Protypical Family-Style Italian Restaurant

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... read more

From the welcome to that last wave goodbye this is a place to dine. The food, and service are top draw! A favorite is the butterflied veal chop, with home made pasta. A family owned and operated establishment since 1976.

This is a classic, old style Italian restaurant in the Village. Waiters were Italian, no "froo-froo" Italian dishes, just good old style Italian food. Not a lot of atmosphere, but if you're looking for good old style, authentic Italian food, this is it. I joke that this is the type of place Michael Corleone would come out of the bathroom... More

This is by far the best Italian food you'll ever devour. Excellent home made pasta, perfectly cooked veal, delicious appetizers, entrees, desserts and terrific staff and owners! Every time we've been here, the food was outstanding, the atmosphere was fun and friendly and we claimed one dish was better than the last with every bite. It's a hidden treasure in... More

Could not have been more pleased with this place. We wandered in while walking through Grenwich Village and what a gem! Although we were from out of town, most of the folks there were locals, and the staff seemed to know everyone by name. The service was very attentive; our waitress answered all of our questions and even offered to... More

Mosconi's is the greatest. I have been going there since the late 70's. I was just there on Valentines day and had a fantastic meal with another couple. For my appetizer I had the baked artichoke which is such a treat. They were always a staple at family dinners but now Mosconi's is the only place I get the dish.... More

My wife and I have been going to Villa Mosconi for almost thirty years. We used to live in NY so it used to be often, no that we live elsewhere, it's only when we visit NYC. The place never changes and that's a very good thing indeed. Big portions of Italian classics done consistently and well every time! Prices... More

Loved this little gem of a place. Found it whilst wandering on our first night in NY and had a great meal. Fantastic service, friendly, home from home, family restaurant. Recommend and would certainly return.

We came with a large group last Saturday and were seated in the back room with brick and a lot of glass. The service ( Jerry and another waitress) were outstanding. Very friendly and knowledgeable. The apps were delivered to the table and served family style and all of them were delicious. The entrees from the fish, veal chops, etc... 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.
