                                                  Chose Aroma because of the positive reviews, and they were accurate. It's a lovely, friendly, fun place with an extensive list of Italian wines and an excellent menu. The downstairs was closed, so we were seated in the dining room at the back -- quiet, comfortable, and cozy. We started by sharing the Caprese with Prosciutto, and Agustin our server (great fun and so friendly) was nice enough to have it split to 2 plates for us. I had the lemon spaghetti with artichokes and scallops, and it was wonderful -- the pasta was perfectly al dente. She had the gnocchi, which was also excellent, and then we shared a selection of sorbets and gelato for dessert. The staff was great, very friendly and helpful, the wine was excellent, and it was a really nice time -- will definitely be back!

The food is phenomenal and the wine list is fun to explore! The staff is incredible as well. I recommend this to anyone I know going to NYC (or living in NYC looking for new places)! Can't wait until I can return again!

                                                  We have eaten at Aroma a couple of times when visiting NYC and both times have been excellent. The food is superb, a great wine list and excellent service. The staff make you feel right at home and provide attention when you need it, but are not hovering about. We'll certainly return the next trip to NYC.

Aroma is a beautifully appointed restaurant that has warm, welcoming ambiance. We loved our food. I had the arugula salad, the roasted beets and pork two ways, while my companion had the meatball appetizer and the orecchiette pasta with cockles. Yum!

                                                  This was my second visit to Aroma Kitchen & Winebar, and I was pleasantly surprised the staff remembered me, the welcome we received was warm and friendly. Service was great and the food was delicious.

                                                  Great little restaurant with a vibrant wine scene. It's only got ten tables so it's a bit tight which was cozy for us but some might want more room for themselves. Cheese choices were delicious and the charcuterie was nicely done.

                                                  Maybe our fifth visit to Aroma, each time preceding or following a performance at the Public, just a 5 minute walk away. Although the wine list appeared considerably pricier than we remembered from past visits, we found a decent sangiovese for $50. We started with arugula salad (very good and generous portion) followed by the spring risotto (excellent) and the strascinati pasta (also excellent). Service was good and friendly and we are very fond of the homey rear room with family-style seating. Only complaint is that seats are uncomfortable. At $65/pp wine, tax and tip included Aroma is a fair deal. I wouldn't go out of my way to eat here but we will definitely return for pre-theater in the future.

                                                  My wife and I went to Aroma before seeing a show at the Public Theater. It was wonderful - a real neighborhood gem. Small and kind of antiquey, but terrific food and wonderful wait staff. We will go again.

                                                  Aroma continues to deliver. Vito and team are excellent hosts: really appreciate the willingness to accommodate requests and cater to all needs. The food was excellent -- great mix of flavors, well portioned and easy to share. The ambiance is great -- we had one of the private rooms downstairs, and allowed for a fantastic evening. We will be back.

                                                  This is a charming restaurant with very good food and excellent service. This was our second visit, which establishes our past satisfaction. The misstep was the desserts, specifically the sorbet and gelato. Both had very little flavor, the sorbet was icy and lacked any pleasing intensity and the blackberry gelato had almost no flavor, just a vague berry undernote. The waiter said both were made in house. If so, they need to be more generous in their use of the fruit.

                                                  The food was delicious. However we did feel a bit rushed as the food came out in 5 minutes. Also the restaurant was way too hot. We will definitely be back because this restaurant has special meaning for us and the food is great. But hoping they take these two suggestions. Also, please serve black iced tea, not just mint!

                                                  Super cosy in the back room close to the fire place. The restaurant is a hidden gem in Noho. The food is honest and delicious, the host is fantastic, the service great. I will definitely be back.

                                                  Went here with a date last Friday and would highly recommend it. Unlike most wine bars, they have a full menu of food which isn't limited to tapas/small plates. Everything was expertly prepared and our waitress pointed out some items they could make for us which were off the menu. An absolutely great experience and we'd definitely go back.

                                                  Unfortunately we had less than an hour. The waiter recommended dishes that took the least amount of time. The food was very good simple lots of flavor. Next time we hope to have a more leisurely dinner. Awesome.

                                                  Food was good - fresh ingredients, but some enjoyed their dishes more than others. The meatballs were kind of dry. I had the black linguini + Squid Ink homemade pasta, which was really fantastic. Chocolate Molten cake was delicious! The staff was very attentive, helpful, and accommodating.

                                                  Have been here a number of times. Service staff is great, but owner seems to have a problem with accommodating customers. For instance, my friend did not want chickpeas with salmon. Server told her that owner allowed chef to remove ingredient, but absolutely no substitutions. This is not what I expect from good neighborhood restaurant. Also, requested two half glasses of wine, with suggestion that the charge could be for a full glass of the more expensive wine. Again, answer was that owner did not allow this. This is just unacceptable in terms of customer service. I was thinking of hosting a dinner for 6 a this restaurant in mid august - but think I will go to a more customer friendly restaurant. I feel really bad for the wait staff who have to deliver the dictates of a clearly clueless owner.

Quaint and quiet location with cute front bar scene- steps away from the scene crazed east village mix.

                                                  Aroma's food and wine are terrific, but on the night we were there it was almost empty--why? Great food, good service (attentive but not intrusive), excellent wine, a fine space (nothing special but more than comfortable), in a convenient location near other places where you'll wait an hour for table. Highly recommended.

                                                  Been there a few times and haven't had a bad dish or app yet. They will happily uncork a bottle just to sample before ordering a glass, and there are many good choices. The space is small so reservations are recommended.

                                                  Aroma is a place we often dine before or after the Public Theater, just a 3 minute walk away. The front is a wine bar and in the rear, down a narrow passage, is the simple but charming dining room, with no more than 10 tables. Service is genuinely friendly and welcoming. We had the pasta appetizer and arugula salad (both excellent) and the squid ink pasta with seafood (excellent) and veal scallopine (decent). The wine list is short but interesting and we found a good half bottle of piemonte at a reasonable price. At $75/pp tip and coffee included it is fairly priced by neighborhood standards. This was our 4th or 5th visit and we are always happy, but always worried that next time we will find the building torn down for some yuppie condo palace. Enjoy it while it's there.
