    Now that you're gone..

    We used to love 'Cesca. Now I don't want to be too harsh, but when we dined has gone & opened her own restaurant in Brooklyn, but there were some other subtle changes we noticed. The front door staff were less aware of things, the restrooms were a little sloppy, and the elimination of some favorite dishes were more prominent. No more stromboli, no more Cuban panini, no pork shank (we were told it has become a special)....the parm cheese fritters were overcooked and tasted off, the gemmeli pasta was a bit tough & gluey and the we saw the waiter once, when he took the order...a waitress later brought us our check. No one ever checked with us if we were enjoying our meal (& in the past it wasn't necesary). We now know that Elvis has left the building.

    Left with a warm glow

    Everyone was unusually welcoming here, from the woman at the reception desk to the coatcheck person to the hostess who made us feel like old friends to our very capable waiter. Soups and salads were excellent, main dishes good, desserts absolutely to die for, and the coffee (even the decaf) remarkable (a rich, espresso-type blend). On the way out, even those waitpersons and busmen who hadn't served us smiled and said "good night" as we passed them. We're ready to go back anytime. (And I might just skip right to the last part and simply gorge myself on a vast array of desserts!)

    If you are cold - it's your fault

    With it crawling closer and closer towards the coldest part of the year one would think a restaurant would be a good place to warm up - but one would be wrong. Cesca has a great decor no doubt about it - but with hostesses too precious to check if one's table is ready (raising a eyebrow to properly put the guest back in their place) and a manager who is more than happy to tell you are the only one cold - you might want to go somewhere for that warm cosy feeling. Even the red wine was cold. The food however was reasonable good so I guess one will have to wait until summer to dare to go back. If you choose to go - bring an extra pashmina and some patience.

    Good Food, expensive-expect slow service

    The food can be excellent - but not all of the dishes. The service is fine, but slow. It's a little shi-shi - a little full of itself - the wine list is good. Value?, don't come here for bargain dining. Overall, it's worth it, especially considering what else is available on the UWS - but move this restaurant to the Lower East Side, and I'd walk right by it without hesitation.

    Already a Happy Memory

    Just got home from a wonderful experience. The food was delicious, the service was helpful (appropriately opinionated when asked), and the atmosphere was cozy and sophosticatedly sexy. We'll be back.

    Poor Service

    We have frequented 'Cesca about once a month for the past 6 months. I am struck by how often we are treated with cavalier service by certain of the waiters and, on one occasion, the barkeep. Though Valenti is indeed a talented chef and his creations are well executed more often than not, I hesitate to go back.

    We went on the sunday eve of memorial day weekend after trying unsuccessfully to get a reservation on a sat eve. First there was no air conditioning...I guess we can say that it wasn't their fault. Then we get a waiter who was unhelpful and just plain rude. He thought he was doing us a favor by waiting on us. The food was just ok. I had the tuna which was not seared and it was soaked in this horseradish sauce, someone else had the pasta special which was ziti with sausage and meatballs for $29!
