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.

The food and service are amazing. The prices are reasonable. Everything is freshly made in house including the pasta. I could not imagine a better meal.

The host/waiter was very customer obsessed and had a positive attitude the whole evening. The food was Amazing! I had the lemon chicken, best I ever had. My friends had the shrimp scampi, chicken parmigiana, and the lasagna. Their portions were huge, they all took some home and raved that the food was good. I randomly chose this place on open table and we found a gem. Will definitely return.

It was great! We went specifically to try their gluten-free pastas, but they were already out by 7 PM, so we had to go with the Risotto instead. Still great food, great service and fun atmosphere.

What a nice mid-week surprise. We just popped in because they were nearby and had a table and it's one of the best meals we've had in the area. It feels a half-step above casual, but not stuffy, very bright and open, super friendly staff.

The homemade pasta was excellent, the salmon was cooked and seasoned perfectly, and THE BREADSTICKS ARE THE BEST WE HAVE EVER HAD. We asked for more and our very nice waiter brought us a couple at the end of our meal. We didn't try the cocktails, but they're very custom to whatever you're in the mood for so we'll check it out next time.

New favorite restaurant. Check it out.

They were out of everything we ordered but didn’t tell us until 15 min after ordering, then didn’t offer a menu to look at again and as we asked if x y z from the menu was available, the server told us “um I think so” - then half the things weren’t (which again, we found out well after placing our order). Finally our food came and...it was incorrect. They never corrected it but instead brought missing items piecemeal (e.g. chicken for the CHICKEN KALE SALAD 20 min after the salad part, after reminding them twice). Nothing was comped. The pasta was pretty tasty but the salad was absolutely disgusting (straight up raw untrimmed u dressed kale with globs of Mayo that I guess was supposed to be Caesar dressing). Unreal experience - so bad we were laughing, but it sucked to pay full price for basically nothing.

Food was delicious but service was really slow. There was only one server for the whole main floor of the restaurant (about 7 tables). Main course arrived before appetizer dishes were cleared. Had to ask someone to send our server over so we could order another drink.

I understand COVID has impacted restaurant operations, but they just seemed short staffed.

The food and service was very good. I suggest people eat indoors. We chose outdoor seating forgetting that this is NYC and the streets are full of rodents. Seeing little ones running around wasn’t appealing. The waiter kindly offered to move our table, which we did. Don’t let this keep you away from Aunt Jakes. It is good value and good food.

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.
