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!

Lovely and charming. Owners are hands on and fabulous hosts.
Real Italian food.
Great atmosphere and good food. Nice neighborhood option for a meal with close friends.
I would give it a better review but their customer service was subpar. Our leftovers were accidentally trashed but they remade it?!? They asked us to give up our table after2.5 hours which was fair but there were empty tables. It seemed off.
I chose this place randomly and am I glad I did! A very pleasant experience from the moment I walked in the door. If it were closer, I'd be a regular.
Great food, service, and restaurant. We were very happy overall with our dinner
It was amazing! I have to revisit just to eat the artichoke cake
Always wonderful! The tuna app and burrata are amazing, really fresh! The salmon is the best in town and their pastas are all creative and flavorful. Highly recommend!
Great food and service thank you. Portions were worth the price
Very nice. We really enjoyed the place for the birthday. We appreciated the job of the high quality of staff.
Great place for authentic Sicilian cooking. Lovely atmosphere. Rustic. Romantic vibe. Perfect for an intimate chat to a very special occasion. Food is wonderful. Neighborhood feel. A real treat.
We had an amazing dinner! Incredible service and atmosphere. We will definitely be back.
Great restaurant, delicious food
Service and good are fantastic!
Such a wonderful experience always! Thank you!
Amazing food, classic but really tasty Italian cuisine, with a southern Italian twist. Wine reasonably priced. And the owners / managers add that personal charming touch that makes you feel as if you were dining at a friends place.
A nice neighborhood place with very good food and moderate prices
Delicious food; amiable service - good value!!! Highly recommended - the food is always creative and delicious!
My family and I have visited this restaurant at least five times since the start of the pandemic. They have a great space for outdoor dining with heating and good ventilation. Not to mention, amazing food. I can't eat pasta but my boys love every pasta dish they have tried at Il Melograno. Their burrata is incredible, as are the meat dishes. The quality of the food is amazing, and the prices are reasonable for NYC. We look forward to dining there again soon!
Loved this as a date night spot for double dating. We enjoyed the food and the vibe, service was great, too. Thanks!
The staff is so accommodating and the food was delicious! I also appreciated the gluten free option.
Always a warm welcome when you come into the restaurant and the food is always excellent,my favorite restaurant in the city.
I had made a reservation here for my birthday two days ago and it was wonderful. The service, food, and drinks were amazing! I would definitely recommend this restaurant.
Some of the best tasting and well-presented desserts I've ever eaten.
Quaint and romantic spot with simple and well prepared Italian and Sicilian specialities. We will return!!
I went for a Valentine’s Dinner and the food was amazing! Also got some drinks that were extremely well made, the servers were all so nice and polite would definitely recommend and go again :)
It was great I’ll definitely come back again
José did an incredible job in serving us. The food was delicious and the prices are affordable.
The food was delicious. I had chicken milanese with a side order of their organic spaghetti. The chicken was breaded with some tasty bread crumbs and was nicely cooked to be crispy and juicy; not an easy task. My husband had lasgna as a main course. He enjoyed it. Very good service. Outdoor seating was chilly but it was a bit of fun to watch people walking by, watch people walk their dogs, being a part of the New York community carrying on with life in trying times. We would certainly return.
We absolutely loved our dinner at Il Melograno and highly recommend it for anyone looking for good quality meal and service! Not to mention we were shocked at the bill by the end as our meal came out to a great price as well.
Food and service were excellent.
The heaters for the outdoor seating were severely insufficient.
We would have ordered dessert, but we were too cold to stay any longer.
Great food. Great service. Will return. It would be nice if the tent was enclosed. But the ambience was great
This is our number 1 absolute favorite Italian restaurant in the city! The food is so authentic and delicious! My favorite is the pesto pasta:)
Great service, delicious food and great portions. Outdoor seating on the side street was nice and quiet.
Both pasta dishes we had were excellent and the service was very attentive. Pricing is very fair for the quality of the food.
Great outdoor dining set up, our server Gregory was amazing. Always loved the food, and it was spot on again to no surprise! Good wine list with very reasonably priced bottles.
Best pasta in NYC! Wonderful service. Support this terrific restaurant.
We have been coming here for years!
Look forward to stopping in every visit to NYC. Highest quality food in a relaxed and casual ambiance!
Food is great, as always, and, even though they were a little busy, the staff were very helpful in finding a table for us that felt socially distant.
The food was delicious, right iver the lincoln tunnel 20 mins from New Jersey
