One of my favorite neighborhood restaurants at any time of day -- from a cappuccino, to soup and a salad, a glass of wine, or a delicious dinner. Everything is simple and well done. Not an ounce of pretension. Pounds of charm.

Excellent, well-prepared food in a warm, cozy atmosphere. The room is small but comfy and the waiter was friendly and efficient. This was our second time, and we'll go back for sure.

Limited menu; I expected more of a restaurant experience, but it was more of a coffee shop atmosphere, friendly staff

I received an email from OpenTable on 11/13/19 advertising "World Week of Italian Cuisine." Several branches of "Tarallucci e Vino" including the Upper West Side location were listed as participating, so I made a reservation for lunch at the UWS branch for 11/24/19. When I and my friends arrived that day, we were told that the UWS branch of the restaurant was NOT participating in the "World Week of Italian Cuisine." We were surprised and disappointed, since that was the reason we decided to go there. We ended up staying and eating there anyway, even though we didn't appreciate the "bait amd switch." Will probably not return there because of that.

A small and intimate venue, lovely service, and very tasty food attractively presented. The wine-pouring style is always a joy to watch. Good choice for when you want to comfortably chat with your dinner pals over excellent fare.

It started off badly. It was a very cold & windy night & I struggled to push (or pull) the door open. Both staff members at reception saw me through the glass, and both were clearly looking at me, but nobody had the instinct to help me out, no motion or gesture. Not very welcoming. The restaurant was practically empty so it’s not as if they were overrun. Beet salad was very limp, greens didn’t feel fresh, with 2 tiny pieces of cheese & a vinaigrette that didn’t feel like it contained any decent grade olive oil. All in all, an unjustifiably overpriced salad. Octopus dish just barely ok. Felt like the octopus had been grilled or seared earlier & reheated. This was an overpriced & unsatisfying meal. I have eaten at the union square location & remember it being far better.

Decent salads, tasteless artichoke soup, raw meatballs which the server got sarcastic about, although she did comp part of the check. Oh, and absurd prices. Yet another grain of sand in the food desert that is the UWS.

Extensive wine list - but make sure you specify exactly which bottle you want. Our server “upgraded” our Gavi to the black label Gavi. I’m sure it was an innocent mistake but made us all very uncomfortable. Food was tasty but very limited menu. It was ok but better choices in nyc

This is friendly, neighborhood restaurant with tasty Italian based dishes. It has small tables and a bar where you can eat too. It was very lively when we were there for lunch.

Food was good but there was absolutely no service. Maybe they were short staffed that night but unfortunately very poor dining experience due to lack of service.

Met a neighborhood friend for dinner and to catch up on life events - charming service, delicious food with sizable portions of fish (I had Branzino, my friend Salmon). I would have enjoyed a bit larger amount of accompanying veggies & eggplant purée. Caesar salad w/julienned kale terrific. Lemon tart delightful.

Pre Delacorte in Central Park, necessitated finding a restaurant close to the park. As I have been to two other Vino... I made the reservation and was not disappointed. As with the others, the hostess and server were most accommodating and the food was outstanding. We shared the burrata appetizer and each had the scallops. Both were excellent. But my preference is still for their fantastic pastas. Next time. Friendly atmosphere in a locals restaurant .

Food was good- not amazing. Was a little expensive for what it was but overall nice. Cheese plate was great! Salmon was average. Bob salad very nice. Smaller place then I expected. Very open like a bistro. Desserts not worth mentioning. Would go back

More like a diner with $21 glasses of Barolo wine! Tables are small with no tablecloths at prices more in keeping with more upscale restaurants. The chicken had been previously cooked and tasted over cooked and dry. The accompanying fingerlings were over cooked also. Steak was pale and wet on the outside. Not horrible, but not worth the money.

This is small bar, dine in and on sidewalk which determines noise level etc. Food was well prepared among our group, limited wine but good neighborhood experience.

I found this restaurant on Open Table and the reviews were very good. We had reservations for 5pm and got there a little early. We were greeted and seated immediately. I am gluten free and the waiter knew the menu and helped me out. We had two appetizers, two meals, one dessert, and three glasses of wine. I thought the prices were fair for what we got. My wife had the meatball appetizer and I had the octopus. We both enjoyed our dish. She had a pasta dish and I had the risotto. We were both pleased with our meals.

It was nice and quiet while we were there but it wasn’t full.

I would go back and would recommend it others.
