Ambiance was fantastic- will be back!
Nice spot, especially for bigger groups with the larger tables in the front. Get the pizza - pasta is not amazing. Pear, parmesan and arugla salad is delicious!
The beer was remove temperature. They didn’t have chicken parmigiana on the menu. The milensa was dry. I was surprised we still had to pay for the beers.
Server was amazing. He helped take photos, very nice and professional
Th margherita pizza, was given to us in a pool of it's own liquid. When picked up, the slice flopped and fell apart, and the cheese slid off. The waiter had the gall to say that's how the pizza was supposed to be. The guy who cooked it said the same. He went on to cook another personal pie that was thin and purposely overdone to the point of being charred everywhere. I've used Open table to book over 150 restaurants in my history, and this is the first review I've ever written. Possibly the worst pizza I've ever had.
Cash only unless you have Amex Food was slightly pricey for location in my opinion. Ambience was good. Service good pizza was slightly above average for nyc.
Piacere is a very intimate, quiet space. Food was great. Service was great. I will go back, and yes highly recommended. Thank you
We booked Piacere online as a close restaurant to our hotel to go to after the football ended - as such we booked for 8:15pm. When we got there it was empty and the staff told us they could no longer serve pizza as they had turned the pizza oven off. We sat down to order from the pasta menu but then noticed that they only took cash or Amex neither of which we had. We then left and had a great meal in the craft beer bar next door which was almost full and had great food, value, and atmosphere, and was willing to take our credit card.
The restaurant was exactly what we needed after a long day is touring NYC. Owner host was accommodating and prompt. Help us get kids settled. Food was outstanding.
Cozy Italian place with nice atmosphere. Definitely would eat here again if I'm in NYC.
Our food wasn’t piping hot and the noodles were a little harder than needed. The sauces weren’t that great either. Also had 2 waiters and one was really hard to understand. Will not be back.
What a neighborhood gem nearby all the tourist spots at Soho! The services are friendly, food was delish and reasonably priced. Try the taglierini with porcini and truffles. They only accept amex credit card so be prepared!
Best pizza I’ve had! The service was outstanding, food delicious and staff wonderful. Definitely try the Nutella pizza. I will recommend this place to everyone!
Definitely good quality food within a nice, relatively authentic but a bit noisy atmosphere, we though had a very good time with a friend!
Great food and service
Unfortunately, nowhere on the website does it say that they only take American Express or cash. It would have nice to know this ahead of time.
Peccato solo una credit card. Per il resto tutto bene.
Good food and service. The atmosphere was quiet. Make sure to bring cash as they are cash only and they do not serve hard alcohol (wine and beer only). They also do not have a fryer in the kitchen so no fried foods if that’s what you’re looking for. However, the pasta and appetizer list is wonderful.
Truffle pasta tasted like lo mein. Pizza with “roasted peppers” had just raw green peppers. Manager didn’t care at all when we expressed dissatisfaction. Went for my friend’s birthday which we noted in reservation, they didn’t do anything for her birthday and they didn’t ask me about it when we were there. I wanted to leave ASAP so didn’t mention it to them. Overpriced for quality, and small portions.
It was great. Though they didn’t read the open table reservation. We were going there for my fiancées birthday and I wrote that it was a birthday-no mention of anything by the staff. Very disappointing in that regard. Everything else was great
rushed out the door here. i hate to rate a place w good food badly, but an old friend & i met here—we had reservations—& between the attitude of the servers & being rushed thru our meal, we were unable to experience our wine & pizza with any pleasure. also, beware: they only take cash & amex. i wont be going back.
We had a great Dinner at Piacere. The Pizza was real italian (thin and crispy) and delicious. Service was welcoming and fast. Price for value is good.
The ambiance at Piacere is second to none if you are looking for a casual, warm, wood-burning pizza restaurant with a gracious staff and, above all, a delightfully quiet and pleasant place to have dinner.
Wood walls, beautiful wood tables are neither too close nor too far, and the lighting is low but not dim.
The pleasant wine list is competitively priced, and the sound of Italian was heard from those behind the bar. The two dishes we tried were also pleasant, and I would return there without hesitation if I were looking for Italian food or pizza 'downtown.'
Perfect Food in great Location with friendly People. We love it very much! Thx!!! We‘ll coming back.
Best gluten free pizza in the city!
Nice location, very busy, Pizza a bit dry for my taste, but overall we had a good time.
Great food and service . Reasonable prices.
A more modern take on Little Italy
Average food that is expected from a tourist trap. Limited menu.
Great!! Incredible pasta and value. Great location!
Very fast service, delicious pizza! Strongly recommend anyone who loves Italian
We enjoyed our experience! It was lively inside but we wanted to sit outside & enjoy the nice weather. I had the scallops which were amazing. Perfect sear on the outside. My husband ordered the sausage it did not like the sauce. They made him an alternate dinner and took the first dish off the bill. It was great service and customer service
The manager was very friendly and welcoming. He made a special place for our family of ten people. The special was offered and it was homemade pasta and delicious sauce. We would definitely go there again.
We had a party of 10 and all ordered a variety of entrées and every dish was AMAZING! I highly recommend if your looking for authentic Italian food.
Dinner was good, the bread, squid appetizer and linguine fruitta de mar specials were very good. Salads were nice and fresh. Ghnocci and orchietta pasta dishes were just ok. Our server “Eddie-spaghetti” was fantastic. The tables outside are slanted and uncomfortable.
The food and setting was quite excellent. They worked hard to accommodate our group of 6. Watch out - cash and Amex at this place! Kind of a pain. Atm in the bathroom though.
We loved our evening at Piacere. The food was phenomenal and the service was impeccable. We highly recommend this low-key, rustic spot!!
Good food but very small portions on the pasta.
What a wonderful experience! We dined here for an early dinner after getting soaked while visiting the Statue of Liberty. Our family was welcomed and the service was amazing. It was so difficult to choose from the menu because everything sounded too good, and we were pleasantly surprised by all the delicious options. We started with the octopus and potato app, and I had the halibut with clams (a special), my husband had the papperdelle with wild Boar (another special), my kids had the Napolatana pizza and linguine with clams. We finished with tiramisu to die for. The portions were very generous, and there was nothing left!!! Everything was so yummy and pleasant that we almost came back the next night from across town! Highly recommend to those who want to skip the tourist traps on Mulberry and enjoy an authentic Italian meal.
Their AmEx/Cash only policy is right on the menu, so not sure why other diners are complaining they didn't know. Also, the fact that this isn't right on Mulberry or Mott is a huge plus, at least to folks who aren't cheesy tourists who wants a manufactured Italian experience.
The pizza here is perfect, just as it should be. Crunchy, thin crust, homemade ingredients, high quality products. No liquor license but you can enjoy a good selection of wine and beer.
I think the staff are great - attentive service and knowledgeable about the menu and wine. I can tell they get a lot of American tourists and dare I say, often feel unappreciated for not being a typical American-Italian tourist trap. My husband likes certain toppings on his pizza and every time we go, there is a long pause, gentle negotiation and final acceptance of his order; clearly the staff here appreciate authentic, Italian food, cooked well. I certainly appreciate it and if you are looking for an authentic experience without the tourist bells and whistles, you will too.
Great service and amazing food. Top notch pasta and pizza!
