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.

Food was my problem with this restaurant. The Squid and Octopus Stew was very salty. the Chicken Paillard, although made tasty with dried Thyme, was pounded way too thin and therefore was overcooked and very dry. The dressing on the Salad topping was good.
Service and ambiance were great.

All I can say is that this restaurant is a not to be missed experience, whether you are celebrating a special event, or just a night out with friends for a delicious meal. And if you’re lucky enough to get Sage as your waiter, you’ll be doubly grateful.

An NYC must! The customer service (you feel loved and welcomed the moment you walk in the door), the atmosphere, and OMG THE FOOD - ALL spectacular! I highly recommend getting an outside table when the temperature allows. If you are going and have a special occasion, be sure to let them know - they will go over and above to make your celebration one to remember!

We arrived half an hour early for our reservation, but the manager could not have been more welcoming. From the moment he greeted us with glasses of Prosecco to the cake with sparklers they presented to my wife for her birthday, it was all perfect.
Food was excellent, matched by the service,

I requested a special table which is where we sat. The service was excellent. The waiter gave his opinion on what to order both good and great meals. He helped us suggest a wine which we really enjoyed. Definitely a place to go without feeling stuffy or pretentious.

Over many years I have had many meals at the Trattoria. This time I had the best meal I have ever had there. But, the noise level is too high.

Disappointed with tuna-ordered rare but came out more “medium” than rare. Tuna was somewhat flavorless but eggplant and fava bean base almost saved the dish. Was somewhat surprised—eat here often with excellent results. Have to believe dish was just an aberration

I know good Italian food. I am Italian and I cook gourmet Italian. This place gets it right. Attentive and courteous staff-our server was an absolute peach. Lively atmosphere and great location across from Carnegie Hall. Recommend the Chicken Milanese entree and the fried artichokes appetizer. The parmesan au gratin potatoes are to die for. Excellent choice for NYC Italian.

The noise level at the bar was over the top because there was one person there who kept on laughing hysterically. So we moved to a table. Other than that it was such a wonderful experience as for the food, service, and ambiance. Lovely restaurant. Everyone is super friendly and accommodating.

The restaurant has changed. Very expensive and just ok. Bread served was dry and hard. A cheese pizza is 26.00. For that price I can get a pizza at the Four Seasons. WS. Dry disappointed.
