Description: Chef and owner Frank Crispo opened Crispo Restaurant in the heart of Chelsea and the West Village in the summer of 2002. Our 150 seats create a lively, warm and friendly atmosphere where you can enjoy our signature Northern Italian cuisine. We were nominated in 2002 for "Best New Restaurant" by Time Out magazine, and received an award for "Best Spaghetti Carbonara" by New York Magazine in 2004. Food is not our only passion. Our extensive wine list covers the major regions of Italy and several other countries beyond. For enthusiasts, we have a full bar stocked with grappa, amaros, aperitifs and digestifs. Come join us for dinner in our main dining room, or in our outdoor garden space. It remains open year long. With this newest addition to Crispo Restaurant you will truly feel like you are not in New York.

This is a local's restaurant - I was taken there by a local friend last year, and returned with my family this past February. We had a great time, the service is excellent, the dishes are super well served and really tasty. The wines are good. The environment is really nice and authentic.

In town this weekend on a visit to Chelsey Market and the High-line walk with an other couple. Or friends had gone to Crispo before and loved it. Very good service, good variety of food. We all had pasta and wine.. relaxed and not rushed . Looked small but there is a wonderful open courtyard in back that you need to ask for. open air with a moveable cover if needed. Walked off all the pasta on the River-walk that runs along the Hudson from the GWB to the Freedom Tower. A must do at night, safe and wonderful views..

Good atmosphere and tasty food. As you come in it feels small and cosy even though it goes far back. Plenty of choice of usual Italian food. Staff are friendly with excellent service. Good for couples, friends or groups.

I like the atmosphere of the restaurant. The service was very good. The food was good. Not sure why reviewers love the food. I was with 5 people and we all liked our meals but we were not raving about them. The portions are not too big which was fine with me. The prices were not too high.

The staff as well as the food was magnificent. The waiter extremely attentive whenever one of us left the table to make a call etc he was there making sure the napkin was folded and when it came to the white wine, he made sure it was kept on ice and that our glass was always full. Great night at Crispo.
