Loved it! Food and serviceLoved it! Food and service was excellent. Such a cute place and bartendar was excellent in mixing his signature cocktails. Have reservations at another GV restaurant next week but am definitely going to Palma instead. Can't wait to go back!6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMSecond visit tops the firstThis was my second visit to Palma. I dined while on a business trip in March 2013 and had such a memorable experience that I brought a group of 6 colleagues during a trip to NYC in June 2013. It was pouring down rain which made the glass topped courtyard even more peaceful and unique. As the prior visit, the service was exceptional, the food exquisite and interesting and the entire event memorable. This will be a regular stop on each NYC visit.6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMLOVED this place! SearchedLOVED this place! Searched online for a nice spot for my birthday dinner while visiting New York and the reviews were great, so decided to give it a try. Some reviews said it was noisy, but we ate at 7 in the back courtyard and it wasn't too noisy at all. The food was delicious - I love gnocci and have tried it everywhere and this was by far the best gnocci I've ever had.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat neighborhood restaurantFood is excellent, staff is wonderful. Highly recommend.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMloved it!excellent dinner- beautiful covered outdoor courtyard.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMQuaint and cozy garden whenQuaint and cozy garden when dining early, food is fresh and scrumptious.
My only complaint is that 2 large parties arrived during our entree and we could no longer hear each other.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazingMy boy friend and i came into New York for a personal trip. This spot was recommended by a coworker. I could not have planned a better night, the food, the garden patio table for two and the atmosphere was all surreal.
A great night.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat placeOutdoor patio is beautiful. Food is great, Service is too. Perfect place for any ocassion. Nice village location. Look forward to returning in the future.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food , great serviceExcellent food , great service and simply wonderful place- recommend to anyone who loves good Italian food ... Restaurant decor reminds of being some small town in Italy- very romantic...6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat intimate birthday dinner!We had a five person birthday dinner for my husband in the outdoor garden. The flowers were GORGEOUS, they had a cute flower shop type display on one side of the garden. The pastas were marvelous (we tried three-clams, mushrooms, ravioli), the lamb chops were plentiful and the chicken Milanese was solid. Pasta portions are on the smaller side but I found it more than enough with the appetizers (meatballs, salad) and delicious homemade gelato and cheesecake. The two cons were the table was kind of difficult to sit at, many of us were straddling bracing and the 15 minute grace period, after which, you lose your table. That being said, they were accommodating when I showed up 20 min late so I have to give them kudos for that.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMA GemIt seemed it'd be a small, tight fit. Then the host walked us to the back to a gorgeous atrium filled with flowers, transporting us to an Italian villa. The food was fabulous and the atmosphere spectacular. A bit pricey, but I highly recommend it.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMa bit of Umbria on CorneliaWhen you walk into Palma, you'll feel like you've stepped into a trattoria in a tiny Umbrian town. Leave the hectic city and
be transported even if just for a dinner. Rustic, charming and delicious!5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial dinnerGreat neighborhood gem in Greenwich Village to take a special person for her birthday.

Food is exceptional- the gnocchi is a real standout. Service is excellent - extremely friendly. Highly recommend this spot!5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a wonderful find!I found this restaurant a few months back on Open Table. I've always loved the neighborhood and somehow never stumbled upon it. The food has always been wonderful with a very laid back atmosphere and we never felt rushed. You almost feel like you left NYC briefly and are in a small restaurant in Italy. All of the servers we have had have been lovely as well. This is definitely a place we'll continue to come back to and bring new friends!5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGratifiedDining at Palma is nothing short of gratifying....good food paired with a gods wine list.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful DinnerThe food was fantastic and the garden room was really delightful. Had a very authentic Italian feel. Would highly recommend this restaurant.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day DinHad a group of 5 in the back room for Mother's Day din. The table was a little close to the air conditioner. Asked the waiter to turn it off which made the table much more comfortable. Service was a little slow. The wrong bottle of wine was brought out at first. The food though was excellent.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMTasty Italian on CorneliaPalm is tucked away on a little street int he West Village. The space looks very unassuming. There is a nice garden room as well as an inddor intimate dining room. Tasty food. Try the fried artichokes - best I've had since my trip to Venice. Another must try is the zuppa di pesce.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMBeth's Birthday DinnerWe arrived with a party of 7 on a Sat nite. We were originally seated in the small main part of the restaurant, next to the bar. Very cramped seating, and of course very noisy. They were nice enough to make a large private room available to us, even though the room has a 10 person minimum. It was a fabulous room, and made the birthday dinner a success.
The food and the service were outstanding as well. It was a great experience!5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMA charming restaurant withA charming restaurant with terrrific food and service. Great ambience, pretty to look at. Only flaw is how noisy it gets in the front room near the bar once the place fills up.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMNew favorite place!We were introduced to Palma on a walking tour stop and have been back several times. The food is terrific, the service is most friendly and, most of all, we feel like we're in Italy or with family in Brooklyn many years ago!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMlovelyThis was my second visit to Palma and first for Brunch. There were four of us and all meals were good except mine. The eggs in tomato sauce were cold and it was a tiny portion with a few greens. The French toast and other dishes looked great though! The garden is lovely and staff are very good.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMCan't miss mealComing to town for the weekend we were looking for great food and unique authentic atmosphere. We could not have found better. The food was as good as any place I've been, the servicer was knowledgable, attentive and energetic and the environment and decor were perfect for enjoying the dining experience while comfortably catching up with friends.
It was an absolute can't miss dining experience!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were so happy to sit inWe were so happy to sit in "the garden" even though temps outside were cool that evening, but they have a retractable roof, and fresh cut flowers as flowers weren't growing yet. Such a pleasant atmosphere after such a crumby long winter!
We had lots of attention from the bartender and the waitress as we had a 6PM reservation and arrived early. By the time we left, it got crowded and noisy in the little garden.
Food was fresh, delicious and beautifully presented.
Will have this on my (growing) list of favorites!4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of my favorite NYC restaurantsGreat spot in the Village, so cute and quaint. They have an amazing central garden courtyard which is so beautiful you think your in Tuscany. I always come here when I'm in the city and managed to have lunch twice over my week stay. The food is very rustic Italian you like your Nanna is in the kitchen preparing it. The fried baby artichokes and the meatballs are amazing for starters. I love the Agnolotti so simple and tasty and don't leave without trying the pannacotta. We had the same server David both times and he was delightful. He knew his menu well and was extremely personable and could have not made us feel more welcome or comfortable.Try and sit in the courtyard its beautiful you may see Palma herself attending to the gardens.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWe love Palma.

This time I went with my boyfriend, even he was impressed with all of the fresh flowers hanging from the walls in the open garden area. I had the grouper - it was very fresh and tasty. He had the lamb chops - delicous. We shared the truffle fettucine. The wine list doesn't disappoint. We shared a bottle of Pino Nero recommended by the host.
My next trip to Palma, I'd like to take my mother for brunch. Anyone who is a gardener, as she is, would love this spot.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMI always enjoy eating at Palma.I always enjoy eating at Palma.

No martinis?4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMHidden GemI am so grateful to OpenTable. We were going out with friends and I decided we were NOT going to our usual default restaurants. It was going to be a beautiful evening and I wanted to be downtown. I searched our reservation time and Greenwich Village and one of the most highly recommended restaurants was Palma. And those reviewers were right. Charming and secluded, vibrant and warm, the ambience, food, wine and service were all wonderful. I have already recommended Palma to friends and I intend to return. We were fortunate to sit in the garden space and the air was lovely. Inside tables look great as well. Could not more highly recommend Palma.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMCocktails at the bar firstCocktails at the bar first were great. In the dining room, the service was impeccable, as was the food!

The place feels a little cramped though, and gets loud.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMPalma is our favorite restaurantPalma is our favorite restaurant in NYC, especially when the weather is nice and you can sit in the garden. The food is amazing. The hardest part is deciding what to have. It is great to order multiple things and share. We have been here several times and everything-both food and drink was outstanding. The specials of the day usually include a grilled or roasted fish which is both beautiful and delicious. The pasta is so fresh and served with a creative combination of things. The staff are warm, welcoming and attentive. The entire evening surpasses an outstanding meal and is an experience that makes you feel like you have spent an evening in a beautiful Sicilian garden. We cannot wait to go back.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious in every way. TheDelicious in every way. The eggplant appy and the steak were fantastic. Crispy artichoke was interesting, but wouldn't have that again. Two others had pastas at our table and they raved about them.
