Tarallucci e Vino Union Square Ratings and Reviews
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.
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.
