Need to book at 10:30 AM?Other great restaurants with availability.
In 2020 you can’t have a bar at a good restaurant serving old style fake red Marischino cherries in drinks. There are so many serious brandied cherries out there. This plus only one red and one white by the glass? Come on people. Your beverage game needs an upgrade.
Seating is way too crammed. Had a huge party sitting behind us that kept knocking into us and had a crying baby. Service was fair. I would have expected a much more elevated experience for a fine dining restaurant.
The delicious food is served in a warm and intimate environment in a residential part of Manhattan. The portions are generous and the service is always friendly.
Met friends from conn and they loved it all. Food drinks ambiance. Always a 10
Our group had the most amazing dining experience. Everything from the ambience to the food to the service were superb. Our waiter and boss boy were so nice and attentive.
I am definitely coming back to this place, and I have already satrted recommending Il Cantinori to family and friends. If you ever find yourself in NYC, you have to dine at this place
Best service in the City, also hand down the best Italian restaurant in the City.
Went there for restaurant week and the food was amazing. Since we were below the median age of the patrons there, waiter assumed we were there for restaurant week and did not give us the
a wonderful spot for a romantic dinner. in the back room, however, the tables were so close together that the noise from the table next to us was really distracting. food was very good and the service great.
Il Cantinori is my favorite restaurant. The food is always outstanding, the wait service is always perfectly attentive--not too much, not too little--and the atmosphere and decor is very comfortably elegant.
They food, service and atmosphere was excellent!!
A great experience. Food and atmosphere are magical.
long time village Tuscan restaurant.. pleasing atmosphere (although a little too dim in the afternoon).. very tasty food, good variety, nicely presented, and there is helpful staff.. sighting celebrities is not unusual.. a good place for a gathering of friends, or a celebration..
Still holds up in all categories. A beautiful meal.
Went for restaurant week and the food was not that great. Service was phenomenal tho!
Food was excellent....we took advantage of restaurant wk and menu was perfect.... we'll be back for regular menu meal
Wait staff was great and helpful
It was a wonderful evening. Our server was amazing, and the food was terrific. I hope there are several more decades in the future for Il Cantinori.
Fabulous dining experience at il Cantinori yesterday evening. We started with an endive salad with blue cheese and walnuts and then each of us had a pasta -- the pappardelle a la butera which is always to die for and a fabulous spaghetti with manila clam sauce. The vibe in this restaurant is exceptional and the service is exactly what you would want in a fine dining establishment. Kudos to the owner/manager Frank Minieri and his team.
I was unimpressed with the service and the food was not a five star rating as described in the online description. The drinks were expensive and the overall experience was underwhelming. No reason for a return visit.
Amazing food, decor, and great especially SERVICE!!
Thank you Dominico for taking care of every detail!
Lunch during restaurant week on Thursday, Jan 23, 2019.
The two ladies sitting in the window - we will be back!
Wonderful night out we are coming again and will be recommending it to friends and family... Bill Brown
Our server was outstanding, as was the food. This restaurant is a must.
First time dining and was very excited to try it during restaurant week's menu. A HOME-RUN experience ! Excellent service, (our Waiter, Carlos) explained everything, and included the specials of the evening, with prices ! Great idea. The wine I loved, as did my husband, and the meal was better than I anticipated. Cannot wait to return on a regular night and try anything pasta with the special homemade red sauce they give you for bread dipping ! A perfect evening, So glad we had the best dinner.
The service staff was incredible. So friendly and knowledgeable about the food. They were passionate about making our experience great.
The model for consistency and excellence over a long period of time
Great. As usual.
We have dined here many times - it is always wonderful. Our server was very attentive and helpful. Food was outstanding - especially the tuna and pasta specials. We will return.
Il Cantinori is my favorite Manhattan restaurant- a great local place with incredible food and ambiance and service that is special. Veal Chop Parmigiana is the best. Kudos to Frank and the team.
After driving from Washington, DC to Ny to dine at Il Cantinori...we were turned away at the door. We arrived 20 minutes prior to our reservation time. They said that there was an emergency in the kitchen and we would not be able to be seated. They offered no real explanation. There was a full restaurant of other diner's. They didn't offer to reschedule, or offer any other solution. I was thoroughly disappointed as we were excited to dine in a Ny dining destination.
Always good food and great service at Il Cantinori. I have been 4 times in the past month. Plenty of places to choose from in the neighborhood, but this place feels like home!
We had the best experience! The food was phenomenal. It was such a treat to meet the owner - he spent an hour talking to us! We will definitely be back!
Our party of 6 was accommodated very nicely at a very busy time. The food and service were outstanding. All the staff were personable! We will be back.
We always appreciate the atmosphere, food and service at Il Cantinori and this time was no exception. Excellent as always!
The entire meal was delicious, and the service was personal and right on the money. Always have a great time here.
Great meal, as always. Great food. Great service
Always the bedt
Aldo made the evening a total delight!! Will return because of Aldo.
We had a terrific quiet lunch on a Thursday. We'll go back the next time in NYC
Food was delicious, Service was very good. We had the best time. Thank you!
