    not good

    Unfortunately morandi was not good when we went. granted, we went for lunch...a late lunch at 2:30...but i couldn't believe how limited the menu was...we weren't allowed to choose from the lunch menu but instead the very limited sandwich station menu (four sandwiches...wooo, don't knock yourselves out) a few cold dishes, a few panini and a few pizzas...probably less than 15 selections total. yet we were given a wine menu that was about twenty pages long, our food menu was three paragraphs on one side of tiny paper. our table was uneven and kept wobbling. they couldn't seem to fix it and wouldn't allow us to move to a 4 top because there was only 2 of us...the restaurant was only 1/8 full! the panini was sage and mushroom. their idea of sage was one sage leaf on top of each half. the sandwich was ok...but burnt on one side and so greasy i couldn't believe it...greasy with butter, so while it tasted yummy, you knew it was too much and killing you. the bread had actually turned translucent there was so much butter and grease. we had beers too...they were $7.50 a piece!! not worth it...sorry, it just wasn't. maybe dinner is better and i'm sure it's better when someone else is paying, but seriously needs some work for a better all-day menu. go to pastis, stay away from morandi...sad to say--because normally mcnallly nails it in his restaurants...not on this one!

    please.....

    My boyfriend and I, both chefs, ate there last night. I have been dying to try it, because I heard all the hype and think its a cute place on the corner of waverly. The food was such a disappointment. The dessert was supposed to be a bitter sweet chocolate pudding, it tasted exactly, we decided, like a tootsie roll....if thats what they were going for, it was right on. The octopus was so oily, it was almost inedible. The only good thing about it was the shaved celery on the plate. The portions are very small and overpriced too.....I believe it was about 3 ounces of octopus for $14. I have had much better and bigger elsewhere. Only good thing about the place, the service. it was right on. Very friendly... The only reason people eat here is because they think its the place to be....real foodies.

    amazing!

    random walk by, the outdoors looked so cute that we walked in and were seated in a tiny table that bordered the patio. I thought this would bug me but it didn't, our waiter was so friendly and the food was delicious! The foccacia was the best i've ever had. i'm going back tonight!

    if you know Italy, you'll love Morandi

    first off, the chef at Morandi was the chef at Giorgione (back when it was good) and then at Gusto in the west village also. so her menu is almost identical to what it was at Giorgione as just as delicious. prepared just the way they do in Italy, complete with the pasta called picci which i have never seen on another NYC menu. carciofi alla guidea always amazing. pasta yummy. salads fresh with the most amazing fava beans ever. service was a kick, loved our waitress from Spain. she rocked. try it. it's nothing like the other McNally-ies.

    Morandi is a hit!

    I had dinner at Morandi on Saturday night, 5/5. A group of us stumbled on it by accident and thought we'd try for a reservation. We walked in and they were very inviting. We made reservations for two and changed them to four when we came back for dinner. The food was very good and the service was attentive. The standout for me was the lamb chops and fried artichokes. It was as enjoyable as my experiences at Pastis and Balthazar. I would recommend it for anyone interested in good food and a hot scene.

    Good lunch option

    I have only had lunch - panini and soup - very tasty and reasonably priced and an absolutely delicious wine from their huge by-the-glass selection; however one time the sandwich came cold and the next it was hot and on different, less nice bread - still good though. I'd say the service is mixed, and I'm sorry they've hired the miserable woman that used to work at Tanti Baci whose face could sour a cappuccino. Afternoon coffee and pastries looks like a good option if you don't mind paying $6 for a large espresso.

    Very disappointing

    I was very, very disappointed. While Schiller's and Pastis do well enough with satisfying fake-french to make me brave the horrible scene, a scene is all Morandi has going for it. The food was disastrously poor on the whole. The salt-cod entree is probably the most disappointing piece of food I have ever eaten in New York. The service was annoyingly present, the ceilings low enough to make everything loud yet muddy sounding, and the heat fluctuates throughout the place such that it could be freezing at the bar and melting at your table.
