Everyone comes for the chicken and it lives up to the hype. It's juicy, the skin is crispy and the portion is plentiful. Another option: velvety gnocchi, tossed with corn and roasted cherry tomatoes.

The crispy chicken here, marinated in olive oil then split and roasted in Barbuto's brick oven, is classic Waxman simplicity. One of our picks for the city's best roast chicken!

Home of a top-five-caliber roast chicken and gentle prices, this Ital. is especially good in warm weather, when the garage door walls of the restaurant go up.

This colorful, slicked-up car park turned fashionista hangout offers a prime view of the West Village people-watching scene and Italian cucina. Eating seasonal food in a garage was never so much fun.

We wouldn't change a thing at Barbuto. The ambiance, food, and service are consistently spot on, and we love coming here to kick off the warm weather with a table on the sidewalk and a glass of ros.

If it ain't broke don't fix it, and Chef Jonathan Waxman's Pollo Al Forno has been the main seller here since it opened. The crispiness of the skin and moistness of the meat, it doesn't disappoint.

As recommended by the Sartorialist on Instagram, I tried the brussel sprout salad and it's the best in the city! -Tera P.

Kale salad is perfection but only on the menu seasonally. Also you cannot go wrong with the carbonara for lunch or the JW chix potatoes for dinner. And no matter what end your meal with the budino.

Food is absolutely delicious, but it's expensive, especially since the entrees come with no side. I ordered fish with fennel, but I'm still looking for the fennel. If you see something, say something!

It's a great place to have dinner and sit outside. In the summer, it's best to reserve seating beforehand, as it gets crowded. I tried the chicken and it was a bit dry.

While eating the chicken, make sure to save some room for the mint chocolate chip ice cream
