Peasant in the Village?

Has anyone been to this place? How is it? We're looking to organize an NYU dinner after a lecture and this was recommended to us. We would like an Italian place, not too noisy. Does this work?
went to Peasant last night. Food is good as it is most times however I must say that the service there is getting quite tired. It seems as if they are really lamenting the menu translation thing.
Frankie is quite correct. The menu translation thing was a gimmick that was fun for a while. They should give it up now, because the waitstaff are fed up with it. And it shows.
Doesn't effect the food, which is excellent. And the space is very cool.
peasant is one of my favorite places. it's delicious and the atmosphere is very nice with a brick oven in the bank and concrete floors, and it all feels very open and airy. the food is great; i've never had anything disappointing. i agree with the whole recitation/translation of the menu thing. the last time i was there, our waiter read it so incredibly fast with a very jaded look on his face.
