Went to Bar Pitti based on a recommendation from a friend that this was the "best pasta in the world", but sadly, it was just so-so. Service was ok at best. Seating was terribly uncomfortable. Offers beer & wine only and be prepared to pay with cash as no credit cards are accepted. Will not be back.

After tramping through Greenwich Village we needed a glass of wine and a light meal. The Bar Pitti filled the bill. There was scaffolding over the patio which did not add to the abmiance but it was still a pleasant place to stop. The waiter was friendly and helpful even though we explained we only wanted a light meal. We ordered two glasses of wine and shared a appetiser of tuna with some white beans. The food was very good. The wine selection was also good. The ambiance was pleasant. Recommended

I had reasonable expectations for this restaurant as it was suggested by a friend, but I have to say it has been a long time since I've encountered such rudeness in a waitstaff. They sat us at a table, then yelled at us that the table was reserved for six and accused us of seating ourselves (!) then tried to rush us through dinner by taking plates away before we were finished, not offering more water or coffee refills, etc. It made what should have been a pleasant evening an unpleasant one. Will NEVER go back. There are plenty of wonderful Italian restaurants in this area-- Bar Pitti is not one of them.

Everytime I'm in New York I always make a point of eating at Bar Pitti.
The food and service never disappoints and the place is always buzzing with a friendly neighbourhood atmosphere.
No reservations and no credit cards but nevertheless it's still my top tip for NYC.
