Love love love L'Artusi. This place knows what it's doing. It has amazing food and the best, nicest, most competent waitstaff and management. In a city with so many good restaurants, this is the one I go back to again and again as my favorite.

It still seems de rigeur for city restaurants to court noise level beyond the ears of most human diners. That said, L’Artusi was a wonderful culinary experience, with a thoughtful sommelier who was touchingly unaffected, and a waiter with a sense of irony. The butter lettuce salad was a marvel, the pasta (kale pyramide) far from the “pile of greens” its name tends to imply to Americans. That we were the oldest diners in evidence is certainly not a complaint...just a regret for lost dining innocence!

We came for our anniversary and the service was amazing! We had a 10pm reservation but popped in around 7 and they were able to seat us early right away. They provided complimentary champagne at the start which was special and thoughtful. Our waiter Dan was perfectly attentive, helping with recommendations and kept the speed of the meal at a relaxing, welcoming pace. The experience overall was one I can’t wait to recommend to others! We will be back!

The food is always great here! It is a special place because my fiancé and I ate here before he proposed to me in April. The food is so good that we have come back just because and to bring visiting friends and family.

Unfortunately the hangar steak this time was not up to the usual lartusi standards. It was tough and not just one piece but all of it. So disappointed. I have been here 5 times before with no issue. Plan to go back again and try it. Made the whole dinner a fail for a new guest.

It was good but I wasn’t blown away. I also went for brunch so I should try the dinner before I say much else. The mushrooms are ridiculously good. We got two pastas that were very good but nothing I haven’t had before. Still a great place, but had very high expectations. If I can get in I will try dinner and see again!

It was great to go back to LArtusi and enjoy another special dinner. The service and environment is top notch and we appreciate it. Moreover, the food itself is very well executed and the wine selection is unique and varied. The lamb ragu and olive oil cake are great.

My all time favorite restaurant in New York! The staff is outstanding- especially Heather and Anncherie. Everyone always makes you feel at home and so welcomed! The host staff and bartenders are incredible as well.

The food is amazing. Not too stuffy or overwhelming, big enough portions, and not crazy overpriced at all considering how amazing every single bite is.

Would eat here everyday!!

A friend and I came for brunch. We ordered the LArtusi breakfast which was really way too heavy and just okay. Had a seasonal fruit salad which was disappointing. Not sure I would come back for brunch with so many choices in the city, but if we did would definitely order something different.

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.
