    Get the Fusilli Norcina Sausage & Parsley! It's so good! The prices are very affordable and it's a super cozy atmosphere.

    Cute back patio (got cold towards end of meal tho). Good for dates. Nice variety on the menu. Fettuccine w/ chicken & mushrooms was good - cooked al dente. Also try the calamari & fried zucchini.

    Great date spot or to catch up with friends. Definitely reserve in their garden if you can! Love that it's so close to the high line and fairly inexpensive for the city!

    Got the antipasto misto, ravioli with bolegnese and veal scallopine - all were delicious. My only complaint was the courses came out quickly - order slowly if you don't want to eat dinner in 40 min!

    Perfect spot for a late pasta dinner, especially if you can sit in the garden. Loved the pappardelle with sausage in spicy tomato sauce.

    Great atmosphere at this Italian spot. Ask for a seat in the garden in the back. It's covered even when it's cold.

    Crispy zucchini with garlic confit and fire roasted cherry tomatoes is amazing! Penne ala vodka also very solid. And as other tips said, very reasonable prices!

    Very charming Italian place. Great place to take a date: romantic lighting, nice ambiance, and delicious food that doesn't cost very much. Their Valentine's Day prix fixe was AMAZING.

    Old school Italian at old school prices! Hands down fav dinner spot in Chelsea. Try the gnocchi or the black fettuccini (if they have it as a special).

    Peaceful courtyard getaway hidden in the back of the restaurant. Some of the best sautéed calamari this Italian has had....

    Lunch special is a steal. Menu says 1/2 panini and 1/2 soup but they looked full size to me.

    Great price and decor but the food falls short. Neither authentic nor classic Italian-American. Undercooked pasta (not al dente) but their tomato sauce was actually pretty good.

    Ravioli bolognese and the vodka sauce were delicious. Great prices too

    If you have to order one sandwich from Pepe Gallo make sure it's "The Spurr" (chicken, avocado and bacon in a hero). Read more
