Great Gnocchi! - @ Citysearch
Great food at great prices. The gnocchi with gorgonzola cheese is just right. I was there with friends in Dec 2010. writing this review because we are going back tonight.

Great Italian, cute venue - @ Citysearch
My husband and I stumbled on this place a couple years back, and we both loved it so much we went back a couple weeks ago. It was just as we remembered: great, authentic Italian food with great prices (the best ravioli I had - only $12). …

A bit of Italy in the village - @ Citysearch
Been there twice in the last few weeks. Both times had fantastic dinners, from the appetizers through the salads and pastas. Service was European style -- not pushy or rushed, but very attentive when we needed it. Friendly, warm, great…

Great Italian - @ Citysearch
It's a hike for most, but well worth the trip for fresh pasta and inexpensive wine and they serve up one of the best chicken cutlets in the city. A true gem.

Yum! - @ Citysearch
I went there on a second date. I love that they made rubber bands and clothespins on the menus elegant. The artichoke and asparagus specials for appetizers were lovely, and I ordered the spinich gnocci since I read good things about it on…

Outstanding homemade pasta! Highly recommended! *Cash only* - @ Citysearch
What a great find! I came on a recommendation of a passerby in the area, and was beyond pleasantly surprised. I lived in Italy for 4 months, and eating here was the first time that taste alone, literally, brought be right back to Firenze.…

Simple yet totally delicious... - @ Citysearch
I went to Malatesta this past weekend with a few friends and absolutely loved it! Such a cute/cozy place with doors wide open so you can feel the outdoor breeze even if you're not sitting outside. Spinach gnocci was amazing but so were…

Cozy spot with good food - @ Citysearch
I've been here several times and the food is always good. The joint jumps at night, so the restaurant gets noisy and crowded and you will have to wait for a table. One of the best choices in the far west village, although there are lots of…

My favorite restaurant in New York! - @ Citysearch
This is my favorite restaurant in New York. I have been coming to Malatesta Trattoria for years now, have been for every birthday, Valentines Day, every time family comes in town, and it has always been fabulous. Their menu is simple,…

Best Italian joint in the city - @ Citysearch
This place serves up simple and perfectly executed Italian food. The atmosphere reminds you of a local Italian trattoria, with the same service and settings. The wait staff is all friendly. The pasta is homemade and always fresh. The…

Great place for casual lunch or dinner - @ Citysearch
Charming and warm atmosphere, very rapid service and FANTASTIC spinach gnocchi! I have to add a few more words to my review in order to reach the 100 character minimum to post this so there we are . . .

Unpretentious Italian - @ Citysearch
Great little place serving authenic Italian fare. Casual elegance, good vibes and solid food. Great place to take some friends and linger through a meal.

A true gem - @ Citysearch
Keep this place a secret! Stumbled upon it last Saturday and it wound up being the most amazingly delightful dinner. The host (owner?) was very kind and seated us promptly even without a reservation. The ambiance: Simple paper bag…

The happiest place on earth - @ Citysearch
It's not Disney World, it's Malatesta. I've eaten here more times than I can count, and every time I am surprised at how it never gets old. The food, the pasta is always fresh. The service is prompt, charming and surprisingly always…
