Cacio e Vino
80 2nd Ave. New York, NY 11211
Excellent food, wait staff and ambiance. Authentic italian restaurant, staff were born in italy.
The food was excellent, as was the ambiance. however, the waiter was a little pushy about wanting us to order quickly. it doesn't seem unreasonable to have your first glass of wine with a friend without the waiter coming over and looking annoyed every 5 minutes because you're not ordering. i don't go to a restaurant for pressure. it may be that savored customers are less prized than regular ones, since the waiters know they will be getting tipped as a percentage of a smaller bill. my recommendation to the staff there: no one likes to be pressured at a restaurant after only 10 minutes.
Great restaurant. Best in the area for italian food.
The food was delicious and very fresh. The oysters were delicious and briny and the sea urchin spaghetti was elegantly complex. Yum!
