We brought a couple who have never been to New York. The problem: it was last minute and we picked a Saturday at the height of the holiday season and had little time. Obviously we couldn't go to any well known place near Macy's because of long wait times. I checked Trip Advisor and picked this because of reviews. We... More

very nice place to relax after NY Marathon. With my family, I had a very nice dinner. The service was superb, we got a queit corner (on our request) and the steak was cocked 100% to my instruction. The wine list consisted of several choises in lower end of the price list, but acceptable (unless you prefer a claret)

If you want to find something of real New York and a real Italian restaurant in NY, then VDP is undoubtedly the place. Understated yet authentic, friendly and accommodating, I will definitely return on my next trip to New York. I wish them every success!

Our family chose this place after reading the glowing reviews on Trip Advisor. We must have been there on an off night as it was average at best. When we arrived the music was absolutely blaring! (kinda weird for an Italian place) They did turn it down when we asked them to. Food was bland and the portions were small.... More

Based upon the reviews, decided we had to try this quaint place. We had the Lobster Ravioli, Veal in balsamic with Arugula & Parmigiano, and a Salad. All was delicious, very flavourful and authentic. The restaurant/bar was packed and lively. Our wonderful waiter and paisano Paulo from Venice made our visit exceptional. Finished with an espresso and Limoncellos. Molto bene,... More

Cosy spot in East Village but meal disappoints. Found using TripAdvisor ' s Near Me Now function. Comfy cushioned window seats face into the candlelit warmth of this little Italian bistro. Grilled tuna with cannelini beans was disappointing, bland and boring.
