Amazing service from start to end. The food is amazing of course but I can’t say enough about the stellar staff. They made our anniversary memorable and special throughout our fantastic meal.

We were very unimpressed by our waitress, the pasta was small and bland, and the environment was so uninviting. Such a shame since we heard so many great things.

Ordered two pasta dishes and requested some bread to eat with meal. Told “we only have toast.” Seriously, I get it is Sunday brunch and you want to sell food, but an Italian restaurant that wouldn’t serve bread with pasta meal.

The food and service were very good, but crowd wasn’t as sophisticated as expected. The table next to us had four girls that were extremely loud and were taking vodka shots as if L’Artusi was an Irish pub. They were moving the shared couch so much with their body language that I had to ask my husband to switch seats with me. The table right behind us had another group of rowdy girls that were pretty loud as well and were disturbing the whole crowd. Given that the restaurant knew it was my birthday, I would’ve hoped they’d sit me and my husband far from the young 20 year olds and more with the other couples at the restaurant. It honestly ruined my dinner to be sitting between these tables... My husband and I couldn’t have a proper conversation. I even skipped dessert because I just wanted to get out of there.

The host was very helpful, and the food was of course delicious. We ate at the bar since we were three, rather than the announced two, but was perfectly ok.

While the food was very good the restaurant is over crowded, extremely noisy and the service was just OK. It was so noisy the waitress was almost unable to hear the order and had to come back and ask several times about our selections. Seating is so crowded you can hardly get to your seat without bumping into other customers or having to move the table.

Was not expecting a brunch only menu - I mistakenly thought it would be a full lunch menu - felt quite rushed as kitchen closed at 3.00pm and we had a 2 o clock reservation- I felt this should have been conveyed to us in the booking confirmation
I was recommended this restaurant and booked prior to departing from my home in Australia with very limited options of dining times

It was a wonderful experience. Was meeting a friend after a long time. Upstairs provided the perfect ambience for a lovely chat over good food and wine.

Servers were attentive to our needs. I have allergies and I felt taken care of very well.

My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary and L’artusi made us feel so special! We sat down and they brought us a toast on the house and then after being too full to actually order dessert...they packed us a Togo back of the olive oil cake for us to enjoy later. It’s one of our favorites in the City and we will always go back!

The food was absolutely amazing! Best Italian food I’ve ever had. I can’t tell you which food was my favorite because each item was equally delicious. They all were good. I can’t remember specific names but we ordered a pasta that had lamb neck, a fish dish, the special of the day which was similar to gnocchi, potato soup, olive oil cake and a chocolate pudding. Yum!!! And the ambiance was great. I will definitely be coming back. Just remember to make reservations way in advanced. It’s hard to get one because it’s so yummy! Now I know why.
