We were out with dear friends for dinner. Sistina is beautiful. The service attentive, and the food delicious.
Excellent food, especially those white asparagus with morels mushrooms and black truffles . Fun energetic ambiance and a great service . Of course a great wine list. Good for a celebration highly recommended
Sistina has great food and service. Outstanding, we will definitely coming back.
Know it well, always a superb experience, whether for a special occasion or a Sunday night last-minute dinner
The food and service was incredible! So glad we came!
Wonderful place in the neighborhood!!
Love all the pretty flowers they have in the spring and summer!
Sistina is truly a fantastic restaurant. My first time there but for sure won't be the last. The food at Sistina is just amazing! Each dish is made of fresh and marvelous ingredients - with perfect seasoning and presentation. The service was just perfect, great timing on service , attentive but invisible , always gracious. The wine list is carefully curated and their desserts were delicious. Loved it!
Sistina remains one of my favorite special occasion restaurant. It provides outstandingly delicious and beautifully presented food and attentive but not obtrusive service in a lovely brownstone setting. My one quibble is the $18 price for a side order of Brussels sprouts.
Wonderful food, amazing service , great place to
have lunch. Highly reccomend this place .
Amazing experience at Sistina! Really good food ambiance and great service . Highly recommend this place
Wonderful food, service and ambiance. Expensive but excellent all around. Lovely for special occasions.
I ordered "medium' veal chop and received "well done" but did not complain, except now you are asking
generally wonderful svce and ambience and pricey
Delicious meal and the ambiance was lovely! Our servers were so kind and made sure our experience was perfect!!
We have been going to Sistina since it opened on the UES and have never been disappointed.
The owner Giuseppe might not be the friendliest person in the restaurant business how ever he over sees every little detail to make sure your dining experience is excellent.
BEWARE! This restaurant is not welcoming to WOMEN ONLY patrons! Arrived there with my mother and adult daughter to celebrate my mother's completion of cancer treatment. We were the first patrons to arrive at the restaurant and were seated at the rear of the restaurant next to the kitchen and waiter’s staging table. When asked if we could be seated elsewhere, we were told that EVERY table had already been requested! When they presented the feature wine of the day, I asked what kind of wine it was and was actually told it was, "Italian". We initially tried to leave a review and the restaurant attempted to prevent us from doing so by deleting our reservation. We requested open table to reinstate (thank you!) My media savvy daughter opted to find another restaurant nearby and we found a much much better place to enjoy before our broadway show. This place is too stuffy and unwelcoming to half of the population. Do not return without your male escort!!!
I am very passionate about Italian food and everything was delicious. Slightly pricey but worth it very satisfied we recommend this place for special occasions
food service and wine were all excellent.we love this place and try to go when we're in town. We brought friends who had not been before and they loved it too. Also, there's a great wine list! And a lot of good specials definitely we will back soon sistina is now our favorite spot
Delicious Food, Great Service- could not be better....
Lovely setting. Mediocre service...too much "attentiveness" like they needed to turn over the table quickly. It was not crowded on this night so this approach was definitely not warranted. No need also to recite 20 items that are "specials" before one has a chance to see the menu. This is not an upscale approach for an elegant restaurant.... this is managements fault, not the particular waiter.Food was good but prices were outrageous especially for wines. Most marked up over400%.
Sistina is a upper east side gem .the atmosphere is great and the service is the perfect balance of attentive without being intrusive. The menu is great with lots of specials options to satisfy anyone. Small details like the friendly welcome, delicious olives and perfect bread to start make you feel like you’re on home.The rest of our evening was great with excellent food and wine and even better conversation with the friendly staff . We highly recommend this restaurant
Great service.Food was delish, we had fresh pasta with truffle pasta big enough to share also they have a tons of specials all sounds really good definitely we will try next time.the place had atmosphere.Worth the price-tag. Restrooms clean also. Great
spot in the best area
We've been coming to Sistina every year for two years now and it never disappoints! The quality and variety of food is incredible,we loved the deserts as well,and the vibe is fantastic - so fun and positive! Also, the wait staff is always very on top of things, accommodating and friendly. Definitely highly recommended
The service was amazing. The appetizers were incredible. My scallops were overcooked and the presentation was not great. No fresh cheese was offered for our pasta. Our cheese pasta and broccoli was not very cheesy at all. Overall, the main entrees were overpriced and not that interesting or tasty. The dessert was delicious.
Restaurant's decor is lovely....... very conducive to conversation. Food is excellent even though I would suggest it is overpriced. Service is almost too attentive. There is a tendency to rush one through their dinner. Wine is very overpriced.
Good, not great compared to the value for money. Waiter had to tell us verbally about the 40 specials they had. He was nice to do so, but was hard to follow everything. Ended up with a $75 pasta dish that was not worth the money. Wouldn’t come again.
The service, food, and wine was fantastic! We will certainly return.
We have eaten at many good restaurants in NYC but this is one of our favorites. Everything was impeccable.
It’s a bit pricey but very good
I have been to Sistina many times, for lunch and for dinner. I find it to be a gorgeous place, especially the Garden Room where you feel as if you are dining outside. The service is impeccable and not intrusive. I have never ordered a dish that was not delicious. I keep coming back. It is pricey, but the prices are well-deserved!
Absolutely beautiful setting with outstanding service and ambiance. Will definitely return again.
A neighborhood gem perfect for special occasions!!
Much prefer the main dining area when sitting for two.
I never write reviews but I will about Sistina. This place is always outstanding! Great food, beautiful dining room, and excellent service. Our waiter Jahangir was supper attеntive, friendly and sweet. We had a wonderful lunch. Thank you! And we will be back soon
Very, very good but more expensive than expected
Wonderful Experience, food was outstanding and service was first class Truly a remarkable experience,we definitely recommend coming back again sooner
Fabulous experience. We have been to Sistina several occasions and it is consistently delicious. This past week, we celebrated a birthday. The food was fantastic (in particular the wild mushroom ravioli with truffle cream) and the service was impeccable;Our waiter was particularly attentive to our needs without being overbearing. Great drinks as well 🍹 definitely we are coming back soon
Parents 64th anniversary!
Sistine is always fabulous.
Amazing kitchen and ambience.
Very good, even excellent Italian cuisine. With daily specials the menu has a lot of choices. Since it was white truffle season, they had them, but made no mention of what certainly would have been a stunning price had we not known. There is a "good value" couple pages on the wine list with about a 3+X markup, but the superb and vast rest of the wine list looks more like 4x-5x (maybe more for some). If you have a day or two to browse you might find something of better value. The food is more reasonable than the wine.
Most beautiful bar in Manhattan. Delicious, elegant, thoughtful menu, charming service, and charming owner Giuseppe. Favorite neighborhood spot - never get tired of it!
We went to sistina for the first time after hearing many good reviews from others and we were not disappointed. I highly recommend the veal and the pasta dishes. My scallops with black truffle were quite delicious as well. We loved the desserts and the extra treats the waiter gave us. They also have a lot of specials they where so many that we couldn’t remember so impressed for the way the waiter described we will try the next time, but the a la carte dishes also looked tempting. It was an altogether delightful repast and I highly recommend Sistina to anyone looking for creative pasta and meat dishes served by a professional staff
