Have a res at Crispo this weekend - What should I order?

  1. Definitely the carbonara and the veal dishes are really good as well. For apps....stuffed sage leaves and rice balls...and their buffalo mozz is the best I've had in a restaurant.

    Don't know how many people you are, but ask for the semi private room up front if you are 5 or more...or one of the back rooms. The front room to me is very loud and way too cramped.

    1. appetizers: caponata, roasted califlower, artichokes.
      pasta: carbonara or amatriciana. specials tend to be good, also.

      1. The bone marrow as an appetizer. Also, if you can handle spice get the stuffed peppers.

          1. I thought Crispo closed. Did it reopen at a new location. That's fantastic if it did. I think my husband likes a lamb dish there. Possibly lamb shank.
