Went with my kids for dinner, everyone loved it. Sangria is delicious and staff is incredibly cool (there were only two guys working the floor and it was very busy but they were super friendly and attentive). I would definitely go back!
This restaurant is a mess. Waiter was rude snd food was cold ! The other locations are amazing and I’ve had good experiences but this one sucks

Jason, Thanks for the lovely 5 star review of Aunt Jake's Little Italy! We hope you got to enjoy some new menu items for fall/winter. We look forward to hosting you soon. Best, Michelle
Service was very poor, our waiter was no where to be seen half the night. We sat outside but never saw him and couldn’t get the drinks we needed. Food was very good but service was definitely lacking.
Excellent food in a beautiful and fun environment.
ChelseaW, Thanks for taking the time to review Aunt Jake's Little Italy! You can't beat fresh handmade pasta, served in a lovely environment. We look forward to hosting you again soon. Best, Michelle
The restaurant is quite nice. The pasta excellent. But Little Italy needs to do something to renew its uniqueness.
Service was not handled properly. Meals took forever and then came out incorrectly.
Thank you for sharing your feedback. In the midst of the labor crisis directly impacting our industry, we are attempting to hire and train new staff members. On the night you dined, we had several new cooks in the kitchen, and unfortunately they are getting up to speed on how our systems and techniques work. We are so so sorry that this delayed your food. We have since smoothed things over with our excellent new Chef, and we would love to have you back when you're ready. Thanks, Aunt Jake's
Really amazing pasta - if you haven’t had homemade pasta in a while, you’re in for a treat. This pasta is sooo good. I had the cavatelli with carbonara sauce and loved every bite.
Big portions, great value.
Thanks so much for the 5 star review of Aunt Jake's Little Italy! Our pasta is made fresh daily, and you can't go wrong with any shape and sauce combo. We appreciate the kind words and hope to host you again soon! Best, Aunt Jake's
This restaurant did not ask for proof of vaccination as dictated by NYC law.
This is unacceptable and will be addressed with management immediately. Thank you for bringing this to our attention.
Great ! But I think I forgot my birthday card at the table. Did you save it ? Anyway you could send it to me ?
WilliamM, Thanks for the review of Aunt Jake's! I'll check on the status of your card, my apologies for the delay! Best, Aunt Jake's
Choose your own fresh pasta and your own sauce. Delicious and simple, like the best Italian food.
SwaysWaves, Our concept is simple and fun, and it allows each guest to be creative with their dish! Be sure to try the same concept with our bar program. We hope to host you again soon. Best, Aunt Jake's
Looks great but has terrible service!
food took literally an hour then it turned out to be lost.
We were rushed to put the order and then pretty much we didn't hear back.
I had been here before and was excited to return but I unfortunately felt like it was a completely different restaurant. The service was terrible, taking 30 mins before we even saw a server. Upon asking to see a server he was incredibly rude and quite literally yanked our menus out of our hands. He then proceeded to get our drink and food orders wrong. After waiting for 45 mins after ordering our appetizer finally arrived and then waited another 30 minutes for our entrees. We then had to pin down an employee for water and the check. The food was good but the restaurant itself was very poorly run.
Good food waiter had snippy attitude when i asked for a plate. charged me $6 for ONE meatball.
The service was distracted and inattentive. They forgot our order and we waited 2 hours for two plates of pasta. We were also charged for someone else's (more expensive) order. The food was bland and undercooked, and it seemed rushed. It was disappointing.
Grace, We apologize for your experience at Aunt Jake's. That was the first night of San Gennaro Festival and it was a little chaotic. Servers unfortunately make mistakes sometimes, but we are glad that you noticed the error and it was amended. Should you choose to dine with us in the future, I can guarantee a better overall experience. Best, Aunt Jake's
Lovely evening out with our daughter before moving her into NYU, thank you!

Pasta had so much sauce and did not taste right. Not a good meal at all.
While we are glad you enjoyed the ambiance, we are sorry you did not enjoy the food. Were you able to speak to a server and try to remedy the issue with the food? Our sincere apologies if we did not live up to your expectations. We are always striving to improve, so we do value your feedback. Thanks Aunt Jake's
Nice interior with friendly service! I arrived early for my reservation and they were able to seat me with a glass of wine while I waited. Food was good with well sized portions.
EmilyL, Thanks for the 4 star review of Aunt Jake's Little Italy! Our massive venue is still perfect for social distancing while waiting to enjoy a delicious meal, paired with wonderful wine too! Hope to host you again soon. Best, Aunt Jake's
Expensive for what is it. Not worth it. Mushroom pastas didn’t taste good I had to add salt (not a good sign). My friends pastas were tasteless. Overall good service
MargauxT., Thank you for the feedback regarding Aunt Jake's Little Italy. Since the pandemic, prices have unfortunately been raised ever so slightly, however our generous portions are enough for leftovers and sharing! If you found the sauce to be underseasoned we will definitely share this with the kitchen. It's better to have to add salt then have something too salty though! Thanks, Aunt Jake's
Our server only came over to take our orders and didn't really check up on us. When it came time for the bill, we waited roughly 20 minutes before we got the attention of someone else to help us.
Corenelius, In the post pandemic world, staffing is now the hardest issue we face. We are working hard to train the right people at our establishment, but sometimes that just requires patience all across the board. We are terribly sorry if this effected your experience with us, but hope that you will still choose to dine with us in the future! Best, Aunt Jake's
Excellent food and great new atmosphere .

Kait, Thanks for the 5 star review of Aunt Jake's Little Italy! All of our staff members are friendly and helpful, and we were glad they were able to assist you! We look forward to hosting you again in the future. Best, Aunt Jake's
The most amazing mussels, pasta and bread! They seemed low on staff but the service did not lack, our waitress was attentive and the atmosphere was great even for a rainy evening. Definitely recommend eating at this delicious restaurant.
JulieW, We great appreciate the 5 star review of Aunt Jake's Little Italy! Staffing has been exceptionally challenging in this post-pandemic world, but we greatly appreciate your patience with us as we seek to improve this area. We hope to see you again in the future! Best, Aunt Jake's
the service was pretty bad. they dropped off the food and never came back. had to get up and go find someone to pay. the carbonara was a but bland. the chicken parm was good
MatthewW, Our apologies for the poor service. Staffing has become a major post pandemic issue, and we are putting all measures in place to find qualified employees - however this can be time consuming. We hope you consider trying us again in the future! Best, Aunt Jake's
Everything was perfect! We chose to sit inside and the restaurant is beautifully decorated. Our server was extremely knowledgeable of the menu and made excellent recommendations for our meal. We both chose pasta…ravioli with white cream sauce and tagliatelle with Sunday sauce. Enjoyed an aperitif to complete the meal. Our next trip back to NY we will be coming back again!!
Buckeye, Thanks for the amazing 5 star review of Aunt Jake's! We offer the best food and service in all of Little Italy, and we are glad you agree. Looking forward to hosting you again soon. Best, Aunt Jake's

Everything from the taste and portion size of the food, to the service, to super clean bathrooms, to the overall vibe of the restaurant makes Aunt Jake’s an easy choice for dinner.

Came in just at opening time for brunch. Pasta was good, servings were huge and we were the only ones in the restaurant. Waitstaff was nice and accommodating despite not being fully prepared for service. Would go back for dinner.
Thanks for the 5 star review of Aunt Jake's Little Italy! Our portions are large enough to either share, or take home for leftovers. We look forward to hosting you again for dinner soon! Best, Aunt Jake's
Had dinner here last night, so disappointed….poor servers were ran off their feet doing everything, no host or manager on site the entire time…
We needed several things but went without as everyone was too busy to ask.
How can you run a busy restaurant with no one at the front door or no manager?
Outdoor street dining table was small for 3 big men ranging from 5'10 to 6'4
Enjoyed the food and drinks, service staff was very nice and came over constantly to make sure are drinks are refreshed. Very good experience
Such a nice gem in Little Italy! Food was great, portions were big! I loved the vibe! Will definitely be back
Thanks for the lovely review of Aunt Jake's Little Italy! We hope to host you again soon. Best, Aunt Jake's
