The food was excellent, service was exceptional, and the prices were reasonable. The location was exactly what I imagined an Italian restaurant would look like in NYC, and was very close to the High Line. It was a reasonably short, very pleasant, walk from the Javitis Convention Center. I would highly recommend eating there.

This Italian restaurant is very good, not expensive and the terrace on the back is a gem! The food was excellent and the service as well.

Took my employees there for lunch. Food was great and very reasonably priced. The staff was attentive without being pushy.

Cozy little place on 10th ave where there is a dearth of restaurants - never mind good restaurants. Bitter cold night so with guests opening the door the front dining area was cold but the food was hot and good. Caesar salad - good. Ravioli del giorno was special of the day - zucchini and ricotta, great sauce, homemade ravs.... More

Love the festive tented back patio! Love the Italian fare, friendly and speedy service -- and especially love the prices! You don't have to spend $30+ on an entree at this cozy neighborhood find within steps of the High Line. Hearty Chicken Milanese on a bed of arugula was under $15! The salad of Grilled Shrimp with Hearts of Palm... More

A favorite with friends in Chelsea, Pepe Giallo offers tasty dishes, friendly service, and reasonable prices. We had burrata and grilled calamari with tomato and olive sauce as appetizers, and chicken and cod main courses. Pasta dishes on nearby tables looked very tempting. We had no room for desert, but perhaps will skip appetizers to be able to try one... More

We were in town for an extended week-end, booked around the college basketball tournament at MSG, and were staying in Chelsea. Friends of ours from NJ came to join us one night and had found "Pepe Giallo" on-line while searching for such a place. All 4 of us were really glad they'd 'done their homework'!

We found this fabulous little bohemian Italian restaurant, for a late lunch, by chance while exploring the highline! The food, service and setting were all amazing! We had the meatballs with the homemade penne along with an order of chicken Milanese. Both were so delicious and for the US actual portion sizes that don't scare those of us from the... More

My girlfriend and I were looking for a good Italian spot without having to go too far from the apartment we were staying in in Chelsea. The place is small and busy, but there is a GORGEOUS garden terrace on the back. We didn't end up sitting there but I saw it when I went to the bathroom, very cool.... More

This is my go to place for meeting artist friends in Chelsea after openings or studio visits. Quaint, good food, inexpensive, just a wonderful local flavor place that provides you an experience that is not tourist crap. I have been there 3 times now in three visits to the city! Is it the best restaurant in the city??? I doubt... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighbourhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighbourhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighbourhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
