About ‘Cesca

Often cited as best Italian restaurant upper west side – Experience ‘Cesca…continental, comfortable, and world-class. At the heart of the Upper West Side’s transformation into a premiere dining destination, ‘Cesca serves equal portions of elegance and relaxed ambiance. Borrowing from New York Magazine restaurant critic Adam Platt, it is “very fine, though unrelentingly rustic”… an authentic dining experience borne of its founders’ Italian heritage.

The comprehensive dinner and brunch menus richly reflect an Italian heritage. Offering interpretive Southern regional Italian cuisine using the finest, freshest, and primarily local ingredients, you’ll experience dishes the likes of: Tagliatelle Verde Alla Bolognese Housernade Spinach Pasta, Veal & Lamb Ragu; Yellowtail Crudo with pickled cucumber, chili pure, crispy capers; Burrata Cappellacci with pomodorini di campania, basil, garlic; Slow Roasted Half Long Island Duck with smoked bacon, grilled frisee, shitake mushroom, grapes; or fantastic steaks as ‘Cesca is the Upper West Side’s #1 rated Steakhouse (Jan 7, 2013 Eater Readers Name their Top 50 Steakhouses).

Imaginative, authentically Italian menus pair with an expert selection of fine Italian wines to create the complete ‘Cesca experience. Discover your new favorite spot on the Upper West Side… make plans to visit us soon!

Special Events

‘Cesca’s two private dining rooms have already become popular choices for special events. Popular for small group dining. Whether you need a special space for a business meeting and dinner or an intimate setting for a family celebration, we will make the occasion memorable in the true ‘Cesca tradition.


Throughout the restaurant, plush velvet covers the chairs, bar stools, and invitingly-generous circular booths. Custom iron lamps and chandeliers add a dramatic tone, casting a soft light on the stenciled ivory-covered walls.

The bar area offers a welcoming, informal feeling−a roomy lounge with ample seating and a long, granite-topped bar. Relax and enjoy the customized bar menu as you linger over cocktails and a select choice of antipasti.

The path to the dining room leads past the wine room and the open kitchen. Here, the design aesthetic continues, with custom heat lamps, granite counters, and cast-iron details. Upon entering the expansive dining room, there is a strong pull to sink into one of the gorgeous circular booths and pore over the Italian-focused wine list.
