Da Tommy Osteria is a brand new, casual Italian spot in the West Village that you are going to fall in love with.
Occupying the space that used to be Abbotegga, Da Tommy Osteria is on its way to carving a niche for itself with its truly heart warming rustic menu and cozy tavern feel.
Chef Alfio Longo ( ex Circo) is oversees the kitchen which offers modern takes on classic Italian tavern fare. All the food here feels familiar but yet distinguishes itself in its simple and subtle tastes.
Some of my favorites of the evening were the “Zucchini Cake, Truffle Fondue” – a rather unusual dish and the “Verdure Pizzette” a 10” pizza, thin crust made w/ marinara, goat cheese and seasonal veggies.
The pastas here are a must try. Many of them are made in-house and are served perfectly al dente. The “Trofie al Pesto” is an award-winning Genovese-style pesto by Chef Alfio Longo and is a must try dish.
The menu at Da Tommy Osteria is ideal for sharing plates which pair beautifully with an extensive cocktail & Italian wine list. I have a feeling that Da Tommy Osteria will soon become a neighborhood favorite in the West Village.
