il posto accanto ..AVANTI!
By gary1369 on 1/31/2009
After two recent visits to New York il posto accanto has a special place in my mind...and heart. Yes,you can literally fall in love with this "local" eaterie on east 2nd street. Its a warm inviting little space with lowlit candles and a small plates menu of sumptuos Italian dishes. The wine choice was superb with a few hidden surprises explained as we ordered by Davis,the manager ,who is knowledgable but still gives you the feeling that we could be dining at his own home....very unassuming with a warm approach. I would go back for this service alone. But enough....you just have to go.... cheers Il Posto. see you soon.
My new favourite

Love this wine bar... I think it maybe our new favourite haunt. It reminded me of Rome. Great selection of Italian wines and the service and atmosphere was just excellent. Love it!

In my experience restaurants tend to take Rose of their list in the winter months. I am a rose lover so this place was a great find. I'd been to the cousin establishment which I'd loved and the wine here is equally impressive. Nice and quiet too. Good place to watch the world roll by.

I'm a regular at Il Bagatto so wanted to check this place out. It's really worth a look. Had a long and reminiscnet conversation with the bartender about my time living in Italy. We had a few shared plates that were all delicious and reasonably priced for the area. REALLY go here for the wine though. Bellisimo!

Had a crazy bump in with an old friend from London here. He was literally in town overnight and had snuck away from work to have some dinner. We caught up for hours and this little bar could not have been more perfect for the occasion. Try the rose, it's affordable and delicious. We shared some sweets too. Bella!
