Favorite Italian Restaurant! - best PIZZA in NYC – I frequent this place because I work close by. I think it's great and one of the best Italian Restaurants in the city. The Antipasto bar is delicious.! (include the eggplant capinata (sp?) on your plate... amazing!) and the Pizza is incredible (super think crust, brick oven.. just get the margarita) ..sometimes we order a pizza for the table to start.. it's very thin. And enjoy the bread they bring to the table..it's awesome! We usually order pasta dishes, i love the clams, but everything is great! It can get very noisy in the main room, so I try to request a booth. We've always had great service with friendly wait staff (some are actors and very fun). And we use the private rooms for private dining, which is great. The drinks are nice too. nice size martinis and wine.. they give you a carafe, so it's like a glass and 1/2.. also, the iced tea is wonderful! It's on the pricey side (entrees in the $20s) drinks about $14.) It's a nice place for drinks at the bar and a plate of antipasto (you can choose your favorite items for your plate), or for a full blown dinner. Definitely a must see in NYC.. you'll get a great NYC experience if you're traveling from out of town. You'll remember this place!
This place is GREAT the service was excellent our waiter Joe was the best waiter i ever had in my life ask for him the food was great and the dessert was great also im going back real soon the veal parm was great
THIS PLACE IS AMAZING! – You gotta try the Margarita Pizza! I know, I know...pizza everywhere in nyc, BUT this was the thinnest, most crispy holy trinity -crust-sauce and cheese-of pizza perfection!!! I LOVE the wine list-Sonoma Cutrer and Stags Leap-wow! Perfect! Coming from SF,being a bit of a wine snob, its so pleasent to see quality wines vs. just ordering by color as I am used to doing in NYC. No wonder this place was packed!
Best Restaurant in NYC – I shuddered when I read the the upstate NYer's hostile words about my favorite NYC restaurant. If they were only wise enough to TRY the Veal Parmigiana, they would not only have tasted one of the most flavorful, tender, delicious veal ever, but they'd eat their words regarding portion size. I usually have to take half home for lunch the next day, it's so awesomely large.
They also have fabulous pasta dishes, most notably the Lobster Linquine Carbonara, the Agnolotti spinach raviolis, and the to-die-for Tordelli stuffed with veal and topped with bolognese.
As for the service, only once-- after a Carnegie concert-- when they obviously got slammed with a full dining room of hungry cranky people [the concert was bad!]-- I got crappy service from a waiter who seemed to not even care to apologize for it. But that's one incident in DOZENS of visits I have made to this wonderful gastronomic delight of a place. The waiters are smart and talented and fun, and consistently regale me with their sharp knowledge of the menu and wines, and ability to help me decide what to order. They are especially helpful in sorting through the long list of excellent antipasto items... which you can order off the menu... although I recommend you "point and pick" your antipasto course-- the waiter gives you a slip of paper with your table number on it, you walk up to the antipasto bar, and the friendly guy behind the counter assembles your plate as you select each item. Then the waiter brings the plate to the table.
Yes, the prices are high. Hello. NYC rent is a heck of a lot higher than a small upstate NY town. Save your extra dollars in an envelope marked Trattoria Dell Arte-- and when you've amassed a few hundred, take yourself and a friend out for a dining experience where money will be no object-- and worth every penny!
Amazing food, super friendly environment, and great location!!!!!! – From the second I walked into Trattoria Del Arte I felt welcome. The very stylish and charismatic matrade greeted us with such enthusiasm I could have sworn he new us! (Later I found out his name is Brandon. Make sure to ask to him! He's a doll!) Once seated I had the most amazing fried artichokes, eggplant rollatini, and tuna steak! Everything was extremely fresh, and with the extensive choice of wines, I could never try them all. Plus our waiter kept us laughing the entire meal. Now I've lived in New York my whole life, and have never found a restaurant that makes me feel so welcome! Keep up the good work Trattoria!!!!!!!
Very good food, celeb sightings & loud! – I have eaten regularly at Trattoria dell' Arte for over 5 years. Usually I sit at the bar, but I have also dined at tables. It's a shame a few of the other reviewers had a disappointing experience at this restaurant but realistically there's no restaurant that can please everyone all the time. It's true this place can get VERY loud, especially on fall-winter-spring weekends before 8pm showtimes and I have seen lines stretch out the front door. The bar is extremely friendly and a great place to chat with other patrons. There is seating galore (including outside, upstairs and two private rooms downstairs!). There is a fantasic Antipasto Bar with an incredible variety of delicious, fresh vegetables, seafood, etc. Their cracker-thin pizzas are the best I've had. The Tordelli with bolognese sauce is wonderful and my latest must have dish. I've eaten most of the menu and have not been disappointed. True, it is not a cheap eats place but I do think you get a good value for the quality of food served.
Top of the Line in NY! – I have to say that this restaurant is the top of the line in NYC. I get so frustrated when I go out, I can NEVER find a restaurant that has GREAT food and AWESOME service. This is the place! Can you tell me another restaurant that is inviting and makes you feel like your at home? Can you tell me of a restaurant that passes out trays of cookies, chocolates & sparkling wine...FOR FREE! Well if you can Iwould love to know. Until then I am going to continue to visit Trattoria Dell Arte!
I love this place!!! – I don't know what these people or talking about, unless you have to know someone to get good service, I absolutely have no complaints about this place! Yes, it is expensive, but what do you expect from its location? I have had only the best at this place and the cannoli's are to die for. Ask for George, he'll take care of you!
Teflon Restaurant – The service is lacking, the tables are too close together, and the food is just okay at this teflon oldie, which despite these drawbacks seems to get good reviews. I suppose its location, just across from Carnegie Hall and the NY City Center, is a plus, but neither the food nor the decor (perhaps titillating in the 80s but old hat now) nor the service (ranging from diffident to obsequious) justifies its rating or the prices they charge. It is impossible to have a conversation without adjacent tables overhearing everything you say.
Horrible Service – Went to this restaurant with a group of friends and had the worst service. The waiter forgot many orders and argued with guests. Besides having an attitute and being very rude to us he also messed up the bill. Would never go back!
