Brothers Giuseppe and Enzo Lentini, in three short years, have established their namesake restaurant, Lentini, as one of the Upper East Side's "must eat at" restaurants. The peach-themed room, complete with green curtains draped over purple flowers, is set beside the bar, which boasts an oversized assortment of flowers.

Fresh off an 18 year stint as Head Chef at the popular hot spot Elio's, Giuseppe is proud to offer his creations to a new following of dedicated diners. Pollo Lentini, a variation of chicken scarparello made with artichoke, is one of the more popular twists that please guests. As soon as you are greeted by Enzo at the front of the restaurant, you can see how his civilized style has been passed on to the warm wait staff that is on top of the diner's every need.

One of the main attractions at Lentini is the beautiful bar at the front of the restaurant. It was designed as a most comfortable spot for dining, and people who do so seem to enjoy each other's presence, creating an interactive
dining experience. In fact, many neighborhood notables such as Geraldine Ferraro have offered their own testimonials: “This summer I tried to make my zucchini flowers taste as good as Giusseppe’s mama’s flowers. I wasn’t successful. Next summer, Giuseppe promised to teach me how.”

Diners are able to sample a large part of Lentini's wine list, as 12 different labels are served by the glass every night. Weekly specials, such as Wednesday's Spaghetti and Meatballs, and Sunday's Homemade Lasagna has made Lentini more of a destination spot for all of New Yorkers to enjoy. Revelers even come from Long Island and New Jersey on a regular basis to take part in the experience.
