Ci Siamo

Written by

You might often find yourself around Penn Station for commuting or sports torture needs. (The Knicks may actually be good when you read this, but chances are they’re not.) If so, you should find this upscale Italian restaurant from Union Square Hospitality Group useful.

Ci Siamo in Manhattan West (near Hudson Yards) has starters and pastas that will make you consider ignoring the rest of the menu. We recommend you temporarily suspend any no-carb program you may have joined and order the pizza bianca with anchovies, peppery gnocco fritto stuffed with goat gouda, and the torta with plenty of caramelized onions and pecorino cheese baked into a rich and crumbly crust. (Get this torta as soon as you sit down.) Don’t miss the cavatelli with little chunks of lobster in a thin chili sauce, and be sure to get the topino with mint pesto that might prompt you to think: “Wow, that’s a pretty dish” and “When’s the last time I thought that?”

The expansive dining room has a live-fire cooking station in the rear, and the whole space looks like it could be in a modern Italian hotel. Portions here are generous — so share a chocolate budino with that friend of yours who’s about to miss another train.

You'll need a better browser for that!
