Chef and owner Frank Crispo opened Crispo Restaurant in the heart of Chelsea and the West Village in the summer of 2002.

Our 150 seats create a lively, warm and friendly atmosphere where you can enjoy our signature Northern Italian cuisine.

We were nominated in 2002 for "Best New Restaurant" by Time Out magazine, and received an award for "Best Spaghetti Carbonara" by New York Magazine in 2004.

Food is not our only passion. Our extensive wine list covers the major regions of Italy and several other countries beyond. For enthusiasts, we have a full bar stocked with grappa, amaros, aperitifs and digestifs.

Come join us for dinner in our main dining room, or in our outdoor garden space. It remains open year long. With this newest addition to Crispo Restaurant you will truly feel like you are not in New York.

    Fried calamari bland and chewy, spaghetti vongole bland, chicken parm pretty small for the cost and needed some fries or said to complete the meal. Lots of better Italian restaurants out there

    The food is tasty, nice size portions as well, everything we ordered was delicious. But very uncomfortable because it’s crowded, very loud; my chair was constantly bumped by everyone who passed our table. I feel for the waiters, they are doing an amazing job despite the loudness and maneuvering between tables. They are a great crew.

    Having known about Crispo for years I'd never been there. I was staying in a friend's apartment that's very close by and I took him out for dinner as a thank you. Strangely, he had never been there and he's lived three blocks away for 20 years. I had come highly recommended to me over the years by many people and finally made it there. Food was wonderful, perfectly executed...the mushroom pappardelle particularly delicious. I assume the noodles were fresh as they tasted out of this world.

    I went with my daughter for dinner and decided to sit at the beautiful white marble top bar. The food choices were excellent as always! Jonas was our bartender and did an incredible job on giving us suggestions .You offered us excellent service, had a wonderful demeanor and gave us honest suggestions .. Our food and service were equally excellent! Duck Carbonara was exquisite! I have been coming to this restaurant for years and I highly recommend it. It is an excellent price point for incredible food! And excellent service!

    The carbonara is excellent, as well as the short rib ravioli. for dessert, i highly recommend the creme brule with the chocolate, paired with a tawny port.

    I have been coming here since they opened. I live around the corner. The food is never less than superlative. I am not that adventurous because they serve the best grilled branzino in the city and I always want it when I come here for dinner. I do however order different first courses and different desserts. They have vegetables that make a great first course--Brussels sprouts and cauliflower. The service is always excellent and their wine list is very reasonable.

    Our family went to celebrate our daughter ‘s anniversary. Not a table was empty. And yet, the service was outstandingly attentive. Appetizers were unique, sized right and delectable. Entrees were beyond delicious. The quality of the food, service and ambiance were all excellent.

    Food was good, but not great. Buffalo Mozzarella was amazingly fresh, bolognese sauce in my pasta was just okay. My wife did very much enjoy her papardelle mushroom pasta. The place is way too noisy, though.

    The food and drink selection was very good; the food itself was delicious. A bit cramped like most small NYC restaurants so you can hear the conversations at the tables next to you. I would recommend this place to friends.

    Good tasty food, just wasn’t what I was expecting. Jalapeño glazed pork sounded great, but even though the pork was juicy there was very little spice/heat to it. Wait staff heard me and said he’d relay my feedback to the chef.
