    Kieth McNally’s Italian trattoria serves one of the best breakfasts in the West Village. Egg options include a vegetable frittata, poached eggs with artichokes, and steak with eggs. Read more

    It's a trendy and lively spot. Food is good but tough to get anything special ordered (I wanted calamari in red sauce but they only would serve it on the side). Great Manhattan's! I recommend it.

    Morandi is a spacious restaurant, particularly in the summer months - an excellent al fresco situation. good food, not quite up to par with some of the West Village heavyweights

    The baked eggs in a skillet for brunch are amazing especially on a nice day and a table outside! For pasta the lemon pasta is so simple but incredibly delicious. Great for sharing!

    Our waiter recommended a pasta dish which was cooked to perfection. The sauces blended really well. And def get the meatballs. They melt in your mouth. Tiramisu - yum yum

    Great pastas and atmosphere. Perfect for groups and has outdoor seating. Try the squid ink spaghetti with mixed seafood and the cavatelli with lamb and snow peas!

    Great outdoor seating / location. Try the cavatelli pasta in the prosciutto cream sauce. We had an issue where our cards were double charged but otherwise good experience.

    Everything in this charming West Village restaurant is delicious! The meatballs are close to perfect. Even the olive oil is incredible. A great place to enjoy some great food and wine with friends.

    They will give you spaghetti with the meatball entree and love them for it. Great scene and yummy food. Must have the torta di ricotta desert above all others - yes I tried them all don't be a hater

    Roasted Brussels sprouts. Grilled sea bass well done. (And the focaccia with ricotta cheese if you're feeling it...yummy) third dinner visit- must try it during brunch!

    This is my favorite simple salad anywhere. Just a beautiful layered butter lettuce with vinaigrette.

    Great atmosphere and even the inside tables feel outdoors thanks to the big windows that open up. Great pasta options and nice wine list

    Sit outside on a lovely afternoon and start out with blood orange martinis. Work your way towards lambrusco and close it out with their meatballs. Go home and pass out with a smile on your face.

    Though perhaps not of the same caliber as his famous brasseries, McNally scores again with this venue’s solid menu, romantic ambiance, and quaintly charming décor. The weekend brunch is a solid hit. Read more

    NY. Yet another Keith McNally hot-spot, we love the pastas and lively environment at Morandi. Must try: the burrata e pachini and Pici Al Limone spaghetti.

    You MUST order the rigatoni all’amatriciana and the meatballs. The very attentive service makes the meal even more enjoyable.

    Celeb sightings galore! They have this salted fish mashed potato polenta app here that's so different from anything I've ever tried... in a great way.

    Sit outside, get a bottle of chilled Lambrusco and enjoy the scenery. Great at any time but baked egg skillet for brunch is delish!

    I second the uova in camicia as great choice for brunch. Start with brûlée topped grapefruit half and blood orange prosecco.

    Great Italian restaurant. Love the pasta dishes. If you walk in, expect a one hour wait (no matter what the hostess says).

    Great outdoor seating and doors the swing back to create the feeling of patio dining at almost every table. Love the service.

    Burrata, served with vine cherry tomatoes drizzled with a balsamic reduction, is a perfect blend of Italian flavors! Delizioso!

    Brunch is pretty good. It's not too busy. Try the poached eggs with artichoke and mushroom!

    Dinner & wine with a friend or two at the bar is the best option. Brussels sprout salad + lemon pasta for the win.

    Staff a little distracted, but a seat outside, a glass of verdicchio and the lemon pasta can't be beat...

    Brunch, brunch, brunch! If you get a chance to visit Morandi, you’ll know what we mean. Great food, great location, and a perfect patio.

    Get the grilled chicken. Sounds like a stupid thing to order at a restaurant, but it's literally PERFECT.

    Found this off a passive 4sq recommendation. Get the meatballs!

    Tagliatelle alla bolognese is to die for! Wine by the glass is very overpriced, though.

    2 little-known, mouthfilling red wines: Agricola's '04 Tintilia (See 'Molise; the tintilia grape yields dark-colored monsters); Allegrini’s ‘07 “Palazzo della Torre” (See 'Veneto'; a 'baby Amarone')

    Good burrata and amazing prosciutto crepe. The frittata was just ok, not amazing.

    Weekday breakfast is my jam. Literally. The toast with ricotta & jam is an entire other level of bread warmed in an oven.

    Delicious food but service is not so good. Many waiters but they just wander around and don't really pay attention to what's going on with customers.
