    Missed the Jack Sparrow Impersonator

    Where should I begin? The faux decor is reminiscent of a Disney ride; the service was decidedly below average; the cramped seating was like being on a transcontinental flight; and the food was very mediocre in a mass-market type of way. Is there anything good to report? Hmmmm. Well, the minetrone soup and salad were the best part of our stay; the pasta was probably better than what is being served at the Olive Garden up in Times Square; we missed the Jack Sparrow impersonator. Within six months the tour buses will clog Waverly and Morandi's coffers will run full with travelers checks, but not the cold hard credit card receipts of real New Yorks.

    Why all the griping???

    I really don't understand the bad reviews. I've been to Morandi at least a dozen times, and have always been happy-- sometimes even thrilled-- with my brunch or dinner. Make a reservation (off-hours are always best), arrive on time, and enjoy your meal. Morandi is not a theme park, cookie cutter restaurant. Drop the attitude, go, enjoy!

    fantastic brunch

    i'm actually quite surprised at the bad reviews here because the brunch experience i had at morandi was wonderful. mind you, i sat outside, so i have no idea what the inside of the place looks like, but the service was great outside as was the location. but even more, the brunch menu was great, and their special eggs with artichokes and fava beans (don't be scared, it's delicious) was incredible. perfect sized portions and delicious homemade bread on the table. everything is a la carte and not very cheap, so no all-you-can drink mimosa with the meal, but if you come here for the brunch food you won't be disappointed. service is accommodating and friendly. i avoided this place like the plague for a long time because i thought it was another touristy diner-esque joint, but i was pleasantly surprised. i'll go back for brunch.

    Rich Mans Chain-Theme Restaurant

    Since I logged onto this site before going to MORANDI, I felt I had to give my two cents. Who could possibly recommend this place, this is NYC where authenticity counts and Disneyland is frowned upon. The decor is offensive and food below average. If you miss the suburb theme restaurants stop by this place, you will love it. Otherwise, walk into the west village for real Italian.

    I can't believe I'm doing this

    I don't really understand this little online pedestrian food reviews. I've been to this restaurant, and like any restaurant in New York, they strive for consistency and excellence, and perhaps there is a faux pas every once in a while. The snobbery in these reviews! People touting themselves to be the new Frank Bruni, which is a whole other conversation regarding that little princess and his power trip. If you walk into Morandi, or any other restaurant, expecting to have a bad time, or very willing to pick out faults, than you are going to have a very bad time. Like going to the theater, if you see the cables show, forget it and enjoy the rest of performance. If you don't like the food, or service, then shut up and don't go. You're not impressing anyone with your snobbery. However, if you are going to try Morandi, and you are not into "the scene" sit in the cafe on a Monday or Tuesday. Great service, excellent food.

    Great find!

    Been dying to try this place since it opened and finally made it out this past weekend. Cannot say enough about the food and service. Every dish was absolutely stellar, from the ricotta bruschetta with sundried tomato paste and pesto to the homemade pasta and simply done whole fish that is filleted table-side. Plus, the service was impeccable - knowledgable staff and extremely attentive. While we had one server take our order, there were at least 4-5 who were constantly stopping by to refresh our water glasses, pour our wine, bring bread, and anything else you might ask for. Don't forget to top off the meal with their desserts - the tiramisu was unreal - perfect amount of espresso and liquor. I will definitely be returning!

    Way too full of themselves

    I just went over to Morandi tonight to run in and get a gift certificate. So here I am, monday night, credit card in hand, ready to do a quick transaction, and i'm greeted by three hostesses, who were all just standing at the hostess station. They proceed to tell me that they are "too busy" to get me a gift certificate at that time and said that I should come back tomorrow at 9am and someone can take care of me then. They must be kidding me, who do they think they are? They were not even friendly about it. On my way out they also had the nerve to offer their business card so i could call at another time. Um, no thanks - there are plenty of other restaurants in the village that would be happy to get my business the moment i walk in the door.
