Great place! Great food and ambiance service was ok but could be more attentive.

Be aware they ask for the Covid 19 recovery fee. I think business should warn their guest of it as not all restaurants are applying this I am still confused on why some are and others aren’t...

Was on the fence about going here, but I have to say it was a 10/10 experience. I highly recommend the Rigatoni alla Vodka — it rivals Carbones (possibly better). Our server was sweet, knowledgeable and attentive. I’ll be back!

Run don't walk to Peasant. It is as authentically Italian as you can get. The food and staff are the stars, and Chef Forgione leads his restaurant as a family. If indoor dining still feels risky the tables are spaced more than 6ft with plexiglass guards. Peasant is still a feather in the NYC dining scene's cap.

The pandemic has taken its toll. Fewer options, favored preparations off the menu. No longer a “go-to” choice for us.

Peasant was always a favorite pre-pandemic, but I am mind blown in how they've come back. We had a great dinner Friday night. The atmosphere was perfect, I had missed that visible fire oven in the back. The server perfectly spread out our 4 courses, each as delicious as the last. He pointed us in the right direction of terms of our food order and the fantastic wine. Look forward to returning soon!

We used to love peasant but this time the food was not good. The burrata had no taste. The pizza was thick crust and tasted like dominos or other delivery pizza (definitely not wood oven pizza) and the pasta was overcooked.

Margarita pizza was my favorite in NYC! Bolognese was delicious, not heavy on the tomato sauce but a very savory and cozy dish. Service was very knowledgeable and friendly
