Amazing! Hadn’t been in a year and the food was even better than I remembered. Had the salmon with broccoli rabe and potatoes for side dishes. Soooo good! Service was exceptional. The manager made sure we were comfortable and warm. My macchiato was made perfectly. Will be going back soon!

This has become my “go to” spot for dining. Consistently good food, excellent friendly service and they make a mean Negroni. What’s not to like.
Even the outdoor dining is done right. I haven’t had a bad meal yet!!

Wonderful food but service was bad - didn’t have a table reserved when I arrived and did not feel tables were properly socially distanced. Would have gone somewhere else if it wasn’t Christmas Day & could have walked up to a new restaurant.

Nothing special. The fried calamari was a huge disappointment and my husband’s steak was more gristle than meat. The cacio e pepe was really good, though.

We enjoyed our dining experience and will definitely go back. But, I question the value of two items - $17 for a glass of house Chianti and $12 for the pudding dessert.

Please note, overall I enjoyed and will be back. Keith McNallly’s restaurants are magical.

Honestly this place is the best. Everyone here is super warm, welcoming, and professional. The outdoor patio is smartly set up, and indoors is also gorgeous! My friend and I had the best time. Highly recommend: the salmon, the scallop pasta, any of the Prosecco cocktails, the espresso martini, and obviously the tiramisu. I’ve literally raved about this place to everyone I care about in the past few days lol. A legit Italian joint in the West Village! If you sit outside, you get a nice view of a little park across the street. 10/10 would recommend; can’t wait to come back again soon ♥️

Also, I respect their decision to stay closed even when outdoor dining/takeout/delivery was possible. I think waiting and fully preparing to reopen was a very good move, and it shows. So — props to the team!

Great food and service. They were very busy during a Saturday brunch and we had to wait for our ordering - the manager graciously provided a bottle of Prosecco as an apology. Always enjoy morandi!

The food was incredible as usual - tagliatelle alla bolognese was the highlight. Service was wonderful, was there for a business dinner and we ended up staying at the table longer than expected and we didn’t feel rushed or as if it was an issue.

This was the first family meal in months - great to be eating outside in an unseasonably warm November evening. The distance from other tables was enough to feel comfortable. Somewhat high noise but manageable. Food and wine were great -definitely try the fried artichokes - and service was very efficient and friendly.

Our reservation was at 10pm and we got there around 10:05pm. The waitress got our drink orders first and then came back 5 minutes later trying to rush our food order while we were still looking. We were still deciding on what to get and as we were looking at our menu our waitress keeps telling us “the kitchen will close soon” 4 times. I understand the kitchen is closing soon but that doesn’t help me what I want to eat. I was trying to ask about the foods but she was rushing me and basically ordered for my table. I don’t recommend going late because I felt pressured and ended up not really enjoying the food I got. The portion is small and very overpriced.

Awesome food, service, vibe, as always on a bright sunny day! All outdoor tables full & bustling w/ plexiglass separators, indoor tables very well-spaced & adhering to COVID-safe distances. Food delicious as always...love the meatballs, fresh asparagus salad, & tender grilled octopus! Efficient friendly service despite being so busy.
