Location and contact

Located in the heart of Nolita, Epistrophy has been the local neighborhood's favorite home away from home for the past 10 years. Serving a casual chic array of Italian food influenced heavily by the Sardinian/Italian region with seasonal specials. It is a great place to spend an afternoon seated on the sidewalk cafe to take in the Nolita/Soho atmosphere while drinking an excellent glass of wine. Live local jazz musicians play on Sunday nights at 7:30pm.

The food is really good and although the staff is very friendly they were not trained at all. The place was packed, super loud (uncomfortably loud) and terribly hot inside. There’s a heater on top of us that the waitress refused to turned off. 😒....More

Located in a neighborhood with many bars and specialty shops. Cozy area. We were there for an early lunch, shortly afterwards the place was packed. Don't always have everything on the menu but there are enough options to wet your appetite. Extensive wine list and...More

Went here for an anniversary dinner, well for any romance you should't go here :) Food was wonderful; looked pretty and tasted really good, so no comments on that, but we couldn't even hear what the other was saying since it was so very loud.

Unpleasant feeling about this restaurant! Food was all right however service was unfriendly and pushy. Therefore we’ve signed off limited tip on our bill. However the restaurant has charged 20% tip instead of what we have signed off on. 20% would be the standard tip...More

This place was a right turn into the unknown for us, and it paid off like a good movie! We've been very tired of NYC Sardinian (don't even mention Italian), we have 46 years of Sardinia in us (hence Mirtone). Usually NYC Sardinian is dumbed-down...More

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,
