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.

                                              The staff at Il Cantinori went above and beyond for our rehearsal dinner! We originally booked a regular dining reservation, but due to some good luck we were provided the private room where we were greeted with the best banquet staff I have ever seen (and that’s saying a lot from a Director of Catering & Events). The food was impeccable, the ambiance was beautiful, and we even all sang together! Thank you for making our wedding weekend perfect!

                                              Great spot that is both somehow within and separate from the busy city around it. Food was amazing, very fresh ingredients, and so delicious. 10/10 would recommend.

                                              Despite the NYC vaccination mandate for dining indoors, Il Cantinori is not asking to see proof of vaccination before allowing you to enter. Neither half of my party (we arrived separately) was asked to show proof. To be fair, Il Cantinori is otherwise a lovely upscale restaurant. Excellent food (I had the broiled scallops, the rack of lamb, and the berries) and pleasant rustic décor. Service is competent, although a little stiff. But there are lots of other lovely upscale restaurants in NYC, and most of them don't require you to risk your health.

                                              As good as it was 30 years ago. A great meal at a place where nothing is a problem.

                                              Il Cantinori is one of our favorite restaurants to go to for special occasions. It was my husband’s birthday and the place is so beautiful, the food is excellent and the service is superb.

                                              Service was sub-par. Had to ask for a wine/cocktail list. Never offered cheese or fresh pepper for my pasta. Pasta was too sweet, chicken parm was great.

                                              Il Cantinori is the best Italian Restaurant in NYC. The pasta sampler is unreal, the Branzino and Tuna were surreal. The service is impeccable. The bill is not small, but perfect for special occasions, it’s worth it.

                                              Wonderful dinner at Il Cantinori. My asparagus and cavatelli were both delicious, and the pistachio tartufo was dynamite. The dining room is beautiful and the service was outstanding. There’s a reason why this place has been around for so long.

                                              Il Cantinori is always special, but last night I brought friends from out of town and we had the most wonderful evening. From the beautiful table with a view onto charming 10th Street, to the warm and attentive service, to the farm fresh salads and perfect pastas, it was magical. I can’t wait to go back.

                                              This a beautiful restaurant with very attentive service. You can tell the people who work here not only enjoy what they do, but enjoy bringing joy to the people they serve! The atmosphere is very low light, soft music so if you’re looking for a party go elsewhere— and I mean this is good way. This is the kind of restaurant that you hold hands in and stare into the eyes of your significant other lol. While you’re staring, ORDER THE PASTA! Some of the best pasta I’ve ever tasted. Flavorful, light, delicious. Amazing wine selection as well. Fellas if you’re in the doghouse, this is the way out. Will certainly recommend to our friends!
