    A classy oasis tucked into a charmingly tiny space, I Sodi is a deeply under-hyped restaurant. The food is simple and perfect, from the tartar to the life-changing lasagna. Listen up for the specials.

    Omg the lasagna 🙌🏼🙌🏼 Takes an additional 25 mins when you order, but so worth it. Never had lasagna like this in my life- so melty and rich and perfect! Steak tartare was stellar too.

    All the dishes were exceptional. I would go to have the same meal again. We doubled up On the amazing salad. Had the fried artichokes. Then 3 pastas. Lasagna. Vongole & Cacio peppe. All to die for.

    Perfect for date night. Gets really busy, and is fairly small, so put your name down early if you don't have a reso. Must order the artichokes and the steak tartare. Tiramisu is a must!

    I Sodi is our top pick. It offers completely authentic Tuscan cuisine, with items like cacio e pepe (spaghetti with black pepper and pecorino), rather than penne alla vodka and $1 pizza slices. Read more

    A+ across the board. Excellent service, the food is delicious on all counts and the vibe is great! Lasagna special is second to none! Negroni cocktail to start is highly recommended.

    Order the fried artichokes if available! The pastas are all super tasty, especially the cacio e pepe. Ask your server for recommendations on Nebbiolo to pair with your meal.

    omg i sodi is the perfect balance of charming, rustic, and upscale. I know everyone says you should go for the lasagna but what swept me off my feet was the cacio e pepe! Also, perfect martinis.

    [Restaurant/Bar] Our favorite Italian, hands down - Tuscan trucker food the way it should be. Try the pepper spaghetti. Book well in advance or try to get a seat at the bar.

    Food is excellent and the execution on cocktails was strong. Spinach ravioli is worth a try and lasagna is a showstopper as is Rabbit porchetta. Ambiance was a little sterile on first visit though

    Amazing ingredient and no gimmicks approach makes this place a true NYC gem. Negroni, steak tartare and lasagna were both excellent. Cacio e Pepe next time!

    One of the best lasagnas and fried artichokes and chocolate cakes I've ever had. Lemon pasta was very good. Ravioli eh.

    This tiny, beautifully-designed West Village restaurant serves some of the city's best pastas & a small list of rustic Tuscan-style meat dishes. Make reservations well ahead of time. [Eater 38 Member]

    Negroni lovers rejoice, this place treats your favourite drink with serious respect. Also don't miss the lasagne and the black kale.

    Walk-ins at the bar are pretty easy, which is nice considering how hard reservations are to get. Lasagna was the only great dish we had, but onion pasta, tartare, artichoke salad, & rabbit were fine.

    outstanding! absolutely loved the artichoke lasagna and ravs with spinach ricotta and sage. The antipasto for two was enormous and fried artichokes were to die for! new favorite date spot.

    The hype. I know. But sadly, I found almost everything lacked an extra "it" factor to make it worth all the noise. Still, the negronis are top notch, and the cacio e pepe is very, very good.

    MICHAEL MINARIK: "Best Italian food I've had in the city. Their olive oil is shipped in from the owner’s farm in Tuscany & is a meal in and of itself. I especially love going here in the wintertime." Read more

    Simple, elegant Italian executed very well. Still daze about the creamy, punchy cacio e pepe and airy, show-stealing tiramisu. Perfect 3rd date.

    Amazing Italian. Negronis are some of the best in the city, the pasta is as good as Carbone.

    Our favorite place to come for solid Cacio e Pepe. It's a simple dish, but they really know how to do it right here.

    Take either the Rigatoni strascicati or the cacio e Pepe; great selection of wines; fantastic service ... Great place to eat at the bar by yourself or in good company

    Dear Olvie Garden -- please send your food artists to this place instead of your Tuscan kitchen. This place is the real deal. #1 Italian joint in NYC

    Everything was on the salty side. This ruined the cacio e pepe a bit but would still recommend the lasagna and fried artichokes.
