Il Brigante Restaurant
So good came back two days later.. love this place
Great little place. Love coming here.
The pizza is the best!!
Small Italian restaurant that always delivers wonderful food.
Great ambiance! Food is overpriced and inconsistent.
Food and Service here is fantastic. I would just note that it is a small place and can get crowded. Definitely worth it though
Always a great spot to have New York style Italian food. Reliable and fun. Cramped and delicious.... enjoy!
Authentic Italian food in a cozy restaurant. The walls show exposed red brick.
Sicuramente il miglior ristorante made in Italy della nostra vacanza. Locale informale ma personale gentile e cibo ottimo.
Food was very good. The place was loud, but that is probably normal for a Friday night.
Took my secretary out for the holidays
Awesome service, lovely locale and delicious food as always!! Able to manage large groups well.
Loved it! Will definitely be back.
Very good dinner as always!
Holiday luncheon with work colleagues and overall had a really good time. Service was a tad slow. Food was delicious though I ordered wild salmon dish and the fish appeared to be farm-raised. My work colleagues all enjoyed their meal. Appetizers and deserts were delicious too. Ricotta cheese cake is a must so light and not too sweet😋
Great spot with amazing pizza!
This is a quaint little Italian place that seems to be more locals than tourists. They are super friendly and the food is wonderful.
great fun, bustling spot. cozy and lively, and excellent homemade pastas + large salads + great wine!
bricks and candlelight to boot!
Perfect place for a cozy Birthday dinner for family members ranging in age from 7 to 75 everyone was happy with their meal
Service was excellent with the dimming ambiance. The food is great ; tasteful
Cute date spot
I don’t want to give away this terrific secret! We’ve been to Il Brigante several times and it just keeps getting better. The “Pink Sauce” is fantastic. The owners are always on site and make you feel like part of the “famiglia”. Great location in the Seaport district. Highly recommended!
Amazing food/ wine/ service
Food is consistently very good, volume in the restaurant is deafening can’t hear anything,
The food was delicious, and the atmosphere was warm and cozy. We were very satisfied with the eggplant appetizer, the rigatoni with sausage and mushroom, and the veal shank. The only reason that it wasn’t 5 stars is because the staff seemed to be overwhelmed once the restaurant filled up, and the service dipped a bit, and the volume also markedly increased. We would definitely go back, perhaps just at an earlier time.
Amazing food and friendly, attentive staff! Always love to come to Il Brigante
Food was delicious. Wonderful place. Wish we found before our last night in town. A must place to eat!
Wonderful meal. enjoyed by everyone.
Everyone enjoyed their food and wine. Buffala appetizer was amazing! It got a little noisy as the night went on but it wasn’t too bad. Service was good and they never tried to rush us out. Much appreciated
Fabulous food. Great vibe. Staff have us time to chill and decide. The salmon was delish and enough (almost) for two.
Table was tippy but food was amazing
I have been ordering from here and taking people here for dinner for years. I cannot even process the most outrageous experience I had in Il Brigante tonight. We came at 6:00 with a res and got a great table by the window. Was so happy. The waiter got me my fav 1/2 bottle Barolo. My sister and her husband and I ordered two pasta dishes to start and three main course chicken parm.
After waiting a very long time (at least one hour) the waiter brought the pasta and main courses all at once, even though they are first and second courses. My sister's husband, who is Italian, told them that's not how its supposed to come. I've eaten there dozens of times and that's not how its done.
They take it all away, instead of leaving the pasta, and I get up to speak to a mgr, but there wasn't one, its labor day weekend. What appeared to be a waiter told me that bringing it all at once was normal when we all know it wasn't. And he said it with animosity and an intent to argue with me. I was astonished. I said "you know what, I'm just not going to come back here anymore". What happened next is astounding. He pushed me on my shoulder and said "good, get out". At which point I told him DO NOT TOUCH ME - and I went back to the table and told my party we were leaving. My brother in law asked him if he touched me and he lied and said "No, I have a daughter." My brother in law told him to be a gentleman bc clearly he had no idea.
A complete animal and a complete liar.
In my entire life living in NYC I have never, EVER experienced nor heard of such insanity.
I'd love for the owner or actual manager to reach out to me to explain how this situation could even happen.
I’ve been going here here for over 10 years. Food is consistently good, menu options are great, ambiance is very nice. It’s a must for anyone looking for a good quality affordable meal.
The service was fantastic, really went above and beyond
Terrific Restaurant. Beautiful night. Good Food, Great Service.
Nice Sunday lunch with Family. The fried calamari was excellent! Mom enjoyed her individual margerita pizza. Linguini with shrimp and zucchini was light and delicious. My dad and husband enjoyed their pasta with shellfish. Service was excellent. Just steps from Circle Line and Seaport stores.
Very quaint little place with optional outdoor seating (weather permitting) A nice romantic place.
Es war wirklich schön! Haben dort einen Geburtstag gefeiert und mussten unseren Tisch sogar verschrieben. Alles kein Thema! Service nett und aufmerksam. Speisen gut bis sehr gut. Die Weine sind vielfältig und entsprechen dem Stil des Restaurants. Preislich im Rahmen der amerikanischen Verhältnisse. Alles in allem ein sehr schöner, gelungener Geburtstagsabend.
We had a reservation but got there and they had no space for us. Bad experience!
Food is fantastic. Pizza is great!! should have reservations if for dinnertime and expect to wait anyway. It's worth the wait.
it's a favorite of my family.
This was a very cozy and homey restaurant with wonderful staff and delectable food that tasted fresh and very flavorful. The wine selection was also very good. We’re definitely going back to try more of their dishes. Well worth the money.
