A word from Del Posto
Diners should be aware there is not an a la carte menu for parties of 5 and larger. A 5 course Il Menu Del Posto and an 8 course Captain's menu are available for these parties.

Del Posto respectfully requests that gentlemen refrain from wearing shorts, sandals, sleeveless shirts, and baseball caps. Most men choose to wear jackets, but jackets are not required.


Del Posto is the first Italian restaurant in almost 40 years to be awarded 4 stars from the New York Times. Del Posto is the ultimate expression of what an Italian restaurant should be. We can best be described as an evolution of cuisines, menus, service, and ambiance that have characterized the history of the Italian dining experience in this country. Celebrate Italian viticulture with Del Posto's Wine Director Jeff Porter, on Saturdays from 1pm to 2pm. 5 wines for $5, now through Labor Day.

Diner Reviews
  • "Everything about our experience at Del Posto was spectacular: each course was magnificent; gluten-free options are amazing; service is knowledgeable and attentive; the spacious room gives you privacy and it's quiet enough to hear your own conversation. Del Posto is very expensive, 5 courses is the minimum (you'll be there for more than 2 hours), and the waiters talk about the food in a way that is so elevated and effusive it can seem pretentious. But if you're a die-hard foodie, or going for a special occasion, this is really the perfect place."

  • "I was amazed at the lack of focused attention by the serving staff and was disappointed at the stick-to-my-teeth spaghetti dish. I had the butterscotch semifreddo and it was one of the best endings I've ever eaten. Paired with the burnt beef are quite an amazing set of parmigiana zeppoli, the texture of the zeppoli is out of this world good. The service at Del Posto was poor with a twist of nervous. They filled water glasses but ignored the need for butter during the bread course. They seemed to be over staffed or something because they were often standing with plates of food, causing everyone to wonder where it was going, yet after eating, it took 15 minutes for my credit card to be seen on the table. I won't return but love Babbo."

  • "I went there for my wife's birthday dinner and we were very impressed with the service and ambience. We are vegetarians so that was also taken care of. This restaurant is pricy and expect a bill for 350-400 USD for two people if you go for the Del posto menu."

  • "The food and service was outstanding. We told the waiter that we were there for our 1st wedding anniversary and he surprised us with a special dessert that had "Happy Anniversary" written on the dish. Would definitely recommend this restaurant and can't wait to go back."

  • "why haven't i been here sooner? came in with a group of 4 for on a Saturday night 9 pm reservation. asked to wait at the bar as the table wasn't ready. ordered a round of drinks. 25 minutes went by...still waiting. for a michelin star eatery i found this unacceptable. asked to speak to the maitre d about an update. he apologized and brought us some appetizers on the house, and said our round of drinks were on the house too. Very fair, pleased with the gesture. seated 35 minutes after arrival. Couldn't have been happier with the food, pastas and meats were perfection. service, spot on. but slow drink service. waited 10/15 minutes per round. apologized again, and to our surprise, del posto didn't charge for any drinks on the bill. service=A+!"

  • "Went here for the first time with friends from out of town. The service experience from start to finish was the greatest I've ever encountered. I arrived early, so had a drink at the bar. The Maitre d' recognized that my friends had joined me and left us to enjoy our drinks before sending a server over to escort us to our table. We decided on the tasting menu and asked our server to recommend a wine with our choices. Their list is EXTENSIVE. We did place a max price on the wine which was received without the "attitude" that I have sometimes encountered at other restaurants. Our meal was fantastic; I had their crudo, two pasta choices and the "burnt beef"; my favourite way to enjoy a cut of beef. 2 extra desserts were complimentary. Bravo!"

  • "Could not have been more perfect from the food to the service to the ambiance. Though I may have sensed a bit of snark from the sommelier when I ordered an inexpensive glass of wine - sorry I am not a connoisseur (or a big drinker) and I just wanted a light glass of wine with dinner. Otherwise, very highly recommended."

  • "I've had incredible dining experiences in NYC and Del Posto is at the top. The service is impeccable and attentive though never intrusive. The kitchen turned out one amazing dish after the next. From the antipasti to the hand crafted sweets to end the night, we had a spectacular culinary adventure."

  • "Prior to going several people had indicated that it was overhyped, but my first experience here was absolutely amazing. Service was fantastic and the food was outstanding. Not every course was on equal footing, but the preparations were very well done and the ingredients exceptional. Has impressed me over many of the top French restaurants in the city (understanding this is italian cuisine) that I won't name specifically."

  • "While the service and ambiance was outstanding the food certainly did not live up to the hype. All well prepared and presented but no memorable favors in fact while sitting a dinner I wished I was eating at Mario's first restaurant Po instead."

  • "As much as we try to remember how much we LOVE Del Posto - it's only when we return there that we sigh... Of course, the prices are enormous and we can only afford to do this occasionally for a special dinner. But Sunday was my husband's birthday and we absolutey loved every second of the ambiance, the drinks, the food and of course, the service."

  • "This was the most delicious and most extravagant restaurant I've ever been to. I work in the arts and don't really have the money to splurge on places as expensive as this, but we are all about once in a lifetime experiences and this was one. I did not want dinner or desserts to end. I'm not even a dessert fan and they were my favorite part of the meal. I believe in spending money on things that are good for the soul, and this left my soul full and complete. The restaurant itself is beautiful. The staff is incredible and extremely knowledgeable. We got seated about forty minutes past our 9:30 reservation which was the only downside. Perhaps to make sure we spent money on cocktails? I would love to go back someday."

  • "Have been to DelPosto many times since it's opening. Initially, I found the menu somewhat difficult but returned because of the staff and the ambiance. I have been back twice in the past few months and have been extremely impressed. The room is beautiful, the staff is impeccable and the food is sublime."

  • "I never allow the server to choose my dishes for me (I'm somewhat of a picky eater). That is, until now! Patrick (our server) put me at ease and for the first time ever I trusted the waiter to choose my dishes. We ordered the Captain's Menu and were served tomatoes w/burrata, charred octopus, spinach pasta with bolognese, ravioli with brown butter truffle sauce, a seafood soup/bisque, prime rib dish, a cheese plate (amazing goat cheese), and dessert (which was 2 desserts in one since they give you this dessert box in addition to the dessert!). Although some of the tasting dishes sound simple, each ingredient was elevated beyond compare. We've been to some pretty amazing restaurants - even Michelin Star rated - but none compare to Del Posto!"

  • "When you enter into the restaurant it is like entering into another world. WOW! You are greeted and welcomed with open arms. If you want to get spoiled this is the place. Great bar area. Staff is very knowledgeable. My husband and I had the eight course dinner (small plates) with wine pairing for just my husband. There wasn't one plate we liked more over the other. The staff was incredible and attentive. Their timing impeccable. We were their three hours and at no time did we feel that we were rushed. At those prices there is no need to turn over tables quickly. After we paid the check we were given a parting gift. BTW, ladies get a stool to place their purse on. Very classy!"

  • "While this restaurant was Expensive, everything about it was Top Knotch!!! I would return in a heartbeat. The only downside was it was a Monday night and the meal took 3 1/2 + to eat. There was no rushing anything, so we had time to enjoy each course. The food was the best and because there was 5 we had to do the prix fix. We didn't mind because we all tasted each others. And the deserts were amazing!!!"

  • "When I find a restaurant that blows me away, I always go back a second time just to make sure I wasn't dreaming. Del Posto in my opinion is my favorite in New York. I remember Lutece and have eaten at so many great New York restaurants including Le Bernadin which is fabulous. Del Posto for me has managed to trump them all. The restaurant is incredibly beautiful. It is a large but very intimate and romantic. It will impress your significant other or business associate. Staggering wine list. The service is outstanding; the staff friendly and warm. The food - well I would go just for the lardo and their bread. Explore the menu as I have and you will have a culinary experience you will never forget. The desserts will finish you off. Go!"

  • "Booked a surprise Birthday dinner for my girlfriend , party of 6. From the moment we walked in, she was greeted with a Happy Birthday Welcome. The ambience and cleanliness is impeccable. Incredible table. The service was sensational. I don't think I could even fairly describe in words how incredible, informative , friendly, humorous and amazing staff who attended to us. The Sommelier was phenomenal , paired every single dish perfectly!!!. We even had another Sommelier in our party, and he was blown away by the choices and extremely impressed. The food staff...simply OUTSTANDING ! Extremely attentive, describe every dish in perfect detail. The 8 course Chef Menu, was like a culinary ballet. Simply Amazing."

  • "I had a delicious lunch, the simple green salad was so fresh, and truffley, the chicken was tender and juicy and surprised with a simple yet complex layer of flavor. The halibut, Devine. Desserts were good. The ricotta cake the best. Service was great, but they lost a star because the hostess refused to move us from a drafty table in the very back in the middle, despite the fact that lunch service was ending (the captain eventually did move us without a beat...by the window..much better!)"

  • "Del Posto did not disappoint and was even better than advertised. The food was amazing and the burnt beef was one of the best steaks I have ever had. Went for my wife's birthday and they pulled out all the stops and couldn't have had a better experience. Our server Patrick was top notch and provided the best service and knowledge of the menu I have ever seen. Would highly recommend this for any occasion, but especially for any special occasions or for a romantic dinner. Can't wait to return!!"

  • "Beautiful Majestic restaurant. Bar service good. During dinner we were virtually ignored and also somewhat rushed between courses; quality lacked follow up. For the $500 price tag for two with no bottled wine with the meal we on the whole think that the team need to step it up a notch on the food & hospitality front. The 5 course sample menu was well done but the Veal and Lobster Main course disappointed greatly. Lobster very tough and lacked depth of flavor and the Veal chop was pre-cut and consequently very dry. And unfortunately had no flavor served cold."

  • "Complimentary appetizers and tasting desserts great touch. Surprised 100 layer lasagna was smaller piece than expected but savory and light. Bread variety was especially welcome and flavored butter excellent. Service exemplary."
