Wonderful spot

We took a small group of journalism students here after a day spent at Columbia University for an annual conference during third week of March two years in a row. Both times, we enjoyed delicious food at good price in a comfortable and hip atmosphere. It was well worth the trip both times.

It took 10 minutes for them to give us the menu after sitting down. Another 10 to come back. Then the food was mediocre. Although it is cheap and the soup was good.

A little small place, but comfortable. Typical for New York City the service was good. The pasta was excellent. I had the gnocchi and it was a hit!

I stopped in at bread for a late night bite. Quick service, friendly staff, and a very tasty meal and wine. I would recommend to anyone 👌

We stopped in for breakfast and had a great frittata and delicious cup of coffee. It feels like a neighbourhood drop in spot with a friendly but cool vibe. Great art on the walls for sale. Friendly service. I would definitely go back to try lunch or dinner.

Great lunch place, or find yourself lucky and get a table on the street at night and enjoy a late night cup of coffee or wine:)

I was just walking by and saw the line of people buying babka. I went in and the smell just took my breath away. Not only do they have delicious baked goods but the hummus looked incredible. I bought the babka and I can tell you it's worth the wait in line. I was so happy to discover this place... More

There is nothing to dislike. Everything they bake is fantastic but the Babka is truly exceptional. They also serve café style lunch items.

My partner and I walked in here hoping to enjoy a nice hearty meal on our last day in. New York. The waiter served us cold water. I asked for water at room temperature which never arrived. I ordered a lasagne and my husband some tomato pasta. My lasagna was horrible. Worse than a school dinner and had the consistency... More

Wonderful, charming soho restaurant. Italian, fresh. Great service, not formal, friendly, accommodating. The bowl of olives, fried fresh calamari add a bit of lemon to the fresh tomato sauce, arugula salad with fresh sliced aged Parmesan. Beet carpaccio wonderful fresh flavors, the vegetarian lasagna is superb.

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.
