When Lambrusco is on a menu, always order it. Specifically here.
by Andrew H.
The breakfast at Maialono is great. Cappuccino is excellent and I alternate between the Contadino and the Currant Pecan Granola with Yogurt and Fruit
by Fred W.
A cheese plate: ask about it.

Being one of Danny Meyer's several restaurants in the city, you can be sure to get great food and amazing service. It's casual for an upscale restaurant so you get quality food without all the fuss.

Food is pretty good; but on the saltier side - all relative i guess
by Calvin D.
Please get a side of bacon with your breakfast or brunch.

Grub Street off-menu dish: Gluten-Free Pasta. "Chef Nick Anderer's kitchen always has a few gluten-free pastas available and can pair any of them with whatever sauces their customers might want."
Stop by the barista's area & grab a Counter Culture cold brew to go! Delicious!
by Lisa G.
Breakfast: Cacio e Pepe or yogurt/granola and OJ. Lunch: Bombolotti and Lambrusco. Dinner: Chicken special or Bolognese and a Marsiliano. At bar, get Italian Greyhound; tip Dave and Steve extra.

I have flown across the country to eat in NYC and this is where I came to brunch. Favorites: scrambled eggs and ricotta pancakes. Both.

Get the salt crusted baked fish (think its a cod?) and a pasta to share
by Sarah L.
The design scheme recalls a Roman trattoria (glass cases enclose meats and cheeses), all set by a park that’s a visual treat any season.
by Shermans Travel
Crostini Misti is delicious - and big enough for really sharing
by Anne Mai B.
Their flour-less chocolate cake with buttermilk ice cream is so amazing. Don't leave without trying!!!
by Kitman L.

Amazing handmade pasta, very rich dishes.
Summer eggs contadino
by eva c.
contadino eggs are my favorite: poached eggs with an assortment of local veggies
by eva c.
One of my favorite eat-at-the-bar spots. You will meet other foodies and enjoy excellent glasses of wine and fine, rustic Italian dishes.
Scrambled eggs cacio e pepe - super tasty. Maialino Contadino (poached eggs with market veg) fresh and delicious. One of the few places that that doesn't over poach their eggs.
by lisa l.
Try the Contadino - Poached eggs over summer vegetables? Yes please. #Foodie (via @Foodspotting)
by Andy E.
A cozy (though actually quite spacious) spot for brunch. Try their soft-scrambled eggs with pecorino and black pepper! (Tip: Check out the bathroom in the hotel lobby. Very cool.)
The best spaghetti and pasta I have ever had. Great wine selection as well.
by Kim D.
Torta di Olio d'Oliva (olive oil cake) is a MUST!!
by Jo R.
While mostly known for dinner, brunch is great, too. Try the sweet ricotta pancakes ($15) and the delicious pork sausages ($7).
by The Food Sluts
Taste: Bucatini all’Amatriciana, oxtails, veal T-bone or braised lamb with onions, sformato di ricotta. Secret -> Maialino serves Italian-themed breakfast, featuring ricotta pancakes, and poached eggs
Try the Cappuccino (via @Foodspotting)
