TRUE ITALY in New York!! Excellent, excellent, excellent!

Had dinner there last night with a group of friends and all of us were amazed by the quality and presentation of the dishes that the menu says are prepared with local and organic ingredients. It ads that there are vegetarian and gluten-free options! The wine list is all-Italian, fairly priced with all price ranges, but the martinis were incredible. Cannot wai to go back soon.

THIS IS THE BEST ITALIAN: LOVELY DINNER, FEELS LIKE ITALY – We went there after a long time. We heard it's now Sarah Jessica Parker favorite restaurant and WOW! The atmosphere is amazing, the food is excellent (I had the carbonara and my husband had the veal chop special - It was fantastic). The service is very friendly and helpful.

Definitely will return soon!

MY GOODNESS, WHAT A WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE! – By far the best Italian restaurant I've come across!

I had dinner with a friend at Gradisca last night. The service was outstanding. The wait staff was very professional and attentive and our server could not do enough for us.

The restaurant looked cozy and warm and thought it is a great place to meet with friends or bring a date.

We shared the

Great place for large parties – Invited for birthday celebration this past weekend to this spot in the west village. First time there but not the last. Hung out at the bar till everybody else arrived (20 invited). The pomegranite martini is amazing. Really nice flavor & strong. When we were ready (& too many for the bar) we were seated in the back room. Nice & loud crowd already there.

The food..the food...the food..WOW..Italian done right.

We got a whole bunch of stuff to share & taste.

The appetizers were yummy. My fav was the meatballs with pesto. They were so good that I could have eaten over and over again.

Favorite pasta dish..the carbonara. Perfect serving for such a deep flavor dish. Every bite was balanced with all the mix of ingredients.

Finished off with 3 scoops of in house made gelato. The cafe mocha is still in my head.

Can't wait to go back for more dinners.

this is "italian" ? you will leave hungry and disatisfied – very disapointed with gradisca. the portions are extremely small and overpriced. the menu is very limited and the tables/seats are uncomfortable. don't waste your time .

new chef/food made me sick – I used to love it here. When I went last, the server stated they got a new chef and that everything on the menu was "generally the same." Not true. Also got extremely sick from the seafood dish. Would never go back.

Perfection – I've honestly been very reluctant to write a review on my favorite restaurant in manhattan, but i'm feeling generous :)

Gradisca is perfection. Simple as that. The restaurant's owner flies in his mother from Italy once a month and she makes fresh pasta by the entranceway of the restaurant. Definitely try and get a reservation when she is in town and go for one of the pasta specials!

My favorite pasta on the menu is the Maltagliati - "badly cut" egg noodles in a truffle cream sauce. I get this every time I'm there.

They have very creative appetizers as well such as the Cheese Creme Brulee that do not ever disappoint.

I can't say enough about this restaurant. The only thing you should be aware of is that it can get a little noisy if there are large groups dining at the same time as you. BUT if you're with the right person, you shouldn't even notice anyone around.

Wonderful Food, Romantic Environment – I go to this restaurant every couple of months. The food is authentic and delicious, the waiters are friendly and charming and the mood is relaxed and romantic.

The location is really great - this is one of the nicest streets in the West Village. I like to visit this restaurant in the warmer months so that I can eat outside on the patio.

This place is high end, yet low key and casual. It is a great place to bring a date, your friends, or even your grandmother. It really is a hidden gem.

The wine list is fantastic.

Great Italian Food and Good Service – I went to this restaurant about a week ago on a date. We had no reservation but we were promptly seated. The restaurant is very romantic with dim lighting, a charming little place. We were seated at the front, but I believe there was a back room as well. We shared the octopus appetizer which was delicious. I had the veal special and creme brulee for dessert, both also great. We also ordered a bottle of wine. The waitress returned to our table a number of times to make sure that everything was good. I would recommend this restaurant for any date night.

This Fat Lady Sings – I was first introduced to the restaurant which translates into "fat lady" in Italian at my cousin's rehearsal dinner. We had the entire back of the restaurant devoted to our fete. The pasta is fresh and the bolognese sauce is to die for. Paired with their house chianti made for an eventful evening. Needless to say, I have been back. Check it out for dinner or your next event.
