    For a reliably excellent and cheap date night, Fiat Cafe always hits the spot. All of the pastas are outstanding and the wine bottles only cost around $20 each. Read about it on WinstonWanders below!! Read more

    Food tastes like dinner at a friend's. Not your mom's but your friend's mom's cooking. I adore it here. So quaint & perfect in every way. Spinach omelet w goat cheese is phenomenal. + toast and bacon.

    Panini with the vegetables and pesto is fantastic. Tons of flavor, delicious, filling, not too much. Vibe is cute without being inauthentic. I really want to come back for brunch, looks incredible

    Cosy and inviting, we had a very tasty breakfast here (salmon bagel and mushroom-asiago omelette). Friendly service, very tasty food and good coffee. Cash only - ATM across the street.

    It's a very cute place. There is akways a big french circle. It's familiar. The food is great: Granola, salads, especially the chicken sandwich(awarded), bred pudding and the big pancakes with fruits!

    Everything is delicious! Save room for dessert too the Tiramisu is the best I've had in a long time and the Cappuccino was so good it was difficult to put down.

    I started my meal at Fiat with an order of penne, and it was great! Fortunately for me, there was a large menu so I followed that up with a chicken sandwich, which is one of the best in NYC! GO NOW

    You can easily split a sandwich and salad at this great lunch spot in soho. Cash only and small, but overall excellent place.

    Shhh don't tell about this great deal. Casual, hip scene and solid Italian dishes (I like the tricolore salad), and you'll think the prices are a typo.

    My go-to neighborhood cafe that has wifi. Super chill, no frills, tasty French-Italian cuisine, very inexpensive. Very European owner who always has friends over. Come here for a late night cap!

    The sandwiches come with a little salad in the to-go container. If was a fun bonus/took away my guilt of not ordering one in the first place.

    Laugh in the face of the tourists you'll pass waiting in line at Lombardi's and stroll into the tiny Fiat for some yummy pasta or panini. Tasty brunch! Cash only.

    Lunch delivery: food arrived in half an hour yay! Decent penne all vodka but the broccoli rabe was a sad mix of fresh and old stems/leaves, leaving a literal and figurative bad taste in our mouths.
