Inaccurate Profile - Allesandra
By NYC13 on 4/29/2013
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
By golflix on 8/4/2013
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 !!!!
Rude and Socialy Unaceptabe

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.

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
New York's Italian Restaurant
By delancey on 1/1/2016
Bar Pitti is New York City in a restaurant. It is ongoing action--a perpetual collision of perfect smell and sound that entirely envelops all diners. Different languages fly past your ears, delicious dishes are whisked over your head, and the phenomenal peoplewatching of 6th Avenue entertains for the moments between meals. Yes, it moves fast. If you'd like a two-hour Olive Garden meal where the waiter does curtsies so you can leave a lousy 14% for your greasy garlic bread, don't come here. Don't bring a narcissistic desire to hog a table for three hours, either. Sit down, order the Rigatoni Pitti, the veal scallopini, the meatballs, the spinach, the lasagna special, etc., and eat. Don't stiff the waiter getting paid less than minimum wage because you're used to slower meals back in Arkansas. Enjoy Italian food unparalleled in its simplicity and taste, appreciate the most vibrant outdoor seating in the city, relish the prices that allow regular people to eat multiple courses even with Brad Pitt at the next table, and then give your table to another customer when the time comes. This city has never bent over to accommodate those who travel visit, and this restaurant has never done so either. Those who can appreciate New York find it has the best food, people, culture, and feeling of any American city. Those who can appreciate Bar Pitti find it's the best Italian in NYC. Take it or leave it, but don't whine about it, and don't stiff your waiter. I've been going for decades.
