Village Voice's Description

Sired by Bobo, Rosemary's is a Village restaurant that represents the evolution of the Italian menu in the city over the last few decades, a period from which we emerged from a world of red-sauced pastas and basketball-size meatballs like a newborn babe. The house-made charcuterie--capacolla and testa (head cheese)--are particularly fine, and so is the so-called octopus salami, but go right to the pastas for the most perfect evocation of the restaurant’s gastronomic approach. There you'll find a spaghetti carbonara rich with guanciale and cream, and an orecchiette ("little ears") bombed with crumbly sausage and braised greens. The high-ceilinged premises boasts a roof garden from which many of the herbs used in cooking are harvested. Go very early or late to avoid long waits for a table.

    Awful. Stay Away!
    Staff was immature, young, and could care less about your service.
    Would not recommend this place.
    Long wait! Was told the wait would be 20 minutes, ended up waiting longer than an hour. Hostess never checked with us.
    Place was not even that busy. Obviously, they are slipping.
    Go elsewhere.

    There is a 40-bottle list of Italian wines, all available for $40. The sommelier also curates a reserved wine list for something a little more special. Via CityEats.com

    $40 flat rate bottles, great small apps (try the homemade mozzarella) but the vibe is why you come. Don't forget to check out the roof garden

    No tip needed. Order everything. My wife calls it the Italian version of ABC Kitchen. Farm-to-table deliciousness.

  • Stacy F. on 07/30/12

    Be sure to visit the garden upstairs, most of the veggies and herbs used in the dishes are grown there. Yum! Oh and $40 bottles of wine, can't beat that.

    Eat this: Octopus “salami,” house-cured capocollo, eggplant caponata, focaccia with stracchino, cavatelli with peas and ricotta, carne misti, acqua pazza
