We stopped in on our way to the theatre. It was packed but they found us two stools at the bar. We ordered a 4 cheese plate with no specifications. Our server asked if we were adventurous and we said yes, just no goat cheese. Out came a gorgeous platter with wonderful sides. We had a mango smear, a small... More

I met a friend for a glass of wine and was very pleasantly surprised by the quality of the cheeses they offered. We each picked out a pretty robust red wine and our server suggested that we let the cheese "guru" pick out 3 to accompany our wine. The cheeses were a perfect match and the sauces and bread that...

Visited this Hell's Kitchen gem on a friend's recommendation and we were not disappointed! The cheese pairings were incredible. I had no idea you could pair bleu cheese with chocolate! Their meal offerings are just as good. Small intimate place with a chill vibe. Long live Casellula!!

In a sense not a lot to add to the title, but I will as the place deserves more than one line. The cheese is well served at a good temperature and fully ripe: just right. Not many places achieve this, and if you REALLY appreciate cheese this is almost all that matters. Though excellent wines help: and they achieve... More

The key to a stellar restaurant has to components. One the actual restaurant itself the ambiance if you will, and the second of course is the food. Casellula delivered on both fronts. It was a very homey restaurant while also containing the aspects of a white table cloth restaurant, it was the perfect balance. Which brings us to the food... More

I soooo wanted my Casellula experience to be so much better. We walked quite a few blocks from the theatre to get here on the night we came as this was our restaurant of choice after doing some research and I had wanted to come here on previous visits to the city and missed out due to time limits etc....

Nice wine bar with a spectacular collection of cheeses. It's a small place so be prepared to start tour evening at the bat or even standing. Service is slow and not extraordinary friendly or skilled.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
