Pisticci is a warm, welcoming Italian eatery which is located within Columbia University 's hinterland. Needless to say, this charming restaurantwhich is adorned with exposed brick walls, a trompe-l'oeil library in its bar area and constantly changing art installationsis popular with both the students and faculty of the University. The menu at Pisticci offers the restaurant's interpretations of classic Italian fare and serves up delectable gems like the Roasted Garlic Bread, the Tiger Shrimp Over Tuscan Beans, and the Maltagliati Pasta With Ricotta, Spinach And Lamb, followed by a delicious Tiramisu. The restaurant promotes up-and-coming artists by displaying their artwork on its walls, and it also hosts live jazz music performances that feature local musicians periodically.
Very cozy and friendly place with great food. One of the best Italian food I've ever had outside Italy. Their spaghetti pasta (only $6.50 for single portion) reminded me of the spaghetti I had in Florence. Fettuccine with wild mushroom ($11.50) and truffle oil ($2.50 extra) is eye-rolling good. Their tiramisu is equally great. Live jazz on Sunday night!
