The meals are small and carefully crafted. The cappuccinos are the standard by which all others are judged. It can get crowded at times and the staff, while efficient and friendly, are spread thin. I prefer the off hours to appreciate the fine service and surroundings.

This place has been around since the 1920's and is full of antiques so it's a cool place to go. The fact that it's open until 2am weekdays and 4am Fridays and Saturdays makes it even cooler. It's a good Euro cafe...great coffee drinks, fresh juices, and small plates. Drinks are priced a bit high but the food is reasonable. During warm weather months, they set up a cart outside the restaurant for panini on the go. Hint: get one of the Sandwich Platters rather than a panini. Still a grilled sandwich just bigger, on different bread, and comes with sides that the paninis don't come with...all for the same price. Only complaint is the service. Every time I've been there's been battles to get the wait staff's attention.

It's a cute cozy place with seating indoors and outdoors on the street. Inside it's a little crowded and warm, and the chairs are uncomfortable, but the food is good and at a reasonable price. Just make sure you know that you'll be paying $2.75 for a drink and the portions are pretty small.

I love this place - it's really easy to get to from the subway, it's cute & perfect to bring non-ny'ers to, the menu has a million items, the prices are very very reasonable, and the service is good. The food and drinks aren't the best ever, but they're really good for the price.

this little cafe has a real italian "the village" cafe type of feel. it's quaint, cozy, a little small and cramped. the food was prompt and the coffee was good. the service was helpful and not at all rude. i probably wouldn't go back again because i think i could find better ambiance & food somewhere else.

Reggio appears to be a cute intimite cafe, look again. Recently, I passed the cafe and noticed "nice" atmosphere -People talking, writing, reading, and USING laptop computers.
Came back later to do work with my small laptop when a man approached demanding " do You know who I am?" Confused I said no-he proceeded to say he was the cafe owner & that I was not to use my comp. in his cafe. He was extremly rude and when I asked the waitress if there was a sign advising not to use laptops, she said no. The owner asked the waitress what I said and then proceeded to shout profanity at me from the entrance of the café. Of course he waited till after i order the extremly overpriced coffe and dessert. SAVE YOUR MONEY- RUDE SERVICE, OWNER, & OVERPRICED...try the italian bakery or many friendly cafes around the corner.

Pros: good coffee, Waste of Time, DO NOT RECOMMEND

Cons: , Rude Owner!, Over Priced

The chairs are really uncomfortable and the space is a bit cramped. What more could make this place feel like a real Italian cafe?
We went for brunch... the mozzarella and prosciutto omelette was really good but the eggs benedectine were below par. The coffee is great and the wait staff has a very laid back and casual attitude.
The prices are phenomonal for the area! It's worth a try...

The pastries were stale--too stale to finish! We were expecting the usual high quality one has grown accustomed to in city cafes. While the atmosphere was dark and inviting, it didn't make up for the disappointment. Our coffee was fine, but we felt extremely ripped-off by the experience. We told our server our desserts weren't very good, and she nodded in agreement. Needless to say, there are too many good cafes in the city to return to this one.

I loved Cafe Reggio when I was in high school. Went back recently - the day of the Coin Ed explosion power-outage. it was better than ever. The food was great and when the bill for three came - I couldn't believe it! The prices looked the same as when was a school girl. Probably not - but...Wow! It had the same charm and magic.

It's sad to say that I have to give this cafe a low rating, because I've been going there for years. However, my experience today has left me sad. The manager asked us not to play cards and proceeded to not provide a reason. What's up with that? No gin rummy? But you can read and write? What is the difference? Therefore, if you like to play any games, and prefer to be in with a warm, friendly environment, go elsewhere. For this place has changed. This is no longer the place it used to be. :(

...Caffe Reggio is the quintesential cafe. My only complaint is that it has the world's most uncomfortable chairs, but I figure the reason for this is they don't want people too stay TOO long (it's easy to get lost in a book while sipping a fabulous latte and forget about anything else... including ordering a second cup!). Also, service is unpredicatable - sometiems they're nice, sometimes they're just too busy or bored to be nice. But still, it's one of my favorite cafes in the city.

While I was eating a tasty Rome at Night--which is a cocktail of fresh fruit in yoghurt with the fat back in where it belongs, my friend commented to me: This is the sort of place you expect people to write in. We looked around. She was right. Two people at different tables were scribbling away. Tourists on a break? Students from nearby NYU? Who knows? This little coffee shop, with its cramped tables, tiny wall-mounted busts of composers and huge old paintings, definitely has character. Supposedly, the building dates back to the 18th century; the cafe itself to the early 20th. Plus I was sitting in what appeared to be an old telephone nook at the back of the restaurant. (The door was gone; the phone remained.) With its old world charm and nicely bitter cups of coffee, this joint is a Village classic.
