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.

We enjoyed our salad, but the food was bland. When our salad was brought to the table we had to ask for plates, when they brought out pasta we had to ask them to clear our empty plates from our 1st course because there was no room on the table. I think they waitstaff was a bit overwhelmed.

After being seated outside at our request, we realized that we were directly in the sun and feeling too warm  The staff was very understanding and seated us indoors immediately.

I've always enjoyed my meals and the service at Aunt Jake's and this was another very satisfying dinner.

Great wait help, beautiful and comfortable restaurant . The mussels seemed smaller this year than in the past. It did get noisy. Portions of food were large. Too bad the pasta making at the bar was banned during COVID. I loved watching it.

Wahine, Thanks for taking the time to review Aunt Jake's Greenwich Village. The pandemic has completely transformed how restaurants operate these days - from food and labor shortages to implementing the strictest sanitary standards across the board. We are sorry if you were disappointed with the portion of the mussels and lack of pasta making, but hopefully your next experience with us will earn a 5 star review! Best, Aunt Jake's

Service was very pleasant, and we enjoyed our wine. The pesto was extraordinarily inauthentic — Almost as if they put the basil through a juicer, rather than a pestle. It had absolutely no consistency. Disappointing

Finally started going out to dinner. Was in the city to see my son and visit my old neighborhood. Just happened to see aunt Jakes on open table read the reviews, saw the food prices and decided to give it a try.

This restaurant is by far one of the best I have ever eaten in. The service was amazing the food more amazing not to say that the service wasn’t that amazing LOL.

The prices and value was off the charts.

Huge delicious portions great wine selection and I can’t wait to make my next reservation and bring other people there.

Italian food and pitchers of margaritas is a dream, but we had a reservation and waited 30+min for our table. We were seated upstairs with no other patrons and were forgotten. I ordered cavatelli with pesto and received tagliatelle with pesto. Too hungry to send it back. The staff were clearly overwhelmed but they were also aware of how long we patiently waited and did not offer anything to make up for it. Sadly, I am not sure when I'll be back.
