They are a good mix of upscale and comfortable. Very low key inside but you get good food and wine. Check it out if you're in the area

Matt is attentive, funny, knowledgeable about restaurant and menu. He was a delight and enhanced our brunch experience. He clearly enjoys his work, or he is a great actor.

Would visit the restaurant again just to sit at Matt’s table. Of course, the food was excellent.

When I arrived, and checked in with my reservation, I was told they didn’t have a table for us - despite the fact that we had a reservation.
The brunch they had was a good value - but the waitress charged us the restaurant week price instead of the price advertised on their menu. Not sure if this was a careless mistake or if the restaurant figured the prices were comparable enough that people wouldn’t notice/care.
Also - there was a $7 dollar upcharge for a certain entree in the category we were told we could order ANYTHING from with that deal - that the waitress DID NOT tell anyone about until the bill came.
The food was great - but all around, felt like the restaurant was just trying to get as much money out of us as possible.

Took 30 minutes for the *host to take out order. Our server was a little swamped with a large table, but the restaurant can’t seat more than 50; so seemed a little odd that it was such a struggle. She was pleasant and professional. After the order snafu, food was great. I’d go back but hope for a different server.

This was the most unprofessional and terrible display of service I have ever seen at a restaurant, and ended in them losing our credit card and refusing to offer us anything for the terrible experience... I showed up at 8:40 for my 8:45 reservation and was told “2 minutes” for our table and we ended up being seated at 9:15. Understandable, sometimes restaurants are busy we didn't complain about it.

It was a prefix menu and one of the people eating with me is a vegetarian and ordered bruschetta which was described as “daily market bruschetta” on menu. When it came it had only cheese and prosciutto... he asked if he could get something else because he was vegetarian and all they offered him was mixed greens and balsamic dressing.

After eating our entrees, we were sitting waiting for dessert for over 15 minutes and then they bring us the check and describe how we need to leave because the restaurant was closing early that day... They failed to mention this when they sat us down 30 minutes after our reservation time. They tried to get us to leave the restaurant after 40 minutes of being seated when we hadn't gotten the dessert that we already paid for through the prefix menu! Still hadn't been offered anything for the clearly frustrating experience.

We didn’t make a fuss about anything and then they bring back the check and one of our cards isn’t in there. Not only were they unapologetic, they immediately blame us for losing the card or perhaps "putting it in our pockets without remembering." They started looking around the restaurant forever and can’t find anything. STILL they ask us to kindly pay the check and leave without offering any kind of compensation for this horrendous experience.

When we were leaving the restaurant, I said to manager on duty (Matt), this is absolutely unacceptable and ridiculous; if we were 40 years old we wouldn’t have paid a dime for this meal. He responds with “you’re right” but claims he doesn't have the authority to help us.

We eat here several times a month for business lunches. Always good food and service. Had the soup of the day which was Asparagus & Zucchini, it was too watery not enough texture to the soup. Farro salad with chicken is excellent. Finish up with great coffee.

Went for Sunday brunch. Pasta portions were pretty small but maybe that was because it was brunch. Farro, arugula, butternut squash, feta salad was awesome. Drink prices were reasonable.

We discovered this restaurant by accident, when we tried to go to Rolf's last year for a holiday meal. We are SO happy we did and we've been back several times. Tarallucci is classy yet relaxed, with lovely ambiance and delicious food. This time my mom was visiting NYC for the first time in decades and we wanted to bring her someplace special. In my reservation notes, I'd requested a dry bottle of rosé around a certain pricepoint, and when we walked in our server had it ready. Not only was the food stupendous, they always have a great gluten-free selection for me and it didn't disappoint this time round. To top everything off, our server was a gem and made the meal so memorable and even more special.

Nice neighborhood feel for a restaurant just off Fifth Avenue. Quiet when we arrived fairly early around 6:00, but got a lot noisier as it filled up. The food was interesting: my chicken was spiced in an unusual way, fairly hot but not over the top. Way too many fingerling potatoes on the plate. Simple menu. Tiny bathroom. Waiter was very nice and friendly, though we had to wait quite a while for the check.

We came here for the fixed price brunch menu, but they informed us (after we had ordered the beverages) that they had no pastry items. Then, when the check came, they charged us for the fixed price anyway.

Tarallucci e Vino is a fantastic restaurant. I’m Italian and can testify the food is ‘real’ with excellent produces and balanced, well-executed dishes. Cornetti and bomboloni are above expectations. Additionally, the service is excellent and very friendly, especially when we go there with our two toddlers. Great spot for brunch with family or lunch/dinner with friends.

Booked this for a business meeting. One of our meals came much much later than the others. The whole group waited for that last entree to come which turns out they had forgotten to make. Manager refused to comp the meal, awkward after the waiter had said he would ask the manager. Very embarrassing experience as I had booked this for my boss and clients.

The pasta dishes are always very fresh. The drinks are on the high end to have with lunch. The service is very slow so you will need more than an hour which makes it difficult to go for lunch.
