Since we enter Sistina we were greeted with a wonderful smile. We were seated right away and from there everything was just fabulous! The food is superb my vealchop was cook to perfection, medium rare and juicy. My companion order a branzino covered with sea salt, so moist fragant and deliciously fresh. Also, our zucchini flower stuffed with riccota cheese and tomato sauce were so mmmmmmmm. We are going back for more and more. Nestor, thanks for picking our delicious bottle of brunnelo! We did pay few extra bucks, however the great service and top noch food was well worth it! Sistina is a real chapel for someone who loves superb food and professional/gracious service!

Outstanding. 5 Stars
This is my 2nd dozen or so visit to this wonderful Gem and its my new favorite. First of all this Resturant is one of the best Restuarant's I have eaten at in a long time. The food is delicious. The Services is 5 stars and the Ambiance is like walking into a museum filled with fine art work. It's like going out for an experience that will be unforgettable and it was. The flowers are marvelous as is the risotto with truffle shavings. Wine list is outstanding. What else does one need. Try it you will love it.

Food & Wine Lover
We had olives with a slice of bread-- an antipasto salad of baby greens, fresh artichokes, fava beans and chesse- an appetizer portion of pasta--black tagliolini with shellfish.-fabulous flovor- For the main -My wife--getting ful now--had an an appitizer portion of tuna tatare and I had roasted rabbit over a creamy polenta. We shared a bottle of Italian wine. We finished with a some complimentary cookies.--You want good food--real Italian food--this is it! Also--
we sat next a famous--retired N.Y. Mets baseball player.
The bill adds up in all N.Y.C restaurants, but this was a very fair price for the quality & freshness of this well prepared food. You could see the owner watching over everyhting all evening. Do not miss this one

A Special Place
While the prices are steep and not a place I can afford everyday, it is certainly a repeat. Everytime I have gone there, I have not been disappointed!.....Wonderful spot for a special dinner!

great every time
We live in the neighborhood and go to Sistina regularly. Took some friends this time and they loved it. I had the pork chop special which was very flavorable. The tomato and burrata appetizer special was also great with the farm to table taste on the tomatoes. My wife raved about the asparagus soup.
It's not cheap, but you will always get a great meal at Sistina.

Excellent food tradition persists
Four of us were seated on a recent satufday evening. We started with one of our all time favorites, the risotto with shaved white truffles. The owner comes over with the truffles lying in arborio rice in a jar and gave each of us a whiff.....oh, what a pungent aroma! He then shaves the fungi all over your risotto right there on your plate. We consummed each forkful in quiet rapture stopping only briefly for a sip of a terrific Brunello. For the entre, my wife had the Dover sole and the other woman, scallops. I had the house made pork sausage on top of a creamy polenta. The other gentleman had rabbit. We enjoyed our entire experience. The entire meal including a $200 bottle of wine, tip, tax and truffles, was $900, about $225/person.

Rome on the upper east side
We needed a place for a small group (10) to meet and eat that wasn't too far from the Met Museum. I took a chance and booked here based on some strong on-line reviews. I was extremely impressed with the service and the food. I only sampled my orders and my wife's so I'll recommend the strongest: the asparagus/egg salad, the mushroom risotto (don't miss this, but share it) and the branzino in salt. Everyone was thrilled with the food and the service was friendly but not intrusive. The food prices are reasonable but be aware that the wine list has mainly very expensive wines. There are some more reasonable options but you have to look carefully. We'll be back.
