    We went here for a special occasion and the food/service and whole experience couldn't have been better. Highly recommend for fresh pastas, fish dishes - great beef carpaccio. Creative drink list and great wines. Our waiter Abdul made our whole experience that much more memorable as he was helpful and attentive. We will definitely be going back again and again...

    Came here for dinner on recommendation from a friend and L'Artusi did not disappoint. After speaking with the waiter for a wine recommendation and ending up with something we both enjoyed, we ordered two main dishes and two sides to share. For the main dishes we chose the Hanger Steak and Chicken Cavatelli. Both were delicious and cooked perfectly. The sides we had were the roasted cauliflower and the summer squash, both of these were also excellent and had lots of great flavor. Despite being fairly full, we went for dessert. On our waiter's recommendation (again, very helpful) we went with the bread pudding topped with a blueberry compote - it was a perfect end to this meal with an amazing balance of sweet and savory flavors.

    I took my boyfriend to L'Artusi for his birthday. I appreciate so much that everything I requested was accommodated...discretely. Food and service were excellent. Nothing was too stuffy. They seemed to care about the texture of their food. Such a special experience. We would love to come back to try different dishes.

    We have two young kids and wanted a night out. While this was fine, there was nothing really great about it. Despite having made a rez far in advance, we were seated in the bar area which was not very relaxing at all. It did not have the vibe of fine/nice dining and felt rushed. The "ricotta" they are supposedly known for tasted like butter, not like cheese, and was served with sweet jam, which made it a dessert, not an app. Our cocktails were delicious and the outstanding waitress made excellent wine recommendations. The entrees were overpriced for what was served, but the pasta was the star of the show and not to be missed. I don't think you could go wrong with any of the selections. Overall, an OK night out, but we won't hurry back.

    L'Artusi is perhaps the best kept secret in New York City. The food is amazing and the restaurant is beautiful. It is a great way to spend an evening in the West Village that is both special and romantic. My wife and I usually dine at high-end restaurants and L'Artusi has no trouble competing with the best restaurants in New York that are much more expensive. L'Artusi is a place that we hope to return in the near-future.

    Lived up to and exceeded our expectations based on the casual ambiance, excellent service and a truly memorable dinner all thus bringing the experience to a very successful conclusion. The small plate concept allowed us to share a middle pasta course orchiette with sausage which would have been a miss if we had not done so. Hot and cold first courses were great and both the fish and meat main courses were extraordinary. Dessert options were all great as well. The restaurant clearly deserves the acclaim it has been receiving.

    My boyfriend and I were not blown away by the food. We got the beef carpaccio as an appetizer. It had a strong garlic/onion taste. I had the branzino and my boyfriend had the orecchiette. Both were good. We had some crispy/spicy potatoes as a side. It comes with a homemade sour cream and onion dip that is delicious. The waiter and staff did an excellent job throughout the night of filling our waters and recommending wines. I would probably go back, and I would recommend the restaurant to friends.

    On my most recent dinner at L'Artusi my wife and our best friends decided to celebrate our belated anniversaries. We agreed to share multiple courses and we had two openers, three pastas and two mains. Everything was excellent especially the special pasta with wild mushrooms and the grilled octapus. We brought three bottles of old Italian wine to compliment the dinner. Each meal I have had has been as better than the one before.

    LArtusi was recommended to my daughter and I for a Sunday brunch when we were visiting New York. It did not disappoint! Excellent, fast service and the food was delicious. Hostess and waiters were very friendly and professional. Located in a great area in the West Village right off Bleeker St. Great for dining and then shopping. Can't wait to go there for dinner next time we are in the city.

    We had the garganelli and the rabbit gnocchi, great dishes, just enough to share for 2. The sweetbread was great though they came in morsels and the scallop crudo, outstandingly fresh and balanced with spices. The only negative, is that it is very hard to get a reservation on the prime time. After two calls to the restaurant, I decided to use Open table, which helped me look for one.

    Superb food--beautifully presented, delicate and authentically prepared. The service was outstanding. I'm allergic to garlic and the staff had prepared an annotated menu for me. Everyone had been informed. And, unlike 99.9% of restaurants I go to, the majority of the dishes did not incorporate garlic, or it could be eliminated. Much truer to my experiences in Italy. It's only in the US that garlic permeates everything. Can't wait to go back.

    Excellent food & drinks. Some of the tables are extremely close together, so it creates a pretty loud situation, and also makes it pretty awkward if you have to get up at any time during the dinner - you have to move the entire table out of the way to get out. It would be nice if they didn't try to pack quite so many people into the restaurant. Other than that, excellent food & service.

    I've been going to the Lucille Lortel Theater for years. New show, new restaurant. L'Artusi is the first restaurant that I just had to go to twice! I couldn't stop thinking about their roasted mushrooms. So I went again last night and it was everything I had remembered. Light and deliciously flavorful small plates. We started with two Crudos, the scallops and the fluke. I loved the scallops. We ordered the crazy delicious mushrooms and the cauliflower. The Spinach Pici Pasta special with a Pork Ragu was AMAZING. And to top it off the waiter picked the perfect glass of wine for me (Meroi Sauvignon Blanc). I just may need to give up my restaurant wandering ways and make this THE ONE whenever I'm at the theater.

    Polite welcoming hostess. She found us a table even though we were late . The food was amazing! We had two dishes. One was a carbonara. All the noodles were fresh made. The carbonara was light and wonderful. The other dish we had was a Bolognese type dish but the sauce was so deep and rich, the flavor is just burst in your mouth. The dessert menu was surprising and fun. The wait staff was right there to help but not intrusive. The wine was excellent as well. We had a wonderful evening there.

    I was visiting NYC for the weekend with my wife. We we're hesitant to try L'Artsui at first due to the plethora of Italian restaurants but we thoroughly enjoyed our meal and our experience at L'Artusi. We started off with the Hamachi Tartare and a Ricotta Cheese with Rhubarb. Both were excellent starters. For our entrees, I had the Bucatini which was amazing. The pasta was perfectly cooked and the sauce had a nice spicy flavor to it. My wife ordered the Charred Octopus which was probably our favorite there. It was cooked well and complemented with the potatoes, olives, and pancetta nicely. I highly recommend L'Artusi and would definitely go back again.

    I came to Lartusi upon a recommendation from a friend that also lives in the area. I went with my boyfriend on a Saturday night and had such a wonderful time. I ordered the Mushroom Ragu which was outstanding, he ordered the Linguini and Swordfish. We split Brussel sprouts and carrots and then had the most amazing bread pudding for dessert. The cocktails were delicious as well. Next time I'd like to sit upstairs to see what the atmosphere is like up there. I would most definitely recommend this restaurant for anyone looking to enjoy great food, service and atmosphere!
