A word from Villa Mosconi
Villa Mosconi is a family-run restaurant located in the heart of New York City's historic Greenwich Village. The restaurant has been serving the same great food under the guidance of the Mosconi family since 1976 at the same location on MacDougal Street between Bleecker and West Houston streets. The restaurant offers superb authentic Northern Italian cuisine that reflects the family's origins in the Emilia-Romagna region of Italy.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Villa Mosconi is a great find!! First thing of note is that the staff makes sure that you feel welcome and just like you've arrived for dinner in their home. The food is wonderful. Everything you would expect from a restaurant with a tried and true menu, experience and expertise over the years. I would recommend: 1 Try the homemade desserts & limoncello ! 2 Ask for a table in the garden room. It's a great vibe & the room has a glass ceiling."

  • "Nothing too fancy, nothing special but it is good food if you wish to have some typical Italian fare in the Village. The ambiance is a bit tired but friendly, and the pasta is very good. You can easily select anything from the menu and it will be the appropriate taste."

  • "I go to this restaurant every time I make it to New York. I much prefer the smaller family-owned style restaurants in the village to any of those in time square. Never disappointed, always enjoy going there."

  • "Food was excellent. Enjoyed the sautéed scallops. My son loved his fettucine alfredo. My wife had Chicken endorato and loved it. The service was excellent. The restaurant had a very nice homelike feeling. We completely enjoyed our experience."

  • "Villa Mosconi is a nice family-owned Italian restaurant that makes you feel right at home. The service is great, the food is awesome and you can practice your Italian by conversing with the waiters. I thought that my waiter was very attentive and it made me feel special. It also made me miss my mother-in-law's cooking. I would highly recommend Villa Mosconi to anyone."

  • "Service was good. Four star A not. Absolutely no. Quality none. Old restaurant. Expectations high because of four-star rating. We eat in gourmet restaurant, and this was a real disappointment. Steak Bistecca very tough & chewy, spaghetti was even terrible and frozen vegetables. Started with stuffed artichoke - large flattened artichoke watery bread in middle - sorry to say we couldn't find redeeming factor. Overall rating ZERO stars"

  • "Going to Villa Mosconi is like going to a favourite aunt's house. You and your friends are given a hearty welcome and shown to your table. Wait staff is warm, professional and knowledgeable about specials as well as the menu items; food is delicious good home cooking and each course is delivered at respectable intervals. "

  • "The food and service are wonderful, but so is the ambience -- the tables aren't crowded together, so it's the perfect place to dine and enjoy the company of those you're with."

  • "This was our second visit to Villa Mosconi. My lemon chicken was cooked perfectly. One of my sons ordered the chicken parm and he loved it. Another son enjoyed the trout. My husband liked the shrimp scampi and my youngest liked the tortellini. The complimentary bruschetta was a nice touch. Our waiter Alex was wonderful and attentive. We really enjoyed our dinner at Villa Mosconi! "

  • "When we walked in, I knew without them saying anything that this is, what I would term, an old school restaurant. The room itself has not been updated in quite a while except for maybe the paint which has been kept fresh. But the tile ceilings and banquet room chairs with an ambience of years gone by gave me a questioning pause. And even some of the menu options - this is classic italian food un-modernized which was a little overwhelming for me but great for my guest who lived in Italy at one point and has many fond memories on the North Shore in San Francisco. And then Grandma's tortelli in sage and cream sauce came out. HOLY WOW!! This family business sure knows how to stay focused on the food. And that's what mattered in the end. "

  • "Reviews described good food & friendly/family-like service; also understatement & a little-bit Old World. Boy, are we happy with the choice. From the moment we arrived (45-minutes early, to get out of the rain) 'til leaving hours later, we were greeted & treated as though we were oft-returning guests. Our waiter quickly picked-up on our style & enhanced our evening with his smiles & patter, plus attentiveness & leaving us alone when he sensed that was our mood. The restaurant was filled with patrons familiar to the staff, hugs & greetings abounded. The room resounded with laughter, story-telling, and good times being had. While large portions usually indicate poor quality, that was not the case. The portions were large and delicious!"

  • "The only times that we do not eat at Villa Mosconi when we visit New York is when Villa Mosconi is closed. The food is excellent, the wait staff is fantastic and friendly and knowledgeable. Danny, who is our regular waiter, is the best. If Danny cannot wait on us, Carl is at the ready for fill in for Danny!"

  • "This is a great classic Italian American restaurant. A lot of locals frequent the place regularly - knowing that they will get consistently good food -and large portions. There are no surprises - Chicken parmigiana is just what you expect- and delicious. The pastas are homemade - the palia e fino (green & white angel hair with cream, peas, prosciutto)- is outstanding! The waiters are all long time career experts ( most are part of the family) and will make sure you get anything you want. They can make suggestions if you're not sure which direction to go in. We've spent many happy family celebrations here....and can't wait to go back! The decor is very dated - but who's looking once the food arrives!"

  • "Gets. Jerry and team do a great job in making everyone feel like they are going home to Nonna's for a great Italian meal. My in-laws and families have been going to the Villa Masconi for 30 plus years and love them like family from John (previously) at the bar, now Mike to all the staff members including the older staff's children. Go and enjoy and make sure Jerry gets you some Zabayon & an after dinner Zambuca (3 coffee beans for Good luck)! Salud!!"

  • "We picked this restaurant due to its proximity to The Barrow Street Theatre and were not disappointed. The food was very good and the service was outstanding. They have a lot of space in several different rooms and we were seated in the back room, which had the most lovely feel with its glass roof and lights. It could be the area they open up in nice weather for a garden feel. Give it a try."

  • "Not ever being in this part of the downtown area for a show we wanted to find a nice Italian restaurant for reservations close by for after our show. After reading through lots of reviews & comments, we decided on Villa Mosconi. We were not disappointed. We were greeted immediately as we walked in, checked our coats and were seated. The restaurant was about 3/4 full upon our arrival. The service was excellent, the drinks were great and the food was spectacular. We would definitely recommend and if in the area in the future we will definitely go back. While sneaking outside for a quick smoke, one of the women owners came out to check on the falling snow and we had a very nice chat."

  • "Great food. My girlfriend and I came here for Valentine's day.. The food was great, it was not to busy, and we didn't feel rushed at all. Also the cannolli at the end was quite good. I 'd also recommend the house wine! We're definitely going to come back to this neighborhood gem. And the prices were decent."

  • "Based on the reviews that I had read on Open Table, this seemed like a great place to take my daughter for her 16th birthday with a few friends. The food was fine, but the place was tired, old looking and somewhat gloomy. There were cheap and dusty looking paintings on the walls and a big, unattractive No Smoking sign in the dining room. Luckily the prices were good and we were able to go elsewhere for a more festive location for dessert."

  • "We walked in, and it looked like a bar, so we walked right back out, only to have one of the workers go after us, saying "The restaurant is in the back." Indeed, it was - three separate rooms. We had a lovely waiter, whose only misstep was not telling us about the specials. I was slightly disappointed that they didn't have capellini, but I was very happy with the Shrimp Parmigiana."

  • "Food was great, came with a group for a birthday dinner and everyone really enjoyed all of their meals. I believe they said that all of the pasta was homemade, and I could tell! Owners were friendly; good place for a celebration or special occasion. However at the end of our meal they told the group they could not accept more than 2 cards; understandable, but since I've never had that happen at a restaurant before I think it would be helpful to include a note online or in the menu so patrons come prepared! Overall very good, I would come back just to try more of the menu since everything looked/sounded delicious"

  • "We have eaten here frequently, but never on a Saturday night. The food is very good and usually the service is friendly and attentive. On this evening I was convinced that we were invisible. We were seated at a table for 2 in the middle of the back room. For 15 minutes at least 3 waitpersons passed back and forth past out table without asking if we wanted a drink, giving us a menu or in any way noticing that we were waiting to be noticed as diners. After 15 minutes of sitting there, we asked a busboy if our table had a waiter. A waitress attending to a large table nearby did us a favor and took our order so that we would get something to eat. It was an awful experience and we will never go again on a crowde Saturday night."
