Italian
Founded in 2015, we set out to replicate the idyllic, simplistic, cuisine we grew up to enjoy. However, we wanted to create Italian food for the next generation. The idea was to develop an Italian concept around the customer's choice on how to eat pasta compared to how the restaurant wanted you to eat it. With that in mind, Aunt Jakes' core mission is to bring high-quality fresh ingredients daily to craft our handmade pasta and sauces in a health-conscious manner. The customer can mix and match, sauce with shape, and create a custom dish of their own. Whats more, the customer can also choose whether they would like their food served individual or family-style.

It was super expensive, but I guess I understand...especially in this climate. Drinks were good, food was good, service was great. The waiter and food runners were all super nice. Also appreciated their Covid protocols.

The short rib was overcooked and under-salted. That's probably my fault for ordering a non-pasta dish! The mushroom risotto that came with with the short rib, on the other hand, was phenomenal. My date's chicken parm was both good and came as a suuuuper large portion. The wine was good and not grossly overpriced! We had a bottle of the malbec. Our server was great, but overworked - she was the only server on the night we went, and Aunt Jake's was much too busy to have just one server that night. Bummer about the short rib, but I'd go back.

Aunt Jake's was amazing! The staff was immensely amicable, prompt, and attentive to pretty much everything they could be. The food was to die for, and their wine selection is top notch. A little on the pricy side, but it's worth every single penny. Go here for your date 100%

The vibe of the Greenwich location was so trendy and cute. They had glass PPE separators to separate tables and they even matched the vibe. I had the cavatelli with Sunday sauce which was so delicious! Can't wait to go try out one of their other locations and have another amazing pasta and sauce combination!

This was my first time eat at Aunt Jakes in the Village, and I had a great time. I started with the beet salad, which was served with arugula, ricotta and pistachios. Absolutely delicious. I then had the sweet potato gnocchi (minus the pork because I'm vegetarian.) It was simply amazing. I finished with the tiramisu which was also fantastic. My server J was awesome - extremely fast, friendly and efficient. I can't wait to go back.

Great outdoor dining setup. Having 8th Street closed down gave some extra protection against traffic noise, and, we didn’t feel as crowded as we might have down in Little Italy. Service was perfect.

Excellent food, friendly service and reasonable price level. I had the chicken parm. with a side summer salad. It was DELICIOUS! It was extra special to have some of it saved for my lunch the next day! My other two dinner guests share the same feelings about your food, friendly service and price. Live has definitely changed for all... I recently had a serious fall and I am in a wheel chair. Your restaurant was very accommodating for a handicapped person. Thank You. I look forward to coming back and enjoying another delicious meal.

I like this place a lot and always find the prices reasonable, except for the wines by the glass, which I think are way overpriced, especially at lunch time. I believe there was nothing under $15. While sitting at the table we googled around to see how much those wines were going for by the bottle retail, and the mark up at AJ's was incredible. I have been here several times, but the fact that you can't get a decent glass of wine here for even $12 gives me pause whenever I think to book here.
