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 chose 'Cesca because of it's vicinity to the Beacon Theatre and were very pleased with the choice.
The wait staff was excellent. We were running late due to traffic and they did everything they could to expidite our dinners so we would make the show at the Beacon Theatre on time. The food was excellent and if I didn't live so far away, it would be on my list of places to dine more frequently. Will definitely return next time we are in the city and will highly recommend it to my friends and family.

Italian cuisine is a very passionate cuisine that prides itself on cultivating the freshest ingredients to shine through. Our goal at Al Dente is to provide you with that passion and freshness along with excellent, knowledgeable service, from a menu that brings our own unique preparations to some of Italy's classic dishes.

Blending traditional Italian flair with modern elegance, the 225-seat restaurant offer's both indoor and seasonal outdoor seating and a menu filled with tantalizing Italian favorites.
