Italian
"All ends well with Tarallucci e Vino" is the famous Italian saying rooted in the tradition of resolving any matter over a glass of wine and tarallucci, the classic southern Italian cookie.

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.

Major "meh". In a city full of excellent Italian, Taralucci e Vino is missable.

Great food and drink. The only annoying thing was that they continuously would clear plates when some people were still eating - a pet peeve of mine.

Food was delicious and perfectly portioned! Waiter let me try a bunch of different wines and i ended up loving the sparkling red. Spaghetti was fresh and not too much. Perfect corner small spot with a cute bar. Sat inside but on the window so it was as if we were outside! Came here with my mom and were there for 2 1/2 hours. didnt feel rushed at all.

Don’t what the hype is about this restaurant and why they require a credit card booking. It is average at best. I ordered the spaghetti and while the actual pasta was good b/c it was homemade, the sauce overwhelmed the dish making it inedible. I told the waiter politely and he comp’d our coffees but would have preferred that he comp my meal. My SIL had the chicken and said it was just OK. There is a tendency to overpower food with sauces in the US and the restaurant exhibited that. Won’t be going back again.

Food was quite mediocre. Poached eggs were completely cooked through, truffle egg sandwich had no taste of truffle, broiche bread was dry and there was too much of it. Waiter forgot part of our order and when we asked him about it he didn't remember that we ordered anything at all, and ended up bring the wrong item. Kind of pricey, and extremely pricey for how mediocre the food was. Ambiance was nice though.

We are locals, had a wonderful dinner here in the renovated space. Roger the manager couldn’t have been more attentive. And the meatball antipasti, broccoli soufflé, pasta and our wine all great choices suggested by him.
We will definitely be back and love having a neighborhood little gem like this.

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.

Didn't realize this was such a small location - basically a cafe. Great ambiance, though, because the environment is quiet and casual. Good for a brunch date. Food was tasty but portions a little bit small.

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.

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.

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.
