Simon Kim & Chris Cippolone have
created a fabulous restaurant that I plan on going back to many times. The decor, the service, the cocktails, the vibe, the wine list and knowledge are excellent: food; WOW! beautifully plated food wo being fussy, just the right blend of flavors; the menu is so well balanced that anyone can find a dish. THe monkey bread is a must (delicious warm tear apart dinner rolls), I am a huge crudo fan and this one is top rated. Everyone is doing some octopus dish but Chris takes it one step ahead by BBQing it…this is a MUST! Then Rohan duck: how do they get two perfect rectangles of meaty, juicy, silken flavorful duck breasts like these? Agnolloti also impressive as were the desserts. I am so going back!"

The food here is very good and I
especially appreciate the really excellent preparation of vegetable appetizer and side dishes. The carrots and the market vegetables were both delicious. My entree was the Bucatini and it was also excellent.The space is small and limiting so go with a small group. When we tried to add a couple to our reservation (going from 3 to 5 people) they could not/would not accommodate us."

Not bad....actually a very good
spot. Small dining room which works to set a very nice atmosphere. The food was really interesting and well prepared. The carrot appetizer was incredible. Normally, cooked carrots are not on my list of things to try. In this case....well worth it! The oysters were from the West Coast and delicious! Shared the beef dish for 2. It was cooked perfectly and seasoned very well. We were stuffed...so there was no room left for dessert. The drinks were well made, the Leaves Falling was a particular gem. Note that it is a little pricey, so this is not an every week kind of place to visit. However I will be returning in the future!"

They have just started serving
lunch so we had the place to ourselves. The food was excellent along with the service. I understand why people have said that it is expensive because of the wine list. The cocktails are delicious but small."

Lunch at Piora was a lovely
experience - 3 course meal $28. Started off with the asparagus veloute with dungeness crabs and trout roe; texture, temperature, and flavors all worked well. For entree I had the bucatini of black garlic with dungeness crab, chilis, and maitake mushrooms (supp of $12). The pasta was al dente, generous amount of crabs, and the asian flavors melded well. A successful dish that I feared was bordering salty but ha, finished every bit of. Although I found some small shells, which I addressed, I still highly recommend the dish. Dessert of panna cotta with roasted peaches, crumbled graham crackers, and seaweed was a strong finish. The service is warm and genuine, right amount of conversation and attention."

Piora exceeded my expectations.
Everything that hit the table was cooked perfectly and the seasoning was balanced and delicious! I absolutely loved the duck sausage with red wine rigatoni, the pasta heightened the flavor of the dish and cooked to a perfect al dente! The duck with farro was delicious! Our desserts left us blown away. I want to come back very soon and reccomend to many!"

Food is amazing, service is
fantastic, and everyone there is so friendly."
Dined on 2/27/2014
The food here was great and the
service friendly, but the small dining room was overpowered by one incredibly loud table that sort of ruined my meal. There were 8-9 tables dining, and from what I could see at least 5 spent their meals looking at the loud table with expressions of despair/hatred (two were out of my view). I'm not sure how a restaurant should approach this situation, but Piora did nothing -- they were joking with the table, as if nothing were amiss. Maybe they were afraid of offending, I don't know. But it was a really irritating way to spend a meal. We live 2 blocks away and eat most of our meals in the neighborhood, so we are used to high noise levels, but this was different. All was quiet after that table left."

Overall great experience. The a
service was wonderful as was the food. Definitely recommend it."

Welcome addition to the
neighborhood. Excellent food and service and a creative bartender. Loved it!"

Outstanding service and
atmosphere. I had Monkey Bread, Carrots, Rohan Duck, chocolate for desert and they were all phenomenal!"

Another great meal. Started with
amazing craft drinks at the bar. Dinner included their wonderful carrots and veggies of the day, and this time we had their off menu cote d bouf which was fantastic. Great food, wonderful service added up to an fantastic evening!"

Interesting, but not weird. Every
dish delicious and surprising. Service warm and welcoming. Unpretentious but special."

Food was very good and inventive,
service could use some improvement. Took a while for us to get seated and also for someone to take our order."
Dined on 1/28/2014
We went at 6:30 on a Monday night
and had to wait 25 minutes for cocktails from the bar, even though there was only one other table seated in the entire dining room. At the same time we ordered their"monkey bread" as something to nibble while we sipping on our cocktails and looking at the menu. We watched as other tables were seated, drinks were poured and monkey bread starting come out for the other tables that had ordered after us....By the time the bread showed up, we'd already ordered our meal, finished our cocktails and were literally being poured the wine to go with our appetizers. The runners were lost with food in the hall. Pasta was too salty to eat and I love salt! wanted to love it as we live a block away. what a waste of money."
Dined on 1/27/2014
Food was very good. Wait was
unacceptable as we had a reservation, but the staff was apologetic and gave us complimentary wine. Service in the dining area was attentive and friendly. The place was nice."

A bit pricey for neighborhood and
quality of food. Uncomfortable banquettes. Need pillows for back support Very pleasant and knowledgable waiter"

I have to say that my boyfriend
and I dine out quite frequently, nearly 5 nights a week. We do tend to have our top favorites, veering off our natural course ever so often. We decided to give Piora a try -- it could not have been a better decision. We had the following dishes: Cocktails -- Falling Leaves was the favorite, while all were incredibly prepared. Monkey bread -- served hot with lardo spread, a must Carrots -- cooked 3 ways, divine. Crudo -- light, citrus, full of flavor Tortellini -- best I have ever had, would love to try more pasta Cote de Boeuf -- BEST STEAK OF ALL TIME, served with magical potatoes which remind me of classic tater tots. This is a special, so pray they are serving this when you dine. 100% a new favorite."
Dined on 1/20/2014
Glad that we booked this on a whim
and not for a special occasion. The octopus was way too charred and the taste of ash overwhelmed everything else on the dish. They also had a lobster/truffle pasta special; it seems hard to mess that combination but we found it very dry. Finally, the "monkey bread" was more like six tiny potato rolls and there is just no justification for charging customers for them."
Dined on 1/4/2014
Gorgeous meal. Everything was
delicious and the service was impeccable. The monkey bread and bucatini lived up to the hype!"

Had a really great late dinner on
a Tuesday Will be going back!"

The food was creative and
delicious and the service was great. I had a squash pasta for my entree and I could have kept eating it forever, it was just that good. It's a bit expensive, but worth every penny for a special night out."
Dined on 12/30/2013
Overall a very enjoyable evening
to celebrate my wife's birthday (party of 4). Service was terrific, except I would recommend that they smooth out the front desk reception when the maitre d isn't there. The food was really well thought out, complex but not weird. Compliments to the kitchen. My cocktail, Fallen Leaves, was super, but my wife's, Salty Dog, was rather bitter and simple. The dining area is really small and the noise level crept up over the evening. But they do a great job with the space they have. I would go back."

Everything from the cocktails to
the monkey bread (AMAZINGGGGG) to the truffle pasta special (worth spending the money!) to the chicken and fish dishes my boyfriend and I had...truly an amazing evening and experience. Go for a special occasion. They didn't rush us at all which was wonderful and great service all around. Quiet ambiance without feeling too "white table cloth." Foodie paradise."

Grilled Octopus - 2.5/5,
deliciously smoky but without the sauces thought, this dish is very salty. Rohan Duck - 4/5, The duck skin was crispy contrasting perfectly with the meat part - medium rare, juicy and tender. Bucatini - 1/5. The dish was very very salty and oily, the crab was broken down to tiny pieces, I could not taste the crab at all. I found shells of the crab stuck between my teeth. I mentioned the issues to the manager, he admitted that they have issue with consistency with this dish and that he will let the chef know, so he can do better next time. But I will not return next time. There are many restaurants to choose from in NY, I do not have the confidence in this restaurant to keep all my guests satisfied."
Dined on 12/27/2013
Absolutey love the place. Piora's
steak is unbelivably yummy and all of their menu items are worth trying. The service was great too. Everyone seemed to know well about the menu and they are so nice and lovely! I would love to dine at the restaurant again if I could find a reservation time slot! (so popular!)"
Dined on 12/21/2013
We had a 5:30pm reservation. We
arrived at 5:20pm but were not allowed in (through the front door) till 5:38pm in the middle of winter in NYC. Then we were told after an hour and a half, the host needed the table for 7:30pm. I could go on, but it was just unpleasant and odd for a New York dining experience."
Dined on 12/19/2013
Great food - very tasty. Very
popular spot at the moment but a bit overpriced for the portion size (a small serving of halibut at $35, other entrees were similarly petite and we ended up eating a second dinner later)."
Dined on 12/14/2013
One of the best meals I've eaten
in a long time...and I dine out quite frequently. Food was really outstanding, as was the service. Ordered the scallops, rigatoni w/duck sausage & ocean trout. Scrumptious! Save room for desert - the chocolate tort w/raspberries & pistachios was a perfect way to end the meal. I do see people rave about the monkey bread...while very yummy, if you've been to Quality Meats/Italian, it's exactly like that bread which they serve there for free, so maybe not worth it here. Although, the whipped lardo does compliment it quite well. But just an overall fantastic dining experience!"

One of the best restaurant in the

Piora is a gem. The food was
wonderful and the service was actually both sweet and ernest if that is possible. From start to finish the entire dining experience was impeccable. Bravo!"

Food is truly wonderful. Service
still needs some work. Too rushed."

This restaurant is only 4 mos.
old,and it already has become one of our favorites-and we're foodies"
Dined on 12/5/2013
Really enjoyed my dinner with
family at Piora - the service was great, the owner came by to ask us if we had questions on the menu and provided very thorough answers to our questions. The food was outstanding, we had the monkey bread, octopus appetizer, crab pasta, duck sausage pasta and suckling pig and I sampled a bit of each - all were really great, particularly loved the duck sausage pasta. The portion sizes are relatively small but have great flavor. It is a bit on the pricey side and the wine list starts out on the higher end but it is well worth it for a special night out!"
Dined on 11/27/2013
I am wary when there is a new
restaurant on the scene that people all rave about...but this one live up to its hype! The menu is very tightly edited. I tried 4 apps and 2 entrees: Appetizers: Carrots - don't underestimate the carrot! Delicious Scallops BBQ Octopus - of the 4 apps I think this was the weakest. By no means is it bad, it was actually quite good! just relative to the others...if there's any criticism it would be that the sauce overpowers the octopus slightly... Clams Main Crab Bucatini - I split this with another diner, I wish I hadn't. The highlight of my meal. Next time I'm getting a full portion for myself Trout - perfectly cookes No dessert - they are inbetween dessert chefs. I didn't care but some might."
Dined on 12/3/2013
Surprisingly great. Don't miss the
market vegetables or the truffle pasta. Definitely end your night with the banana rum. Can't wait to go back."
Dined on 11/25/2013
The food at Piora was absolutely
delicious, but the service was awful. First, the server brought us the wrong wine, and then realized it and took it away even though we had already started drinking it. It seemed like since it was his mistake we should have at least been able to finish the glass we were given. It's not like he could serve it to someone else. We then we waited 40 minutes with nothing in front of us before we got the wine we actually ordered and had a chance to order any food. For a 7:30 reservation,we did not order food until 8:40! Then the server tried to up-sell us on everything we ordered, which was really irritating. The ambience felt like a stuffy midtown restaurant than a cool west village place. Disappointing."
Dined on 11/21/2013
Can't say enough about our
experience here. The food was just outrageous. The service, perfect. We eat out multiple times a week, and Piora is now at the top of our all time restaurant experiences."
Dined on 11/20/2013
Superb, refined, amazingly
delicious and elegantly prepared food. The service was spot-on: very attentive, maybe too attentive/overly eager (I forgive them, though, as that was the day their excellent 2-star NYTimes review came out and they wanted to work to maintain those 2 stars!). I recommend the heavenly monkey bread, served with seaweed butter and whipped lardo, as well as the market vegetables (it is a complete shock to me that something called "market vegetables" was a favorite dish of mine, but it is true -- order it! I would go vegetarian for the dish!) and the duck. Excellent cocktails. One of the better dining experiences I have had in a while. A must try!"
