    I used to love this place! Always great cozy hideway and find when in nyc, w classic Simple Italian food and wine; made you feel like you were somewhere in Milan or Rome It was always the place we liked to duck in when cold and windy outside for a delicious Bowl of pasta, glass of red wine, and tricolore salad. Or in the summer to get out of the heat and drinking Prosecco or Pinot Grigio instead of red. This time was only fair and some of it was undercooked and clumped together. Tricolore salad had no visible or tastable dressing on it; had to ask for 2 servings of vinaigrette to create any flavor w limp salad greens Music was loud and Motown Service was very friendly and accommodating and trying to do and give their best

    This place is a delightful little eatery. The Italian vibe is on point and the service is so laid-back and polite. But if you dine in, be warned, this place is pretty tiny.

    The food was simple, fresh, tasty and well prepared - one panini, one chicken salad, one squid and shrimp. Sat outdoors and enjoyed being on a quiet street with only a few other customers at lunchtime. All of us were happy with what we ordered. Food came out promptly. Service was pleasant but not very attentive. Would definitely return.

    Awesome food, great effort on the servers. Only issue was the place was too busy and the service suffered from it. But the attitude and food quality sure made up for it.

So glad they were very accommodating to make us feel good and safe! If I could would give 6 stars for the food. A go to in Nolita, worth the trip

    I had the most wonderful lunch at Fiat Cafe. The arugula salad with tuna and eggs was fresh and delicious. The gnocchi was just amazing. And the bread pudding was superb. The service was excellent and the prices so reasonable. They're cash only - but there is an ATM downstairs. Wonderful dining option in the NoLita area.
