One of the best italian meals I’ve had outside Italy. Found it the first time by just walking by. Staff is friendly attentive and well informed. If you don’t see on menu just ask
The service was amazing, along with the decor and classy style of the restaurant..
Excelente lugar, seguro regreso, la comida y la atención de primera. Precios razonables. Como es día de San Valentín estaba llenísimo y aunque yo tenía reservación me temía que tendría que esperar y gran sorpresa favorable cuando nos asignaron mesa tan pronto como llegamos.
Best Italian food I ever had
I really have to leave a compliment for the staff. The place was a zoo, it was Valentine’s Day. Everyone, from the busboys, to the coat check girl, to the Maitre d’, to the waiter, were friendly and accommodating. They made every extra effort to make it a memorable evening. This is a place worth going to, for the food and the service.
Very disappointing meal. We love Italian food and the quality was simply sub par. The “101 layer lasagna” was dry and tasteless.
The staff is so friendly. When you walk in you feel like family. Food was excellent and the service was great.
Great food choices Good service.
Very nice restaurant. Food was good. Worth going to.
It was wonderful!!!!! Took a while to get anyone’s attention when we walked in but other than that it was great!
Friendly staff, fun atmosphere and amazing food! An excellent place to eat after seeing a performance at the Met. Came based on a recommendation from a friend and so glad we did! Would recommend highly and will definitely go back during a future trip. Thank you!
Missed the red snapper livornese in the clay pot that is why we came very disappointed that it is no longer on the menu. I understand that I am not the only one who misses it- that everyone asks for it.
We were a party of 12. We were celebrating my daughter's debut at Carnegie Hall, so it was a very special evening. They made our evening very special in every way. The food and wine were good, as well as the desert. I loved that restaurant before, but now, I love it even more. They were no kind and attentive. Thank you for making our event so special.
A delightful evening - great food, attentive but not lingering staff. Good prices for NYC! I had a reservation and they took our party of 3 immediately - no waiting!
Excellent service and food. Loved every bite. Request to sit upstairs. Nice ambiance. Overpriced but typical for NYC. Definitely recommend.
Family birthday celebration. We were a party of 13, so they put us in the wine room at a long table, which we didn’t even know was an option, and it was perfect!
We were at a concert at Carnegie Hall, which is just across the street, and looking for some late night dining. This restaurant is very convenient and open late. There's a variety of Italian dishes. What we had was very good and pretty reasonably priced. They have a nice wine selection. This is a somewhat tourist-centric area, so I can imagine it being pretty loud inside at certain times and/or crowded, but that was not the case for us as we arrived about 1030 pm on a cold night. Service was friendly and helpful. Food quality was also good, although we had only a burrata and tomato salad and a pizza with some wine. Good choice if you are in the area late.
From the moment we stepped inside Trattoria Dell’Arte we were treated like family! Manager Yusuf shared the history of the restaurant and pointed out the amazing artwork throughout. Our server Joe was attentive and personable. Joe asked just the right questions to recommend selections from appetizers to desserts. Simply saying the food was superb isn’t enough. The cannolis were the best you’ll find in NYC hands down.
I have been here quite a few time, always a great experience. The tuna steak is a must for at least one person at you table, best tuna steak you will have. Also sharing the antipasto is a great way to start, always a great selection and just enough food to satisfy.
Most likely, owing to its great location across from Carnegie Hall, Trattoria Dell Arte was packed the night we were there with concert goers as well as some large parties. The greeters did an admirable job of seating people in the long line waiting for tables. My husband and I were happily seated in a little nook where we could sit side by side and hear each other, but the line of people in front of our table waiting to be seated and the clusters of wait staff trying to cross that line to get to customers was a bit distracting. That said, the food and wine choices were good, a bit expensive, but once out order was taken, the food arrived quickly. Very good, attentive service. My husband’s seafood mixture was hot and tasty, my vegetable plate arrived in a lukewarm state except for the steaming delicious lemon spinach. We even had time for a very tasty cannoli dessert. Overall, a very good experience.
The ambiance was good and the service staff was friendly, but the food was not as we would have hoped. I ordered spaghetti carbonara with lobster and it was either warmed up or stood under the light for too long as the carbonara cream sauce turned into oil and lobster pieces were dry and even crispy. We also ordered a 3 piece veggie appetizer. I guess they were out of 1 of the veggie appetizer selections so they just replaced it with spinach instead of asking what we would like to replace that item with. I was there with 3 kids and non of them liked the spinach option that was chosen for us. I did not get the value for the money we spent there.
one of the nicest and best restaurants I have been to in NYC. Staff could not have been nicer, food was fantastic- 3 course lunch for an amazing value. Home made cookies handed out at the end of the meal gratis. All in all, a terrific experience.
Hadn't been there in at least 20 years but we will go back soon. Our table was right in the path of the waiters leaving the kitchen, so it was a bit like having dinner on the freeway, but the service was good and the food was outstanding. I often order branzino elsewhere, and it's always good, but this was the best so far. So moist and flavorful, just great. The vegetable starters were also wonderful. Don't miss the au gratin potatoes. I definitely recommend this place.
normally service is GREAT, but this visit had a disappointing experience.
Food was great as usual - but hard to really enjoy when your being ignored......
Top 5 favorite in all of NYC
Wonderful space awesome food and service. Very accommodating
Always looking CE it!
Perfect restaurant especially if going to or from Carnegie Hall.
This place kept popping up on lists of restaurants near Carnegie Hall, so we thought we'd give it a try. Wow, that was a great decision! Excellent service, delicious and ample food, and wonderful drinks. The server was fantastic, warm, and attentive, handling our party of 13 with ease. We will go out of our way to return in the future.
Amazing! The host Jeff was great and made our experience special. 10/10 recommend
Engagement dinner celebration
Been many times. One of our go to places in the city. Best antipasto bar by far in N. Y.
Excellent food. I highly recommend anything with the house made fennel sausage in it. The little amenities made the difference. A small chocolate cookie and limoncello brought to the table complimentary a the end of the meal was the best. I highly recommend this restaurant
Sophisticated whimsy, cheerful staff, creative menu, wonderful food. The ambience is conducive to good humor and warm feelings, so everyone talks, making a packed house a bit noisy. Not a place for the sullen, then, unless they hope to become less sullen.
This was my second time to this restaurant and it did not disappoint. Amazing greeting when we walked in, sat at a lovely table with an outstanding server. (I am so sorry I did not get your name sir, we were 3 women on Thursday night, later in the evening with a bottle of wine, champagne to start on the upper level.) The food was outstanding! I had the Chicken Piccata Milanese, I am craving it right now and cannot wait to eat there again! Thank you so much for making our evening the best one out of our trip!
I have gone several times to have a meal at Trattoria Della ‘Arte. Its masterpiece is the Veal Parmiggiana. This time for lunch, I have chosen the Tordelli Bolognese, a meat- filled ravioli with three meat ragu sauce. It is also amazing. For cold days it is perfect. As usual, to eat um Trattoria Della’ Arte is a must.
Raymond is great. He sat us even though we arrived two hours ahead of our reservation.
