We ordered two pasta dishes and they were anything but 'al dente' and lacked flavor...

Busy, buzzy atmosphere. All the food was delicious and well presented. We had mixed bruschetta, asparagus, sliced rib eye and lobster ravioli. I honestly can't find fault with anything we ate. Good bottle of house merlot too. Staff were attentive for the most part but never came to ask if we wanted dessert - could have made a few extra bucks out of us. 20% automatic tip was added to the bill which I hate but that was the only thing that spoiled what would have been a perfect experience.

We booked after reading all the reviews. I believe we mistakenly booked for lunch time. There were only two people working one waiter and one helper in the kitchen. The waiter was trying but still it took one hour to one hour and half to get our order and everything tasted average or below. Prices were fair. I would never go back for lunch... Dinner I will try by myself first...

After seeing Giovanni's SuperBowl coup on YouTube, my granddaughter and I had to check out VDP on our trip to NY. The food was superb, the wait staff was friendly and attentive, and the owner and his mother couldn't have been nicer. I can't wait for my next trip to NY and another visit to this quaint restaurant. Kudos to the entire staff!

After being trying to go to Abraço for the third time (great coffee place around the corner), I was walking around the block waiting for a friend to meet me downtown for a movie. I decided that I wanted to grab a bite to eat at Via Della Pace just based on the decor made it seem like a pretty traditional place. I was very impressed with the pasta and how perfectly it was cooked, but more importantly how cheap it was. I even had money left over to get an expresso, which was very good as well. I will defiantly return, perhaps for dinner, but the lunch atmosphere was relaxing as you can get in the city. -LS49

Since discovering Via Della Pace sometime early last year, it's quickly become a favorite of me and my boyfriend. The atmosphere is warm and inviting, although sometimes a little too noisy for 'intimate' conversation, and sometimes you're left feeling a little cramped for space. Nevertheless, the food is fresh and delicious, and a wonderful alternative to your steotypical Italian fare of macaroni and meatballs and such (which I love, but don't really seek out, since no restaurant's sauce can ever compare with my Mom's!). A nice wine selection too, at price ranges to fit every budget. The fact that it's 'cash-only' kind of threw me at first; let's just say I'm glad the bf didn't have to run up the block to the ATM when the check came the first time we ate there! All in all, a wonderful dining experience in my favorite neighborhood that will keep us coming back for more!
