Great service, great choices for whole group - even non-vegans enjoyed
Excellent food and service. Highly recommend the primavera, caprese and the chocolate dessert! The god father was a fantastic drink. The rigatoni was good but very spicy!! Love Matthew Kenneys restaurants! Amazing vegan food.
Exceptional. The food was great and the staff took care of us for our special occasion!
The restaurant was outstanding. Food was delicious and we all had a great time. Will definitely be back!!
Great service and everyone was very friendly.
It was our first time at Sestina and it was great! The waiter was friendly and knowledgeable. We asked him to turn down the music a bit because we were sitting right next to a speaker and he did. The food was excellent! Even for non-vegans! And the service in general, such as refilling water glasses, clearing dishes, etc was also very good. I will certainly return!
Very good food and attentive service. I highly recommend the spicy rigatoni
The food was perfectly made. But just wish it didn’t come out so quickly.
If you’re in the mood for homemade pasta, go here! Great food and service! The staff are delightful and are very warm and inviting.
Quickly becoming the best vegan restaurant in town. Only downside is high noise level.
Food is excellent! I don’t have words to tell their vegan cheese. Pasta was cooked well. I just don’t like the garlic bread. It was just bread. Besides food, servers were friendly helpful. Definitely will go back!
Delicious! Nice staff and amazing food. Eat here!
The kale salad was so delicious!
Good experience. Good food and service
Sestina was lovely. Food was absolutely delicious, service was great, and the restaurant is in such a fun neighborhood.
Thank you so very much for your review! We know our neighborhood and feel right at home here :) We love being approachable in every way, without compromising our hospitality. Can't wait to see you back!
The pea ravioli and the spaghetti vongole were really salty. The vodka shells were delicious! I really liked the limoncello waffles - they’re almost cake like and more hearty than Belgian waffles, but the berries and basil all worked well flavor wise. The arancini were yummy, but my mom didn’t like the texture- kind of stuck to your teeth. The chocolate gelato and chocolate hazelnut budini were nice for chocolate lovers! The gelato isn’t as smooth as I remember dairy gelato, but I liked the dark chocolate flavor + the flaky salt + olive (?) oil combo.
Sestina is so amazing! We tried three different pastas and all were fantastic. Our server, June, was so amazing and friendly. Highly recommend!
We all got different pastas and we all loved them. The gluten free pasta does not taste gross like other gluten free pastas. Definitely a must try!
Great food, great service, not a better place for vegan Italian cuisine in NYC.
Loved this restaurant!!!
Food is great! Inside was noisy and music loud, could still talk but had to raise voice.
Everything we ordered was delicious and flavorful! Highly recommend!
I had no idea this place was vegan and booked it for a party of 6. My friends were not thrilled with that fact but to our pleasant surprise, everything we ate was delicious!
Unfortunately the service could use some help. No wait staff came to our table and no water was served until 15 minutes after we were seated, which was especially frustrating on such a hot day. We also ordered garlic bread as appetizers and two of us got salads as our entrees. They brought out the two salads immediately, followed by the other entrees 10 minutes later. The garlic bread arrived last. Additionally none of had plates when the food first arrived so were not able to share the dishes.
Sestina was the perfect place for my anniversary dinner with my husband. The food was finely crafted and fresh. The service was impeccable. They really made our night special. We will be back soon, no doubt.
Probably my fav vegan Italian in the world. The caprese they have is out of this WORLD!
I've been vegan for a year and a half and for my birthday finally got to take my friends to a place where I didn't have to nitpick through the menu to find something to eat. My 4 friends are all non-vegan and were very weary of what they were going to experience. Long story short, every single plate was completely licked clean! They loved every dish. The staff was attentive and friendly and very good with food and drink suggestions. While we loved everything, the truffle tagliatelle was my favorite menu item. I definitely recommend to vegans and non-vegans alike!
This is maybe the best vegan place in the entire city. The food is great, and original. The service is superb, and the prices are very reasonable. Bravo!
Lovely vegetarian restaurant with an open (glass enclosed) kitchen and creative takes on pasta classics.
Smokey Sugo Radiatore was the highlight on the savory side of things but it was Chef George's desserts that stole the show.
Raspberry gelato with a balsamic drizzle and pistachio gelato finished with olive oil were delicious but the two standouts were the unbelievably rich chocolate hazelnut bundino over salted caramel topped with an aquafaba meringue and the melt in your mouth panna cotta with boozy cherries.
Moral of the story... save room for dessert.
One of the best opentable finds I've ever made! I would never know this was a vegan restaurant based on the food alone - they didn't miss an ounce of flavor, texture or presentation!!
The food was absolutely delicious, hot when it came out, and we didn’t have to wait long even though the restaurant was busy. Service was also very quick and attentive.
Thank you so very much for your kind words KatieM! With many restrictions being lifted, the citizens of New York have been yearning to enjoy the summer weather, and we are here to oblige!! We have continued to grow each and every week and while we may be busy at times, we always strive to achieve maximum hospitality and service. Very happy to hear you enjoyed your experience and look forward to having you visit again! Best, CHRISTOPHER CORDERO // GENERAL MANAGER SESTINA PASTA BAR // NYC
The food was delicious and our waitress was adorable — only complaint is that the portions are a bit small, but otherwise, all perfect!
Hello Kelly! Thank you for your kind feedback on our dishes! Our hospitality is what we pride ourselves on here at SESTINA so its always good to hear its appreciated! Sorry to hear you're portions were not to your liking. In an effort to stay as affordable as we do, it took a painstaking process to find the right measurements, pasta styles, and work that goes into each dish. Always keen on hearing ways we can improve so we thank you very much and will take your feedback into consideration!
The food was SO good, great service. Highly recommend.
Delicious vegan creations with warm and friendly staff. Food came out really quickly with attention to detail and quality creations. Highly recommended for the Italian food lover who is hesitant do to dairy or animal products. Yum!
So wonderful!! The good is always delish and i love the vibe.
Thank you so much Samantha, we are glad you enjoy time and time again!
Dinner was amazing. Our waitress was absolutely wonderful. Actually, she was better than wonderful. I wish I remembered her name. We had the olives, garlic bread, tagliatelle truffle, rigatoni arrabbiata, spaghetti vongole, mushroom ragout and the 2 desserts. It’s hard to pick our favorite dish but If I had to it would be the one with the truffle cream. Sestina has nailed it! Our non-vegan friends we amazed they were able to create something that delicious with no egg or dairy.
Unfortunately the indoor busboy was extremely rude to us. I’m not even sure why we had any interaction because we were seated outdoors. I hope management catches him and educates him on how to treat people. Especially patrons but why be rude ever? Luckily the rest of our dining experience was perfection so we had a great night in spite of him.
Amazing dinner with wonderful service and fabulous recommendations! One of Matthew Kenney's best!!
Staff not fully trained on how to communicate about food allergies.
What a disappointment! The food looked amazing online. If you know anything about food and how to cook, you will be greatly disappointed. I’ve been a vegan now for 14 years, so maybe my bar is set too high. I would think that Matthew Kenney himself would have been dissatisfied if he ate at his own restaurant. First of all, the menu is not the same as what is posted online or provided on Open Table, so don’t get your heart set on certain pasta dishes or non-pasta options. We started with Olives, Caesar salad, Arancini, and garlic bread (which was completely subpar) and for our entrees, we shared the sweet pea & avocado ravioli that was bland with a sauce was way too salty and the Tagliatelle that literally had no flavor and seemed watered down... worst of all were our drinks- the blackberry sangria was too sweet and the grapefruit Negroni was disappointing for the price. During our dinner we had about 6 different people wait on us- and really no organization. Sorry to say we will not be back.
