Fabulous food. Most dishes really quite exceptional - but especially the pasta. Beautiful range of starters too!

Growing up in an Italian household makes me regret going to most Italian restaurants. They usually fall well short. Happily, that is not the case with Petrarca Cucina e Vino in TriBeCa NYC. The food was fantastic! The pasta is perfectly cooked and the Orecchiette with broccoli and sausage should not be missed. The staff and the owner are very friendly and inviting. This place is truly a gem in NYC. Petrarca has become my "go to" place for outstanding Italian food in NYC. I highly recommend it!!!

I think they can work a bit on the outdoor seating situation now that it's going to be long term. They can do better with design.
Food was really good. We had calamari and parmigiana as appetizer. Both great: squids were very soft and lightly fried, parmigiana was faithful to its original recipe.
As main course we had carbonara spaghetti and orecchiette with broccoli and sausage. The latter was close to perfection, on the carbonara I would recommend to put less onion because it risks covering the taste of guanciale. Egg was perfectly mixed, though, which is hard.
Service was caring and very appreciated.
Overall I recommend the place as there is a genuine Italian touch, service is good. When you could dine inside ambience was cool too, I think they can do better on the outdoors.

Petrarca is one of our favorite Italian restaurants in TriBeCa. Fresh pastas and great wine list. I pray it will be able to stay open throughout this pandemic.

I was very disappointed. I expected more. The appetizers were fine (cheese plate , calamari, etc). My main was incredibly average and I barely finished it. The wine was warm, but the quality was good.

Food was great aside from the salmon with balsamic (it was very fishy and the balsamic was a little burnt).

Unfortunately this time they didn’t even have a lot of things in the menu available, usually the salmon is wonderful but this time it was not fresh and it would be nice if they explain the octopus salad is actually a potato salad.
It is a shame as this was one of our favorite restaurants.

Waiters are attentive but still get things mixed up. 3 of our4 dishes (all meaty) were just fine. The spaghetti with minced turkey balls in tomato sauce had no taste at all. Given the prices should do able to do far better.

Petrarca is an old favorite, and so it was clearly the natural spot to celebrate our anniversary. The staff, from the manager to the servers, were (as always) incredibly friendly and helpful — and the food was as outstanding as ever. I’m very partial to their fettuccine with the lamb ragu (a frequent entry on their specials), and the stuffed chicken was apparently fantastic also. The quality of the wine (a Grüner and a Primativo, in our case) is alone worth the trip. is This remains not just a neighborhood gem, but a city-wide gem.

We had an early dinner for four, which was wise because it got quite loud as the evening went on.
I enjoyed the lamb ragu with pasta and it was very tasty; my husband enjoyed his spagetti carbonara. Our friends liked the chicken and the lasagna. We shared a tasty appetizer of calamari. Our portions were large and we took the pastas home for lunch the next day! The restaurant is lovely and charming and we'd return happily.

We had a lovely meal at this restaurant after getting some documents at the courthouse. We showed up a few minutes before they were officially opened and we were welcomed warmly in.

I have a few allergies and found a great dish I could eat! Very happy about that. The scramble with zucchini and onions was perfectly paired with potatoes and a salad! It was fresh and yummy! My dining companion had a broth with tortellini in it followed by a pasta with Bolognese which he thoroughly enjoyed. There was a good beer for companion and I have a lovely tea.

The service was lovely the wait staff was exuberant and helpful. I found the service very warm and friendly. I'd highly recommend this spot for an array of meals with an array of people.
