“Cute little cafe to relax and have a coffee and a nibble”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

This place was close to where I was staying and was looking for something close that didn't require a trip on the subway. This place is cozy much like other places in the city. Service was excellent the hot chocolate was made with real chocolate and milk and had a nice froth on top. Which is good for those like me who don't like whipped cream. Good value dishes are reasonably priced. Please keep in mind it's cash only.

“Charming option”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

This cash only option is very cute and very reasonable, which can be hard to find in this part of town. I went in for breakfast and loved the eggs benedict. friendly french owner and fresh squeezed orange juice, recommended.

“Great find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

Amazing food, very quaint restaurant. Tried to go a restaurant around the corner, but the wait was ridiculous. Just stumbled across the Fiat Cafe and was pleasantly surprised. Amazing Italian dishes that tasted as if your "nonna" was in the kitchen cooking. Very reasonable prices. We had the lasagna, carbonara and tiramisu...all very delicious. Cash only...FYI.

“Chic cafe - great for Brunch.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

Only negative was they don't take credit cards. But it was reasonably priced. Good all round. Great service - a French lady served us, tasty food, good quality, nice decor and great model collection of Fiat 500s!.

“A Genuine New York Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

What an outstanding experience. This city is at its best when you know that you are in New York, and yet somehow you feel you are somewhere else - in this case Italy.
Cafe FIAT a small restaurant, with tables cosily close, so this is not the place for an intimate conversation about your relationship breakup or your forthcoming surgery.
It Is the place for surperb Italian food, good wine and a feeling of welcome.
I had the spaghetti carbonara which was delicious, and worked well with the red wine that was recommended. This was at lunchtime, and I am confident that dinner would be just as good.
Not expensive, warm service.............ticks all the boxes.
