Great food, helpful service and a nice ambient environment.
It was a dream.
Food superb. Wait staff was lovely, even loaning reading glasses to two of our party!
Garden in the back is delightful and the service is superb. The menu is a little on the heavy side. Maybe it's a year of pandemic cooking, but heavy sauces don't appeal to me as much as they used to - or maybe it's just the hot NY summer. Anyway, this is a great place and I'm so glad they have survived.
Food was delicious. And service/customer service was class act.
The food was amazing and our server was great. This was our second time there
We had a great time! The service was exceptional and all the dishes were SO good! We will be back.
This was our first dining out/inside post Covid meal and it was wonderful. The staff was incredibly warm and welcoming, the setting familiar and the food delicious. It felt like I was at home with my Italian grandmother’s cooking. I highly recommend visiting this restaurant!
Fantastic food and service.
They are not accepting any credit card other than American Express.
great food and excellent service. will definitely go back again
They have a backyard garden that's absolutely lovely. Great service. I thought the portions of Cacio e pepe were a little small at first, but when you're eating that much cheese you definitely get full!
The waiter was super rude
it’s a must. service fantastic. food just as amazing. great vibes.
This restaurant was incredible! The attention to detail from all aspects of our evening was done with grace!
Always a pleasure to eat here. Food is good and service is outstanding. Our waitress, Veronica took great care of us. Always checking that everything met our approval. Eating in the outdoor garden added to the experience. Can't wait to go back.
The staff is so kind there, the food so good, and the ambiance lovely! Can’t recommend enough!
The food was delicious and the staff was very friendly. Would definitely dine again!
Amazing! Get the caccio Pepe!!!
It was my birthday. We were early for our reservation and afraid we would be able to get in. The host was so kind and accommodating, seating is in the garden area. It was a bit loud with a large party in progress but we didn’t mind as it led to a festive atmosphere after our long day. I couldn’t appreciate the exception more. And the lovely tiramisu as a gift was a perfect ending
Great food, service, definitely will come back. Unfortunately, there was a crowd out back that was blatantly TOO loud. I am a fan of birthdays, but their sound was obnoxious and unprofessional, interrupting everyones dinner. If i were a server I would've said something.
Really good food! Great experience! The cheese wheel & Cornish hen is a must try!
We got the cacio e Pepe which was good! we also got the burrata and the truffle pasta which was amazing! The espresso martini were 18 which was ridiculous but the food was amazing! Defiantly a bit expensive. The cacio e Pepe was good but would not get it again. It is also cash only or Amex which was annoying
The food was high quality though a little bit pricey.
The server was good untill the moment she added 22% to the tip without asking and when we didn't give her what she wanted she was really rude about it and chased us to the door.
Best experience ever! The staff was incredible and gave me a lovely birthday surprise dessert. They made my birthday so special! I will definitely be back.
Fantastic! Food and service was great
Friday dinner with friends..
We ordered all the pastas with the beef cheek main and tempura appetizer:
The pastas were all al dente.
The eponymous cacio was prepared gimmicky on a wheel of parmesan which looks great but a mistake in taste.
It is over sauced and not as delicate as you loose the nuance of the pepper taste.
The amatriciana was better and mild but still heavily drenched.
The risottowas delicate but over garnished.
The paccheri was the best one.
The beef cheeks were flavorful and tender.
The 65 dollar wine bottles were good but overpriced.
The granita was the best in all the desserts.
Service was attentive and pleasant.
The good was ok, limited menu with the items having one ingredient that threw it off for me
Love, love, love the cacio pepe! The reason to eat there.
Everything we had was incredible. The appetizer tasted very fresh, the pasta was amazing, and the portion size was perfect. The staff were very responsive and accomodating. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for an authentic italian restaurant.
The people were super nice and the ambience was energetic, yet peaceful. However, the very dish the restaurant is named after (Tonnarelli cacio e pepe) was a letdown, since the pasta went cold by the time it was brought outside to be swirled in the cheese block. This resulted in the dish being chunky and dry, even though I appreciate the showmanship.
HOWEVER, the Fettuccine con crema di parmigiano e perle di tartufo nero was utterly HEAVENLY and I rate it a 100 out of 10. Every bite was perfectly balanced and I just wanted more even after I was full.
Next time, I’d also love to see the restaurant accept payment methods other than just American Express and Cash.
Food was delicious and ambiance was so nice.
I had so much fun with my 5 friends at Cacio e Pepe. We were promptly accommodated as soon as we arrived and we’re offered drinks even off the menu! (margaritas, etc.) The pasta was absolutely delicious - i highly recommend the truffle fettuccini.
Best restaurant ever! Great food great service awesome employees.
Loved it here, food was awesome and had a great time:)
Outstanding food and service! The Cacio e Pepe was delicious and an excellent wine selection.
The people there are amazing, so welcoming and kind. Whatever you need they are there for you. They are also genuinely Italian which add a great deal to the whole experience. They have a garden like place behind their shop where you can sit with the warmth of they individual heaters and light bulbs, perfect to enjoy during the pandemic restrictions. The food is the real thing, fresh pasta (you can absolutely tell the difference) and the most rich cheese you will ever find. I recommend trying the Cacio e Pepe plate, it is without doubt the most unique.
Our dinner was delicious and the staff were very attentive! Will definitely visit again!
Great place - service is the best
