Will easily become one of my favorite neighborhood brunch spots. The food is fantastic and the service is always wonderful - we enjoy dinners here too. Definitely recommend. Not to mention- it’s so pretty inside!

The new menu is wonderful. Now you can get salads and fish. The addition of small plates is a big plus. The option for large or small sizes on several items was great. The prices are very competitive and excellent value. There were so many things I am anxious to try. We will be back!

I really enjoyed this restaurant. The atmosphere was very nice, relaxing and not noisy at all. The service was wonderful, they facilitated a special request with no problem and the food was very good. Amazing Brussel Spouts. I would look forward to going back.

The restaurant is Italian in concept and although there are other menu options that is the way to go. Preparation is simply outstanding and the food delicious. Service pleasant and efficient, even when dining after an event when everyone comes in at once.

So happy to see Brunch at the UWS spot. The bottomless mimosas were a hit as was the burger! My friends all enjoyed their meals as well. See you next weekend 'Cesca!

We enjoyed the latest addition to the 'Cesca line-up. Brunch is exactly what the doctor ordered. Great menu offering lots of options as well as their regular menu with lighter portions.

Great addition to the already fantastic menu. Good job adding brunch! The eggs were superb! Bottomless Blood Mary's were the way to go! The only think missing is a DJ!

The new layout of ‘Cesca is terrific—much more spacious and comfortable than it was when we last went in November. Service was better, too—very attentive and friendly. Same great pasta dishes! We’re putting this one back on our favorites list.
