Service with Significant Environmental Footprint
Pisticci Restaurant is a bustling Italian trattoria cooking creative, homespun dishes served in a lively, entertaining space. Using a few fresh ingredients grown organically on their own farm, Pisticci’s food is inspired by Southern Italian home cooking. The staff here is warm and welcoming. There are no white tablecloths or uniforms at Pisticci, just real people serving fresh, honest, home cooked food in a space where everyone is welcome. Growing their own vegetables is only part of the Pisticci farm story. Offcuts, stems, and other kitchen scraps are composted behind the restaurant, creating a soil amendment for the farm, allowing Pisticci to close the loop. While this practice is nothing new, doing it in a city is. And doing it at Pisticci's price point, makes it unique. Pisticci is committed to being a low-waste, energy efficient, environmentally responsible restaurant. Each year they purchase carbon offsets for all of their carbon output, allowing them to be a carbon neutral restaurant – the first in NYC. Beyond serving great food, Pisticci’s work with their community, local schools and non-profits charities, has made them an integral part of the Morningside Heights neighborhood.
