This was our 2nd time at Pagani because we really enjoyed our first trip. The waiters are very nice though they didn't bring bread out until when we were served our entrees. I ordered the squid ink cavatelli which was actually only average though fresh. I enjoyed others' dishes though - the branzino was excellent. Their oxtail ravioli was not your typical ravioli whatsoever - it was very unique, flavorful, and full of meat. Wine selection is very good - my first time trying a lambrusco which is a sparkling red wine. Nice vibe on a Saturday night. Prices are consistent with the West Village.

From the stale tasteless bread to the flatbread that was wafer thin like potato chips to the paltry 3 scallops and tasteless bolognese sauce we were disappointed. Would not return.

I was here this past saturday night. I thought this place would be nice, quite and romantic, but it wasnt at all. It is a Very loud place, bunch of people standing at the bar which is right next to the entrance. Music was so loud I couldnt even understand what my friend was saying when she was sitting infront of me. Food is average, menu selection is mediocre. I would recommend someplace else if you want to have a quite dinner.

A bit annoyed when we were seated 45 minutes past our reservation, however the manager made up for the inconvenience by buying our group a round of drinks at the bar while we were waiting for our table. Appetizers were fabulous and most entrees did not disappoint -- I did have higher expectations for the gnocchi...

Service was a little slow that night, perhaps due to a private party. The waitress never came back to check on our food and took a while to flag her down to get the bill. Had to rely on bus boys to get us extra bread and more water. Food was good but pasta portions were on the smaller side. Veal meatballs for started were good.

Pagani was suggested from a friend who lives in the area and we are so thankful for the recommendation. I took my mother in law, aunt and 13 yo niece. Food was fantastic, had lemon linguine, seafood Raghu risotto, veal meatballs, spaghetti dish and salmon dish along with a nice bottle of red wine. Every one raved about the flavor and delivery of their meals. Ambiance was nice, got a little loud toward the end of our meal (730pm) but it was the holidays and seemed like a local spot so we were OK with the noise! We were all very impressed by Pagani and will be recommending friends and family who are in town to visit!

While the ambiance of the restaurant was very nice for our group of six, the food left us all a little underwhelmed. After waiting nearly 45 minutes after our appetizers had been cleared, our meals all arrived somewhat bland and overcooked. For an Italian restaurant, we were expecting good, fresh pasta, yet all six of our pasta dishes tasted as if they'd been sitting for quite some time. In fact, two people described their dishes as if they'd been sitting under a heat lamp. The restaurant was quite busy, and mistakes happen, but we were all really hoping for it to be great and it simply didn't deliver.

The atmosphere is very expansive and sultry. Our waiter was good. The food was excellent! Great oysters $2 each. Everyone's pasta was tasty, from the richer tagliatelle to the leaner and fresh tasting spinach corkscrew pasta with wild mushrooms. My friends enjoyed their manhattans and old fashioned and the wine selection was great. I would go back for date night or with friends. Plus, I appreciated that they swayed my girlfriend before we all showed up... who does that in NYC anymore!?

Pleasant surprise. Needed a restaurant near an off Broadway play in the village, and found this place. Food was excellent and so was service. Ambiance in front room is nice, as long as it doesn't get too crowded, and nice outdoor seating also for those who like that.

We made a reservation for 9:30PM and were made to wait 45 minutes to be seated - at 10:15PM ! We were offered no apology from the host or hostess, nor any kind of complimentary beverage or dessert to offset our ridiculously long wait - WITH a reservation! I would expect to wait 45 minutes at this kind of West Village spot on a Friday night if I rolled up without a reservation - but if they won't honour the reservations they have then what's the point of making one at all? Will never go to this place again.

Met here for family/friend get-together; we were a group of 8 seated towards the back of the restaurant. We could talk easily among our group with little noise around us. Everyone enjoyed their food; I had the pasta Bolognese (sauce was very good; pasta was excellent!). We shared several desserts and all were delicious. Service was excellent; our waiter was always around to help us but never intrusive. Would definitely recommend!

This was my second visit to Pagani and our group of 4 enjoyed the food. One disappointment was the watermelon salad because the watermelon was not sweet and was served warm. My cod main course was very tasty and my friends enjoyed their scallops. We also enjoyed our appetizer salads, both the white salad and the artichoke salad. My biggest complaint was that we told them we were going to the theater but even though the restaurant was not very busy, it took a long time to get our appetizers, and then to get our main courses. I had to ask the waiter 2 times if our main courses were on the way. However, overall we really liked the experience. The woman bartender was lovely and made great drinks which we enjoyed at the bar before we sat down. I would definitely return to Pagani.
