I can't tell you first off how much I love the atmosphere of this place. It must just be the building - with all the windows, the sun shines in on a sunny day and it feels so bright and elegant. I didn't have a chance to try much on the menu, but all the food I tried here was fantastic. I will say if you are into wines, this seems like a lovely place to enjoy a early afternoon meal. I definitely would come here again for a special occasion where I'd want the atmosphere to be classy without being stuffy (which I am very prone to avoiding).

Updating my review with a more recent experience. Maialino is excellent. The space is sleek and modern yet warm and cozy. The service is attentive. The food is terrific. Pastas are of the newer persuasion: clean, uncomplicated flavors, lightly sauced, and perfectly al dente. The whole branzino was the best whole fish I've ever had; simply prepared with salt and lemon and olive oil and out of this world. The suckling pig is quite the indulgence — crispy, fatty skin, tender meat, very pricey but a good wintertime indulgence. Panna cotta was very good, bread pudding was just okay. Prices are high; be prepared to spend quite a bit on dinner.

My fiancé and I eat differently. She's all healthy and I... well, I like meat. And fat. We both enjoyed it here. Would I have enjoyed the pig cheek more then the pastas and fish? I expect so. Good place, typical NYC prices. Take a shot.

The food has a delicious simplicity to it that just amplifies the technique and flavor that the chefs bring to each dish. Highlights of the meal were the the peppardele with freshly made pasta and the pumpkin custard for dessert that I could eat every day for the rest of my life. The bread baked in house to start the dinner was like an amazing combination of focaccia and croissants. The waitress let us sample wines to find just the right pairing and the staff was superbly attentive.

Service: Great Atmosphere: Excellent Food: Excellent Came to Maialino for dinner, and we went straight for the offal menu. Loved pretty much every dish on the Quinto Quarto menu (beef tongue and pig face were my favorite - they are very reasonably priced, might I add), and the regular dinner menu offered some great options for the less adventurous diners too (the suckling pig was prepared to perfection). The brussell sprouts here were alright - pretty average and could've done without it. Desserts were also great - the olive oil cake was a surprise hit at the table: light but creamy, it was almost like eating an airy version of stracciatella. Service here is also outstanding, although one of the waiters broke a few plates, and dropped a few utensils. Bad day, I guess. Noise level is about medium-low - you can carry out a conversation easily at the table with normal voice.

One of the best weekday-breakfast/brunch spots I've found in the city. Will definitely make it back. The breakfast pastries were especially impressive.
