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. a year later: brunch. YUM. not cheap, though; i mean...$90, no alcohol.

I was super excited to try this high end restaurant, but was sorely disappointed! Tables are too close, staff was milling around with frowns on their faces, then when our waitress finally came over with water and I requested coffee(it was 11am on sunday morning!) I was told as she screwed her face into contortions, that they had run out of coffee mugs! Yes, they had run out of mugs. So, after another ten minutes, she finally asked as I inquired again about the coffee situation, that we could have paper to-go cups. As we were desperate for some java, we said, YES, of course, just please bring coffee! We proceeded to dine, our server was better as time passed and they rightfully did not charge for the java, but come on.........too many good places in the city to go there again.

Superb for a business breakfast. Very pretty interior with spread out tables that encourage conversations. The pancakes are incredible and portions are gigantic. Great to share. Eggs are standard fare. The menu is large and service was excellent.

Maialino did not live up to my expectations. I had heard that the POTUS had eaten here and that the food was out of this world. Unfortunately for Maialino I had been at Colicchio and Sons the night before. I found every category (food, service, atmosphere) to be at least one peg lower even though both cost the same price. The best part of my meal was dessert. The bread pudding is very good.

Lunch experience: the ricotta bruschetta and tomatoe croquettes to start were delicious and my husband and I shared two pastas. The food was great with really nice, clean flavors. Dislikes: the Classic Bloody Mary I had was terrible. It tasted like bad tomato juice with no flavor. The desserts also weren't anything special. The lemon scented (not flavored) custard tart was extremely disappointing. The most flavor I could find was in the candied lemon peel garnish. The cannoli gelato was good except it was rolled in heavily salted pistachios that overpowered the creamy taste. Our server was friendly and attentive and kept our basket full of focaccia while we waited for our food. I will definitely go back, but will skip dessert and double down on pastas!

Almost no one I've talked to has disliked Maialino; after all, it has the magical Danny Meyer influence. Paying homage to the Roman Italian cuisine, this spacious restaurant is a suitable venue for almost any location. When I visited with my friend for brunch, we were quickly won over by the simple but delicious Cacio e Pepe, a luxurious portion of pasta that melded the cheese and black pepper beautifully. My simple Contadino, consisting of two perfectly poached eggs atop a medley of roasted root vegetables and a squash puree, was a well-rounded dish, albeit on the smaller side. While I have yet to visit in the evening, Maialino also offers a "Ci Pensiamo Noi", a four-course family-style meal that is decided on by the restaurant... an attractive option that I'd certainly like to return for.

If you want see and be seen, definitely come to Maialino, situated next to Gramercy Park. Jason Wu has been spotted here with my very own eyes. Nevertheless, Maialino is a classic standby. I've been here more than a handful of times and the food and service are consistently good. If you sit at the bar, you'll have a much better chance of getting a seat right away and it's great for people watching. My favorites are the cavatelli (ingredients change seasonally), the egg sandwich, and the lamb chops. Repeat after me. Lamb chops.

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).

Maialino hasn't shared anything with you.

People are more likely to share with you if you add them to your circles.
