Such a great evening! The food was amazing and the staff was incredibly nice. I will definitely be back!
Will definitely go again. Food was delicious. Would be great for lunch.
Sestina never disappoints. I’ve come here twice with a friend who eats meat and she is obsessed. She always says it’s her favorite meal in NYC and I must agree!! I don’t know why it’s so hard to find fresh, authentic pasta that is also vegan. If you’re vegan and have been dying to try some delicious fresh pasta come to Sestina immediately!
My friend and I had the most delicious dinner here. Service was good, food was excellent and drink were well balanced. I highly recommend.
It seemed they were short staffed. The manager did accommodate our bill due to the lack of service and waiting for 30 minutes to even get greeted upon being seated. I’m sure it would be a better lunch spot, especially if they have more employees working a shift
The food was delicious. The service was amazing. The drinks were spot on (we had the sangria and Negroni). Will definitely return again.
Phenomenal restaurant. Every item on the menu was amazing!
Every dish was incredibly amazing. The vegan cheeses tasted like real cheese. The pastas were creamy and unbelievably delicious. The meatballs were so good. I had the lemon meringue desert and oh my god. I hope they open back up soon, def my new favorite spot.
I am not vegan but this was terrific by normal standards
The “outdoor” dining patio is completely walled in. We made reservations for outdoor dining, and we did not feel safe eating in a completely walled in table with unmasked people close to us. Please advertise this on your website. Our food was amazing, but we got it to go and left because we didn’t feel comfortable sharing the air with so many people.
Impeccable service. Superb food. Excellent dining experience. Christopher Cordero, the general manager went far above and beyond to ensure that this 21st birthday occasion was memorable for all. We could not be more grateful for the attention to detail and the sincere concern expressed by Christopher and the team to see all was perfect. Thank you.
Sestina is one of the restaurants by fancy vegan chef Matthew Kenney. There’re many others in NYC and all over the world. (We’ve never been to any before, as probably we’re too frugal and big-portion-lovers to pay so much for such small plates🙈🤣)
Our overall experience was wonderful! The staff was super friendly and attentive. When I said it’s my birthday🥳, the local chef personally reached us and asked how everything was (or maybe we looked too suspicious finishing 5 dishes in 10 minutes or so?😅). At the end, they served us our dessert with a birthday candle and chef came again to describe all the ingredients🪄.
The food was delicious and very light (so we didn’t feel like we overate, even though we finished 6 dishes🍽, including dessert🍧 - swipe to see what exactly we had from the menu).
Italian wine was great as well.🍷
Amazing time! LOVED the Ricotta appetizer! I also had the Ceasar salad and the Casareece pasta and they were so delicious. The non-alcoholic pomegranate was so yummy.
Felt very safe as far as distance, temperatures being checked, hand sanitizer, etc. Can't wait to go back!
This is my regular place for amazing pasta and arancini! Must try their cocktails! Especially the sangria! See you guys very soon!!!
Don’t over think, just go!
The staff was extremely attentive and knowledgeable. It is amazing how the food was transformed with simple ingredients. A prolific meat eater, our friend that joined l, was in awe of the carbonara. Will certainly be back again
So far best plant based Italian I’ve had , casual date or just one for dinner either way works
I didn’t know this restaurant was a vegan restaurant and gosh I didn’t care! It was SO delicious!
Favorite pasta restaurant :)
Service and food incredibly!
Food and drinks were absolutely incredible! Will come again.
Relaxed atmosphere, great service. We ordered several small plates to start and the portions were abundant. The arancini and chickpea socca and meatballs were all delicious. It's possible to totally fill up on these, although the pasta main dishes were also amazing.
This restaurant also serves delicious craft cocktails.
Food was fantastic and the servers were lovely. Warm, safe seating outside not too close to other tables.
My husband’s birthday!
The food was creative- the wine selection was terrific- the staff were super attentive and helpful- and the outdoor dining was a very pleasant experience - it’s a very lively and vibrant neighborhood-
The service here is impeccable and the atmosphere is quiet yet amazing. It's a pretty small place but not a hole in the wall. My boyfriend didn't care for a dish we ordered and the server took it off our bill without us even asking! A great place for those with food allergies - they go above & beyond (plus, the food is AMAZING).
Very nice meal. Would totally go again. I'm not vegan or even vegetarian. This was just good food.
So delish!!! Not expensive but great ambiance. Was expecting it to be way pricier
It was our first time dining here. The food was delicious but the portions were small and a bit pricy. We were able to sit inside which was nice considering it was a little chilly. Overall, our experience was great, staff were friendly and even though it’s plant based you couldn’t tell
Food we tried were excellent! Fresh ingredients and well seasoned. Also excellent service from the restaurant staff. Highly recommend and will return.
Can't remember her name but server was very nice and informative about the menu. Food was good. Would come again.
Outdoor dining is great and comfy but the proximity to the street and passerbys without masks made us feel a bit uncomfortable as they walked by our food and didn’t have masks on. Some plexiglass along the tables that are closest to the street would be a game changer
Love the outdoor area, vibe and service. Food was underwhelming. Menu sounded delicious but didn’t deliver. Food wasn’t so hot and flavors were meh (especially the gnocchi). Not the best Mathew Kenney experience.
Excellent vegan pasta restaurant and one of the few places I've seen where the tables are actually spaced far enough apart that eating here feels safe. Highly recommend it!
Thank you so much Grace! It means a lot that you set aside time to leave us feedback and it is greatly appreciated. We do take safety and protocol very seriously here at SESTINA and will do everything we can to ensure all our guests feel safe and welcome!

Very good and attentive service
Excellent food and service. Would definitely go back.
Excellent, refined Italian food in a great setting.
Underwhelming unfortunately. Was excited to try and left
Matthew Kenney does it again - highly recommend this place!
Incredible food, ambiance, and service!
While I miss the former plant food and wine, Matthew Kenny makes up for it with his new Italian place.
The Arancini was the best we’ve ever had. Pasta are done so well, with such flavors. It also a great outdoor dining spot.
music was a little too loud, but food amazing and unique!!
