My wife, Nancy, and I dined at Rao's on the night of Monday, December 22. This was our third visit and, as usual, the experience, service, and the food exceeded our expectations. I have to be honest that a big part of the pleasure of dining at Rao's is doing something many people want to do but very few can. When I first learned about this tiny Italian restaurant in NYC, I called my American Express Centurion concierge and asked him to get me reservations. He explained to me that that was impossible and the only way I could dine there was to know someone who "owned" one of the 10 tables for a particular night. Not being one who easily gives up, I pursued this until I was able to find a friend who has been kind enough to allow Nancy and I to dine their three times. Add the thrill and excitement of being admitted to the most exclusive restaurant on the Planet to great food and incredible service, and you have one of the most memorable nights of your life. We hope to be returning to Rao’s for a fourth visit before too long.

Lets be Honest here , Its a place you go for status! The food is Common Italian food of average quality. You rub shoulders with celebs and well known folks but the food is just average unless you never had a home cooked Italian meal in your life. A good friend of mine owns a table and brought me with him at least 8 times in the past 2 years while the experience is great the food is not.
