Four of us ate here last night and we were all happy with the experience. My food selection, which I loved, was: Tonnarelli Cacio e Pepe, which is spaghetti in a creamy pecorino romano & pepper sauce-very TASTY. We ordered a bottle of the Soave, and it was perfect with what we all ordered. For dessert, we had an Orange Ice & Ricotta Ice Cream with Pistashcio foam, also yummy; it was refreshingly light, but also quite tasty. The service was FRIENDLY and efficient. And, we sat in the garden, which was LOVELY, except for a rather annoying loud air conditioner. We'll be back.

Me & my boyfriend went there last week , the service was great & the food was delicious. I had the Cacio e Pepe dish & he had the lamb. Both were amazing. Will definitely be returning!

My fiancee and i took a chance on this place and was very pleased with the entire event. We were seated quickly( 6pm on a thursday; we had the place to ourselves) and our waitress had the best accent to accompany the resturant. I ordered the cod fish and my lady ordered the veal. AMAZING!!!!! I will be a repeat offender of my new fav place. I know it can get busy, but i will call to see how the atomosphere is, because I like to dine in a not so busy place. I don't want my cook to rush my order cause there are 5 million other orders to cook. Go to Cacio e Pepe!!!!!

I'd been looking forward to dining here for some time. The Maitre 'd is charming. Got a table quickly. Specials didn't appeal, so I ordered off the menu. The two most exciting- sounding dishes, the shrimp appetizer, and the papardelle pasta were enough to tempt me. The shrimp was overcooked. To a point where no living thing should be cooked. It was a crime. Sent it back. No apology. For a moment, it almost felt like this was a usual reaction. Oh dear. The papardelle, I have to say, was lovely. Though it didn't quite match up with how it was described on the menu. Basically, it was a meaty ragu - and tasty, but the menu - with its mention of drunken broccoli - made it sound more interesting. Failure there as well. The atmosphere? Loud. Rushed. Tense. (Oh, and $ 17 for pasta cacio e pepe? You're kidding! That must be a 3,000% markup on your ingredients. For shame!)

I was there few weeks ago and I can't wait to be back in NYC to have dinner at Caccio e Pepe! I'm Italian, living in the States and be there for one evening make me dream about my Italy! The food is great, Italian style (try the Caccio e Pepe and the Tiramisu'), the atmosphere lets you feel at home and the staff is really nice!

Sure there are probably better Italian restaurants in NYC, but this one is up there. The pasta is among the freshest I've ever had in NY, and the signature dish (the first one on the menu) is absolutely amazing. Simple, but rich and yummy. Prices are a little high but once in a while it's worth it. Service was impeccable, so perhaps other reviewers were there on an off night. Also, ask about their wine specials so you can taste a really expensive glass for a portion of the price.

This was my first visit, and will absolutely be last. From the start when the Maitre'D tried to shove three of us in the corner of a two top, to the slow service (an hour between salad and entree), and ending with a fight with the manager, it was a subpar experience. I am not one to ever call over a manager or complain about food/service. But we waited so long between courses that I just had to say something. The manager was so rude, mentioning that "we Americans" have too high of standards for service. Quote from manager, "this is an Italian restaurant, not an American restaurant... if you don't like the service don't come back." I won't.
