One Fifth review image

One Fifth

One Fifth is a cozy Italian restaurant just steps away from Washington Square Park, and it feels very much like the kind of place where NYU faculty and parents visiting from out of town would go for a dinner that’s “nice” but not fancy. The staff describes the food as Italian tapas, and that’s fairly accurate. We recommend ordering a lot from the antipasti section, which is filled with gems like sesame buns stuffed with lamb mortadella and the luscious duck in a jar. The pinsas are great for bulking out a shared order, but we recommend skipping pastas and mains so you can save room for the desserts. The gelato is made in house, and it's very good.
