Starter was great - gamberetto (Highly recommended). Salmon for main was medium rare. Very nice but was already nearly full from starter!

Had a great meal here. Great appetizers and pasta. The big plus was the hospitality. People here greet you like regulars. A special shout-out to Anthony who greets everyone like a long-lost friend, even if you are visiting for the first time. Food is great, ambiance is super, A wonderful place!!!

I last visited Bistango in 2012. Now in 2016, the restaurant outdid itself with home-made eggplant ravioli, mushroom-folate salad and a delicious Tuscany wine. Our friends who live in NYC were delighted to find this restaurant and said they will come back again. A true gem even if one does not have Celiac or food intolerance. Staff brought out a... More

Thewestchestarian is all for subtlety and understatement but on a street where neon dominates, finding Bistango may result in a cell phone call from outside the establishment. Having found the dark wood decor'd rectangular dining room, good for Manhattan service lead you to the nearly communal eating seating arrangements. Talk with your nearby neighbor about how good the food is.... More

I didn't want to stop eating. Everything was so delicious. I had a pasta dish with crab and scallops. Really extraordinary! I would highly recommend and a great location!

This was this best meal we had on our five day visit to NYC. It is a very small restaurant, so I would highly recommend reservations. Since it is a small local restaurant, seating is tight and the atmosphere is lively and a little noisy, but just enough to make it fun. The wine we ordered was delicious and our... More

I came with my boyfriend for brunch with a Groupon. Our waiter was great very friendly. The food was very good and they have a lot of options. Not every brunch does. Will definitely be back

This is a great place for traditional italian food, where the staff are so friendly. It really is a joy to visit this restaurant. As a strict vegetarian I have only eaten the pasta dishes but they are consistently fresh tasting and remind me of the food that I have enjoyed on italian vacations.

This restaurant is absolutely AMAZING. If you're looking for a great Italian food, with awesome gluten free options, this is the place. I got the mushroom ravioli and it was unbelievable. This is my favorite restaurant in Manhattan by far.
