Glad I Went, But Won't Be Back

The atmosphere, art and dim lighting were perfect for our little date. We sat by the window in those eclectic chairs and watched people lining up next door for a falafel. Great place to people watch for sure. We ordered the capri salad and they were cheap with the mozzarella and the salad was drenched in oil and vinegar. The ravioli ala vodka was perfect!! Cooked well and the sauce was creamy and delicious. The spinach manicotti was underwhelming though, too much spinach and not enough flavor. The bread served with our meal was labeled Italian, but I beg to differ. Our server needed more traning for sure. She never came to our table to check on us, she had poor social skills and didn't seem to understand the whole "waitressing" thing. I had a capuccino that was fine and my boyfriend's hot chocolate was okay. The cannoli was stale and unmemorable....I've had better on Mulberry Street. The bill was the highlight of our night...only 36.00 for two meals (decent portions). That's what I call an affordable night out in the West Village!!

It's such a beautiful little cafe! And the food was not overpriced, and delicious. We also had this drink that consisted of coffee with vanilla icecream and whipped cream on top. YUM!

This doesn't deserve a critic's pick. Food was awful. Pomme frites accompanying panini were inedible. How do you mess up fries? Also, portions were paltry for the price. We gave it a good service rating b/c they didn't charge us full price for the meal when it was obvious we couldn't eat the food.

A little out of the way cafe in the Village. I felt like I had stepped back in time. The atmosphere was warm, charming and relaxing. The food and service were top notch. When the check came I could not believe the value. This one's a keeper! Don't miss it.

I first set foot in Caffe Reggio in 1974 and I've been going back regularly ever since. (Except for 7 years when I was living abroad, but even then I made it back to Reggio twice.) I like the quirky eclectic decor, the unpretentious atmosphere and the cappuccino. They do a line of tasty omelettes and good sandwiches and it's all good value. The staff aren't terribly outgoing but they're nice people when you get to know them and they don't hassle you if you just want to sit and read and sip your coffee. If these are things you value, I recommend Reggio.

Disappointing

We went for a post-theater treat and were very disappointed. This restaurant has really come down. The place, once romantic, looked shabby, even dirty. Salad was okay--nothing special--but tiramisu, which the server recommended highly as being homemake, was just soggy, tasteless cake. Not recommended.

One of the best places in the village. Order an expresso and watch the characters stroll by. I've been leading walking tours of Manhattan for years, and always include this place. http://walkingtoursmanhattan.com
