The staff at Trattoria is always so warm, welcoming and accommodating and the ambiance is the same. Always a great meal and great overall dining experience.

Depending on what is ordered, portions can be too large. Menu has a great deal of variety. Room was a tad too noisy.

This restaurant never fails to make me look good when I bring important guests to dine. The atmosphere is always lively, but quiet enough to hear conversations. The staff could not be better. the head waiter/host treats everyone like an important guest. The food is so plentiful and delicious. Do you get my drift?

The staff was very accommodating to my wife's severe and complicated food allergies; which allowed us to celebrate her birthday while on a recent weekend get-a-way to Manhattan. Their Lasagna Bolognese is also truly fantastic!

The food was amazing but our service was lacking! We were served our cocktails pretty quickly but we never received our artichoke appetizer! Our waiter never checked on us for more drinks....once we said we didn’t want a bottle of wine he ignored us. But we were drinking nice selection of bourbon and vodka. Guess he heard our southern accent and figured we weren’t locals. Took awhile to get our check as well. I would recommend for delicious food but stay on top of your waiter!! We tipped the usual 20% but wish we hadn’t to prove a point. Southern hospitality, I guess😊

Our server Isabella was fluent in Italian and made our guests from Italy feel welcomed. The food service and atmosphere are wonderful. This place has been our favorite in midtown for years.

I don’t get it. Food is ok. Tables are too close together, very noisy and overpriced. I guess it appeals to tourists.

Restaurant is very nice...tables though very close together...would have liked more space....bar is nice but also in a very crowded and tight spot. Felt like everything was crowded.Artwork interesting??!! Food was very good. Waiter was good...were somewhat rushed...brought check without our asking for it and never asked if we wanted coffee..we wanted to order cappuccino and before we could ask he handed us the check!! Location perfect for Carnegie Hall and to the parking garage which is located next door.

Food was excellent, however, the portions were not large - although we left feeling full. Service was great. We were seated right away. As it started getting crowded, we felt we were not rushed in any way. Overall it was a great experience and would love to go back and try another dish.

I had been to Trattoria before and really loved it. I wanted to plan a special reunion for my family and reserved a table of 10 one week in advance. We had a nice table but I was really dissapointed my food was served cold as well as one of the members in our party. The waiter was kind to reheat it for us but I was not expecting this......not after paying the $500 tab plus the $100 tip. It was also extremely loud. We had to yell at each other. This was really dissapointing because it was our only evening out as a family together. I won't make this same mistake twice. Cynthia from San Antonio.

The restaurant was virtually empty and even with reservations they sat us (or squeezed us in) along 2-top row; so close to my neighbors table, I could have eaten off her plate. The food, subpar at best, was not worth the trip or $$$$. My chicken Milanese was so thin it was dry and looked like someone chewed it up, spit it out and they refried it. Horrible. Save your pennies and go somewhere else. Very disappointed.

My husband and I were in the city last Saturday and before out theater date I thought it would be nice to go to Trattoria Dell'Arte as he had not ever been there and I had not been in several years. The service was as friendly as I remember and our waiter was extremely nice. We received a complimentary glass of bubbly which was a nice treat to begin our meal. We then ordered the calamari and octopus casserole but were disappointed as the description did not lead us to think that the seafood would be in a dish full of marinara. My husband then ordered the scallops on a bed of swiss chard over-top creamy corn. He liked the dish but thought the swiss chard was a bit salty. I ordered three vegetables from the side bar in the back, broccoli raab, swiss chard au gratin and a mixture of mushrooms. They were all delicious. To finish off the meal, we ordered an Americano and the cannolis, which still are as delicious as I remember them, in a crispy lace cannoli shell. Overall I thought the restaurant was not as up to par as I remember, but the dessert gave me a happy feeling when I left! I might try again some time in the future.

They allow guests to take out their laptops and plop them on the table while they are eating! I paid $200 and felt I was at Starbucks! So un-classy for an upscale restaurant
