I'm impressed.. this place is good. Very Very Good. I love how you can opt for a half portion of pasta (appetizer) and the antipasti are great! I do not see the pasta dish on Menupages, but it is homemade pasta with eggplant and asparagus with fresh mozzarella on top. Another favorite is the pasta with duck sauce. It is certainly very savory!! Our waiter was very helpful and service is impeccable! Our waters were constantly getting filled, our bread baskets filled (love the cranberry walnut) and very attentive. I love coming here during cold months because of its warm and rustic atmosphere. Def. coming baclk!!!

A dear friend of mine had a birthday celebration here last night, it was fantastic! The food was deliriously delicious, the wine and champagne were wonderful - and what a selection! There are so many glorious items to choose from, our fare looked, smelled and tasted divine. We began the night with the Panzerotti Ripieni di Mozzarella e Cotto alle Erbe, Bruschetta Mista della Casa, and the Calamari all of which were scrumptious! I had a marvelous salad composed of Arugula, grapefruit, fennel, and avocado topped with a Champagne vinaigrette, which alone will keep me coming back! Most of us ordered the Ravioli al Guanciale Affumicato con Brasato di Coniglio e Scaglie di Grana Padano, each bite was more and more savory and delectable, one must try it because words simply can not describe how gratifying it really is. We finished the night with espresso and the most luscious desserts truly worthy of following the exquisite previous courses. I am so looking forward to returning to Tarallucci e Vino again and again, should you go I am certain you will as well!

I love this place. Great wine selection, delicious and creative italian food, excellent coffee... it's pretty spot on for me. There's just a really nice vibe about the place. Worth checking out.

This is a great lunch spot. It is quick enough to sneak away from your office and get a lunch that you'll love. The Tom/Mozz/Olive/Basil Panini is one of the best i have ever eatten I went back 3 days in arow for it. Its about $9 and comes with a yummy side salad w. balsamic. The sandwhich size islarge- at first sight you may feel you can only eat 1/2 but one you bite in...you will notice how quickly you cleared your plate.

Though I thought the layout of this wine bar/restaurant was cool, it was very loud. That aside, I was optimistic after seeing the lovely plate presentation on the tables nearby. But after my date and I opted not to order wine, I felt we were completely ignored by our server. Our appetizer did not arrive, and when I politely told the server, he did not apologize, but instead tried to pass off his obvious error on the food runners. We had nearly finished our entrees before he even came to check so I could tell him we didn't get our apps. He eventually brought the tiny appetizer, still without an apology, and did not take the item off our check. I have been a server before, and understand that sometimes you just screw up. I'm usually very forgiving, but he was just pretentious and rude. I probably won't go back purely because of the lackluster service.

I come to this wine bar and restaurant every Thursday after work for the vino and gnocchi, and I've tried at least a dozen of the items of their ever-expanding menu, all of them superb (except for the orange mousse- not crazy about it) The dishes are artfully prepared and, although portions are small, it's enough to keep me satisfied and save room for cheese afterwards. I've noticed however, that their business is picking up, so it's difficult to get a seat at the bar and I often end up having to wait a good 20 minutes. That said, it's well worth it and the staff is always friendly and accomodating. One tip- stay on the lower level if you can- the ambience is better and it makes for great people-watching. Also, the bartender is a sweetheart. This place is a real gem.

Shouting loud assorted PIB's (PERSONS IN BLACK)in a sparse cold atmosphere, miniscule portions,ridiculously expensive. This restaurant was everything I dislike in New York restaurants...I thought that trend was long gone... One fired lamd chop pounded thin served on a brown paper bag on a plate, not kidding nothing else...... $16.00. A selection of 5 cheeses, not one larger than a half dollar, $29 dollars. Ravioli, 5, for $16.00 Appetizer portion at best...Our food ( this was not dinner but more like stingy Italian tapas) for 4 with 2 bottles of wine with one dessert was over $300 and we all walked away very hungry....We are not looking for fat America supersize portions but his was just a disgrace. I can't even begin to discuss the taste of the food, although for the most part it was good and the ingredients were quality, however, there was no talent /chef in the kitchen, just a cook cranking out items with very simple preparation.
