A top-rated regional Italian old timer since 1987, Zagat 24 for both food and service, “this East Midtowner is a model of old-world elegance, offering first-rate Italian food, expert service and a civilized milieu where one can actually talk….it’s worth it for special occasions” and according to Zagat is “definitely a “sleeper hit, a hidden jewel below street level.” Our fantastic 3-course meal includes a homemade pasta or salad to start, and choices of pollo ripieno- filled with prosciutto, fontina cheese, spinach and wild mushrooms, salmone alla senape- salmon with baby shrimp and veal scallopine alla salvia- with prosciutto, fontina cheese and spinach. The Chef has studied in multiple provinces of Italy for the best recipes and fine wines. Hidden below street level, in a land marked townhouse, DeGrezia aesthetically evokes a forgotten time when a romantic private dinner was a real treat. The entire menu from the pasta to the bread to the dessert, is made fresh in house, just how it is done in Italy. The cocktail bar is a service bar, please bring cash to make it easier to serve us.
