Tarallucci e Vino Union Square Ratings and Reviews
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.
NYC Restaurant Week is a great chance to try out new spots. When I saw the menu, I thought it looked great and we needed a place to go for date night. The venue was great and very accommodating. I ended up making my reservation time but my husband was about 20 minutes late. I know in some places they don't seat you until your whole party is there but they did with me, and I was very grateful for that. I was able to enjoy a glass of wine and an appetizer without sitting there and stewing, and the waitress was very nice. She came over to us a few times to check on me and then later us, never making feel us rushed. We would definitely come back.
I'm a big fan of Tarallucci e Vino. The service and food are consistently excellent and the noise level is just enough so I don't feel like I'm disturbing anyone, which is why it's become my preferred breakfast meeting location, and sometimes, just a quick escape from the stress of the day.
Everything was top notch here! The waiter (Matt) was incredible, warm, informative & we even let him order for our table (he didn't disappoint either!) the good was impeccable & just the right sized portions. I would come back time & time again! Thank you so much for having us!
I knew Tarallucci e Vino Union Square was great for lunch and it was just as good if not better for dinner; while lunch there is a real treat, the dinner menu is really terrific. We'd just abandoned the Pavilion restaurant nearby because of 1) their not having a table ready for over an half an hour after our OpenTable rezzie, 2) the service was beyond poor; the staff couldn't be more inattentive or artificial, 3) the food we saw on other tables was what I call "wannabe entrees", you can get better quality, more diverse presentation in a more interesting menu at the same price elsewhere, ie Gramercy Tavern, Union Sq Cafe et al. You're basically paying for al fresco dinning facing a Barnes & Noble, and not good service or good food -- it really is misleading that although the Pavilion is "in" the park, you're not really in the park, as you're facing away from the park looking at concrete and big box stores. So when we landed at Tarallucci e Vino, we were warmly greeted, I mean, the entire staff was fantastic, from the host, to the wait staff, to the bus people, to the bartender -- I felt as though we'd been transported to a restaurant in Italy, that not only served authentic food but also authentic people! And the food! Endless baskets of a variety of fresh baked breads, enormous tasty salads, perfectly made and portioned pastas-- between the five of us, it seemed as though we'd ordered everything and EVERYTHING was delicious -- I can't wait to return. Truly a hidden gem in the hustle-bustle of Union Square.
This restaurant is excellent in all respects. The food is scrumptious and everything is prepared perfectly. The wait staff is knowledgeable both in wine pairings and with the meal preparation and is very helpful in providing advice in both areas. Well worth a visit.
