I and my partner were visitors in New York City and in about two weeks time we tried this restaurant three times. I have to admit each time we were very much satisfied with the level of hospitality, the rich menu and the taste of the good and affordable food. My favourite dish was Strozzapreti Papa Francesco, a homemade pasta... More

We went there for a late afternoon brunch to celebrate a birthday on a Saturday. Great if you love loud pounding music where you can't hear anyone speak. Great if you love to party. Food was horrible. Scrambled eggs were watery and steak was over cooked and dried out. Not worth the $50 paid that included a poorly made Bloody... More

We ate here with friends during our recent visit to New York and the food was incredible. We got a selection of starters and shared them, every single one of them was delicious especially the shrimp and the eggplant. The restaurant itself is right in Chelsea in an area full of hip little restaurants and bars. The staff in the... More

We passed by this restaurant that was a lot bigger inside than it looks. Had a nice sized bar and plenty of tables. It was clear they wanted us to have a big check, but we just wanted a bit to eat. Waitress was pleasant, water glasses were kept filled and they were very attentive - despite our 50$ bill.... More

Great Atmosphere and vibe! Have a reservation before you go as it is always busy. I went without a reservation and had to drink at the bar before I got a table. Even though we had to wait, was one of the best brunch's I had in NYC.

We were visiting NYC looking for a great Nyc resturant before we left. We found il Bastardo. The greeter immediately sat our party of twelve. The decor and atmosphere was wonderful. The food was amazing for the price. Everyone enjoyed the fresh food, it looked good, smelled good and tasted great. The only drawback was the service from our waitress.... More

I visited this place for brunch on a Saturday afternoon with a group of people. Our reservation was at 12:30, and we were sitted pretty promptly, after the mandatory coat check. After 45 minutes, the waiter finally took our order. I had the steak and eggs. The food did not arrive until 2:00pm. This would not be so awful if... More

Stopped here for a late drink and snacks. Decent wine list and small plates, reasonably priced. We enjoyed the ambience and our server was charming.

Menu has changed and website was not updated however it was fairly good. Drinks were $12, well prepared and interesting. We tried the Fennel Salad and the Pizza due to the change to the new menu. At $8 each no complaints and portion size was average to small. Both would be considered starters and certainly not much more. Old menu... More

Staying in Chelsea

Neighborhood Profile
Chelsea
Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighborhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighborhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighborhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
