My wife and I have been here close to 15 times. We live around the corner and really like the atmosphere and used to enjoy the food & wine. Last two times I've been the food has been a bit less than ok (had to send one dish back tonight), definitely not to NYC standards, but the real shocker is how bad the service is. The staff is friendly, and seem to know their stuff, but they disappear for long periods and seem to forget about you, even when its half empty. I brought 6 friends there the other night and by the end of the night my friends were making outright fun of the place.

I Tried it again with my wife tonight. We had to send one meal back and then they delivered me a glass of wine I ordered 20 minutes late (the check had already arrived in fact).

It's too bad. Nice place, and food used to be good. But they probably need to either change their manager or spend more time training their staff to bring it back. It's NYC and too many good restaurants to waste a night at this one especially in this area of the city, even if it has a cute wine feel to it. Let's hope they get it together before they close for good.

I work in the area and like to go there for a lunch. It could be really busy and you'd better have more than 30 min lunch break. The food is good, the prises OK. Me and my girlfriend went there for a dinner and were really disappointed. Three different people have asked us about reservation, we've been waited a long time for out main course. And when we were leaving nobody asked if we had a nice time, but we have heard three "good bye"s. It felt more like being in a diner, than at the restaurant. Would not recommend this place for a nice romantic dinner.
Though I like the lunches, waiters are more friendly. Wish they quit changing the wait staff.
PS always a problem with bread.

Pros: Deserts!!

Cons: Service, long waiting time for food!

It is refreshing to find authentic Italian food in New York for Italian born New Yorkers. The menu offers not obvious choices and they are always in tune with latest food trend in Italy! Cheeses and desserts are great! Try "formaggio sotto cenere" and panzerotti, amazingly good!!!

Been here a few times, its a great place to take business associates or a few girls or a date. Jody is by far one of the best bartenders I've ever met, he's wonderfully sweet, knowledgeable and honest about whats good, whats just ok. I will continue to come back here for the wonderful wine and cheeses... the decor is beautiful, perfect perfect little find...

Pros: Great Selection of wines and cheeses

Cons: small, upsetting when the bar is full :(

I stumbled across Tarallucci's after a long evening shopping with one of my friends after work. The restaurant was really warm and inviting. The watiress helped us pick out a really great and not that expensive bottle of wine. The food was great and the service was great. We had a really nice time. I def will be back. I actually sent my mother there for dinner last week with some of her friends and they really liked it. All in all 5 stars.

Had a wonderful Saturday brunch here. The atmosphere inside is nice and we landed a nice outdoor table out front. The food was great especially the pasta dishes.

This was the worst dining experience we have had since we moved to the city. The service was terrible. Our waitress was rude and hardly acknowledged us. We had to wave her down for attention and she gave us nasty looks. The food was ok, but not great, and the portions were small. I would recommend skipping this place altogether. You are better off elsewhere.

Pros: the cheese

.

Wide array of choices to suit everyone- cheeses, antipasto, appetizers, pastas & mains. Interesting, almost odd plate combinations; chef could limit the menu and polish up what he's offering, but still quite good! Yes, the front-of-house is barely adequate and service needs some polishing up, but guys, this is not Daniel; if you want your ring kissed or just want a lot to eat, go elsewhere. Loud, so not for the romantic at heart. Good for groups.

Pasta dishes are overpriced. This place is nice for lunch but don't go for dinner. Very poor service. We were ignored all night.

This is the place I go to when I want to have a frothy cappuccino or a full glass of montepulciano, the place where I enjoy a warm cornetto a la crema for breakfast, a panino with prosciutto or bresaola for lunch and a plate of cheeses with honeys and chutneys then gnocchi with radicchio and tiny bits of spek (bacon) for dinner. Maybe it's because I almost always hear Italian when I go here or maybe it's because it just feels and tastes Italian but Tarallucci e Vino transports me almost instantly to my days as a student in Rome. There's that same feeling of warmth and style and there's that simple yet scrumptious food. Yes, sometimes it hits me that I am steps off of Union Square (it can get a little noisy at peak times) but mostly whether belly to the bar or tucked in the back corner savoring a gelato, I am happy that I've come and so are my friends and family.

Where do I even begin?
1. Reservation was lost.
2. Dinner was overpriced, subpar and slow to arrive.
3. Manager was screaming at the staff at the top of her lungs.
4. A waiter was very loudly fired while we were still finishing dinner.
5. The bathroom was a pig sty (never a good sign)

I agree with the post that says "just keep walking." This was a horrible experience.

I had faith in it because I love Italian cafe/restaurants, but the service and atmosphere just kills the vibe.
I've found the staff to be defensive more than once when I was dissatisfied with the food. I had to flag down a waitress to put in my order and I didn't see her again -- she didn't even drop the check.
They forgot to bring bread with the cheese plate and when they finally did it was a basket of a few tiny bread pieces and mini-blueberry and almond muffins...weird. The cheese was superb, though, so that saved the day.
Overall, this place is exemplary of how an inexperienced staff can ruin a meal.

I've only been there for wine and cheese but it was great. The server was incredibly knowledgeable and friendly. The atmosphere is warm and romantic but also really low-key. Definitely a good place to go with on a date when you don't want it to feel too overdone. Also a good place to go with good friends for some wine and conversation.

We just happened upon this spot after finding out Rosa Mexicana was on a long wait. We decided to take a chance and are glad we did. The atmosphere is very romantic although a bit loud. Our server was very knowledgable about the wine and cheese menu. The truffle cheese is truly divine!!! We also had the hen broth soup with creepes (sooo yummy), shrimp salad, gnochhi and vension. Loved and ate every bite, but did not have any room for dessert . We will definetly be back.

I have been here four times and with each visit the food, wine and service was wonderful! Although I wish they still had the Butternut Squash Risotto.

It looks cute enough from the street, but just keep walking. Not worth the money or time. The ravioli was fine, but the portion was child size. The unexceptional fried porkchop is served with all fried side dishes on a piece of oil-soaked brown paper -appropriately underwelming presentation. The wine was good, but not enough to make up for the overall experience. Don't get suckered in by the outdoor seating and romantic lighting... there are many better meals further down the street.

The wine list is too small and the staff knows nothing about the wines. The food was basic food that didn't need to be cooked, cold and bland. Something about the layout of the restaurant makes this place really cold and uncomfortable. Sorry, I won't be back.

I made a reservation for my wife's birthday, only to get there and find our reservation had been lost. The restaurant was crowded and noisy. The manager said they were sorry but could no longer accomodate us, despite the fact it was a mistake on their end.
When we said we would be willing to wait,or order for take out, we were told no. The owner refused to speak to us. It was embarrassing for me, upsetting for my wife.
A shame as we'd heard good things about the food.

I've been twice.. on both occasions, food was very tasty.. the desserts delicious.. a good selection of wines.. the wait staff are very nice but the owner has a lot to learn when it comes to customer relations. Go for the food but watch out for the service.

We've had a great dinner here--the truffle flavored cheese was amazing--with a nice gnocchi pasta and a delicious sea bass topped with broiled tomatoes. Brunch is also quite good--I enjoyed the tomato mozzarella panini. The atmosphere is very European. It's bustling and fun.
