We were a party of 10 so we were able to sample a wide variety of appetizers, entrees and desserts. Not shy(family and friends) the plates were going up and down the table. We were seated in a very nice back room with a skylight that I enjoyed more than the darker front of the restaurant. We had been here... More

Friends suggested we go here so we agreed, but I have little to say that's good. It was empty when other places were packed. It felt like a church basement. The food was mediocre at best, one dish was unetable. The menu is way too long and it's old school Italian in a not-good way. Go to Babbo or Lupa.... More

Our second visit just as good as the first a couple of years ago. Only a short stroll from Washington Square. Friendly staff go out of their way to make you feel comfortable. Veal limone and parmigiana both very good as well as the spaghetti. Great find in the area. We will be back on our next trip!

A warm comfortable atmosphere, fine authentic food and an attentive, friendly waitstaff makes Villa Mosconi one of our favorite restaurants. Just a block from the center of Greenwich Village area and a short walk from Washington Square, this has become the go to for a casual dinner or a special family gathering.

Our waiter was great, and offered variations on the the listed choices for us (different pasta or sauce with the entree). Servings were generous and the general atmosphere felt like a trip back in time. Loved it.

If you are looking for a quiet restaurant with comfortable seating, elegant but cozy atmosphere, the best service from the staff and good Italian food, this is the restaurant for you. I feel like royalty when I dine at Mosconi. I have had parties and entertained guests here and I have never been disappointed. This is a family business and... More

Have been going to this restaurant for over 5 or 6 years now. With all the choices in Manhattan this is one of the best. Exceeds expectations at every level, food is excellent, many choices but the best are the waiters. Everyone makes you feel you are a special guest, between Carl, Danny, Jerry & Mario they all are terrific.... More

You can always count on this family feeling restaurant to have excellent food and warm service. I've never been disappointed! Great location too. Not overpriced and definitely not a stuffy place to bring family or friends. I'm a native NY'er.... but I can see where this would be an ideal spot to bring visitors from out of town!

A family run place with classic old style Italian food that can't be beat. A long time customer because they are consistent and treat you like family. The veal ala Milanese is a personal favorite. Homemade pastas and deserts complete the meal.

One believes that nothing has changed in the interior of this old standard and I don't think anything has. Just OK.
