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
Restaurant Week Lunch on a Monday. Ordered the Salmon. When delivered to the table; there was a terrible fishy smell like scallops. Very disconcerting! Server said fresh fish was delivered that morning???
Very disappointed as this is my favorite restaurant in NYC. Flew in from SC to participate in Restaurant Week. Obviously, not a stellar experience!!
I haven’t been to Il Cantinori in several years although it has always been among my favorite restaurant in NY. We had the loveliest dinner, the food is still superb, the service gracious and attentive without being overbearing and we had a fantastic table. I’ll be back often this year. It was one of the nicest evenings I have had at a restaurant, and my guest was delighted.
I told them I am allergic to tree nuts, pine nuts and any nuts (they did not ask if I had any, I had to tell them!) and they brought cake with some kind of nuts without telling they contain nuts. I had very small bite and realized it had nuts in the cake. I called the server and asked him and he said “oh yes that one has nuts, did you eat them?”. I am not sure what kind of restaurant is this.... they did not apologize, did not refill my water, and fully charged the meal without anything. I was not feeling well so did not had any energy to argue with them that night. But I will not dine here again.
My party of four had a wonderful dinner. I had not been back in 18years. So Beautiful with all the fresh flowers. Nick was so accommodating when one friend was running late & Fabrizio our waiter could not of been kinder. I’m looking forward to returning very soon
What used to be a great restaurant with great food and service is now an extremely over crowded and noisey Restaurant with the smallest possible portions. On top of that, the service is more attentive at McDonald’s. What used to be a fav restaurant of mine, is now a failing restaurant resting on its laurels. Totally avoid this restaurant on the weekends!!
I come to Il Cantinori every time I visit NYC, usually every January. I usually have several meals there before I leave. it's one of the finest Italian venues I've ever tasted. You always remember me and that makes me feel special...although, I am not that special. Thank you for the multiple meals I've had with you. I'll be back again in january...maybe before.
This venerable Italian restaurant close by NYU is inspired. Both front and back rooms (separated by a bar) are comfortable and allow for conversation at normal levels. The service is first rate, attentive, friendly and professional. The food is classically Italian with excellent tomato sauces, fab pasta, meat and fish entrees. This night, we began with a hen of the woods appetizer which was perfectly prepared with mushrooms over beautifully dressed greens. This was followed by Osso Buco and Lamb Chops. My only reservation was that the chops were meant to be med rare but were actually medium to well done. Tasty none the less but.... This is a beautiful restaurant and well deserving of its longevity. It remains a place to return often.
Il Cantinori is a neighborhood staple that I always love. The atmosphere is lively, the staff is always cheerful and accommodating, and it's especially festive during the holidays. The food never disappoints. The pappardelle is a crowd pleaser. I had the branzino and it was delicious. Save room for dessert. They are a treat!
Always a favorite in my book! Amazing food and the espresso martini's are worth writing home about. Everyone I invite always has a great time too. It's a special place where the waiters know you and always welcome you back with a smile and extraordinary food!
Holiday meal with very dear friend. Great table started off with martinis. Totally not rushed. We ordered a combo plate of 3 pastas. I had the truffled scaloppine and my friend had the salmon. Food was excellent. The pasta was off the charts especially the papardelle. The veal was very tender and the salmon cooked to perfection. The dessert selection was great so we tried a hazelnut gelato & biscotti that was delicious and washed it down with some double espressos and a plate of cookies. Great place for a holiday meal!
I loved the ambiance and specially decorated for the holidays. It’s dark and warm and cozy, but with a lot of space for many diners. Our waiter was lovely and surprised us with a bottle of champagne and beautiful birthday dessert platter. The bartender was very sweet and made a great cocktail!
We have been to this restaurant almost every time we have been in NYC and we have never been disappointed. We always look forward to the food selections and the service is first class. We suspect it is a neighborhood gem that we uncovered. I would highly recommend.
This restaurant was recommended by a friend. My adult daughter and I were on a special weekend vacation and we loved every minute here. The staff was professional, yet down to earth. The pasta was mind blowing. We gobbled our food down. Such a lovely and pleasant experience.
