Tarallucci e Vino
Posted by anonymous on 01/19/2010
A friend and I went for lunch Sunday, the place was barely half full. First, our cappuccinos (which I had been raving about) arrived cool and weak. A re-do brought a hotter second round, but still weak. Perhaps a new barista needs training? Then, we waited 35 minutes for one panini. I've had this panini before, smoked salmon. Usually the bread is warmed and the salmon & cucumbers are not -- in this version, it seemed as if they had nuked the entire thing, hot wilty cucumber slices (really, who cooks cucumber?) and the smoked salmon was cooked to death, as if it had been raw and not smoked. The server claimed the slowness was the kitchen's fault, but our panini miraculously appeared only after we nudged him. I've enjoyed this place consistently for several years but will now give it a rest as it seems they are resting on laurels these days.

Nice place, nice food, but all 6 of us left feeling hungry afterwards. The portions are very small which is misleading for the price.

Food was excellent and so was the coffee but service was unbelievably slow. We had paninis for brunch. Little cookies were delicious too.

I went here on a recommendation last night and was a little skeptical despite a glowing recommendation from a friend. I was blown away. The food was simply amazing - I couldn't help but make yummy noises! Good, quality ingredients, well prepared in a relaxed atmosphere. What more could you want? I've been telling all my friends about it!

Now, if you judge a restaurant by their coffee like I do, then this place gets a 10. This place rocks! The wine selection is great, and the food is fantastic. The coffee tastes the way coffee SHOULD taste. Rich, bold, flavorful... GREAT. Order an americano - you won't be disappointed.

Went with my friend the other day as this place looked really cute. Has a good wine selection and the food is very good, if not a bit over priced for what you get as some of the other reviews said. Got the goat cheese appetizer (yum!) but waited at least 20+ minutes for our entrees to come after we were finished with the appetizer. I thought the waiter had forgotten to to put our order in! Maybe they are trying to give you a nice European atmosphere, but I was really hungry! So if you want a quality meal in a cute restaurant, this is the place for you, but don't go if you are starving.

If I lived in the Union Square area, this would be my kitchen. I have been coming to T&V for years and I have never been disappointed. The service is friendly, the food is exquisite, simple but delightful cooking with quality ingredients. Lunch is particularly good value - try the Bresoala Panino, my long-time favourite - and the pastries are yummy if you suffer like from the occasional sweet-tooth, like me. However, the jewel in the crown of this eatery has been and still is - and judging by the competition on the Street - will be the espresso. Makes any other place's coffee taste like dishwater.
