Old style Italian in NYC

We planned on trying Italian and this was my daughter's choice. We started with the at the bar to soak up the unusual ambiance. The rear of the restaurant is the kitchen and the open flame grill along with the pig on a spit are quite different than most places. We started with the seasonal... read more

Have been lucky enough to go to this restaurant a number of times over the years and is always brilliant. Fresh traditional Italian in a wonderful environment.

Recommended by a friend, Peasant turned out to be the best dinner of three ( including the always fantastic Gramercy Tavern). Beautiful rustic setting, terrific vibe, spot on service were only the entrées to dinner. I can't stand Burrata. Until last night. The imported version was complimented by roasted tomatoes and a touch of oil. Terrific. The waiter under sold... More

We booked a table for Friday night (on Thanksgiving week) on the recommendation of my partner's colleague (he's a Brit but travels to the US regularly and always makes time to visit this restaurant). On the day however, we had to make a change to the booking to make it earlier and this was achieved easily. The restaurant is beautiful... More

If you want wonderful simple country Italian in a rustic setting its hard to beat this place. There's some wonderful looking roasted meats, but we'd had a big lunch earlier in the day so we just had a ragu pasta and skate for dinner which was delicious. I can't wait to back and try the roast suckling pig. The service... More

First the Positives: beautiful "old world" type Of building ... Just what one would imagine an old Italian NYC restaurant to be... Great brick ovens, atmosphere great.. Service very good and bread with the ricotta cheese amazing...not so good, the actual food. We got a arugula salad and margarita pizza...just was bland tasting on all fronts.... Disappointed with the food... More

You must try pig liver and lamb. There are so many more dishes we could not try out which means that we will have to come back.

The meals we had were average. The pepperoni pizza is extremely bland despite the chili. The rague pasta was too salty and the desert pie looked a lot better than it tasted. The crust was under cooked. The food aside, the service was not great. The setting was, however, fabulous. Overall, a disappointing experience.

Three ladies gathered for a birthday dinner and left very happy. The food was truly an experience. We shared a grilled vegetable salad that managed to surprise and please. Three of us shared one salad, and had a nice little portion to start off our evening. It would be rather filling for one person. Two of us opted for the... More

I'm a lifelong resident of little Italy in New York City. And peasant is one of my favorite restaurants it's not your traditional baked ziti eggplant parm kind of Italian Restaurant.

Staying in Nolita

Neighborhood Profile
Nolita
Despite being just off of busy Houston Street, Nolita maintains a low-key vibe that makes it a pleasant retreat in the heart of lower Manhattan. Short for “North of Little Italy,” Nolita was once considered to be part of Little Italy. Today, the neighborhood is popular with young fashionistas popping in and out of the chic independent boutiques that line Mulberry, Mott and Elizabeth Streets. In addition to shopping, there are cozy restaurants and sidewalk cafes serving everything from new-school Italian food to the world-famous cronuts. While small in size (Nolita stretches just a few blocks in each direction), it’s a great neighborhood to spend an afternoon people watching, window-shopping, and grabbing a bite to eat.
