ok.. so I have walked by this place for years , as its on my block, thinking it was a tourist place.. WRONG!! its a local gem and the food is great as well as the prices... the service is amazing! they dont take rezzies, but if you call they wil save u a table as the place is small!! If you're a tourist, stay away. us locals need a place all our own!! BRAVO to Pesce Pasta

My wife and I just stumbled upon this place after a show just a couple of months ago. We have returned twice since, most recently with another couple. Each time we were treated royally by a knowledgable and unpretentious staff. The menu at first seemed ordinary, but the specials blew us away. Everything was fresh, beuatifully presented and absolutely authentic, albeit with a dash of innovative flair. Ambiance?--don't know what you're looking for. Although the restaurant is small and crowded, it is one of the most warm and charming settings you'll find anywhere, including Italy. Service?--friendly, unobtrusive and prompt. The owner was there on each of our visits and personally tended to each of his guests. Price?--certainly not too pricey for New York. This will be our destination for Italian food whenever we are in the West Village.

...The best Italian spot in The West Village. I've been visited this spot since 2000 and the quality of food and service hasn't change a bit! They have the same waitresses mostly and the owner is always around to give you the best service you may find...This place makes you feel you're in Italy...It's simply excellent and highly recommended....The Risotto in chiostro is my favorite dish not to mention the seafood lasagna you must try it....

I've been coming to this restaurant in the West Village for years and the food is never bad. If you are looking for cheesy, saucy Italian food this is not the place for you . But, if you are looking for an up scaled good quality Italian food; specifically seeking seafood this is the place. But there chicken picata is great as there marsala. Never had a steak here but I am sure they aim to please. My favorite dish here is the open face brook trout. I do not know how they make it may be baked then broiled- it's fantastic. The artichokes are excellent! All the Antipasti are tasty. I've taken plenty of family here and they love this place!

My husband and I were spending our day in the West Village, looking for a intimate restaurant to try. We came upon this place, in hopes for some authentic Italian cuisine. Unfortunately, that is not what we had. We tried to order stuffed artichoke, and they claimed it was out of season (which it is not). We ended up ordering their Zuppa Di Pesce Veneziana, and it was an immense disappointment. It was overspiced with red hot peppers, and tasted like bad pizza. I would never recommend this place to anyone.

Located in between the shops on Bleeker is a this wonderful little restaurant that features fantastic food. Tried the seafood risotto and the special of lobster and linguine. Both dishes were excellent and moderate in price. Large assortment of seafood in both dishes. The lobster dish was spicy but not overpowering with a terrific marinara flavor. Would recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys italian food.

Had dinner here the other day with four friends. I had the asparagus soup and the 3-mushroom risotto--both among the specials of the day. The soup was not good at all--barely tasted of asparagus (or anything, for that matter); I have better asparagus soup in a lot of other restaurants. The mushroom risotto was good, but I would not return to this place based on the two dishes I had. Also, the bread was subpar--plain extra-white, extra-soft bread that looked (and tasted) like it had been sitting on a counter for a really long time.
