can't wait to return for dinnerThey have an outstanding steak tartare (we ordered two) and sheep's milk ricotta with orange blossom charred toast. The complimentary house focaccia was also wonderful.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Service from theExcellent Service from the moment we entered. The server was excellent and guided us to an exceptional dinner - very well done.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat rustic Italian, high-octane!Service from door to end was fabulous and we were seated in a nice corner. It was loud but not horrendously so.
Steak Tartare was off the charts, and I had duck ragu lumache. Locanda salad was beautiful, an eggplant mezzaluna ravioli was gorgeous -- and the espresso. Decor part industrial, very cool use of backlight. This place has casual and fancy folk commingling nad doesn't feel awkward for that. In fact, makes it more interesting.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMMust try!They do wonderful things with simple foods. The presentation, service, atmosphere, and energy we exceptional. Really enjoyed our visit to Greenwich St.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a Fantastic MealTry the lamb--absolutely delicious! And they make the best Negroni I've had in a long time. Service was a little slow on our last visit, but we would still go back in a second.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMA very special place withA very special place with a delightful food. We loved the experience of having dinner in this restaurant.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious BrunhcWhat an outsanding dining experience. The pesto and lamb pastas were sensational only to be topped by the pistachio cake and lemon tart. There will certainly be a retrun trip. The service was just okay but the bartenders were great and though it was crowded we were not at all rushed.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing!Loved loved loved Locande Verde. We were visiting from London for a long weekend and this meal was a real highlight. Had breakfast, lovely intriguing menu. All delicious. Next time will book a month ahead and try and have dinner with you! Gorgeous understated interior. NYC at its best.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMfrom Portland with loveWe had an excellent dinner and experience. We are a group of folks who take our food and wine pretty seriously - so always looking for an impressive meal - And we have young families. In PDX it is possible to find great food in family friendly establishments - but we were not sure what to expect in NYC. Locanda Verde exceeded our expectations on both fronts - happily accommodating our group when we grew from 8 to 9, and nobody flinched when the addition was a 3 year old :) The interior is charming and comfortable, the staff knowledgeable and friendly. Highlights from our meal included the fava bean crostini, the locanda salad, the special squid ink pasta, the roasted rabbit and a divine pistachio cake with rhubarb sorbet.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMAnytime of DayBreakfast, Lunch, Dinner or drop in for just a drink.

Always packed for lunch - both business and social. You really can't go wrong with any dish here, from appetizers to delicious desserts, all attractively prepared. Service is professional. Minor complaints: some tables are a little too closely spaced, and some of the pasta entree portions are really tiny - a recent pappardelle portion was about three tablespoons-full.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMwell managed restaurant withwell managed restaurant with excellent service. staff on alert to diner requirements. make sure to leave room for dessert.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMLove everything abt it.

Hard to snag a spot but worth it
Pastas rock3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, uncomfortable settingLocanda Verde's reputation for fabulous food is well-deserved. The ricotta cheese with sea salt and herbs is amazing, richer and more satisfying than any dessert. Grandmother's ravioli is extremely satisfying. On the down side, themenu at lunch is rather limited, with only 6 or so options in each category. Service was extremely professional and friendly. The restaurant is very pretty. It is also somewhat cramped and very noisy, although our table in the front by the window was better than the back room. The chairs are extremely uncomfortable, little better than metal folding chairs. What should have been a fabulous experience, based on the food, was less than fabulous, based on the lack of comfort.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our first visit andThis was our first visit and celebrating a birthday - Locanda Verde did not disappoint. The food was exceptional; if you are a foodie this place is for you. The wait staff was very attentive and our waitress was very knowledgeable about every ingredient, in every dish and what to pair with the different courses we ordered. She was a lot of fun and really added to the dining experience.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent service but wouldExcellent service but would have liked to linger a bit more between courses.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMLocanda Verde lives up toLocanda Verde lives up to it's reputation. The food is outstanding. A relatively small menu consists of a selection of Northern Italian specialties, each prepared flawlessly. I have dined here a couple of times now and the food, service and atmosphere are consistent. The wine list is all Italian and each wine is interesting; the server was very helpful in making selections. The welcome at the door is warm, and the service is caring and attentive. I would recommend a visit!3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMI've been here before andI've been here before and I will definitely go again and again and again! The food is beyond great and the service is always on point. Even when half our party was running late due to traffic from the NYC half marathon we did not lose out table once we explained the situation. The kitchen does like to take a table's entire order all at once so we did have to wait for the majority of the group to arrive and ask some of our latecomers to text us their menu choices but in this day and age with menus available on our smart devices that was not problem. I came for my birthday brunch and over all it was a great experience!3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMSecond visit even better than firstMy experience was delicious and memorable the first time we visited and even more so, the second time around. All the tempting, tasty dishes we passed up the first time (I mean we could only choose one a piece, right?) we got to try on our 2nd visit. So we glad we returned for an encore visit. We're now absolute devotees of Locanda Verde!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMBreakfast menu is excellent.Breakfast menu is excellent. Not your run of the mill choices; lemon ricotta pancakes were the most traditional items on the menu. Most of the egg dishes were deliciously rich and filling. The menu was diverse, breakfast and lunch options available in the morning.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous ricottaWe went on the recommendation of a friend who raved about the sheep's milk ricotta. Having tried it for both breakfast with the truffled honey and lunch, with olive oil and fresh herbs, we'd have to agree - it's outstanding! We're able to buy fresh sheep's milk ricotta in Toronto but were informed that Locanda Verde ships theirs from Sicily. Truly worth the visit. We will be making it a regular part of our visits' to Nyc.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat early morning foodBest weekend brunch ever! Good weekday breakfast too. Best item is Sheep's Milk Ricotta with truffle honey. My 16 yr old son loved it! Good coffee, solid service, nice hard-wood tables and pleasant ambiance. Waiter a little bit hipster, but not offensively so considering the neighborhood. I will go back again and again.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMSimply fabulous! We wentSimply fabulous! We went to celebrate my husband's 50th, after being recommended by friend. It lived up the expectations for ambience. And the food exceeded our expectations. Would highly recommend.3/11/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved our dinner here. TheLoved our dinner here. The room is great -- warm and relaxing. Service is top-notch.
