Trattoria One Fifth is a bustling Italian restaurant and bar in NYC's Greenwich Village. Our menu is filled with handmade pastas, artisanal pizzas, and a rotating selection of seasonal vegetables, entrees and desserts. It's all served alongside thoughtfully-crafted cocktails and a well-curated wine list.
Restaurants have been in near-continuous operation at this iconic New York City address since 1927 and we're happy to keep the tradition going.
Part of Chef Marc Forgione’s Respect Hospitality Group, Trattoria One Fifth is the lively younger sibling to sister restaurants Peasant and Restaurant Marc Forgione. Like all of his restaurants, Trattoria One Fifth gives the same careful attention to ingredients and service, helping to make it one of NYC's best Italian restaurants.
One Fifth Avenue is an address rich in history including its many restaurant tenants over the years. We're thrilled to carry on the tradition with Italian favorite Trattoria One Fifth.
At the end of WWII as the homecoming parade of troops marched down Fifth Avenue patrons of the Number One Bar in Greenwich Village toasted with martinis on the sidewalk.
For decades, the first floor of One Fifth has housed a restaurant. In the ’30s, there was the supper club, Number One Bar that launched the careers of Dorothy Lamour and Paul Lynde. In the early 70’s, restaurateur Patricia Murphy, opened a branch of her “Candlelight Restaurant” here. By 1976, George Schwarz and his wife, Kiki Kogelnik, opened One Fifth, where brothers Keith and Brian McNally worked before they went on to open the Odeon.
Throughout the ’90s, Alfred Portale, the celebrated chef of Gotham Bar & Grill, ran a seafood restaurant, named One Fifth Avenue. That was later followed by Vince and Linda, where Anthony Bourdain ran the kitchen. Otto Enoteca e Pizzeria opened in 2003 and was a mainstay in the neighborhood for close to 20 years.
Now Trattoria One Fifth, one of NYC's favorite Italian spots, proudly keeps the story going.
The food at Trattoria One Fifth draws influence from Chef Marc Forgione's family with a menu that nods to both Italian traditions and the best of New York, including local ingredients from the nearby Union Square Greenmarket. Chef Marc's special pizza dough, celebrated as some of the best in NYC, integrates the structure and crunch of a NY slice with the focus on technique and ingredients of Neapolitan style. Pizzas share the spotlight with housemade pastas, seasonal vegetables and entrees and an incredible dessert menu from Chef Jami Callao full of housemade gelatos, seasonal tarts, and lots more.View Menus
