This is the version of our website addressed to speakers of English in the United States. My friend and I were considering the vegetarian tasting menu but there were so many specific dishes we wanted to try that our outstanding waiter suggested the Traditional Italian Dinner where you get to choose one appetizer per person, two pastas to share and two main courses. I had the Tuna Cruddo which is a lot of different raw fishes in a bland sauce that obscured the flavors of the different fish. last, the panna cotta was excellent as was the tiramisu, according to my wife. Felidia also offers a delicious three course price-fixed lunch, Monday - Friday for $29.50 per person, making the restaurant great for business lunches or just a nice afternoon treat. We were surprised by the limited menu, but found enough 2nd and 3rd courses that we’d like. Don’t judge. Our party of five fit comfortably in the intimate dining room. Wine was excellent as was the first course of dry scallops and pear ravioli. only seen in bad Chinese restaurants. The prices were, however, absolutely memorable. We were the first to enter the restaurant at 5:30 PM immediately when it opened...and sat at the bar for a drink.

MIchele and I were in NYC for one of Michele's conferences, so we decided to take in Felidia last night before going to the theatre. It just appears that the employees in Felida are not happy campers and that is reflected in the service and the food. more. Simply magnificent!The ambiance is wonderful, and it begins with mood lighting and a tastefully designed dining area. I prefer Italian food with character and flavor. while the service has been criticized elsewhere, from the receptionist to the wait staff it was well done and accomodating. Rather than expressing regret or even acknowledging the situation, the manager walked me through a several step process that would have led me to the details of the prix fixe meal if I had scrolled to the very bottom of the screen to the menu tab , clicked for a new screen then scrolled six boxes to the right to find a Valentines Day tab which when clicked now revealed the menu. the sea bass was very good as was the pear ravioli. The wines (a Verdicchio and a Sangiovese) were excellent. We both ordered the special Veal dish and that came out luke warm at best so we had to send back for reheat and again it came out luke warm +. Overall, an expensive dinner that was very average. Finally the drink came and they took us to be seated.... and we ended up being led up stairs to essentially the "Siberia" of Felidia's. I had recommended this restaurant to my friends and I left feeling embarrassed and ashamed. Two different kinds of ravioli were so delicate that I don’t know how they managed to cook them. You will not be disappointed. Obviously her success has not gone to her head, and we were thrilled to have the opportunity to meet her and chat for a couple of minutes. Finally the drink came and they took us to be seated.... and we ended up being led up stairs to essentially the "Siberia" of Felidia's. We watch Lidia religiously on PBS, own several of her cook books and always find that her recipes produce outstanding dishes when prepared at home. I later learned that he also notified Open Table that we had not appeared for our reservation. While we did not drink any wine because we did not want to fall asleep at the theatre, the Knob Creek Manhattans were first rate and generous. All were expertly prepared. I do which is why I searched through numerous restaurants on Open Table and Resy before choosing Felidia which did not note that they would have a prix fixe dinner. When I suggested he might want to keep a look out for my on line review he then refused to refund the prepaid amount saying that he would not do so because I told him to look for my review (I am disputing the charge) . Very expensive and not very good.Polenta the cereal bowl size with wild mushrooms that were dry as a bone,awful. Simply magnificent!The ambiance is wonderful, and it begins with mood lighting and a tastefully designed dining area. When I suggested he might want to keep a look out for my on line review he then refused to refund the prepaid amount saying that he would not do so because I told him to look for my review (I am disputing the charge) . this is lidia's first restaurant from what i understand. Felidia is, without a doubt, one of the finest restaurants that we have had the privilege of dining at. Food is a bit eclectic for my tastes but my wife loves it and they had executed well so we went back. . After many years of watching Lydia and preparing from her recipes this was our visit to one of her restaurants; it did not disappoint! Italian food is a reflection of a great and dynamic culture.
