    And we could talk!

    Don't think this is stuffy pretentious and super-pricey Primavera. Although the room looks the same, the food is Southern Italian home cooking, plenty of wines are affordable, and the welcome is wonderful. But the big plus is that the tables are far enough apart that we could talk without shouting. I'll go back again and again.

    I went to Il Tesoro the other night with my boyfriend and everything we ate was amazing! I usually don't write reviews but we loved the food and atmosphere so much I had to mention it. Great place for a date or dinner with another couple.

    Fair prices for fantastic perfect food

    Italian dinner and brunch on the weekend, we go to this special restaurant 2x a week and order take-out from them at least 1x a week, so happy to have quality and artistic non-boring food, the service has always been top list and friendly. They are new, but feel like old friends, always a pleasure with fair and reasonably priced food that keeps us coming back to try their whole menu. They just opened weekend brunch, and lovin it!

    Poor service

    I hated it here. I thought I would try out the new restaurant where my beloved Primavera once was. It all began w/ the waiters and went downhill from there. I had asked for my food to be warmed up, and they kept making excuses until finally i had to eat it cold. My husband was livid! To my taste, food wasn't up to par. I'm not sure what everyone is talking about how the food is great. Restaurant like this doesn't belong here on the UES-should be on west side or midtown where it would probably do well w/ tourist activity. Real NY's will not pay these prices. I don't understand

    Better than Great!

    We decided on Il Tesoro for a date night and were beyond impressed. The place was not packed, which made us a little weary, then the food came and we were blown away. The prices were totally reasonable and the food and service were spectacular. They have half orders of pasta so you can try several. We're definitely going back - it's a must try.

    A wonderful addition to the UES!

    We enjoyed our first delicious meal at Il Tesoro in Martha's Vineyard, where their restaurant can be found in The Charlotte Inn. We were so pleased to learn that they were coming to our neighborhood. Having grown up with an Italian mother who is an amazing cook (she still jars her own tomatoes), I am rather discerning when it comes to Italian food. We have visited Il Tesoro 3-4 times since their arrival and have been impressed with the consistent excellent quality of the food. I am also gluten intolerant, and they always graciously address my dietary needs. The service is kind, understated and attentive. I recommend Il Tesoro highly!!

    My kind of place

    Great beyond expectations. We don't usually look at prices when we go out, but when we got the bill we were happily surprised as it was such a great value for the several courses we had including drinks - veal chop and the venison steak, our appetizers of the best scallops grilled and perfectly cooked. The creamy dessert of white chocolate was fabulous. Cocktails were excellent, blood orange martini.
