We were down in East Greenwich and it was time to eat, and we wanted Italian. When we searched on TripAdvisor this one came up solidly rated so rather than trek the mile plus to Little Italy, we gave it a try. Good antipasto, nice wine, excellent service. I had the fettuccine momma and my wife the gnocchi and we... More

I came here with a friend before a show and had a very good pasta meal, and a decent (and decently priced) bottle of wine. It does have an authentic feel, right down to the Roman street plaque out front, but it's a little too cramped for me. Also, note that it is cash only.

I absolutely loved it here. You cannot do much better than Via della Pace if you are in the mood for excellent authentic Italian cuisine. When I was there, all the proceeds from the Amatriciana entree went to help the victims of the earthquake in Amatrice. Naturally, I ordered it and was not disappointed. It was absolutely delicious. There is... More

If you feel like having Italian food and traveling to Italy is not an option, then I strongly recommend you go eat at Via della Pace. The restaurant is beautiful and the food tastes just the way it should, it is definitely genuine Italian cuisine. Big up for the staff as well!!!

Staying in East Village

Neighborhood Profile
East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village, which offers plenty of unique small businesses catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the old-time neighborhood feel that you can still experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to wander up and down the streets searching for the newest hip spot, or an old-school favorite. In the center of the neighborhood, Tompkins Square Park serves as a gathering point for the New Yorkers that call the East Village home. The people-watching here is hard to beat.
