Erminia, opened nearly 23 years ago, is New York City's most romantic restaurant. Obtaining some of the Zagat Survey's most highly rated scores for food, service and décor each year, the Lattanzi family's Roman influenced Italian food is second to none on the Upper East Side. Forbes Magazine twice selected Erminia as its number one Top Pick for food, and most diners agree that the original concoctions prepared here will win the hearts of all who come to experience the fare.
The Swiss Alps cabin-like atmosphere accents the rustic feel at Erminia, complete with old farming tools stowed away in the faux attic above the dining room. Candles and flowers at every table and dimly lit chandeliers add to the romance, making this New York's number one choice for Valentine's Day dinner.
As there is only a small amount of seating, each diner is personally greeted by gracious host Nikola, who attends to his guest's every culinary need. All pastas, such as the "Orecchiette Erminia" - small shells with sausages and broccoli sauce, and the "Fettuccine alla Boscaiola" - homemade Fettuccine with shitaki mushrooms, shallots, sage and chopped tomatoes - are made in-house and are original "Lattanzi recipes". Erminia is proud to open its doors on Sunday evenings, by special request, should you have a private occasion you would like to celebrate.
Proposals seem to come nightly, and couples who have started their romance here come back year after year to celebrate their anniversaries and birthdays at Erminia - the most special of places.
