Sistina

OPENED468 DAYS AGO

Sistina has been amongst the most highly-rated Italian restaurants in New York for over 30 years.

Now, it’s one of the best new restaurants in upper Manhattan.

Sistina is mixing things up, moving from their Second Avenue location to 24 East 81st Street, putting their new home on the doorstep of Central Park.

The location isn’t the only thing that is changing. Head Chef and Owner, Giuseppe Bruno has created a more approachable restaurant – but Sistina isn’t letting go of the seasonal flair that has helped create their reputation.

Highlights include Italian favorites such as burrata and blood orange (served with radicchio, mixed greens, hazelnuts, and capers in a lemon vinaigrette) and veal tortellini (with black truffle and veal jus). Don’t miss the red snapper (served with parsnips, clams and parsley sauce). The new menu is a mix of classic Italian cooking with innovative flavors, and with so much choice, you will want to go more than once.

The new Sistina also features a late night bar menu serving charcuterie, cheese and Italian bar bites. Wine lovers will not be disappointed with Bruno’s wine collection, housing some 80,000 bottles. Sommelier Renzo Rapacioli is on hand to help choose from the vast collection.

Set in an elegant townhouse, the new space at Sistina is a mix of the old and new – think traditional furnishings with modern touches, including a beautiful mirrored glass bar. The winter garden completes the restaurant and is by far the most beautiful place to relax and the glass ceiling and walls provide a breathtaking view of the city.

Sistina have certainly modernized their offering, and the new menu and location are more approachable, but they haven’t lost the opulence that has kept them at the top of their game for 30 years.

Upper Manhattan’s latest restaurant openings also include Motorino and Avra Madison.
