Dinner was a romantic anniversary celebration and Barolo East did not disappoint. From the moment we were greeted until we left, every member of the staff was attentive, pleasant, and effective. The extensive menu, specials, and wine list made the choices difficult. We were happy with everything and recommend the restaurant for casual and business dining in addition to special occasions. When the weather is good, dining outdoors is also very pleasant.

Despite that the food was tasty, I would never come back as I believe there are much better Italian restaurants in NYC. Specifically I thought the service was poor - the restaurant would make no accommodations whatsoever (I asked for spinach instead of mixed veggies - nope; I asked for 1 scoop of ice cream instead of 3, even though I was happy to pay full price, nope). It took the waiters over 30 minutes to bring the check and I had to ask for it 3 times. Once we got it, we checked the bill and it was correct so my friend and I each put our cards in. They took the bill and swiped our cards. We signed and then were informed that they had run our cards on the wrong table (the difference in cost was nominal - with our bill being about $8 more than what our cards were swiped for). The right thing to do would be for the restaurant to eat the $8 and move on. Instead they had to void our payment and swipe our cards again - making us wait even longer for our bill. Ultimately I didn’t find the staff friendly and while the food was good, it was by no means much better than any other Italian restaurant I’ve eaten at in nyc. Not worth the money.

Dover Sole, Veal Chop, Chicken Milanese; all delicious! The desserts are also delicious! Service is professional and the space is contemporary, light and very pleasant. There is a patio area with floor to ceiling windows that make for great outdoor dining in pleasant temperatures. The view of the patio from indoors is refreshing and really sets it apart from other nearby restaurants. We loved the space, service and most of all the delicious food options. Definitely going back again for lunch. Next time we will go for dinner. Many thanks to the staff for their kind attention to detail.

We went to this restaurant two summers ago for the first time and had a very bad customer service experience. Enough so that we walked out without ordering. We’d resisted giving it another try until last night. So glad we did. The ambiance, the service and the food were all exemplary!! Pasta dishes absolutely delicious - Barata amazing and wine selection was lovely. One of the people in our party ordered a pizza which was frankly lacking a bit but other than that, it was a wonderful meal,

I had a lovely solo dinner there on a Saturday evening, early, before the crowds. The waitstaff was very attentive and the branzino was excellent -- so was the creme brulee. It's a lovely spot - quiet and there's a small courtyard in the back.

Wonderful, attentive service. Excellent wine list. But-the prosciutto and melon had almost no prosciutto. Compared to Cipriani Dolci’s same dish, this one is not worth ordering.

Barola East was fantastic ! We had a quiet table outside on their terrace with plenty of time to talk and visit ! The salads were beautifully prepared (Caesar Salads) along with the different entrees. The fillet of sole was a big hit and nicely deboned - sauteed in butter and lemon juice - perfect !

Their wine list was very extensive, and also their desserts were fabulous !

Excellent service from the entire staff from the moment I walked in until the conclusion of the evening. The food was top-quality and the wine (selection and quality) also met my expectations. The weather was quite nice, so I chose a table outdoors. That setting was perfect. Quiet and comfortable. I will return soon and often.

For my second visit here, the fried calamari appetizer was lightly breaded, very tender and flavorful. The gnocchi had an excellent white sauce. The first time I was here, I had the veal bolognese with homemade pasta, which was outstanding. Definitely going back for more.

Our impression was that they saw us as one-time customers (or maybe they see everyone as one-time customers) from the opening trick question 'would you prefer still or sparkling' (later on you find out the wrong answer has cost you $9/bottle). The correct answer of course is 'tap please', as there are a number of waiters walking around with water pitchers. The food was disappointing, esp for a restaurant that sees itself as higher class. I had the spaghetti with clams. Yes my 6-8 quarter inch tiny shells were technically clams and they sat on a dry sauce-less pasta. Not good. Ah, and the wine list was well over 3x (closer to 4x). Walk before trying to run would be my advice to this restaurant, ie get the basics better.
