Lasagna was amazing. Cacio e pepe was a little heavy on the cheese, prefer the version served by Il Buco Alementari. Will definitely return to try additional dishes.

Amazing!!! We got the burrata, meatballs and of course cacio e Pepe. For dessert we got the tiramisu and the waitress brought over an extra free dessert too. We loved everything! So delicious. The bartender was super friendly and gave us free shots on our way out as well. The food was great, delicious espresso martinis and the friendly staff made the experience even better. We’ll definitely be back!

This was second time there and the food did not disappoint again. Much to our surprise 2 delicious glasses of Prosecco on the house were brought over. A nice way to start the meal. Dishes have interesting combinations. The potato and white chocolate veloute was quite nice. Don’t let the word chocolate put you off. Salads are tasty and generous portions. Pastas are tasty. My favorite is the fettuccine with porcinis and tomato broth. The lamb shank with orange mashed potatoes is hearty and quite tasty. Lately you cannot leave without dessert. The chocolate cream caramel and the amaretto tiramisu are our favorites. We certainly will be heading there again.

The menu is not the run of the mill Italian menu. It's surprisingly unusual, allowing for the incredibly talented chef to set his boundless creativity free, and allow guests to have a great meal. The service could not have been any better, and the courteous demeanor my wife and I experienced from Gina (the owner) was just unbelievable. Overall a "must go again".

Made a reservation at 8:15 and did not get seated until 8:30 while there were 5 tables fully open but no one was cleaning them off. The food was not that great as the pasta was over cooked, meat was not good to the taste and my boyfriends cacio e pepe was runny and super salty. Clearly this place was understaffed.

Great neighborhood Italian with attentive staff and delicioso food that won’t break the bank. Owner/Chef Salvatore walks around, visits with his guests and cooks up great cuisine! Sit at the bar for a fun dining atmosphere and you might get lucky to sample a secret aperitif.

Everything was delicious, but there was a thumping soundtrack. Why, on earth, do restaurants play music like that? The boom-boom-boom, along with the conversations of the patrons and the lack of any sound-moderation, made it impossible for me to hear my companion speak. It's too bad, because I'd love to go back.

We have been to Cacio e Pepe many times, and it never disappoints. We brought a well-traveled, foodie/chef cousin who was extremely impressed with the food, and said, "I would bring ANYone here!!" High praise indeed, coming from her!

We had had such a great experience at their location downtown that we decided to try the new location when we were visiting friends on the UES. Their signature pasta dish is a must; we split one portion 4 ways to have a taste, along with meatballs and other appetizers. Then we each had our own entree, with the lamb shank with an orange sauce and branzino clear standouts. They had just gotten their liquor license and enjoyed their house red wine; a great compliment to the meal. We will definitely be back.
