Fodor's Expert Review Del Posto

$$$$ New York City Italian

Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.

The dining room at Del Posto—with its sweeping staircase, formal decor, and live music from a baby grand—has the feel of an opulent hotel lobby. This is one of the most consistently dazzling special-occasion spots in the city, and the Italian food is stellar. There are a variety of set menus to choose from, plus à la carte options for parties of four and under. Pitch-perfect risotto is made fresh to order for two people or more, meat dishes like roasted veal chops are standouts, and pastas are ethereal—all with old-world tableside service. For a smaller taste of the experience, come for a cocktail and sample the bargain bar menu.
