This was our first time at Del Posto - had not chosen it before as had the impression of it as a business lunch venue - but it won’t be our last. The food was exceptionally good supported by a super service ethic that was both professional and friendly. The whole set up allowed for an intimate and romantic evening which we really enjoyed.

I was very excited to take a group for a business dinner as I had been to Del Posto several years ago and had the best pasta dish I had ever had. Unfortunately I was very disappointed in the food this time. We were required to have a five course meal due to our size which was fine but I felt that our selections were limited, especially related to pasta choices and the food was not very tasty, it was salty, not served hot and very underwhelming.

Started very stiff, like a fine wine opened as the evening progressed. Champagne needs to be served colder. Wine should be decanted. They should know better.

I don’t understand why so many diners are enamored with Del Posto. Granted, the table setting and ambiance are impeccable. But, we three ordered the $179pp Captain’s menu and rated the eight courses 5 to 8.5 on a scale of 10, or generally good to very good. However, we were deceived by the $30pp white Truffle butter upgrade on a couple forkfuls of pasta, got served Matsutake mushrooms, and despite reassurances from the sommelier that we could pick our wine first and the chefs will pair the food, ended up being served swordfish with our Barbaresco. “Del Posto is NOT the ultimate expression of what an Italian restaurant should be”, unless Porcini and Cremini mushrooms are extinct and schools of Hamachi have invaded the Mediterranean. This finicky fusion cuisine was a disappointment. I have eaten risotto di go in Burano, bistecca alla fiorentina (yes, in Florence), grilled fish in Positano with balsamic, olive oil, lemon, and mint. I have dined on cinghiale and curlurgiones in Sardegna. Mario Batali knows better, unless getting you to part with your money for ambiance and service is the goal. Do I really have to clarify that my dietary dislikes are offal, not awful, and that I would like a digestivo, not a digestif? Well, I generously tipped them $300 on the $1000+ bill but I’m not going back. The online marketing of Del Posto is the most fascinating thing about it because this diner doesn’t perceive the value.

Invitation from Juliana Imperati. She is a Classmate of my son who graduated with her from the CIA and she suggested the restaurant.... We’re foodies and it was also our desire to eat at a Michelin rated restaurant.

We were in NY on vacation!

The experience starts with walking through the door. The lighting, ambience, high ceilings... service is exceptional with knowledge of food and drink at every level. The chef inspired amuse bouche were lovely, the house whipped butter was delicious if not a bit excessive in quantity. We ordered a la carte, but there is a 5 course menu and an 8 course tasting menu also available. Prices are quite high and a meal of 2 appetizers, one primo, one secondo, one dessert, a half bottle of wine and an amaro was $320 USD excluding tip. That said the experience and the food were top notch. My fiancé and I will definitely be back, hopefully with more of a budget though.

Always great.
Mario and Joe with a great staff never disappoint.
From the confirmation call to the wine cellar tour after abundant food and drink we can’t thank the team enough for their hospitality and professional touch.
Food displayed their range and ingredient quality like no other cooking this style and menu.
The flavors remind you to ignore the English speaking around you and feel like you are in Italy.
Need an alternative to more than individual wine pairings for those unable to tolerate amount of alcohol offered though.
Look forward to our next excuse to come to Manhattan and indulge.

Unique and elegant atmosphere that feels warm, inviting, and luxurious. The menu is quite diverse, and dishes and service were some of the best I've experience in the city. favorite dishes would include the truffle ravioli, hamachi, and even their cultured cream. Each dish feels thoughtfully and meticulously prepared, and it certainly tastes elevated and pristine.
