Dining: A Touch Of Venice Steps From Times Square
Of all the cities in Italy, Venice has always been our favorite.
It's a delight -- a feast for the senses at every turn.
But we can't always be in Venice. So, when we want a touch of Venice we head right up the road to the bustling island of Manhattan.
We're talking about one of our favorite restaurants, Osteria al Doge.
Just steps away from Times Square. Osteria al Doge presents an inviting, charming ambience with Venetian inspired dishes. Homemade pastas are complimented by a good selection of fish and meat entrees without forgetting the great thin crusted pizzas. Here you'll find great, authentic Italian food for lunch and dinner.
We've been patronizing this restaurant for two decades and we can tell you that the atmosphere, service and (most of all) the dishes are all consistently excellent.
In a city like New York, it's hard to maintain success amidst relentless competition. People have so many choices and many of them are outstanding.
But Osteria al Doge has continuing to attract a loyal following as well as newcomers with a great dining experience.
Whether it's a romantic dinner for two, an important business lunch, or a lively group celebration, Osteria offers the easy elegance of Venice in the heart of New York's theatre district. And it's great for pre or post theatre dining.
Put it at the top of your list!
