Ampia Rooftop Restaurant first opened last October and closed its doors in March due to COVID-19. The 4,000 sq. ft. restaurant sits inside of an old bank-clearing house, transformed into a modern Mediterranean inspired Rooftop and indoor dining room with all furnishing and design aspects directly from Italy. Upon entering 100 Broad St., an elevator (stairs are also available) brings guests up to the 2nd floor, entering directly into the restaurant, immediately showcasing the open floorplan. Guests can expect a luxurious menu to indulge in an authentic Italian dining experience while maintaining social distancing protocols, and several safety and sanitizing precautions. We will be open for dinner daily – Make your reservation today! Husband and wife duo, Chef Michele Iuliano and Anisa Iuliano, the restaurateurs behind seven NYC-based Italian eateries (most notable being their popular Napoletana eatery, Gnoccheria) open Ampia Restaurant & Rooftop in the heart of the Financial Distr

Menu is more pricey and upscale, but definitely good for a casual dinner or a celebration! Beautiful setting!

Food quality could have been better . It was too loud and when you expect to spend $100 you do expect some noise level control

The rooftop was closed so our reservation was moved to indoor dining due to a “tornado” warning. A tornado in New York? K. The decor was stunning and that’s about it. The wait staff was dressed way too casual; sweatpants, sweatshirts, and ours had a wrinkly tee-shirt on. I was confused when our waiter came over to us, questioning if he was homeless. We decided to have the burrata for our appetizer with the truffle. The truffle was not fresh, as stated by the waiter. Disappointment. The sangria was delicious but I wouldn’t say it’s “world famous” as stated by the waiter. The food was mediocre and when we closed our check we were kicked out immediately. “We have other reservations” passive aggressive much?

The only good thing about this restaurant is the food. The staff - except for one - barely acknowledged you, and one was even down right rude. The music was so loud even outdoor that it made conversation difficult. Having a friendlier staff would certainly make a difference but based on our experience I would not recommend it.

The gnocchi was extremely watered down and that certainly was not truffle. There was no taste or aroma dont know what I ate but it was not truffle gnocchi. Even the Margarita pizza it was watered down I’ve never had a sauce that tasted like water. You only go to this place because it’s Instagramable or because of the atmosphere but do not come to this place if you are looking for good food. it’s over price and it is not good..

We have been to Ampia with a party of 4 people. The location is absolutely awesome and great to sit outside / on the rooftop. They also have a restaurant which is located inside (one level below the rooftop). At first we had some difficulties finding the entrance but once you see the signs it's no problem. The service was awesome, food was very good and the noise level is fairly moderate. Overall I would definitely come again with a group of friends - however for a date I would rather recommend sitting inside as the noise level can be disturbing for some people.
The only annoying things I would complain about was the photographer who took pictures on the rooftop. We were asked if we want a picture and agreed with the believe that this is part of the restaurant experience. At the end the lady showed up asking if we like the picture (she put it in a glass picture frame). We confirmed that this is a fairly nice picture and she asked us if we want to buy it for 20 USD. This put us in an awkward position and I strongly recommend that Ampia either suspends this kind of service or make her tell the customers that this will be a 20 USD picture in order to allow them to turn it down. Therefore keep that in mind if you visit Ampia!

Very nice job on the rooftop! Lovely decor and spacing with a variety of seating configurations. While I thought $18 was exorbitant for the house Pinot Grigio, overall, our dinner was delicious. Gnocchi with lobster and Caesar salad with whole anchovies were on point👌🏽
Solid recommendation🙌🏽

Rooftop is brilliant. Interior is brilliant. Service is not terrible. But the place feels like it was created by someone who used to work in a theme park: the restaurant is always full of large parties (45th birthday, bachelorette, 21 birthday all while we were there). A photographer walks around taking group photos. You can't sit at your reserved table until everyone is there (even though you are the first person on the entire rooftop). The restaurant week menu is only served inside (but sorry the inside staff has gone home for the day so you can't really eat inside?) -- cocktails are $20+ apiece. Every dish has a lobster add-on (note: if you add on the lobster to the pasta you'll get the meat of one claw plus the inside meat of all the legs--there's almost a poetry to the parsimonious decision making here) No bread on the tables. Even the water feels rationed. But there is always someone around to upsell you on the next course or to refill your glass from the bottle of wine you bought. So - yeah - it's a great place to take your out of town tourist friends to prove that NYC is pretty, but would I recommend it to a true foodie? Not unless it was her 45th birthday and she wanted to get loud.

Overall, it's nice spot throw a sweet 16 or for tourists to visit but as locals, this is a spot you go to just out of curiosity once and never again. The drinks are overpriced and taste batch made. The kitchen messed up our order but they were nice about it and apologetic. However, my dish tasted bland and the other dish, lobster salad, was a bit rubbery and tasted old. They did pile on the lobster, which was surprising, but it made sense once you realize they're likely trying to move old product out of the kitchen before it spoils.

Beautiful setting and the service was great!!! Appetizers were good - pizza, meatball, Caesar salad. Entrees were mostly inedible - ravioli, Branzino, salmon. Would actually go back just for the setting!

Loved the floral views however our waitress was awful. It took her 30-40 mins to even pass by our table which I waved her down to ask if we could put drinks in a while. While she stopped to take our drink order we figured we would put our food in as well seeing that other tables near us that sat after us had been serviced already. After getting our drinks she never returned to make sure everything was ok. I’m sure you can imagine the rest of our service with her did not continue in a great direction. Food was nothing memorable and we made sure to order the most expensive dishes as well as the gnocchi with lobster being that they “specialize” in gnocchi. It was Subpar at best but the restaurant decor was adorable.

Our meals were EXCELLENT and a great value; the outdoor-rooftop dining was fantastic. It was a beautiful evening to dine at Ampia and the ambience was amazing. There are definitely more trendy parts of the city to dine, but we would not hesitate to dine there again. We very nearly went back the following night we liked it so much to try other items on the menu.

Fantastic experience! Had a party for 14 outside and an indoor group of 4 at the same time. The service was excellent, everyone was so accommodating. The food was above expectations, great variety! The setting was really beautiful. Charming and festive in the outdoor roof space and sleek and elegant in the inside restaurant.
