We had the anti pasto to start with with a great bottle of shiraz then for mains shared past prima vera and some salads and calamari. Everything was super fresh. We had a huge group eventually and the staff were great about accomodating us. Will return.

The pannacotta here is to die for, really authetic. We came here late night for dessert and port and were really happy. Great local spot. Nice service too.

I never know where to take people in New York. I am from out of town so when family come to visit I always stress out. This was the PERFECT choice. The food was top notch, wine list really extensive (my father is a stickler so this was a relief) and our waiter was lovely. We had the veal, a terrific bowl of pasta and red wine, red wine, red wine. Will definitely go back.

Great, warm and friendly atmosphere with a wine list to kill for. One of my favourite restaurants in the East Village and if you are a dessert lover like me you must have the Tartufo Alla Frutta...

Not sure what's up with the crappy reviews, this place rocks! Real home-style Italian, huge winelist and friendly service. I took my girl on date here, as she's Italian, and we had a ball. We're going back this week!

i went here expecting a cute neighborhood place. i was treated so poorly i will never go back. the food is okay but the attitude does not have a new york vibe. this restaurant should be in a suburb......not in the east village

Just Awful

As a regular to East Village dining, I wanted to take my girlfriend somewhere slightly more upscale. Needless to say, we couldn't have been more disappointed. Not only was the service terrible, but the "home made" sauces tasted like it came right out of a can, and the $7 garlic bread was hard as a rock and had nothing more than some bland tasting garlic spread on white bread. At the end of the meal the owner came over and told me our disappointment with the food was my fault. Overall he was the rudest restaurant owner I've ever come across. With so many similar restaurants in the area I cannot understand how this restaurant is still in business.

I recommend Il Bagatto to everybody I know, its great for couples, small groups of friends, and dinner with parents. I have eaten here multiple times, and each time the food is more delicious! It is one of the best priced meals in the city. I have been in the restaurant when a couple of high-profile celebrities were also dining, but the waitstaff treated us with the same high quality service.

Great real Italian food, not too hard on the wallet, romantic... and cool. What more could you ask for???? Oh and by the way, the specials are the way to go.

Terrible Service and Cramped Seating

My boyfriend and I got there with a reservation and waited a few mintues before being seated in the corner about one inch away from the next table. The waitress couldn't even get to us, we needed to speak over the table next to us. We ordered and didn't get our food for about an hour - apparently our order ticket dropped on the floor and no one noticed. We finally got our food, the pastas were good but not spectacular and it took another 20 minutes to get our bill. Our drinks were comped, but service like that is unexcuseable.
