Lots of different seating areas from a sunny terrace to a cozy dark basement. Live music in the bar at night. Menu is limited but the food is delicious. Lasagnas are good, and the calzones are huge. Bruschetta is tasty. Bottles of wine from $30....More

We ate in the very pretty heated garden. Pizzas were good although my caprese salad was a bit underwhelming.Service friendly and efficient. Very popular and deservedly so. Close to NYU and Washington Square.

Just a mere steps away from Washington Square Park and NYU, this Italian café is my absolute favorite. The pizza and paninis are superb. Add in a couple of drinks and dessert...you've got yourself a perfect meal. It's a cozy spot, and the year-round garden...More

Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was
here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter
culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for
its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to
get a feel for this diverse and energetic
neighborhood. You’ll find NYU students, street
performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the
fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess.

The restaurant has plenty of tables for two and therefore the turnover is high - people are arriving and leaving frequently and even if they were busy I'm confident you'd get a table within a few minutes.
