This neighborhood gem welcomes you like family with attentive service and delicious food in a cozy setting. Love the hose-made pasta and other Italian classics. Well-priced wines are a welcome addition. Be sure to order an Italian dessert!

Surprised that this restaurant has been around this long because in my opinion, the food is tasteless and not much better than eating Italian at a Greek diner! Thought it was gonna be excellent based on what we had read. The service was slow but we're used to that with covid issues and all. We both ordered 2 different veal dishes...bland, no spices, small. Watery tomato sauce..not much different than bottled sauce. The appetizer salad was not full on the plate. Same with the spaghetti side dish. Side vegetable was nearly raw. Not sure whether it was an off nite but we will definitely not be going back.

This authentic Village gem serves up favorite Italian American dishes in generous portions. Delicious and expertly prepared, choose from classics such as eggplant rollatini, artichoke oreganata, tortellini, chicken parmigiana, osso bucco, the list goes on. You will be welcomed and treated like family at this family-run restaurant, now into its third and fourth generation.

Old-school Italian with very reasonable prices for Manhattan. Restaurant is huge with tables well-spaced and surprisingly not very crowded on a Saturday night. Definitely worth a special visit. Menu was limited post-pandemic but no complaints from my group about the food

Villa Mosconi is always our go to for special events - birthdays, anniversaries, or just because.... The food is always excellent. The maitre'd, bartender and wait staff all provide friendly and excellent service and treat their guests like family. On our last visit we ordered pork chop Valdostana, pounded veal chop Milanese, and the lasagna special in addition to some tasty appetizers. All were excellent. Lasagna was the best I've ever had in a restaurant. Can't wait to go back!!

This is my very favorite restaurant in NYC. It IS quiet--I could not find a way to unblock the "I can't remember" option. I DO remember and it WAS quiet and a dignified place to dine and the staff is phenomenally competent and attentive and the food is just awesome!!!

I love the place and recommend it to everyone who wants to be able to have a remarkable meal in an environment where you can actually have a conversation with your companions!!!

The best restaurant on all counts!!!!
