Spinach and ricotta cheese in a light pink sauce.
With fresh mixed vegetables, no butter, only extra virgin olive oil.
Classic homemade caesar.
Lunch with friends. Sitting outside, naturally. Always fine food and service.
This is our favorite neighborhood restaurant. We've just returned to NY after being in CO for 5 months, & were welcomed back with open arms. Food, wine, service all excellent as usual, thank you!
Old school Italian but in the best way! We absolutely adore this place, and they have a great outdoor dining during theb pandemic
My Chelsea go-to restaurant, now more than ever, given the pandemic. Their tables are well separated from each other, and UNlike most restaurants, they are ALSO well separated from pedestrians walking by, which I think is the biggest risk, given one is sitting down unmasked. Great job. Also unlike some other places since Covid, Chelsea Riztorante’s menu hasn’t been limited, nor have the portions been cut. Thank You!
They serve only serve outdoor now, but glad they are still with us, and should be supported!
We felt so welcomed at Chelsea Ristorante during Covid-19 outdoor dining. They really made an effort to make sure we were comfortable, the food was fantastic, the service wonderful, and we really had a great time. They made it a nice outdoor experience, which is difficult when you are in the middle of Eighth Avenue. I can't wait to go back for grilled artichokes, eggplant parmigiana appetizer, Branzino, shrimp and the wonderul Tira Misu!!
Great food. Terrific service.
Incredible experience. 10/10 would recommend! Food and ambiance was wonderful for a date night.
Highly recommend, food and waitstaff were fantastic.
Very nice restaurant with attentive service and good food. Cocktails are on the high side. Overall I recommend.
Everything always great. Great people. Great time. Great food. Love Chelsea Ristorante.
The food and service were great, but everything is a bit overpriced. We had cocktails, a glass of wine each, split a salad, each had an entrée, and split a dessert. With tax and tip, it cost us $180. That's a lot for what we got.
This was everything we wanted and more! The food was amazing and the service was even better!
Jam packed Valentine's Evening. Special Menu items were great. Drinks great. Service great. Donnie takes care of us. Ambiance great. Great.
Great place for an intimate dinner between a group of friends
Food and service was amazing!
Great classic Italian spot. Excellent service and food.
I recently dined here for the first time on a recommendation of a friend. Even though it is a neighborhood restaurant I never managed to get here. A pleasant find since I was dining with four former colleagues and a well behaved 11; year old. It was a post holiday gathering and we hadn’t seen each other in a long time. The noise level was perfect and we were able to hear each other around a round table in a corner. Food was good, not great, but certainly well priced. I would come back.
Very nice atmosphere and convenient location in Chelsea. Attentive waiters and delicious food and drinks!
Always a most enjoyable experience.the pasta special and bronzino are over the top. Highly recommended.
Excellent service, food, and atmosphere. I would most definitely return.
Great food. Quiet and cozy
We had a wonderful dinner here. The pizza francese was delicious. The pasta bolognese was also heavenly. Both were nice portions and very tasty. My friend got the ravioli and was also very impressed with the taste. The caesar salad was just Ok. There were 2 croutons in my entire salad.
Great location and where very accommodating for a large group
There were 7 of us . . .and it worked out perfectly. I usually go only during the week, so I was a bit surprised that the noise level was much more energetic than I am used to at this wonderful restaurant---but I am glad it was so crowded because I want it to last a long-long time in the neighborhood.
The welcome is always warm (as is the goodbye) . . and the servers are very nice and certainly efficient.
They have a wonderful wine list . . .I've never been let down by any server recommendations.
Pizza ala francese is a fabulous start. The gnocchi ala bolognese are the best I've had outside of a little and very local place close to but not near enough to the Spanish Steps in Rome to make it touristy (but that only makes them on Tuesdays)...
Desserts are yummy too---grandmother's cake and ricotta cheesecake are especially recommended.
I have eaten here before and have found that it is consistently a great place to dine. I had never been there during the holiday season but they went all out for Christmas - the tree and decorations were a treat.
I enjoyed the pleasant, laid back atmosphere of this restaurant. The food is solidly good and the staff very friendly. We started with delicious antipasti: fried calamari, which were surprisingly tender and not at all greasy, grilled vegetables and sautéed artichokes. I loved my main entrée, the chicken scallopini sorrentino, a breaded chicken cutlet covered with prosciutto, eggplant and melted mozzarella. Perfect comfort food! The portion was just right, and the flavors were well balanced and satisfying. My friends also enjoyed their dishes: the caesar salad, vegetarian risotto, and veal cutlet alla valdostana. Overall a very satisfying meal. The servers were kind and helpful, though it was not clear who was our main waiter, and at times they could've been more attentive. But at the end of the meal, they offered us an after dinner limoncello on the house, which we really appreciated. It's a great neighborhood place, and I will return for sure.
Very good service. Nice wine. Food good.
New Year’s Eve. They do it well.
When we lived in the neighborhood, Chelsea Ristorante was a staple. We have returned a few times recently with our children, and we always leave happy. The service and the food are as good as ever.
Always an excellent option for great food in Chelsea
A very good Italian restaurant that also serves think crust individual pizza of various types. Service is excellent and food is very good. I've been here several times and never been disappointed.
We originally had reservations for 8:00 but were finished at our museum much earlier than expected. Despite it being Xmas Eve and a packed restaurant, the maitre d' found our party of 5 a table. The service was outstanding and the everyone liked their main dishes. The calamari appetizer and the margherita pizza were just OK, but my branzino dinner was excellent. Cooked and seasoned perfectly. The restaurant was decorated beautifully for Christmas. We will definitely return here our next time to this area of Manhattan.
Went here for a holiday brunch with old friends, service, food and ambience was just perfect. Excellent value, excellent atmosphere.
We really enjoyed this restaurant! We are from a small town north of Seattle and appreciated the level of service and attention to detail. Great food and fair prices topped off the amazing service.
Jam packed Friday night.
Went with a group of 6
Had a blast and family style dining!!
Will be back-
Really nice experience. Friendly and attentive staff. Would recommend.
