    I found this restaurant several years ago for a friends birthday. I just returned the other day with some friends who were in from Boston and I almost forgot how good it was. The staff was super attentive, the food was great (especially when your pasta is cooked perfectly!!), and we sat outside which was perfect. I highly recommend this place. Not to mention they take reservations which is key in my opinion.

    It is a wine bar, so come here if you plan on drinking. The wait staff was constantly asking us what we wanted to drink... it was super annoying. Food was just alright. Bruschetta & gnocchi were good; chicken skewers were fine but not memorable. Shrimp skewers were dry, I don't recommend them, especially for the price. An alright place, I likely won't come back.

    We live in the neighborhood and walked past this place countless times without giving it a try. Now, Cellar 58 has become a regular spot for us. It's a friendly neighborhood restaurant with great, fresh food and a relaxed environment. There is an authentic Italian feel to the place. The people have always been very nice and have given us just the right amount of attention. We have never been rushed. The food has been consistently fresh, and the dishes are simple and tasty. The fresh pastas are great, and the Tagliata con Arugola e Parmigiano has become a favorite of mine. (The back room, the Wine Cellar, is good for a large group if you don't mind the hightop tables.)

    In a quiet little street corner, not flashy and slightly underground. The food is good, not amazing but good. Traditional italian, nothing super fancy or exotic but its a good small italian restaurant if you're looking for pasta. They do however have an amazing wine selection because if you walk to the back of the restaurant, there is a cellar dedicated to red wines.

And you'll find the tastes throughout the menu. Traditional Italian dishes prepared with fresh, homemade ingredients in the manner of the old country. I will be back!

    We had a group of 7 and were accommodated no problem, so well in fact that we had the whole place to ourselves! It was a lovely ambience, the service was great, and to be honest I didn't mind that it wasn't busy, it gave our party time to chat without yelling over other customers, sorry USA patrons but you are pretty Loud at times :) The food was delicious but just not enough of it, probably the smallest portions I've encountered in NYC , we ate bruschetta, lasagna, carbonara and steak. If you're a wine lover they have over 120 different wines so you'll no problem with selection :) Ps, I have wandered past a few times since and it has been busy.

    Found this place on a whim, by using my open table app while shopping with my girlfriend last week. After a long day of sightseeing we decided to end the night with a small meal and bottle of wine. Our waiter Antonio, fresh in from Italy was superb. He made us feel right at home and did not rush or try to push us into anything we didn't want. While my GF used the restroom I gave Antonio a special dessert that I had bought and asked him to bring it out when it was time for dessert. He provided excellent service and the food was great. Highly recommend the antipasto for 2 and the pasta al sugo di salsicia Order the bottle of Valopolicella and you'll be sure to have a great wine to pair with the above. Enjoy

    While my friends and I definitely enjoyed the wine, the food was just okay. We had a few different dishes and the only one that I can say was very good was the sausage bruschetta. On the plus side, the owner and our waitress were very friendly and let us a try a couple of wines before deciding on a bottle.

    What a great spot - the front of the restaurant is very cute and romantic and in the back they have a great room that can be used for a group event, easily up to 30ppl if not more. Service was great - we were initially seated in the main room but got "upgraded" to the back room because we were a group of 10. The manager was very attentive, wine was delicious and the food was outstanding. They actually do a REAL meat & cheese platter, the eggplant parmesan was clearly made from scratch, the bruschetta were to die for... I would go back anytime!

    I went with my girlfriend on a Friday night and we had a delicious meal and a great bottle of wine sitting at the bar. The bartender was a nice young girl who wasn't too well informed on the wine list but was nice and friendly enough. We thought about sitting outside but it was a little warm and the noise from the traffic on 2nd ave is a little too much. Tasty menu and nice little room.

    The restaurant was a surprise. The service was excellent, the food was delicious, and the ambiance was perfect for a nice meal with your significant other. We ordered the cheese and meat platter, slecting 9 items from their savory menu of different cheese and cure meats, followed by homemade pasta in a light creamy sause with steamed vegetables. Both dishes were outstanding; The pasta was perfectly al dente, the sauce silky with perfectly balanced flavors, and the vegetables were nicely cooked and blended well in the dish. The service was also well timed and prompt. Definitely coming back for more.

    My wife and I booked dinner at this restaurant because it was listed as a neighborhood gem on opentable.com. When we arrived, we noticed it was an intimate local just off 2nd. The wine list was good, and the cheese selection was superb. Then - just as we were settling into some good conversation - the overhead music went off and someone with a microphone started speaking. Much to our chagrin, there was a meeting of Secular Humanists meeting in the front part of the room around the bar area. I'm fine with people who have other views than me, but not when they are being shared over a speaker system throughout the restaurant I am trying to have dinner at with my wife. We were offended many times over while trying to hurriedly finish.

    Admittedly, my boyfriend and I were looking for a place within short walking distance to Bowery Ballroom and noticed this had good ratings, was near and had a 1,000 point reservation so we booked it. The food was fresh and perfectly cooked, the dishes and wine list were affordable, our waiter was knowledgable, thoughtful and great with suggestions. For the two of us who have lived here for over 20 years we thought it was a cute, delicious find in an area that can be a little loud and overpriced.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012

    The menu was very limited, especially for healthy eaters. The only vegetable offered was sauteed spinach which was drenched in oil. When asked if the spinach (the only option) could be steamed, the answer was no. Also, the meal options are basically a pasta dish or a sandwich -- there really isn't much in between. On the other hand, everyone in our party enjoyed their food (except for the Caesar dressing -- it takes just like mayo).

    We came here for my birthday and they were able to accommodate 10 of us easily. We shared several small plates and dessert, as well as several bottles of wine. They did not rush us at all, and it was a really fantastic, low key way to celebrate on a weekday. The whole place is low lit, and has a great space for a larger party (maybe 20 people) in the back wine cellar room which looked like it could be a lot of fun. Just as a heads up, they did let me know that typically groups 10 and over must order from a pre-fixe menu. But I wouldn't let that turn you off... we really enjoyed ourselves!
