Absolutely amazing! They serve the best Italian in town.
Amazing meal and service. Always a consistent meal and amazing pasta.
Wonderful Italian food with great service....back room with fireplace is very cozy.
I had put a note in that it was a special birthday and unfortunately there was no acknowledgement of that from staff. Otherwise food and service was fantastic as always.
We were seated in the garden area, which was intimate and very nice. Highly recommend it.
I hadn’t visited Crispo in a few years and was happy to find it just as charming as the last time I ate there. Our server was excellent and everyone enjoyed their food. Well done!
Food was surprisingly dull and uninventive. Service was eager, but tardy.
Meal was disappointingly bland. Nothing special.
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
Authentic Italian restaurant, exposed brick gives it the old world charm. Amazing food and service.
The chef is accomplished at authentic Italian cuisine. Such a pleasure.
Consistently great food, coupled with excellent service and friendly atmosphere
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.
The food was great as always. Service is always very friendly. My favorite restaurant in the city!
The food was excellent! The figs and burrata were excellent. Everyone loved their meal (was there with 3 others). I felt is was reasonably priced.
The noise level is loud but it is a lively fun place. I will definitely recommend and be back!!!
Cool atmosphere, great food, and quick service! Highly recommend!
Quiet and reliable. Service is excellent. Food is very good. A go-to for local, quality Italian.
There are a lot of great pasta choices but also interesting “specials” every night that provide a lot of variety.
We Love Jonas!!!
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.
A great dining experience...the staff was very attentive and personable. The food was delicious. Short rib ravioli were amazing as well as the pork belly appetizer. We'll definately be back
So delicious! Already planning my next meal! I am slowly working my way through the whole menu
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.
Incredible food and amazing service!! Crispos should definitely be on your bucket list :)
Excellent food , service, love the ambiance and decor
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 and atmosphere were great, but our server Suzy was inattentive and seemed annoyed to have to give the limited service she did. Thank goodness for the rest of the staff.
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.
From hostess to bartender to waiter- everyone was excellent and friendly. Loved the fig appetizer, crusted salmon, and the bolognese. Will definitely return!
Lively, even on a Monday night. The food was amazing, especially the duck. Our waiter was so friendly and made the entire experience enjoyable. I will definitely be back!
The food was absolutely amazing! Burrata was probably the BEST I have ever had. Service was great and it is a beautiful restaurant.
I hosted 4 clients at Crispo. The entire experience was a 5-star delivery. Everyone was very happy with their meals.
Was highly Recommended to me, and now I highly recommend it to anyone else! Food and wine was fantastic as was the service
It was great! Thanks :)
Have always enjoyed Crispos. And after an absence of 8 years, I still enjoyed it.
Nice Italian Resteraunt. Parmesan Garlic Bread a must, grilled cauliflower and pine nuts also. Main dishes we’re well prepared. I ate three meals on mine. Be sure and ask to sit in back in the garden. Very beautiful
