Decent Italian that delivers UES?

  • 5

I'm looking for recommendations for a reasonable Italian restaurant that delivers in the Gracie Mansion area.

I'm mainly interested in pasta dishes. Something a cut above generic, but I'm concerned higher end food won't travel well.

  1. You might investigate Luna Rossa on East 85th between 1st and 2nd.

      That's one of our favorite local restaurants and exactly the restaurant I was thinking of when I said I was concerned about food not traveling well.

      For example, last time we were there I had a gnocchi dish and my wife had a seafood (in shell) pasta. Would these really still work well by the time they got delivered to us?

      What's your experience?

        I've only eaten in the restaurant itself... so can't really say. (Our main delivery is chinese and
        Indian......)

    2. Cafe Buon Gusto or Maruzzella

        Have you tried their delivery? Does the food travel well?

        According to its website, Maruzella doesn't deliver north of 86th
