Summary: Authentic Italian eats in a rustic setting.

Via Carota offers a slice of Tuscany in its rustic West Village location with traditional Italian cuisine and a lively atmosphere. The restaurant boasts a no-reservations policy and communal dining, inviting a mix of locals and international diners. The menu, curated by chefs Jody Williams and Rita Sodi, changes monthly to showcase seasonal ingredients, but always includes staples like the hand-chopped beef 'Via Carota Svizzerena.'
