    My wife and I had dinner at one of the restaurant's sidewalk two-tops. The service was quick, friendly, and efficient. My pre-dinner cocktail was excellent. My wife had the black risotto with seafood, and I had the risotto al funghi. Both were superb.

    Really underwhelmed by this experience. The staff was uninterested in taking our order, we had to call them over to even order wine/cocktails. The only exception was the younger server who kept our water glasses full the entire time. The pasta was undercooked and lacked flavor. Overall it was too expensive to be so bad. Wouldn’t go back here and wouldn’t recommend

    Chelsea Ristorante has been our family’s “neighborhood Italian” since 1994, even after we moved to Inwood in 2009. It was the place to take visitors and to celebrate family milestones, including our granddaughter’s 21st birthday. We love to come back for the always good food and excellent service. Before the staff turnover, we were greeted as old friends. They even remembered our favorite wine! The new staff is attentive and friendly. And the food remains true Italian comfort food at its best.

    We are so glad this restaurant made it through the pandemic shutdown. It is one of our favorite spots in NYC. We were celebrating a birthday and felt like the staff was part of the family. Beautiful decorations and lovely atmosphere. Happy that all were checked for covid vaccine.

    A neighborhood gem. Where the food is consistently good no matter how many years we have been going there. Unfortunately, this time we had a server who seemed to forget we were one of his tables or to ensure we even received the food we had asked for. Hopefully, the next time we will be the recipients again of the service Chelsea Ristorante is known for.

    A nice, large restaurant in a good location where the tables are not shoulder to shoulder. Service was prompt, although the waiter brought the wrong beer and did not offer to bring the correct one until we requested it. The food was very good and plentiful and the dessert menu, which we declined, had an array of luscious looking goodies.

    First time there and was pleasantly surprised and how warm and welcoming the room is. And they play gentle ambient music that lets guests actually hear each other talk! I had a very good arugula and fennel salad (though I would have liked a bit more fennel) and a classic gnocchi with pesto. We were there for brunch so half of my party of 8 got egg dishes, but I am told the omelettes and the fritatta were very good. And everyone in my party really enjoyed the place. We'll be back.

    Service was very nice. Attentive but not obtrusive. I ordered the fish special which was sole piccata and it was delicious. Buttery and flaky, not overdone which my biggest complaint when I eat fish out. My husband had veal Marsala and he almost licked the plate clean. Dessert was pistachio cake which was light and fluffy and not too sweet. They got us out in time for theater at the Joyce. Nice atmosphere and we could have a conversation without shouting.

    The food was amazing and staff were attention. I had a hankering for Italian and it was before a show, they got me in and out. I really enjoyed the mussels, veal meatballs (which you can order a side pasta). I think it was overall a good experience.
