Right after seeing Upper West Side, come for a meal. If you are fond of Italian cuisine, come to this restaurant. At Celeste, guests can have tasty shrimp pasta, fried prawns and mussels.

Excellent food.. perfectly cooked. Well balanced. Enjoyable wine selection.
The place has a cozy with a dimly lit vibe to it and a fire oven for your choice of italian made pizza. The food was good but the pizza for sure was even better. Great service and atmosphere. The owner was very social and even gave us a bit of insight and history on where their food and recipes come from. I highly recommend this little romantic hideaway resturant.
I'm a local resident and recently ate here after not dining here for some time. I've also read many of the reviews here and the common theme is: some don't like Carmine's (owner) shtick and seating/wait time could be frustrating. I agree with most of the thematic complaints and would say this: the food is decent, Carmine seems to take pride in the quality of the ingredients and he does stop by your table multiple times throughout the meal to see how the food is, etc. Relative to NYC prices, this place provides good value. I recommend if you can sit down right away and at a table which is comfortable for your party, go for it. If there is a wait and/or your encounter with Carmine upon walking in is anything but pleasant, turn around and walk out as there are plenty of other options in the neighborhood..even on the UWS! If sticking with Italian theme, try Sirenetta or Salumeria Rosi, both within walking distance of Celeste.
