Place was cozy and jazzy, good music and atmosphere. Both the food and service was OK. Maybe a bit too expensive compared to the quality.

A friend suggested we eat here before a play at the IRT Theatre, an experimental theatre diagonally across from Gaetana's. At 5 pm the place was mostly empty, and we had great service. It's got a lot of atmosphere and lots of dark wood. The...More

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the
West Village is one of the city’s most coveted
addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and
cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,
this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.

get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you
