“"BIG" Restaurant Concept”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

If you're looking for a "Big" restaurant in NYK, then go to Del Posto. The dining room is large and has two levels; nicely decorated and tables are well spaced.

The service is a bit much for my taste; our waiter was super formal and it just felt like they were trying to be something more than they actually were. That said, the service was excellent, had nothing to improve there other than the overall "feel" of their service. Too stuffy.

The food for the first two courses was excellent. However, they should have served one less pasta dish and the main course was way too large. Not sure who they are trying to impress with all this food, but it really was way overboard. Should have been more restrained for this level of a restaurant, imo.

If you want a big ny restuarant experience, this may be the place. But for me, this restaurant proved the point that I love going to places like Gramercy Tavern where the food is better, the service about the same but the restaurant feels smaller and more approachable...less of a concept restaurant.

“Excellent ”
Reviewed October 26, 2013 via mobile

My wife and I have been to some of the finest restaurants in the world,
We tried to reserve Babbo 30 days early without any luck as it was my wife's 50th. We booked Del Posto and we're not disappointed. From start to finish service and food were impeccable. That three pasta's we had were the highlight. The Gnudi and 100 layer lasagna were unbelievable. I always look at the worst reviews to get a sense of a place contrasting the best reviews. The restaurants high praise is well deserved. Hard to make a mistake by going here is you like fine Italian food.

“great atmosphere and food, but pass on the truffles”
Reviewed October 25, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

del posto is a great location and beautiful interior. The food is good and well-presented, and the service is also good. The one disappointment was the special 'truffle risotto'. Yes, the risotto was delicious, but I couldn't taste any particular truffle flavor from the very-expensive-shaved-truffle on top. There was one issue with the service -- a long delay between two courses almost made us late for the theater. Also, this was almost a vegetable-free meal. Since it is a Prix-fixe menu, vegetables should definitely be included.
