Really enjoyed the octopus app and the pasta entrees. Outside seating could be loud due to traffic but the views of Hudson yards are great.
Service and food were quick! Atmosphere was cute and food was delicious! Highly recommend to friends and family. Cute date spot as well!
Always a great experience!
LOVE THIS COSY NEIGHBORHOOD SPOT! GREAT FRESH FOOD, SUPER SERVICE AND NICE AMBIANCE.
The food was wonderful, the portion sizes were perfect. The restaurant was inviting and the waitstaff were very attentive. As well they were able to accommodate our son who has Celiac Disease.
One of our favorite local non touristy go to Italian restaurants in Manhattan. We have been coming to Il Melograno for years and we have never been disappointed with the food. Most of their pasta dishes are made with homemade pasta and their sea food dishes always taste fresh (i'm fairly picky about where i order sea food from). The most recent visit we had the seared tuna app (really nice), beet salad (fresh beets) and the warm cauliflower soup (really good). For dinner we had the bronzino (fresh) and orecchiette with crab (home made orecchiette). If the weather is nice they have covered out door seating ( it can get a bit noisy during rush hour because it is right on 10th Ave.
Great date spot. High quality food that won’t break the bank. Wonderful staff.
Great food, comfortable service and nice ambience. From New Orleans where we are known for food and this was amazing. Away from the tourist areas but not too far- can’t wait to come back again next time I am in NYC.
Il Melograno is a wonderful restaurant.
The food and service are consistently excellent.
Consistently excellent food!
Fantastic. Would go again!
A reliable Italian restaurant-- always need to make a reservation.
We live thus little gem of a place near the Irish Arts center. Great for quick or slow authentic delicious Italian. Be sure to order their yummy tiramisu.
This is a little gem! The food is spectacular and the service friendly and attentive. The ambience is so welcoming and everybody makes you feel home. They have the best homemade pasta in town and a nice selection of Sicilian wines proudly described by the owners if you wanna know more about them. Prices are reasonable compared to other Italian restaurants.
Cucina italiana fedele alla tradizione senza contaminazione USA. Per chi vuole mangiare come in Italia il Melograno è una buona occasione. Servizio presente ma non invadente. Il titolare Lino, persona gradevole con cui è piacevole conversare. Cibo di ottima qualità, soprattutto per le materie prime evidentemente ricercate con cura, e prezzi onesti considerando che si tratta di Manhattan.
Delicious food. Attentive service. I lovely experience. And the price is right!
Excellent Food and Service. It's a hidden gem. Just found it by accident last week and was there twice already.
A great neighborhood gem. Very consistent. We love coming here.
It was uncomfortably hot
Great place for intimate dining, or if you have a large group call ahead. The staff was very accommodating of our group of 10, and the food was great, with very fair pricing.
A great little neighborhood restaurant. Happy to have discovered it.
Lovely restaurant- great service, beautifully presented food that tastes good! But it was a bit hot and it was noisy. I was a hot day so perhaps the air conditioning just couldn’t keep up? That’s the only reason it got 4 stars instead of 5!
Food was outstanding. Everything was fresh and delicious. My husband’s rib-eye was one of the best steaks he has ever eaten. Well done!
Very good quality, pleasant atmosphere and right price! Strongly suggested
A small restaurant that can get noisy. But the food is great, prices reasonable, and service above average.
I had been meaning to get to Il Melograno for years and am so glad that I finally did! I did not know
that it specialized in Sicilian cuisine, along with the cuisine of Puglia. While NY has many restaurants
that specialize in northern Italian cuisine and Roman cuisine I'm always happy to learn about those
that specialize in Sicilian cuisine, like Il Melograno. I had a delicious Mele e Finocchi salad followed by a
pasta dish of cavatelli with mussels, a specialty of Puglia. When I return I shall try the Tortino di Carciofi,
which is a pan seared artichoke cake, sounds yummy!
Food here is amazing! This is about to become my favourite place in NYC. The service is so friendly and attentive at the same time. I had the pappardelle and I can tell: that pasta is to die for!
Our dinner was just delightful! The homemade pasta is delicious and so is the grilled octopus and the burrata. The service is amazing, we had the chance to meet the owners and I can tell, they’re the best persons ever! I just can’t wait to go back!
Ambience was nice, service good, not too loud. The only problem was that the food was solidly so-so.
We visit this restaurant every time we come to NY. The food is outstanding & the service is excellent. We will definitely be back
Great neighborhood restaurant!
Amazing as always
Had high hopes, having heard it was a "sister" restaurant to Il Baretto (now take-out only), which had excellent food.
Unfortunately, at Il Melograno, the seating was uncomfortable, the noise level intolerable, and the service spotty (but pleasant). The food was fine but unexceptional. I wouldn't recommend it particularly, but the rest of my party liked it, so I'd say it's worth a second chance.
Excellent service and lovely atmosphere. Pasta was very firm; not overly impressed with the food
Going to this restaurant many many times, love it love it love it. The service is outstanding . The guys who working in this place just perfecto, friendly. Come back again. Eren Glasser
Good food, right in the neighborhood.
European feel and excellent service.
Always fantastic. Authentic and super delicious. Service perfect and excellent wine options for very reasonable.
Very good dinner at a very good value. The service was excellent able o easily accomodate my request for extra sauce on the pasta. Their sauce was extremely good.
Food was delicious!! Can't wait to go back! Waiter was helpful and polite.
We loved the food, and the service was great! We strongly recommend.
