.Tarallucci e Vino Union Square Ratings and Reviews
Met an old friend for brunch during Restaurant Week. Neither of us had ever been and we were both so pleasantly surprised! Delicious food, friendly staff and great ambience (busy but not overly so). The $29 brunch menu was terrific and had enough variety to suit our tastes.
Went for brunch with a friend and it was delicious. My only problem was that the pre fixed brunch menu was a little misleading. We were under the impression that the course came with dessert but it doesn’t. It wasn’t a big deal but it could have been clearer . At one point I think the waiter forgot about us but he was overall very nice .
I live in the neighborhood and had an awful experience. Very disappointing. I was having dinner with a friend whom just recovered from surgery and celebrating her recovery. We were not informed by the waiter that if one of us orders from the restaurant week menu the other must order same or enteee. I should have been informed prior as I was looking forward to octopus appetizer along with a salad and felt forced to order the scallops entree which was dry and unsatisfactory. I will reiterate how disappointed I am and will not return. Also, waitstaff should truly communicate more effectively.
We chose this restaurant because we wanted to sample authentic Italian cuisine. The ambiance is comfortable and not overdone. The staff was friendly and welcoming. Unfortunately, when I made the reservation, I didn't pay attention to the hours of operation. In the winter, the restaurant closes at 5:00pm. Our reservation was for 4:30. However our server, Brandon, was attentive, and we never felt rushed. What we were disappointed by was that we were only able to order from the brunch menu. This was not clearly stated on their website. However, we enjoyed the meal . My husband had the Polipo. He found it to be very tasty. I had the Spaghetti alla Pomodoro. I found the portion to be small, but tasty. I would recommend this for a quick bite.
Everything was quite good. The only negative was the music speakers were above our table and as the evening progressed, the volume increased and we were unable to get the management to comply with lowering the volume . Excellent go to authentic Italian with a creative chef. The sound system should be repositioned to not be such an annoyance.
We got a last minute reservation - and honestly, the fact that we had to wait isn't the real problem I had with this place. First our server and the bartender was awful. While we waited (more than an hour) for our table, the bartender was unbelievably rude to us. He glared at us and gave us one word answers. Before that, we waited 20 minutes for his attention. Then when our table was ready, he made a big deal about transferring the bottle to our table, even though we ASKED if we could transfer the bottle to our table when we ordered it. Two of us separately ordered the agnolotti but the server brought gnocchi. So while we waited for our correct order, our friend finished his food. Then our food came. None of us was too impressed with the food, but it was passable. The food was mediocre for the price and the number of incredible Italian places in the neighborhood (Union Square). There was no apology made for our food being served so late. We decided to split a glass of wine, so our friend could kill time while we finished our meal. They should have comped it. Instead they charged us for the gnocchi AND the agnolotti. When I caught the mistake, it took 15 minutes to take it off the bill.
We LOVED this place! We went to the Union Sq. Holiday Market and were looking for a place to dine nearby, and found this lovely restaurant by pure luck and were able to get squeezed in for a table.
The service from the gentleman who took care of us was wonderful. They have gluten-free substitutions for all their pastas, which meant I was in heaven! The food was absolutely delicious and the wine list was also very extensive and well-varied. We were disappointed because the first 2 bottles of wine we ordered were not actually available, but they hadn't updated the menu yet. The young lady who took over after our server went home was (as expected) not very attentive, otherwise we were most pleased with this restaurant in every way.
In a city full of great neighborhood restaurants, our meal was unremarkable at best. The meatball appetizer was flavorless. My pasta could have come out of a grocers refrigerator. The roast chicken was the only thing that stood out and that was likely because the other items were so bland.
I had a great dinner out with my girlfriend!
The food was excellent, the house made pasta was on spot, I had the squid ink spaghetti, which isn't something found everywhere, and it was delicious. The food is fresh and the service was fantastic, our server was attentive, but didn't hover, giving us space to talk and enjoy our dinner and our wine.
It goes in my list of favorites, and will be on tap for when I'm in that part of the city!
I have to say I was sadly disappointed in my recent meal at Tarallucci's. I have been coming here for years and have always enjoyed my meals with friends and clients.
This recent visit was disappointing from the beginning. My female colleague and I were passed up three times to be seated by the hostess for male customers waiting behind us in line. I was so shocked, I couldn't believe it. Then our waiter was less than happy to be there. When my guest asked if she could add chicken to her salad, the waiter said "no, that's not possible". My response... "would you please ask the kitchen, she is pregnant and would like to have a protein". He immediately returned and said they would. Then when asked if I could have a little extra tomato sauce for my extremely dry meatballs, it took him 15 minutes (for what I can only imagine is from a vat of sauce always warming) to bring me a few spoonfuls and then charged me as a side order.
I think the owners need to do a refresh on servers and overall dining experience and get back to great customer service. Not sure I'll be there to test it out, but it can only help.
We enjoyed our dinner @ Tarallucci e Vino but was it the best Italian food we've eaten in NYC? It was good. The appetizers were very good. My husband had the squid ink pasta with octopus, a bit on the salty side and not enough octopus. Mine was good, a duck Ragu wrapped in pasta. The pasta is made in house. Would we return ? Maybe... there are a lot of restaurants to try while in NYC. The bar scene is pretty busy.
