    Sad State of Affairs

    When this restaurant first opened, it was a delight to have in the neighborhood. But recently there has been a change of ownership (not disclosed) and there has been a noticeable decline in atmosphere, food quality and price to plate value. And, still no change in the CASH ONLY policy.

    wish there was a 10 rating!

    Our family went there for a 50th birthday party( approx. 22 people )and everyone had the best time! Food was superior and the service outstanding. Some people were not familar with some dishes but they loved them. They served small tasting plates with the most delicious and savory ingredients. By far the best hummus in the world! A trip to the lower east side is certainly worth it. Their fresh baked bread is mouthwatering! Some relatives asked if they would cook for them every and deliver! Petisco is a GOOD THING!

    We order delivery from Petisco and visit the cafe often. Depending on when we wake up sometimes my room mates and I order 3 times at different intervals! The man who answers the phone is just lovely even during their busy brunch he is calm and friendly. I've been in the hospitality industry for many years and I cannot rave more about how nice the staff here is. Happy owners make for happy workers. The food is always fresh and yummy. Thanks Petisco.

    Overpriced and unfriendly

    This place is not what it used to be. When they first opened, the food was amazing, the food was prepared with care, the portions were decent, and they made you feel welcome. Now they are willing to cheat in order to get as much money out of you. I was charged $11 for a mediocre (house) glass of cabernet last night, and was told the wine is not on the menu. This was not $11 glass or the type of service, and unfortunately this policy is very penny wise and dollar stupid. I live in the neighborhood and used to recommend this place to everyone. Now I will never go again, and will make sure to spread the word... unfortunate!!

    Great Lower East Side Find

    Just dined with my family at Cafe Petisco. Everyone enjoyed their dishes. The food was fresh and tasty. The server was very helpful and the restaurant was very reasonably priced. Definitely recommended for a low-key local meal.
