    Good spot for a casual lunch off the High Line. Sit in the back garden.

    Great price and decor but the food falls short. Neither authentic nor classic Italian-American. Undercooked pasta (not al dente) but their tomato sauce was actually pretty good.

    The penne with tomato basil and fresh mozzarella is amazing with a salad for $10 (lunch special)

    You must go to the back! Adorable little garden where you can sit and eat.

    Crispy zucchini with garlic confit and fire roasted cherry tomatoes is amazing! Penne ala vodka also very solid. And as other tips said, very reasonable prices!

    Got the antipasto misto, ravioli with bolegnese and veal scallopine - all were delicious. My only complaint was the courses came out quickly - order slowly if you don't want to eat dinner in 40 min!

    Red sauce was incredible, as for an extra bowl. Also, the eggplant pram.

    Old school Italian at old school prices! Hands down fav dinner spot in Chelsea. Try the gnocchi or the black fettuccini (if they have it as a special).

    Love the policy: no diet coke, no skim milk, no decaf coffee.

    Very charming Italian place. Great place to take a date: romantic lighting, nice ambiance, and delicious food that doesn't cost very much. Their Valentine's Day prix fixe was AMAZING.

    Secret gem. Pastas are top-notch. Good tiramasu, as well. Very well priced. Also close to Tia Pol, another fav.

    If you have to order one sandwich from Pepe Gallo make sure it's "The Spurr" (chicken, avocado and bacon in a hero). Read more

    The specials are money. I didn't think they still had places like this in nyc. Awesome prices!

    Move your bread close to the candles so they catch on fire and strike up conversation with your neighbors.
