LArtusi Ratings and Reviews
Hands down, our favorite restaurant in NYC. We have dined there 3 times in the past 2 years (everytime we've been in NYC since discovering it) and have had exceptional meals and service everytime. Sitting at the bar overlooking the kitchen is very entertaining, to watch the chefs at work. The food at L'Artusi is fantastic and the service is equally memorable, no attitude, very friendly, warm and welcoming. It is also an excellent value for the quality of the food and the experience. If you only eat at one nice restaurant in NYC, this is it!
This was my first time to dine at L'Artusi. I could only get a 5:30 p.m. reservation via Open Table, but my train was late (NJ Transit naturally...) and so I got to the restaurant at 5:55. But there were plenty of open tables. Hmmm... In any case, the food was wonderful: I started with the raw scallops and thimbleful of clam chowder. A bit too much lime juice on the scallops, but still tasty. Next were two pasta dishes, the bucatini with spicy meat sauce and mushroom stuffed ravioli. Both were excellent, the ravioli being creamy, fragrant and smooth. My salad was the "butter lettuce" salad--enough for two! It was like a stack of pancakes made with many leaves of buttercrunch lettuce, but with gorgonzola, walnuts, something else crunchy (pomegranate seeds?) and chunks of black olive hidden in the middle. It too was delicious, but too much for one person to finish.
Fantastic service and food, as has become commonplace for LArtusi. Ordered the ricotta special , 2 starters, a vegetable, and 2 pastas, which seemed like a good amount of food for a date. Received great help as well with the wine, though the wine was a bit cold (admittedly opening up more once left in the decanter). Spectacular experience overall.
was really excited to try l'artusi since i have heard great things - while the food was awesome, the noise level was earth-shaking (on a tuesday!). i could barely hear myself think, let alone hear the person across from me speak. was pretty disappointed as this was a special occasion. the atmosphere ruined what would have otherwise been a great experience.
I’ll keep it short and sweet. OUTSTANDING!!! Cheese, to Apps to Chefs Specials were just amazing. Pasta was immaculate. Wine selection is immense!! They have good beers and great cocktails. Dessert was mouth watering. Danielle was a joy as she gave us a great table, treated us like regulars and acknowledged our special night which was our 5th Anniversary. I would let them cook every meal for me if I could.
It's not easy to get a reservation here, but well worth the effort. We came at opening time on a Monday night in January, and the place rapidly filled up. All severs were friendly, prompt and personal. Cocktails were generous, appetizers (tuna tartare and hamachi) were wonderfully seasoned and sauced. We had been told not to skip the pasta course (good advice) and the cavatelli with wild boar ragu and pappardelle with white Bolognese were to die for. Combined with glasses of Barbera d'Asti, we shared the spicy grilled octopus, also excellent. Then we forced ourselves to try the excellent desserts and coffee. Hazelnut tart with hazelnut gelato and warm, crisp apple tart with buttermilk gelato sent us on our way. Fantastic meal.
L'Artusi exceeded our expectations! We went for my boyfriend's dinner, and the servers treated us so well. We got free tastings of their carrot soup and beet ravioli. The olive oil cake for dessert was the right move. All in all, impeccable food, service and ambiance. A top choice for Italian in the West Village.
I’m wife gave me a gift of dinner at L’Artusi for my birthday. What a treat! This is a great Italian restaurant. Food is prepared tapas style, but the portions are large. We had red Kale salad and mushrooms to start. The kale salad was exceptionally good as were the mushrooms, prepared with mild chili and a poached egg. We then had cavatelli with wild boat ragu and broken squid ink pasta with tuna and puttanesca sauce. Both were excellent. We were stuffed but went for dessert—an apple tart. We would highly recommend this restaurant.
There's a reason this restaurant makes all the 'top italian' lists for New York City. With its unassuming entrance you wouldn't know from the outside what a great meal, upscale atmosphere and vibrant place this is. Its superlative in every way, the food, the ambiance and the service. Its not an easy reservation to get as its not huge, but worth trying a month ahead to score a table. Or try for a bar seat. And we always appreciate a restaurant that is on time honoring reservations, they know how to plan it out well. Very reasonable choices of wine by the glass or bottle and cocktails are not overpriced and neither is food. Knowledgeable waitstaff that describe the specials with details, managers that check to make sure everything is to your satisfaction. Yes, the tables are close together, but its a narrow space. Upstairs, the tables are a bit further apart.
Fantastic as always. Great wine list, excellent pastas, and fantastic mains. Go with the chicken as your main course. It’s the best you’ll have in town. For appetizers, the mushrooms are amazing as is the beef carpaccio. You can’t go wrong with anything on the menu, they’ve perfected it all. And the specials are also always a treat. Extremely consistent. Always a great option for a casual week night meal or a special occasion.
Unfortunately we went for a special occasion, my husband’s birthday, and rushed to get to our reservation on time. When we arrived another patron was sitting next to our designated table (at the very very back of the restaurant), side by side next to his date so that he had to be asked to move when we arrived and he did so begrudgingly. Then we had to be subjected the entire dinner to his extremely LOUD voice and appropriate conversation and gestures with his date. Honestly the whole dinner and experience was ruined for my husband and for me. We couldn’t hear one another and if not for my husband being an extremely kind person who didn’t want me to say anything, I would have asked for our check after one drink. I had been so looking to dining there and now -Never again, L’Artusi.
Fell in love with L'Artusi from the moment we stepped foot inside. The staff was very welcoming, the ambience was energetic yet very romantic. Food was amazing and the service was equally s wonderful. Book in advance as I booked our reservation a month before our date.
We had 2 pastas which were very good and a Hamachi appetizer which was good. However the
crispy sweet breads were either over cooked or re-heated and were not very good, to be kind.
I order sweet breads whenever I see them on the menu and these were about as bad as I have tasted. So over all I would suggest avoid the sweet breads here and enjoy everything else which is pretty good and fairly priced. The service was also first rate.
