Villa Mosconi is a family-run restaurant located in the heart of New York City’s historic Greenwich Village. The restaurant has been serving the same great food under the guidance of the Mosconi family since 1976 at the same location on MacDougal Street between Bleecker and West Houston streets. The restaurant offers superb authentic Northern Italian cuisine that reflects the family’s origins in the Emilia-Romagna region of Italy.

Red sauce Italian food at its best!

My husband and I have eaten here for a couple of years. The food and service are consistently stellar. As is the wine list. Don't ponder it, just book the table and enjoy.

I cannot believe the high ratings on Trip Advisor for this mediocre place... I quickly checked their page before having dinner there, but maybe I should have looked a bit further into the comments. The quality of the products is bad, the cooking is bad. My hubby ordered fish, which was completely tasteless. I ordered a veal scaloppini alla bolognese...... More

During a weekend in NY we were looking for a nice romantic Italian restaurant for a Saturday night dinner. After strolling down McDougal we found Villa Mosconi. Wonderful little place. Great service from beginning to end. Appetizer was not your normal fare, exquisite polenta. Entrees were quite good although not quite special enough to give 5 stars but I would... More

We first went to this restaurant when we were looking for a place to have a rehearsal dinner. the food was excellent and so was the service. the best part of the meal was dessert- they make a great Zabaglione (Italian custard). We had the rehearsal dinner there and everyone raved about it. The food was great and the garden... More

We were staying in Times Square, but we decided to take the train down to walk around the Village. Since both of us had a craving for Italian food, we decided to "google" Italian restaurants in the area. Fortunately for us, we found Villa Mosconi on MacDougall Street. While it didn't look like much from the outside, we were pleasantly... More

I've been to Villa Mosconi numerous times and each time was perfect! My family and I come here for special occasions and for dinner with no special occasion in mind. It's the Italian style food that I am used to. If you want them to change a dish a bit or make something special for you, it's no problem. And,... More

The place to enjoy a fine meal with friends. Six of us have been dining here for past ten years. Service is professional and food is fresh and prepared as order. Specials include meat, fish & pasta and are always extensive and tasty. Stop by John's Bar for a pre meal adult refreshment. Check out the Who's Who Photo Gallery.

It's easy to forget what year it is at Villa Mosconi. It could be the present day or it could be 1955. VM is a throwback to the NYC Italian restaurants of years gone by, and all in a good way. At the entrance is a full service bar where you might find the bartender watching a ball game, or... More

Staying in Greenwich Village

Neighborhood Profile
Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to get a feel for this diverse and energetic neighborhood. You’ll find NYU students, street performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess. Stroll the streets to discover a mix of majestic town homes and hidden bars and restaurants that give this neighborhood an old-school residential feel. When the sun goes down, check out one of the famous jazz or comedy clubs that still packs them in every night.
