Pre/post Theatre
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.

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!

Our dinner experience was fabulous. The service was impeccable and attentive. The food was delicious and comes out rather quickly when you are there for the early dinner service.

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.

Food was amazing, line was to the door all night but then it was valentines and we had a show across the street at Carnegie Hall. Very busy but they had us out the door in plenty of time. Overall, well worth the visit.

My wife and I visited Trattoria Dell'Arte on Valentine's Eve 2020. The place was bustling with activity, fortunately we had a reservation as otherwise we would have been out of luck. We were quickly seated and had very little wait before drinks and bread were on our table. We both ordered the 101 Layer Lasagna, which was quite delicious and certainly large enough for two to share. Following our meal we passed on the dessert menu because we tickets for a show at Carnegie Hall. The restaurant is superbly located if attending events at Carnegie. We never felt ruched to complete our meal even though the place was packed and it was such a busy night. We enjoyed our meal at the restaurant, will certainly be back again and definitely encourage anyone that asks about Trattoria Dell'Arte to give 'em a try.

Trattoria Dell/Arte was a great choice for our Valentine's Dinner. We were going to a performance at the Met and the restaurant is right across the street. We were staying at The Dream Hotel and that was 2 blocks away. So convenient to Central Park, Times Square, etc. The ambience was great. We were seated at the lower level in front of a fire place (they have 2) with candles all around and chocolates (it was Valentine's Day, remember!) scattered on the table. Our server, Isabella, was great. She was honest in recommending dishes and also knew her wines. She gave us several samples of wines to taste. Unfortunately, we were to full to have desert but the ones we saw looked delicious. We'll have to come back. And we will.

I wanted to have a dinning experience on Valentines Day, especially since we were visiting NYC. A friend recommended Trattoria Dell’Arte. Valentines Day or not, Trattoria Dell’Arte is a must when in NYC! The staff makes feel like family and the food is delicious.

We were totally amazed at the staff - all so fantastically friendly and recognized us by name. Isabella waited on us with expert advice and very efficient. She then complemented our after dinner drink to celebrate our anniversary! Above and beyond!
The food was also way beyond expectations. Such unique dishes displayed so beautifully!
