Fiat cafe is not only a roomy cafe in the heart of Nolita but a symbolical warm and welcoming place to grab a bite. The inside contains a colorful surrounding as fiat 500 cars of variant types are fixed on the wall emphasizing its simple but original theme. We serve breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Good food and service, only issue is that the place is tiny and tables are very close to each other, overall very good value for money

Fiat Cafe is simply one of my favorite places to eat, period, and has been since I first discovered it 8-10years back. The food is outstanding, like a real-deal Italian neighborhood restaurant in Italy, and it never fails to please!

We arrived very early, way before our reservation time. We were tired and hot from walking around in the city. The restaurant was quite small, but the food was delicious and the service very good and friendly. Make sure you have cash because no card accepted.

I had the most amazing waitress, Bea, I think her name was, she was spectacular! She made my night so calm and relaxing which is what I needed. I wish all of my dates with myself went this well. The food was amazing and the flavors were explosive. I will definitely be back!

A small and intimate cafe in noho with affordable dishes to top it off. The only downside is the wine selection but overall a great choice for some quality Italian food that wont break the bank.

Fiat is one of our favorite spots for warmth, comfort, and good-quality, hearty, rustic pastas and antipasto. It's tiny, cozy, and casual but the food is knee-bucklingly good.

Service was seriously lacking. We had to beg for drinks, take our order etc from a very unhappy server. Not a singer person at the table finished his/her food. It was all quite bland.
