The waitress was not so nice because we didn’t order much food or drinks. We had the pansanella salad, margarita pizza with mushrooms - it was not special at all. We had a cappuccino and cheesecake for dessert, the cheesecake was not tasty at all....More

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the
West Village is one of the city’s most coveted
addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and
cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,
this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.
Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you
