Inspired by the rustic cuisine of Rome’s distinct neighborhoods, Maialino is a trattoria reimagined for present day New York City, overlooking Gramercy Park. Chef Nick Anderer’s thoughtful Italian cuisine blends his passion for the Roman food tradition with a commitment to our local family of farmers and purveyors.

The restaurant is open continuously throughout the day, serving breakfast, lunch, weekend brunch, dinner, and late night, as well as to-go coffee.
