    Dinner is normally five-courses or more on the Captain's Menu, but those who ask politely and discretely should be able to order a few a la carte pastas around this time instead of going prix fixe. Read more

    The ultimate place to celebrate a special occasion. Do the 5 course prix fixe and order: Truffled Beef Crudo, Pork & Veal Agnolotti, Lasanga, the Duck or Lamb, and the Tortino to finish off.

    Like the rest of the Del Posto menu, Mark Ladner's show-stopping baked lasagna combines the best of the Italian and Italian-American culinary traditions. Read more

    A perfect Neapolitan seafood salad, an unfried and unmemorable artichoke appetizer, a stunning dish of hand-rolled pici pasta with black truffles, and lamb done three ways (chop, roulade, meatballs). Read more

    The minestrone at Del Posto is poured over basil tortellini for a great tasting vegetarian meal. Or try the Luna piena, a giant raviolo, filled with Castelmagno cheese and shaved black truffles. Read more

    There are 130 layers in the 100 layer lasagna! Start with bolognese, besciamella and marinara, then add sheets of super thin pasta and repeat and repeat and repeat. Assembly takes 1.5 hours! Read more

    Orecchiette: It’s hard to go wrong with the handmade pasta at this legendary NYC joint, but we’re partial to the orecchiette with lamb neck sausage, broccoli rabe, ricotta salata and crispy porcini. Read more

    The service is second to none, especially at Richard's tables. Seafood lovers, go with the octopus, then dungess crab, poached lobster, and grilled semolina cake. Or anything - it's all amaze

    This place is gorgeous. It's like stepping back in time, to a classic Hollywood 1940's movie set of a Grand Hotel. The food n service is uncredible. The Slow cooked veal n the pasta was an experience!

    Treat yourself to the five course meal to taste as much authentic food as you can. We loved our Asian Spiced Duck cooked perfectly medium rare & complimented by a unique mix of hazelnuts and cherries.

    Upscale dining at it's finest! The service is impeccable and you will leave stuffed if you try the 5 course tasting menu. The lobster Caesar salad, spaghetti with crab and burnt beef were amazing.

    outstanding in every way! I had the minestrone (fresh, crisp (unbelievable!), poached lobster (best I ever had; to use an over-used phrase, but succulent(, & the celery sorbet is OUT OF THS WORLD!

    Batali-Bastianchi's Michelin-starred Italian restaurant continues to offer one of the best lunches in the city, where you'll find standouts such as the Heritage Pork Trio and Vitello Tonnato.

    Incredible food, incredible incredible wines. The 8 course meal ended up actually being 11, and while they were gems mixed in, it was an all day affair! Price tag gave us serious sticker shock too.

    got the 8 course tasting menu with wine pairing and loved it. every dish was good, and most of the wines were good. believe it or not, the bread and olive oil was spectacular and very memorable

    Despite the grand dining room, the experience manages to be surprisingly intimate in the best way possible. Leave the decision making up to the impeccable staff and you won't be disappointed.

    The most showstopping dishes, intended for sharing, include hunks of lamb and veal and pitch-perfect risotto for two. The all-Italian wine list is suitably encyclopedic and exorbitantly priced-TimeOut

    Del Posto has been a go-to special occassion restaurtant for my wife and I. The food, service and atmosphere has never been anything less than impeccable.Worth every penny ... & it costs many pennies.

    I still can't believe how delicious this food (and wine) was. It's $$$$ by any standard, but absolutely incredible. Luna piena pasta, truffled carne cruda antipasto and olive oil gelato are standouts.

    Fancy and intimate setting; ideal for a nice meal with the parents. The food is very pricey, but it was still an enjoyable meal. My favorite dishes were the scampi linguini and lamb chops.

    Chef Mark Ladner is quietly one of the best Italian chefs in the city, but Del Posto, a soaring, ultra-lavish spot in New York’s trendy Meatpacking District couldn’t seem less subtle.
    CITY GRITAugust 5, 2014
    One step into this space and you immediately understand why it has a Michelin star and a four-stars from the NYT. And that’s even before you taste Mark Ladner’s amazing food!

    The formal, fine dining jewel in Mario Batali's restaurant empire; consider their weekday prix-fixe lunch for the same exquisite food at a much lower price.
    CITY GRITAugust 5, 2014
    The three-course prix fixe lunch for $39 is one of the best deals in town! And because we’re little piggies we always go for the additional pasta course!

    Lunch is just as filling & decadent as dinner but at less than half the cost! Lunch is only available Mon to Fri and takes about 3 hours to get through all the courses. Perfect way to spend a day off!

    You can't do better than simple, fragile pasta e fagioli soup with crunchy fried ditalini pasta and a soft tripe-and-andouille meatball. Or try the 100 Layer Lasagna!
  • Nick G.
    Those homemade cheese balls and house made mini baguettes are soo good. Those two are the reason for me to go there, on and on. Food is of course very good too

    The garganelli verdi al ragu bolognese is divine and light, followed by the sliced duck breast (served raw). To finish, enjoy the mysteriously familiar taste from the extra virgin olive oil gelato.
