Cacio e Vino

This restaurant is superb and is probably the best Italian food I've ever had. The service is great, the staff and owners are very warm and interactive with their customers. The setting is quaint and cozy yet romantic. The only down side is that its a very small space and does feel overcrowded once it's busy. They should expand! But the food certainly makes up for the rubbing of the elbows.

This is a real find - true Sicilian/Italian food in NYC! There are not enough words to say enough good things about this restuarant. The food is lick the plate outstanding. And the staff is all Italian - as in from Italy - and the place is filled with native Italians as well - which says something about the great food.

1. Inform diners that they are ordering the last bottle of the wine they like. Do not wait to tell them until they are done and are on the verge of re-ordering. 2. Go easy on the salt. Linguine ai frutti di mare was too salty. 3. Do something about the non acceptance of Visa and Mastercard. At the very least, indicate in your website that you only accept American Express. 4. Train staff on how to properly and correctly prepare bills. 5. If diners choose from the selection of cheese and cold cuts for appetizer, do point out to them which is which. Still, the Bianca al crudo is perfect!!!!

This place is amazing! I have tried most of the Italian restaurants in the East Village and this is my new favorite. They deliver too. Highly recommended!

We got to Cacio e Vino without reservations and were seated quickly despite the large crowd. The food was made as Italian food ought to be prepared (i.e., pasta very al dente), and the wine selection was wide and reasonably priced. Try their Nero d'Avola.

We were a party of 9 for my good friend's birthday, and we had a really good time. The pizza was just amazing. We shared several flavors though I think my favorites were the Norma,and the Margherita which was out of this world. Also, everyone who tried the tiramisu agreed it was one of the best they've ever had.

Ordered the cotto e funghi pizza on Friday night, two cotto calzones on Saturday, and a calzone plus the carpaccio pizza on Sunday. All for delivery, so I can't speak to the atmosphere. This is the best pizza I've had outside of Italy, period. We look forward to trying pastas and other dishes. One slight annoyance: delivery guy had no change whatsoever. Otherwise, we're just really excited to discover a place like this in the neighborhood.
