Foursquare Tips

  • The veal parmigiana was featured on the food network's, "the best thing I ever ate" by Emril
  • Try the in city
  • Make sure you have a chat with Jasper and ask him about his 45 years at the place and the 100 year old bar!
  • Great chicken parm! Bill Murray was there!
  • My family has been coming to this restaurant for 40 years. The eggplant parm can't be beat!
  • Get the orrechiette pasta with minced sausage & brocoli di rabe, diced tomatoes & garlic-- you will not regret it
  • Bocce ball indoor court and unbelievable food!! Best arrabiata, tiramisu, and cappuccino I've had in a while
  • Veal Parmigiana was on the Best Thing I Ever Ate
  • Ask Jasper (at the bar) about the snow white joke!
  • Old skool - by far the best Italian restaurant in NYC!
  • Sleepy Italian restaurant hosts an indoor Bocce court in the middle of the restaurant. When making a reservation, reserve one of the red and white checked tables adjacent to the court.
  • The proprieter is very rude, but the bartender was great!
  • I started coming here because my parents loved it in the 70s, and it still holds that same charm. While there is great bocce to participate in, the best part is the food. I love the veal piccatta.
  • I have been eating at Il Vagabondo for 25 years now. Very little change in all that time. Great Osso Bucco and Gnocchi only your Italian grandma can make. Great drinks too!
  • Gnocchi! Osso Bucho
  • Chicken Parm it's tastes so good
  • Sit at the cozy bar or play bocce ball while you wait for your table. Get the veal parm or gnocchi. Calm and quiet ambiance.
  • Indoor bocce court! And they have a delicious bocce ball ice cream. UES gem!
  • you may be here for the food, but don't sleep on the bocce court. it's from 1910 and wildly uneven, but fantastic fun after a bottle of wine.
  • Bocci is lots of fun. Very good red sauce Italian
