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.

Seriously divine! We went in the later evening on Thanksgiving and we’re pleasantly surprised to find the staff were upbeat, welcoming, and still at the top of their game after such a long day. We had a large party. Some ordered off the menu and several of us got the prix fixe traditional Thanksgiving meal. The food was seriously delicious. The servings were great- not so much you couldn’t eat it all but not so small that you felt like you didn’t get enough or it wasn’t a great value.

We requested a window table in the front because of the noise level and lack of space in the back, which despite being crowded seems very popular. We were given the table we requested, and enjoyed the reduced noise level, extra space and the very consistent, excellent food and service.

It was our anniversary and from the moment we walked in, they made us feel like royalty (or family!) with complimentary champagne and many well wishes. Our dessert came with a sparkler in it which made it even more special. The food was outstanding and home made.

food and service are good, timed well to be at the theater 10 minutes before performance.

The location is excellent:near City Center and Carnegie Hall and MOMA. serves all day from an interesting menu full of surprises:a vegetarian antepasta! The food was excellent in quality, presentation and authenticity. Staff could not have been more pleasant and helpful, accommodating to our change of plans and to the fact that I use a walker .

The best Italian food in all of New York City, and I’ve had a lot of Italian food.
Thinnest crust pizza I’ve ever had. Antipasto is out of this world… I dream about it 😳.
Will be coming back forever.

I think this restaurant was really impacted by the pandemic closures. We've been going to it for over 30 years. We were so disappointed. The service was slow and inattentive - and we were there early before the theater so it was not busy at all. My lasagna was very dry - like it was several days old. And it has always been my favorite dish there. And no bread offered at the table. Again, we've loved this place for years and hope it will get back to its former self by the next time we visit NYC.

Delightful dining experience! I had dined once before in 1990 when visiting NY, loved it and seeing it was still open in 2021, decided to try it again. Just as amazing as I remember. Friendly, competent staff, lively atmosphere and ridiculously delicious food. I ordered the lasagna and was thrilled with my decision! Will continue to visit when in New York.

We went here before a show at Carnegie Hall. Our waiter was great, the food was excellent. We were seated in a little alcove with two tables which was nice until another table was seated, then the noise was somewhat bothersome. Overall it was a lovely dinner!

Some of the dishes are good, but over priced. Unfortunately, all restaurants are dealing with increased food and staff costs, so not unusual.

Service was excellent and it was fairly crowded.

One of our favorite places. Comfortable atmosphere, though busy before and after theater, great art work on the walls, excellent Italian food, and superb service (by Anis, a waiter who's been there 29 years). Great place to go for a birthday; you'll be serenaded by all the waiters singing "Happy Birthday Total Stranger."
