Italian
Named after a fictitious relative that every Italian family can relate to, Aunt Jake’s allows the diner to choose from one of our ten fresh pasta shapes to be paired with our 10 different house-made sauces. Following the triumph of our first location in Little Italy, Aunt Jake’s has now opened a new location on West 8th Street. While ‘Pasta with a Purpose’ is our brand’s motto. Housed in an intimate two-story townhouse, Aunt Jake’s makes you feel right at home with cozy banquets, warm wood accents and signature blue and white-tiled bar.

At Aunt Jake’s, the “pastabilities” are endless!

Nice surprise find! Super cute restaurant and delicious homemade pasta! We enjoyed our visit and will definitely be back! I would suggest always having a reservation as I saw them turn people away. Also, iced tea seems expensive at $4 per glass with no refills. I will be back but will enjoy a glass of wine instead next time!

Love this place! One of my fav Italian restaurants in NYC - the squid ink is amazing with their lamb ragu sauce. Honestly anything I've tried here is great!

We just happened to stumble upon this restaurant on OpenTable as we were looking for a place to brunch before we left town. We took a chance and we’re so glad we did. Everything was wonderful, the food had excellent flavor the service was incredible, the atmosphere clean and crisp, and one in our party had the burger and had to share it with everyone because it was that good. This definitely will go on the list of places to revisit.

We had an amazing dining experience. The chicken parm and shrimp scampi were outstanding. I’m from North Jersey and have eaten plenty of Italian food in my day. I truly believe that the chicken parm here may have been the best I’ve ever had. The pasta was extremely fresh and delicious.

Perfect place in the Village to bring a date, have a romantic meal, or meet up with friends.

This is my second time at Aunt Jakes and it did not disappoint. The salads and pastas couldn't be fresher, and the option to create ones own pasta dinner is very appealing.

Had a hankering for pasta - nothing fancy just solid pasta and Aunt Jake's delivered. While it was definitely noisy downstairs, we were given a table upstairs and it was much quieter (there was one large party but they left half way through). The service was a tad slow but very attentive when we did see the server; I think they were just a bit busy and /or shorthanded the night we were there. Overall, highly recommend if you're in the neighborhood and just want pasta.

Visiting NYC from Seattle, this was on my list for GF pasta. I made a reservation on OpenTable, the hostess was fun to talk to and engaging as well as the waiter. My friend and I ordered 4 cocktails total, 2 espressos & two gluten free pasta dishes. This was the best carbonara I've ever had.

Will go back again!

We had a large group (9). Waiter was attentive and friendly. Food was excellent. Only issue was figuring out what everyone was to pay. Would have been easier if we could have split the check by couples.
