Walking down the street trying to get out of the cold and find a nice place to eat we decided to try this place (and it had a lot of people in there!). Menu had a great variety of Italian food options - along with nice wine. It felt like a rustic sort of place with very happy friendly staff.... More

We arrived straight from the airport based on reviews. We weren't disappointed. Had to wait a bit to get a table, but no biggie. Had a glass of Sangaria while waiting. Finally, were seated and the endless mimosa began. Ordered one of the omletes and homefries. Delicious! Bread was also amazing! Would definitely go here again while in NYC!

My wife and I took our son and his girlfriend out to dinner to celebrate his birthday. The service was great and the food was outstanding without being overly pricey for NYC. The upstairs has a great vibe with classic R&B music playing in the background while the downstairs is a traditional rock and roll bar (cash bar only). About... More

The service is not rushed, the food is delicious and moderately priced with a very nice selection of wines. We the short ribs and pork chop with the tiramisu for dessert which I can honestly say I have never had one this tasty - bravo

I went here with some friends on a Wednesday night because we heard they are a heavy metal bar. There was no heavy metal, sadly. We were in the basement bar, which looks pretty cool. We were waited on by a server named Kel, who is from Melbourne Australia. She was incredibly rude and unprofessional. I ordered a pizza and... More

First time visit and I really enjoyed my meal. Rigatoni with zucchini and peas was really good. My date had the chicken over broccoli rabe...beautifully done. Look forward to a return visit.

Three Of Cups rocks! I love this place, and wish I got there more often. I went on Friday, Oct 10th and I'm not sure if it was happy hour or some kinda special, cause I REALLY don't care about things like that if the place is dope , but I drank about 5 or 6 Jack on the Rocks... More

Found this place by chance while walking around the area. Good variety of pizza, with some great flavour combinations. Slight drawback is that it's a bit cramped, with the tables quite close together, so it was pretty noisy. But definitely worth it for the food.

After a play at the Metropolitan Playhouse we were walking up First Avenue and stumbled across the Three of Cups. There was a party exiting and we asked them how the fare was. They replied in the extreme positive. They were absolutely correct! Three of Cups is a taro card that represents exuberance, friendship, and community. The feeling at Three... More

Staying in East Village

Neighbourhood Profile
East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village, which offers plenty of unique small businesses catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the old-time neighbourhood feel that you can still experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to wander up and down the streets searching for the newest hip spot, or an old-school favorite. In the center of the neighbourhood, Tompkins Square Park serves as a gathering point for the New Yorkers that call the East Village home. The people-watching here is hard to beat.
