Trattoria dell’Arte
At this colorful Italian eatery directly across the street from Carnegie Hall, the walls have ears—or rather, a giant sculpture of an ear, along with a huge eye and a single enormous tit. The exuberant décor is matched by a menu that runs from deeply rich fare, such as linguini carbonara with lobster, to austere pizzas with crisp, papyrus-like crusts. The Roman Ghetto-style baby artichokes are a perfect appetizer, but picky eaters are also free to assemble their own starters at the well-stocked antipasto bar.

I don't usually dine in Midtown by choice, so I was pretty bummed when I was forced to find a restaurant for a client dinner right by Carnegie Hall. My initial thoughts where - Tourist Central: Can i find something delicious?
Then i found this place on yelp. WOW - you must get yourself here ASAP.

First of all, the place itself is super cool, decorated to look like an Italian Artist's studio. The service itself was on point, attentive and helpful. Offered great recommendations when we were having some trouble ordering as everything looked SO GOOD. Some of the food highlights:

- Pizza - the crust is paper thin, and it is oh so delicious. The pepperoni and sausage and pepper ones were to die for.

- Lobster carbonara - SO AMAZING

- Pepperoni chicken parm. Ok, I DON'T EVEN LIKE CHICKEN PARM.But get this. It's unreal.

Amazing wines and desserts. All around a big win, and totally worth the expensiveness. Can't wait to come back!
