Cacio e Vino
Posted by Arturo on 10/29/2007
I really don't know where to start and what to say about Cacio e Vino cause i'm still too excited but, i'll tell you something ... I live in New York but I'm italian and by that i mean that i've lived 35 of my 37 years there so i should know what I am talking about, so... went to dinner on Monday and the food , the service the place and the atmosphere just blew me away, everything was perfect it's a great combination of all the ingredients you want on a night out in the lower east side in Ny. Food is tipical sicilian-italian, great taste , perfectly cooked, and so fresh (especially fish) it's like eating in a great restaurant right in Sicily, on top of everything the place is cozy, loud but in a good way and they have "Miscela d'Oro" espresso sicilian coffee which was the perfect ending of our wonderful dinner. Can't wait to go back. This is the real deal , best italian (authentic) restaurant in New York. p.s. May i tell you they also have the best wood-oven PIZZA in New York city? Ok i just did.....oh and the wine list.......OMG! Enjoy.

When this restaurant first opened I absolutely loved it. I've been disappointed, however, the last two times I ordered delivery from here. They got my address wrong both times and the delivery person did not carry change both times. After waiting for an hour I ended up paying the deliveryman a $20 for $15 pizza because he had no change, only to find out that the pizza wasn't the same delicious diavola pizza I order in the store. The pizza turned out to be basically a pepperoni pizza with basil. The pizza I ordered was supposed to have smaller sausage and peppers on it. I may go back to the actual restaurant but this is the end of me calling them for delivery.

This place was a great find! Upon walking in, I noted the warm rustic décor and an environment filled with the friendly chatter of regular customers. The menu had a large selection of Sicilian and southern Italian cuisine. It was delightful to scan through the eclectic selections while listening to Italian and Southern Italian dialects amongst the workers. I found the food to be true to southern cuisine; one cannot miss the fava beans, blood oranges salad, etc. As good as the food was, the wine selection proved to be an appropriate accompaniment to the dishes. And don’t worry if you find yourself unsure as to which wine to select, the waiters were a help. I highly recommend trying this restaurant if you’re looking for a laid-back and authentic dining experience.

After having a wonderful cheeseless seafood pizza at a Bklyn place that removed it from its menu, I've been searching for something comparable. Can't comment on the menu as a whole, but the Pescatore Pizza (ordered with regular, not spicy tomato sauce), was light, flavorful, and on a perfect thin crust. Maybe a bit pricey, not super filling, but excellent nonetheless.

I ate here last night, after finding out there was a 45 min wait at Franks. We were not dissapointed. It's cozy, with wood tables, it's casual but also romatntic. It had a tratoria like feel. Great for a dinner with friends, family, or for a date. The doors were open and it was perfect for a nice spring night. The grilled vegetables and salad apps were good, pizza was great, the flat breads were excellent. Next time I will try a pasta and more flat breads.

Every item on the menu is unique and so far, after 3 visits, delicious. The atmosphere is classic village. The owner is one of the waitstaff of two and is very friendly. While the food comes in a normal amount of time,the service is very slow. It can take a while to get your order taken, get bread, water, and check. I'm very cheap but I don't consider this place expensive. It's moderately priced and the food is excellent, which make sits worthwhile. I want to eat everything on the menu. GO there.

This restaurant has incredible food. It has a menu of 30 different types of pizzas made in a wood burning oven. The pasta dishes are incredible and very authentic (Sicilian). The atmosphere is really cozy and warm. I would encourage everyone to try this restaurant!!!
