Service is the best thing here, only slighter better than the food. Food is very good, with a wide range of pastas/ seafood/desserts to choose from. Also, corkage fee is very reasonable ($15/bottle). Our waiter was one of the best in any restaurant that I...More

We like to dine at Cafe Sistina because they have good food, reasonable prices (though veal prices have increased considerably), and is located in a non-touristy area with parking. The decor is unique with floor-to-ceiling Renaissance murals painted by the former owner. Dishes tried on...More

Up close and personal with the Sistine Chapel paintings, once you adjust to that you will have a very nice meal. A family friendly place for sure. Servers happy and helpful, food served in generous portions, but true to the Italian roots of the owner

Friendly staff, attentive service, reasonable prices and great food... what more do you need! We had chicken parm, chicken alfredo and chicken Marsala -all excellent. The bread was warm with fantastic pesto butter. We finished off the evening with raspberry cheesecake. They also validate parking.

Interior is nothing short of spectacular! Mostly the food was decent except the eggplant in my wife's Eggplant Parmesan was tough & inedible. Over $200 with tip for 4 diners. Would not go back. Only validate 1 hour of parking.

Sorry, I don't have the answer to that. However, I would recommended going to another Italian restaurant such as Sabrina's instead of this restaurant.
