Nice small quieter place. Italian food is above average with fresh tastes and nice presentation. We’ll be back!

Little did we know that just one week ago on a perfect 70° sunny evening Monday, March 9, that we would be having our last sitting NYC restaurant meal before our "new normal". We sat at an outdoor table, enjoyed the usual warm, friendly welcome and attention of the Il Melograno staff. Wonderful food and wine, as always. We had our friend for her 2nd visit there, both with us. We can't wait to return when we all get on the other side of this and send the entire staff our best wishes. B & P, NYC 3/17/20

Pasta is spectacular and so is the service. I had the Pappardelle with the sausage ragout and it was outstanding! Service is very friendly and makes you feel home.

High ratings on OpenTable for food which the four of us all agreed was mediocre at best. Except for the burrata appetizer.

My husband's steak was really good. My risotta was okay, there was no fish in it as advertised, only mussels and shrimp. The service was very good and efficient. It was a good place to get a quick meal before a show.

We were celebrating birthdays with friends. The owners are so kind and accommodating. The food is pure and fabulous. The atmosphere is cozy and delightful. Our favorite spot if just the two of us or with guests. There is nothing but goodness that comes from this restaurant.

We discovered this gem of a restaurant last year, and fell in love. It's first of all DELICIOUS, and fresh, excellent menu and scrumptious food. There is a nice wine list, and excellent service. We have always had exceptional food here. We love the owner too!!! It's a great place to go and chat, relaxed and its very cozy and quiet....oh, and easy to park in the neighborhood.

We found this little place down from our hotel. It was a quaint little space with very attentive servers, excellent food and ambiance. We asked the server for his first timer recommendation and it was perfect. Great wine as well and very reasonable. Would go back again and highly recommend.

Great small restaurant in Manhattan. It is run and owned by two young Italians who are welcoming and gracious. We were very early for our reservation but they accommodated us as soon as possible. The food was excellent (I had the ravioli) and the dessert was out of this world! I truly recommend this restaurant to true Italian food lovers.

A very New York-y kind of place: small, crowded, loud, authentic, ‘real’. We loved it and will definitely go back. We would have liked more vegetarian options.

Too too tight...too too noisy. Food uneven. Burrata good, arugula overwhelms raw beef, which is essentially tasteless. Bread fair, but dipping oil and balsamic off. All could be forgiven if noise level were. tolerable

Il Melograna is a wonderful find in Hell's Kitchen. The setting is comfortable. There is a full bar and a good wine list. Service is attentive and very good. The food is delicious. Pasta is al dente and full of flavor. It is a wonderful night out.

Nice place. The food was prepared well. The split salad was split in kitchen beforehand. The beets in the salad were likely canned though-ugh. This group had a chicken dish and a pasta. I'd go again. The prices were more than fair and service was prompt but not pushy.

We came into NYC a day early before our cruise to South America in case the weather turned nasty! I found II Melograno online since we were staying in the Hell's Kitchen area! We walked from Kimpton Ink48 and it was quite close by! The ambience was delightful and the food was exceptional! Our waiter was attentive and quite pleasant! I enjoyed the close quarters of the dining area. The feel was one of the old time Italian restaurants where everyone there felt like family! Definately, worth the visit!
