i was at the restaurant to celebrate my birthday with my friends who were regulars of this restaurant. Not the best neighborhood to walk late at nighta few years ago but with the supermarket fairway and new hip restaurants all that has changed for the better. Food is fresh and delicious, decor is very cute and service was great, our... More

This was our second visit to Pisticci Restaurant. Both times the food was very good, the service great, and the noise level high. It is almost impossible to engage in conversation unless you don't mind leaning forward and speaking up. Fortunately, the carafe of wine is decent and a good value, the salad fresh, and the specials interesting. We will... More

Stopped here for dinner at a colleague's recommendation after a college visit. We were not disappointed. Had the fennel and shaved parmesan salad and followed up with meatballs and polenta. It was excellent. Rest of the party enjoyed their pasta. Service was efficient and friendly and the house red recommendation was right on the mark. Will definitely eat her again... More

Had an amazing dinner with my friends for my birthday. Service was great, the server would come regularly to check if we were fine!. Somehow i thought the portion was small but food was great in taste!.

We came in without reservations and were seated very quickly. That and the ambience were the two nice things about our experience. The interior is lovely. But the food was served to us within minutes of ordering and, although we didn't feel rushed by the staff (they were friendly), we were out of there within a half hour of walking... More

They have limited tables open for reservation and encourage you to walk in. However (it seems fair though) they will not seat you until your party is full even if you are ready to order. That was a bit challenging for us as a party of 4 arriving from different places and committed to leaving at different times. But there... More

What a delightful, lively restaurant in a great location near Columbia and easy to travel to and from elsewhere. The 125th St. Subway Station is less than 2 blocks away. From pasta to pesce the food is fresh, well prepared, and tasty. Soups are excellent as well. Even on a very busy night, the restaurant and the restroom facility were... More

Small friendly Italian bistro near Columbia University on 125th. Outstanding pasta, reasonable wine choices. Went for lunch and tried spaghetti with prosciutto and spinach -- very good!

This was a fantastic experience for me and my family. The food, service, ambiance, prices, and drinks were all impeccable. This is a cozy and colorful restaurant with lighter Italian cuisine than many others. The apps, mains and desserts were all worth while. Would go again in a heartbeat. Parking was easy too. It's also right off the 1 subway... More

Italian food in Manchattan? Yes, Pisticci is a good idea. Is located in a central area and serves lovely pasta and salads. I liked also their wine... Prefer pasta with mushrooms and pasta with lamb! Their sweets are also good. Not so expensive....
