Happened by and was pleasantly surprised at peasant with wonderful pasta with clam sauce, the roast pig and the octopus appetizer. Atmosphere is great and the food fabulous. It is nothing fancy and very rustic but worth a visit.

A sales rep took a large party to dinner and the mix of yumminess was shared by all. It was weird going down into a basement for our "private" dining event but it was cozy and cute.

One of my favourite restaurants that I make a point of visiting every time I'm in NYC. The Chilli octopus is simply amazing and every dish there is well done. A bit on the pricey side however.

As the review stated below, this place is good but not great. The food was pretty solid but nothing spectacular that would make me want to come back again. The biggest disappointment came in the portion side. I ordered the Tagliolini with Veal Ragu which was very good but for a pasta dish in the mid $20 range, I expected... More

Mixed emotions about this place...my cocktails and Apps were very good, but my a Wild Boar Ragu and wifey's Pumpkin Risotto were both just good. Not bad, just not wow factor. The "direct from Venice" waiter was attentive and charming, and his broken English accent added to the ambience. The room was cozy and filled with a lot of young... More

Dined at Peasant on October 30, 2014. We were walking by and two guests living stopped us to say how wonderful their meal was and to make sure to eat at Peasant. Lucky for us, as this was highlight of our trip. Our waiter was incredibly knowledgeable about the menu, a huge fan of the chefs, and provided excellent service.... More

We were lucky to get a table for 11 even though we booked that afternoon. The table was in the wine bar down stairs and was a bit cramped and dark. However, the food was fantastic - no complaints from anyone! Would definitely go back again but with a smaller group and a table in the main room.

Razor clams appetizer was really good. Husband's rabbit lasagna was amazing. My pasta with mantis shrimp was super hard to eat (got stabbed in the lip a few times by those suckers), but really delicious. Panna cotta for dessert was tasty too!

Peasant is chef operated and owned - the best kind of restaurant. Fran DiCarlo - one of the all time greats, so well respected by other chefs, for many years. The food is exciting and wonderful, so much prepared in their brick oven. The menu is oh so authentically Italian, with creative and exciting offerings. And everything tastes terrific. Service...
