Stayed in Murray Hill for a week and ended up at Bistango three times. Walking about we perused the menus at each restaurant. Bistango's menu was appealing and reasonable so we gave it a short. Lunch was delish and we felt we had a first class meal at a great price. A couple of nights later we couldn't decide what we were in the mood for and decided to go for a sure thing and went back. Again, we were extremely pleased. The owner was there and made a point to stop by and struck up a conversation...not a mandatory appearance, but a geniune interest in what brought us to his restaurant and desire to ensure we were pleased with our meal. Our plans changed the last night in town and we ended up taking a local to Bistango with us. She'd never been there and was thrilled with the find. The owner recognized us the minute we walked in the door. Food fantastic. Service attentive. The calamari is perfection! This place would be a gold mine in our hometown. Do not hesitate to dine at Bistango!!
