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.

Enjoyed an excellent dinner before a Christmas concert at Carnegie Hall. The staff worked like a well oiled machine, managing seating and food service of a fully packed house. Our server, Michelle, was friendly, pleasant, informed and efficient—a real pro. Our meal was excellent. Each of us fully enjoyed our selections, which included tuna carpaccio (outstanding) fried artichoke and avocado and salmon toast apps, with entrees of salmon, tuna and diver scallops that were prepared and presented with culinary skill. We had modest expectations, as the location alone could fill the tables before Carnegie shows. We were thoroughly delighted to discover that this is also one of the best pre theatre meals in Manhattan. We’ll be back.

Only issue was the lack of any real Gluten free entrees. Also at least 2 of our first choices were already sold out at only 7:30 pm.

Good pre-theater spot for Carnegie Hall _ which is right across the street - or city Center which is a block and a half away.

but I would tell anyone that I sent there to be ready to over pay for wine........ This was a great place but it would get 5 stars from mwe with one reasonable priced red wine. Drink water next time.

This lunch was exceptionally exceptional: Guy, the Maître d’, made a huge fuss over the 9 year old twins, bringing them many morsels to try ( which they did, and would never have tried at home!) Guy returned many times always encouraging their good behavior and an adventurous pallet- making what is always a pleasant meal at Trattoria Dell’Arte, a super huge successful one !
This staff person is way beyond excellent

Cibo ottimo e buon servizio, prezzo giusto abbiamo trovato una festa aziendale che ha creato scompiglio nella sala e non siamo riusciti ad avere privacy, è comunque un bel ristorante, da tornare

While the meal would have been notable, not a single dish was served warm. Instead of bringing freshly cooked fried asparagus milano and other appetizers, the waiter simply had the kitchen warm them. I don't take fried food home since it doesn't heat correctly for the next day. I feel like this is what the restaurant did. Further, the lasagne was not warm. Cold lasagne is not tasty and with all the Italian restaurants in NYC, I wont go back.

We had a large party visiting NYC for the weekend and this was our last night out. It was just perfect. The food was delectable. Marco our waiter was fantastic. The setting was festive and warm. Everyone loved it and can’t wait to come back. The best pizza, chicken Parmesan and artichoke appetizer to die for. What a wonderful experience. Love love this gem.

When we arrived shortly before our reservation time the line to check in was literally out the door with approx. 25 people waiting to check in. They only had one guy working the desk and it took almost 20 minutes to get checked in. They then wanted to seat us in the busy bar area where everyone was waiting in line to check in but we refused. All in all a zoo like atmosphere. Once we got a table in the back of the restaurant everything improved drastically. Server was extremely busy but did a good job and the food was very good.

Location has a wonderful vibe and excellent service. Food was disappointing and overpriced. The fried artichokes on the Cacio e Pepe were inedible. Cappuccino was excellent. Will give the restaurant another try.

We were quickly checked-in with our reservation. We mentioned we had a show to go to in 1 hour at Carnegie, and they did miracles getting our order on time, so we don't miss the show. Food was delicious, including the lasagna, thin-crust pizza, and Branzino. I will come back with more time another day!

Delicious food in a very friendly restaurant. The wait staff was quick to fulfill every request. The veal in the veal piccata was so very tender. The minestrone was delicious on a cold evening—Full of spinach and other vegetables

The questionnaire on open table is a failure when asks about noise level. Most restaurants are too noisy which is true of Trattoria dell’Arte. Other then that. this is one of the better restaurants I have eaten at. It is far above its sister? restaurant Fiorella’s in service especially and in food.
The. table bread was superior, Fiorella’s bread is so oily, greasy you did to wash your hands after touching it. They attempt to add extras no better than the house alternatives. The anti pasta bar is minimum. Fiorella’s waiters are, terse, unpleasant, as when I tried to order take out food when they busy (I didn’t need a table). We no longer dine there. The food at Trattoria dell’Arte was surprisingly near excellent. We had a large selection of anti-pasta items. The 4 of us had 3 different fish dishes. They willingly substituted sides from other main courses when we requested it. They had gluten free options even in dessert for one member of our party. I ordered my favorite Meringue cake. Why isn’t it on the menu? They bought a pot of coffee. It was an enjoyable evening.

We went in for an after theater meal. Had reservations and they seated us right away. The food was ok but really not anything worth what they were priced at. Heart of palm salad was good, the fried artichokes were almost painful to eat. They really should have been cleaned better before frying them. The pizza is definitely not the best despite claims to the contrary on the menu. Service was attentive but we tried to order three different bottles of wine and they were not the year that was advertised in the menu. Bit surprising that they would not update their wine menu and prices accordingly. It is a fun, lively environment but otherwise meh.

The restaurant was extremely crowded and exceptionally noisy. It was virtually impossible to engage in conversation with the noise level beyond imaginable. In addition, our dishes were served within minutes of ordering them as the waiters were intent on getting people fed and out as quickly as possible. Everything was rush-rush and intolerably noisy.
