Foursquare Tips

  • 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
  • The neighborhood Italian restaurant you wish your neighborhood had. Ricotta ravioli is one of the city's top plates of pasta.
  • 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!)
  • Chef Bill Telepan gave us this recommendation for off the beaten track places to eat. Cash only.
  • Order the cheese plate. You'll thank me later.
  • 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.
  • True authentic Italian. Always fresh pasta and cheeses. The tiramisu (made daily by the owner) with dark chocolate chips is a must try. Cash only
  • seriously, everything is good here.
  • Theres a secret list of here. When you arrive, press in foursquare to unlock it.
  • Decent prices but the food is overhyped and the service is bad.
  • divine vongole pasta- even better with a dash of their red pepper flakes
  • The food is fantastic. The owner is guaranteed to be always awkward and unpleasant. The waiter acts with speed/flare/attention better fitting a Cancun spring break resort or Times Square tourist trap
  • 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.
  • You blew it if you didn't order the vermicelli alla vongole (spaghetti with clams). Ask for the spicy oil.
  • small and crowded. But filled with legitimately tasteful dishes and intimacy.
  • Cheap, tasty, cash only
  • Great little hidden gem on the Upper West Side!
  • Cosy Italian restaurant, Upper West Side gem. Very inexpensive. Cash only. Be prepared to wait ~20 min but the food and atmosphere is worth the wait.
  • Clam pasta with spicy oil. Enough said.
  • homemade pastas, cash only in this intimate hole in the wall. Quattro Stagione pizza is sooo good! The owner smuggles in cheese from Italy monthly, SHHHH, don't tell!
