Il Cantinori is the New York Italian eatery you've always imagined, with locals sitting at the front tables spilling out onto the sidewalk, flower arrangements the size of furniture, New York-Italian waiters accommodating your every need, and fresh, tasty Italian food. After you're nearly bursting from enjoying the freshest buffalo mozzarella, juicy tomatoes handmade pasta or fresh fish, you'll still... More

Had a wonderful lunch during NYC Summer Restaurant week that exceeded all expectations for fine food, great service an super value. Can you imagine starting with a generous plate of Norwegian smoked salmon, followed by a delicious perfectly prepared Filet of Sole with capers and white wine sauce and topped with a sinful sweet to end the meal for $25....

If you had to pick one restaurant to dine at every time your in NYC this would be it. No pretense, just great food. Owner caters to the East Village neighborhood he's been in for 30 years, and it gets better with age. We shared the seafood pasta in a blush sauce and the freshness of the ingredients was exquisite.... More

This restaurant came highly recommended. We asked for a specific waiter who was not working the night we visited. So instead the manager gave us their newest waiter. Does that make sense? Orders were consistently wrong and delivered to the wrong person. Bill,was wrong and the. They lost their copy and chased me down as I was grabbing a cab... More

My son moved in across the street from Il Cantinori. I was impressed with the open front that the place has. Stop in for dinner. It was excellent. The atmosphere is very cozy and relaxed. The waitstaff very professional with an in debt knowledge of the menu. The food and wine absolutely outstanding. Try the homemade pasta.

We had an amazing dinner experience. Right around the corner from NYU on a lovely street with great ambiance. We ordered three different entrees, all were exquisite. The pastas are homemade!! Service was outstanding. We will return every time we visit out child.

This place is literally out of a sex & the city episode (Carrie's Bday). The atmosphere is classic NYC on TV - front opens to the street. Huge bouquets (people size) of flowers flow throughout the restaurant creating the most amazing floral scents. Food is to die for. I had the burrata appetizer. It's like fresh mozzarella but with a... More

Il Cantinori leaves a long lasting impression year after year. The classic italian food there is exceptional. Good wine list. Great service. Not cheap, but for a good reason - everything they make tastes great. Definitely try the fish; salmon, grouper, branzino. Il Cantonori is upscale, but laid back. Make sure to reserve a table in advance. Perfect place for... More

We received a fabulous welcome upon entering. We had a round of drinks at the bar while waiting for the others in our party. The dining area was comfortable and pleasant. Then we waited and waited. It took some time to order what turned out to be very good food. It was almost like we were forgotten there in the... More

My friend Alex booked us a private room for a celebration. Wow, what a meal. and what an experience. our waiters were awesome -- two guys from the Dominican. And the food was outstanding. We really felt like we got a special experience from the crowd at this local find.
