We had been once before and enjoyed everything. We were just as happy this time. Food is great, unique dishes. Everyone is super friendly and attentive without breathing down your neck. We had early reservations and place was really filling up when we were done but there was no pressure from anyone to get out. By comparison, noise level was very tolerable. Clearly a full restaurant has volume but we were not shouting to our dinner partners. We are all looking forward to going again!

Another wonderful meal at IL Luogo Restaurant. My cousins who are world travellers came into NY for a visit. I suggested to them IL Luogo since they are Italian and enjoy good food and wine. They were not disappointed! They loved the beautiful decor for the upcoming Valentine's Day celebration. The food was top knoch. One had the full branzino fish which was carefully deboned tableside. One had the mix grill which was plentiful. One has the Linguine fra diavolo, which was outstanding! The service by the staff was great, very attentive. The wine was flowing and enjoyable. My guest compared it to a fine dining place in Italy and I agree! Make it a point to visit this GEM!

We went for restaurant week, and the experience was great. The appetizers were delicious and came out quickly. The entrees came out hot and fresh and were delicious. We ordered the veal picatta and the veal francese and they were both cooked perfectly. The portions were a bit smaller for the price fixed menu, however, the absolute perfect portions! The chocolate mousse cake was decadent and yum! Overall, great experience and it was our first time. We will definitely return for a date night!

My wife and I come to Il Luigi several times a year. We love variety of the menu, especially the veal dishes and the duck. The atmosphere is cozy and it’s one of our favorite places.

This was my second time dining and this fine establishment and I cannot believe how amazing everything was once again. No detail is overlooked and the price point is very fair for the quality of food, service and attention to detail. This is a must try!

I enjoying visiting IL Luogo during the holiday season as the restaurant , both inside and outside, is beautifully decorated. Each year is unique and beautiful. My friends were new to Luogo. They were very impressed. Our bartender Gianna was very knowledgeable about wines and specialty drinks. Arielle the hostess, was great and seated us in a timely manner. Our waiter, Arlenido suggested a bacon wrapped shrimp and scallop. Fantastic! For dinner a delicious filet mignon with veggies and potatoes. Dessert was a home made apple pie! Great night for all. We will return before Christmas. I've said it before, get to IL LUOGO, you won't be disappointed!

This place is very lively. We went here on Sunday, there was a party going on in the main dining room so that may be why we waited awhile for our food. We were a party of 8 so we ordered 2 hot antipasto platters for the table, the food was good but not enough of each item, it was a little skimpy. For our main entrees, I had the seafood pasta special, it was tagatelle pasta served with 1/2 lobster, scallops, shrimps and mussels, it was delicious and a few of the others ordered the Short Rib special, a steak dinner - cooked just right, meat was tender and juicy, the Orecchiette with sausage and broccoli rabe was very tasty, and one classic Chicken Parm with pasta was scrumptious! The entrée portions were large and we were definitely satisfied. We had coffee all around and one Tiramasu to share since we were also stuffed. We had 2 bottles of wine ($40/each), Single glass of Moscatto, an Old Fashion and a few soft drinks. The total bill including tax and tip was $640. Not a cheap meal by any means, but a delicious one! I wish I had leftovers...

Another wonderful dinner at IL LUOGO restaurant. A last miniute decision to come to eat at IL LUOGO. I had an earlier reservation at a new restaurant which couldn't seat us so we moved on.

You are always greated like family at IL LUOGO. The staff is always professional, accommodating and well informed. The chef specials are plentiful and varied. Food has been always consistent with beautiful presentation and extremely flavorful and creative. Good wine, great food, service and ambiance! IL LUOGO is my place to be!

Went here years ago was good & always see it when driving so decided to go back! Food was really bad! Warm temp, clams sandy, duck just didn’t taste like duck & lamb was an insult to the lamb that gave his life to feed me! Service & hist were great & baker guy was the best, I tipped him the most $! Overall it’s just not classic Italian! They also don’t plate the food like most fine dining restaurants they just put on the table & leave! I expected better but it was just not a good experience! I’m grateful for theie efforts but they need to work on there food quality & the little things that set bar higher!

It took a while to be seated. Because the restaurant is a bit small. And there was a lot of there that night. Other than that everything else was just great!
