“Best meal over a 2-week stay in NYC”
Reviewed August 14, 2014

Everything is amazing about this restaurant: the food, wine, service, ambience. In my 2-week stay in NYC, I visited many fine dining establishments and this was the best.

Normally, Italian cuisine is more casual, even in Italy but Del Posto successfully presented it in a very refined manner paired with a carefully chosen by-the-glass wine list.

Would revisit for sure next time I am in town.

“Excellent meal!”
Reviewed August 13, 2014

We went here for my sister's 50th birthday so you know the meal had better be good! We did the tasting menu where you got an appetizer, 2 pastas shared by the table, a main entree and dessert. First off, the service was impeccable- very attentive and knowledgeable staff. Each lady at the table even got a small stool for their handbag-not imperative but a nice touch. The nice thing about the tasting menu was that each person got to choose their own appetizer, main and dessert. The only thing we had to decide on was which pastas to get for the table. My octopus appetizer was delicious- not tough at all. For the main I got the lamb chops- medium was nicely done- read pink as it should be! They were very tender and delicious as well. For the pastas, we got the pumpkin cappellaci (ravioli) and the lasagna. Not very exciting choices I admit but they amazing. As you can tell by now, everything we had was excellent! We somehow had room left for dessert, which again were delicious especially the butterscotch semifreddo. Usually portions for a tasting menu are quite small but here I thought the portions were quite generous. Overall the dinner was a success. In fact this dinner equals the dinner I had at Colicchio and Sons which happens to be down the block. Either place would be great for a special occasion.

“A must see for Italian Cuisine”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

Since I was dining solo, I grabbed dinner at the bar. The overall decor was warm and inviting with a timeless classic New York feel to it. The bar and cocktail list wasn't trying too hard and provided all the classics. I ordered the Captain's tasting menu and each course provided generous portions that still left you wanting more. I was completely satisfied after all the courses. Bartenders were well trained and took great care of all the guests at the bar. I will definitely be back. The private dining room downstairs looked awesome as it's situated in the wine cellar. The lounge area by the bar had a really cool decor of small tables and comfortable seating. The dining room was arranged nicely with white linen table cloth service. Great location and easy to find.
