Hidden Italian Delight

First off, I would like to give this restaurant a 3 1/2. Went to La Gioconda last night for dinner and rather enjoyed my meal. Who would've thought that 53rd bw 2nd & 3rd held such a place? Our meal was great with only one complaint, to some the worst kind. My friend ordered mahi mahi and it was filled with bones that she could have easily choked on. The dish itself looked appetizing and the veggies grilled to p... view more

Nice prix fixe lunch

I have eaten there several times before and never was disappointed. Service was friendly and quick. The food is always up to par. Seating can be a bit tight since the dining area is small.

Great waitress, food was divine

I took my business client to La Gioconda for dinner only to find the waitress to remind me very much of the Restaurant's concept--La Gioconda being the Mona Lisa. The food was wonderful & the woman who served us whom seemed in charge of the establishment as well was very helpful & we had a very good time. The special seafood pasta was very authentic & great. The tiramisu to die for...check it out.

Definitely got ur $ worth

Nice place, good food, attentive staff. Nice small quiant restaurant. Went there with a friend, had dinner and we each had a glass of wine. Our bill came up to $50.00 - thats a steal of a deal in NYC for such a nice Italian restaurant.

Good Food at a Good Price

A bunch of us went to La Giaconda for a birthday dinner. Our group was about 10 people and although the place is pretty small we didn't feel cramped. We ordered a bunch of appetizers including the caprese and carpacchio which were very good. For our main courses I'd recommend either the penne with italian sausages and the red snapper. Personally i thought the red snapper was really good. If you're looking for a ... view more

Great food

We were being taken out to lunch and were looking to go to a nicer yet modestly priced place near the office. Someone recommended La Giocanda. The food was really excellent. I can especially recommend the pasta with Italian sausage. I don't know that I would go out of my way to go back (I'm also not a huge fan of Italian food), but if you're looking for great food at very reasonable prices with a pleasant ambience an... view more

Go somewhere else!

Food was alright...but the service was horrible. 1 rude waiter for the entire restaurant. I have never been reprimanded by anyone whose livelihood depends on tips! There are so may better restaurants in New York City, so stay clear of La Giaconda.

Very cozy....

Worth a trip from another part of town, they treat you so nicely here. The grill calamari are a delicious appetizer and the filet mignon with the potatoes seasoned just right and a delicious gravy sauce! If you want to eat lighter all the fish is fresh and tasty. If you want to Splurge on dessert the chocolate crepes is the way to go! Great atmosphere, small, soft lighting, warm decor and friendly service. Can't go w... view more

Great hideaway place

La Gioconda is a great find! This small, quaint, restaurant is great for 2 - 4 people looking for a quiet atmosphere, reasonable prices, and good food. I have been here 3 times now, the pasta is fabulous with good size portions, the service is very friendly, although at times slow. Great place to bring a date, girlfriend or a small group, I loved the penne with sausage and the orchietta with sausage! The grilled ... view more

small is not the word

Food was great. However, miniscule does not even do this justice. Very loud and cramped. Not good for converstaion and staff was a little upset I didn't buy there overpriced wine.
