Looks like a typical red sauce Italian, and it is all that, AND great service, great food, very welcoming and most of all, the tables are well spaced. You can have an intimate dinner here and the location cannot be bettered.

A good discovery for an area which is lacking in restaurant choices. The pasta choices are wide ranging and the pasta sauces for both me and my friend were delicious. Definitely try the mushroom and sausage antipasti. My friend got it with papardelle and it was yummy. I had the gemelli with pancetta, onions, etc. which was so good. Will definitely be back.

Staff was very kind and accomodating. The service was truly friendly. We never needed to call staff to the table. They were always attentive. Wine selection was excellent. Food was really good and very well presented. Finally, dessert was wonderful and they made it even more special with a presentation celebrating the occassion. Highly recommended the black pasta with salmon, sole filet, artichokes ... dessert: bomba.

I chose Chelsea Ristorante by location, sometimes a risky thing to do. My friend and I were delighted with the food, the service and the ambiance. Delicious Italian food served in a traditional style. Fresh ingredients. All in all, a lovely dinner. Can’t wait to go back.

We were getting together with friends in from out of town. I had never been here. The restaurant is lively and fun. They seated us after a drink at the bar. The menu has many interesting options and we enjoyed a terrific anti pasta round, wonderful entrees and a freshly prepared tiramisu for dessert. The service was friendly and professional and the food was fresh, tasty and good. I'd go here again in a minute! We had a great evening here.

Had a great experience! Food was amazing- I ordered the ravioli and it melted in your mouth. The staff was very friendly and went all out for my mom's birthday which made her day. I will definitely go back, this place was great!

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.

Always a wonderful meal - food, wine, ambiance all wonderful. They are accommodating to "tweaks" if you want to what's listed on the menu and they strive to always make you happy. In the end, we always are happy here!
