I rarely eat Italian food when I travel, since I can have that in my country or I can cook it at home.

I had an awesome porcini mushrooms risotto,... More

This place has a fantastic rustic Italian menu of a wide range of starters, and a big choice of really savory pastas. There is also a very long wine list. And although we didn't have pizza, lots of people were enjoying it. It has a cool, hipster vibe and crowd but not really pretentious. We called on Saturday afternoon for... More

Nice atmosphere, with very friendly staff. Great mains, with great Italian classics, like lasagna and pasta vongole. Only this time with a modern twist, using rabbit meat in the lasagna and a variety of clamps in the pasta. Also great desserts! Definitely would recommend this place!

I love Peasant, the food is phenomenal and I have been coming regularly each time I visit New York. This visit was no exception. Great service and amazingly delicious food. But the noise level was ear ringingly noisier than any restaurant I have been to in NYC, Seattle, Barcelona, Amsterdam, Chicago, and every other city I have traveled to for... More

This place serves authentic Italian food - not Americanized versions. Everything we ate had wonderful flavors. The fresh mozzarella was so delicious. My husband had the lamb served over polenta which was so creamy. I had a special - blue crab risotto. The place was warm and cozy and the service was outstanding.

Consistently excellent Tuscan cuisine. Fabulous dishes cooked in wood burning stove - smells great even out on the street. Homemade ricotta with rustic bread the moment you sit down. this place still rocks.

This was an absolute treat! Went out with friends (4 people in total) We went there on a Friday night (after 9pm) and waited only 20mins for the table. The restaurant is quite big. We got cocktails while we waited. I had Aperol Spritz and it was great. The food was amazing. We had chicken livers and prosciutto mozzarella for... More

Staying in Nolita

Neighborhood Profile
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, there are cozy restaurants and sidewalk cafes serving everything from new-school Italian food to the world-famous cronuts. While small in size (Nolita stretches just a few blocks in each direction), it’s a great neighborhood to spend an afternoon people watching, window-shopping, and grabbing a bite to eat.
