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
  • "Have been here.on several occasions. It never disappoints. Traditional Italian American fare is delicious. Service friendly, and experience always a happy one."

  • "An old school treasure and a perfect place for mom or dad to feed a hungry NYU student."

  • "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."

  • "The food was delicious. I had the red snapper livornese and it was perfect. My husband and a friend had the stufffed pork chop annd they both raved about it. All our plates were perfectly clean at the end of the meal! The staff was friendly and attentive and didn't rush us at all. We'll definitely be back!"

  • "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."

  • "Carl was out waiter and couldn't be happier with his service as well as the staff. We sat at the bar had a few drinks, dinner was incredible. The artichokes were the best I have had. We even bonded with family from POSITANO."

  • "Friendly, warm ambiance on a snowy night. Birthday dinner for 5, all dishes very authentic from different regions of Italy. Waiter explained all preparation and suggested dishes prepared to our taste. Both veal and fish dishes were excellent. We will recommend to friends and return."

  • "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 did not enjoy the meal due to too much salt in the food and the people were not friendly and at times were rude. We will not go there again.,"
    Dined on 12/24/2013
  • "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."

  • "You didn't feel you were there for a special holiday. Couldn't believe there wasn't any salad. Food very bland with no personality. I would recommend for what they are good at....The old Italian good dining."

  • "A very, very deep menu of pasta choices, meats, fish, and chicken. The specials looked great, as well. And if you didn't find anything that you liked, they would make something to your liking. Come hungry, because the portions are a good size. We sat in the garden section, which is the most scenic section of the restaurant."

  • "Service was great until we received our food. Never saw waiter after that. Had to ask busboy for check. The food was average. It is in a great location, but I suspect there are other Italian restaurants nearby with better food and service."

  • "This is a great restaurant. We have been going for 25 years whenever we are in NYC and want to celebrate anything special or just take someone out and introduce them to what is so enjoyable about New York City restaurants. You feel special and like family here at the same time. The food, especially the homemade pasta specials are devine. Listen to your waiter as they truly do know what is freshest and the best sauce to serve which each pasta. Walking through Greenwhich Village before or after dinner is always a treat. Whether there are two or ten of you, they take great care of you. Tip: Buy the house wine in a pitcher and then buy the beautiful pottery pitcher to take home as a momento of the fabulous evening. They are handmade in Italy."

  • "Thankfully, this is not the place for nouveau anything. This is classic food, well made. Just delicious. The service is attentive. Water glasses always filled, waiters at the ready to help. Our waiter was able to help me choose a fabulous meal. Artichoke appetizer, veal piccata (the best I've ever had) and zabaglione with strawberries. Yum! The perfect meal in my book! The pasta with bolognese sauce also delicious. Just a lovely experience here, as usual."

  • "The decor is basement kitsch but well worn out. Styrofoam ceilings-very low. The appetizers were below average, salad was a joke and two main courses left both of us with a stomach ache. Never again"

  • "We found a gem at Villa Mosconi! Carl our waiter made our evening delightful. He knew everything about the dishes and made us feel right at home. We have been searching for a restaurant that served food as good as our trip to Italy- we found it! Home made pastas and the right amount of sauce! Our food was prepared by one of the Mosconi's - not a line cook. Authentic Italian! You can't go wrong."
