Fagiolini is the quintessential small, neighborhood Italian restaurant to seek out if you crave a low key experience at affordable prices and without hype and hoopla.
The warm atmosphere downstairs is a long comfortable room with clothed tables, covered with butcher paper, votive candles, and attractive mirrors and colorful posters hung on the walls. Service is a real plus: warm and guiding, but not pushy. All this and a delightful menu are a few of the reasons it has become quite a mainstay in the neighborhood. Since 1986, customers have been returning to sample the different Italian dishes that make up the Fagiolini menu.
The restaurant serves only beer and wine from a friendly list with inexpensive wines by the glass or quartino and compatible bottles ranging from $28 to $49. The food-value is as excellent as it is unpretentious and delicious. Everything is homemade.
The upstairs room can host a private event for up to 35 people, as it did on the night of our visit. We took a quick look and can see why. It is a terrific space for business functions as well as events or special dinners.
Make no mistake, Fagiolin’s downstairs venue is discovered and was a packed restaurant on that night as well. So reserve. Suggestions from the menu include terrific thin crusted pizza (try it with carmelized onions and mushrooms) Fresh Mozzarella, deep-fried or Fried Calamari with marinara or diavolo sauce. Pastas like Angel hair pasta with fresh clams, garlic and virgin oil. (our personal favorite) or “Little Ears” of pasta with broccoli, mushrooms, zucchini, plum tomatoes shine, as do Italian-American favorites such as two versions of lasagna (quite the rage these days) are yummy.
And entrees such as a fine Tuscan Chicken Meatloaf: Served with a wild mushroom sauce & whipped potatoes, veal Marsala or fresh grilled Atlantic salmon are perfect. Save room for a delicious dessert, like cheesecake or tartuffo at FAGIOLINI,
334 Lexington Avenue (btw 39th and 40th) Streets. You’ll like the experience.
