This is one of the very best restaurants in NYC, and is consistently excellent year on year. The vibe is great, its pumping with energy but not too loud to talk, the service is always excellent, but sometimes a bit rushed (you can ask your server to slow things up a bit).
Not to be missed is the beef carpaccio or the often-available wagyu carpaccio; the housemade riccotta dip if its available; the roasted mushrooms - if you do not order these then you are doing it all wrong!; all the pastas but esp. the orecchiette. The meats and seafood are great, but frankly, the move here is plenty of apps and then a few pastas. Leave room for the olive oil cake, which is transplendent!
Its worth the hassle to get in, but if you're willing to eat a bit later, its not nearly as hard to snag a table.
This may well be your new fave place if you have never come...

I was underwhelmed, and I’ve eaten at places like Carbone, Bar Pitti etc. The food was good but no better then others competing at the same level. I guess for me it was the waiter, don’t rush me into deciding I came for a late dinner after the theater it’s not like you need the table. Wouldn’t be my first Italian recommendation.

Dined at L’Artusi following a recommendation from a friend and can honestly say, the food was some of the best I have ever tasted. Personally, I found the ambiance of the restaurant amazing and the service impeccable.. only reason for marking down a point is due to my partner feeling cold, however I didn’t notice this myself and was easily rectified by getting her coat from the cloakroom.
For the quality of the food and drinks, prices are very reasonable.

We were just gutted we couldn’t squeeze in another visit during our trip!

The restaurant itself was great and had a fab atmosphere. However the food was really disappointing. I ordered fish and it sounded great on the menu, but when it arrived it was just a piece of fish on a plate with lots of olives. The server did not recommend I order a side or anything. My dessert also sounded amazing on the menu but when it arrived it was just pieces of dry toast with apple on top. I would not recommend this restaurant or return there are so many other places and options to go to.

In NYC for a quick vacation and was planning on Del’Anima but they are shutting down so booked L’artusi and was only able to get a 10 PM( fine since it’s 7PM in SF.)
1. The place has a happening sexy vibe. Was packed and alive when we got there.
2. The hosts were friendly welcoming and efficient.
3. Our server Heather was excellent.
4. Food and drink is where they fell down:
Thought the Manhattan’s were a bit over Vermouthed.
The wine list was fine. Had a nice Fiano. My mistake on the Red.
Now the food was really disappointingly mediocre.
The only really excellent dish was the olive oil cake.
The pasta’s were all overcooked and that is really a no no in this restaurant. The Octopus was a poorly balanced dish and the Branzino so so. Decent Salad of
Chicories but overall the food gets a C.
5. Summary. The sexy happening vibe here may keep drawing people in, but the food won’t be bringing ‘em back. I don’t know if part of the problem was that the kitchen had had it by 11 PM, and I fully understand the challenges of the restaurant business these days, but when we’re paying this much, it’s got to be better
Cheers to Heather, the bright spot of the meal.

It was my boyfriend’s birthday, and I made reservations so early in advance. It was quite disappointing when we got there that we got probably the worst table in the whole restaurant. We were directly in the middle of the service station where bus boys were fooling around, being passed by with trash bins, brooms, and broken glass. We were excited to come here, and I felt that the experience was effected the moment we sat down. The food was impeccable as always.... I guess I should have requested another table, so in the end it was probably my fault. I really think the two tables in the service area should be removed all together, I can’t imagine anyone being able to have the best experience possible in that location.

Food was not as good as I expected. Had to return a today's special with Uni in it because pasta was soggy... We tried 3 different pastas but all seemed to taste the same. To be honest a bit disappointed with the service too. They first tried to move us to a seat in between tables when they clearly had availability elsewhere. I had to ask three times to get us a seat where it was slightly quieter. Server rarely came around to check and we had to ask multiple times to get his attention. I would never take my date here as it's not as impressive as advertised. Especially if they were a real foodie.

Vert good place overall. Not quite the epitome of fine dining reviews would lead you to expect. Service was perfunctory, not exactly rude but rather dismissive. Pastas were not exactly extraordinary but very very good. Wines by glass just so so.
