Honestly I was so excited to try this place but ended up having a horrible experience. We were seated in the outdoor tent section and it was cold. They have heaters but it’s still chilly especially by the door. We were seated but were never given menus. We waited and waited and waited for our server to come by and introduce themselves but they never did. Finally we asked someone walking by for a menu and asked him if he knew who our waiter would be for the night and he said that he was our waiter. He was honestly cold and dismissive. I tried to ask for opinions on the menu and he just seemed annoyed that I was taking long to decide. I ultimately went with his suggestion which was the lasagna, he even asked me to repeat it to make sure. Long story short, he got my meal wrong. It was nice that they let me keep the wrong one and still made what I really wanted but I was waiting forever to get it and then by the time I got it it was too late. We ended up having to throw away almost the entire delicious lasagna (what I really wanted) because the hotel we stayed at didn’t have a fridge. Anyways, the food was amazing but if you go sit inside and I hope you get a better server than we did. He made us feel unwelcome, out of place, and just very uncomfortable.

The outdoor space was nice but it was just indoor space on the street- all enclosed with heaters. The food was just average and overpriced. Had the veal Milanese. It had too much batter.

Not worth it for brunch - awful omlette that was way overdone and missing the cheese.

Food, as usual, was outstanding. Chef has a deft hand. Bravo!

Service was abysmal...slow and arrogant. I’ll give another chance but with the limitations from the COVID-19 shutdowns, I’d have thought they’d be more attentive.

We live in that neighborhood. And have been very good customers during Covid.
Once we were asked to leave our table as they had another reservation waiting. Mind you a $150 bottle of wine plus cocktails.

And again we are just this past Tuesday night. The tuna tartare was frozen. And was told for a 5:15 reservation ( 4 people) they needed that exact table back by 6:30. So we moved tables prior to dining.

Covid hard but prices expensive and not great customer service.

Waited 15 minutes before waiter came to table after reminding hostess twice about sending someone over. Had to ask for bread basket. Waitress very nice but did not follow instructions on food preparation requests. Restaurant allowed "singer" to roam sidewalk and ask for tips constantly. Wife salad tasted like it was from frozen vegetables. Asked for brussels sprouts to be well done and instead came out barely done. Waiters couldn't figure out which table got which food.

We ate outdoors. I was raining but the structure they have keeps the rain out while allowing air in so it is safe in COVID times. My friend had a Gorgonzola and Prosciutto omelette which she said was excellent and I had fettuccine Normia which was also excellent. When we complained that the wind was blowing the curtain into our faces, they very nicely came with a stapler and stapled it to the wall so we weren't bothered. Service was attentive without being overbearing.
All in all, a very pleasant experience. Would definitely go back.

I love Vicolina and have been a customer of the previous restaurant Vico for years and years. They have done a wonderful job making the new normal feel lovely! But there seems to still be a glitch with the service. At first when we sat down things went well... except we suddenly had 3 different people waiting on us. One hand never seem to know what the other was doing which caused lots of snafus. My friend ordered a shrimp entree and it arrived completely uncooked. My dinner was delicious but since we had to wait another 20 minutes for a new entree.... it just threw it all off. Despite the inconsistencies I still love Vicolina and I hope they work out all the kinks. It is a neighborhood spot that is elevating the dining scene in Carnegie Hill.... especially when things are in sync.

I love the restaurant that was there originally so we were very excited to try vicolino. I had a salad with grilled chicken that was not inexpensive. The chicken was overcooked and tough and the salad a bit wilted. I was very disappointed. My dining companion had a terrific salmon and the cappuccinos were great so...maybe I just chose the wrong thing.

Even with rain the outdoor seating was out of this world. I felt myself sitting in a European cabin. Very warm and toasty.

The food was very fresh and service was impeccable.
