    Overrated. Butter on everything, underwhelming food, and slow service.

    Not really feeling the new menu, and I don't think it's coming back. DO like the gin/tomato water drink tho.

    Octopus, kale salad, orecchiette, agnolotti, chicken alla diavola. And oysters! (if they have them)

    Emily Wilson · August 13
  • Nick A.

    Great vibe. The corn ravioli was spectacular.

    Nick Andlinger · August 7
  • Monica D.

    The new menu is delicious and fun, with lots of small plates and fresh, seasonal flavors.

    Love the sardine

    laura ramirez · July 24
  • Catherine P.

    It's almost a less buttoned up version of Carbone. Think hip hop blasting with perfectly cooked pasta dishes. Try the orecchiette & the gnocchi.

  • Brad G.

    The burger has odd toppings (taleggio, pancetta, escarole, roasted tomatoes) but it all goes down easily with a light beer. Read more

    You should just order every pasta and eat them one by one and then relish in your good decisions.

    Overrated. The food was bland. It's pretty but expected more flavor.

    Black pasta and olive oil cake both incredible!

    Some of the best octopus I've had. Millennium Falcon cocktail was great.

    The orecchiette is divine

    The black spaghetti is at a whole new level

    Good but the pesto was too overpowering

    One of the best the Village has to offer. Small and intimate with a bar. The food is outstanding. Not inexpensive, but very reasonable for the quality. Reservations are a must for prime time.

    Octopus and Chicken Mousse apps to start. Pasta's are all amazing. agreat:black spaghett

    Good ambiance. The agnolotti is delicious and the cod is moist. The olive oil cake could do without. Glad to have gone.

    Best service, best drinks, best food.

    Ryan Stansky · December 12, 2014

    The burger is a Pat LaFrieda blend of brisket, chuck and short rib -

    So sad I didn't order the beef carpaccio. It was beyond good!

    Nicolette Romero · November 2, 2014
  • John B.

    Try the veal head (brought to table)

    Hearty Italian Dishes. Strong cocktails, a varied wine list, oysters, fresh pastas, and rustic Italian entrees bring a fun-loving, hungry, and attractive crowd. Killer Soundtrack

    If you get in good with the waiters they might bring you a glass of Amaro on the house.

    Service, the gnocchi was the best I 've had!

    Favorite restaurant in New York City. The aged steak and their fresh pastas are to die for - must go

    Sean Dunleavy · September 1, 2014
  • Lorna H.

    Beef cheek ravioli, black spaghetti and tuna Milanese are out of this world.

    Lorna Hagen · August 25, 2014
  • Bin Y.

    They now serve a Pat LaFrieda burger from 5-7pm, while stocks last. The tater tots and deep fried chick peas are great too

    Foie gras pasta

  • What's Good Here

    Great atmosphere, well executed rustic dishes. Try the octopus, arctic char, kale salad. The service at this Italian charmer is excellent. The duck ragu with foi gras is the dish to order here.

    Brunch was eerily quiet and dark, but it's fantastic for dinner!

    Kate Shaw · August 7, 2014
  • Heath T.

    Great music and late night atmosphere.

    Heath Terry · August 6, 2014

    We always start with “Tombstone Sunday Nights” from the cocktail list and an order of Octopus! We’re crushing on the Chicken Liver Mousse, the Beef Cheek Agnolotti, & Duck! Always order the Polenta!

    CITY GRIT · August 5, 2014
  • Caroline R.

    Great spot for a special occasion. They even brought out prosecco when they heard it was our anniversary! Try the octopus, gnocchi, and agnolotti!

    Perla is my new favorite restaurant in NYC. Everything is incredible. Don't miss the Pici with Duck Ragu & Foie Gras, Leg of Lamb & Belly, or Beef Tongue. Read about my visit on WinstonWanders below! Read more

    Much better than its sister store which only sells lingerie and doesn't even permit men to try anything on

    John Humiston · March 1, 2014
  • Preeti S.

    Three times now and consistently fantastic. Some of my faves are the octopus, linguini with sea urchin (pls bring it back!), the lamb, and pork chop. Great cocktails and wine list too.

    #FabuLIST #DubiDO the pastas are a must get at this place. Try the Orecchiette italian sausage broccoli rabe and gnocchi with tomato sauce. #DubiDONT polenta was too salty and pretty bland

    Chelsea Dubinsky · February 16, 2014
  • Wayne S.

    Mike Toscano is a terrifically intellectual chef who does delicious things with Italian food. The place is a bit load and hip, but the food make it worth it.

    Wayne Surber · February 12, 2014
  • Esther S.

    Definitely one of my top ten spots! Not the easiest res to get - it's a small restaurant. Type of place that you remember how good the meal and service was. Low key but fun too! Loved it.
