Visiting New York for the weekend I had the pleasure of dining at the bar twice. Shelby was outstanding. She was very knowledgeable about the menu and professional and friendly. I enjoyed the meatballs with pignolis and raisin , also the orata with escarola. I...can’t wait to return. Sincerely, Joseph BuonincontriMore

As a walk in, they promptly offered a seat at the bar, the staff was very nice, and the menu seemed small, but after you dig into it, you discover that they have a very good selection, and the plates were exquisite.

I dined there last week for dinner with my son and it was sublime. The grilled chicken and crusty bread with butter and anchovies was delicious. Can't wait to return. 😋

Via Carota is only serving in their outdoor enclosure and reservations are very limited and hard to get. Nonetheless, we had an early lunch slot and delighted in two longtime favorites: grilled artichokes and the Meyer lemon risotto. The artichokes are my spouse’s favorite and...I consider their risotto food for the gods. It satisfies on so many levels. In addition, we enjoyed the fritto misto, although I thought it was a tad on the dry side and could have been cooked a bit less and/or served with more lemon wedges or some aioli. They are encouraging ordering on your phone, but they will also give you a paper menu. Now we know to use our phones for the next visit!More

So nice to be able to walk in (technically walk outdoors) without a reservation. The Cacio Pepe remains awesome. The stracciatella soup really nice (with a lots of egg). Enough roasted root vegetable to feed an army. The orecchiette with sausage and broccoli rabe was...too salty and we sent it back. The waiter handled it perfectly. No place is perfect. We’ll be back.More

My step-daughter recommended this establishment, although she did warn us that they did not accept reservations and there would be a wait. We got there for an early dinner and had to wait for almost an hour. We were then given the choice to share...a table with another party, or continue to wait for an unspecified time. Needless to say we shared, Since the other party was making wedding plans, we had little interaction with them. We each ordered a pasta dish, and shared them. The food was excellent as was the service. However as I said in the title, I am not sure it was worth the wait. If you have time to kill, go, but otherwise there are many Italian restaurants in New York with equally good food.More

I regularly visit NYC but we struggled to find a reservation at a good place on a thursday night. However we were accomodated and seated and warmly cheerfully checked on with all the lovely staff who seemed busy but efficiently and merrily attended to all...everyone all night. Our waiter was great, The delicious food swiftly flowed and i cant cease to mention how often our water was topped up and the napkins were refolded:) I believe their floor manager Zoë if i caught her name correctly was the saving grace and star of the show. Our experience was everything and each one of the charming cheerful staff made a huge impact on this Gem of an establishment! I cant wait to return! Its definitely worth the wait and the carpaccio, MeatBalls and the Pork Belly was Decadent and Scrumptious!!!!More

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the
West Village is one of the city’s most coveted
addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and
cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,
this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.
Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you

It depends on the day of the week. You're probably better-suited though, generally speaking, to go towards 2pm, after the lunch-rush.
