We had a large party visiting NYC for the weekend and this was our last night out. It was just perfect. The food was delectable. Marco our waiter was fantastic. The setting was festive and warm. Everyone loved it and can’t wait to come back. The best pizza, chicken Parmesan and artichoke appetizer to die for. What a wonderful experience. Love love this gem.

We were quickly checked-in with our reservation. We mentioned we had a show to go to in 1 hour at Carnegie, and they did miracles getting our order on time, so we don't miss the show. Food was delicious, including the lasagna, thin-crust pizza, and Branzino. I will come back with more time another day!

Delicious food in a very friendly restaurant. The wait staff was quick to fulfill every request. The veal in the veal piccata was so very tender. The minestrone was delicious on a cold evening—Full of spinach and other vegetables

The questionnaire on open table is a failure when asks about noise level. Most restaurants are too noisy which is true of Trattoria dell’Arte. Other then that. this is one of the better restaurants I have eaten at. It is far above its sister? restaurant Fiorella’s in service especially and in food.
The. table bread was superior, Fiorella’s bread is so oily, greasy you did to wash your hands after touching it. They attempt to add extras no better than the house alternatives. The anti pasta bar is minimum. Fiorella’s waiters are, terse, unpleasant, as when I tried to order take out food when they busy (I didn’t need a table). We no longer dine there. The food at Trattoria dell’Arte was surprisingly near excellent. We had a large selection of anti-pasta items. The 4 of us had 3 different fish dishes. They willingly substituted sides from other main courses when we requested it. They had gluten free options even in dessert for one member of our party. I ordered my favorite Meringue cake. Why isn’t it on the menu? They bought a pot of coffee. It was an enjoyable evening.

We went in for an after theater meal. Had reservations and they seated us right away. The food was ok but really not anything worth what they were priced at. Heart of palm salad was good, the fried artichokes were almost painful to eat. They really should have been cleaned better before frying them. The pizza is definitely not the best despite claims to the contrary on the menu. Service was attentive but we tried to order three different bottles of wine and they were not the year that was advertised in the menu. Bit surprising that they would not update their wine menu and prices accordingly. It is a fun, lively environment but otherwise meh.

The restaurant was extremely crowded and exceptionally noisy. It was virtually impossible to engage in conversation with the noise level beyond imaginable. In addition, our dishes were served within minutes of ordering them as the waiters were intent on getting people fed and out as quickly as possible. Everything was rush-rush and intolerably noisy.

Tourist trap, nothing really tastes Italian, sounds Italian or looks Italian in there. Pre-made food, heated up in some ways with a lot of salt and peppers to give a little taste. Save yourself from a bad experience.

I’ve been going here for 30 years never disappointed. We are always made to feel at home. The veal Milanese is fantastic along with their version of carbonara.

We really enjoyed our meal experience and didn't want to leave. Since it's across from Carnegie Hall, I was worried that it might be bland and touristy, but far from it. The food was wonderful, the decor was stylish and the atmosphere was sophisticated. We hope to go back soon.

We were visiting NYC and staying at the Michelangelo Hotel, which is a short distance away, so convenience was a big plus. Our reservations were for Sunday, December 1st at 6:30. Although the weather was rainy and windy and trying to snow, the atmosphere inside was warm, friendly, and energetic. All four of us ordered different plates of food. We sampled each other’s plates and were surprised that ALL were equally wonderful. I had pizza and could not decide which I wanted most...the server suggested that I have half and half. (I had half Margherita and half meatball.) Without a doubt, it was the best pizza I have ever eaten. My husband had spaghetti and meatballs and said it was fantastic. One of our friends had lasagna and loved it. His wife ordered a pasta dish that she really enjoyed. We shared two desserts. Both were delicious. The service was over-the-top in every way, which greatly added to our overall experience. We will definitely return the next time we visit NYC. I only wish we had a restaurant like this in Atlanta!!!

Very accommodating... the other couple that was supposed to meet us informed us that their flight was late and they needed an extra half hour. We arrived promptly and explained the situation and the host modified our reservation even though it was a busy Saturday night. And then 10 minutes before the new reservation time, I received another message about extra traffic due to an accident, so we would be dining alone. The host was once again able to take care of us, and he was very gracious. He never made us feel like we were asking for anything special, even though we knew that we were messing up his schedule. And the food was fantastic. I had the lasagna (which had about 20 layers to it), and my wife enjoyed the scallops.

This restaurant is my first choice whenever I want to meet someone I consider important and especially when I want to be able to engage in a conversation without invasive noise. Secondly, the food is fresh and delicious and there is something on the menu for everyone. Milton Glaser's surrounding artwork just adds to the pleasure.

1st time at this absolutely gorgeous restaurant. Greeted with a glass of champagne and shown to a delightful table for 2 in the window. Service was excellent! And the food: scallops were succulent and the meatballs old school. Then had the lobster carbonara which was sublime. Top it off with fine coffee and lemoncello tart and you can’t wait to come back! Great Sunday night!
