One of our All-Time Favorites for Italian in the City

L'artusi italian restaurant greenwich village

About L'Artusi

 & why it made the Carpe City list

  • FOOD – Modern Italian deliciousness.  One of the best Italian restaurants in the city.
  • ATMOSPHERE – Warm and friendly, L’Artusi is consistantly full.  You can find bar seating, regular tables and tables that are good for group dinners.  They have a 2nd floor mezzanine with regular seating and their private party room.  Our experience with the service has always been top-notch.
  • WHO/WHAT IT IS GOOD FOR – Date nights, group dinners, birthdays and impressing out-of-town friends who love Italian food.
  • BEVERAGE SITUATION – They have a full bar and an extensive wine list that consists of mostly Italian wines.
    • For my favorite pasta, I go back and forth between the Bucatini and the Spaghetti.  They are both simple but sublime.  I always shoot for getting both at the table for sharing.
    • Roasted Mushrooms – If you are a mushroom fan, these are not to be missed.
    • Garganelli – Veggie friendly but you wouldn’t know it.
    • Olive Oil Cake
    • If you are looking for a private party room for a birthday or special occasion, L’Artusi has a fabulous private dining room in their walk-in wine cellar.
    • Reservations are tough.  Book on Resy two weeks out at 9am.  You can also try showing up when they open and grabbing a seat at the bar or sometimes an early table.  Lunch and brunch are a bit easier.
