Tarallucci e Vino East Village
Established in 2001, Tarallucci e Vino East Village was born from owner Luca Di Pietro’s desire to bring the time-honored tradition of Italian coffee and cuisine to New York City. Like all of our locations, this neighborhood hangout treats locals and visitors to excellent coffee, housemade pastries, fresh pastas and seasonal New York Green Market inspired plates. Tarallucci e Vino East Village’s warm atmosphere makes it the go-to spot for an early morning espresso, casual meet-ups over lunch or drinks, and cheerful weekend brunches. Open for breakfast, lunch, brunch and dinner.
Brought my out of town friends here for dinner and we all loved our meals. Our server was fantastic, personable and attentive, the bartender was friendly and welcoming. Not a bad thing to say abiutbthr place.
Delicious food, great drinks, calm ambiance and excellent service and attention to the customers!! The waiter and host (Roger and the other gentleman's name escapes me) were an amazing duon in their service. I would absolutely return because of the dinning experience.
Eggs were very good served with brioche but They ran out of oil croissant’s and desserts otherwise we enjoyed our meal
We made a reservation for restaurant week. The restaurant was small and cute. It filled up quickly around 7:30/8PM on a Friday evening. The bartender and the wait staff were nice. The menu looked appealing, but we ordered from the restaurant week menu. We ordered an Aperol Spritz Pitcher, it was delicious but low in alcohol content. The meal was okay. The pasta was delicious. The apps/dessert were okay. The restaurant was very cold, there were people coming in and out, not enough space for our jackets - that kept falling on the floor. Overall, an alight experienced. If I returned, it would be for a casual meal in the summertime.
Food was unpretentious and comforting yet not outdated and delicious! The butternut soufflé was so delicious it’s unfortunate it’s available only seasonally.
The pastries were very good! But the brunch was less than mediocre. $15 for two cold poached eggs, deli ham, and cold gummy polenta cakes- hardly worth it. Didn't eat half. The $3 almond croissant was heavenly however, I would have even paid a bit more. Stick to coffee, pastries, and conversation here.
The waitress was lovely and the wine was pretty good. My husband ordered the cacio pepe, which was pretty great. I ordered the broccoli rabe, sausage and orichette, which was sub-par to say the least. First, there was no visible sausage in the pasta (was it minced? hiding? pulsed into the weird green sauce?) I honestly think the chef just forgot to add it. The green sauce looked like melted play-doh, so that was a little off-putting. I 10000% ordered incorrectly, and would definitely give it another go, as they tend to have a consistent crowd.
Second time in this restaurant for dinner, and again a pleasant experience: good wine, great food, excellent service.
comfortable, beautiful place, both indoors and outdoors. great selection of brunch items to choose from. reasonable prices. food was ok--but should have been better. coffee (regular) tasted bitter. Avocado toast was fresh and beautiful looking but kind of bland.
We were delighted with our food except the shishito peppers should have been cooked 2 minutes longer so that they weren’t so crunchy. Our main entrees were terrific.
Wine was delicious, but would have preferred a happy hour discount in the dining area vs just the bar - even if it was nominal.
Very nice! Wonderful food, kind staff. Very pleasant and good for a late night ambient dinner
Only problem was being seated in the rear, my chair was constantly being bumped by clientele and staff going by. Better once I moved onto the corner of the banquette. Food was great and nice service.
I love this place!
A re-born place with creative chef and excellent service
Very nice staff & service. Nice ambiance for a casual dinner. I wished they could have offered a bit more entree’s & had interchange with some specials such as pasta with different sauces. My meal was very good though. I would recommend it!
A wonderfully authentic Italiano L’Osteria - serving family honored dishes like “Fiori di zucca” -delicious ricotta stuffed zucchini flowers - with modern taste treats. I love the open air dining and house wine on tap.
Great atmosphere. Comfortable space and great service. Bartender was awesome and offered great advice and helped us pick the perfect wine for our meal. Wait staff was very friendly and accommodating. Outside seating was perfect and the portions of our meal were just right. Great spot to catch up with friends over a casual drink and have a great meal!
Went to Taralucci for the second time. It’s right next to my apartment and nice we decided to sit outside. I was astonished by the prices for portions the size of the palm of my hand. Food was good, flavorful but there is no reason an Italian Resturant with 60+ other Italian restaurants within a mile radius should get away with prices like this at such a small portion. Unfortunately won’t be going back. Will be sticking to my other Italian restaurants on the block with massive portions.
Small, intimate, fantastic neighborhood restaurant in the East Village. Perfect sized portions (ravioli, pici al pomodoro, and milanese) with intense flavors that pleased everyone. Served piping hot
This is a great, quiet place with wonderful italian food and a good selectin of wine.
Very nice service. A wonderful restaurant for everyday dining
I had the ravioli with truffles. It was soooo delicious . So far, this is the best ravioli I had in NYC. However, the portion was just too small for the price that they charge .
Great food, great service. They held our reservation even though we were running 10-15 minutes late (we called to tell them we were on our way and to please hold our table). Pricy, but tasty. Loved LOVED the octopus dish. The best! So good I almost ordered another! Friendly and prompt service. A little loud for my taste, but fun atmosphere. Yes, I’d recommend. I’ll
Octopus meatballs and cacio e pepe really good
this restaurant seems old...the cappucino was good, not the quiche
The food and service was excellent. Cheeses are fresh and tasty, and the pasta dishes were full of flavor and made al dente. Highly recommended.
This is my second visit here this year, both times while in the city from out of town. Everyone I have taken there has absolutely loved it, and the atmosphere is superb. It is a cozy, local spot, where they aren't bothered if you want to linger over a bottle of wine. If you can go on a Wednesday for one of their traditional polenta dinners DO IT!!
Nice, casual spot for lunch. The menu is not big but the food was well-prepared and a very good value. The wine list is short, but good and varied for a small place, with prices that are not low, but not unconscionable.
We totally enjoyed the Wednesday polenta dinner special prix fixe. The portions were substantial and the quality outstanding. We hope that it will continue. For first time diners to this restaurant we were very impressed.
The food was just not good.
Enjoyed the grilled octopus, very tender. They over-hyped their "special dessert" for the evening, beignets layered with a little fruit, some chocolate sauce and a little something else. It was certainly overpriced and disappointing.
