I put as a special note thatI put as a special note that it was my folks' birthdays and that we had to leave for a 7pm show.
Table wasn't ready when we were.
They didn't do anything for the birthdays and the waiter had no idea that we had to dine promptly5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways Good FoodGreat place if you are going to Carnegie Hall - but also very suitable for any occassion. Have been there numberous times and never had anything that wasn't great. Veal parmesian is to die for.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat everything!Great food, service and ambience. But, very, very pricey!! Excellent location if you are going to City Center.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMDeliciousThe warm welcome started when I entered. The bread arrived shortly. The waiter was helpful and efficient. The food was delicious. We shared a main dish and it came split. Since the portions are large this was a good idea. At the end of the meal there was a surprise of delicious cookies. It left such a pleasant feeling; I felt valued.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had the soft shell crabWe had the soft shell crab special which was nicely prepared and the lasagne - both were delicious. Nice selection - fish, meats, Italian dishes, pizza, antipasti and a great location near Carnegie Hall and Columbus Circle. Food is always perfectly prepared and selection ensures that there is something to please everyone.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMSo Delicious!The food was SO DELICIOUS, and the portions were HUGE! Our waiter was also extremely accomodating AND entertaining. What a wonderful experience!5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMvery good foodi had not been here in awhile, but the food was so very much better than it used to be. (altho always good, it was never outstanding.)
the vegetarian pizza was spectacular, and this is one of the few places i've been able to get burrata, which was also delicious, and made me feel like i was bk in italy.
the wines were a little pricey, but also quite good....and our server was helpful with our choice, and very attentive.
i will definitely start coming bk here when in the carnegie hall area.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMAn Enjoyable EveningArrived an hour earlier than reserved time after seeing Jersey Boys and had no problem being seated. Food and service were both excellent. Ordered the Yellow Fin Tuna w/ Balsamic Glaze and thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend. My wife liked but not loved the Lasagna which I found very good so we ended up swapping dishes which ended up to be a win-win for us both. As for dessert the Cannolis were amazing. A very enjoyable meal to top off a very enjoyable show.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMNew York Experience Par ExcellanceDining here is a true NY experience. From the moment you enter, you are greeted with a NY warmth that is like no other. The warmth continues with the staff who is friendly and helpful, not to mention courteous. The food selection is what you would expect, but at the same time more so. You will not be disappointed and might indeed have trouble selecting. Whatever you do select you will not be disappointed. The wine list is good, so have no concern there. All is reasonably priced, but remember, it is NY. When making reservations, request a booth.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMVisit to NYCI came to the city on may 4th and 5th with 3 of my family members .. I had made my reservations for 830 pm on the forth for 4 people.. I want to be sure to let manager know that our ( first time) experience with your facility was superb!!

Great enough to fill me up.. Thank everyone for making our visit to NYC even better. Sincerely Michele Taber5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMA favorite placeWe visit every trip to New York.

We sat the in Wine Cellar (three tables in a private room) which was lovely and elegant and quiet. Ask for it for smaller groups.

Bella Bella4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMOur first time at TrattoriaOur first time at Trattoria Dell'Arte - it is a find- well situated in a wonderful part
of New York. Clearly a very popular restaurant so we had to wait a bit to be seated which
caused some concern because we had a Carnegie Hall concert to attend that night. That aside, the service was excellent and the food delicious. All 8 of us at the table enjoyed
it very much and would definitely go again.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was the dining highlightThis was the dining highlight or our trip to New York; we stayed across from Central Park and were given the recommendation to dine here by our concierge. We had dinner here twice during our 5 night stay. The pizzas is amazing, the Branzino delicious and the Artichoke appetizer was off the charts... Better yet was the service by our waiter Anise, and the greeter Jason... We felt like family the moment we entered the door. I would make a special trip back to NY to dine here... One last note, I had an off the menu bolognese / arriabiata request that is still hard for me to put into words, crazy delicious comes to mind although that is still a bit understated. I wish we had its' equal on the West Coast... Dine here and be happy!!4/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
