Ridiculously Awesome

First, please let me commend the absolutely fantastic and friendly staff. Cynthia and Carlos behind the bar, every waiter that chatted with us by the service bar, the maitre'd, the guy with the glasses whose card I lost...(sorry!) we really felt so welcomed and comfortable. Then the food. Oh goodness. We got the carmelized fennel and the lentil and corn vegetable appetizers and both were fantastic. Then we got the grilled calamari salad and the pasta carbonera which were both fantastic. Then we got a round of drinks and the meringue cake on the house. Really? Love you guys so hard. The whiskey mash is fantastic, by the way... DEFINITELY going back. DEFINITELY bringing family and friends back with us. Thank you for a great night on the town.

As we entered into this small restaurant we would have never thought that it would be such a delightful and beautiful one! our server was very polite and attentive, we ordered a pesto pasta (I forgot the name but I'm sure it was tagliatelle). Im making a reservation right now for when we arrive in august!

Went with friends during restaurant week. We all ordered off the prix fixe menu - $35 got you an appetizer, an entree, and dessert. A bit pricey, but overall a very nice restaurant.

Every time we're in the City, we go to Trattoria dell'Arte. We never get tired of the fabulous food, convenient location, and interesting clientele.

Quality and Location have a High Price

This apparent modest trattoria actually has the highest quality food, albeit at high prices. The overall package of food, location, ambience is wonderful and it is a perfect pre-Carnegie concert spot, but reserve early.

Great after theatre spot. Wonderful variety at antipasti bar. Take your pick or have the waiter fix a nice plate for you. Good seafood selection, and nice wine selection.

A reliable Italian eatery - prepare to spend plenty of lires

This is one of those places people remember and it's apt to be crowded. It's a pleaser for tourists and New Yorkers alike, nothing extraordinary but eminently reliable. It's costly; plan to spend around $65 for dinner. It's large and you're greeted by an enormous table of cold antipasto, which you can hand pick and eat as an appetizer or main course. To me things tend to taste a bit less grand than they look. The veal parmigiana is almost as big as the antipasto table and is nicely done. It's a large menu, an easy place for a large group. If weather is good and you have time, this works as a pre-theater spot.
