    Good food - Pricey

    The set up is very nice, 3 rooms, 3 ambiances. Friendly staff. Good italian food. HIGH prices. Might go back

    Fabulous experience

    Just went for an assortment of appetizers and small plates. We were extremely happy with every dish. Very tasty! it's a small place (welcome to NYC!), but the service was very friendly and we had a delightful meal.

    Neighborhood favorite

    I have been to Aroma numerous times and have never been disappointed. The food is fresh, fresh, fresh. Lovingly prepared, often with a twist. Recently had a beet salad that I think had cinnamon in it and my husband, an excellent chef himself, couldn't believe he had never thought of it. The service is excellent, knowledgeable and the owners are lovely and really care about their food. The pastas are scrumptious. REcently had a birthday gathering in the "basement" which I love. You feel like you are eating in an old Italian villa. The food was excellent and they took great care of us. I highly recommend Aroma - especially if you live in the hood.

    A Classic New York Evening

    Aroma was designed to be and is a 'neighborhood' place. Yes it is tiny and yes our respective butts were touching as we huddled at the bar but the evening among 4 old friends could not have better. We know the owners well and maybe that's the difference. We were comped numerous apps and an amazing dessert array. My pasta was lovely. And on the small side? Intentional. Americans eat way too much anyway. For a weekday night out with friends for conversaiton, wine, and food that, yes, does transport me back to Italy, try Aroma.

    Underwhelming

    Sat in their "wine cellar" room AKA a dingy basement that smells like bleach. Nothing that was served to me was tasty or even particularly edible. Under-seasoned caesar salad, with no salt on the table. A pasta dish that my friend described as not tasting "fresh." The mix of flavors in the short rib pasta dish did not go together--the whole thing tasted gnarly and slightly rank. Pissed me off that I spent 60-some bucks here. Wine was good, but would never return.

    Small place, small portions

    Nice small space - Good for a weekday night when crowds are down. Like others have posted, they could be a little more generous with the amount of food on the plate . If you're going to serve 'small plates', make the entire menu as such and save the guesswork for the customer. Food was very good when served in a reasonable amount, not so good when the plate took up more space than what was on it. Service was top notch.

    not worth the aggravation

    After trying to get a reservation for a month, we thought we struck gold. Unfortunately, it was lead, just like the pasta. The fear of being seated next to the front door in zero degree weather, immediately sets one up for a series of disappointments. After being seated next to the bathroom, our waitress rattled off the specials for evening. We decided to order the olives, which we quickly realized were complimentary for every other table. What a rip off! The beet salad appeared which was suppose to have gorgonzola cheese as one of the elements on the plate. You needed a magnifying glass in order to locate the cheese. I looked under the beets, and east, west, north and south on the plate, and could not find another miniscule morsel. The baked artichokes were as impressive as chef boy ar dee, and had no taste. Eggplant ravioli was overcooked wallpaper paste, with acidic tomato sauce hiding the mistake. If you request your caesar salad with the dressing on the side, you will not receive the parmesan cheese which is stated on the menu. After asking the runner why there was no parmesan on the salad, he did not understand what I was talking about, and then the waitress appeared, totally clueless that the salad had parmesan at all. The audacity of the children who answer the phone when you call to book a reservation to be so difficult and deterring. You would think you were calling Daniel, and they don't treat patrons with such attitude. For an overpriced East Village rabbit warren, with substandard food, do not waste you time trying to argue on the phone.
