Il Cantinori, located in Greenwich Village, has been at the forefront of Tuscan cuisine in NYC since its opening in 1983. This old farmhouse with a rustic warmth, stucco walls, wooden beams and voluminous floral arrangements is very romantic and elegant. We combine the unique traditional flavors of the Tuscan countryside with a complete seasonal lunch and dinner menu. We welcome guests with affectionate hospitality, daily specials and a wine list reflective of the northern Italian regions.

    Il Catinori is a local neighborhood eatery… mixed with the charm of Old New York City yet upscale enough for special occasions. It never disappoints.

    The food was mediocre, not bad but nothing great. Service was pretty good up until the end. At the end of the shift they were more interested in wrapping up quickly and were moving all the chairs around. Therefor I finished my dinner in a chaotic symphony of chairs being dragged on the floor from one side of the room to the other, it was terrible.

    We met my nephew, who was in from Dallas for work. The food was excellent, everyone loved it. But what really amazed me was the service. We had so much to catch up on and we never once felt rushed in any way or pushed to order. When we got up to leave I was shocked to see that 4 hours had gone by. The perfect evening. Thank you Il Cantinori!

    We had the best time! Everything was first class - the food, the service, the restaurant in general. We enjoyed every bit of our dinner and loved that the could really make anything we wanted off-menu. You MUST save room for dessert as that is just as spectacular as the main entrees!
