Go to Il Giglio at your own risk. You better order from the menu, $17 for a martini. $40 for ravioli, both off the menu. Food OK, waiters push you to order too much and unlisted expensive dishes. Y

Just moved to the area and went based on friend recommendation. The food was amazing and the service was nearly the best I have ever received. This comes at a substantial price, but it is earned. I will be back often.

Grew up on Italian food. This place reminds me of my grandmas cooing. As far as the prices be careful. Stay away of things not even on the menu (antipasto) and the entire rack of lamb. Watch what wine you order if you are going to tie one on. If you are looking for an Italian meal that you might get in Italy look no further.

We wanted to take our friends out for dinner before they moved back to England and they suggested this place. The first impression was made within about 3 minutes of entering the establishment. There were about 4 tables being utilized out of the 25 to 30 in total. When I asked prior to being seated if the 4 of us could sit at the table in the far left corner, the waiter said that the table was only for a party of 7, basically “no you can’t sit there” (no one sat there for the entire 2 hours we were there). I didn’t want to make a big deal about it so I just accepted his answer and sat down where he escorted us to. After that the food and service were average for the entire dinner. I would say, nor excellent nor bad, but just average. THEN, it happened……we got the bill. It was shocking! We ordered 2 appetizers, 2 bottles of $60 wine, 2 cocktails, 1 cappuccino, a side of broccoli rabe and asparagus (of which there were about 5 of on the dish) and 4 orders of rack of lamb and the total was $497, not including the tip (take notice, we didn’t even have dessert). Now, don’t get me wrong, I have been to expensive restaurants in the past and haven’t minded when the bill came out to even about $200 a person, but at least I felt like I got something extraordinary. This place was just OK and that’s it, definitely not worth the price. There are much better places out there for the price and who would accommodate your seating preference if there was practically no one in the restaurant.

This is our favorite italian in Manhattan. Family owned (an offshoot of Il Mulino) without the hype. Great pasta. Wonderful sole. And they'll make any dish to order.
