Lovely place on a Saturday night. My party of eight was late getting there, but they accommodated us. Service was a bit spotty- they forgot the drinks a few people ordered. Atmosphere was fun; food delicious!
Wish maybe they had garlic bread or Malbec or Lambrusco but was fine for a casual evening of drinks and light bites. The rice balls were very good.
Lovely intimate setting with excellent service and tasty dishes all served beautifully. Nice selection of wine and beer at reasonable prices.
8pm Saturday night. We had our choice of seats and within 15 minutes, most of the tables were full. We shared an Arugula salad with apples and almonds-it was light & refreshing. Penne Puttanesca & Eggplant Parmesan were both were prepared and flavorful. Wines by the glass are well priced, we had a Malbec & Montepulciano. Tiramisu & expresso finished the evening. We had a pleasant meal for a reasonable price. A winner! We will be back.
Food was delicious. Waitstaff was friendly and helpful. But one guest had difficulty getting ice tea. The coffee machine was broken. There were only 2 desserts, both of which were dairy based which was a problem for 2 of the guests with lactose intolerance. If they can get everything in order, I think it will be a good neighborhood restaurant.
Cellar 58 was recommended by a friend who has traveled to Italy numerous times and knows good authentic Italian food.
We were 5 people on a Sunday evening which is a great time to go because they don't open until 5:00 and it's not crowded.
Our waiter (and owner) Paolo's service was outstanding. He made the overall experience a pleasure by recommending dishes, taking the time to explain items on the menu, and most of all...informing us that the Calamari did not meet the Chef's standards and would not serve it.
We ordered several appetizers and pasta dishes, all of which were excellent. The Polenta Cakes were my favorite! My daughter had the Bucatini Amatriciana which she hasn't eaten since she studied in Rome last year and it was "Spot On"! Can't wait to go back! The polenta cakes are calling me!
Great service, delicious food and nice ambience.
The wine, food, and service matched a great ambiance. The food portions were bigger than expected for a wine bar, and very good. The wait staff was very attentive and friendly. It has a modern rustic look with romantic lighting.
We went to Cellar 58 because the reviews were good and it was close! We took advantage of an early reservation and promotion from OpenTable (1,000 pts). We were very pleased!! My companion had the linguine w/ clams and I had buccatini w/ ragu as an entree, charcuterie (soppressata), and the arugula salad. Everything was very flavorful and the staff are very attentive. We also had copious amounts of wine - their wine list was impressive, but we stuck to the great sauvignon blanc that was on special for happy hour ($5). I recommend Cellar 58 . You will not be disappointed.
came with a group and had the greatest time; service and food was outstanding
I took my son out for dinner and wanted something simple and delicious. This was the place! The ambiance is excellent and the waiter was incredibly attentive. They brought out some great olive oil and bread, which is nice to see in a day when bread is no longer served. We shared a couple of very generous sized appetizers, excellent white wine, and then true to form Italian main courses - chicken a type of milanese style and a pasta dish to perfection. We had to bring some food home and the price did not break our wallets. I will definitely return.
It's a shame about the food--barely fair. But it was quiet on this Sunday night, and the service was lovely, the wine nice enough--so all in all it was a pleasant last minute experience.
The wine cellar is beautiful and perfect for events. I recent had a birthday party here and it was amazing! Paulio is wonderful and makes it a special occasion!
Nice Italian place in the east village
We were pleasantly surprised by the jazz serenade!
Great private back room where we had a party. Service was excellent. We were literally doted on.
Went for friends birthday party. She preforms there on Monday nights. The place was full. Most if not all were her guest. I only had a pitcher of Sangria bit over priced and a cold cut and cheese plate. Definitely over priced but it is New York City. I saw about ten other plates taken to various customer plates look appetizing but a bit on small portion side. They had a very pretty room in the back that I guess is were they get there name from. It nice for a small group of friends for a tasting or family style diner. I gave it 4 stars because it was not a good night to really review since I went on Monday and was there for an event. Would I go back again? Probably not! But not because of the quality but in New York City there is just to many places to go and there menu was not out of this world.
Services was a bit slow, but entrees very excellent. Very good wine selection. Enjoyable spot
Food was terrific... the only issue was that the service was slow because the someone came to inspect the restaurant right when we got to dinner
Great Steak and wine. Excellent service. Super friendly staff!
The waiter was nice, but the service was way too slow; especially since the restaurant was almost empty. In addition, the lasagna was over spiced and the pasta papardelle was bland. The hamburger was very good with the carmelized onion and cheese.
I found this place at the last minute looking for a place to meet friends, and I was certainly pleased! The location is fairly close to NoHo, but it's not s busy area. The service was great, and the staff was super attentive. I had the lasagna, which was a great portion for the price and tasted incredible.
This spot never disappoints! Our group of six enjoyed a meat and cheese plate, $1.25 oysters and delicious entrees and wine on Saturday night. The service is always great, the staff friendly and the ambiance perfect for making a night of a meal.
we came in off the street on a really cold night and were welcomed with a winning smile by a handsome waiter who brought us delicious chianti and a respectable carbonara!
This was one of my favorite nights out in our latest trip to New York. Soft and inviting ambiance for a very tasty meal. The host was very gracious and the music was a true find. I will recommend this restaurant to friends and family.
I know most people tend to go to this place for wine; however, if this place is a wine bar, it should have stated clearly. The waiter was not attentive at all and our food portion was ridiculous. Try to order their lasagna and you will know what I mean....Won't go to this place again.
We made reservations here just a few minutes before dinner time, sat at a lovely table that was halfway inside/outside, the food was reasonably priced and pretty good (not amazing), the service staff was very attentive and friendly and the wine was good.
Nothing awed me but I would definitely come back here.
This got decent reviews on yelp, so I decided to try it. The service was friendly and accommodating, but they "ran out of pizza" on a friday night at 7:30, which suggests they actually didn't run out of it. limited menu, with bland selections. The wine list was sparse and over priced.
Last time I was here was about an year ago. I have to say that things have been improved a lot since then: The dinner menu is much more understandable, the wine menu has a detailed description of each item on the list with comments from wine spectator and suggestion for pairing. The Service is surprisingly super attentive like in a 5 star hotel; the waiter was always close to us for any needs and the manager, a very friendly charming Italian gentleman, was extremely helpful in our choices of food and wines. There was an old Chaplin black and white movie running on the tv at the bar, and that was a great touch, together with the live jazz band playing in the room. We will be back sooner this time, the experience was simply great!
Food was great: we had the eggplant parm small plate, papardelle in ragu, the tagliata, and finished with tiramisu. Would recommend them all.
The waiter wasnt pushy and suggested a great wine that was very reasonably priced. Also, a pet peeve of mine is when they only offer me a taste of the wine, or hand me the check, when I'm out with my girlfriend. Its not a big deal but it makes her uncomfortable (and me too). Our waiter at Cellar 58 didn't do that. He poured us both a bit of wine at first and placed the check in the middle of the table. It was a small thing but it made a huge difference to us. Highly recommend this place.
I found this restaurant several years ago for a friends birthday. I just returned the other day with some friends who were in from Boston and I almost forgot how good it was. The staff was super attentive, the food was great (especially when your pasta is cooked perfectly!!), and we sat outside which was perfect. I highly recommend this place. Not to mention they take reservations which is key in my opinion.
It is a wine bar, so come here if you plan on drinking. The wait staff was constantly asking us what we wanted to drink... it was super annoying. Food was just alright. Bruschetta & gnocchi were good; chicken skewers were fine but not memorable. Shrimp skewers were dry, I don't recommend them, especially for the price. An alright place, I likely won't come back.
We live in the neighborhood and walked past this place countless times without giving it a try. Now, Cellar 58 has become a regular spot for us. It's a friendly neighborhood restaurant with great, fresh food and a relaxed environment. There is an authentic Italian feel to the place. The people have always been very nice and have given us just the right amount of attention. We have never been rushed. The food has been consistently fresh, and the dishes are simple and tasty. The fresh pastas are great, and the Tagliata con Arugola e Parmigiano has become a favorite of mine. (The back room, the Wine Cellar, is good for a large group if you don't mind the hightop tables.)
The staff was extremely friendly and polite. Multiple people spoke to us and assisted us upon arrival. The meat/cheese board options were great! The overall food/ambiance was not my favorite.
Small quiet atmosphere, looked like there was a nice event room in the back. We both ordered the pasta special which came on shared plate. Great place for an after work dinner
Service poor ... Messed up our appetizer. We told them we were in rush to see a show and to please bring everything at once . Didn't happen ...had to ask for check. Food bad...tomato sauce tasted like chef boyardee
food was meh. service was meh. salad and apps were ok, entrees were weak. I got spaghetti with clams and it was cold.
Small place with a special wine room at the rear. Looks like the wine room would be a great area for a group dinner. But based on size, maybe one large group at a time. The service is extra friendly and the food is good. Will definitely return.
Quaint and cute are not words I use to describe dining in NYC often but that is what it felt here. The place is small with great personal service. It's a good value for the money and the food was great. I'd definitely come back. Good casual dining to meet up with a friend.
In a quiet little street corner, not flashy and slightly underground. The food is good, not amazing but good. Traditional italian, nothing super fancy or exotic but its a good small italian restaurant if you're looking for pasta. They do however have an amazing wine selection because if you walk to the back of the restaurant, there is a cellar dedicated to red wines.
