About Bistango

Since 1988, Bistango has been one of the best kept secrets on Manhattan's eastside. Bistango’s reputation for providing appetizing Italian fare in a casual atmosphere has made it a reliable neighborhood staple.

Yet, Bistango is more than a local favorite. Patrons visit from all over the country and the world for the its well-known gracious hospitality.

Two Locations, plus…

While Bistango’s original Kips Bay location continues to serve the 'old' neighborhood, Bistango has expanded to the Upper East Side (May 2014).

Annouced this month, Bistango will open an additional location in The Kimberly Hotel, in midtown, at the end of August 2014.


Uptown or downtown, Bistango, continues to serve its customers' evolving attitude to living a healthy lifestyle, while attending to their dietary requirements.
