A word from Gnocco
Gnocco is a restaurant garden cafe serving Italian antipasti, pastas, seafood, meats, and pizzas. New York Magazine wrote that "the folks at Gnocco in the East Village have a simple plan: Offer better food for less by importing young (and cheap) chefs straight from Italy." The Zagat guide wrote that Gnocco offers "'East Village Italian Funk'...it keeps things 'simple' with affordable 'fresh pasta' and the 'amazing' fried dough its named for."Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Our first night in NYC, we wanted Italian fare and found this place on Open Table - proving that great Open Table reviews mean a great restaurant. We loved the gnocchi, the pizza, the lamb and …. the wine. Service was awesome. We talked about eating here everyday of our NYC vacation. Ha Ha! Truly great food - not fancy but the food is so good you can't go wrong even for a special occasions."

  • "My husband and I and our two kids 10 and 13 had a nice meal at Gnocco. Salads were a good size and I enjoyed an interesting endive, grape and blue cheese option that was different but delicious! Our waitress was very nice and attentive and recommended a lovely burrata appetizer. The pizzas were very thin crust with good toppings. Gelato for dessert was house-made and tasted great but on the pricey side ($8 or $9). There was a large group celebrating a birthday while we were there so the atmosphere was very lively and loud but it was part of the fun. We went out of our way to get here on a recommendation and it was worth a trip on the Metro to Alphabet City."

  • "Went their for date night with my lady who lives thin crust pizza. Yes it's thin. Yes it's delicious and sublime. If you like those qualities you better go here. There's a sign on the door that proclaims that the Italian Embassy has blessed this place as a destination for Italians. (Not Italian Americans.)"

  • "I've visited Gnocco a couple of time for special occasions as both my wife and I really like this place. The food is really tasty and would recommend this place to anyone who's looking for good Italian food."

  • "I tried Gnocco when they 1st opened @ 10 years ago and wasn't impressed enough to make it a regular. (I live nearby.) But I went this time because a friend insisted and I was really impressed. It was closest to the kind of food u get in Italy that I've experienced in the US. Everything at our table (I sampled everything) was really excellent. I had butternut squash ravioli that was clearly just made. My friends had a bronzing and a salmon. Even the side of broccoli was tasty and perfectly cooked. Our waiter and the other guys were really attentive unlike I experience at other places in NYC. I'll definitely be back."

  • "Gnocco has a calm and romantic vibe. When walking in, the greeting is warm from the staff as well as the traditional oven. The staff provides attentive and friendly service, which complements the delicious and affordable menu!"

  • "Felt like a sardine at first jammed into a corner, but then it started to feel comfortable. Food was okay, but they love to put shaved parmesan cheese on everything. The salad was loaded with it and the pork was covered with it. Not really tasty as it was only pork, cheese and balsamic vinegar. No starch or greens. The group was okay with dinner but nothing impressed us to go back again. And I had to talk to group into going as the restaurant only had a 'B' food grade. You live and learn."

  • "This restaurant was great! From the amazing food to the service and great hostess! I was here with a party of 8 on my 21st birthday and it was just a perfect night out. the host was so friendly and so accommodating! Also, the food was heaven! Real italian food! Go for it! We had a bit of everything, from fish to lamb and pizza. They are italian perfection!"

  • "Starting from the signature appetizer appropriately called Gnocco, the food here never disappoints, especially the pastas. Waiters are friendly and helpful. The garden room is my favorite space although tables there are smallish. Perfect for a casual, fun, delicious dinner."

  • "I had read some very average reviews, but raves for the pizza. 6 of us went for Monday Night Pizza Club, and we couldn't have been happier, this is now on the top of the Manhattan list. The pizza was great, and the service was perfect. One the way out when I didn't think I could eat another bite, we were offered a taste of the gnocchi special which was outstanding. Can't wait to go back and try the rest of the menu."

  • "Food was good but they only had one waiter for 18 tables in the front of the place. Dinner was very slow to come out, 2.5 hours in total for 2 people is unacceptable, especially in NYC. We waited 20-30 mins for bread and had to flag down the waiter for our order since he never came over after we were given menus. I will not be going back."

  • "My bf and I had a very romantic V-Day dinner here. We arrived early, and we're seated separately from the din of the main restaurant. The waiter was attentive and the food was incredible. Our table was a bit close to the next table, causing other servers to frequently have to push past my chair, but the experience was pleasant nonetheless."

  • "Fine Dining without the heart attack quality of the bill. Love the aura of the dinning experience and the service was very competent but not stuffy. Loved it, will definitely go back."

  • "I was hosting twelve 17 year old girls for a birthday dinner. They gave us two nice tables right next to each other. The staff was very attentive and helpful for these picky eaters. The special lasagna was delicious, perfect textured noodles and great balance of meat and cheese. Salads were very good and the selection of brick oven pizzas couldn't be better. I told my wife I can't wait to come back."
