What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
9.1

Del Posto is one of the best special occasion restaurants in New York City. Think of it like a more upscale Babbo, or Daniel with pasta.

Ratings 9.0-9.8:If the 8.5-9.0s are the restaurants you’ll frequent for more than just special occasions, the 9.0-9.8s are the all time great restaurants of their city. Restaurants that will be around 20 years from now, assuming the Earth is still around.

Quality of the food is tremendous based on modifications of traditional Italian dishes. Very good service as well, with interesting explanations. The dinner flows very slowly with long pauses between dishes. I definitely recommend it.

Absolutely impeccable service and incredible cuisine! We had the 5 course menu and each dish we selected was amazing. Decided to skip the wine pairing this time in order to focus on the food, so one bottle of wine was enough for two of us to enjoy throughout the meal. Will definitely recommend to others and plan to come back in the future!

Very much a "hit and miss" experience with the 5 course menu.

While antipasto selections were tasty, some of the pasta entrees were over-processed beyond recognition. Hard to tell whether the Girella Genovese, which came in the form of a hockey puck, was meat, or pasta. Hard cooked on the outside and drizzled with a "pork reduction", it was essentially inedible. The Branzino was processed and manipulated to the point that it was dry and tasteless. The inclusion of guanciale in the dish (sea bass and pork cheek?) was not a plus.

The Bastianich Vespa Rosso wine was a pleasant surprise.

The servers were very friendly and knowledgeable and mitigated our disappointment with the food.

Definitely a "been there, done that experience" for us.

Unlikely to go back.

Top notch. The best restaurant in NYC.
We’ve been going there for many years and they always are evolving and improving. The service is white glove without being stuffy. Amazing food, the most unforgettable wines and cocktails. Desert is always sinful. They always impress.
Beautiful decor and atmosphere

I went their in the day I made a proposal for my fiancé. Everything was perfect!! The waiters they know what’s their are doing, you have one waiter for wine, one for take order, one to explain the plate.
The restaurant is little bit expensive, but for a special day is perfect!!!!!
We choose the chef menu, the waiter ask some questions about what we like, and we have 8 plates, which one was better then the other!
Thank you del posto for this wonderful night! Was everything perfect!

I do not know what is the standard for giving a seat of honor. I know that window seat is the seat of honor but most asians are impossible to sit there and the quality of the food was not suitable for the price. Maybe it's because I have a lot of expectations and moreover employees did not properly explain the food.

A beautiful restaurant with enough space between tables & good acoustics so you can actually have a conversation.
The food for the most part is excellent in both presentation & taste.
We had the 5 course tasting menu with wine pairings. I highly recommend doing so.
Our one issue with a fish dish was that it was over cooked. When the bill came, we noted an adequate amount had been deducted to reflect our displeasure.
Food allergies are noted and accommodated for.
The staff is fabulous.

Del Posto is the most wonderful Italian restaurant that I have ever dined at in New York City. The interior is spacious, elegant and very upscale. We had the 3 course luncheon which includes several options a d some little surprises. Service is leisurely but very attentive. A pianist performed quiet classics all afternoon. The whole expetience was dreamy.
