egg pasta with classic meat sauce

Linguine alle Vongole
pasta with clams, white wine & green garlic
ALWAYS, ALWAYS the best ( and the perfect meal and company prior to the city shutdown due to coronavirus). The wine was pretty good too, and the espresso martinis! 😎 Can’t await for this to all be over with to return! Hang in there.
Very good restaurant, great welcome and service, nice set up, good food. Only downside was the noise as it was full and very loud inside.
My family of 7 that dines out together on Sunday nights and eats out at top restaurants 4-5 times a week was quite taken aback by the aloof server we had this weekend. He acted like he wanted nothing to do with us and I noticed the same at other tables. We ordered 3 bottles of wine and quite a few appetizers and entrees and other cocktails so we should have been an important table to him. My Pasta Bolognese arrived with virtually no bolognese sauce. It looked like I had taken my Friday night leftovers out for Sunday dinner and the sauce had all been eaten. This was the first time in 18 months of dining out in NYC I had to send my dish back. Our appetizers were quite nice as were several of the other entrees. In the past we have enjoyed dining here very much so perhaps this was just an off night. This server really should not have been working if he hates his job so much. With so many great restaurants in the West Village and Chelsea we won't be rushing back any time soon.
Can't say enough good things about this restaurant. Delicious food, cozy and lively. There's a certain buzz to it. Every person in their was having an engaging conversation. Good wine selection too. Loved it.
Everything was great, but the noise level was so high that it made it almost impossible to have a conversation.
I love your restaurant but it sure would be nicer if it were a bit more quiet.
Fantastic service, food and fun atmosphere, as always. Morandi is a favourite that never fails.
The interior is relaxed enough to bring the family and charming enough for date night! The service is Profesional and attentive. Classify great Italian food! The wine list is great and reasonably priced. Get the sea Bream if you like fish. It’s very tasty! The classic dishes are great as well!
Always a good experience! Great food, happy vibe
Great date spot. Didn’t seat us for 30 minutes though.
My first time at Morandi was a fabulous experience! The staff are incredibly attentive, food amazing, will definitely be back!
Very cute cozy place. The portions were small, the food was good, nothing over the top amazing.
Perfecto! Casual atmosphere with top notch food.
Place was great. Food was good and the wine list is affordable. Cocktails weren’t my favorite but overall enjoyed my experience
Great food and service, and fun as always.
Amazing food, ambience and service. This place is special.
Had perfect lunch with young visitors from out of town. Morandi was a very choice for a lively meal.
Too loud and crowded
We thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Morandi. Two of our party ordered the Porchetti special. The pork was cooked and seasoned perfectly -- a rare treat.
Others in our party had the more traditional pastas, all of which were excellent.
We highly recommend Morandi!
It’s rare you’re able to get delicious food, perfect ambiance, and quality service. Morandi nailed it in all aspects. Looking forward to the next dinner. Excellent all around
not enough vegetarian food
Morandi is my go to place for great pasta and excellent Italian wine. It is the best for entertaining out of town visitors - good location, consistent food, nice ambience. The service was a little slow last visit, probably due to holiday staffing, but at least we had some delicious red to drink while waiting.
Always the best—and we’ve been eating here for years and years and years. As a foodie and 50+ year-old native NYer, I like to try every new restaurant and every cuisine...But I always come back to Morandi!
Portions of pasta small. Food was average. Very busy on Saturday night
The lemon spaghetti was amazing!!!
Food was great. Clearly a busy evening for Valentines Day. By maximizing the amount of guests they were serving (squeezing in additional two tops wherever possible), you could barely move or walk around! Service was also pretty slow. Luckily we weren’t in a rush, but it would have been more of an overall better experience and felt a bit more special without being so crammed into our seats.
Solid choice any night of the week with a bustling scene and delicious, classic food. Also excellent cocktails and wine selection.
Burrata was great as was the mafalde with sausage and broccoli rabe. It’s a fun neighborhood spot and the food came fast. Very good wine by the glass selection which is always a plus. Will be back!
Great food, atmosphere and service. What else is there!
Loved the restaurant, would definitely go back. Only problem was that even with a reservation on Open Table, they put us at a table that was too small for our party of 4 so we were a little crowded- maybe that’s just a NYC thing
At Morandi the food is always good, room buzzy and cheerful but the service can be little lackadaisical though.
Dependable, pleasant & excellent place for a good conversation or business meeting at lunch. Dinners can get loud, but it's an exuberant loud and not unpleasant, and the food is unsurprising but fresh & well prepared.
My friend and I have enjoyed dinner here over 40 times in the past 18 months. The standard menu (with its numerous appetizers) is outstanding, and the seasonal specials never disappoint.
So loud!! Food was good but many large groups eating dinner and could barely hear my colleague speak.
Morandi is still one of the best restaurants in the NYC!!!!!!!The food is always amazing....Prices are good and
its always packed with a super crowd.....
Morandi always delivers great food, and the room is a winner. Love it. But the noise level at Morandi is beyond. I made the huge mistake of arranging a business dinner here, and we literally had to shout the entire evening. If you are looking to spend an evening with a lot of loud, screaming pretty young things, this is your place. Otherwise, save Morandi for lunch.
Always a culinary experience. We loved the lemon pasta, burrata, meatballs and foccia to start. As entrees the eggplant, grilled chicken and Bologna’s eggs were amazing.
Pleasant room and vibe, but got exceedingly loud after 800pm. Service was less than attentive as the room filled. Delicious Brussels sprouts salad. My fish was flavorful, but definitely overcooked. Gelato had a weird salty aftertaste--couldn't finish it. Might give them another try in warmer weather, at an outdoor table on a less crowded evening.
Loved the food! Standouts were the gnocchi with mushrooms and the lemon Parmesan pasta. Service was great, we were there early and it was cozy and quiet—could see it getting quite noisy as the room fills up... but I’d definitely go back and highly recommend.
We had a fantastic meal and the service was excellent, looking forward to our next visit.
