Though "THIS" profile is old - It begs the question... "Have you ever been to Bar Pitti?" It seems that EVERYONE in NYC other than Ms. Vallis and Silvano Marchetto know the real story and history of Bar Pitti from birth to present. Puzzling how NY Mag and Grub Street continue to be in the dark. I encourage you to visit and, perhaps, speak to it's creator Giovanni Tognozzi. Be sure to actually EAT there during your visit and write about the fabulous food at this authentic Greenwich Village monument of true trattoria cuisine in its purest form! You won't be disappointed ;)

Pure Bullshit Italian restaurant

WARNING !!!! Save your money ...make that cash ! Briefly, how do feel about ordering garlic bread for $4.50 and getting 4 pieces of the table bread toasted and sprinkled with garlic powder? Does that tell you what kind of place this is? Dishes that are supposed to be grilled are drenched in saute oil. Service sucks! Waiters are condescending and rude. A request for lemon is met with eye rolling. NEXT !!!!

They haven't a clue about good service or good food for that matter, wait staff was in a hurry to have our party of four leave, they made rude comments and cleared the table before we were finished!! Its not like we weren't spending money or nursing a drink! we ordered appetizers (for lack of a better publishable word!!) had a couple bottles of wine Oh and We Won't Be Back......

I love the service, food is incredible, and at the atmosphere is great. They even speak italian so you feel like you are in Italy! They have a ton of daily specials and even the menu itself has a wide array of choices. I definitely recommend this place.

WORST SERVICE. MEDIOCRE FOOD. RACIST OWNER.

I live right around the corner from the restaurant, and while I've always noticed the poor service, I continue to dine here for the outdoor seating/people watching (food is okay). Normally, after having a bad meal at a restaurant, I chalk it up to an off night and move on. However, after being publicly berated, aggressively threatened, and subject to racial insults by Bar Pitti's owner (Giovanni Tognozzi) for taking too long to finish our meal (4 girls with a full meal and drinks clocked in at 1 hour 30 min btw), I thought it was worth sharing and asking all of you to BOYCOTT Bar Pitti. I won't get into the details of Giovanni's insults, but New York is full of amazing Italian restaurants ( Lupa Osteria Romana, Babbo, L'Artusi, RubirosaNYC)), so save your time/money and tolerance for bad service and ignorant behavior – boycott Bar Pitti and head somewhere else (Da Silvano is right next door with the same outdoor seating)!

A real winner , the food is Fantastic as close to being in Florence Italy as it gets and some dishes better. Great crowd of people , small and very busy . Staff , makes it happen moving food out and in. Wine selection is great at every price point . A must go BRAVO BAR PITTI
