    Cheapo cheapo

    I've loved and patronized this place for ages, but after tonight, maybe not so much. The baked clams were great as usual. NOT great: the half a teaspoon of ragu sauce on my penne. Hey, if I'm paying 16 bucks plus tax and tip for a plate of pasta, I damn well want more sauce on it than I got last night. I could hardly see or taste it...and the pasta seemed dry and yet also soaked in vanished sauce, as if it had been tossed with some sauce and then sat around drying out. If it hadn't been a delivery order I'd have sent it back to the kitchen. So nothing from here anymore but the baked clams and the pizza...

    Great pizza in a great atmosphere!

    First of all, this place is so pretty inside with exposed brick, huge wood burning oven, tin ceiling, and cool light fixtures. We came to try the pizza and it was one of the best pizzas we've had in manhattan (had the sopressata pizza). The 10" pizza plus a side item was plenty for two people to share and it comes to approx $16! The service was great. It looked like they had some good drink specials ($4 wine) that I would try next time I go. Good deal for good pizza!!

    I'm from Brooklyn, I know good food!

    Born in the L.E.S. n raised in Gravesend (Brooklyn). I know good Italian food (especially Pizza & Pasta) and the Three Of Cups has both. Thin crust pizza fresh from the wood burning oven with all types of choices as toppings. VG pasta and new specials, dishes when i come back to the place after i been away for awhile. Prices & portions have always been very fair (especially considering how the East Village has changed). I have recommended the place to friends and even family and everybody has been happy. I don't have to leave Brooklyn to get a good Italian meal, but i do go to the East Village for the Three of Cups. Now if they could only do something about the parking!

    not the worst but close...

    Went for mother's day with family...blah. The place was empty so we didn't notice any poor service like the other reviewers. They sat us by an open door with a draft. Had to move tables. The food was equivalent to a subpar diner. The menu has an ambitious selection that the kitchen can't live up to. Pizza was adequate but not for the price. Bread was supposed to be hot but it was served to us cold and stale. The potatoes that came as side dishes were stale like they were cooked a few days ago. I think they were someone else's leftovers.

    Rotten lettuce, burnt potatoes with no seasoning. I have never sent a dish back in my life until I ate here.

    Takes Forever for Delivery

    My roommate ordered from Three of Cups a few months ago and had a bad experience - it took almost 2 hours to get his food delivered. Tonight I was craving Italian and figured maybe he'd just had a one-time bad experience, so we decided to give them another shot. What a huge mistake... I ordered food at 7:15pm and it still hadn't arrived at 8:45. I called and was told it was "on the way". At 9:15pm still no food, so I called back and was told they must have "lost my ticket" and that they'd "make it again, right now". It's now 9:45 and still no sign of food. For what it's worth, they offered to cut the price in half. If they'd done this only once it would be fine, but twice does not bode well.

    Three of Cups, Ace of Spades

    I've eaten here several times, but mostly I order delivery. The atmosphere of the restaurant is sort of East Village medieval, with the chandeliers and pew-like booths in front. Delivery is quick, though the thin, delicious pizza gets cold very quickly. Baked stuffed clams are fabulous, pasta is okay.
