I was looking for something to eat close to where we'd be visiting the Friends building to save us a subway hop, and just happened to see this spot on the map. It's a tiny little shop with only about 5 seats inside, but OMG, this place is packed with flavor!!! My husband and I both got the Prosciutto de... More

I happen to be lucky enough to work 3 blocks away from this spot. I come here about 3-4 times a month. The sandwiches here are the best I have had in nyc. You can just taste the freshness in all the ingredients; from the ripe plum tomatoes, to the freshly cut cured meats, to the soft fresh mozzarella cheese,... More

If you're in the West Village near Hudson st, you should definitely visit Sanpanino for your sandwich. There's a lot to choose and not matter your choice, it's incredibly tasty. Recommended!

You have to have their prosciutto de parma panini. All deliciously fresh ingredients from the prosciutto, soft mozzarella, & basil leaves topped basil vinegar dressing to the crusted Italian bread warmed in the oven. It is the best. Very generous size too. I can't go in there and order any thing else because it is so delicious. It is only... More

Was driving around the West Village looking for a place to eat. Saw this place and went in. The first thing you notice is the size of the place, not very big at all. The next thing you notice is the quality ingredients and cleanliness. The menu selections all looked appetizing but i opted for the #3, Grande something or... More

Best sandwich shop in the west village. Delicious prosciutto, fresh mozzarella. Pair with their fresh lemonade and cape cod potato chips and you've got a great lunch to take to the park on the hudson.

Staying in West Village

Neighbourhood Profile
West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the West Village is one of the city’s most coveted addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture, this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan. Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you stroll down elegant narrow streets with beautiful brownstones. When you need a break, you can always stop in at one of the many quaint eateries or cafes to soak in the atmosphere, or head to the western edge of the neighborhood to enjoy magnificent waterfront views while taking a leisurely walk in Hudson River Park.
