Cute place- very small and tables very close together but that was fine- added to the ambiance of a busy, neighborhood type restaurant. Food was just average- veal parm with spaghetti and bucatini cacio de pepe which was actually less than average- tasteless “cheese liquid” of some kind covered with pepper. Side dish of broccolini was great. Best part was the bill came to $50 which included one glass of wine- looked out the window to make sure we were in Manhattan. I would go back and try again. Oh, the server was maybe one of the worst ever- didn’t utter a word just stood there to take our order and then reappeared with the check. Nothing in between - kind of like what you would get in a diner or coffee shop.

went to FIAT 3 times for breakfast. Lovely food and very nice staff especially the French lady who I assume is the owner. Extremely good value and lovely atmosphere. Would recommend.

The food here is pretty decent, but the tables are spaced right next to each other and then stuff isn't very friendly. The prices are a bit high too for being in the lower east side.

Good Italian restaurant. Fabulous quantities and good taste, even though not 100% Italian taste...but acceptable!
