I have the pleasure of visiting this city each month for a few nights. I stumbled across this place by accident. Wow. Finally, a real pizza! Not an American spin, but an authentic, Italian pizza. Fantastic toppings, just enough cheese, bread on arrival, nice wine! Great value for the offering. Main, desert, sparkling and a wine was $40. Not too bad at all. I will make this a regular on my visits to NYC.

While the service and ambiance was top-notch, the food left a lot to be desired. The complimentary bruschetta was the best part of the meal- the bolognese and marinara sauce had WAY too much garlic and the pizza was mediocre. Bolognese was also served with too little of a slightly strange pasta noodle for the sauce (parpadelle). Quality of food did not justify price.

If you can't find it on the menu, ask Anthony and he'll have it made for you. Great reasonably priced wine list. Fantastic sefood salad; one of the best in the city .

I've come to this resturaunt on a regular basis for over ten years now. When My family is in town visiting, they always want to go here. Out of all the places to eat in NYC, they say they never had a bad meal, and I agree. It's also reasonably priced. It is a wonderful, comfortable dining atmosphere. The menu is simple, but the specials each night are always a great surprise. The lunch special is an incredible bargain. If you plan on going on the weekend, plan ahead and make reservations. The staff is always warm and inviting.

Ditto to all the previous accolades. While the food is great, see below, the unique feature of this neighborhood italian eatery is the way the proprietor, Anthony, makes you feel upon entering -- like you've just arrived home for the holidays -- without all the usual family sturm and drang. So, to the food..... Best bruchetta in town; freshly baked bread with amazing garlic infused oil or creamery herb butter. The eponymous house salad is unique and divine; pasta dishes are uniformly superlative. Moreover, if nothing on the menu piques your interest, just ask and Anthony will have something whipped up that will no doubt curl your tongue. A couple of caveats though.........call ahead and make sure that (1) there is room (it's really a tiny place), and (2) that Anthony is working that evening (while his staff really does try, they do not have the restauranteur gene -- yet, give 'em some time!). For the record...no, I was not paid for this review.

Went here on a Sunday night, the place started to fill up, but the waitstaff was very friendly. We ordered a bottle of Pino Grigio, but she recommended trying the "caraffe" instead, so we did, it was excellent. Got Ceaser salad, and pasta, and said we were going to split it - they brought it out, both already split for us, with no sharing charge. Nice little place on 3rd.

We love Bistango. From the moment you walk in, the manager/owner welcomes you as if you were family. The entire staff carries through in the same manner. Bruschetta is placed on the table as soon as you are comfortably seated, It is delicious. What is also delicious is the bread and the garlic infused olive oil for dipping. It is simply devine. All of the entrees that we have had are wonderful, tasty traditional red sauce italian. Lots to choose from on the wine list and very good quality for a good value. This is a gem in the neighborhood and stands out from the other cookie cutter italian restaurants. Go here - you will not be disappointed.
