Il Melograno brings the best of Italy to Hells Kitchen where original receipts, hand crafted pastas and friendly hospitality come together to create a casual and unique dining experience.
All the way from Sicily, Lino and Gregory moved to New York City bringing the best of the Southern Italian culinary tradition. Nine years after opening a Sicilian restaurant and concept store in Noto (Sicily), the idea of honouring the Grandmas traditions is what creates the philosophy of their hospitality at Il Melograno. Buon appetito!

    This place didn’t live up to the online reviews. It was mediocre and a real disappointment for a Saturday night in NYC. I would not recommend -there are too many other good options.

    It's a small restaurant with a limited wine list. The limited wine list is probably better since open bottles don't stand around. Service was pleasant and responsive. Food was excellently prepared and reasonably price. Restaurant was not loud so you can easily talk. We were six and no problem hearing everyone. We had never been there before; I was looking for something near the theatre district but a bit away. This was perfect.

    Ill Melograno is a beautiful, classy Italian restaurant with exposed brick, candles, hardwood tables and decor, and steampunk Pixar lamps (you’ll know what I mean when you see it). Oh, and the food was good and at a good price.

    “Il Mel” is one of our HK neighborhood go-to’s and for good reason. The place is casual and comfortable. The food is excellent (try the paccheri and the homemade raviolis, plus the Sicilian salad). The service is always friendly and helpful. Good Italian wines. Prices are reasonable, especially for the quality of food. Always a pleasure to dine there
