Chelsea Ristorante is an exellent restaurant. Our server was very attentive, efficient and professional. The food was delicious. They have a nice selection of pasta and pizza. I would like to commend our server for excellent service. I believe his name was Brian and he lives in Plainview, LI.

My sister and I had dinner at this restaurant. The service was very good, they are very attentive. We ordered the prosciutto di Parma with melon and the fried calamari. The prosciutto was very good. The fried calamari were bland and flavorless. For dinner we ordered the prawns (shrimp) and the linguini a la puttanesca. Both dishes were EXCELLENT! The linguini a la puttanesca and the shrimps were both amazing!!

The food is very good here, but the veggie servings could be a little more ample. Service is excellent. The wine list is not that long and the wines are very overpriced. It might be a good idea to offer some wine "specials" on the weekend. $13 for a smallish glass of mediocre Sauvignon Blanc is really not wonderful. Realize it's New York, but all their prices are up and the wine is particularly egregious in this regard.

Everything was great except for the “pork chop” that was on the dinner special that I ordered. It turned out to be two pieces of pork loin that was tasty but dry.

While the ambience was wonderful, the food was at best average. The Chicken Marsala, a special that night, was topped with tomato and mozzerella cheese, very small portion. Served with a small portion of green beans and carrots.

If I had wanted french food portions I would have gone to a French restaurant.

We had to signal for service several times, and only got attentive service when the staff believed we might want refills or dessert.
Given the quality and quantity, I consider the entrees over priced.
I would not return and would not recommend it to others.

What a wonderful family run restaurant! This was our second time here and the food is consistently excellent. They even have a wood burning oven. Celebrated our son’s 19th birthday dinner last night and our server (Donny) went out of his way to make it memorable and special. 🎉We can’t wait to go back! 😊

My friend and I both found the food mediocre. I had the chicken eggplant dish and the chicken was over cooked and the eggplant barely present. The tomato sauce was good.

Who needs trendy when there’s a place like this where the food is consistently delicious and the service is excellent. Had the chicken Marsala which was delectable and the special, a duck ragu with homemade pappardelle, to die for. Our server, Marco, was wonderful, and even brought delicious cookies when we were too full for dessert. This is one of our go to places when we are in NY and a favorite of friends who live there.

Great food and cute spot. Free dessert cookies were a lovely touch at the end of the meal. Sat us as soon as we arrived - much appreciated as some other places you need to wait even with a reservation.

We spent the weekend in NYC for a quick girls trip. We had 5 in our party, and made dinner reservations for 7pm on a Saturday night. The service , food and atmosphere were all terrific!
Our server was gracious and generous. We can't wait to return!!

The restaurant is a bit dingy and can use a decorating update. Though service was good, the food was disappointing. All 4 of us had pasta dishes, one was the special of the day. None were very good.

It’s great to find a place that remains old-fashioned but in a good way. Friendly welcome, tables not too close together, not too noisy. Always great food. Love the French pizza and the gnocchi bolognese. The prices on the wine list could be a little lower, though.

They were very accommodating & friendly. Gave special attention to the ladies w/ a nice description in chocolate at dessert. My brazino filet fish was great. The service was excellent. It's pretty much any kind of Italian food you want. My wine $11 a glass. They have a brunch I'd like to go to sometime & a happy hour.
