Vittorio Miriel is old world hospitality (people-centric) +winning! Salmon, Barolo Marsala, porcini mushrooms tender, woodsy: soft like clouds: divine! Ode on a side of vegetables: zucchinis spiced w/ red pepper flakes (Lord in the details!); Tartufo ice cream covered in chocolate maraschino cherry center, drizzled w. sweet honey + almonds (fabulous!); Lavazza espresso done right w/ lemon zest (potent) citrusy WOW! Charming murals romantic!
It is well reviewed, but we suspect reviews are old. The courtesy bruschetta was delightful. Salad had plain oil and vinegar; no offering of fresh ground pepper. Veal scaloppini typical but un-inspiring; how about a side order of pasta? What we got were luke warm green veggies. Wine ( A Cabernet and a Montepulciano) was very ordinary; gee, they tasted about the same; ? same bottle, open all day?? They have been doing this since 1968 and I suspect many of the waiters there that long; time to hang it up. Not a good deal for the price, in spite of what you generally read on the net.
I have been going to Nanni for 16 years. It is absolutely the most delicious Italian food in New York. Not cheap but well worth it. It's small so it can get a little loud when the tables are full. Th decor is simple but you are there for the food!!! The Nanni pasta is outstanding as is the milanesa and don't forget the sauted escarole. Italian waiters are charming.
The other reviews are accurate.This is a no nonsense Italian food with a sense of humor. The waiters are in their 70's and have been working there on average 20+ years. THey have personality and passion.Everything is good. If the waiter makes a suggestion go with it unless it is a food you really don

Food very good but I ordered a Beer, an Amstel light, and it cost $10!! I didn't see it on the menu etc. and shame on me for not asking. A side dish of pasta, as my dinner didn't have pasta with it, was $10. Once again I just asked for it without seeing it on the menu. We spent $40 on items like this.
