Diners' Choice Winners: Best Overall
Central New York's best restaurants based upon thousands of OpenTable diner reviews
Once again, we celebrated New Year's Eve at Gola Osteria, which has become our holiday ritual. It remains an excellent choice. Our only quibble this time was the lack of a tasting or prix fixe menu (and wine flight) as we consider this a great way to get a sense of a chef's culinary abilities. I assume that the steakhouse theme may have seemed festive to Gola Osteria's staff, but for those of us who are not too beguiled by a chunk of beef, and notwithstanding the rest of the a la carte menu, it wasn't that exciting or tempting. We missed seating back and enjoying the luxury of enjoying a chef's ingenuity in pairing dishes and wines as we've experienced on previous occasions with their prix fixe menus and flights. Great night, but with a bit of a let down. Hopefully, we'll be able to indulge next holiday season. MoreOpenTable Diner -
