I arrive at this outstanding place many times as I love the good mood that is part of this restaurant. The team is very welcoming and skilfull. The service is extraordinarily quick. Also, the food they serve is good. I ate there often and I was always satisfied. The pay is modest. I recommend this restaurant to my friends and family.
the chocolate cake was so good!
I used to think Midtown East was too corporate (aka depressing) and lacked any interesting restaurants beyond late weeknight fast-casual options (still love you, Dig Inn). Thus, I was pleasantly surprised when I tried La Gioconda! It's been operating since 1993, and they specialize in classic Italian cuisine. La Gioconda offer lots of daily specials, so the entrees that we ordered that night were off-menu! Appetizer Gamberetti Gigliati con Pancetta - Seared shrimp wrapped in Italian bacon over cannelini beans. Entrees Risotto - I try to get risotto whenever I can at restaurants because it's such a laborious dish to make. This dish was extremely creamy, and the rice was a bit mushy but had chewiness at the center. The abundance of sausage and mushrooms lent a subtle earthy and savory flavor. Squid Ink Pasta - There was an abundance of clams, almost a 50/50 ratio for seafood to noodles. The noodles themselves were thick, al dente and had a silky outer texture thanks to a copious amount of butter. Dessert Tiramisu - Honestly my favorite type of cake: Decadently soft and creamy, with a slight bitterness from cocoa and coffee powder. We came on a Friday night at 7 pm and thankfully had reservations, otherwise there would've been an hour long wait. It's a small restaurant that has fewer than a dozen tables. Service was smooth, and I personally loved eating here.
