Village Voice's Description
An awesome wine list greets you at this Mario Batali-style modern Italian spot, and many of the best bottles are also available in quartino (one-third bottle) portions. By sharing courses, one may easily pursue the three-course meal that is standard in Italy, and our recommendations are as follows: appetizer;truffled polenta with a runny egg on top; primo;chicken liver ravioli in a dark fragrant sauce; secondo;lamb cutlet served Milanese-style, breaded and fried with an arugula salad heaped on top. As a general rule, pastas trump the other two courses. The interior is exactly what you'd expect on Avenue B.
Barbone is one of the best Italian restaurants in NYC. It's a tiny neighborhood joint that serves great food at great prices. Was there with consulting colleagues and we chatted with the owner and he rolled out a 4-course prix fixe for us at a great price.

Barbone is one of the best Italian restaurants in NYC. It's a tiny neighborhood joint that serves great food at great prices. Was there with consulting colleagues and we chatted with the owner and he rolled out a 4-course prix fixe for us at a great price. The beet-gorgonzola ravioli (see pic) will be among the best ravioli you will eat anywhere, and the pastas and seasonal meat dishes (like osso buco) are also outstanding. Barbone has superb service; a decent wine list; a low-key vibe (no pretension); and accommodates reservations far easier than the more famous (hard to get into) Italian restaurants in NYC. Highly recommended for dinner with friends.
Tips from foursquare
Go to Barbone (13th and B?) and order up off the 5-course tasting menu ($35!). Sit in the garden if you can.
One of NYC’s best-kept secrets. Much more appropriate for Cesare’s forbidden love than Juan’s weekly woman.
5-course homemade pasta tasting menu for $35 = unbelievable! Portions are big and everything I've ever had here has been amazing. Ask for a table in the outdoor area in the spring/summer.
Barbone is best described as italian soul cooking
Incredible homemade pasta and the best prices for authentic italian in the hood.
