We have been here for cocktails, brunch and now dinner. Each time the staff without exception have been friendly, diligent and prompt. The food is very very good and the place has a great cozy (not crowded) vibe.

Best pizza I have had in ages. Super thin crust, perfectly charred, toppings perfectly balanced.

Pasta way under cooked. 3 pasta dishes just ok. Used to be much better. Maybe they were too busy?

Pizza was very good however.

The pizza was delicious yet the waiter was a bit too present in the course of the meal and could have been a bit less aggressive about moving things swiftly.

While pressure to take advantage of the happy hour was rightly conveyed and later correctly discouraged as the menu held a better sized plate, the idea that we were not ready to order did not cross through well to the gentleman.

Happy hour half off pizzas are great! Only downside was I think they finally stopped serving free tiny desserts at the end of your meal

Lovely staff and delicious food! Great happy hour choices. Can get hectic at family time but kids love the pizzas too so they mostly behave :)

Excellent restaurant. The pizzas are great - terrific dough, good toppings (maybe a tad oversalted). The asparagus appetizer had a mix of interesting flavors, and the branzino was perfectly cooked. Casual atmosphere, casually efficient service. Noisy.

The food was delicious and happy hour was great. Our server was excellent. We wish they hadn’t opened the front glass partition since it was so hot outside, and we chose indoors for the AC, which became useless with the outdoor heat pouring in. Would go back in nicer weather.

My wife and I dine out every Friday during the summer months. We heard good things about Sirenetta, so we thought to give it a try. We were greeted in a very polite manner, sat at an outside table, and received excellent service from our waiter. The only thing made our experience slightly less than perfect was the couple that was allowed to have their rather large dog at the table next to us. This made my experience a bit uncomfortable. At one point, the dog became aggressive at the sight of a passing dog.

Had a great evening at Sirenetta celebrating my daughter's birthday. The place was hopping so glad we had a reservation. Luckily it was a beautiful night and we were seated outside. Our server, Robert was excellent! Food was delicious. Wine was superb. So very pleased we chose this place.

Server disappeared. Timing was way off. App came out with entree. Entrees came out separately. One entree was over-cooked, one under-cooked. Never asked to refresh drinks. Overall terrible service experience.

I am so disappointed with our last visit to Sirenetta. We've been for dinner many times over the years and have always enjoyed our meals. Sirenetta (and Mermaid Inn) had been one of our neighborhood staples, especially when we have friends or family visiting. The staff had always been accommodating as we have a toddler. A couple visits ago (in May), we brought visiting family as they were in the mood for pizza. We were pleased to find they were now serving brunch and tried many of the new dishes and enjoyed them all.

Since then we've visited twice more and each time I'm more and more disappointed. The next visit was a couple weeks later in June, we noticed that the salmon they used for their house cured salmon dish was different. It had been one of our favorite dishes before but this time, it was either a poorer quality salmon or it was prepared differently. It honestly seemed like they used a pack of smoked salmon that you could buy at the market.

And then our last visit this past weekend was very disappointing. We ordered the salmon dish again just in case the last visit had been a fluke (it wasn't). The best brunch dish, the pork belly, was sadly no longer on the menu. And when we ordered the breakfast pizza, the egg on top was missing. We asked two waiters about it - each said the egg was baked into the pizza with a dismissive attitude...even though the menu says "sunnyside egg" and the last 2 times we ordered it, it had an egg on top. My husband also had to ask twice for a drink he had ordered and never got it. The waiter asked if he could take our stroller downstairs to store it, which is totally fine by us as we understand it's a New York restaurant and there is limited space. But we were not pleased to find that when our stroller was returned, someone had spilled oil or food on it and we had to scrub it off when we got home.

I'm sad to see one of our favorite neighborhood restaurants go downhill like this.

This is a lovely friendly pizza place if you want to sit down and have a 'higher quality' pie than you get in the local 'joint'. Order 2 pies for 2 people - they are a bit skimpy in size....that said, good and tasty!

I love the food here, but I have to say that I don't go as often as I'd like because the noise level is insane -- Not conducive to pleasant dining. Loud music. Hard wall surfaces so that conversation echoes around. You have to talk loud to converse and that's an effort when you're eating. They've also changed the menu. They used to automatically give a small panna cotta at the end of the meal, and not offer any other dessert. it was just right and such a nice touch. Now they offer a dessert menu. Not as personal a touch as before. But my two favorites are still on the menu, so that's good!

Pizza was pretty good, pasta was pretty bad- was like eating a bowl of salt with a bit of pasta unfortunately. If we were to go back, would be to eat pizza definitely not the pasta.
