Chelsea Ristorante Ratings and Reviews
We were looking for an opening on a busy holiday season Friday evening and CR was able to accommodate our small party of 3. I had eaten at the restaurant several years ago, but honestly had limited recollection of my experience. Well, we had a lovely time with some really nice Italian cuisine with fun and engaging service staff. It was the kind of evening that will have me going back because it was the overall experience rather than just piece that convinced.
Chelsea's Italian gem. Arriving at Chelsea Ristorante is a warm experience. Friendly, professional, welcoming people take care of you fort he instant you enter. Drinks food and wine are always just what the doctor ordered. Everyone excels at hospitality and the Chicken Scarpaiola is excellent!
Consistently excellent! This is the best Italian Restaurant in Chelsea, and it competes with the best in New York. What makes this place so special is the very warm greeting, the excellent professional service and of course the very good Italian food that is served from the large menu. Chelsea Ristorante never disappoints and it is a place that I would recommend very highly.
Have not been to Chelsea Ristorante for years. I found it better than before, excellent in fact. The green fettuccine was delicious as was the fried zucchini. Their cappuccino was the best. Good cocktails. The service was right-on, friendly, efficient and welcoming. This is a well managed restaurant. They know what they are doing.
Wish this place were in San Francisco, where I live! Am thrilled to have found this family-owned
sweet and terrific Italian restaurant in Chelsea. I'll definitely head back here next time I'm in the City. The crab tomato sauced pasta is spectacular, and the pizza is perfect- beautifully thin and so tasty. Thank you, Chelsea Ristorante!!
The service is good. Main dishes are good. Food is a little skimpy, especially the salads and the vegetables served with main dishes. I'd be ashamed to serve that tiny quantity of vegetables.Salads are not great, especially for the cost. Caprese salad is two pieces of mozzarella and two unripe tomatoes for $15. Wine is amazingly overpriced for the inferior quality wine that is served. Suggest beer or a cocktail alternative.
These guys treat us like royalty every time. Donnie, Ajid, Lab and the rest of the crew always make us feel welcome and special. The Spaghetti alla Vongole was delicious and large for an appetizer portion, the Veal Valdostana is my favorite and always exceptional.
Simple yet elegant & absolutely delicious food with lovely & solicitousness staff. Love the outdoor, outdoor/ indoor or indoor options. Our first visit to this sparkling gem of a restaurant which most certainly will not be our last! Thank you for a wonderful dining experience!!
Chelsea Ristorante is the ultimate neighborhood restaurant. It is an Italian joint that serves wonderfully prepared dishes that are served by the friendliest waiters imaginable. There is always a warm greeting from n the local atmosphere with a great bar and many choices on the large menu. Not only would I happily recommend this restaurant, but the fact that my wife and I frequent it often, means we feel this is a very special NYC place to enjoy a good meal that is always worth the moderate price. Talk to Donnie, he will always make you feel right at home ....,
I used to work down the block, which is how I discovered this restaurant. The food is delicious and it has a nice atmosphere. I always bring friends and relatives here from out of town for good Italian food. The service was very good. My only problem with this visit, was that it was very warm out and the air conditioning was not very high. Then they opened the front doors, and it got even warmer.
One of the most disappointing Italian meals I've eaten in NYC. I should have known from how empty the restaurant was on a Sat afternoon. The food was really mediocre. My friends had the pizza and it average. I ordered the pasta of the day and it was just bland even with the chopped bacon in it. I would have gotten more satisfaction eating something from the supermarket aisle. Service was passable. At one point, the waiter interrupted our ordering to chat with a friend. I wouldn't go back again. It's just not worth it.
I have never had a bad meal here and I have never had less than good service here. For me, it is the little details that count - water glass being filled without being asked, wine being poured by the server as needed. This is a restaurant that simply knows how to offer a pleasant dining experience with good food.
