About Il Cantinori
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 Cantinori Ratings and Reviews
the food has been very good all 3 times I have been here. Experienced service, friendly and a great atmosphere. I prefer the room in the back over the front, although there are 3 or 4 tables outside in the front. The wine list includes a nice selection at various price ranges and plenty of Italian wines to choose from.
We had not been here in awhile but found the food to be still excellent. The appetizers in particular were inventive, enticing and wonderful. The entrees were good and the wine list a bit small but good items and a range to choose from. The problem was we went with a baby who was very well behaved. While the wait staff were friendly and accomodating, they clearly wanted us out as quickly as possible. I never felt so rushed at a restaurant before. We had cocktails, appetizers and entree in under 40 minutes. Hard to recommend as a leisurely and ambiant dining spot.
A thoroughly blah experience. To a cheesy, unrelenting Sinatra sound track, we dined on old-school Italian cuisine of no apparent distinction. Our order-taking waiter had charm; the person who actually delivered the food did not. He reversed our plates on all three courses -- and when the error was pointed out (the second time), reached across one of us and just moved the plate over, with a distinct aura of irritation. In the course of thousands of dining experiences, it was a move I'd never before witnessed.
We went here for restaurant week but I was pleasantly surprised with how interesting the menu was. I was actually kind of full after coming from a cheese tasting before, but I thought the food was pretty delicious. However I felt like because we were there for restaurant week + were young they recognized we weren't an expensive meal and tried to get us out as fast as possible. It has a good Italian feel to it though and I think I would enjoy eating there again off the regular menu, although it looked pretty expensive.
I have been going there for over 20 years. It is always wonderful, great ambiance with beautiful flower arrangements and the service is top notch. The food is consistently good. It's a great place in NYC to have a quiet and upscale dinner with family and friends.
The poor service came the day after our meal. I looked at my credit card statement and noticed that I had two identical charges from the restaurant for the whole amount of my bill (about $300). I called my bank and they said that because they are "pending" I would have to wait for them to post or fall off before they could do something. They told me to call the restaurant to have them void one of the charges if I needed it taken care of immediately. The manager was beyond rude. He insisted that they had only made one charge and implied that I was trying to get something for free. All I asked was that he call their cc processor and find out what happened. I won't be going back which is unfortunate because the food was very good.
This is a beautiful restaurant. We went for restaurant week and we got what we paid for. The portions were extremely small and the pre-fixe menu was extremely limited. In the end, it is not a bargain. I would go again and order off the regular menu. The choices on the regular menu are completely different
We were a party of four we did book at 6 but One of our compaiono was late, the restaurant moved us later always kind.
great food!! Wonderful pasta all' amatriciana; meanwhile we expected to be served the owner sent us a big dish of Parmigiano And salami.
All outstandig at the right price. We'll be back Soon.
It was nice. Nothing special. Unimpressed with food. Went for restaurant week and maybe they lacked on the menu for the special, but I have had much better Italian experiences in NY than w/ Il Cantinori. I was looking forward to eating here (especially bc of Sex& the City lol) and while the atmosphere was great and it was nice and romantic, also great location, the food was nothing to remember or get excited about. Wouldn't go a 2nd time. Too many other great Italian options in NY.
