Went for a quiet lunch on a cold day. Had a wonderful vegetable soup that was just delicious! Sat at the bar with a glass of wine and my yummy soup and totally enjoyed myself. Love the vibe. Very low key, relaxed and friendly and their food is great!

Having arrived to NYC after a long travel day my two sisters and I discovered this treasure! An absolutely lovely spot looking out from a great open air table! The whole evening was delightful from the beautiful red that we had ( actually 2 bottles!) to the amazing array of plates, the freshness and floors were exquisite! Our service was... More

Had a birthday/anniversary celebration here - 6 of us fit comfortably at the end of a long table for 12. The restaurant/wine bar is small but intimate, romantic and most importantly, the noise level is not overbearing. A wonderful selection of wines accompanied one of the most delicious meals we have ever had - from the special salad to the... More

This restaurant was recommended by a friend and it surpassed all our expectations! The food is absolutely delicious, authentic and served in perfect portions to try different dishes! I want to give a very special thank you to Beatrice and Julio for making by birthday a very special one that night! We will certainly go back!

Delicious intimate dining in a cool neighborhood. Fabulous food, great wine list and excellent service. Our favorite was the roasted vegetables with fresh burrata. Would definitely go back.

We had lunch just as they opened on a warm Friday - sitting street side in their odd outdoor benches - while we were waiting to run to the airport.. An extremely pleasant lunch. A glass of wine & great pastas - carbonara & tortellini - with friendly service. Life is good.

Independence Day weekend, and it was not crowded, though it filled up as the evening progressed. We received a warm welcome, and service was attentive, but not rushed. The chef's husband stopped by the table a couple of times to check on things. There was a delicious assortment of small plates, each well prepared with imagination. A nice list of... More

If you are looking for spaghetti and meatball, or sausage and peppers, you won't find them here. There is very little of what passes for "traditional Italian" dishes in America at this restaurant. If you want a fresh take on Italian, but with the simplicity and flavors of Italy, this is your place in New York. I ate here with... More

Staying in East Village

Neighbourhood Profile
East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village, which offers plenty of unique small businesses catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the old-time neighbourhood feel that you can still experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to wander up and down the streets searching for the newest hip spot, or an old-school favorite. In the center of the neighbourhood, Tompkins Square Park serves as a gathering point for the New Yorkers that call the East Village home. The people-watching here is hard to beat.
