Pisticci is an Italian place in Morningside Heights that wouldn’t be out of place in one of the more aggressively cutsie neighborhoods like the West Village or Brooklyn Heights.

Come here with some friends or bring your parents the next time they come over to make sure you haven’t flunked out of Columbia.
