Becoming my favorite placeI have recommended Crispo to at least a dozen friends. Without fail, I get a call the next day saying how much they loved the food and atmosphere. My only problem is that I tend to order the same thing every time I'm there!5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat NY style italianEnjoyed a hearty and delicious italian meal at Crispo's. the staff were great and the restaurant packed- will definitely be going back when next in the city!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food. Great value.We had heard the food was good but were blown away when we actually ate there. It's just very simple Italian food extremely well done. If the weather is nice, try to get a seat in the back garden.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMSoo Good!Such great Italian! The food was very good. Great specials on the menu in addition to the full menu. Great service! You have to get the chocolate chip cookies for desert. I love it that they have blue cheese stuffed olives!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent PastaWe came across Crispo by accident since we were looking for an Italian restaurant near the Meatpacking District and it way exceeded our expectations. The appetizers of Buffalo Mozzarella and chick pea cakes and the kale salad were awesome. The pasta was excellent and their Creme Brulee/Chocolate Mousse dessert combo is fantastic and perfect to share.
Service was good and friendly. Table bus boys almost too efficient. My appetizer plate was taken when I was still eating my last mouth full. The place was very busy on a Saturday night and has a great vibe to it. We would return if we need Italian again in that part of town.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMspectacular restaurant. servicespectacular restaurant.

You can't go wrong with anything on the menu. Service uniformly excellent. Great place.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMI love this restaurant!!!!!!!I love this restaurant!!!!!!! Great choices on the menu, you can either do small plates or order dinners. My husband had veal parmigiana, which was outstanding and I had chicken milanese and that was delicious also. We did indulge and have dessert. OMG 5 star!
Some of the restaurants we go to you can't hear each other talk. This was very busy and bustling but we still felt intimate at our table.
This could be one of my new favorite places. Prices were good.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food is consistently excellent!The food is consistently excellent!

My family and I came to celebrate my birthday. I could not have asked for a better birthday dinner. The atmosphere, food and service (Susan is the best!) were all fantastic! The atmosphere is unique, the food was absolutely delicious and served hot by the amazing staff. Request a table in the waterfall room for a truly memorable night.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMI have been impressed by CrispoI have been impressed by Crispo from my first visit. The menu is very interesting, having more than your standard red sauce and pasta. My favorite dish, by far, is the carmelized cauliflower, pine nuts. and currants over whole wheat pasta. It's so good that I have to force myself to try other dishes. I have been back a dozen times with various sized groups. The food is consistently excellent, the wine is great and the service is perfect. Wonderful.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWe arrived two hours earlierWe arrived two hours earlier than our reservations and because it was early in the evening we were accommodated immediately - with no pressure to leave. Food was wonderful, rice balls, artichoke salad, crispy duck! Subtle but wonderful combinations of herbs and flavors! Vast menu of so many dishes it's hard to decide what to choose. Service and the ambiance - water falls, fireplace, rustic stone floors made for a very pleasurable dining experience. Recommendations for wine were also very good!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a great evening! LovedWe had a great evening!

Great energy, fantastic food and service. I will be back very soon!!!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMUnique combinationsThis was my second time eating at Crispo with three other people. One was a vegetarian and we had no problems ordering enough delicious food for all of us to eat. Everything was great and the pastas and small plates were unique.3/11/2013 12:00:00 AMMy only 'issue' was that ifMy only 'issue' was that if one's table is in the very back room - if there was a fire, it would be hard to get out. . . . but the food and the vibe is wonderful.2/22/2013 12:00:00 AMHidden gem on W. 14th.Enclosed garden area with a beautiful fireplace in the winter is fantastic. If you can't sit here, wait until you can. food is great, but you need the garden area.1/1/0001 4:00:00 PM
