Only real issue, though significant, is the noise level which makes it very difficult to speak with and hear the the people you are dining with. Food was delicious and service good!

Energetic noise level is not the right description. Unbelievably loud is more accurate. We had trouble hearing one another across our table. And, this was with the front wall of doors being open. I can't imagine the decibels in the winter. They need to take steps to deafen the noise.

Belle soirée. Très bon italien. Pâtes fraîches, délicieuses. Pizza cuites au four sur place. Service excellent et avenant. Prix très raisonnables. Un peu bruyant, mais bon, table à coté de 8 filles sur le party donc... Enfin, je le recommande!

They took lovely care of us on our bachelorette party and brought out a special dessert and sparkler at the end. The food was prompt and good quality. Didn't blow me away, but relatively special. I found it to be very loud.

I’ve been in NYC for 3.5 years and Cacio e Vino has always been one of my favorite pizzerias in the city. Today I’ve been back after a while and although the service was great I had a disappointing surprise at the end. 20% gratuity was included in the tip which has never been common there. I asked for clarifications and the Italian “manager” answered that maybe they thought I was a tourist... what a poor impression! So it’s very clear they’re trying to take advantage of tourists as in NYC gratuity should not be included unless for group of people. So sad to hear that! And he’s not even tried to justify that in a better way or to apologize offering something. I was used to be there also for Tuesday’s events but honestly I’ll not go back, I don’t like being played like that. Pay attention to your bills!

Service was awful. They rushed us out of the restaurant with no one there. They also gave us a very expensive wine without consulting us. Food was fine but can find better

Our waitress was an absolute sweetheart and had great recommendations. The pasta was FRESH and delicious. It was the perfect spot on a summer evening to eat pasta and chill out. It can be a bit noisy but the prices are amazing for the food and portions you get. I would recommend to anyone looking for a great occasion spot or just to have a nice group foodie session.

Always love going there for the best authentic Italian food. It's the third time we found ourselves overwhelmed by large groups taking over with just too much noise and basically behaving as being in their own home. I guess the manager felt that way too and offered a fantastic dessert to share. We will come back for sure, but we will ask if there are any big groups while we plan to be there.

Always great food at Cacio e Vino. They were able to take a reservation for 10 and we were sat on time at a comfortable table. It’s a bit noisy so if that’s a problem maybe sit towards the front. Service is always great

The place is amazing. Great Italian restaurant with a dynamic atmosphere. We were a group of friends and the staff managed to add more seats as we had a bigger group than planned.
The food was very good and the wine too.

I can’t say enough great things about this restaurant. We love the food, the owner, the staff. Tonight we took our friends who never ate here and they can’t wait to come back and bring more people with them. The grilled octopus, the pastas, pizza, desserts, amazing . Great wine list, especially the Sicilian wines.
