Yummy – I had a lunch with my girlfriends last week, and I had the best pasta dish in years. It was with lamb ragout and pecorino cheese, simply amazing.My girlfriends shared pizzas and they said the pizzas were excelent. I will definately go back to check out other pasta dishes , and have some more of lamb one.
What a great place – Jerry took good care of us on a referal from Mitchell. The service was good and attentive. The meals were prepared wonderfully and served hot. The canoli was marvelous.
One of the few truly authentic, traditional, family-run New York Italian restaurants left; i.e. – As NYC restaurants so easily come and go, Villa Mosconi has done an amazing job of staying current while remaining true to the simple but proven formula of good food (ask them about Nonna's favorite pasta), fine wine and attentive and genuine service.
I've been going to this restaurant for over 20 years and am proud to say that somewhere along the line, I feel as if I became one of the family. As my former guests and I can attest, the food is always spot-on, whether it's off the menu or one of the dishes off the vast "daily specials" menu. The wine list is very comprehensive, but will not break your back if you're on a budget. And the service? What can you say when the Wait-staff still wear black ties and are all either part of the family or have been with the restaurant since the beginning. These gentlemen have been formally trained as waiters and know the forgotten art of service. The only drawback is the next time you go to another restaurant you'll probably realize just how bad or inexperienced the service in NYC really is.
If you want to try a restaurant that's Old School but can teach the Nuevo Italian restaurants something, I highly recommend Villa Mosconi.
Authentic Italian Food – I have eaten in Villa Masconi's on several occasions since the late 1980's and I must say they are not only consistent , but have gotten better. The menu has so much to offer, but I am a cream sauce lover so I stick to those dishes. My dinner guests have never been disappointed. The service is impeccable and friendly. I highly recommend this restaurant.
Best italian food in New York!! – very good food, nice staff, beautifully simple and elegant decor, and wonderful dining experience. We went at lunch and loved it- Overall, an excellent Italian restaurant that is not too expensive!
WOW! – I had a great time at this cozy place. Was just like walking into grandma's house...everyone was so nice and friendly. Who we thought was the grandma in this family owned business came out to greet us goodbye, gave us a hug. One of the waiters told us why espresso served in America comes with a lemon peel. It was one of the best, if not the best, italian restaurants I've ever been to. The food was so authentic and fresh. I hardly eat out for italian since I don't think it's that hard to make pasta at home. But you definitely can't make this type of itialian food at home unless you have your own italian grandma. The six of us ordered 6 dishes and shared it family style. I highly recommend trying their green pasta -- but all of the dishes we had were excellent (we also had wild boar, linguine w/ clam sauce, chicken rollatini, sausage and peppers, and some other chicken dish I can't remember). They had 2 different kinds of italian beer to choose from. And don't leave before getting a cup of capaccino and dessert. The RASPBERRIES WITH ZABAGLIONE was amazing. We had strawberries instead of rasberries -- the first bite I thought I was eating champagne! All in all, excellent place for a date or group gathering for a special occasion. Never rushed, excellent service, and delicious food.
nice italian place in the village – Food was very tasty and fresh. Ambiance was nice and quiet ... went here on Valentine's day so it was filled with couples. We arrived early for our reservations but they had no problems seating us right away. Good inexpensive food.
The Truth – This is my FAVORITE restaurant in the WHOLE WIDE WORLD! After receiving a recommendation from a co-worker, I took my boyfriend here for his birthday- BEST move I ever made. This family run business makes you part of their family with very warm welcomes. The pasta is so FRESH!! My favorite is Fettuccini alla Romano with Grilled Chicken (the chicken part is not on the menu but they accommodate it to HOWEVER you like it). The Prime Sirloin Steak is always perfectly made. You CANNOT visit this place without ordering the Calamari- you will just DIE from the delicious flavor it gives your mouth! When I get married, this will be the place I host my bridal shower. I PROMISE YOU, you will not regret eating at Villa Mosconi. They make you family, and family is forever!!
A Wonderful Italian Experience – I found this restaurant when I first moved to the village. It is a wonderful place to eat, with a enjoyable waitstaff and authenitc Italian food. All of the waiters on staff and the chef are related. They have a connection that made the evening very enjoyable. I left very satisfied! Also they staff will almost make you anything you can think of.. even if it isn't on the menu. You can't beat the price especially for great homemade pasta!
Editorial Review – Family-run restaurant since 1976 with welcoming atmosphere and indoor garden room serves home-style Italian to special-occasion diners and regulars.
