Reader report: Tarallucci e Vino has closed

After more than 20 years on the NW corner of 10th Street and First Avenue, Tarallucci e Vino has shut its doors. 

Workers were spotted clearing out the space yesterday. A worker confirmed that Sunday was the last day in business for the all-day cafe-restaurant ...
We reached out for more information. 

The other locations (including the UWS, NoMad and Union Square) remain open. 

Tarallucci e Vino owner Luca Di Pietro, his wife Kate and daughter Isabella launched the Feed the Frontlines NYC initiative at the start of the pandemic to feed New Yorkers in need and help restaurant workers stay employed.

Plywood comes down at under-renovation Tarallucci e Vino



Back on Friday we noted that Tarallucci e Vino remained behind the renovation plywood on First Avenue and 10th Street during renovations... work was apparently a little behind schedule.

However, this past weekend, EVG regular Lola Sáenz shared these photos of the space after workers removed the plywood.



Still no word on a reopening date. The cafe, which opened in 2001, has been out of service since February.

UPDATED: The cafe reopened on June 12.

Tarallucci e Vino East Village remains closed for renovations



Tarallucci e Vino remains behind plywood on First Avenue and 10th Street ... the cafe closed in mid-February for renovations. Per the sign on the door at the time: "After 16 great years ... it's time to spruce things up a bit."

This Tarallucci e Vino, the first in NYC (there are now five locations total), was to be back in action by the end of March.

The cafe's website now states they will reopen in the spring. (Well, there's still officially about two weeks left of that season.)

Anyway, some regulars are apparently getting restless for the return. Several weeks ago, regulars L and J wrote a message on the construction door: "You were supposed to reopen at the end of March. It's May 10th. What gives?"

Gutting Tarallucci e Vino

Tarallucci e Vino on 10th Street at First Avenue is currently closed (as of Monday) for a renovation.

As the sign on the Italian cafe notes: "After 16 great years ... it's time to spruce things up a bit."

Based on this glance inside the space yesterday, it appears to be more than a sprucing up, which suggests a coat of paint and some new chairs ...



The owners expect to be back in service by the end of March.

Thanks to Lola Sāenz for the photo!

Tarallucci e Vino closed through March for renovations on 1st Avenue



Papered windows and a sign greeted patrons yesterday at Tarallucci e Vino on First Avenue at 10th Street...



Per the signage at the Italian cafe: "After 16 great years ... it's time to spruce things up a bit."

The original Tarallucci e Vino (there are now five locations total in the city) expects to reopen by the end of March.

Thanks to Steven for the photos!
