We came as part of a food tour, but this was the spot where we had our main portion of the meal. The pasta was very good, and very fresh. The atmosphere was nice and we were not rushed. Would like to have tried more of a variety. Next time.

Have dined at PO many times. Never dissapoints. Service is spot on. All the dishes are fantastic. Wine list is affordable yet perfectly matched to the menu. Guinea Hen was perfect, risotto fantastic, antipasta belissimo!!

We went with another couple to this Italian restaurant and were delighted with the food.The place was intimate and cozy and yet had ample space around each table. Our pasta dishes were simply fabulous and the accompanying salads and appetizers were tastefully presented and also wonderful. The place felt like a real find and we will be sure to go... More

Okay, so Mario Batali started his food empire here, but he is no longer associated with the place The food was good, with a seasonal menu based on currently available ingredients. But, there are lots of other Italian restaurants that do the same. The staff was welcoming and attentive, again also available at many other places. The price for a... More

We enjoyed a wonderful meal on a rainy and cold night. We had the five course tasting meal and every course was fabulous. The flavors are incredible. Small and cosy atmosphere with great service. Would love to come back again.

This place was exceptional, the food was some of the best Italian I've had in awhile and would probably be the first place I'd recommend to a friend. We did the tasting menu which had great variety and every single dish was amazing. Where Po really stood out was their generous portion sizes and the fact that we never felt... More

Small place and very friendly and prompt service. Delicious food, and reasonably priced for NYC. Very fresh food and pleasant meal. A wonderful place for a great meal.

For starters, the bean toast -- I mean white bean bruschetta -- was awesome. I figured if they can make simple beans taste this good, I will have them with every course. So I started with the bean ravioli with brown butter and it did not disappoint. On paper it sounds a bit boring but the fresh pasta and killer... More

Loved this restaurant in the quaint downtown village and would go back in a heartbeat. If I lived there, I would be a regular.

Met a few friends for a late dinner. It is a small intimate room - good for a date but it worked well for a business dinner for four people. The tasting menu was an exceptional and delicious choice (and a good value at $55 per) - still remember the tortellini. They had a good wine list and the bar... More
