What Insiders Are Saying
Always packed Morandi in the West Village is a popular Girls’ Night Out spot serving Italian favorites. The porterhouse for two is amazing.
Good spot. Solid. Just a bit too hot inside.
Excellent food and service. A bit overpriced but that is to be expected in the West Village.
Been coming for years, but it has now taken a full step backwards.
Morandi is a remarkably consistent and rock solid experience every time. The service level is consistently fantastic. I live nearby and am always made to feel welcome, I mean always, which is awesome. My faves are the Tues branzino special and the focaccias, particularly the caprese and the prosciutto focaccias. Also, when the whether is good, there's some serious people watching to do here if you care about that sort of thing. For me, no matter what else is going on, I know they know I'm a local, and I'll always be taken care of, which seems super cool to me for such a busy and well known joint, seems like they go out of their way to be hospitable in all the right ways no matter who ya are.
Great authentic food, quality ingredients . Service is good
Have loved this restaurant in the past and always recommended it. This last time the pasta was very over cooked and the service was mediocre at best. The waiter was not the least attentive and seemed preoccupied. Overall we were sadly disappointed and not sure we will return anytime soon.
Salmon was cooked perfectly and ricotta/zucchini crostini were to die for. Service was a little bit slow on refilling wine glasses but other than that no complaints!
It was very crowded but food was outstanding and so was ther server.
Everything was wonderful EXCEPT the noise level which was deafening. We were hoping to sit outside where it is quieter, but it was raining.
I love this restaurant! The burrata is perfect, the cannoli too. Everything is good.
Excellent breakfast. Service attentive but not overbearing. Very pleasant environment. Not cheap.
Morandi was delicious and very friendly toward our one year old during lunch. Couldn’t recommend the restaurant more highly.

Terrible food and overpriced. Poor service. Please don’t go there.
Fantastic food, great patio!
Morandi is a great spot if you are trying to catch an outdoor space that you can walk into with 5 minutes notice. They take reservations but if you get there for brunch before noon you won't need one. Food is good, not amazing. Prices are nice (alcohol is a bit more).
Food is excellent, a little pricey but excellent. Must try the raspberry prosecco, to die for!!
Never disappoints. Good fun, friendly service, a great local gem.
Deafening noise level. Couldn’t wait to get out. Skipped desert.
The waiter was excellent, was helpful and let my friend and I catch up, I didn't feel rushed and the weather was nice so we sat outside. That was a treat.
Really good food, small portions for the price
waiter brought me bottle of wine from a newer year and played it off as it was ok. Then charged me full price. Also the bowl of penne that I ordered was the worst pasta dish I have ever eaten. Thanks for nothing
The food here is consistently fresh and delicious. Service excellent too. We loved the artichokes appetizer, menu says fried but they are not breaded and not oily, they are more roasted and perfect. We ate healthy - chicken, fish ,spinach and a bite of their crusty bread satisfied us beautifully. Wines good and fairly proced. Next time going for a pasta cuz they look amazing!
Perfect! Great for a brunch and even better for special occasion!
Very busy Italian restaurant with good buzz about it. We had dinner. Took a little while to get seated as our table was not ready but happy to have a drink at the bar with bar seating while waiting. Not massive portions (just normal to me as a Brit) so group of 4 shared 3 starters and then a main each. Wine varies considerably in price. Octopus starter was divine and I had the lemon pasta (Pico al limone) for main - very nice. Companions had grilled skirt steak and sea bream - both were nice but skirt steak came already carved so not quite what expected. Dessert of hazelnut cake was divine! Not cheap but good for a treat (and everything is expensive in Manhattan!)
Our server was very helpful and prompt. We had eaten at Morandi before, so we felt sure that we would like the food. Since we were going to the theater, our server made sure we were served on time.
This Greenwich Village restaurant is pretty happening place at dinnertime. Don't come if you want to have a quiet and romantic evening, but if you like buzz, noise, and good people watching--plus excellent Italian food--this is for you!
Let’s start by saying I’ve eaten at this restaurant at least 30 times. Tonight was HORRIBLE. NEVER SPENDING ANOTHER DIME AT THIS RESTAURANT! $174 for 25 min wait on an 8:00pm reservation. Waitress couldn’t understand fizzy water with lime not lemon. Waitress and manager couldn’t understand we want octopus and meatballs as our appetizer and “we know what we want to order”. 15 mins later are you ready to order? Oh my god YES!!! We ordered a bottle of Pinot Noir which they brought tout suite, as it required NO EFFORT. OVER ALL LETS SAY THIS RESTAURANT IS TOO BIG FOR IT’S TROUSERS! EVERYTHING HAS AN EXPIRATION DATE AND THIS RESTAURANT IS PAST ITS PRIME.
If you can get a table outside- it’s worth the mediocre and expressive food.
The host on the night we went was overly affected with a very snobby attitude. He told us the empty outdoor tables were reserved despite being told when I called a few times that there was NO way to reserve outdoor tables. It turns out there were two outdoor tables that were reserved for some celebrities and another that was for another group they perhaps had some clout that we clearly did NOT. Inside the volume was so loud that made it somewhat
unpleasant. The best thing about the place was the waiter, who could not have been more attentive and sweet.
Not worth it other than a drink and an appetizer on a night you can sit outdoors.
Alessandro made every penny worth it - his service was phenomenal. yummy Brussel sprout salad and ricotta toast!
Very disappointed. The restaurant is VERY loud and even the waitress had difficulty hearing our order. The full orders of pasta were very small, and overpriced for the size. When we complained to the manager, he basically did nothing about it and could care less. The menu recently changed and so has the food. Just not what it used to be. This is not an inexpensive restaurant and I truly feel you could better value, and better taste, elsewhere.
My go to spot for brunch!
Always a good visit here
Loud. Great food, service. But loud.
Like all Keith McNally places top notch in every way.
Great spot with a lively atmosphere and enjoyed the food!
Our favorite when in NYC which is often. Always have a great meal and when we recommend it everyone always thanks us. For lunch I love the meatball panini!
Amazing food and great vibes in the heart of the west village
Always solid...great food (love the burrata, meatballs, pastas, Brussels sprouts salad, & rose) & great vibe on a sunny day!
We ordered several dishes and shared among the 5 of us. It was delightful and we were able to try many different things!
I loved how attentive the staff was! As soon as one course was complete they were ready with fresh plates and silverware! It was awesome! I highly recommend Morandi for any occasion! A beautiful restaurant with a super friendly staff!
It's just too loud. It becomes unbearable. A shame, because the food is good. Perhaps an outdoor seat is better.
Also, the parents with screaming children running around did not help matters.
