricy! While the food was amazingly delicious, the service was definitely not top notch. Asides from the wine recommendation, it was PAINFUL getting our server's attention. He was extremely rude when he did come over and definitely impacted our enjoyment of our gastronomic experience. THUMBS up to Carmellini and please get a nicer waiter!

food is great, reservation policy - so 10 years ago....

I went to this restaurant for Chef Carmellini's food/reputation - love his style and approach to food and he didn't disappoint. The food was great... However, the reservation policy seems to be anyone that calls has the option of 5:45pm and 10:30pm. I have tried several times and always get the same option, no matter what time of day I request or day of the week, in a recession, in the middle of summer in downtown Manhattan? Yet when at the restaurant, there are always empty tables at 7:00 and 7:30 - even on a Saturday night. Hmmm, makes me think management is nervous and trying to create a fake buzz around this place. Let the chef take center stage, his food speaks for itself - stop the nonsense at the reservation desk...

Go for the food!

Let me begin by saying that the food is delicious. I had the Casarecce (pasta with shellfish in a garlic lemon sauce) and my boyfriend had the Fennel Glazed Duck paired with cherries (brilliant). Both were finger licking good (but don't do that in this restaurant or you'll be frowned upon). On another note, the service probably is as bad as people say. Talk about making you feel like you're not worthy of being there. The waiter offered very little help with choosing a wine and did not let us taste it first either. He seemed annoyed that we did not want an appetizer or salad. I ordered my pasta first and when my boyfriend ordered the duck after, the waiter expressed surprise. He said he assumed he'd also be ordering pasta. Perhaps he felt we could not afford a duck dish? I didn't feel rushed, but I did feel an air of self righteousness on his part. Quite pretentious, but if you can get past that, you'll enjoy an absolutely amazing meal. And the hostess really is lovely. Someone please train these people to be cordial or even (gasp) kind.
