Everything was great except for the 21 year old filled table next to us that decided to waterfall drink the rest of their wine bottles in 10 minutes causing one guy to collapse into our table. I am all for a good time, but this shouldn't be a college drinking dorm environment too. Usually always have a great time.

Yes, my neighborhood go-to and the owner is great. Helps clean and serve and is very personable. They always honor reservations. The only con is that it gets loud when it is crowded, but usually more so when there are large groups.

Basically ignored by the server despite almost no one in the restaurant. Pizza was average at best and way expensive. I would not go back.

We found this place quite by accident. We were on a bus trip to New York. We’re looking for a restaurant near to where we going. Found this place on open table made a reservation. When we arrived we were surprised by its size but the wait staff and service was excellent. Ordered some fantastic Italian food. It was some of the best we have eaten. When we get to New York again plan to go back.

I would have been very happy with my food if it has been 10 dollars, but for almost 20 dollars it wasn't worth it. The ambiance is great but the food, sadly, is mediocre.

We were one of three total tables eating there but the food still took an hour to come out. The server forgot our drinks more than once. The food was decent, nothing outstanding. Loved the ambiance and atmosphere! Had a very relaxed open vibe.

The food was good, but the service has been better. It was busy, and there only seemed to be one server waiting on all tables. The food took much longer than expected, and we had trouble actually getting to talk to the server -- we would've ordered more wine, or potentially desserts, if only he came to our table.

The food portion for the spinach ravioli and ziti and broccoli were quite small. Did not care for the “white sauce”. There was no cream. It was just chicken broth. We did like the arugula salad and the chicken sorentino. Will not be returning

We arrived on-time for our Sunday evening reservation and then waited over an hour for our food. When we asked the owner of the restaurant (who was checking on tables) whether we could expect to be served soon, he said they were overwhelmed with a party of 10 at a large table in the center of the restaurant. There were only 2 other tables of diners in the restaurant. Our food then came out one entrée at a time so that we all began eating dinner at different times. The food was mediocre at best. Given that it was nearly 10pm and we had arrived at 7:30, we ate and left.

Service was extremely slow. There were no place settings or utensils when the food arrived, approximately one hour after we ordered our food.

Very unpleasant. We were the only ones in there for lunch at 1PM and the service was not good. The worst thing was that when we questioned the bill ($56 for a pizza, a coke, 2 salads and one burger) the server (owner) got furious and started yelling at us. I was shocked and saddened by this. The fellow must have some problems to treat customers like this.

This may have been a 4 rating eons ago because now it's a -4. Skip this place. Save your money and eat at home--I recommend a jar of Rao's sauce, which is a definite 5.

Classic Village decor. Love the fire place & old NY style bar. But the best is the home made Italian food & our friendly server Rocco. Classic Italian as well telling us life stories in a passionate & hilarious way, while multi tasking with the rest of the customers while getting our order perfect.
It's dinner & a show. We'll be back!

We went to Eleven B for a low key dinner before going out in the East Village. The food was excellent and the service was great! A few of us ordered the salads and were very impressed. We also loved that it is BYOB. Will definitely be returning.

If you are in the mood for red sauce Italian cooking then this East Village eatery may be an option. Pizza, pasta, salads -- simple, but nothing special here.

I don't review restaurants that frequently, but my experience here was so poor that I felt obligated to leave one. Management, if you are reading this, please use these comments constructively.

I came here on my birthday for a dinner with 3 friends. Father service we received was some of the worst I have ever experienced. It took more than 30 minutes after ordering for the waiter to bring us bread and another 30 minutes for our entrees. One hour between ordering and food? Absolutely unacceptable. Maybe if the restaurant was packed, but it was at maybe 50-75% of capacity.

The food itself was okay- not great, not horrible. I had to add quite a bit of seasoning to my chicken Marsala to give it flavor.

After finishing our meals, we sat waiting for the waiter for about 15 minutes. The last time he had even come near our table was when he dropped of our entrees. Finally, I got up to go to the bar to ask for our check. The man (I'm guessing it might be the owner?) didn't even seem phased that we had to get up to seek out our waiter. Another 5 minutes passes and finally our waiter comes by with the check. No apology or acknowledgment of the poor service. Utterly disappointing experience.

Ambiance is nice. Food is okay. But the service is awful.

Walked in around 7 o'clock and nobody else was there, though it did start to fill slightly as the night went on.

Service was good, though it should be as the only people there. The food was very average, nothing special. If you live in the East Village it might be worth stopping by, but don't make it a destination.

I have yet to have a bad experience here, this place is perfect for larger groups and always provides great service. The main guy in the restaurant, I want to say his name was Vincent, was very kind and accommodating to our group who wanted to try a little of everything. He helped to recommend dishes as well as cut up larger ones so we can all try the food. The lasagne and chicken parm are really good dishes, but their pizza is always simple and delicious. On top of the great food and service, this place is BYO and all the prices are extremely reasonable- wins all around! I would def recommend this to anyone looking for a nice spot in ABC City...or anyone just looking for a nice meal.
If you're planning to head here solo, I would try to call to reserve a table. As they generally cater to larger groups, it can be hard to get smaller tables.

Incredible food - the spinach + apple salad, baked ziti and white pizza are all unreal. Also this place is BYO with a very reasonable corking fee! Whats not to love?
