The food at L'Artusi is outstanding. The wine menu is incredibly extensive, and the staff are very knowledgeable. If you're looking for top quality Italian food, this is a must. It's not cheap, but great for a special occasion or a fancier dinner choice.

The lamb ragu with ricotta was absolutely unmissable. Order it, you won't regret it.

Food is impeccable at L'Artusi, as is the Italian wine list. On a Thursday night, a 5:30 rez, the restaurant became much more noisy in the next hour than I remembered it. It was packed, as it is, I think, every night. Hard to get a reservation.

L'Artusi just does it so well. we happened to be there for a birthday meal, but it really is an any night of the week type place. Can't comment on entrees since we never get past pasta and they are all just so good. we shared the mushroom and the lamb/mint ragus this time around.

Great restaurant! Made reservations here as a referral from a friend. The food was fantastic. Ordered the hanger steak and eggs which is not my normal breakfast food. Steak was flavorful , juicy and cooked to perfection. The blanco salsa was a treat in itself. Service was attentive without being hoovering. The portions were large with each bite an explosion in my mouth. Great place and I look forward to coming back soon!

I had dinner here with a friend. After trying to get a reservation for about a year we finally scored one. Given its popularity we were expecting "outstanding," Instead it was "very good." Without the hype we'd probably think about coming back, but in the end it didn't feel worth the extra effort. The decor is rustic with lots of wood, attractive but not memorable. The noise levels are pretty high, but manageable for conversation. The food ranged from superb to very good. The bread is excellent, with peppery olive oil reminiscent of the best of Tuscany. The shishito peppers were wonderful, and the standout was the special burrata and stoned fruits and tomato appetizer. The burrata was the creamiest I've ever had. We then split their signature pssta dish, spaghetti with garlic scapes and parmesan. It was simple but delicious. We had the swordfish and branzino entrees. Both were very good. Not ethereal, but well prepared and tasty. We did not have dessert. Service was generally good but uneven. One server told us the specials and then our main server came to do the same. When our server helped with us the wine list (apparently there is no sommelier) I asked for a red that would go well with seafood at a particular price limit. He pointed me to one a dollar below my limit, then one that was $9.00 above it. I dislike that way of dealing with customers, as it gives an impression of pushing more expensive wines rather than satisfying the customer's desires. It also puts the customer in the awkward position of having to say "that's over the limit I asked for." We also ordered the peppers after seeing them on other tables because we'd missed them on the menu. When they didn't come out with the other appetizer we asked about it and our server told us he arranged for them to come with the pasta. But he had not asked us when we wanted them. Overall, very good but I don't understand the hype.

The food was mediocre at best. Octopus was chewy, pork chop was half fat and the rest was chewy. Their "signature" mushroom dish was nothing special. We had a couple good glasses of wine. The space is extremely cramped and noisy and the clientele are unsavory. If you are there for a meeting or on a date, bar seating is likely a better option.

Very good food, elegant restaurant. Poor service. The waiter didn’t understand the order of the dishes we explicitly said. Also, the food arrived before the bottle of wine we ordered: this is an unforgivable mistake for a restaurant like L’Artusi.

I visit LArtusi every time I visit NYC (or at least when I can get a reservation). It is probably my favorite restaurant in the city. I have been here many times and have never been disappointed. The food is amazing, the service always on point, and it's got a great overall vibe.

Took my out-of-town parents to L'Artusi and WOW did we have such an incredible experience! We were promptly seated for our reservation and greeted by the most personable and knowledgeable waitstaff. The space is beautiful and the food/drinks not only are presented like art, they taste incredible! Everything we ordered was delicious and expertly recommended. One thing I have to mention was the branzino came with way too many olives (the fish was presented on an entire bed of olives) that took away from the delicate flavour of the fish and made the dish quite salty, though that's just our taste. Overall, amazing and worth waiting a month for the reservation
