Bar Pisellino

On a beautiful summery day last weekend, we went with friends-that-are-family to Bar Pisellino, a bar that I had read about and was so excited to try out. If you know me, I have been obsessed with Aperol Spritzes for the past 12 months, and Bar Pisellino not only serves them, but has them on TAP. YUP — Aperol ON DRAFT.


Nothing better than summer nights in Manhattan….especially with epic and gorgeous skies as documented by @ken.natori

Bar Pisellino opened up this past month by James Beard Foundation Best New York City Chefs Jody Williams and Rita Sodi. They own Buvette, I Sodi, Via Carota, and now Bar Pisellino. All four restaurants are within a three-block West Village radius. A big fan of Buvette, I knew that I would not be disappointed with Bar Pisellino. Sure enough, the atmosphere, drinks, and vibe were great and left me so happy that we went.


Located on the corner, there are only small tables to grab a drink and snack. NOTE this is not a restaurant where you can eat a full meal.

The tables are small.

Very Italian, they serve both oranges and olives with the spritzes, depending on what direction you want to take the drink.

Basically, aperol spritzes are capri suns for adults — and WHAT’S NOT TO LOVE?

And of course, the color is mesmerizing. And its light, refreshing, low in alcohol, and oh so delicious.

Now that it is summer, this is my go-to drink.

Perfect table.


I can’t wait to return to Bar Pisellino — definitely worth going to before or after dinner to have a nice evening drink! If you live uptown, it is worth trekking down to the West Village and spending an hour there.

  1. I’ve been looking for a new place to grab drinks. Looks like I’ve found a winner!

  2. For anyone looking for a cheap alternative to Uber or cab services, I have stumbled upon a service that gives some amazing rates. I booked a ride recently using and got a much better deal than I usually do with the other guys. I literally had to call the company up because I thought there was a mistake but it turns out it was correct. The customer service rep explained to me that their non-profit company has revolutionized the way rides are booked, allowing for better rates than the rest of the market. Best part about it is that they offer any type of car, from sedans to party and coach buses. So if you’re trying to book a ride, I highly recommend their service and just wanted to give you all a heads up on this great deal.
