This is one of the best Italian restaurant in NYC. Just as former Park slope resident I can tell you that there was a line right outside its door every day of the week at 5:30pm which is when they open for dinner. That's something to think about...And by the way the dessert is the best part of the meal.

hey, i normally i dont post on here but i saw someone complaining and saying the food didnt taste at all italian and yadda yadda. this place is excellent. its expensive but its really good and it is quality REAL italian food. there isnt any chicken parm or the staples of other tasty homestyle italian places, this is all classy delicate and highyl thought out italian quisine. very very tasty, just bring a fat wallet

As a new brooklynite from Manhattan I'm thrilled to have found a "go to" Italian restaurant that's more delicious than any in the city. Each time I've been, I've had a wonderful time - the service is great, the atmosphere is laid back, cozy, but classy. Try the corn ravioli - I'm salivating just thinking about it.

Went there last night after reading the great reviews. When we arrived, there was a 30 minute wait so we had to go aroudn the corner to the bar. The table are very close, very difficult to be intimate. I have been to some of the best restaurants in NY - which include Blue Ribbon, Tao, Gotham Grill, River Cafe and can truly say the food is less then mediocre. The food is definitely unique but does not taste Italian at all. I was very unsatisfied.

i'll say this about al di la: i've had a good time with three of the last four dates i've taken to this restaurant. (the fourth was my roommate.) order the malfatti, the mussels, a bottle of wine, anything else on the menu, and you are golden. just be selective who you take - it'll be at least $80 per person, so she should be worth it. also, you'll get major minus points if you go there on tuesdays - it's closed. no reservations, but the wine bar around the corner is a great place to wait and get her a little tipsy before the meal.

really loved the salad and syrah and ravioli. went on a wed at around 7:15 and got the last table available for two. was really a nice meal. don't know why some don't like it. the service was pretty good. i wouldn't say outstanding. but we never needed anything and the food came in a timely manner. i was glad that the waiter gave us the specials along with the prices. who likes asking how much something is and then not ordering it because you don't want any surprises when the bill comes? just give the prices up front. which our waiter did. we didn't have dessert here but walked down to the chocolate room instead. a great night.

I went here with my beautiful girlfriend and had an hour wait so we went to one of the local bars and had a couple of drinks during the wait. We could have just gone to the swanky wine bar attached to the restaurant but thought "Hey, lets go to a bar." So we did. Then we got a call from the owner an hour later on the DOT saying your table is ready in a thick northern italian accent. At this time we both proceded to promenade down 5th ave to the restaurant where we wined and dined the night away. Great food, try the specials, they were great!!!!!!!! Just don't fill up on appetizers!!!!!
