A noisy eating place for youngsters. Food looked amazing, lots of young hip people and loud music. Very busy. Only stayed for drinks. Toilets were disgustingly dirty

I have been going to Cacio e Vino for the past 10 years. This is, hands down, the VERY BEST Italian (Sicilian) restaurant in NYC. The pastas are fantastic and the portions are generous. Highly recommended!

This is an authentic Sicilian restaurant recommended by our dinner couples. We celebrated a milestone Birthday with great cuisine and good Nero D'avola red wine. Then topped with yummy desserts. A fun evening in a casual setting served by an attentive and friendly staff.

Good food and atmosphere, but the Bill had a few "Errors" in the restaurant's favor. Got my attention when they added a 20% gratuity for our group to the total bill INCLUDING the TAX. So they want you to tip on the tax! Definitely a...More

Our Italian friend took us out here, and we enjoyed a very nice evening and supper in this cozy spot with a spot by the open window to watch passers-by in the East Village. I loved my gnocci (made with beats) and arancini.

The owner Giusto created passing years a nice atmosphere. All the dishes were very good. Service was friendly and easy going. Simple but it feels like a slice of Italy.

East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village,
which offers plenty of unique small businesses
catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college
students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the
old-time neighbourhood feel that you can still
experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned
shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of
the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to

Named 2008’s best Sicilian restaurant by Italy’s elite judge of cuisine, the Accademia Italiana della Cucina, Cacio e Vino is the East Village’s choice venue for fine Sicilian wine and cuisine. Cacio e Vino has broadened its menu to include the traditional Bucatini con le sarde, and 13 varieties of the singular Nero d’Avola wine, ‘the most important red grape wine in Sicily.’ Created in 2006 by Sicilian-born Giusto Priola and managed with his partner Alessandro Ancona, this 50-seat enclave is perfect for serving delicious dinner and weekend lunches in its singular Sicilian style. Knowledgeable, first-rate service accompanies impeccable house-made pastas, traditional Sicilian caponata, and rich cassata in an intimate, understatedly elegant dining area. With its prime location and singularly Sicilian flair, Cacio e Vino is a dining experience like no other.
