Good Food, Good Service and Nice Atmosphere

My wife and I celebrated our wedding anniversary with our two adult children and a daughter -in-law here on a Saturday night. I had never been there, but relied on Trip Advisor and Zagat in choosing it. It was a good place for a celebration and we had a most enjoyable meal. The food was very good... read more

On Sunday, we used a social living coupon to have brunch at Bistango. Overall, the food was five stars and the service was one star. It took over 50 minutes for our entrée to arrive. There were only less than six people in the restaurant at the time! Probably won't go back.

That is how we were greeted on a friday night, entering the restaurant at 9:52 pm. Rushing through the menu we took two caesar salad for starter- one came withoiut any dressing. And four pastas. OK but nothing deserving a more than average rating. The 8 minutes were long gone by the time we finished eating so we were not... More

Fantastic food and ambience although it was a little noisy when we arrived. The Sole special was really excellent. The wine was also reasonably priced and very tasty. An all round great experience.

Very nicely prepared and flavorful pasta, pizzettes and main courses. Right in our neighborhood -- always friendly and welcoming. Usually very quiet so a great place to really enjoy your lunch or dinner.

We went to this restaurant after finding it on trip advisor. Thankfully we booked a table as when we arrived it was really busy (always a good sign). We had one Gluten Free eater with us, and 2 standard. The bread arrived (GF and standard) and was yummy and the pasta dishes were great. I had the pasta with scallops... More

Since we were staying at the Gansevoort Park, it was convenient to have our last dinner in New York at Bistango, which is only a few blocks away. Our reservation was for three at 6:30. When we arrived, the restaurant was only partially full. We asked for the nice table by the window, and the host graciously seated us there.... More

Small cozy restaurant. Really good pasta dishes and starters. The service was really good even when the place was full with guests.

This little corner, midtown Italian restaurant was perfect for an easy dinner after traveling to New York. When we arrived only one other table was occupied, but by the time we left, it was packed. Many of the patrons obviously knew the staff, and it felt comfortable like a real Neighbourhood gem. I had mussels for an appetizer and they... More
