Consistently excellent, this East Village gem is known for innovation and excellence in Roman cuisine. While Chef Salvatore Corea creates a seasonal menu, partners Alessandro Peluso and Giusto Priola note that Cacio e Pepe remains faithful to its signature namesake dish: home-made pasta brought to your table and spun in a wheel of pecorino cheese, then dusted with a flourish of pepper. Voted a ‘Critic’s Pick’ by New York Magazine, Cacio e Pepe is celebrated by reviewers as a classic Italian restaurant with a sense of style: A 50-seat garden is set behind the main dining room, there is al-fresco dining out front, and waiters with superior wine knowledge help you select the perfect beverage accompaniment to your meal. The mystery remains whether it is the garden, the cuisine, or the service which lifts Cacio e Pepe above and beyond its peers on the NYC restaurant scene. The answer, however, may best be expressed in French: It has that je ne se qua.

Went to this restaurant with a few girlfriends and I’m telling you, it was the best pasta I’ve had in NYC! The cheese wheel was everything I expected and more! Definitely going back!

We set the occasion as date night and got seated at a table secluded in the back. We felt like we were the only people in the restaurant. The food was great and service was adequately attentive. Overall a great night.

Very friendly staff and very accommodating! Would suggest putting that they only accept Cash or Amex more visibly online so that guests aren’t surprised when they arrive!

The appetizers were the only reason I gave this place a two. The food wasn’t good. The cheese wheel pasta was cold. The pasta was dry. The place was tiny. The prices were outrageous for the poor quality of food. The lasagna was very bland. The meatballs were literally the only highlight of the meal.

Our table had the Traditional Cacio E Pepe dish, meatball appetizer, eggplant appetizer and another pasta dish. Everything was great! Service was fast and friendly. Interior was quaint and cute. Would definitely recommend!
