Italian
83 ½ is best described as a labor of love. A love of a family, friends and most importantly, food. Chef Vincenzo Mangiafridda, a twenty-year restaurant veteran of the Upper East Side, wanted to open a restaurant that spoke to his deep Sicilian roots. In 83 1/2, his vision has become reality. He created a menu of memorable Italian dishes including silky pastas, inventive antipasti, and delicious entrees.
Above all, it’s Vincenzo’s love of people that makes 83 ½ what it is: a warm, welcoming place where friends and families share their passion for food and familiar faces. We can’t wait for your family to meet ours.

    Extremely disappointed with my recent experience at this restaurant! I had booked a table to surprise a friend, but when we arrived as a group, we were shocked to find out that the restaurant had decided to close earlier than scheduled without notifying me. This was not only embarrassing but also put me in a difficult situation in front of my friends. The lack of communication and consideration is unacceptable. I would advise others to double-check their bookings and confirm the hours before heading out to avoid a similar situation.

    Very good small neighborhood restaurant serving good fresh Italian fare, well-presented at reasonable prices. Delicious, hearty short-ribs with trofie pasta, excellent watermelon, tomato, feta salad were enjoyed. All dishes passing by looked appealing as well. One hard-working server/busperson was somewhat overwhelmed (it was Memorial Day evening so possibly just short-staffed that night?) but really tried hard to please all. Will definitely go back for neighborhood meals.

    A consistent neighborhood delight. Even when I’m in the city for a show, it’s worth a ride on the Q to have a delicious meal away from the madness.
