Across from Carnegie Hall, Trattoria Dell’Arte features the largest antipasto bar in New York, a sprawling selection of seafood and vegetable specialties perfect for parties of all sizes. Designed after a Tuscan artist’s studio, the rooms include half-finished paintings, oversized sculptures of fragmented body parts, a gallery of Italian noses, a wine cellar dining room, and candle-filled private rooms.

The menu focuses on northern Italian specialties such as the steak Florentine, double veal chop, seafood specialties of the Mediterranean, and unforgettable desserts.

As local New Yorkers, we have dined at Fireman's restaurants since forever. And we have never had a bad experience. Until tonight. It is completely unacceptable for a waiter to tell patrons of the restaurant that "there should be no billionaires and millionaires, and that the I wrote a play or script about how I kill them all" Then the waiter said "I am living Fireman's dream not my dream" Lovely. The Fireman restaurants are known for their hospitality. That has always been important to Fireman and his group. There was nothing hospitable about this waiter and how he made our table feel. We are all entitled to our political opinions. However, a waiter should never engage with patrons in such a manner. It's completely unacceptable.

I had made a reservation on Open Table which was accommodated. The Maitre D apologized that though i had requested a quiet table, there really were not quiet spots. He seated us towards the front of the restaruant in a large booth, which was perhaps the “quietest place”. Unfortunately we were near the entrance and it was very drafty and cold. The service however was excellent. Our waiter was kind and friendly and served us in a very timely fashion. The food was very well and the timing of the courses was great. We did not feel rushed. The location was perfect for my 91 year old aunt to be able to walk across the street to a concert at Carnegie Hall. The prices were a bit high, but location, location, location.

The food was, as always excellent. The service was perfect. We were there pre-concert, so the noise level was okay.
Such a convenient restaurant right across from Carnegie Hall.

Absolutely fantastic food - but if you order the 101-layer lasagna, you'd better be hungry! It's huge!

We used to go here for dinner many times when we lived in Manhattan a decade ago. Some things were as good - our waiter was excellent - but some things looked like they had slipped....the food wasn't as hot as it should have been (that thin line when it is an annoyance rather than something to complain about) and it did look like they had tried to squeeze what customers in, we don't remember nearly sitting on someones lap!!!

All said, would we go back? Sure - the good more than outweighs the bad.....

A group of ten friends gathered early on Sunday before a performance at Carnegie Hall later that evening. I booked the table a few weeks in advance and asked if I could make arrangements to treat the table to wine and appetizers on a separate bill. Both my phone contact and our excellent waiter could not have been more accommodating. (My phone contact emailed a wine list to me.) Our waiter listened carefully to my request and kept our glasses filled. At his suggestion I ordered two pizzas to be shared with the drinks; they were delicious and the diners loved them. Our orders were taken and the entrees drew raves. We lingered over coffee and the bill for the drinks and entree was discreetly delivered to me.
Others in our party had dined at Trattoria Dell'Arte before; I had not. I can assure you that I will return for the excellent food and service!

Here for Sunday brunch with a 7 year old.
The choices from the antipasti counter were disappointing. However the s’mores chocolate waffles were a big visual and taste wow. The dessert tartufo was oversized and delicious. The 7 year old hasn’t stopped talking about her meal. Pick your meal wisely, and this place is delicious fun.

We were seated 10 feet away from entrance but the host kept making people stand right next to our table. Not very comfortable when people stare at you and your food.

Plus, the Cold air was abundant, they probably should have installed more heaters or managed the swarm of people coming in and going better.

The napkins were soiled (not sanitary eh) but we got them replaced.

Waiters were in a rush to serve, so the would hear half the things and miss on the others.

Food was excellent but pricey though.

Overall a 3/5.

On a recent trip to New York to see the Eagles, we went to your restaurant. The service was fantastic and the food was great as well. We both had the lasagna. Before the main dish we had their appetizer tray that was out of this world. I would recommend this place for all of your favorite Italian dishes. Leave room for desert- A must!

A warm and welcoming place for a great meal. We had a party of three. Each one had something different: the veal, the tuna and the filet. Everything was perfect. Do not miss the artichoke appetizer.
