We had gotten a late night reservation and felt rushed thru our dining experience by the staff. No tasting notes for the wine list. Portion sizes were very good.

Wonderful! We sat upstairs which was a little quieter than downstairs. The service was phenomenal! Not stuffy. And of course the food was excellent. Get the spaghetti!

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.

The food was great. Staff tries to hard to be formal. Too loud - hard to hold a conversation. Beautiful space.

Amazing as Always! Simply delicious is the perfect word for it. The Rabbit Gnocchi & the Mint Lamb Pici are an absolute must!!! The Kobe Tar-Tar was incredible, feel very lucky to have had the opportunity to taste such deliciousness! Just a great meal, do not think twice, a must to dine!

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!

The service was a bit slow, but as it was a Saturday night and crowded, it could be excused - except that any good NYC restaurant should be ready for a busy Saturday. And we were told -repeatedly - that we would be served in time to leave at no later than 7:15 as we were heading to a 7:30 performance down the street. Oops.

The gin fizz was perfection - I imagine I'd have found the exact one in a 20s speakeasy. The wine list is fantastic and the menu very appealing. The special steak tartare was incredible - I shall be wondering how to replicate it for months as it is not a common dish. My friend was rapturous over the sweetbreads - the second time she ordered them there - again, an uncommon dish. Three of us were delighted with the tagliatelle and the branzino was enjoyed with gusto by the rest of our party.

Sadly. we had to bounce before we could enjoy coffee or dessert - this is really not a place for pre-performance meals - rushing does no justice to the superb cocktails and wine or the dinner menu. The greatest drawback is the noise level - the music was so loud that patrons were screaming above it and each other - but I guess that's what the kids are used to these days...

Great atmosphere, fantastic service and amazing food except for the appetizers which were WAY too salty - couldn’t taste any other flavors (we got the ricotta and the mushrooms). However the pastas were delicious and the olive oil cake unbelievably good.

This is my 4th time here and every time I come, nothing changes- in the best way possible! Food is always amazing and the service is top notch. It’s my favorite restaurant in the city and every time we go, I’m reminded why I think so. Simply the best.

This restaurant was highly recommended so perhaps my disappointment reflects the high level of expectations.

The noise level is deafening. You have to scream to be heard especially downstairs. Best to take two seats next to each other at the bar. Service is great; the wait staff is very friend (if you can hear them).

The menu is quite limited and dishes are a modern take on Italian food. Many of the pasta dishes have Ricotta Salata, a feta-style cheese I don't like. I was told to have the roasted mushrooms, but it had Ricotta Salata. With limited options, I had the Spaghetti which was very delicious but very rich. Glad I only had half the portion. I had the Quail, which was good but nothing extraordinary.

I think if you find something that you really like, it is worth an infrequent return trip. But, given the difficulty of getting a reservation, the wait once arrived, the overcrowded space, and limited menu, I would not recommended.

For pasta, go to Crispo...more options and better space.

Neopotism. Don't expect to get the right treatment if you don't know the host. You'll end up getting terrible seating.

Been to this restaurant previously and loved it! This experience was different. The restaurant was freezing with cold air blowing on us. The hostess was very nice and offered to turn it down or put us at the bar. We ended up staying in our seats upstairs. Food was average - Our waiter was non attentive and we could never get his attention. Very unfriendly.. I wouldn’t go back or recommend.

Worth the trouble of getting reservations. Staff is very friendly; food is good. Be warned that the pastas are very rich, so effectively larger servings than other dishes. Scallop crudo was amazing; wine list is fun with good staff recommendations.

While the food tasted good, neither the types of dishes nor their presentation, nor their creativity, was unusual enough for the restaurant to considered outstanding.

While I would recommend it for a single visit, it would not be a regular spot for me.

L'Artusi was fab, great food and lovely ambience and good value! When we were leaving the staff turned around and all said good night and thanked us. The couple sitting next to us were also very friendly and sweet. Left with really good vibes. It's a wonderful Greenwich Village spot that felt neighbourly yet cool. Will definitely be back
