The food was delicious. However, despite the great reviews regarding the service, our waiter was awful. He wasn’t kind, he made us feel rushed, & he just seemed bothered overall. Even my grandmother made a comment about the man’s cold demeanor. While the food was absolutely fantastic, the waiter just tainted our entire experience. I would go back - I’d just request to be seated elsewhere.
Neighborhood staple food is good service was most attentive cost is on the high side.
Favorite restaurant in NYC!
The ambiance, food and service made us feel like we were invited to a friend's home for a wonderful lunch.
Each and every time the entire experience has been enjoyable. But most important is the quality of the food ... always on point.
Wonderful food and service. Lovely atmosphere.
Inattentive waitstaff. Food was decent. Forgot one of our appetizers and didn’t give us part of our dessert.
worst service ever -- waiter MIA -- pasta served without cheese-- charged for an expensive coffee that never arrived. TERRIBLE. this place used to be a gem. what happened??
Always a great venue for bringing clients, friends, wives, and family. Food and service un matched
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!!
My friends and I went there for restaurant week. The service was amazing. The food came quickly and every thing tasted delicious. I had the rigatoni with crumbled sausage and shave Parmesan. I highly recommend this place.
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.
Lovely ambiance, great wait staff, food is very good. They were very nice even though we were there for Restaurant Week, which was a great deal. I willgo back again even when not Restaurant Week.
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
We ordered from the restaurant week menu. The food with mediocre. Nothing like the food I’ve had at I Cantinori
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!!
It was lovely. The food was simple very tasty and simple. The service was wonderful and we loved it.
Lovely good vibe crowd and food. Tired of new hipster places
Always reliable on all counts - food, service, ambiance. One of my favorite spots.
