I got a table for two, I didn't know it was so popular or famous. Honestly it didn't kill me. The wine list was very expensive. Fancy, trendy, with a Michelin Star, maybe because of that the service is rushed. I had the fruti di...More

Have been to this restaurant three times and it has been just as good every time. Last was in August for lunch and it did not disappoint this time either. The menu had changed since last time, but it wasn’t difficult to find something delicious...More

We went to Via Carota on Saturday night, just as New Yorker magazine article deemed it the most perfect restaurant in NYC. The restaurant is most definitely delicious, and crowded with lots of great energy, and some of the food (primarily the pasta) is outstanding,...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.
Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you

It depends on the day of the week. You're probably better-suited though, generally speaking, to go towards 2pm, after the lunch-rush.
