The food and wine at Maialino was delicious, of course, but what really made the difference between my 4 or 5 star rating was the service. I had reserved the table for a birthday celebration and the restaurant staff went above and beyond to ensure it was a memorable occasion. Though it can be a little noisy when the dining room is full, the atmosphere was warm and inviting. The food was great and I look forward to returning to try more of the menu.

I love this place. The happy hour menu is quite affordable. The duck appetizer is delightful. I took two different dates here. I highly recommend it.

My fiancé and I eat differently. She's all healthy and I... well, I like meat. And fat. We both enjoyed it here. Would I have enjoyed the pig cheek more then the pastas and fish? I expect so. Good place, typical NYC prices. Take a shot. a year later: brunch. YUM. not cheap, though; i mean...$90, no alcohol.

Lunch experience: the ricotta bruschetta and tomatoe croquettes to start were delicious and my husband and I shared two pastas. The food was great with really nice, clean flavors. Dislikes: the Classic Bloody Mary I had was terrible. It tasted like bad tomato juice with no flavor. The desserts also weren't anything special. The lemon scented (not flavored) custard tart was extremely disappointing. The most flavor I could find was in the candied lemon peel garnish. The cannoli gelato was good except it was rolled in heavily salted pistachios that overpowered the creamy taste. Our server was friendly and attentive and kept our basket full of focaccia while we waited for our food. I will definitely go back, but will skip dessert and double down on pastas!

There are lots of great things about this place and some areas for growth. The service is impeccable; it's as if they anticipated our needs before we did! They have a wonderfully diverse menu, so it's a great place for a variety of eaters. The decor (while nice) seemed to be a bit casual and was a mis-match with the rest of the tone of the restaurant, in my opinion. Their cocktails are yummy and they have a sommelier to help navigate the 20 pages of wine options. We ordered the Frito Mixto, which was tasty (a bit heavy, so just be mindful). I ordered the suckling pig and my husband ordered a fish dish. His was yummy, and while my dish was tasty, it was too much work. The pig skin was so crispy that I couldn't cut through it without breaking a sweat (literally). It shouldn't have been that much work - I've had suckling pig before and it was a very pleasant experience. Also, while I love salt, this was too salty for me that I couldn't finish it. Not sure why this was prepared in the way it was, but I didn't enjoy it. The dessert was a nice way to end on a good note. We had the strawberry shortcake and it was delightful. Perhaps I went wrong in my entree choice. I would try it again but would maybe go with the pasta or fish.

Almost no one I've talked to has disliked Maialino; after all, it has the magical Danny Meyer influence. Paying homage to the Roman Italian cuisine, this spacious restaurant is a suitable venue for almost any location. When I visited with my friend for brunch, we were quickly won over by the simple but delicious Cacio e Pepe, a luxurious portion of pasta that melded the cheese and black pepper beautifully. My simple Contadino, consisting of two perfectly poached eggs atop a medley of roasted root vegetables and a squash puree, was a well-rounded dish, albeit on the smaller side. While I have yet to visit in the evening, Maialino also offers a "Ci Pensiamo Noi", a four-course family-style meal that is decided on by the restaurant... an attractive option that I'd certainly like to return for.

Superb for a business breakfast. Very pretty interior with spread out tables that encourage conversations. The pancakes are incredible and portions are gigantic. Great to share. Eggs are standard fare. The menu is large and service was excellent.
