Garden dining and GOOD FOOD in West Village
I haven't been to Vittorio Cucina, but I've been to both Cafe Asean and Grove. Choosing between them really depends on what you want. Grove is fairly classic French food. When I ate there, it was competent, not spectacular, but that may be because it was Valentine's Day. I'd give them another chance. Cafe Asean is Southeast Asian. It's less expensive than Grove (no entrees above $15, several for $10-$12) and more informal. It also has very good food.
