    Arguably one of the best, most authentic Italian spots in the city. Chat up the owner while you wait & learn about the solid wine selection. Tagliatelle followed by tiramisu is where it's at.

    The ricotta ravioli is one of the few perfect plates of pasta in the city and the cheese plate is as good as you'll find (smuggled directly in from Italy!)

    This intimate, cash-only Upper West Side eatery doles out pizzas and pasta dishes to those who can handle the long wait for a table. Try out the four-quadrant quattro stagioni pie or the Penne Mo Mo. Leer más

    Celeste doesn’t accept reservations (or credit cards), but it’s worth the wait. Their pizza is the best in the neighborhood; wood-fired, with a crust that’s not too thin. Leer más

    Amazing food. Great ambiance. Stellar staff. I love the family feel and the way everyone who works there treats you like a friend. Definitely have the tiramisu (best I've ever had).

    It's small, it's cozy, it has great food and affordable. What else do you need from a neighborhood restaurant? The go to place for when I have friends from back home coming over. Amazing gnocchi.

    Great for dates, we came for brunch and the French toast was delicious. Skip the eggs. Will definitely be coming back for pizza and pasta

    Super authentic Italian food! The pasta is great, but the pizza is amazing. One of the best sauces I had. The tiramisu is very good and not too sweet. Cash only, so come prepared.

    One of the best Italian restaurants I've had the pleasure to eat. Authentic Italian, the space is small, so you may have to wait, but that wait is totally worth it. The pizza is great!

    Authentic, cozy Italian restaurant. Everything we had was amazing, in particular the veal special, the hand-made pasta, and the napoletana pizza. Great manhattan dining w/out the manhattan prices

    You can't go wrong with any of the pastas- all delicious and made fresh in house! Affordable and friendly- the owner is always there chatting with customers. One of my favorite Italian places in NYC.

    Reasonably priced, high quality, delicious Italian--a gem of a restaurant nestled on a quiet stretch of Amsterdam Avenue. The homemade pasta is perfectly al-dente and the wood fired pizza is divine... Leer más

    This place is great. Delicious food, at least a dozen bottles of wine under 30 dollars and another dozen under 45. Carmine is a character but I love the guy. Get a pizza for app and the tagliatelle.

    The neighborhood Italian restaurant you wish your neighborhood had. Ricotta ravioli is one of the city's top plates of pasta.

    Always full and worth the wait. The food is exquisite and a steal at the price. Try the penne with fresh buffalo mozzarella. Bring some cash as they don't take cards.

    If Tagliatelle Norma is ever on the specials list, stop looking at the menu and order this Immediately. It's the best dish of pasta and sauce I've had since I lived in Italy.

    Celeste is a cash only family-owned Italian restaurant where the pasta is made fresh daily. The chef goes to Italy every month to hand-pick several local and hard-to-come-by cheeses. The recitation of

    This little gem is cash only and there is usually a line, but the inconvenience is well worth it once you bite into your Quattro Stagioni Pizza or Tagliatelle Con Gamberi E Verza.

    Amazing Italian food. No reservations, cash only, slightly surly service, but delicious food. A great neighborhood place and an off-the beaten-path spot for tourists.

    Pasta with clams really good, ask for a bit of the special olive oil for a little kick of spice

    Beautiful little traditional napolitan cantina, with one of the best tomato sauces I've ever had - and that's coming from a hardcore tomato sauce lover.

    You blew it if you didn't order the vermicelli alla vongole (spaghetti with clams). Ask for the spicy oil.

    The Ricotta and spinach ravioli was terrific indeed but it's not very filing as it's quite a small dish. The shrimps & calamari wasn't really tasty and is not recommended. The prices are really good.

    I would say go for the "Super Pizza". The lasagna tastes good but unfortunately not "al dente" which is a downside for me. I will give it another try thanks to its good service

    No frills here, just great food at a good price. Keep an eye out for their pasta specials every night and be sure to bring cash - cards are not accepted.

    If you like being verbally abused by the host you'll like this place. Some people do that and it's funny but this guy is just, not. Food is pretty good, but with so many great choices in New York...

    Celeste is a neighborhood secret. It serves the best pasta and pizza in the neighborhood. The owner makes his own cheese and loves talking about cars especially Audis. What more can you ask for?

    This must be the best italian place in the city, especially given the good prices. Order the desert cheese plate (5, 10, or more!) and see Carmine, the owner, rattle off each cheese's history. Fun!
