Loved the garden. It was a little too warm though.
The wine was fantastic and the waiter provided great insight.
This is the kind of place you can have a long meal at and feel relaxed.
It’s a little expensive. Definitely $$$.
10/10 recommend for brunch!! Had the best time with my friends on a sunday afternoon without being constantly hinted to leave (like other brunch restaurants in NYC!)
Food was very fresh and overall tasty. However the Margherita pizza was very bland. Service was impeccable
Great place. Pay with cash or get charged 4% extra.
We were a party of four. Each of us ordered a different pizza, and each one was delicious...particularly the crusts.
Great service, enjoyed the ambiance and delicious food.
This place is not what it once was. It’s become a millennial get together. If your going listening to that then this is for you.
Ordered the filet mignon. Unfortunately, the quality of the meat was inferior. Have been a regular customer since 2002. I think the place has failed to meet expectations recently. I hope it regains its strength.
Staff was exceptionally helpful in explaining the truly Italian menu items. The food was very fresh and very authentic. It made for a very pleasant evening of reintroducing us to Italian food. We shared a meat tray with an amazing puffy fried bread (maybe called gnocco), an exceptional garlic cheese nochi pasta and a sampler plate of desserts that knocked our socks off. It is worth the effort to get down to the lower east side for this little hidden gem.
Federico is one of the main reasons I keep coming back as he always takes care of us like we're family. The wait staff in general is on point.
My only recommendation would be to lower the brightness on those iPad menus... when the restaurant lights are dimmed, it's blinding, and takes away from the ambiance.
Great service. Amazing food. Pizza was delicious and antipasto perfect!
Took my Girlfriend for a dinner and I trusted the reviews so I gave it a shot! Really amazed with the atmosphere and the food! Also the menu! They have the coolest menu on earth! - Everything in one small iPad including pictures of each dish! We ordered pizza and pasta also the dessert! DELICIOUS! I would recommend this place to anyone !
Gnocco never fails to deliver on quality and service. The appetizers, pizzas, and wines we ordered were delicious and well priced. We sat in the back courtyard and had a very nice casual time without being rushed by the staff. Will definitely come back.
Very expensive for what it was.
An ok steak on a bed of lettuce for $23++?
Thanks for sharing your experience with us! Our Tagliata di Manzo is a Premium Grass Fed beef rib-eye steak with Parmigiano cheese on a bed of grape tomatoes, and baby arugula, as you could have seen in the description of your dish in our digital menu that also comes with a picture of the dish. We provide respect to our customers thought fresh and imported ingredients in each meal
Service was great. Our waitress was Natalia and we were very happy. They have a good wine list with reasonable prices. Food was fine.
The only thing is, we got an email from Opentable saying we did not honor our reservation, which we obviously had. Luckily the record is corrected. Other than this glitch we were quite happy.
My friend and I met for a catch up dinner and were craving Italian. I chose Gnocco based on their reviews and the food and ambience didn’t disappoint. This place is so cute, has a veranda party space in the back, and the most welcoming staff I have encountered in a while. It is the perfect place for a relaxing dinner with friends or family, a date, or even a solo date with tasty food. I would highly recommend the Insalata di Spinaci, Arancini, Gnocchietti al Pomodoro, Tagliatelle con Ragu e Piselli. Everything was so good!
Very cute backyard seating and quiet atmosphere
Wonderful setting with a really well-designed layout and atmosphere. Great food as well.
Fantastic, memorable. Highly recommend for dates and friends dinners. My friend and I got seated in this magical nook in the back covered garden, and the waitress recommended a social — truffle pasta — the whole experience was wonderful.
Hostess would wander around restaurant not allowing you to make eye contact. Waitress behaved and spoke inappropriatly and was rude to us. She caused the table next to us to storm off without paying. Gnocco used to be a nice place to eat casual Italian fare but there are too many other places to patron in the neighborhood to put up with really inadequate service. Don't bother.
Dear Maite, Thank you for bringing this to our attention. We are extremely sorry to hear about your experience. We aim to maintain the highest standards of service, but clearly that's not what happened last Saturday night, it was unacceptable. The waitress is been fired already because we were able to see the scene that night. We truly hope that you come back and give us another opportunity to reach your expectations! Gnocco
It was such a nice pleasant surprise. We loved the ambience and were surprised by how good all the food was. The service; all the servers could not have been nicer. We will def be back! Loved!!
Been going here for years, very nice crew of people- went this weekend- excellent service, excellent hostess, obviously the owner or manager was hands on and also very friendly. Got the octopus app that everyone raves about- did not enjoy in both taste and presentation. Great wine recommendation from waiter. Food was good. Food was not great or different, but reliable. We got the salmon, tagliatelle, and Gnocchi- it was good. Sat in garden, always nice because the front is usually too bright. The server is what made this place great- we were well taken care of for sure. If you are looking for AMAZING food, this isn't the place but this is comfort for sure.
Best East Village value for variety of eaters: gluten free options, seafood and meat, tasty appetizers/pastas and full entrees. Even tasty cocktails or non- alcoholic options! You’re sure to see dates, family dining or special groups here. (people on a pizza tour wore izzy hats!)
This place never disappoints. Service awesome as usual.
A Little piece of Italy in New York!! Very very good italian appreciate, and here you can eat REAL ITALIAN PASTA. Very good job guys!
My friend and I ate at Gnocco the other night. The food was wonderful. We had a beet salad that was more than enough for two people. The octopus carpaccio was delicious. My friend had the Spaghetti with shrimp, clams and basil pesto. She said it was to die for. I had the salmon special with shrimp. I could not even finish it. The dessert tasting menu is absolutely sinful. The only negative was the waitress. We had to ask for bread and ice numerous times before she remembered to bring them. Hopefully in the future the service will be better.
A true athentic neighborhood Italian experience. The food was fantastic! Best dinner we had our whole trip to NY. Octupus and the pizza are above par! The staff made us feel like family and we had a blast!
I just love this restaurant. The food is always solidly great and the service is friendly. On a recent visit, one of our dishes was subpar, not what I expect from the restaurant. I mentioned it, and they really made things right. I appreciated that they took pride in their service.
The food was very tasty. Meat, salads, pasta all looked very good. The dessert selection was not that appealing.
Great food and amazing service! Staff is super friendly and the food never disappoints
My friends and I enjoyed the ambiance of the place and we liked the burratta appetizer. The pizza was good but watery in the middle and not as crispy as we all would’ve liked. Prices were typical of NYC. There was a credit card fee.
Great food and attentive waitstaff. Would definitely recommend!
Had a great early dinner. The cold cuts were more than few and good in the Gnocco starter but saved some space to enjoy their pizza. Happy I visited, also really good service and nice spot in the covered garden.
The gnocchi were delicious, and the pizza was even better
Great! Good quality of food! Great service, nice environment!
I brought an Italian friend to Gnocco to ask his opinion of this restaurant. - We started with the restaurant's namesake 'gnocco' dish (fried gnocchi and a selection of excellent salamis and cured meats), which we shared with a dish of poerk, veal and beef meatballs in a rich tomato sauce. For main courses we had the tagliata (served rare, as requested), and the most tender, succulent 'maialino al latte' I have ever eaten. The meat fell off the bone at the touch of a fork. It was served with sauted spinach. - My Italian friend commented on the quality of the salamis and cured meats and also of his tagliata. - The Rosso da Montalcino wine was excellent value for a wine of its quality. I have been very impressed with the food during both of my visits to Gnocco.
Overpriced for below average food
Thank you for taking the time to review your experience with us. We are surprised you valued your experience with 2-star. You did not mention anything to your server during your time with us. Please let us know more about it, your feedback helps us get better! Looking forward to hear from you. Gnocco team
I used to love this restaurant, but not sure I will return now. The waiter seemed annoyed with us and my friend and I got the Branzino. It was mostly potatoes with a small piece of fish on top. Left kind of hungry. Also, we went there for the garden in back only to find that it has a roof on it. So, not really a garden. Restaurant has a nice vibe and maybe ok if you get the pizza, but not a fine dining experience.
Cute little place with great food! Reasonably priced too
This little place has potential. We went on Father’s Day and the place was not crowded. It took awhile before someone came over for drink orders. Food took a long time to come out and they forgot an order and brought out double of another order. Even got a drink wrong.
On the good side, the food was flavorful with normal sized portions.
