check. check. check.. Came for a girlfriend's birthday last week. Food was good and portions were fair sized. Service was friendly. Cocktails were good and creative. Went downstairs to the lounge right after dinner because the manager invited us. loved that we didnt have to walk outside before heading down like abe and arthurs and sl.
tuesday. I came last night, tuesday for dinner. It wasn't packed and very relaxing. I lovvved the arancini and polpette. I had the gnocchi which was very filling and rich. Must come back to try the upstairs restaurant.
unexpected. went here this past saturday night for a quick bite before going out and it was surprisingly packed! had a quick drink at the bar which i thought was beautiful and had a few appetizers which were delicious. definately coming back again!
Citysearch Editorial Review. Located in the former Merkato 55 space, La Gazzetta is one segment of the larger Villa Pacri, which intends to evoke a grand Italian villa in the heart of the Meatpacking District, with multiple levels offering different dining experiences (including, eventually, a more formal restaurant on the second floor, a rooftop garden and basement lounge). In this scheme, La Gazzetta is the villa’s casual dining room--if casual dining rooms in Italian villas were to include clubby, glittering chandeliers made from hundreds of wine glasses, cast iron accents and Italian marble, not to mention a to-go area and pantry stocked with artisanal olive oils and pastries for sale. Open nearly around the clock, La Gazzetta features a bistro-style menu of Italian-influenced dishes created by former Dell’anima chef Michael Berardino. Best bets include charcuterie, pastas and panini like the speck with Fontina cheese and pickled cabbage.
Finally! A true Italian cafe in NYC. I live in the neighborhood, and I LOVE this new spot. It's very casual and friendly, and reminds me a lot of when I used to live in Siena. The menu is composed of mainly small plates, a trend I'm fond of. The wine list is very reasonable, and has a good selection of wines by the glass. It's the perfect spot to grab some bites and some drinks with friends after work or before going out. They also have a small to-go area that is supposed to open for breakfast soon, and a top-of-the-line espresso machine. All in all its a great addition that I think the neighborhood sorely needed. Welcome La Gazzetta!
