IL Bagatto..LES Diamond in the Rough

Trying to make a reservation at 12:00pm on a Saturday for the same evening is never that simple in Manhattan. But then again living in arguably the biggest city in the world has its advantages…We have plenty of restaurants to choose from. So after being shut down at a few spots that were booked up, I called upon my good friends Oliver and Taryn for some suggestions. Independently of each other (which is strange considering they are married) both suggested Il Bagatto on the Lower East Side.

I had no problem locking down a reservation and my night was planned.

Il Bagatto is a cute and  cozy place, those adjactives are actually perfect ways to describe this Trattoria. Before you are seated in the close but comfortable upstairs dining area , you are led to the downstairs bar, greeted by a massive bowl of homemade Sangria and a DJ playing classic soul and some old school hip-hop. The lighting is certainly very date friendly , not too dark and definitly not too bright, lots of candles , interesting artwork , family photos etc….

The menu has all the standards of a Roman Trattoria, I had an excellent chicken in a rich white sauce, with brushetta appetizer.

But there is a very home like quality to the restaurant. The Service was excellent and the staff could not have been friendlier. If you feel like trooping to 2nd Street Between A & B. Il Bagatto is worth the trip.

  1. The first rule in choosing the right diamond stud earrings for you is to make sure they match your look. If you have a broader face you’ll probably want to go with princess cut diamond. If your face is thinner you’ll look best with round cut diamond studs, The key to the perfect setting is balance .
    There are many options you can select in a large number of cut, that can be to obtain Diamond stud Earrings. The shape of the earring depends on the cut of the diamond. Round earrings are made with a round cut. Emerald cuts are square whilst tear drop cuts are pear shaped.
