Foursquare Tips

  • always, always sit downstairs. preferably at the back corner of the bar where you can have a good view of the entire room. the upstairs is for those that do not know what they are doing.
  • Tuscan dining at its best . . . topped off w bread pudding if you know what's good for for you!
  • Romantic date spot. Great wine list. Candle Light and intimacy.
  • Frank Decarlo's countryside Italian restaurant has long been a staple on the first-date circuit. The room is warm and the food, mostly cooked in clay pots, impossibly comforting. [Eater 38 Member]
  • Get the Skate Fish...its incredible
  • Go to the cellar below Peasant and have the Roast chicken.
  • Great place!
  • The ambiance was truly amazing if you are looking for a rustic, chic Italian spot. Loved the service. Their specialty is anything cooked in their specialty oven. Bream fish was good and light.
  • Free unlimited olives? Yes please.
  • Passersby are unlikely to stumble upon this charming below-street-level venue, making it a best-kept secret. Apart from its wonderfully extensive wine list, the menu draws from the restaurant upstairs
  • Romantic wood-oven Italian in a cool-kid downtown space, with terrific grilled meats and bright salads. Also, seriously great offal.
  • get the octopus, yeah. one of my absolute favs. but don't leave without also getting the suckling pig. some parts soft, some parts crispy, every part made for you
  • Great rustic Tuscan dinner, as always.
  • just chill at the bar with a glass of wine and munch on the olives and breadsticks.
  • Delicous italian restaurant. Gnocchi was great & also their pizzas are amazing!
  • If you haven't dined at this Elizabeth Street charmer in a while, it's time for a revisit. The wood-fired lamb and the gnocchi with morels are perennial favorites.
  • Peasant made me feel like I stepped out of NYC into a little rustic Italian town. With the wood oven in the back cooking all your dishes, to the exposed brick this is a place to dine and enjoy.
  • Pro-tip: if the restaurant is packed, walk outside and down the stairs on the left to give their cellar a try. Same menu and first-come, first-served.
  • Go downstairs Friday nights! Joel and Mauricio run the show down there. They serve delicious Italian dishes, well priced wines by the glass, and carafes. Get the white pizza!!
  • Everything is cooked in a wood burning oven, need I say more? Delectable. -Kelly Liken, Top Chef
