Cafe Greco- 72nd and 2Ave

I've been wanting to go for a while, but havent gotten the chance. I heard they have really good food, especially seafood. Can anyone recommend it? Recommended dishes?

    I haven't been in awhile. They have a prix fixe dinner and draw an older crowd. As mentioned it's more of a neighborhood place. I've always had good food there. Not a place I'd seek out, but if I'm in the neighborhood and need a consistent, good, value priced meal it works.

      Cafe Greco isn't very good even as a neighborhood place. More like overpriced mediocre home cooking.

          Been there a couple of times but more than 2 years ago. Was good but I wouldn't consider their food exceptional.

            I think of it as a good neighborhood place rather than as a destination place.
