I reserved here in advance and glad I did as it was full. It is definitely a locales place which I love to get to the heart of any place. The food arrived quickly and they were really accommodating as we explained we needed to eat quickly as it was 1pm in our heads (from travelling). The risotto was a... More

If I ever go back to New York, this is a must visit again! My sister, 2 nieces and I went to New York for a girls week. This restaurant was one of the highlights of our trip. I noticed one reviewer said the owner and staff pay more attention to their regulars - we did not find this to... More

Absolutely Fabulous! I don't think I need to go into detail on this. It's Italian, and it's all delicious. Nice atmosphere and a great wine list too. From the app's to dessert - all excellent. We will be back. Be sure to make reservations.

We had a beautiful evening and dinner at Il Cantinori on Saturday night. This restaurant is lovely and very spacious for NYC dining.. We started with the Burrata and the Portabella Mushroom Appetizers which were so tasty. Everyone ordered delicious entrees; Chicken Piccata, Lobster & Pasta, Sausage, and Veal Chops.. We enjoyed the chianti and some wonderful desserts; cookies, tartufo... More

The cuisine is terrific, only overshadowed by the wonderful staff. We have been regulars here for nearly 30 years and Frank and crew treat us like family. They are genuinely kind people and talented professionals. You won't be disappointed!

We read reviews of Il Cantinori and decided to try it during a recent trip to NY. It has a cozy feel and, as another reviewer noted, reminds one of the small trattorias in Italy. We were greeted warmly and seated in the back room where the noise level low enough to encourage conversation. That is a definite plus since... More

This place is darling. Very unpretentious and just feels like you walked in off the via veneto in Rome. The pasta napolitano was just perfect, carpaccio superb. The bartender, Austin, so friendly and attentive. This is staple and was the setting for Carrie Bradshaw's birthday episode!

This is a beautiful restaurant. Whether you are seated in the main dining room or in second back airy dining room with its soaring skylight (or in the few tables outdoors in the front of the restaurant) the ambiance is one of refined elegance and graciousness. And the food and service perfectly match the lovely environment. The menu is concise... More

The staff was so welcoming and fun! Great food and spirits. Loved the special attention to detail on my birthday with yummy champagne, special drinks made by the famous Dante, birthday song sung by the staff and a beautiful atmosphere with filled with roses, seasonal arrangements and just the best place to dine in the city!!!!!!!!!!

Staying in Greenwich Village

Neighborhood Profile
Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to get a feel for this diverse and energetic neighborhood. You’ll find NYU students, street performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess. Stroll the streets to discover a mix of majestic town homes and hidden bars and restaurants that give this neighborhood an old-school residential feel. When the sun goes down, check out one of the famous jazz or comedy clubs that still packs them in every night.
