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. The food is Italian, and there tend to be a lot of vegetable options, maybe because they grow their own stuff at a farm upstate. 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.
