L'Artusi, a West Village favorite, was named a 2009 hotspot by Condé Nast Traveler. Offering open-kitchen crudo bar seating, cozy banquettes and a sky-lit private dining room, it has something for everyone. The beverage program features an extensive Italian wine list, with traditionally made wines from all of Italy's 20 regions and an impressive selection of artisanal cocktails. L'Artusi's menu has won many fans with its fresh homemade pastas and international cheese program. The restaurant embodies welcoming hospitality with a neighborhood sensibility.
