Cool modern interior with interesting food choices makes eating here always a great experience
Food is absolutely fabulous. Service really sucks. That's a pity!
Not good for bigger groups. Food comes out slowly and sporadically over the course of 20 to 30 minutes.
greet everyone Ciao bello/bellas as you come in! Random nights you will see several people talking loud at the bar (yup, that's me) ...
20$ corkage fee I am impressed
Buffalo mozzarella with watermelon was refreshing and delicious. Everything is fresh and yummy here!
Their goat cheese salad is amazing. Pair with wine!
Wonderful food and it’s close by!
If you enjoy a negroni but can't always handle the hooch try the negroni sbagliato. Delish
The $20 for "half" an appetizer and any main is a great business lunch in Soho without the pretension and tourist trappiness of Balthazar.
Best Italian pasta in SOHO. Forget about touristic Little Italy! Period.
They have a killer lunch Prix Fixe. If you're with a small group, I recommend everyone orders something different an go family style!
My new jam is asking them to add some mozzarella to the whole wheat spaghetti. Super tasty.
"Bomboloni at Caffe Falai are light and delicate... They come in four flavors, including chocolate and vanilla crème, but our favorites were the chantilly and a sweet strawberry jam." -Serious Eats
The boar ragu pasta and the Mozarella appetizer are wonderful. The clam linguini was so-so.
Veal stew is underrated. Full of fresh vegetables.
Get the baked eggs w smoked salmon and dip the fresh bread into it!
Straciatella is not the menu but you can ask for it. Like the best burrata you've ever had.
Try the Lunch Special - Incredible spread!
Try the flourless chocolate cake. Yumm!!!
fermented Palermo. Squid ink, vodka, baby spinach, ginger & olive oil
Food was great (I had the cod), place is cozy and very cute but service was terrible. Servers were glorified busboys and we had to hunt our server down for everything; he just stood around all night
The buffalo mozzarella w/lemon olive oil antipasti was transformative.
Stop in the shop next door to pick up chef Iacopo Falai's favorite cheese: Blu di Bufala (mild blue cheese).
Don't leave without getting the Crepe Cake
Loved the squid ink pasta and octopus. Spinach gnocchi was a bit overwhelming.
60 Thompson concierge Paul says that though the baked eggs may be the most popular dish, "the Marinated Figs Over Ricotta Cheese takes a bit of my heart each time I go."

Veal meatballs are a delight
Boar ragu and squash papardelle is to DIE for!
White truffle pasta special, but screw that - tagliatelle w/ veal ragu is the winter warmer you want right now. Or pappardelle w/ wild boar. Rustic, perfect. Forget Osteria Morini & the crowds.
Make sure to ask for the prix fixe menu - its a steal!
Best iced coffee ... ask for a bombeloni with your coffee
For breakfast, order the foccacina with boiled eggs and have them add a slice of prosciutto. Amazing.
Really Great Coffee - Italian Style.
Day: The pear-and-chocolate turnover here is one of the best pastries in New York. Buy a loaf of cabbage bread to go. Evening: the branzino is delicious, as are the Black Moon cake and the crepe cake.
Note to self: come here more often.
They make the BEST Cappuccino here. Just like in Roma.
do the baked eggs for brunch
Menu is seasonal but all the pastas are mindblowing.
Amazing Panna Cotta!
