I had the best sucking pig I've ever had before. Everything about this restaurant is amazing. The atmosphere is great for a romantic dinner and also great for friends.

Recently opened "Peasant' was a delight to visit. Small in size, yet very friendly service was on show. We selected a salmon, Roast Crispy Duck leg and Taro Chips, Fish Buns which were very spicy (and enjoyed) Pork Rice Rolls and Chicken skewers (Kebabs). The food was well present, tasty and most enjoyable.

Down in uber trendy Nolita, this is a great foodie venue. Here reviews only kill the acoustics never the food, but what else can be expected in a part of the world where everything is made from fair faced concrete,including the bar.That is Soho etc. Again a single diner, I was placed at the bar where the full menu was...

The seating was disappointing because it is set up so that you are sitting right next to a stranger. I would have preferred to have more space in between for privacy(and we had made reservations weeks ahead). My boyfriend ordered the suckling pig and the portion was very small. It looked like a few slices on top of something else...I... More

This restaurant has a very nice interior. We ended up with a waiter who was a car salesman in disguise. Food was nothing special - other than the swordfish. I would avoid it as it was fairly pricey but forgettable. There are much better Italian restaurants in NYC in this price range

Met friends in basement wine bar. We had very nice bottle of wine, thin crust traditional pizza, and octopus, all of which was good. Nice atmosphere of brick and stone wall /pillars. Long wood narrow tables shared among parties. Not great, but pleasant.

Recently visited Peasant for dinner whilst in NYC on vacation. We found it via Yelp, and decided to take a gamble. Any we were pleased we did. We made a reservation, but arrived a little early and they managed to seat us right away. The server was attentive and friendly, and explained the specials in lots if detail. (Whole suckling... More

This is truly traditional Italian food. Beautiful! Thoroughly recommend. Plenty of choice of Italian wines to accompany the food, and they even allowed us to take half a loaf of bread home with us - it was great!

It wasn't the skimpy portions. It wasn't the unappealing main courses. It wasn't the tasteless chewy steak. It wasn't the $100 tip placed on the bill regardless of whether service was go or bad. It was the $21 charged because I brought in a birthday cake. One would think that after spending as much as I did they would have... More
