Great for lunch meetings. They have a prixe fix menu 3 courses with a few choices $34. We did not go for that. Lamb osso buco and farfalle with pea purée and prosciutto were both amazing. Only 5 minutes walk from Hotel Giraffe where we were staying. Will try again!

This restaurant occupies a large ground floor space facing E 26th Street, The menu is quite restricted, featuring only 5 or 6 dishes under each of the main categories, such as appetisers, primi platte and secundo platte. The food was very well prepared, and enjoyable. Excellent burrata, and farfale. Comprehensive wine list, with heavy emphasis on Italian and French wines.... More

The restaurant has modern decor and a pleasant atmosphere and vibe. The outdoor area was busy on this temperate evening. I had looked at a menu online and ordered a cocktail that I had read about. The waiter informed me that they stopped making it a year ago and no longer had a "cocktail menu." The next thing I knew,... More

This review is terribly delayed; thought I wrote it months ago. We met another couple here for dinner last winter and it was fine. The best part was seeing whether they really had the $19,000 bottle of wine on the wine list. We were very early to dinner (I think our reservation was for 5:30, which was when they opened)... More

Back in the day when this was place first opened in 2006/2007 it was one of the hottest restaurants in NYC. Andrew Carmellini was the chef, his signature duck meatballs, fresh ricotta with EVO, homemade pastas, Black Sea Bass, bomboloni, the pork chop , everything fantastic. The main courses were as interesting as the clientele. DeNiro, Madonna, Woody Allen, &... More

A Voce make it clear on their web site that wine is their "thing" and explain why. That being so, you should not be surprised at the sometimes eye watering prices on the wine list. The wine choice (which is extensive), perhaps understandably, sometimes leans towards offering a range of different vintages for the same wine or estate. While the... More

Ambience was a bit drab but suited perfectly for the lunch time. Food had a nice presentation and evoked nice sensation to the palette. Portions were a little on the smaller side but I did not mind it.

Wine to Pasta to desert and service is to die for. The posts is probably the best next to being at Italy. Comfortable and exquisite service. Can't go wrong. If you want to enjoy a comfortable and quiet beautiful dinner go at opening at 5 pm before they get busy at 7 and its your own private restaurant.

Description
The word is out: Marlon Abela, the restaurateur behind London's Michelin one-star with two-stars rising Greenhouse, has opened a new modern Italian restaurant A Voce ("word of mouth") on the edge of chic Madison Square Park. The emphasis is on grown-up, deeply delicious Italian cookery set against a back drop of Italian style and organic East Coast elements.

Staying in Flatiron District

Neighbourhood Profile
Flatiron District
Offering many of city’s best restaurants and shops set amid classic New York architecture, the Flatiron District is no longer under the tourist radar. At 23rd Street is the famous triangular Flatiron Building, which makes a good picture no matter what angle you photograph it from. Be sure to look up at the elegant architecture as you stroll the streets- much of this neighborhood is part of a historic district that was home to many of the city’s most famous department stores at the turn of the century. At the northern end of the neighbourhood, Madison Square Park is best known for being the home of a famous burger shack, but it can also be a quiet refuge to spend an afternoon, and it frequently hosts interesting public art exhibits. In the lower part of the Flatiron District you'll find Union Square, a bustling crossroads at all times of day and night.
