I have been to Crispin's twice so far and wanted to wait until my second time to write a review to make sure I did not have a uniquely pleasant experience the first time I went. In a neighborhood with innumerable places to choose from, this is a stand-out. The service is excellent, the ambience is warm and welcoming and the food is outstanding - a wide selection of expertly prepared dishes with fresh, flavorful ingredients. If an Italian-American friend of mine swoons over a rigatoni dish and says she cannot wait to come back, you know they must be doing something right. I had branzino that was better than at my -so far - favorite place in the neighborhood I live in - melt-in-your mouth tender white flesh under a crispy skin broiled to perfection - and another friend's salmon looked good enough for me to regret I could not order a second entrée (and she confirmed that :) ). Our server was friendly, polite, knowledgeable and very accommodating. I should add that at this second visit we used a groupon ... and you know that you are not always treated like a full-paying customer at some places when you re dining at a significant discount. Not here. Portions, quality and service were as outstanding as the first time I dined here, without a groupon. These people care about their guests. Like my friend, I cannot wait to be back!
