    One of My Favorites

    I have tried everything on the menu. Love the pizzas, fish dishes and most of all the fried artichokes. The owner and waiters are courteous. Once the owner stored my suitcase in his car while I ate because I rushed their after a weekend getaway. They age their own cheese and serve it with chestnut honey. Amazing! Great wines, tasy cappucino and smooth gelato make a great meal. My highest recommendations!

    Some good items

    The tagliatelle was excellent, but the gnocchi was bland and the penne was soso. The fried cheese appetizer was interesting though. Would come again to try the pizza. Service was fine, though the place is quite small and cramped.

    Best authentic trattoria style on the upside

    I just read all these poor reviews and can't believe it. Its not the most convenient place. Tight quarters, kind of loud and there's usually a wait. But its worth the wait. Proprietor can always be found on premises and he is always very accommodating. Food is always fresh and very tasty. For the price its a no brainer. My husband is Italian. We eat here all the time. One of his faves.

    I Don't Get It

    I keep reading and hearing amazing things about Celeste. I am beyond confused by the hype. The food was beyond bland. It had zero flavor and to say I was disappointed doesn't even cut it. There are so many delicious italian restaurants in NYC i can't understand why anyone would come here. You can have a better italian dinner experience with a box of barilla pasta and a jar of sauce.

    Poor Service

    The food is fine. It is the arrogance of the owner I can do without. And what's up with the "we cannot sit you until all parties have arrived"? C'mon! I walked out...my time is more valuable than just sitting around waiting for a table glued to the one next to it. Too full of themselves!

    much ado about nothing

    I've lived in NY my entire life and have dined at some of the city's finest restaurants and Celeste offers nothing more than a cheap imitation of authentic Italian food. The food is mediocre , the atmosphere poor and the service worse. With so many other fine restaurants in the city to choose from there's no need to bother with this one.
