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.

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
  • "We came to Del Posto with high expectations which were exceeded the moment we walked in. Everything was amazing. The service was fantastic, each course came out perfectly timed and the atmosphere was lovely. I will be thinking about this meal for a very long time."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "Pasta came out cold. The Australian truffles they were pushing tasted like cardboard. Prefer a more flexible menu."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "Menu offers choices betweem (pricey) prix fixe dinners and (pricey) ala carte dinners. Portions are on the small side, particularly considering the prices, but the food is exquisitely good. The service was very attentive without being overbearing, and the 2 level restaurant is gorgeous. Also worth mentioning is that the low noise level allows easy conversation, and there was plenty of space between tables. We ate there on a Saturday night when Del Posto was full - yet it did not feel at all crowded."

  • "What a lovely evening! We keep coming back to Del Posto for special occasions because they always deliver a delicious interesting meal with superb service. Highly recommend it!"

  • "Our party of four had a wonderful dining experience here on Sat. night. We all did the 8 course tasting menu and two of us did the wine pairing. We were seated at a very private table in the front corner of the restaurant. The dining room was beautiful, the service impeccable and the food was beautifully presented and absolutely delicious. every detail was attended to. We were there for 4 hours! I couldn't recommend this restaurant more if you are looking for an elegant place to dine. It is expensive, but well worth it."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "I'm a huge foodie and the 8 course captain's dinner delivered. They ask questions about what you like and develop a menu for you, bringing out each round as a surprise. The sommelier was fantastic and found a white Pinot noir that was one of the best white wines I've ever had, followed by a Brut rose champagne to pair with both seafood and chicken, it worked perfectly. Any raving I could do about the quality of the food wouldn't be enough. This was hands down the best meal I have ever had in New York City."

  • "This for me was the most exquisite dining experience of my life."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "this was our 4th time dining at del posto and unfortunately it will be the last. dining at del posto should be an outstanding experience with outstanding food and service. we were not impressed with the whispered description of the menu and each item we were served. it was pretentious. one had to be a wine expert to go through the iPad listing of wines. once the sommelier knows the type of wine you prefer a suitable bottle should be offered. this was not done. 2 of us ordered the lobster - it was tough and rubbery. there was an error with the pasta orders. it was quickly remedied but we found the lasagne to be a disappointment. it was not fresh and the sauce was dry and over done. please improve."
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "It is not often that we dine at such a special place. We were treated so well by everyone on the excellent staff. The food was amazing. There was no detail too small for the chefs and staff. It was en entire evening of good food, wine, company, and, most importantly, a night to remember. The most memorable dish was the pasta with shaved truffles. Divine doesn't do it justice."

  • "Booked for my parents party of 6, which included 4 grandkids. "Thank you for making reservations at Del Posto. Please be aware that upon arrival for dinner, parties of five or larger are required to select either a 5 course or 8 course prix-fixe menu. The 5 course menu includes 5 courses for $126 per guest. The 8 course Captain’s menu is $179 per guest" said the confirmation, however the incredibly pushy server extorted my parents into buying them all Captain's menu and as a result $1300 later my parents were incredibly disappointed in such a rude server who makes grandkids the eldest of which is 13 do a degustation! Yes, I will be back during my annual trip in August, but can only hope the pitiful service is rectified for future visits."

  • " We were here on 7-10 for my wife's birthday. Bill for our party of four without tip was $1468.00. That included 2 bottles of vintage champagne, 1 good Itallian red and 4 mixed drinks. We all had the 5 course dinner that includes an appetizer, 2 pasta courses, a main course and desert. We also had shaved black truffle on 2 of the pasta dishes. In all, without exception, all the good was outstanding. I have need to Del Posto maybe 5 times in the last 5 years, and it's always great with over the top service. Best bet is try to have someone else pick up the check."

  • "Everything that we were served was tremendous , we did the tasting and felt it was a draw across the board . There no bad choices. We would definitely go back and recommend to others as well."
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "The evening was amazing and the food was even better. This is in my top 5 restaurant lists of all time. Expect to spend the evening with the 5 or 8 course meal with wine pairings. If you are worried about the price - this is not the place for you."
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "Awesome. Best service I have ever experienced - sincere without attitude"
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "Del Posto was a perfect choice to celebrate a 25th anniversary with fellow foodies and wine lovers. Amazing on all counts. We did the 5 course tasting menu with wine pairing, which is the best way to go. The wines were presented and the choices explained in context of the food; a truly fabulous way to enjoy a meal. Out of our group of 6, I have several severe food allergies, the chef and wait staff were extremely accomodating. I highly recommend Del Posto for a special occasion or anytime you feel like treating yourself to a wonderful dining experience."

  • "The 5 course vegan tasting menu was amazingly delicious, done to perfection! Staff was courteous, friendly and very knowledgeable about food and wine. Loved every minute/bite of it."
    Dined on 7/8/2014
  • "We had high expectations dining at Del Posto, and all of our expectations were not only met, but exceeded. The food did not disappoint, and the service was exceptional. Not only did we enjoy eating the food, but the staff, including the wonderful sommelier, provided us with an education that was much appreciated."
    Dined on 7/8/2014
  • "At lunch $40 dollars gets you three courses plus complementary snacks before and after the meal. A bargain considering the caliber of restaurant. The ambiance and service is very old fashioned (they even have a guy playing piano in there) so it is quite formal. The food is classic Italian but with a few interesting touches (Similar to Marea). Pastas were a standout, as were deserts."
    Dined on 7/8/2014
  • "What a dining experience, the captains tasting menu was well worth the price"

  • "Loved the creative menu and presentation. The wait staff were very knowledgable and impeccably groomed. The maître de needs a haircut. Beautiful decor. Compares to the French Laundry in Napa, CA"

  • "As a person who has dealt with celiac disease for a long time, I was so pleased to enjoy a special dinner with my daughter where I was offered a complete wonderful tasting menu equal to the regular menu that was gluten-free. This is a fantastic place for a nice dinner when anyone in your party must cope with a gluten-free diet."
    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "We were there for my husband's birthday dinner on last weekend and we couldn't have picked a better place to celebrate this special occasion. Our server was amazing. The food was really really good and to top it off the ambiance was excellent. The restaurant was so kind enough to accommodate my request for a corner table and also my special food request. Our server was very knowledgeable about the food and gave us the right information in a very friendly and warm manner. This restaurant is a must if you want your dinning experience to be more than just good food."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "Food was for the most part just average on night we went. Great atmosphere, good service but food dishes and quality was average and overall quite disappointing especially for the price point, I.e. We did 8 course prifixe at $179/person. Lasagne dish was the highlight and best dish but some of the other dishes were strange and not typical std Italian fare with weird spicy tangy sauces used by the chef and entree dish of nuts, beans not to our liking. Dessert too buttery instead of clean to the palate. Great Atmosphere but not so great food. Overpriced for what you get for your money."

  • "Everything was delicious. One of the best meals ever."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "We enjoy wine with our dinner and it is part of the experience. However, this turned out to be a problem. The wine list was ridiculously expensive. We are not willing to spend hundreds and thousands of dollars on wine. The wine pourers were not so friendly after we ordered a less expensive wine. Our waiter, Andre, was terrific. The ambience was great. We were greeted warmly when we entered. You have to order one antipasti, 2 pastas for the table, an entree and dessert. Two pastas, plus antipasti, was too much for an appetizer. We were full by the time the entree came. We ate a little of everything, and did not want dessert. They insisted on bringing 3 desserts, plus a box of desserts with different tastes."

  • "Great service - the bar, thomas, katie all were the best! Food was superb but a little heavy on the seafood taste - squid ink croutons, tuna/pork combo not my favorite. Desserts awesome!!"
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "Beautiful food, great service. A perfect meal. And an incredible value lunch menu ($39 for 3 courses) - including generous portions of expensive ingredients. Olive oil ice cream with Parmesan cake is a stunning & inventive dessert. Try it!"

  • "We went for the weekday lunch and it did not disappoint."

  • "We love Italian food! Del Posto was on every Italian restaurant list we researched and, it delivered as promised! Beautiful restaurant with added elegance from the piano playing in the background. we had fixed price menus (6 of us) and opted for the chef's 8 course table tasting. Each course was beautifully presented and delicious! Service was fantastic! One of the few NYC restaurants we will definitely return to on future visits! It IS VERY expensive, but if you're looking for a special evening (we were celebrating our son's graduation) it's awesome! Probably would opt for the fixed price menu that allows each diner to choose appetizer, shared pastas, main course and dessert next time. That way you get most of what you want!"

  • "Upon entering the posh space I thought the restaurant would possible be to formal for my birthday. However, we were seated immediately upon entering to a wonderful upper table. Service was impeccable, and every member of the staff engaging. I am a Chicago foodie, and I loved every bit of it. FABULOUS"
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "The vegan tasting menu is just an incredible experience -- the food was outrageously good. Plan on spending several hours lingering over the courses. The staff are knowledgeable and provide just the right amount of service without hovering. They "got" that we were not in a rush and so allowed us to spend 3 1/2 hours in total foodie immersion. If asked to come up with a "negative" I would say there was *too much* food. Even though every dish was small - a tasting, as advertised - the meal was so filling we couldn't finish the chocolate dessert. Horrors!"
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "For $700, we were expecting an incredible meal and experience and we were disappointed. The food was good, but not worth the price tag. The steak tartare was outstanding, but dishes like the eggplant parm tasted like they could have come from our local takeout pizza restaurant. Our waiter ignored us after the first hour. The other service staff was outstanding and did their best to make up for our inattentive waiter. He also poured us two expensive glasses of champagne after we asked to see the drink menu (which he never brought us) and he never told us the price. Jean Georges was the same price and the best meal and service we've ever had -- we will be going back there next time we want to splurge on a special night out."

  • "Del Posto is a gem. Perfect ambieance, impecible service, excellent food, virtually flawless. They do need to replace the sagging seats in their booths, you sink so deep , the tables are to high to dine on. Fine dining in every sense of the word."

  • "I can't think of one thing negative to say about this experience! Oh yes, they did not have certain premium brands of vodka. But who cares, really? You have to get to their house wines crafted by the Bastianich family as well. Wait, what?? They cook and make wine? Yep. Of course they do! And no quality is lost on any level. The food... mmmmm ! Granted a bit overwhelming with the Five Courses but worth every bite. This is also a great place for a special occasion. I requested a friends special birthday. When I called to confirm, I was offered a quiet romantic table as well. Really a spot on place to go. Give yourself plenty of time to enjoy and luxuriate in truly a decadent and indulgent dining experience."

  • "The service -there are no words for how amazing our service was- I felt the service outshone the food on some courses (which is darn near impossible) - You are treated like royalty - the food was perfectly portioned - paced- presented- all amazing- Sometimes it got loud with what seemed to be a party in the wine cellar- and although there is a dress code- t-shirts and jeans abounded. Service & Food-WOW WOW WOW"
