    bum rush indeed

    The place is OK and if you order correctly, reasonably priced but, like other comments, table turning and arrogance is more abundant than the bread. The room is loud and uncomfortable which is probably done on purpose in order to make people leave. I do not like to dine with a stop watch staring at the back of my head.

    A tragic loss

    We've been going to Bar Pitti since it opened (22 yrs?). After moving to NYC from Florence, it was great. We went as often as possible, with our kids as they came along and for extended family gatherings. The waiters were mostly female for years and very friendly. After many years something changed suddenly. The waiters started wearing these pretentious T-shirts, became all male, rude and stupid in a typical arrogant ragazzo way. As many reviewers have said, the bum's rush was the new protocol. (which is extremely unItalian for a restaurant). It's very sad. The food stills seems good, the wine list has never been good, but that's ok. We still go back once in a while but very early, when they don't treat you too rudely. Bad reviews will not effect them, however, since they have always been popular with models, stars,etc who will not experience the insults the rest of us receive. I miss the place and feel badly that the owner made his choice to chase the money and betray his heritage. Che Vergogna!

    Not a true italian pesto

    So difficult to explain to a true italian waiter that pesto sauce is not supposed to be made in the way the restaurant offered me. Pesto in italian means "pestare" - the ingredients in a traditionally made pesto are ground with a circular motion of the pestle in the mortar. Bar Pitti pesto is unappetizing. Instead seems it's made in a blender. Its like a green puree with no taste at all... Sorry but this is too bad for such a well rated restaurant...

    For a person in love...with food

    We went on a whim, drunk with happiness from our walk round the park and along Bleecker Street, but we only had money for one meal! so we asked the owner if it would be possible to share an appetizer and an entree? Not only did he oblige, but he made sure we had double servings of spinach with garlic and pine nuts, and a HUGE salmon. When we asked for the bill we found that we had still, mirabile dictu, enough for two desserts and coffee. We stumbled out after several hours of the best Italian meal I've ever had outside Italy, and I've had quite a lot of those, from Rome to Bologna. We will return, with enough for two meals this time, but nothing will ever top that marvelous day!

    Super Duper authentic italian

    Came to Bar Pitti with my girlfriend and had one of the best italian meals ever, and thats saying a lot as I grew up on italian food. They had the most amazing mozzarella cheese I have ever had imported from Napoli I believe (may have been another city). Every thing was great and perfect. Dessert was to die for

    The atmosphere was excellent. The maitre'd and owner were lovely but the rudeness of our waiter was appalling! He chewed gum, threw the menus and corrected a young table of four people on tipping!
