Gradisca is a soulful oasis in the heart of the West Village that makes you feel like you just stepped into Italy. An authentic trattoria with its roots in Bologna, Gradisca specializes in fresh pastas hand-crafted daily—New York named its tortellini one of the best dumplings in the city—along with classic northern Italian dishes made with the freshest local ingredients and given a contemporary twist. An Award-winning wine list features bottles from all twenty of Italy’s wine regions. Family owned and run, it’s the kind of classic, charming, warmly hospitable restaurant that everyone wishes was in their neighborhood.

It did not have the vegetable side the menu claimed it would have. My meatballs had to be cut with a steak knife they were so tough. I can cook better than whoever is back there. Server was not friendly. Worst meal in all my years of coming to New York.

This was the first time I was a little disappointed. My cavatelli was just ok and the service wasn’t up to par. Maybe just an off night. I’ll be back.

The service was lovely, I found the menu a bit limited and our food was not as good as we had hoped. I had the lasagna which was absolutely overbaked and overcooked and was a mushy mess. It was also quite flat and quite dark brown, another indication of having been over prepared.My friend’s pasta dish was tasty but it was a tiny portion for the price.
