The food was good! Not the best pasta I've ever had, but definitely glad we tried it out. Service was a little slow (got our drinks after our appetizer which is a pet peeve of mine), but overall enjoyed the night.
The pasta is excelle
Very reasonably priced and delicious vegan pastas. We ordered extra garlic bread because it was so amazing. More of a loud/casual dining vibe, and tables felt cramped together so wouldn't go here for the dining experience. But will be back for the food!
Excellent service. Great food and cocktails. I definitely come back. Thanks
I've been to Sestina before -- good food, nice atmosphere, usually good service. On Thanksgiving Day, I had an 8:45pm reservation for 3. I arrived 10 minutes early. The friendly hostess seated me. I was at my table at 8:40pm. The server came over and without even saying hello, asked when the other 2 would arrive. He gruffly said, "because we're closing at 9pm." Huh? First off, my guests weren't late. And I doubt the restaurant would throw us out 15 minutes after our reservation time.
He then walked away without asking if I wanted a drink, or even water. A party of 3 were seated at 8:55pm; he walked past me to bring them a carafe of water and took their drink order. (Another server noticed, brought water and bread, and apologized for him.)
When my guests arrived promptly at 8:45pm, he immediately came up to them, saying, "Oh, finally." He wanted our order as soon as they had their coats off. The food arrived quickly, but he'd already forgotten who got what. About 30 minutes after sitting down the check was on our table.
I get that it was Thanksgiving and the staff was eager to close up. But if you accept a reservation at 8:45pm, you shouldn't be rushing a table to leave the minute they sit down.
My only complaint about Sestina--and it's enough to make me not want to return--was this server. Rude, rushed, and inattentive.
The food was creative and delicious. The portions were satisfying. The salads and pastas had a lovely presentation as well.
Very good food. We tried (3) dishes and each was excellent in their different distinct ways. The portions are slim and the presentation lacks grace and circumstance but the taste and ingredients overcome the lack of largesse and pomp.
No real appetizers and disappointing that all bread is with vegan butter-for those of us who are trying to remain oil-free a letdown.
Food was delicious. Truffle pasta a must.
Service was mediocre.
Delicious vegan Italian food. Sestina is my go-to place to bring my family when they visit or to go to on a special occasion.
Screaming loud and frenetic the service was distracted and uninformed. Never again.
I had a terrible experience at Sestina. I told the waiter I was allergic to pine nuts and
Good pasta!!! Love that it’s all vegan 🌱 desert was yummy as well :)
Great food, especially for the price. Chill staff. Uptempo music.
Pumpkin ravioli were delicious, however 7 small pieces for $18 not nearly enough. Hazelnut chocolate dessert might have been the best dessert I ever had! An absolute dream of flavor and consistency. The restaurant is very dim and noisy but the food was a delight.
The menu is quite small but everything was delicious - our waiter was from Mexico and he was very attentive - overall a great experience - would recommend for anyone hesitant to try vegan - this will change your opinion for sure!!
The Caesar salad is amazing and the happy hour cocktails are delicious. Didn't love the "vongole" pasta, way too lemony and unnecessarily spicy. Will just try another pasta next time as I'll definitely go back.
The service, the food, the atmosphere… wow!!! What a restaurant. Im not even vegan and I loved my dish. Great spot to take that special someone on a Sunday night!
Dennis is outstanding; however, we did not have him as a waiter last night, unfortunately. The spaghetti was recommended to us, by Helen, and to our disappointment, fell way short of our expectations. The truffle pasta, Caesar salad, sangria, and Dennis will be the only reasons for our future visits.
Great food. Vegan food that doesn't just need to be for vegans (I'm not and I still really enjoyed it).
Hi Mark, Thank you so much for your review and for sharing your experience with the open table community, we look forward to serve you agin soon and exceed your expectations. Sincerely, Ana F. General Manager. Sestina NYC.

This totally Vegan restaurant offers a limited selection of dishes. Among our dinner choices were the truffle tagliatelle (terrifically creamy), shells with vodka sauce (good and spicy), and the spaghetti with mushrooms (bland and watery).
The outside seating occupies a small space in front of the restaurant. We sat near the open doors into the indoors where 80's disco music was loudly playing.
Plus: My Vegan guest enjoyed her food and loved having an entire menu from which to choose. Services was efficient and pleasant.
Minus: The outdoor seating was not relaxing and the spaghetti with mushrooms was a total waste of money.
Wanted to support a vegan restaurant, since there aren’t too many vegan options. The food was decent, albeit overpriced. Everyone in our party had a good enough time, however I prefer my own home cooking.
VERY GOOD RESTAURANT! IT'S WORTH IT ! I WILL COME BACK FOR SURE!
Hi Sarah, Thank you so much for your review, we are so happy you loved the food and the service, we look forward to serving you again soon. Sincerely, Ana F. General Manager. Sestina NYC.
This was my first time experiencing this restaurant. I did not know what to expect and was pleased from the moment I arrived. The host and waitstaff were welcoming. The ambiance was great. The food, beverage and dessert was delicious. I look forward to returning again one day soon.
Hi Vegas, Thank you so much for your Review, We are so happy that you enjoyed your experience with us and we look forward to serve you gain soon!
This is one of the best vegan pasta places I have ever been to!
Hi Mira, Thank you so much for this amazing review! We look forward to serve you again soon. On Wednesdays we have wine bottles 50% off!! Sincerely, Ana F. General Manager. Sestina NYC.
The food was incredible - cannot believe it's dairy free and I ate the regular pasta without any digestion disturbances. Portions were perfectly portioned and the waitstaff was lovely
I cannot say enough about how well they operate, create and present a charming dining experience. Only one member of our party is vegan, however we ALL loved scraping our plates clear.
Our waiter was great, the additional table attendants were on point.
We loved the food. Garlic bread and Arancini were phenomenal. Pasta was good with fresh made delicious sauce. When they say it is spicy, -- it is really spicy! Great spot for vegan and non-vegan foodies.
Hi Natie, Thank you for sharing your experience with the Open table community, We know what pasta you had, the Rigatoni Arrabbiata! We would love to see you again soon, and hopefully exceed your expectations!! Sincerely, Ana F. General Manager. Sestina NYC.
as someone who can't eat dairy, being able to eat ravioli and tortellini was a treat! not exceptional, but very good pasta, good price point and great spot overall. would go back.
The food was amazing, came fast and service was good as well . I would totally go back!
Server was attentive and food service was quick. Loved our meal!
We'd been to and very much liked nearby Bar Verde a couple of times, so wanted to try this related veggie place, too. Very happy to have eaten there, and would happily return.
On a super humid night. No ac. You have to ask to finally get a waiter to come over. The garlic bread is a soggy cheap hoagie roll lol. I’ve been vegan for 9 yrs. this place is not a good look
Loved it. The waitstaff was so great - very timely, attentive without hovering. Never felt rushed even when the place was packed. The food is delicious "comfort food" - hearty pastas and raviolis - a shiitake mushroom clam dish. Really fun. I do think their bartender could be a bit better. He or she over-stirred or over-iced our drinks so they were a bit watery. If you opt for beer or wine, though, it's great.
Great food, couldn't believe it was vegan! Also affordable for NYC. Would have liked a bit more help when we asked for what they recommended etc, but otherwise it was great and I would go back
The garlic bread, Caesar salad, and pesto pasta were delicious. The truffle pasta was over cooked and not very flavorful.
We are so sorry that our Tagliatelle Truffle was below par, we take feedback very seriously and have reviewed this with our restaurant team. If you would be so kind as give us another chance and return to Sestina NYC, I would like to personally ensure that your next experience demonstrates the exceptional quality of food and service that we strive to achieve.

As a long time vegetarian, it is wonderful not to be limited to specific items on the menu. Plus the food is outstanding
