Small restaurant and our server was friendly. Salmon was delicious but the Chicken Al Limone was tough.

I enjoyed my meal at Peppe Rosso, printed on their menu is something like " great food at great prices" and i would agree with that. The rice ball appetizer was made to order, with arborio rice. Entree of caicco & pepe over bucatini pasta...hit the spot. Seafood medley special over pasta was really enjoyed by the wife. My daughter was a fan of her pasta special. Definitely will be back.More

Stopped in by chance for a quick supper before a Broadway play. What a great discovery. We had the special black pepper gnocchi with shrimp and calamari, which was amazing. We will be back any time we are in NYC.

This was a truly satisfying comforting luxurious meal after a day of exploring the city. Wonderful service, reasonable prices, lovely classic bit creative menu. Quality ingredients and touches, rustic homey decor, good energy. My teenage son is an Italian food aficionado and everything was done...just right. A great last night in NYC before we went to bed in a happy food coma.More

This restaurant is overall pretty good. The atmosphere is pretty intimate, but casual. The service is also really good. We got the tomato and basil bruschetta and the calamari for our appetizers. The calamari was very good, however the bruschetta was decently soggy. We also...got complimentary focaccia and sliced baguette. We got four entrees, including the cacio e Pepe, oxtail ragu, penne tre porcellini, and the seafood with black linguini. All of the dishes were very good, and we had no complaints with them. Just as a warning, the drink selection was fairly limited. There were only a couple sodas, none of which were diet. There are also only two draft beers, neither of which were available this early Friday night. The restaurant, even with its odd location by Chinese restaurants and shops, was very good.More

Whilst on NYC visit, came across fabulous local coffee house, best coffee during our week long stay. Panini wasn’t bad either, worth a lunchtime visit. Thanks

Went on recommendation from a friend. Quiet place, excellent service, good food. Kale Cesar salad was fresh. I had rigatoni with salmon in pink sauce. Very good.

We were staying in SoHotel and found several restaurants and bars nearby had poor food and service. We happened upon this restaurant and went in for dinner. The owner greeted us and offered a romantic seat for two near the window, the view was the...street as the owner joked "a view of the sea". We shared the octopus salad and each had a glass of Sangiovese I ordered Bucatini Cacio e Pepe and my husband had the evening special, linguine with shellfish. The restaurant offers Gluten Free pasta as well. The service was superb and the food delicious. The owner is on hand and talks to all of the customers, reminded me of Italy.More

Another NYC place to grab happy hour and a meal. Cozy and comfortable with friendly staff. The place smells wonderful and the presentation of the food excites. Just a cool place near little Italy to stop in and be a guy from the neighborhood.

Ok, not on mulberry st. So what ? Mott is just next to mulberrry. Also, probably because of the shabby look, both outside and interior, this is not your mulberry tourist usual ripoff. Genuine Italian: why would they watch a Juventus-bologna soccer match otherwise on...the huge tv screen at the back of the restaurant? Very friendly staff, delicious food - try the penne DEL tre porcellini-, reasonable portions, very reasonable prices. If you must it in littlE Italy, dine there, but don’t expect Diet Coke or decaf, they only serve good food.More
