What's good to get here? It's not like The Ivy for Italilan food? Is it?

    Ate at Il Sole for Restaurant Week.... ordered the $44 pre-fix meal. Then came the "Tonight we also have a special Appetizer". Ever ordered an appetizer that was was $88 without having any idea of the cost? Ever thought a wait staff wouldn't mention this fact to you when you were adding this on to your $44/PP pre-fix meal? Ever thought this would happen after you explain you have never dined there before? Appalled, will never ever go back. Il Sole... just a tip... maybe print out the specials with prices if your wait staff is too uncomfortable to say them before customers order. I don't know why this is so hard, it's done all over town. Never again. Very very disappointed.

      Try going in white truffle season... apparently white truffles are good with everything.
      Yes, Ivy for Italian is pretty accurate. The food is fine to good, the atmosphere is nice, the wait staff seems to consistently do as kmhiegel described.

        what was the 38 dollar appetizer that night?

        i guess that's how they get you on the deceptively priced 44 dollar prixe fixe, they try to get you on the rest of the menu somehow. i'm presming it wasn't a white truffle appetizer or else that would have most likely costed upwards of 125 bucks.

        but how was the food even if you guys never go there again?
