Booked on recomendation from Tripadvisor. Should be a very nice Italian restaurant. It was ok, great food and great service. But must be seen as a simple Italian restaurant, have dined on better. But the price was ok and we had a nice evening.

The food was decent and better priced than most Italian restaurants in the neighborhood. The part that I enjoyed the least was the lack of space between tables -- table space between parties was very limited and just shy of what one might consider community dining.

We were very pleased with this restaurant. Cozy, neighborhood place that is unpretentious and inviting. Excellent Sicilian food well prepared and delicious. It is the kind of place you could eat at everyday if you live in the neighborhood. Feels like Italy.

First time at this restaurant. We chose it based on proximity to a theater we were going to and TripAdvisor reviews.
Excellent food. The artichoke cake, papardelle with ragu, chicken Milanese were all really good. As well as the Prosecco and other wines.

Reservations a must. Even at 5:30pm there were several tables occupied and the place was full by 6.

We were seeing an Off-B'way show on the next block and checked online for a restaurant nearby. We LOVED our choice! (braciola) The food was AWESOME, delicious beyond words, and moderately priced. The service was excellent and the staff beyond pleasant and accommodating. We plan to come again WITHOUT a show to get to so we'll have time for appetizers, dessert, and coffee. We will be bringing friends. Thank you for a lovely evening!

I walked by this neighborhood restaurant often, and hadn’t been in until now. The limited staff was a bit overwhelmed, but held it all together well, and was friendly and helpful. The bar is limited, but adequate, with a nice selection of cocktails, wine and beer.

The food was absolutely EXCELLENT, especially for the price point. We had the bruschetta, artichoke cakes, the salmon, and the sausage pappardelle, each one was REALLY tasty.

I WILL DEFINITELY be back!

Loved everything about this Hell's Kitchen restaurant! Great ambiance - superb wait staff - but most importantly - the food was incredible! My husband and I shared the veal ravioli in sage butter and the pappardele with sweet and spicy sausage. They split these in the kitchen for us which we did not expect - making the presentation lovely! We also enjoyed the burrata and cauliflower soup as starters. We highly recommend Il Melograno!

We discovered this place in May just wandering around ... and loved it so much that we brought our friends back three days later. It was the top of our list for this month's visit. Every dish is a treat and the friendly staff is genuinely helpful.

My friend and I had an early Saturday night dinner since we were going to Katsura Sunshine’s Show at New World Stages Theater. Each of us had a glass of wine. We shared the branzino for a first course which was succulent. Followed by the sirloin for our second done rare exactly as we asked. Ended with chocolate cake and espresso. We paid for the meal plus tip with cash. Dinner was terrific except got message from OpenTable asking why we were a No Show on our reservation! I had to call Il Melograno and correct their putting in we were a No Show. No apology from them. This left a bitter aftertaste after such a good meal. Puzzled why would the staff do this?

After a long day of being a tourist in New York, we wanted a restaurant (Italian) that was relatively close to our hotel (Ink48). I looked on OpenTable and found Il Melograno with a reservation time open for when we needed it. We walked about 2 blocks, found the restaurant and were very pleasantly surprised to find this corner restaurant with outdoor seating and a small inside dining area - it was kind of romantic, the lighting the small tables... We were seated right away. The service was pretty good. The place was moderately busy (it was about 9pm on a Saturday). The food...absolutely delicious! We both kept it pretty simple - salads and pasta and a nice bottle of wine. Mine was a seafood pasta with linguine and it was perfect. We both truly enjoyed the food and the evening. (The tables were pretty small but they brought over another table so we could spread out a little bit - which was nice!). Overall, very pleased and if/when I am back there on business and staying in the same area, I will definitely go back.

The food is always very good. The service from servers and hosts is always excellent. It's the perfect neighborhood restaurant with very reliable menus that change often enough. On this last visit, we had a superb ricotta cheesecake to finish things off. Buon appetito!
