Village Voice's Description
Owned by the same fellas who own two Alfredo of Romes--one here and one in Rome--Trattoria Cinque ("Bistro Five") is the latest of several boites to try to reproduce the exalted cuisine of Italy's capital. It partly succeeds. Though the cooking is consistently good, and the portions generous, the place hedges its bets by offering food from all over Italy, throwing in some Italian-American stuff, too, as if we wouldn't realize what they were up to. That said, the pastas are the best things on the menu, including paccheri carbonara (short, tubular noodles) and ricotta dumplings called malfatti. The gorgonzola and pear pizza makes a super starter, and tastes much better than its sounds.
Tips from foursquare

Gorgonzola, pear, and truffle oil pizza. Try it.
Wow, amazing atmosphere and perfect, friendly service in Tribeca. Super classy. Did brunch here, but would be great for a hot dinner date...wide range of occasions. Brunch: try the signature bloody ma
I agree with the others' tip: order the Gorgonzola, pear & truffle oil pizza. Perfect for a share! The beef short ribs-stuffed ravioli wasn't their best, but still a nice dish!
Best brunch in TriBeCa/the world. Unlimited cocktails and the porchetta Benedict is incredible. Don't get anything else. Ever.
