Best Italian in New York ? Yes I believe so. You're not going to get better Italian Food anywhere in New York, Bar Pitti is pretty authentic. Love the Punterelle when it's in Season which is a special (not on Menu). The daily specials are wonderful. Don't miss the Braised Oxtails, Calves Liver, Bolito di Manzo, and Pasta with Summer...

This is an excellent little casual place with great food. Fresh burrrata! I also tried the rigatoni Pitti and loved it. Carpaccio with arugula was perfect. Atmosphere is cozy and friendly. Service was efficient. I know there are a million great Italian places in the city but Next time in NYC I would come back!

The menu was completely in Italian so she had to translate it but that just added to the experience for me. We ordered several appetizers. The eggplant was my favorite! Then I had the lasagna. It was delicious! My only... More

We were recommended this place from a local friend, we walked in and instantly smelt truffle which was clearly a popular dish. We however went against it and ordered ravioli and another classic pasta. Both fresh, both really tasty and the perfect little spot away from the madness in Soho

I used to eat here all the time when I lived in NYC. I went last week with my family including my 3 kids. This is not what I'd consider a kid friendly restaurant (they're 12,10 & 6) but I still wanted them to try it because I love the place so much. So how'd it go? All 3 of... More

Bar Pitti was recommended to us by NYC locals and it did not disappoint. Small, no reservations taken, and quite crowded... but wonderful neighborhood vibe, good service, and outstanding food! Food was excellent -- northern Italian and items on the daily changing chalkboard (written in Italian) were explained by our fun capable and entertaining waiter. All of dishes were amazing... More

Staying in Greenwich Village

Neighbourhood Profile
Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to get a feel for this diverse and energetic neighbourhood. You’ll find NYU students, street performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess. Stroll the streets to discover a mix of majestic town homes and hidden bars and restaurants that give this neighbourhood an old-school residential feel. When the sun goes down, check out one of the famous jazz or comedy clubs that still packs them in every night.
