An original pioneer of the casual upscale dining scene on the Upper West Side since 2003. Chef Craig Wallens’ contemporary farm-to-table Italian-American cuisine ‘explodes with flavor and freshness’. ‘Cesca features hand crafted pastas, wood-burning oven, artisanal cocktails and an Award Winning wine-list, all complementing this warm rustic environment<br />

"We celebrated a birthday here. Very attractive place.
Food was so uneven. Calamari was like shoe leather. Meat and cheese plate was disappointing and small. Fried mushroom thing was pretty good.
Dinner was wildly uneven. One swordfish was good. One was dry and tasteless after it was ordered "moist". Duck was terrible for one guest and ok for another. Pasta bolognese style was good. Other pasta ravioli was "meh". Only raves were french fries and brussels veg. And these were all a la carte. Who serves a piece of $29 fish on an empty plate?? UGH.
No one came to ask how the food was. Waitress disappeared and replaced by someone else.
Sorry, we will not return. What happened to this place??

At Bottino, Danny Emerman and Alessandro Prosperi offer classic and eclectic Tuscan Italian cooking and a boutique wine selection in a striking mid-century modern decor. The beautiful patio and garden is the center piece of the restaurant. Steps from the vibrant West Chelsea Gallery Scene, Bottino has been an art world dining institution since 1996. Bottino is the spot for lunch or cocktails after the galleries, or an intimate dinner with friends and family.<br /><br />Private rooms available for special events.

"We had a very nice midweek dinner @Bottino. The bartender was great and our waitress was also very nice. The food is very good and I recommend the Tuna entree. The lasagna was also delicious. They have a charming outdoor garden but it was too humid out for us so we sat inside under a large skylight. A very enjoyable dinner!"
