The best osso buco I've had in a long time. The decor is wonderful, rustic and romantic. Great place for a date. Only problem is you might have to scream across the table just to hear each other. Noisy atmosphere, but if your looking for a great meal, you don't mind the noise. Hey, it's an authentic Italian restaurant, it's not supposed to be quite. Great meal, one of the best. I'd recomend to anyone.

you really have to understand food and design to get this place, the food is outstanding , a little unusual with a authentic feel, and the design is strikingly minimal with old world charm..love it much...

Peasant is a very pretentious place to eat and knows it. The menu is entirely in Italian and must be translated by the wait staff. The front desk is guarded by a dragon lady. The only redeeming feature of this restaurant is that the food is good. But at a price!

If you are a foodie, Peasant won't let you down. The ingredients are fresh from the local market, as the sides are very seasonal, and all delicious. The menu is creative and the preparation is expertly executed for meat, fowl and fish. But the environment is somewhat lacking. The mood of the dining room reminded me of a school cafeteria, as the tables ran straight down the center and the flourescent lighting cleverly disguised behind wall-mounted mirrors is not very flattering.
