I took my boyfriend to L'artusi for his birthday and it was more than perfect!! The hostess was so nice and accomodating, we had a reservation for 9pm, only waited 10 minutes or so, and were seated upstairs which is decorated beautifully! The service was impeccable and the food was beyond delicious! The pasta dishes are the perfect size and leave you feeling completely satisfied. From the Autumn Salad, to the mushroom penne, to the chocolate bardino, I couldn't have asked for a better time..Cannot wait to go back!

This place rocks! Went there with a party of six and had a fantastic dinner. Everything on the menu is awesome! Go with a big group to try all the apps and you can't go wrong with any of the pasta entrees. Recession priced ! Take a date and eat at the bar! Great experience!

critic's pick, yet Platt destroys it. Try it -- if you can get a reservation you won't forget L'Artusi. A very original new italian.

Yet Platt doesn't have a good thing to say about L'Artusi. I stopped listening to Mr. Platt years ago. He seems to have some sort personal vendetta against many of NY's best restaurants. I love LArtusi, and I believe that the loyal fans (not just one critic) of this restaurant speak volumes about the quality of the food. Mr. Thomson's dishes are superb....the flavors "pop", never too spicy, always interesting, satisfying, yet never heavy. Atmosphere is fun, the staff beautiful and friendly. I could eat here every night,

Upbeat

Best about L'Artusi is the upbeat scene that also manages laid back-ness. It's fun for a weekend night with a group, and you can dine at the bar with a friend for a more casual experience. You can go light or heavy, and I haven't had a bad dish. The brussel sprouts were amazing although they might have taken them off the menu. I do need to be in the mood for a louder, slightly trendy west village scene to go, but it is always fun and the food is fab.

Adam is often wrong, he brings his own prejudice regarding chefs and also brings his mood to each review, as anyone who has followed him for a while knows. He must have had a bad few weeks with the wife or something while trying this place out. I went tonight based on the recco of friends who said he was dead wrong, and it was a really, really solid restaurant. I had the asparagus with poached egg and then the quail and the meal was in the top 5 I've had all year. Everyone loved their food and some in our party had been multiple times and had a great meal each time. Thankfully, Platypus was not able to ruin this restaurant's business as much as would have liked; the place was full on a Sunday night. And no I don't work at this restaurant and I'm not affiliated with it in any way. It was delicious. Go.

I love dell'anima and was excited to try this new place... and it is amazing. To my surprise, I like it even better than its sister! The scallop and tune crudos are perfect, and the pasta and fish dishes are spectacular. The cavatelli is perfectly cooked, and the gnudi melt in your mouth. There was a lobster/monk fish dish that our table fought over it was so good. Oh, and do not forget to leave room for dessert - the olive oil cake is a must! Even though we had to wait a while because we did not have a reservation, the staff was nice and apologetic, helping us pick a delicious wine and keeping us informed on the time of the wait. There was a great energy there too - the crowd ranged in age, but was vibrant and enhanced the great vibe sent out by the open kitchen and staff. I would like a reservation next time I go back, but since I will be going back often, I will probably find myself waiting...a wait that is well worth it!!!

The place is modern, great atmosphere, bit crowded but good vibe. Menu not too overwheling but with particular plates, also recalling some very traditional and local italian ingredients. (orecchiette, pizzoccheri, polenta on the menu! wow!). Ok wine list. Watch out also for the cheese bar. Service also very cordial. Can't wait to go back.

L'Artusi is a gem on a quiet block. Located on W. Tenth between Hudson and Bleeker, this wonderful restaurant modestly posts a menu in the window, but has no sign or bright lights. Memorize the address! There should be no modesty about the food: it is magnificent. Try the orrechiette with bitter greens and sausage, the delicata with sage butter, pizzocheri with brussels sprouts. These are small plates and you can wander flexibly throughout the menu. If the octopus appears somewhere on the menu, try it. And don't forget dessert. The olive oil cake was unsurpassed, light in texture and a wonderful delicate flavor. The budoni and cranberry crostini also received raves from everyone who got a taste. L'Artusi has no need for modesty! Know it for the quality of the food, the wonderful wine selection, and the attentive and competent service.
