I go here for special treats, since as a student I can't really afford it, but I really love it. The food is delicious, and it's a great value. The spaghetti is to die for, the salads are lovely, and the tiramisu (which is my favorite dessert) was the best I've had in a long time. Plus, if you go early, there's no problem getting in. I'd go back again and again!

Not worth the trip. The food was okay. Nothing special bit the service definitely needs work. Our server left midway through our meal and we had trouble getting anyone's attention. But they must figure they can get away with crappy service for parties of 6 or more because they add 18% gratuity. If you make a reservation (which we did) its 20%! Its absurd! Why should we be penalized for making a reservation? And the place was empty to boot!

Last night my wife and i went to Pisticci and we had a lovely time. Apparently, Sunday night is the night to go as there is live Jazz performances. Very cool stuff. à Food was very nice. Everything was light= - both my wife and i had fish. I thought the price was fair / comparable with any upper west side restaurant, including tip $75. We each had one drink (coke), appetizer, main course (mine was the special), tea and dessert. Service is neither 5 star treatment or serve/east and leave spot. Imagine being in a jazz bar being serviced by young musicians; it will be quick, but it gives you time to interact with your date. Staff is also knowledgeable with the menu. I tested! Overal Pisticci is a great local restaurant with great ambiance, lovely sunday night music, and good food.

I disagree with what people say about the staff, I go here often, and I have had nothing but great experiences with the wait staff, they understand that you are waiting a while, and try and accommodate as best they can. As soon as you are seated though, you are never rushed, and I could eat that garlic bread with goat cheese all night long. The maltagliati pasta is delicious and decadent treat.

amazing value, especially if you order from the regular menu (as opposed to the daily specials). i don't love the hostess and some of the wait staff, but the delicious food at affordable prices in a cute setting more than make up for this. some favorites: the spaghetti and meatballs, the pasta dish served with truffle oil, any of their soups (housemade), the coconut cake, the iced tea with fruit nectar. i haven't been as thrilled with the meat entrees. i'd say stick to pastas, soups, salads and desserts for a hearty (or light) meal in a neighborhood spot.

the place is cute and charming and tucked away. the food is decent. however, the service ruins all of this. they cannot roll with the flow. we asked a waitress for bread about 5 times, no bread. we asked to squeeze in an extra chair, she looked at us like a deer in the headlights. maybe she was having a bad day? that being said, i have had better waiters & waitresses, but it is very slow & everyone just seems a little confused.

I find it odd that people are saying they had poor service... I've eaten there at least 10 times and have always been nothing but impressed with the service. The people who work there have been there for a while and are always so friendly and down-to-earth. Plus, the food is authentic and they never rush you through your meal. The music is great (chill indie stuff) and the decor is warm and cosy. It's a great spot for us uptown folks who like something close.
