Cacio e Vino

I never want to have pizza for my dinner. I just don't think it's special enough to have for an entree. Here, you can dine like a real Italian and have pizza for dinner! Try the broccoli rabe and sausage pie. The other menu items are great as well. The owner has always been nice. In the summer the front doors are open and it is lovely.

Dropped in with some friends and received a warm welcome. We all had fish in different styles, that were complimented by a bottle of Aglianico del Vulture - note: it's a lengthy wine list, with lots of interesting choices. Good service, with water glasses filled regularly. We'll have to come back for the pizza sometime.

Arrived a bit early for the 7.30 reservation, received a cordial greeting and offered a choice of tables. Service was attentive, wines by the glass were interesting. Grilled pulpo was as nice as I have ever had, and the branzino was very good, too. Our out-of-town foodie friends are coming in a couple of weeks and we will be taking them to Cacio e Vino.

Ok, so I came here at the recommendation of a friend who knows the owner. First, the place did not seem full (half the tables were apparently reserved), but we were made to stand around for 20 minutes. Second, after my friend and I ordered our pizza, we were made to wait 20 minutes without being offered any bread & olive oil. Mind you, this is commonplace when dining in Sicily. Breadsticks and olive oil is generally considered a foreign/American thing. Nonetheless, I wish I knew this simple item was going to take this long. Had two glasses of red wine, which were nothing to rave about. They were 13 dollars each. 13 dollars for a glass of wine in the E. Village? One word: Hustle. Do not take the waitress' recommendation on food as she will definitely recommend only the most expensive items. All in all, one large pie (0nly 6 slices) and 2 glasses (1 each) of wine ran us $55 and change. Take a bite out of that. Call me old school, but I think it's a bit too much for the neighborhood. Anyways, the pizza was delicious, but I think that there are plenty of all good alternatives. Try L'Asso on Kenmare & Mott. Knocks it out of the park. Cacio e Vino: Not recommended.

My reservation was not honored. I did not get an apology from the manager. He just looked at me as though it was my problem, not his. Simple as that. Actually it turns out my troubles at Cacio that night were small, comparatively -- shortly after I arrived an 11-person bachelorette party was forced to stand in the rain for an hour because their table wasn't remotely ready at the appointed time. Yes, the food was good, but I will never go back because I was treated so rudely by the manager.

this is the closest to italian pizza you can get! It's not overflowing with cheese or sauce and the bread is perfect and chewy. I won't eat pizza anywhere else! it's a very cozy and intimate place with great service, too.
