Chef and owner Frank Crispo opened Crispo Restaurant in the heart of Chelsea and the West Village in the summer of 2002. <br /><br />Our 150 seats create a lively, warm and friendly atmosphere where you can enjoy our signature Northern Italian cuisine. <br /><br />We were nominated in 2002 for "Best New Restaurant" by Time Out magazine, and received an award for "Best Spaghetti Carbonara" by New York Magazine in 2004. <br /><br />Food is not our only passion. Our extensive wine list covers the major regions of Italy and several other countries beyond. For enthusiasts, we have a full bar stocked with grappa, amaros, aperitifs and digestifs.<br /><br />Come join us for dinner in our main dining room, or in our outdoor garden space. It remains open year long. With this newest addition to Crispo Restaurant you will truly feel like you are not in New York.

"LOVE LOVE LOVE this place..... inventive menu, great drinks, good for all occasions, whether for romantic intimate dinner for 2 or for large group. Food portion is just right but would be too little for family style if you're with a big group. I would definitely come back again and recommend it to others. Ask to sit in the back room if available for more ambiance!"

Besito (Little Kiss, in English) serves authentic Mexican food and is home to tableside guacamole and the Besito Patron Margarita. Besito serves lunch and dinner every day of the week. Food specialties include classic tortilla soup, tamales with shrimp and chipotle adobo, ceviches made daily, boneless short ribs of beef and enchiladas suizas. We serve over 60 world class tequilas in our Agave Lounge in an atmosphere of old, rustic Mexico and sophistication bringing back memories of your last Mexican vacation!

"Have been here more than once and plan to return. A couple of suggestions though - people who make reservations should not have to "wait" - defeats the purpose of having one in the first place! If you can fix this the next time I come in with a reservation, you will get 5 stars!"
