BILLY JOEL CONNECTION – Apparently during a Westwood One radio interview, Billy Joel stated that he would dine at Fontana di Trevi when he played at the nearby Carnegie Hall. It was at this restaurant that a waiter asked him, verbatim, "A bottle of white, a bottle of red, perhaps a bottle of rose' instead?" This is the line Joel uses inhis classic song Scenes From An Italian Restaurant.

skeptical until the Linguine con Vongole arrived – The place is now 50 years old, and the decore is quite possibly original (read: decore is a little bit "quaint"). The servers hop. However, any place that has 50 years of staying power in NYC has got to be good, and this place is no exception. For a meal that is not rushed, and an atmosphere that is nice (not "trendy"), I would highly recommend this wonderful place (I am under 30 and really enjoyed it). The price is very fair for what you get.

Best Caesar Salad in NYC. – If you are a connoiseur of authentic Caesar Salad then it doesn't get any better than this. They make it tableside from scratch and will add Chicken Paillard, Grilled Shrimp or Broiled Salman flaked if you are trying to keep with the Atkins diet. You do have to tell them to keep the bread away though---they make it all on premise and have these dinner rolls with mozzarella cheese inside that are addictive. Only place I ever was offered Chammomile Grappa after dinner. The food was very reasonable considering the quality of everything.

Service detracts from the food – Si my boyfriend and I made a reservation for 8PM. We got there at 8 exactly and the hostess said all they had were small tables up front (how about HOLDING a reservation), though we could see a nice open one it the back. She said the wait would be 5 minutes. 20 minutes later, we were seated at the table that had been open the whole time. OUr waiter was a little confused about how to serve champagne. HOwever, when the food came out, it was great!! I recommend the prosecuttio app and the shrimp entree, but the calamari and the penne were also quite good. Once you get over the huirdles of the bubling servers, the food is well worth it.

Bravo! – Fontana di Trevi was a delight to dine at. Waitstaff were courteous and on the ball. No bombardment of dishes but careful anticipation of when you are done and ready for the next course, and then voila! it arrives! The frittura mista is the best I've had in years... calamari, zucchini, and more. it was a great experience and i would recommend it for a wonderful dinner before a show at carnegie hall.

Food – While the entree was good, our salad was terrible. the wait staff kept mixing up who ordered what and we were rushed out.
