Not worth the price or trip. Very expensive for mediocre food and VERY expensive wine.
We were in an outside space so the noise level was very low. Everything was delicious and really enjoyed the experience. Even outside, it was warm enough. We would definitely come back!
Simply outstanding food and service. The list of specials alone is worth the visit.
we were outside and it was cold but the staff brought us pillows to put on the chairs and blankets...the food was very good and the staff was so kind.. i will go back after Covid and try indoor....
It is a beautiful spot with great food. Everything was delicious and service was great. We ate outside and it was quite warm with the heat lamps.
I love this Italian place! so legit!
The service is amazing and the food outstanding, also the scenario is so chic! Totally recommend it:)
Delicious outdoor lunch near the Met Museum. Sardine appetizer, Sicilian red mullet & a pasta dish plus dessert: chocolate & a Baba rum. On the expensive side for lunch.
Overall a good experience - classic Italian cuisine on the pricier side. Tried a sea urchin & calamari pasta special and was not impressed - lacked flavor and the consistency was a bit off. The classic pasta dish with tomato and mozzarella was much more flavorful. Wine was very good!
Enjoyed very much! Will definitely be back. Delicious food, beautiful unique decor.
Outside dining in February is not easy. Food and service wonderful. Food came out super hot which helped a lot. It would help if the cocktail menu included hot drinks and they offered blankets. Otherwise, a wonderful dining experience.
Outstanding food although very pricy. Great wine selection as well. Outdoor seating was comfortable.
Excellent food and service. Would highly recommend.
We ate outside for lunch. Tables nicely spaced, staff was professional, and food was delicious.
Excellent all the way around!
Should have said you could have scallops with no truffles, would have liked option our guest removed them. $75?
Great service and food!
Enjoyed food and service. More heating is definitely needed like other local restaurants have to keep customers warm. Also tent should reach the ground and seal to help eliminate wind and drafts
Best angel hair pomodoro in the city. All the food is delicious. Service is wonderful and the outdoor setting is fantastic
Delicious and cozy despite the winter outdoor dining challenges. And very pretty.
A great outdoor experience despite the cold, and the breaded portobello mushroom appetizer was warming. Pasta was toothsome and veal was delicious; grateful to the som for his suggestions on pairings.
Amazing food with amazing service!
Amazing as always even with COVID restriction!!
Great ambience, truffle dishes were really good! Outdoor seating was heated very well. Highly recommend this place.
great experience, excellent food
I don’t want to add more
The food quality and taste were excellent. We had the zucchini flowers, pasta threpanese and Branzino in salt which was wonderfull.
Only the Papa Noel dessert was not so good - We personally didn’t like it.
Extraordinary service, food and ambiance .
So thankful to have Sistina nearby...
A completely beautiful dining room. Food is outstanding, served by true professionals on gorgeously elegant dinnerware. A true dining experience.
Delicious food, very large selection of interesting dishes, outdoor dining was fine. Looking forward to eating inside their beautiful dining room. Attentive service.
Always a great experience.
beautiful setting with fantastic food and service
Food was fresh and well presented. Fish was salty and ordered a "meh" chocolate fondant for $25, so not worth it. Service was overall good (friendly & knowledgeable) but slow, and not as pro-active as I expected for what I had pre-qualified as fine dining (?) ~ best recommendation is for staff to get in tuned with diner (since many may go there to enjoy an occasion). I was there for good food (in/out type of mindset - and did mention this to the server). Had to request for heaters to be turned on, as I finally deemed my state to be uncomfortably cold (after one hour & 2nd course was just about to arrive). The hostess was lovely, but the phone ringing volume, so loud! Overall, a good dining experience, but I was expecting much better.
Excellent. Linguine was perfection
We wanted to enjoy one of the last warm evenings in NY. It was our first experience at Sistina. Food and service impeccable.
Salmon was ok and the fish special was ok. Disappointing and far more expensive than it was worth.
The food at Sistina is wonderful. It's just too bad that the service falls so far short.
Excellent considering the efforts that had to be made to create a safe environment during the early reopening for indoor dining - the menu and service can't be beat.
Eclectic and well executed menu, very interesting choices superbly prepared. Service was initially a bit pushy but quickly became gracious and very hospitable. Highly recommended.
Amazing except the maitre d who was pretty rude - but all other staff charming and best food I’ve had in a long time
