Wonderful time with a big
Wonderful time with a big group of people. Waiter was knowledgeable and able to recommend great dished. Food was fabulous. Waiters were attentive without making us feel like they were rushing us and trying to turn a table on a busy Saturday night. I will most definitly be going back.

We were pleasantly surprised as we walked in. Very cute. We were in the covered outdoor room out back -- which, I assume, would have the cover removed during warm, nice weather. The food was very good. The service was very good. The price of the food was reasonable. However, we ordered a bottle of wine. There was no choice -- they just had 1 red wine. So we ordered it. We were surprised to see we were charged $44 for that bottle. A tad expensive, I would say. Then with tax & tip on it, it actually cost us over $55. But besides that, we would definitely go back there again.

Great food, service can be slow
We have eaten at Gnocco several times, and we always love the food. The chef here is fabulous - everything is fresh and cooked to perfection. Even the pizza is the best ever! Our only issue is that the service is often very slow. It's not the fault of the wait staff, who are wonderful and try very hard - it's because there aren't enough wait staff. Our waiter had multiple tables and was trying hard to keep everyone happy, but he was only one guy and it was impossible to be everywhere at once. Have patience if you eat here, the food is worth the wait. But I hope they hire more waiters/waitresses!!!

Loco for Gnocco
What a great find. The outdoor garden was charming, with perfect spring evening weather. The service was prompt, professional and friendly. But who cares about any of the rest....the food was Itialian to its core. I have never had gnochhi anywhere that tasted just like my mother's homemade gnocchi, not even in Italy. The only glitch was the music: an endless do-loop of derums and synthesizer that was too loud. They kindly turned it way down when we asked.

Four of us shared 2 appetizers,2 pastas and 2 entrees. Every dish was excellent. The special of the day was filet mignon in a Gorgonzola sauce- one of the best steak dishes I have ever had. All of us agreed that this restaurant is a special find.

Sensational Tuscan fare, home made pasta, and inviting patio dining make this a very special choice for a traditional Italian dinner.

A Local Gem
Gnocco is an Italian restaurant passing as a neighborhood hideaway featuring excellent food from a modest menu. Everything from the pasta on up is handmade and fresh, not ostentatious, and the surroundings include a charming small outdoor garden at the back which can seat maybe 25 people and which has a retractable awning in case of inclement weather.
The service was a little erratic during a Sunday brunch but we didn't care too much because the staff was friendly and accommodating, and the food was so good! They also make their own sliver-thin pizza which is fantastic.
I would recommend this place to all my friends.

Great evening at Gnocco
I took a group of 16 people here for an anniversary dinner and we had a fantastic meal. The staff was very accommodating considering our large group and at no point did we feel rushed. The food here really is great--not the same old menu you're likely to find at pretty much any Italian restaurant in NYC. The tartufata pizza was awesome (mushrooms, truffle oil and speck). Definitely worth checking out.

The restaurant is true Italian. Service was excellent and the outdoor area in the back of the restaurant is just great.

Excellent! And a wonderful family restaurant. The pizza chef tossed the pizza dough to the kids and made them pizza dough bracelets. What a treat for them. And the food was wonderful as well. Really great experience.

The host and our waiter were absolutely wonderful.They were so attentive and soo friendly. We joked and laughed throughout the night. My sisters and I sat and chatted after eating and paying without feeling rushed to leave.
The food. So I had the bufalina pizza which is basically a Margherita pizza but with buffalo mozzarella. Yummers!. My sisters shared a pizza with sausage (maybe?)...I don't remember because I was all up in my pizza, but they really liked it.
In all, I will travel down to Alphabet City any day to hang out with these dudes and eat yummy pizza.

Perfect Birthday Experience
I had a large group (16 people) come to Gnocco for a surprise birthday dinner for my boyfriend, and we had an exceptionally lovely night. The staff was so attentive, we received all of our dishes promptly, and the food was quite delicious. I would recommend Gnocco to anyone!

Great Food and Service.
Genuine Italian Food, NOT American/Italian.
You know an Italian restaurant is going to be good when all the employees are Italians!
