'Cesca Restaurant Review

: Since it opened in 2003, Upper West Siders starved for topnotch Italian have been clamoring for reservations at this cozy-chic spot. Popular dishes, including delicate vegetable fritto misto and pillowy Parmesan fritters, remain on the menu. Continue with pastas and secondi such as salt crusted whole fish for two, steak tagliata and parsley crutsed rack of lamb. Light, enticing desserts include vanilla panna cotta. Look for happy hour and a three-course pre-theater menu for deals.
