I took my son and some friends here for his 30th birthday on Valentine's Day. We were late and the restaurant was packed but they honoured our booking and gave us an evening of great food and wine! The only drawback was having to pay cash - it was a big bill and it would have been useful to know... More

Great food for a reasonable price! Service was quick, and drinks were never empty. Just a heads up it's a cash only restaurant.

Really good Italian food in nice cosy surroundings. Waiting staff not overly friendly but efficient. I quite like that style so doesn't bother me at all. The chicken wrapped in ham was really exceptional. Great range of brushette to start. We didn't arrive until well after 10 with no booking and no problem at all.

My title is a bold statement but one I stand by. The food here is amazing. I have travelled all over Italy and my benchmark is a gnochieria in Milano. I saw this listed on TripAdvisor as #34 of over 8000 restaurants in NY. I took this rather sceptically. However I stand corrected. This place is amazing. The food and... More

I get delivery from Via Della Pace quite often, its one of the few very good restaurants that actually delivers instead of just available for pickup, the Roasted Chicken and Penne Mint Pesto side are my favorite. I have also been for Brunch and it was just as good, they do have tv's so it can get loud for Brunch,... More

Absolutely loved the authentic cosy atmosphere of this traditional family run Italian restaurant. We a delightful waitress who bought us a couple of tasters of wine before we made our choice. The family recipe tagliatelli Ragu was great and the daily special tagliatelli with shrimp and a light sauce with the fresh taste of lemon zest! We will return!

I loved this restaurant. The atmosphere was wonderful. The quality of the food and wine was great. It is authentic Italian cuisine. Also, the service was excellent. There was a lot of international folks there which gave it a worldly feel. I can't wait to go back. Please beware that they are cash only. However, the food is an excellent... More

Long story short. If you would like to eat at a true Italian restaurant in NY, Via Della Pace is the place. The food is just unbelievable (pasta carbonara highly adviced) and, above all, authentic!!! Pure quality...

Brought my teenage daughter to NYC and found this quaint restaurant after getting lost getting back to our AirBnB in East Village (awesome location) and overheard a guy while walking by talking about craving their food and wanting to get back there. It's in an adorable brownstone with gentle lighting and aromas of Italy. Of course, my daughter fell in... More

Most awesome and cozy restaurant I have been to in a while. The atmosphere was festive and the food good. The restaurant is owner run and the service was attentive and efficient. Would definitely return.

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.
