We popped into Restivo after finding it on Google Maps. It was just a block over from our hotel and very near the comedy club we planned to visit later in the evening. It is a very small location - I would say only 10-15 tables at most. Our waiter Ricardo was very kind and knew everything about the menu.

The food was excellent and very reasonably priced. As it was our first night in the big city I was expecting an expensive bill but this was not the case. I would absolutely reccomend Restivo to anyone.

This is a quaint little restaurant with green walls, fairy lights, mirrors and candles – perfect for a romantic meal or a nice place to have dinner with a small group of friends. The service was great – the staff couldn’t do enough for us – and quick too. The bread, olives and olive oil they gave us were a nice start to the meal and the carafe of wine for $24 was pretty good value for a restaurant in the area. As for the food, we had the gnocchi Verdi with tomato sauce and the chicken primavera with cheese ravioli. The gnocchi was really good and it went perfectly with the fresh basil and the richness of the tomato sauce. The chicken primavera was piled high with perfectly cooked vegetables and although the chicken was a little tougher than I usually like it was very tasty. The cheese ravioli turned out to be cheese fried in breadcrumbs rather than cheese in pasta, which is what I was expecting, but then that could just be me. It was pretty tasty regardless. All in all it was a good meal for a reasonable price (for Manhattan anyway) and we would go back again.
