With a dim yellow light emulating from the Crispo sign on 14th street, it is easy to overlook this restaurant amidst the bustling Meatpacking neighborhood.
However, take a chance and step inside this brick walled trattoria and you might find something unexpected – a candlelit eatery serving up quality Italian food.
And it would be remiss of me had I not made mention of the outdoor garden assessible in the back of the restaurant. Take a look around and you’ll soon notice the room pays homage to its meatpacking roots – adorned with old school meat slicers to hooks.
But more importantly – the food. With a menu that is roughly 50 items deep, it is easy for everyone to find something to eat. For the gluten-free? GF pasta is available for all their dishes (at an extra $2.75) and the wait staff is pretty knowledgeable with everything else.
That being said, a sampling of the food:
I know it’s probably hard to believe, but there were even more dishes than that on the table. Iguess that’s what you get when you celebrate 3 birthdays in 1 sitting – or you come from a food loving family like mine.
Pros: Consistent, quality Italian eats with a menu suitable for everyone.
Cons: Our service was terrible but I did get all my GF questions answered
