I have already done a review on Il Tesoro  http://wp.me/p3wWp1-5s This restaurant is our favorite date night spot and the best Italian in the city. We recently returned there with a groupon that we found. It included 2 appetizers, 2 pastas and 2 entrees. This is a great deal for such an amazing restaurant.

Dinner at Il Tesoro NYCAs per usual the service was outstanding. The service is one of the things I love about this place. We have had a hard time finding great service in the city. For appetizers we both ordered the calamari. The calamari was battered perfectly and I love the marinara sauce.

Il Tesoro NYCAfter the Calamari, we moved on to the pasta course. Jon ordered the bucatini alla amatriciana, it was yummy and had a bit of a spicy kick to it.

Il tesoro NYCI chose the gnocchi sorrentina. The gnocchi had a nice tomato sauce and was topped with a little mozzarella. I would order this again. That says a lot for me since I try not to order the same things twice!

Il Tesoro NYCWe had a lot of food! After the pasta was our meat course. Jon being predictable, ordered the short ribs gnocchi which is the dish he gets every time. I have to agree with him, this is the best short ribs I have had anywhere (Other than the ones that Jon makes)!

Il Tesoro NYCFor the meat course, I decided to have Pollo Milanese, this chicken dish was delicious. I will admit this is the first time I have gone to an Italian restaurant and ordered chicken. I am so glad I did, the sauce was absolutely incredible!

Il Tesoro NYCWe were way to full for dessert this time. If I have not convinced you to check it out Il Tesoro, I am not taking good enough photos! I am going to be going back again and again!
