Meet Frankie. His parents founded this restaurant and he makes a badass limoncello and loves Maine. This place treats you like family. The wine, pesto, and tartufo were great. I would go again.

First, they have a B rating from the NYC health department. Despite that, I went in tonight with a friend. The "hostess" sat us at a table that had brown stains on the paper covering the table cloth. I asked the"hostess"if they could change the...More

Expensive. It seems that all red dished shared the same sauce. Dry chocolate cake. Ignore the shrimps cocktail. Rude waiter, took the change without even asking.

If you are looking for modern glitz and glamour, this is not it. If you are looking for a real New York experience complete with autographed Frank Sinatra pictures then this one is for you. When you are there just ask for Frank from the...More

My husband and I stopped in at Gaetana's on a very busy night. Yet the waiter found us a small table perfect for just two. Even though they were hosting a party, the waiter took the time to make sure our visit was a good...More

This is a neighborhood joint, in the best sense. It's decorated in standard "what the tourists expect from an Italian restaurant," with photos of Sinatra, Italian landmarks, etc. The music is the Rat Pack. The menu is pretty standard, but dishes are done well. Not...More

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the
West Village is one of the city’s most coveted
addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and
cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,
this neighborhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.
Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
