Very nice restaurant. Close to the Joyce theatre. Very convenient. Wonderful staff. Attentive and always read your requests on Open Table so they can give you the table you request. Excellent fried calamari, spaghetti and meatballs, plus risotto. Definitely going again.

Very nice neighborhood Italian restaurant. The waitstaff is very pleasant. The fish was very fresh and a large portion. The risotto was also very tasty.

The food was much better than average and decently priced. The staff was friendly, courteous and efficient. And yes, it was quiet but it was also a slow night.

Amazing food - although the service is a bit haphazard: we had wrong drinks brought to the table and then the wrong meal order served to us. Partly this is due to the business of the restaurant - and it’s busy because the food is well worth the minor niggles with the service. If you can laugh it off when things go wrong, then this is a lovely way to spend an evening.

My first visit to this charming restaurant. My lasagna was delicious and the Riesling wine was perfect. I'll definitely be back! I attend The Joyce Theater often, and Chelsea Ristorante will now be my 'go to' restaurant in the neighborhood!

The atmosphere here was ok and the staff was friendly, but the food was really, REALLY bad. We ordered fried calamaris and it was so chewy and hard, I sent back the plate for the first time ever in my life. We asked for a replacement and got a salad instead, which was good. I got a gnocci dish, which was clearly frozen and very hard. The bread basket was good and so were the drinks.

Unfortunately, the price we paid, $140 per person, was absolutely out of any NYC standard.
Just a normal group dinner that ended up costing twice as much as as regular restaurant.
Not recommended
