The Cocktail Party was a Success!

I would highly recommend City Tavern as a place to host a private event. We held a surprise birthday cocktail party for my sister in Nov. In the planning leading up to the event Ernesto and the staff were helpful and flexible. They had several different packages of cocktails and appetizers to choose from and had no problem with us putting up a few decorations and bringing a cake. The space itself is very warm and rustic, big windows and lots of brick. During the event, the waitstaff was very attentive. No one was left waiting long on a drink order. Being a surprise party, the event got started a little late by the time the guest of honor showed up, but Ernesto allowed us to extend the time of the party and to continue celebrating. I would definitely return for another party!

Great for semi-private parties 10-35 people

Last month I was looking for a restaurant in the Union Square area to host a group dinner for my staff of 30 professionals. I couldn't find anywhere who would entertain a pre fixe less than $40 (and I was willing to do a Tuesday night at 5:30!) until I found City Tavern.

Ernesto, the owner and chef, was extremely accommodating. He put together a great menu on fairly last minute notice (one week!), was a pleasure to work with, and got us a great price point ($29 per person (not including alcohol).

We had the front 1/2 of the upstairs which essentially felt private for our team. Everyone thought the food, service, and atmosphere was excellent.

I definitely recommend the City Tavern for a group dinner.

Nothing special

In a very competitive market this place is nothing special.
The food is bland and the wine is horrible. The place was empty and that is why I shouldn't have even bothered.

buonissimo

On a Sunday evening my friend and I spontaneously met up on Union Square to grab a bite to eat. I have been wanting to go to Borgo Antico but have had a hard time getting a reservation on a days notice. On a whim we decided to try...the place was packed, but luck was on our side as the host-owner giovanni was able to seat us right away at a table that was just cleared. Another women checked our bags, she was so cheerful and friendly. We really felt that we were appreciated for our business. The meal was fantastic and our waitress was kind and friendly, not overbearing. The atmosphere was lovely and it was one of those truly enjoyable dining experiences. I will celebrate my 30 birthday here with 30 friends.
Great atmosphere, fantastic food, and exception service!

forza italia alza latesta

After reading in City Search that this was a ""The Best Italian Food,"" I was psyched to go for some good Italian. Turns out, there's a reason that professional food critics exist - this restaurant is great. The atmosphere is super comfortable. The service was informal and intelligent. Every thing I tasted was awesome, and just different enough to edge this place above the generic Italian food that's so easy to find in this city. I found it to be overall quite reasonable as well. The pork saltimbocca was delicious, cooked beautifully. All the pastas were fantastic, with inventive use of ingredients that tasted familiar yet new.giovanni keep up the ship !

good all the way

ur love affair with Borgo Antico started years ago. We had reservations at Gotham Bar & Grill and were early (we were in black tie because we were later going to The theatre to see ""fuerza bruta"" for a special birthday event) so we stumbled around the neighborhood until time for our reservations and discovered Borgo Antico. We found the downstairs area- with a full service bar well stocked. The host and bartender were wonderful. They made us wonderful martinis and took us upstairs to see the beautiful dining room. They had us at ""olives or a twist"". The food is lovely and the service is always superb. I've always said that if I lived in New York, Borgo Antico would be my regular neighborhood haunt. It's terrific.

best wine better food.

I love borgo antico. Last time I dined here (this past Saturday with three friends) we started our dinner with a few pasta dishes recommended to us by the General Manager. They were all delicious, but extreme raves to the Chef's ivan of what I would call the best pasta in nyc. pasta dish, are extremely satisfying plate and borgo antico homemade pasta with chestnuts and lucious creamy Italian cheeses. We decided at this point we wanted some wine. We had a conversation with the sommelier -owner giovanni who gave us some outstanding recommendations to pair with borgo regional (and seasonal) dishes. The wine here is extraordinary and very carefully chosen. in fact he received two years in a row the wine enthusiast award for wine list.Not to make this review a novel, when all is said, this charming little gem of a restaurant presents to it's guests creative and beautifully presented meals.
There is no ""rush-out-the-door here"". We felt like family from the moment we entered this cozy union square 'fixture"", and the feeling remained throughout the evening as we tasted as many of the Chef's delicious and creative dishes as we could (portions ARE NOT small). A perfect meal for the four of us to enjoy and linger over in this very special place, lit with candlelight, satisfied people and great vibes all around. It's no small wonder why borgo antico is always packed, 7 nights a week. and celebrating 14 years in business....

GRAZIE MILLE !

Last Night I visiteBorgo Antico for the third time. I was in NYC for pleasure and work .I was truly impressed with service and the food at Borgo Antico. From a great Handsome and attractive Host to the table service, the food and the ambiance. Our Server was a young men Mattia from bergamo. The service was perfect and our meal wonderful. cheese strudel for my wife and Bufala Mozzarella with sliced ripe Tomato, half pasta Cavatelli with broccoli rabe an sausage, my wife eat pappardelle with duck ragu. The succulent roasted Cornish hen the best in town and my dear wife ""La mia Dolce Vita"" eat Mediterranean Branzino both perfectly and rightly cooked!. For Dessert we select Tiramisu served in a martini glass and Mixed Berries with Delicate Vanilla Italian Beans Ice Cream. and a plate of assorted cantuccini Cookies. The Wine List is well priced match with The Wine Enthusiast Restaurant Awards 2007 with extensive variety of Italian and California Wine. The beautiful mural of picture from tuscany and the staff operates like a well-rehearsed professional Broadway troupe. Borgo Antico is one of the best Italian Restaurant in NYC.! We Reccomended Borgo Antico for the true Italian Food and Service! Grazie !
