The restaurant does have very nice atmosphere which makes for a very enjoyable dining experience.

I need gluten free and ordered the Insalata Pisticci (spinach salad) which was a good salad. We also ordered the olive and cheese platter, but wouldn't repeat as we expected some varitey on the cheese, but were only served parmesan. For dinner I had the Penne Pisticci (gluten free) and they use a nice quinoa pasta not corn which was very good. My husband had the Fettuccine Mushroom pasta (not gluten free) and it had ample mushrooms. Though we enjoyed both dishes we found them both to be a bit bland, but we only needed to add a bit of salt and they were fine.

The service was great even thought it was a very busy night and the food served nice and hot. We would definitely recommend and return.

Had many different appetizers - all were good except the olive and cheese. Had pasta with meatballs, fish, steak for entrees - delicious. Desserts were great except for the berries with whipped cream. It was a huge mound of whipped cream with a few berries. Waitstaff were great. Would def recommend going.

We had lunch at Pisticci Restaurant today and every dish was excellent, from the bread to the pasta, salad, and mussels. The mussels were sooooooo good that we even ordered a second serving. Each sauce was perfect, the service was attentive, and the setting was lovely. We will definitely return.

Came across this wonderful place whilst staying 2 blocks away in morning side
Fabulously cooked food welcoming service. Ordered takeout after a trip to the movies followed by a 3 course meal the day after complete with cocktails! We waited fir a table but were happy to soak up the warm neighbourhood atmosphere and hear the Jazz beautifully performed by the lady owner - a fab evening

We were in NY for a short trip and went there with our daughter and son-in-law. It is a fairly large place and quite popular. They bring bread to start but we also ordered the Roasted Garlic Bread which is very good. I had a lamb/pasta dish which was good but probably not my favorite. I had a bite of my daughters ravioli which was very good. The other pasta dishes looked good and were well received. Would definitely go back.
