Welcome to Mozzarella & Vino. Our menu reflects the simplicity of authentic Italian ingredients, with a heavy emphasis on the Mozzarella di buffala Campana, Italian cheeses and affettati. Based mostly on classic Italian antipasti, such as arancini, panzarotti, and mozzarella rolls, we also serve a wonderful selection of panini, soups, salads, burger, pasta, and of course mozzarella of all shapes and delicious combinations (even on desserts.) The enoteca style bar focuses on showcasing rather smaller family estates and independent Italian winemakers. We proudly share wines that we love, definitely not mainstream, and wines that translate history, quality and good value. A variety of by the glass is offered, as well as by the bottle. Our selection greatly varies due to constant new discoveries (...we are always in search of something new and delicious.) We look forward to welcoming you to our new home e viva la mozzarella!

The ravioli was excellent. So was the tomato salad. Make sure you eat in the back room with the lights. So fun!

Always a wonderful experience at Mozzarella & Vino. Alex and the rest of the service team are attentive and generous — and the food is consistently wonderful. The mozzarella is beyond words— fresh from Italy and well worth the visit just to experience it. We dine there every time we are in NYC - it’s THAT good!

This restaurant is always our first choice for lunch before a performance at City Center. The staff is friendly and service is very good. There are plenty of choices for lunch.
The garden room in the back is light and airy.

Quaint neighborhood gem located on a side street in the heart of midtown. We ate in the garden room which was lovely. The rice balls were perfectly cooked and delicious. The homemade ravioli was soft and superb.
Would recommend this restaurant.

Un restaurante agradable, donde la comida es muy buena, italiana pero con variaciones, los camareros están constantemente pendientes de si te falta algo y te ayudan a pedir, un sitio tranquilo que además tiene terraza, hablan español y aunque es caro, comparándolo con los precios en España, pero normal en New York, merece la pena para comer algo diferente y de calidad a la mayoría de sitios que hay por la zona más turística. Lo recomiendo.

I would not suggest this to a friend since the food was bland and atmosphere just average. Prices were not excessive but high for what is was. $16 per dessert is too much. Also, limited menu.

Excellent restaurant to have a lunch or dinner before or after a visit to MOMA. The menu had adequate choices. The staff were very attentive. We enjoyed dinner at a reasonable price with wonderful flavors in each dish. The lemon drop soup was delightful. Vegetarian Lasagne was flavorful, great sauce.

We chose two salads from the many available, and they were fresh and interesting. Caesar dressing was made to order, too! Also ordered gazpacho which was flavorful with a lot of vegetables. Also had a home made pasta...excellent. Nice wine list as well.

What's with all these Italian restaurants with all-male serving staffs? I thought we were trying to move in the opposite direction. Some places I know had women servers but don't anymore. Is this me-too? Instead of risking any me-too episodes, just don't employ any women? Other than being yet another place to participate in this trend, this is actually a nice place with good food and pretty good service.

Five is had lunch last Saturday before the theater. I wish I knew the name of our waiter, but he was fabulous....very knowledgeable about the cheese, wine and olive oil. All the staff were pleasant and helpful. The best part was the absolutely delicious food...from the three cheese appetizer to the special ravioli. We all recommend it highly!!!

On a rainy Mother's Day the early arrivals in our group were welcomed to a small table in front for coffee. We were shown to a banquette just inside the glasses in backyard. Good breadbasket. Appetizers were delicious, have the aranchini. Main courses were a good size and all were delicious. I ordered the Tavola Rustica, a choice of cheeses and meats and I can't wait to have it again. The weakness was a lackluster Tiramisu. Service was attentive, decor was warm. I will be back. Cocktails, apps, mains and a shared dessert was about $75 each.

Took a long time for a waiter to come to our table (was not crowded) when he did come we ordered wine and informed him we were celebrating our 45 wedding anniversary no response and the poor service continued, we asked it their were any specials, he acted surprised he said the Ravioli. During dinner we wanted a second glass of wine by the time he came back to check on us we decided to go else where for wine and desert . Food was ok not what we expected. Will not be going back

Beautiful place right between 5th and 6th avenue, on 54th street.

Excellent service and food. Genuine Italian food.

We where there on the latest booking and got the restaurant for our self. That didn’t effect the staff, that probably had the night off if it wasn’t for us, but they delivered 10/10.

Will visit this restaurant every time we come to NYC! Recommended!
