What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
7.7

Always packed Morandi in the West Village is a popular Girls’ Night Out spot serving Italian favorites. The porterhouse for two is amazing.

Ratings 7.5-8.0:These are restaurants that are reliable, tasty, and particularly good for whatever we have deemed them “Perfect For.” Hit up a 7.7 for Date Night with confidence, as long as you don’t need the restaurant to be the most interesting thing that happens that night.

A good, consistent spot, marred this time by frozen tiramisu, which suggests not fresh/not house made. Poor.

We are on our annual trip to nyc and this meal was outstanding. The service was excellent from the host, bartender, waiter and busboys. Everyone was very welcoming and that’s not always the case in nyc. Apps, main course and dessert all amazing. Great experience!

Morandi's staff greeted us promptly and efficiently. The hostess took us to a nice table and the waiter csme immedisately. Several dining room and kitchen staff served us with constant refills. But the magic was in the food. My Scallops Raviolli was heavenly. A real treat for the palette. My highest recommendation. Plus it was a stone's throw from our destination, The Village Vanguard.

Overall, the dining was overshadowed by the wait. We had 8:30 reservations and we were sat at 9:20pm.

There is much disorganization in their seating system, and reservations on a Sat evening do not seem to matter.

Just what we were looking for after a long day walking around the city. Just far enough away from Times Square to feel more like a neighborhood spot. Good food, warm and friendly. Wine by the carafe was like a split bottle which was also perfect.

Morandi is one of those spots that even if it is your first visit everyone goes out of their way to make you feel like you live in the neighborhood and are there a few times a week. The food is fantastic with a wide range of delicious options that are sure to please anyone!

This is my second time at Morandi, both times disappointing. I ordered a simple spaghetti & meatballs and it was not good - the meatballs were hard, not meaty, very salty, the sauce was commercial tasting and the pasta was over-cooked. The waiter was nice and the ambiance was fine, but there were also people smoking outside the front door and it kept wafting in. After complaining twice, they finally shoed away the smokers. Not a great experience.

The service this last visit was lacking. We waited quite a long time to order, and an even longer time to have our plates cleared and to get the check. Our waiter never checked on us once we'd gotten our food. I was rather disappointed, as the previous two experiences I've had at Morandi were fun and seamless.

Morandi never fails. Since it opened more than 9 years ago, the restaurant has stood out thanks to the attention to the smallest details to customer service. The menu is well executed and the wine list continues to be superb. The staff is very professional and always take an interest in your experience and how to make it better. I was very pleased with Jeannete (I may be misspelling her name) and Franklin. They both performed at the highest levels of professionalism.
