Fiat Cafe Ratings and Reviews
Cafe Fiat must be one of the best finds in Soho. It’s authentic Italian Food on the edge of Little Italy. The food was delicious and incredibly reasonable. Pastas, eggplant parmigiana, chicken dishes that taste soulful and homemade. The staff are friendly, cheerful and helpful. It’s the best.
Food at Fiat Cafe is always delicious. It's one of my favorite go to spots to catch up with an old friend or for a casual date night. The dim lighting casts a romantic ambiance but it reminds me of sitting at a restaurant in Italy somewhere. The only downside is it's cash only but otherwise, everything is amazing.
Great quality food at very reasonable prices. The Ravioli and Rigatoni dishes were delicious. Tried two of the Bruschetta types as well - the eggplant one was especially tasty. Only complaint is that the restaurant is quite small, so can be a bit loud and cramped when at capacity. But overall, a great pick for causal dining at cheap prices with very good food.
Fiat is a cozy restaurant......cozy means it will seat 32-34 people at one time. It is a noisy restaurant but I think that is the charm. The service is nice because the restaurant is small and they are happy to address any issues with your food. The food was very good. We had the Ricotta Ravioli, Gnocchi and Fiat Penne and they were all good. My family cleaned their plates.
Two side notes. Mott Street is where they filmed part of the GodFather....scene where Marlon Brando's character had the assassination attempt. The other is that this is a CASH only restaurant. They have an ATM downstairs, however the first time I used it , it did not distribute any cash and flashed an error code very quickly forcing me to try the transaction again....which they deducted the amount from my account twice and now I am dealing with my bank.....so AVOID the ATM at the restaurant.
Just a casual brunch with my boyfriend. Glad I made a reservation in advance. Had the salmon eggs and of course, the carbonara and sangria. Relative to the price, the portion was great and the food was tasty. Highly recommend for casual brunch with friends or a date before or after you go exploring SOHO or LES. Enjoy!
Fiat is a wonderfully charming neighborhood restaurant with outstanding food. The pastas and salads wee not only well-prepared and tasty, they were also very reasonably priced - amazing for New York! I would highly recommend Fiat to anyone looking for charming ambience and great food.
The food was great! We had breakfast there and all four people in our party enjoyed their meals. The problem is we made a reservation for right when they opened because we had an appointment to get to that morning. They were not at all ready to open when we arrived. We waited over 20 min before they could get started on our order....not acceptable.
Service is slow, despite the reservation. Wine wasn't the best quality. Brunch was probably a better option. The carbonara was good. Tables are very tight together. The coffee was very good. I am Italian, not sure this place was a truly Italian place but it was good to have tried it.
What a wonderful little place!! Food was delicious, from the appetizers to the salads to the pasta (we didn't have room for dessert!). Service was excellent, warm and welcoming. We are from California, in NYC to celebrate our son's graduation. This little gem was recommended to us by a Brooklyn native. Glad we took her advice!! The place is tiny so I would recommend making reservations. Well worth the visit, highly recommended!
Had made a 4pm reservation just in case but we arrived 30 minutes earlier and we were seated right away. Ordered the Proscuitto with Mozzarella and the Insalata Di Mare to start and they were good. The Pappardelle pasta was great but the eggplant parm was just okay. We were too stuffed for dessert. Not a huge menu but a nice selection. Will definitely go back.
