One of our favorites for many years. The food is always fresh and excellent. I had crab cakes,husband had chicken marsala and a glass of prosecco. Absolutely delicious. Villa Mosconi is welcoming to everyone though it is a true local spot. In other words, the service ( we had Fernando as our waiter who was professional and attentive) is geared toward "We will see you again" instead of the tourist trap "One and done." We are so happy this restaurant is up and running. Prices are reasonable too and portions are huge.

I had dinner there last night - my last visit prior to last night was January 2020. It was so great to be back. I walked over and it was great to see that whole neighborhood alive again. Dinner was delicious, service was wonderful as usual. I can't wait for my next visit.

What a wonderful restaurant! From the moment we walked in and were greeted by the bartender all the way through the meal it was just fabulous. Carl, our server, was funny and charming and informative and helpful. The food was amazing: asparagus appetizer, shrimp dinner and three fantastic desserts. Just fantastic all around

Returning to the Villa was as expected: a pleasant experience with good, market-fresh food, welcoming staff, and an ambience that allows for conversation, without having to shout above the "buzz." We were so happy that they had reopened, and we intend to return again very soon.

A wonderful experience at Villa Mosconi, we had visited about 7 years ago when we were last in NYC traveling from Australia so it was a treat coming back. The food is impeccable. I had the sage butter tortelli and my boyfriend had the veal Parma, we also shared the prosciutto salami cheese board and tiramisu. My goodness, I wish this restaurant was i. Melbourne Australia, id be here every day!

Friendly staff, gorgeous traditional ambience. Comforting to see this restaurant still going strong with its sister restaurant just down the road. When we are back in NYC we shall see you again.

Best wishes to the lovely Angela, hope her hand gets better soon.

Spent the day enjoying the city and found this old school family owned spot. We gave it a try and we were not disappointed. The meat ravioli were almost as good as my grandma used to make 😉 We will definitely be returning.

I'd been wanting to try this place for supposedly really good "old world" Italian food. Better to go back to the old world! Everything seemed pre-prepared. Bread was like American white bread--not very fresh, kinda tasteless, served with packets of butter tabs. Appetizers and main course were o.k., but just o.k. Host and servers were pleasant, but I Can't think of one reason to return.

We have eaten there twice in the past month and enjoyed it both times. We usually ask for a table in the inside porch so we have lots of room and it's more quiet than inside the actual restaurant. The servers are always wonderful and the food delicious. Reasonable wine prices too.

While my wife and I don't live in the area (we're from Central PA!) , we do visit the City at least once a year. We have been coming to this restaurant for over 35 years. The food is excellent, the staff is very pleasant and the atmosphere is truly Italian. And even though we are not "regulars" we are welcomed back every time. The Veal "Saltimbocca" is my favorite, along with a baked artichoke heart!

So sad to report this. It was such a great place decades ago. I have no idea how the restaurant has a 4.8. I rely on Open Table ratings all the time and have never experienced such a discrepancy between experience and rating. Terrible food. The worst thing is the sole was so bad, the person who ordered it literally had two bites and the waiters just cleared the table at the end of the meal without even asking if there was a problem. This leads me to think the food is so uniformly bad that the waiters are used to this and don’t say anything because they would be taking food off the bill all the time.
