THE ITALIAN TRATTORIA IN THE HEART OF NEW YORK – italian restaurant

Gradisca is a family-owned and run restaurant with its roots in Bologna and its soul in the delicious comforting dishes that make Italian cuisine so universally loved. Fresh pastas hand-crafted daily. Classic Italian recipes made with great local ingredients. Wines that love food. All of it served with peerless hospitality.

Named after the vivacious beauty in Federico Fellini’s Oscar-winning movie, Amarcord, Gradisca was founded by Massimo Galeano to recreate the dining experience he knew as a food lover in Italy. It’s just the place to meet a friend (yes, you can actually hear each other speak). Go on a date. Take the family out. Dine outside in warm weather. Hunker down at the bar for a Negroni and maybe a plate of tortellini that New York Magazine named one of the best dumplings in the city. Or reserve its charming back room for a private event, Italian-style.

Located in a brownstone in the heart of the West Village, Gradisca, is the kind of warm and welcoming restaurant everyone wishes was in their neighborhood. The kind of place where you’ll be treated like a regular, even on your first visit.

Buon appetito!

“In vino veritas.”
“In wine there is truth.”

Our Bar is where you just sit back and relax. You can enjoy a glass of wine, your favorite cocktail, a stuzzichino quick bite or even a full meal. Long-forgotten and new cocktail recipes are conjured up by our expert mixologists using fresh herbs, seasonal and home-made ingredients.
Add to the blend some vintage dolce vita, and our bar will be where you will want to round out your day.
