Piadina is my favorite local cozy Italian spot. Cozy, romantic and casual...delicious pasta, amazing buffalo mozzerella with a terrific wine list. I love to try new places but I keep coming back here.

Is this the best Italian restaurant in NY? Probably not. But I can't afford to eat at the best. Of the rest, this is certainly the best. The staff was really kind, going out of its way to accommodate our ever-growing and unreserved group.

I have lived in the neighbourhood for a long time and always love this restaurant.

I recently had to find a restaurant for 8 -10 people and thought this would be the place to go. They were so gracious and the food was excellent. We had

I used to love this place too, but I went on Friday night and two hours later I got really sick. The salad didn't look right, and I didn't eat much of it (they took it off our bill). It might have just been a one time thing, but I don't think after that experience I would go back.

Piadina is definitely one of my favorite restaurants in the city. It has great food and a great atmosphere. It's a perfect place to take friends who are visiting from out of town because it's very "New York" (without all the fuss of more popular dinner spots) and it has something for everyone. We take all of our friends and we've never heard complaints!

Cons: Kinda small, and they don't take reservations

This is my favorite restaurant. They have a cozy atmosphere, delicious food, tasty wine and good service. I would highly recommend getting the Tagliatelle Al Ragu - it's phenomenal! The pasta is always fresh!

Ever since I walked into this charming rustic place, I have been going at least once a month and I don't even live in the neighborhood! The menu is simply and yummy, the service is very easy-going, and the place is cozy. I love everything about the place and cannot wait for the next visit.

I have been goin to Piadina for years now and I just love it every time. The atmosphere is so quaint and darkly lit. The food has been astonishingly good for the price and the waiters are wonderful good-looking men who are happy to please. I can go here with my boyfriend for a quiet date or with a gaggle of friends for a birthday or whatever.

Went early on a Thursday, had no trouble getting a good table. Loved our pizzas, mojitos in a cafe glass, and best of all, sgroppino - that lemon/vodka frozen dessert drink I hadn't had since Italy '02. Keep your expectations low (its a pizza joint!) and you'll be very happy (big pizzas with interesting toppings, strong drinks, low lights, not very expensive) We even liked our sweet waiter.

I can honestly say in my 7 years of dining out in Manhattan that I have NEVER been treated so offensively than by the server and manager at Piadina. Story: I made a reservation for a party of 7 for the following Saturday evening at 6:30 pm. As we entered the restaurant we were told that we had an hour to eat in order for them to accommodate a reservation that they should never have accepted in the first place. As a former waitress for years, you just DON'T do this! At the end of our meal, they asked us if we were interested in dessert and we replied with a yes. After offering us the dessert menues, Piadina had the audacity to refuse to serve us and asked us to leave in order to turn over the table for next customers!Clearly, $$$ and table turn-over is much more important to them than customer retention! We even asked to speak to the manager who was speechless and unapologetic. This experience is very disappointing, because my boyfriend and I were regulars there and this was the first time we brought our friends with us. We were shocked, embarrassed and disappointed by the lack of professionalism of the employees at this establishment. I hope the owner reads this to understand how his employees are treating his customers.

This cute Italian restaurant is the perfect place for a first date. It is cozy and fairly inexpensive, but they only accept cash. Go on a Friday or Sat. for the best atmosphere. It gets crowded, but you usually only need a reservation for a large party. I've been several times and I will definitely be going back!

just had one of THE best meals i've had in a while. the food is very simple but well-prepared, well portioned and fresh. the homemade tagliatelle with meat sauce was abs. unbelievable. all around cute, intimate place, but don't expect to lounge around too long after your meal - the place was very packed on a sat. night and we were in and out in under 2 hours.

As a highly recommended restaurant, I came with high expectations to Piadina. I am very happy to say that they were all met. The service if friendly, the decor is a bit bland, but the lighting romantic. The food is exceptional.

Have been here several times and always enjoyed it. Made a reservation for 10 on a busy Saturday night and our group had a fabulous time. The staff was very accomodating, food was great as usual and the wine was flowing. The bill came to $35 a head including gratuity. Nowhere else in NYC can you go out and have that type of meal and atmosphere at that price. This place never dissapoints!

I'm truly shocked at some of the negatives reviews of this place! I've been coming back to Piadina for about 4 years now and am still just as pleased with the food as I was the first time I visited. The pasta is always fresh and the bufala mozzarella just MELTS in your mouth - it's one of the best I've ever had. The atmosphere is cozy and romantic and although the waitstaff can get busy and are a little preoccupied at times, I do think they mean well. My only complaint would be that over the past couple years, the quality of the house wines has dropped. Other than that, still a consistent #1 good-eats place in my book.

the bland wine paired incredibly well with the absoultely tasteless food. not even the slighest tinge of romance ever even crept into the ambiance here. the acoustics were so awful, it was impossible to speak or hear anything. it felt liek we were in that awful olive garden commerical. enough said.

Don't expect any miracles, but the pasta is consistently good and you cannot beat the prices for the fresh quality. Service is often extremely Euro (aka not terribly attentive). Don't take it personally - relax, have another glass of the mediocre house red and have fun. This is not Il Mulino.

I love this place. I take all my first dates there, and it always works out wonderfully. You can't find a more romantic Italian restaurant, in my opinion. Get the magnificent Penne A Pomodoro and a few glasses of red wine, and you'll be in culinary heaven. And, you can smoke in the back! It doesn't get better than that. VERY romantic. Great ambiance... low light, candles, etc. The service stinks. You'll either be ignored for a while, or they'll bring you white wine instead of red, but you straighten it out. You won't even really notice the bumbling waiters, because you'll be too caught up in the perfect romance of your date, and the outstanding cuisine.

Piadina reminds me of college food. It's simple, informal and nothing special. It's filled with college kids because it's moderately priced which makes it lively. And as soon as I paid my bill I was asked to leave. That was rude and left an unpleasant impression on me and my friends.

I absolutely love Piadia. The pasta is homeade...the cheese melts in your mouth. I'm surprised that people have given the food such a low number. It's a great date restaurant and the waiters are hot, but sometime a little slow.

A great place for good quality, real northern italian food - not the artificial, oversized red-sauced gloop that passes for Italian to some New Yorkers.

Not too expensive, but nothing to write home about. Food was mediocre: average, uninteresting pastas, and a veal chop : that was extremely fatty. The service is authentic italian: slow and totally disinterested. Also, they don;t take credit card! It's cash only, whcih is very inconvenient when you are paying for a group of 12 people. I'm not sure how a restauraunt in manhattan can afford to lose the credit card business- an attempt at hiding their income, maybe? The wine list is good, and overall it is not too expensive, though, and the atmosphere is very dark and brick-covered, much like any damp basement.

I went to Piadina with a group of 6 friends which quickly grew to 8 friends the staff was very accomodating and friendly. The food was fresh but just sortta blah -nothing really stood out, since we had such a large group we had a good portion of the fairly limited menu and there was nothing that was BAD per se but Nothing that was very memorable either,all in all I would recommend it for a quick bite,but no need to go out of your way.

This little basement restaurant remains one of Manhattan's relatively undiscovered treasures. The dimly lit dining room is a hangout for the ultra-hip, quasi-celebrity crowd, but somehow maintains its unpretentious vibe---ask the host for…
