Best Italian in the City

Bar Pitti

There are certain restaurants in this city that have that "Je ne sais quoi" and Bar Pitti is certainly one of them.  If you are looking for a perfect New York dining experience this adorable tiny Italian joint will never disappoint.  The majority of the menu comes to you on a chalkboard that is brought to your table at the time of ordering.  In my experience the waiter usually asks you to hold the chalkboard and usually pretty much tells you what to order.  Usually this might be seen as a negative or bad service but somehow they pull it off.  You get the feeling that the entire staff just arrived in New York City for a little village in Italy just to serve you dinner.

The food is absolutely outstanding.  It's no frills Italian that's done right. About 75% of the seating is outdoor so it's a great choice for the warmer months but if you are lucky enough to snag a table inside it can also be a perfect place to warm up during the winter.  This is also rumored to be a favorite of many NYC celebs including Jay Z and Beyonce, so keep your eyes peeled if you decide to stop by!
