Wonderful old style NY Italian restaurant where some of the waiters have an accent that adds to the experience. Staff takes pride in their work. Food was just what you would expect. Like Mama made it with care.

The moment you walk through the door you are greeted with a warm and sincere welcome. I always enjoy the high
standard of excellence the Villa Mosconi strives for and achieves. The room is quiet and elegant, I feel that I am dinning
in Italy. The staff is polite and well informed. My complaints to the chef for always creating a wonderfully prepared
dish. Thank you for a fine dinning experience.

Great spot and delicious food. Went for the lunch special and the pasta was amazing. Very fresh. When we arrived about 12:30 p.m., the place smelled a bit like cigarette smoke, but as the food was being cooked and more people arrived, it practically went away. Ah, the old time when you could smoke at a restaurant. Didn't bother me.

Most of the dishes were just ok to good. Chicken Cacciatore was awful, the color was dark red and the meat was unchewable. We mentioned this to the waiter and all he said was, "yes, the Cacciatore is always tough". Come On Man!!!!!

Our first time at Villa Mosconi was ok. One hostess lady was very nice and was going to sit us at a larger 4 seat table per our request. Then another lady came over and in front of everyone said no that we had to sit at smaller table because the other table was for 4 people only. So we sat and one minute later, the lady sat 2 people at the 4 seated table we had just asked for. This was not a good start. Our waiter was very nice and attentive. The food was ok. Would not return.

My friend (who is Italian-American) and I wanted a quiet restaurant with excellent food, preferably Italian, and within walking distance of Washington Square. We found it at Villa Mosconi. The fettucine with fresh porcini was outstanding. The branzino we ordered was good but not outstanding. The desert (tartufo) was great - very delicious, and worth the calories. The wine by the glass was fine, but not exceptional. So overall the food was very good (ranging from excellent to okay). But what set this restaurant above the bar was a combination of the service and the environment. Our waiter was professional, friendly, and attentive, and was never bothersome; we commend the waiter for suggesting that we *not* put Parmegiano Reggiano on the pasta until we tried it -- good advice, and we didn't add the cheese. The environment was elegant without being over the top, dignified without being stuffy, and very quiet. This is exactly what we were looking for! We'll be back.

We fell in love with this place! From the food, to the service, to the atmosphere, everything was perfect. If you are looking for a wonderful meal for 2 or 20, Jerry and his amazing team will do you right. My wife and I had lunch and the next day I had a business dinner for 20 in their Garden Room. We were treated great and made friends with the owner; great guy. Try this place. You'll be glad you did.

A wonderful authentic Italian multi-generational family owned/run restaurant in Greenwich Village. Although for my taste the Bronzini (European Sea Bass) was a little over-cooked. The other main courses, appetizers, salads, side dishes and deserts were all very tasty and the portion sizes were generous. Prices were affordable.

p.s. Also a rare find was the Zabaglione, made to order and served warm!

We'll be returning.

Good food and service. Be advised, however, that some of the desserts are not made onsite - if you have any nut allergies, you must tell them in advance and ask to have the original box checked, even for something like chocolate mousse.

Very good Italian food. There were 3 of us - we each had a different entree- all delicious. Husband thought his grouper (a special) was best he ever had.

Only complaint- we had asked for quiet table and we were seated next to a large, noisy group. We should have asked to be reseated but decided not to.

Villa Mosconi is an old family favorite. This is a very authentic Italian restaurant, family owned and operated.
A meal at Villa Mosconi is as close as you can get to being in Italy. It’s not pretentious like the uptown restaurants, just great food.
It has an extensive menu; however, if you don’t see your favorite, ask your server and i’m Certain the chef will accommodate your request.
You will Love Villa Mosconi.

What a find! I've been in NYC for 40 years (and this establishment just celebrated its 40th anniversary!) and never knew about this place.

Convenient location, nice ambiance, friendly wait staff, and most importantly, excellent food. We had the eggplant parmigiana and one of the evening's specials, ravioli stuffed with veal, spinach, chestnuts, and parmigiana. Both were scrumptious!

Desert was a light and tasty ricotta cheesecake. Mmmm!

Villa Mosconi is now at the top of my list for restaurants in Manhattan, and I am very much looking forward to my next visit.
