This place is welcoming and has a nice garden room. Unfortunately our waiter was rude initially. Once he realized it may affect his tips his demeanour changed. Our food was good. I’d give it a second try.

Very good Italian food that doesn't try to set the world alight. Pizzas are delicious and well-priced for this area of NYC. The decor is genuinely old with some interesting 19th century features. The house itself has a very interesting history - a stopping point...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.
