Homemade pasta and dessert here

Great chicken. The pollo Assut is great. The timballo exquisite. The tortellini forget about it! I want to try the whole menu if I can :) This is the best Italian food I had for a very long time.

this place is really a gem. It has great seafood pasta and awesome dessert. I learn it's made inhouse and that everything is imported. The wine was great and I love the staff and atmosphere. It's perfect for dinner and drinks. I had couple of glass of wine with my friends and stay after dinner the enjoyed the after dinner drinks and calm and breezy atmosphere. Luv this place.

Greatest place in the area

This place came a long way since its beginnings. I've been living in the neighborhood and kept going there quite often and experienced all kinds of treatment from their staff but the food never ever disappointed me. I love their pastas, so light and flavorful! Their Mora Di Gelsi salad, crabcakes and seafood salad are my staples. The best news is that the management changed recently and it made all the difference! Th... view more

Good food - but their prices are higher than shown on their website.

The food was good. The service was just OK. We asked for our pasta to be served after our appetizers. Instead, they brought it at the same time as our appetizers. Be aware that their prices are higher than shown on Menupages and their own website.

After we were seated by the hostess we began looking over the menu and suddenly we were approached by another hostess and asked if we had reservations, as if we were not welcome. At this point the restaurant was maybe 1/3 filled. It took quite a while for a server to come over and take our drink order. During dinner the manager continued to circulate throughout the restaurant hovering uncomfortably over every table. ... view more

Perfect dining experience!

Food was great, portions were perfect (large without excess), wine was good, service was wonderful, and they even brought our group champagne at the end of the meal. The only thing that wasn't great was the area--the restaurant is a little secluded from the busy streets, but it's worth the extra distance. I would definitely come back!

great food

Osteria Gelsi is one of the places that really needs to change the management team. The owner and the chef of the place is always there, I tend to think he is a practical joker, and quite antagonistic to his staff... Therefore, the service is horrible (if anything, I recommend eating at the bar). But if you like great food, you should give it a try, because that is something that makes this spot exceptional. Parpadel... view more

Service and Attitude are Terrible

I?ve never written a review before, but I was so annoyed by the ""tude"" of the owner that I decided to write this review. The problems started when the hostess told me that she couldn?t find my reservation. In fact, not only did we have a reservation, but the hostess had already seated part of my party (although she kept insisting that I was the first to arrive). When the owner came over and discovered her mistak... view more

Overpriced and Overrated

We happened to pass by Osteria Gelsi on a Friday night before seeing a show. There are not a lot of great places to eat on 9th avenue and in the 30s, so Osteria Gelsi was a site for sore eyes. We stepped in and requested a table for 2. We did not have a reservation, so were given a table by the door. After the cold draft became bothersome we asked to move and were seated at a better table. We ordered some wine (... view more

Pretty Good food - depressing neighboorhood - mediocre service

Focused my meal on the pastas & chicken - found the Lasanga to be excellent - though tiresome and overly meaty toward the end. Other pastas were good. Risotto lacked pizzaz. Given its location in this somewhat dilapidated neighborhood, the food was better than expected - but service was less than speedy or attentative. Also saw other customers asked to take inferior tables at 3pm when clearly the restaurant was n... view more
