Sistina, one of the most highly rated Italian restaurants in New York city, has been impressing its sophisticated cliente for 33 years. The attention to detail at Sistina, both in food and service is unsurpassed on the East Side of Manhattan: the restaurant’s inspired cuisine is matched with an outstanding wine list, impeccable service and attractive decor. After spending 33 years on Second Avenue, Sistina has relocated to 24 E. 81st Street, only steps from the Metropolitan Museum of Art on the Upper East Side. Guests will enter and be greeted by a long, chic bar that leads to a grand dining room surrounded by original wooden walls. The Winter Garden, which houses a glass ceiling and wall of windows provides guests with a look into neighboring gardens and the city sky.
Sistina is the winner of the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence and was voted “Restaurant of the Year, 2002” by the New Yorker magazine.
Host/Owner/Chef Giuseppe Bruno, the Zagat Survey’s “Host of the Year,” is responsible for every aspect of his restaurant from greeting his devoted patrons, to preparing special meals and dishes upon request.
