Located steps from Manhattan’s Theatre District and the famed Carnegie Hall, Ed Sullivan Theater, and City Center, Abboccato Italian Kitchen serves some of New York City’s finest authentic, yet simple Italian cuisine, spanning the diverse regions of Italy from Sicily to Lombardi. The 75-seat casual Italian restaurant owned and operated by the Livanos family is perfectly suited for a leisurely meal and pre-theatre bite without the hectic tumult of Times Square.

Chef David Arias offers authentic regional dishes spanning Italy and are showcased in a menu featuring ten varieties of handmade pasta, a selection of shared plates, an approachable six-course chef’s tasting menu, and Cicchetti Hour. To accompany the meal, guests can enjoy Italian wines and cocktails featuring traditional Italian spirits and modern preparations, including herb and fruit-infused ice cubes.
