Perfect before an event at the Garden – This place is awesome. Their wine list really impressed me and that's great to have before you drop in on a show at the Garden of something. The meals are very gourmet and light but still manage to fill you up. I ended up getting a pizza (which is something I rarely EVER do) and it was the fanciest pizza I had ever eaten in my life. Haha seriously a good place
A midtown gem for good food! – Lugo is a great place to grab a quick bite to eat around penn station/msg and the midtown manhattan area!

Amazing place right outside of penn! – Recently meet up with some friends at Penn stat. and decided to go into Lugo's caffe, thinking we would just have drinks.... well so glad we did, this place is great. not only were the drinks great, but the food is fantastic! It has a nice relaxing atmosphere, and we were able eat, laugh and enjoy ourselves. Overall one of the nicest places in NY. Definitely worth a visit. enjoy!
Best lunch in the neighborhood – I work in the same building that houses Lugo Caffe & have lunch there at least once a week. There is no where else in the area that serves such good Italian food, and definitely no where as clean & fun. Our entire office heads down for happy hour often. They are happy to accommodate our group, & the service is friendly & casual.
Perfect kid-friendly Midtown spot for Italian – I recently took my twins to see the Sesame Street show at MSG for their birthday. I was looking for a kid-friendly place to eat before the show and I knew Fridays was around the area, but I wanted to try something different. Lugo Cafe was right across the street so I decided to try it. At first, the restaurant didn't seem all that inviting for families, but the staff was very accomadating. They prepared half portions of pastas for the kids, which were delicious, and even brought out gelato with a candle on top for their birthdays. The kids loved it and I would recommend it to any family dining earlier in the evening or seeing a show at MSG.
This Brit Loved the Pasta! – I recently visited Lugo and wanted something to warm me up because it was quite chilly outside. I got a nice cup of Earl Grey served by their in-house barista (excellent!) and for food, my waiter suggested their homemade pastas. I took the bait and tried the Spaghetti Pomodora. It was delicious. Not too heavy, not too light and just filling enough so that I could enjoy my shopping in Herald Square. All in all, a fabulous meal and I'll be back.
Best Prosecco Happy Hour in Midtown! – I went with a group of about 6 girls right after work this past week. We were excited to find out from our waiter that Lugo Caffe has a Prosecco Happy Hour! Each glass was only $4 and it was a perfect end to the rough day we had had at work. The bar was packed with Rangers fans, but it was still a great atmosphere to drink in. Appetizers were delicious and the Prosecco was even better!
Outstanding place outside of Penn / MSG – OMG! This place rocks. I took my kids after a Rangers game to this place that just opened in midtown across from MSG. I ordered an antipasta plate with some of the best cheese I ever had in my life. The clam pizza was spot on and they have good wine selection. Nice big and airy space, I'm a fan.
Excellent Italian Restaurant in Midtown - right near Penn Station! – Lugo Caffe is a great new Italian restaurant right next to Penn Station and Madison Square Garden in Manhattan. It's perfect for any business meeting or just having dinner with friends before or after an event at MSG.
I stopped in for lunch after picking up friends at Penn Station who were coming into the city for a visit. Everyone was really impressed with the ambiance and service. The rave reviews continued after the food arrived. Try the pizza with clams and extra virgin olive oil when you go - and have the caesar salad too!
Don't miss the wine list!
Non-Accomodating ! Felt rushed – Had the pleasure of dining at Tupelo with old friends. We had Rib eyes, Filets and some side dishes, all perfectly prepared. I rated the service category low because we felt like we were being rushed. We had a 7pm reservation, arrived on time and admittedly did not order our food till about 7:30. They did not allow enough time to finish our appetizers before bringing out our main course. By the time it was 8:30pm the place had cleared out, we were practically the only ones there. The waiter advised us that they would be closing soon and handed us the check. I was surprised they closed so early.
