“Must visit Italian north of Columbia U.”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

Pisticci is one of those off-the-beaten track places NYers and discerning tourists really must try. It's on LaSalle St which is just south of 125th St and west of Broadway, close by the #1 train's 125th St. stop. This area is north of Columbia's main campus and is well worth the trip. The place is small and welcoming, the bar is pleasant and the food is terrific. Nothing too fancy but everything is well-prepared and fresh. It's classic Italian with a slight nod to northern. The wait staff is top notch. Pisticci is a great place for a small celebration or a nice date.

“My Favorite Italian”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

This is the best Italian in Morningside, bar none! It can be a bit crowded, but the food is awesome! Do not miss the garlic bread, it's the best I've ever had, really the best. I also love the pasta. You cannot go wrong, everything is amazing.

Wait staff was nice and patient. They served excellent bread before the meal. I had a tasty salad. My daughter had very nice omelette. The ambiance is pleasant.

“One of my favorite places in NYC”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

The food here is delicious, fresh, reasonable, and apparently extremely low-impact (environmentally speaking). Some of the best Italian in the city in this unassuming but nice little haven with a lively energy.
