Looking for a cheap, quiet dinner in the West Village? Then you are going to hate this place. We happen to like it, especially for the amazing porterhouse for two - but you have to know what you’re getting into. The restaurant is always loud and packed, especially as the week goes on.
This is a great way to kick off a dinner at Morandi - with salty fried things to make you drink your wine faster. Sure, you will find the typical calamari rings in there, but there are also shrimp with their head still on and little whole fish that have been cross sectioned. It’s all tasty.
A popular grilled octopus starter with celery and olives. This is good, but be warned - it’s a small portion, and it will cost you eighteen bucks.
We like our pastas simple, especially when it’s handmade. This is a great, basic dish of spaghetti with lemon and parmesan.
Meet our favorite thing on the menu at Morandi. This dry aged porterhouse for two is ridiculous.
Yes, it’s a breakfast pizza, and you need it. It consists of a sunny side egg and pancetta atop a perfect oblong pizza crust. Worth the every penny of the thirteen dollar price tag.
