At The Trattoria we share our version of Italian American Cuisine. We strive to source the finest and freshest ingredients available on the American market, and prepare them with Italian sensibility. The food is rustic and soul satisfying. We continue to offer the same relaxed atmosphere, and come as you are, drink what you want hospitality that we bring you with The Trattoria.

"Always a great meal at The Trattoria. I had the beet salad, lasagna, and the black and white creme brûlée. All delicious! We brought our own wine. Love that! Bread is fantastic! Service great too. The staff is very warm and welcoming. I do wish they would change up the menu more frequently. I feel like many of the dishes have been on the menu for YEARS."

Pentimento, inspired by the spirit of mother-nature, reflects the seasonal progression by creating seasonal menus conceived by owner Dennis Young and Chef Massimo Fedozzi. Like the seasons, each menu is merely a layer on the culinary canvas they have been painting on for more than thirty years. <br />Like all Italian fare, the soul of each dish is derived from the region and embodied by the finest imported and local, natural and organic ingredients and animated with passion in the hands that prepare them. Using minimal and high quality ingredients and showcasing their flavors is one of our philosophies at Pentimento. Our wine program is extensive, yet simple. Every palette is different. Our beverage director David Marzano will ensure each sip will be a memorable one. Italian food needs to be enjoyed in an atmosphere that beckons family and friends to savor, talk, drink and celebrate. The direction by the general manager Lisa Cusumano results in a very unique guest experience

Respect. Inspire. Teach. Learn. Create. Achieve Greatness.<br />Tell Me – it’s what “ilili” means. For our guests, Tell Me means listening to and understanding each of their stories and creating new ones with them – ones of celebration and sharing, of long traditions and new beginnings. <br />Every dish at ilili has its own story from the traditional recipes direct from Lebanon, to the modern updates that tell the history of our team, of our cooks and chefs who have left their mark on our kitchen, and our serving staff and managers who have been ambassadors of hospitality. Our menu is never done – we find inspiration all around, in new ingredients, new approaches, and fresh takes on old standards.<br />ilili is a place where creativity abounds from the kitchen to the dining table where each guest becomes an artist, creating his own palette of flavors with our dishes as the canvas and good friends as the audience. <br />

"I love Ilili and have recommended it to friends who love it too. It's hard to find a good restaurant not far from Penn Station, so it's a real gem. The staff was knowledgeable and friendly, the place is hip and attractive, and the food is phenomenal! Love the variety you get when ordering small plates. Each time I visit, I try something new and have loved it all!"
