    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

    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!

    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
  • Heather S.
    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.

    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.

    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!

    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

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

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

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

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

    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).

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

    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')
