Tarallucci e Vino Union Square Ratings and Reviews
A fairly good place featuring rustic décor and tables with lots of young adults. Food OK, nothing outstanding, and service wise our waiter seemed distracted. Given the location, it was ordinary fare, but the ambience was very nice and energetic for a Sunday brunch. There are lots of better places in this neighborhood.
Since it was my birthday my wife and son left the restaurant choice up to me . The friendly staff welcomed us and led us ( as requested) to a quiet corner table . Our well spoken and enthusiastic waiter answered all our questions with accuracy and enthusiasm . The beverages and miniscule bread basket came quickly.
Here is where the restaurant disappointed us as the menu was very small in size and selection . The limited amount of appetizers , first course and entrees were disappointing and there are no daily specials . It seemed as if it came down t"o this or that ". The food was very well presented and tasty but somehow the lack of choices and overall service were good but did not measure up to my expectations for a memorable event .
Since when do you go to an Italian restaurant and have trouble finding pasta on the menu? Even for New York, everything was at least 30% higher than market rates. There are so many awesome Italian restaurants in this area, this drops to the bottom of my list.
There were 4 of us & my friends' adult son called ahead about the noise level as his father was concerned from past visits. We did get seated at a relatively quiet table, but the acoustics & table size were such that it was difficult for 4 people to hear each other & for one of us to hear our server. Moreover, we could hear the people around us enough it was mentioned by 2 people & therefore a distraction. I would recommend this restaurant if you & all of your guests have no hearing issues. The management could & did lower the volume of music. As for the food, 3 of the 4 secondi plates were very good. My guests had even said the food is fine in advance.
We had a leisurely meeting of family members (3) who do not see each other regularly. The waitress was sincere, friendly, informative, patient and very paced to our needs. We went through a course of wine and drinks , antipasti, and entrees in a wonderfully sequenced tempo that allowed us to converse, enjoy, and share the experience as well as the food. I have rarely spent a more enjoyable meal integrated with a social occasion. My sister made a special trip to the waitress just to complement her for a job so well executed.
Had a fabulous meal at the restaurant on 18th St. Worth the somewhat high prices for a special occasion. The Pomodoro starter was fresh and delicious and the Gnudi was amazing. My fellow diners tried the Polipo which was also fresh and filling and I was reliably informed that the Lamb special was the best they'd tasted in the city. The ambience is great for a romantic dinner with low lighting and real rustic Italian feel. Excellent service too - although it was fairly quiet for a Friday evening. Will definitely go back to try the rest of the fantastic looking menu.
I had a great time at Tarallucci -- service was excellent, ambiance was perfect, and the wine selection was spot on. I didn't order food, but the menu options were tantalizing, and everything I saw being served looked phenomenal. Thanks for a wonderful evening -- I look forward to returning soon!
Met a friend here for dinner after work one night. Our waiter was very nice and willing to share his opinion on different dishes/wines when we were unsure what to order. Everything tasted better than we could have expected. A true gem if you're craving Italian cuisine!
My family and I are Italian, and every once in a while we like to eat some Italian food. We were tired of always going to Eataly, and the other places we so often visit in New York City, so we decided to try Tarallucci E Vino. What a great choice. We went on Father's Day this year. It is a smaller, quiet restaurant at lunch time. It has a great brunch menu, as well as s regular lunch menu. You can always tell the authenticity of an Italian place by the number of Italians eating there, and I didn't hear a word of English! I highly suggest giving this place a shot. I'll write more once I have dinner here. I have suggested this place to all my Italian friends, and they've all given it 5 stars as well.
I had brunch at Tarallucci E Vino last Sat (6/16/2013). We were sitting at the back, it was a bit hot and humid. Service was good, but the food was just not what I expected. I ordered the prix brunch set. I just saw a pool of oil in my toast alla Francese dish. The toast was very geasy and deep fried.
The food is amazing. I've been here twice and each time I loved everything I ordered. The 2nd time I was there my friend ordered a very minor modification (extra something) on her appetizer and the waitress ok'd it. When it arrived the modification was not included and when it was mentioned, the waitress didn't offer to correct it or bring it on the side. A great place would have offered something. The waitress made it seem like it was no big deal and meanwhile my friend looked very disappointed. And for the prices, they should get it right. But otherwise the service was pretty good. We constantly got refills on water and the staff was very helpful with wine selection and seating.
I celebrated my birthday with a friend and it was a special evening indeed. The hostess moved us to a much quieter spot in the front and then informed us that everything on the menu had changed since t a new chef had arrived two week prior. At first disappointed we proceeded to order two appetizers and split the seas scallop entree. The burrata and beet salad was fantastic and thoroughly enjoyed the eggplant with cherry tomatoes. The scallops were plump and tasty with a lemon and green garlic flavor. We followed it with a simple but very fresh mesclun salad and an amazing hazelnut semifreddo with a berry sorbet YUM! One thing I would insist on is they bring back the octopus and potato antipasti which is now only available at lunch.
This used to be one of our favorite places for our family of 4 for brunch every weekend, until today. We had a small thing that we mentioned to our terrific waiter. The manager handled it really poorly and in such an off-putting manner, we'll never be back. For what that place costs, you'd think they'd give you a lot less attitude when it comes to a $3 item on a $90 bill. The waiters are really nice, the "poor" mark is specifically for the manager.
Tarallucci e Vino is one of those rare places that smells like Italy as soon as you walk in. The flavor and quality of the food and the excellence of the coffee beverages are excellent which is why I have been a regular at both the 18th and 10th street locations since the eary 2000's. just be mindful of the excessive noise levels: this is not a place for quiet conversation.
The sandwich I had was made in bread that was so dry I nearly choked, stuffed with an omelet (sorry, "frittata") that was flat and overcooked. Espresso drinks are weak and not up to the standards we've grown used to in nyc in recent years. Sorry to see what happened to this former neighborhood gem after its expansion.
I like this place for lunch and find the food to be predictably good and a great value. Tried it for dinner the other night was was very disappointed. It's like a completely different place. The food was just... OK. Not terrible but not mind-blowing. It didn't help that they were out of many menu items so our options were very limited. The major downfall of our evening was the obvious and obnoxious upselling of the most expensive item on the menu- the $40 market fish. It did sound good but you're either in the mood for it or you aren't. And asking us if we want refills on our wine when our glasses are still half full.
had an amazinggg octopus salad, it was simple fresh and delicious. my friend had some kind of short rib gnocchi and she was very pleased with that as well. also they have a great coffee selection, really gives you the feeling youre in a italian cafe. i did have one bad experience once with a pasta dish, cant remember what it was called but it was a light green color, just terrible, but this experience more than made up for it!
It was a quite rainy eveing and we we well attended. Unfortunately my heart was set on choices that I selected from the WEB MENU which when in the resturant it was not available. Hope they update the web.....because once I did choose something from the menu that was available it was amazing! Unfortunately my choices were limited due to my personal palate and nutritional needs.
