Krescendo is the restaurant with the RED facade... not the RED ROOF!!!!


I don't think that Jay ate here. He doesn't have the common courtesy to learn how to spell the items on the menu. Maybe he just looked at the website and decided to write a review. Shame on you for being so spiteful and, I agree with Andy - very mean spirited. I have, on the other hand eaten here on several occasions and the food does not disappoint.


Mr Cheshes had made me more of a cynic when it comes to reviews... The food at Krescendo is on par with any upscal Manhattan eatery. There is an embarrassment of choices when you are handed the menu. We decided to sit at the bar because the place was packed (and honestly I was starving). This is a place where you order your food, then look to see what the person next to you is eating and think "I should have gotten that", your first bite into the food (that I ordered) is to die for (and I hate coining phrases that are so overdone!) We ordered the meatballs and I have to say that THERE IS someone who makes meatballs better that grandma... then we had the pasta and bolognese - you could tell that the pasta is fresh. I asked for some bread to scoop up the last bit of bolognese and an perfect little ball of happiness covered in olive oil and sea salt is brought to me. I was too full to have dessert, but you only live once, so we got the tartufo. Jay Cheshes - do yourself a favor and stop reviewing food. You are an embarrassment to real critics.


I have been to Krescendo several times, only to try everything on the menu. I think that you have to go into a restaurant with an open mind. Each pie has a uniquw flavor and if you are accoustomed to a regualr Margherita )which you can get here) Then your best bet is to go to any ole pizza joint... but if you are looking for complexity in food and flavor combinations that you would not think of combining yourself then you must go here. I reluctantly tried the Clam Pie, and quickly decided that the Flower Power is now my second favorite. I am not sure what this reviewer what expecting - but on any given night this place is packed. My boss is looking to have a private party here... hoping that they will close the place for us. Make your own decision - and taste the food for yourself. You will not be disappointed


I'm not sure where this guy ate. We had dinner at Krescendo last night and every bite was amazing. We started with the burrata and crustini appetizer, which had both steller flavors and great texture. We also has one of the pasta dishes and the meatball pizza. Both were perfect. I've never heard of this guy Jay Cheshes before, but I don't think I'll take my lead from him on where to eat.
