We are Siria and Alessandro, two young Italians raised in the hospitality business.
We recently opened Misirizzi on 36 E 4th street.
Misirizzi is the Italian name for the roly poly toy, the toy that always rights itself when pushed over.
We know it's a funny name, but this is what we are.
Our dishes are always the result of the passion in trying new tastes of our great Italian tradition.
Starting from our memories to develop incredible nostalgic dishes.
All the pasta that we serve is home made, as in the best Italian grandmas' tradition.
Come and meet us, enjoy our food, wine or company, we want to make you feel part of our Authentic Italian Family

We had a very nice evening at Misirizzi. The restaurant has two different sections, one very different from the other, but equally welcoming. The food was really good, and the portions were a healthy size. It’s a very warm place, and service was awesome.

We very much enjoyed our dinner. I appreciated our service, especially because we were a table of 8. My only complaint was the noise level. Due to another 12+ person table across from us, it was super loud! We had to scream to talk. I would go back for sure but in hopes of no large parties or perhaps request to sit in the front of the restaurant.

Meatballs were not good and very underwhelmed with the cheese plate. Felt like the ingredients just were not quality.
That said their carbonara from their lunch menu was fantastic.

Calmar stuffed with shrimp and almonds as an appetizer were delicious. In the primi dishes, I had the flat pasta (i forgot the name) with red peppers , mushrooms and spicy sausage , unfortunately, it was so spicy that it took away any taste there could be.
My husband had the black linguini with shrimp and liked it.

Dined here and had a late lunch with my girlfriend. Service was half-asleep, drinks (spritzes) were so-so, but all three plates were prepared poorly. My piadina was cold inside and both mine and my girlfriend’s tasted like train food. No reason to go here with the local Italian alternatives.

Food was not very good. Meatballs were dry and chewy. Calamari was also chewy. My boyfriend’s pasta (forget name) looked like worms, but also the pasta was too dense and not flavored enough. I personally really liked my pasta dish (with lamb, mushrooms, and peppers). But otherwise, not the best food for a total of $160.

Really impressed with the food - all our dishes were excellent! Only shortcoming was the back room got very loud as it filled up, just wish they would put some noise dampening elements in the there as we skedaddled as soon as we were done eating because it got so unpleasant. Highly recommend if you go at an unpopular hour!

I went there because I read reviews about the beautiful ambience and delicious food. However, I didn’t find any. They gave us the table next to the main door. The food was over salty.. they should do better.

Went for Sunday lunch only because it was near the theater. Felt really lucky to have found it - we were early so there were few people. Service person could not have been nicer - met our off the menu requests with a smile and attitude of wanting us to have a good experience. The food was amazing - fresh, well made, well presented, different from most things I've had at other Italian restaurants. Highly recommend.

Our dinner date was on a Monday night, so it seemed they were a bit understaffed. The ambience and interior design were smart and sophisticated with distinctive and engaging touches. The food was very good. I had the shell steak and my wife had a special pasta. We were both impressed with the flavors and preparation of the dishes.

Went in for a friends’ get together/double birthday celebration. Was able to make a reservation last minute. Amazing food but the service was top notch. Our server was kind, quick, and generally outstanding. The ambiance is very home-like. Also I highly recommend the squid ink linguine.

Food was extraordinary, the zucchini soup with prosciutto, the flaky branzino - all so well done. The wine was a good compliment, a Barbera D’alba. For desert, the chocolate cake, yum!

Service was just a good as the food and someone spared no detail when it came to the clever decor, dried flowers against a clean white background, with slate green doors. All senses are engaged here.

As you can tell, we loved it and will be back!

Like this if it was helpful - thanks...

Came here with a friend and ordered the calamari and two pasta entrees. The tortellini with butter and sage was really delicious, but the other pasta we got (had orange, pesto, pistachios) sounded great but was super bland. Drowned it with a ton of cheese and the sage butter sauce from the tortellini but it was a lost cause.

The stuffed calamari was unique. It tasted good but the texture was a bit off-putting.

We are at the bar and the space was cute and quiet. For such a spotty meal it was pretty expensive, but I’d probably go back for the tortellini and the cocktails (they were great!).
