Located in the heart of Chelsea, Crispo is one of NYC's best kept secrets.

"As soon as you step inside Crispo, you're engulfed by dark brick, polished wood, wrought iron, and the smell of the kind of comforting regional-Italian food you can't help but gorge yourself on, including the tastiest spaghetti carbonara in New York City." - Esquire Magazine  

Come and join us for dinner where we treat every customer just like we would treat our own mother. Seating is available in our main dining room, our year round garden area and in the warmer temperatures our front patio.

Frequently asked questions


General Dining

  1. Do you take reservations? Yes we do! You can call us directly at the restaurant or make them through the Resy app. Please be advised the largest party taken through Resy is 5. For larger groups, please call the restaurant.

  2. Do you serve anything besides pasta? Of course! We offer daily meat and seafood specials according to our daily fresh deliveries. Please call the restaurant for details.

  3. I would like to sit in the garden, can this be guaranteed? Due to its high demand, the garden is seated on a first come, first serve basis. We can certainly make a note of your preference for garden seating but it will not be guaranteed.

  4. Do you have vegetarian options? Yes we do and since our food is made fresh to order, a lot of dishes can be accommodated to suit your dietary needs.

  5. Do you have gluten free options? We offer gluten free pasta to substitute a majority of our pasta dishes. Also, most of the menu can be accommodated for you. Please see your server for guidance.

  7. Can I bring my own cake to the restaurant? Cupcakes? Certainly! There is a plating fee of $3.50 per person for anything brought from outside the restaurant.

  8. Can I bring decorations or party favors? You are more than welcome to bring in decorations as long as they are tasteful and not obtrusive.

  9. Do you have a corkage fee? We do not have one as we actually do not allow any bottles to be brought from the outside?

  10. What credit cards do you take? We take Visa, MasterCard and American Express.

  11. Do you deliver? Currently we do not offer any delivery service.

  12. Can I order to take away? Of course! Please make sure to give yourself plenty of time as good food takes time to make!

  13. Do you have televisions? We do not.

  14. Can we split the check or have separate checks? While we cannot provide separate checks for one party, we can split a check up to 2 ways.

  15. Do you cater? Currently we do not offer catering services.

  16. Do you have gift cards? We do not sell gift cards. If you would like to purchase a dinner or items for a guest, please use the secure credit card form below.

Group Dining

  1. Can we rent the entire restaurant? Yes. Please email us with your inquiry. Let us know your budget, expected guest count and the date you are looking for.

  2. Why must we use a price -fixe menu? We require a price -fix menu for large groups because all our dishes are made to order and it would be hard for us to accommodate your party without knowing the order ahead of time. We look forward to providing you and all our other diners the best possible service and this allows for that.

  3. Do you offer beverage packages? We do not offer beverage packages. We do highly suggest that you pre-select wines to help you have some control of cost.

  4. How many credit cards can we use to pay the check? We can accept up to 4 credit cards.

  6. When do I have to confirm my final guest count? You have up to 24 hours prior to the dinner to adjust your final count.

  7. How far in advance can I book my party? We can book a party up to 3 months in advance.

  8. How much time will we have to dine? Each party is given 2 1/2 hours to dine with us.

  9. Can I order wines in advance? Yes and we definitely recommend you doing so.

  10. Do children have to pay full price? Children that are 12 years and older do pay full price on the price - fix. If they are under 12, they may order off the regular menu.

  11. Can I come and see the space? Certainly! Please call and stop by after 4PM for someone to assist you.

  12. Can I hold a specific date? Definitely! Call to get availability and we can hold a reservation for a few days until you finalize your details.

  13. What is the maximum amount of guests that we can have? We can accommodate parties of up to 30 people without buying out the restaurant. Anything else will require a rental charge.
