Amazing Service as they took great care of us even though we were running late. In addition provided a glass of Champagne on the house for my wife which was fantastic!

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.

Tagliatelle was bland, orichiette too. Scallops chewy and very strong flavor. Service was on point tho.

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.

Nice restaurant but didn't fully live up to the hype/long wait time between making a reservation and having one. The scallop ceviche was excellent, as was the olive oil cake (the best thing on the menu). But I was a bit disappointed with the mushroom ragu garganelli. It was missing something. Still, excellent staff and service and would recommend to others.

The food here is inventive and delicious. The shishito peppers are the best in the city in my opinion.
Lively atmosphere and great service round out the meal. Only problem - apparently many feel this way so it's very hard to get a reservation, plus wine could be priced lower; however, food prices are very reasonable for NYC, especially given the quality and the taste.

We celebrated our anniversary here and had a wonderful time. They started us off with a complimentary glass of sparking wine. We then had the cheese special, 2 pastas, pork chop and the olive oil cake. Everything was fantastic and our waitress was very nice and did an amazing job helping us pick a bottle of wine to go with our meal. Overall, great experience!

It wasn't as good as it was last time. The service wasn't the best. The food was tasty as usual. But it was really loud (music) and the service kept forgetting my milk. My side of scrambled eggs never came, but I just let it go... We had four coffees and they gave us such little cream, we must have asked like 4 times for more. I thought that was a little annoying. I think the server was brand new... I'd recommend it for dinner, but not brunch.

Have been to This restaurant about half a dozen of times over several years when we are visiting NYC and it is one of our favorite/ go to restaurants there. This trip visiting our daughter and her boyfriend.

Our waiter Shawn was excellent describing the specials, providing info on the regular menu, and helping us order a very fine meal. Once we got the food all dialed in, he helped us select a very nice bottle of wine to pair with the food... and it was a good price value.

Thanks for another great meal, fun evening.

Amazing food and service! Waitress was super friendly and attentive. Only negative was the table we were at was close together with the one next to us so we could hear each others conversations clearly. Next time I would ask for a counter seat or a different table but everything else was great!
