A word from Trattoria Dell'Arte
Across from Carnegie Hall, Trattoria Dell’Arte features the largest antipasto bar in New York, a sprawling selection of seafood and vegetable specialties perfect for parties of all sizes. Designed after a Tuscan artist’s studio, the rooms include half-finished paintings, oversized sculptures of fragmented body parts, a gallery of Italian noses, a wine cellar dining room, and candle-filled private rooms.

The menu focuses on northern Italian specialties such as the steak Florentine, double veal chop, seafood specialties of the Mediterranean, and unforgettable desserts.

Diner Reviews
  • "I live about a block away, have been coming here for years and I have never had a bad experience. The pasta is always delicious and the 101 layer lasagna and chicken parmigana are a must for any first-timers. The service is also especially friendly and attentive."

  • "Honestly I didn't find anything special about this place. It's an avarage level on everything, food, wine, service and price."

  • "Superb service from arrival to departure. Expensive, but typically NYC in this area"

  • "After a 6 hour drive into NYC, this restaurant was our favorite of the whole weekend. Food was great and the service was incredible. The waiter was happy to accommodate our kids (who only like penne in butter sauce) and was very fun and pleasant. Would definitely go back."

  • "Trattoria Dell'Arte continues to provide an outstanding dining experience. The food is great, the staff knowledgeable, the environment friendly and General Manager Brandon makes you feel like family. There is a reason it's been around for decades. Enjoy!"

  • "Greatest Antipasto in the town! There are a lot to choose from and you can't really make bad choices. And I thought that could replace the meal!"
    Dined on 8/13/2014
  • "The service and food is always great at this resturant, this last dinner I have probably the best soft shell crabs evern the home made pasta is 2nd to none, and the staff is always friendly and attentive!"
    Dined on 8/13/2014
  • "The place is always packed so conversation is difficult. Very, very noisy. Food is good and dependable, but not out of the ordinary. If going to Carnegie Hall, it's a good choice, but there are many better and more reasonable Italian restaurants in the area and the City."
    Dined on 8/12/2014
  • "I think their selection of appetizers has gotten smaller. Although it had fried baby artichokes (judaica), it was somewhat disappointing. other appetizers, pizza and veal Milanese, however, were good. Getting very pricey - $200 for that (veal - $50)"
    Dined on 8/12/2014
  • "Joe was incredibly entertaining and a great server. His recommendations were on point and the food was delicious. We had the Risotto and Haddock, which they split on our plates before bringing it to us. The cannoli is the stuff dreams are made of. I highly recommend"

  • "I've eaten here many times over many years. It used to be sensational, then merely very good, but lately, the past three years, it's been mediocre in every way, especially the attitude of the maitre d'. Reservations were not honored, and it was a mess. VOILA !!!!! New maitre d', new wait staff, and I don't know what's going on in the kitchen, but the food was terrific. This maitre d', whose name I do not know but he is a well dressed handsome man, perhaps 5' 7", dark hair, could not have been nicer or more accomodating, and our wait person was the best, a young lady not only capable but with a great sense of humor. They are now back on my A list, and I only live a half block away, so I will be in there frequently."

  • "Love coming here because of the depth of the menu selections. My party had four different entrees all of which were excellent. Waiter was very helpful on a chianti selection which was excellent and his familiarity with the menu"

  • "We added a note in our reservation that we were celebrating a 25th and 35th wedding anniversary so we asked for a quiet part of the restaurant. There were 8 of us. They have a private wine tasting room that was not reserved that night so we were able to have our celebration in there. It was fabulous. Whenever we visit NY we make a point of going to Trattoria dell Arte because the service is unmatched and the entire experience is never disappointing."

  • "Slow service In general, high prices for low quality plates, but pizza was good"

  • "By far the best eggplant parmesan I have ever had. I always get this when I eat out Italian because it's so hard to make. Trattoria's version was light and and melted in my mouth'"

  • "Trattoria Dell'Arte is in the heart of mid-Manhattan on 7th Avenue between 56th and 57th Streets. When we were there there seemed to be a lot of energy and bustle around the restaurant. The staff was very friendly. The food is very good. They make their own pasta. There were four of us and we each ordered something different and no one left anything on their plates. We were able to get in and out in an hour as we didn't order dessert or coffee afterwards and had plenty of time to make our show as Times Square is only a few blocks away. This was our second time at the restaurant and I have been very pleased with it."

  • "Took clients here for pre-theater dinner. I love it when a restaurant choice makes me look good! Service was among the best I've experienced anywhere in the world. Food was excellent, and there were plenty of delicious vegetarian choices."

  • "Our family was in NYC for a long weekend. Trattoria has always been one of our favorite spots when we come into town. Our family of 5 ordered a bottle of wine, appetizers and dinner. The wine and appetizers came out in a timely fashion. Our dinner arrived approximately 55 minutes after our appetizers. Tables all around were being served their meal that had ordered after us. We were told the kitchen was backed up, our dinner would be right out. The food was good, not great as we had come to enjoy in previous years. When your tab is over $300, you come to expect better service."

  • "Hmmm.. Well, my girlfriend raved about the place and we were looking for a somewhat spontaneous and delicious meal. Unfortunately, the one thing that my gf had so wanted was not on the menu anymore. It was a dish that was always raved about, so unsure why it was off menu. Our waiter offered to see if the kitchen could make it, but returned saying they didn't have the ingredients. Beyond that, our waiter seemed completely distracted the entire night. Slow and inattentive, it was disappointing. At one point, even though they seemed to have plenty of staff, he was seen carrying two bussing bins I'm not a demanding patron, but when we were finished, I had to get up and ask someone to find him, but that just wasn't what I would have expected."

  • "Great food & wonderful service!!! I chose this place online and made reservations. I was nervous because my husband is a type-a perfectionist and has high standards. He (we) loved it!!! My husband had the soft shell crab (seasonal) and I had seafood risotto., and cannoli for dessert. The cannoli was the best I've ever had. We will come back next time we are in NYC! It was absolutely perfect."

  • "The service was outstanding and attentive without rushing us. Location near central park just south of upper west side. The menu was largely poultry, fish, and pork but had decent vegetarian food, and we had the homemade mozzarella capri salad which was the best mozz I have ever eaten. Problem was that the prices were NY prices--meaning, about 40% higher than they needed to be. But then again, so are the plays, the transportation, etc. The dessert, tartuffo, was also great. Had a vegetarian pasta dish which was very good, and a friend had chicken which smelled good (I didn't try because I am more or less vegy. Wish it was cheaper, but dinner was great and would go back"

  • "I keep coming back for the antipasto and it never disappoints. One issue that i hadn't noticed before: No pizza during the dinner hour ? Seems like at these prices you could figure out how to do pizza and still get the theater crowd out on time. See you again soon !"

  • "This is my 3rd and possibly 4th time at this restaurant for personal and professional occassions. I have been greeted, every time, with enthusiasm, and made to feel very welcome. This last visit my colleagues and I were greeted by Richard who was warm and friendly, and Marco our waiter was incredibly patient as my colleagues and I had not seen each other in so long we had lots to catch up on. Marco was gracious, gave us our space, and suggested some pre dinner yummies while we continued our "lively" conversation, Our meals were outstanding. Thank you Trattoria Dell'Arte for another wonderful evening!! We will be back."
