Tarallucci e Vino is a cafe and wine bar with four locations in New York City. Serving pastries, paninis, and cappuccinos by day and a full dinner menu with 20 types of wine by night, Tarallucci has certainly made a name for itself as a popular Italian cafe since its inception in 2001.
The East Village location is small and cozy. Counter seating runs around the perimeter of the interior, with big windows that look out to 1st Avenue and 10th Street, perfect for New York City people-watching.
The cafe has been described as the "opposite of trendy" and we have to agree! We can't help but think our Crystal Minaret pendant lights above the bar have something to do with the unassuming vibe. The Minaret pendant light emerges as a modern tribute to a traditional shape seen far back in ancient, religious architecture. Not flashy, but still impeccably timeless, the Minaret pendant light adds to Tarallucci e Vino's modest and casual wine bar aesthetic.
