Where to Eat in Staten Island: The Best Restaurants and Bars

April 14, 2018 Agatha Simes

The most suburban of the five boroughs, Staten Island is often neglected as a tourist destination. Take a ride from Manhattan on the Staten Island Ferry and get some of the best views of New York City for free, then stick around and see what Staten Island has to offer. Check out the Himalayan monastery-style Jacques Marchais Museum of Tibetan Art, or visit Historic Richmond Town for a recreation of colonial New York. The beautiful Hamilton Park neighborhood was the setting for "The Godfather."

Giuliana's Restaurant

Reviewed By Johnjlm718 - Staten Island, New York, United States

Very nice atmosphere and very nice service! Food was good we have the price fixed menu for 20 bucks/ person and it was a good value. I most likely should have looked at the regular menu as well but was given the price fixed menu and went with it. We both went home full and thought the food was decent to good.

Bayou

Great food!!

Reviewed By SuzyQu15 - Brooklyn, New York

Bayou never disappoints! They have an excellent bar, and make several different sangrias and hurricanes. The menu is creative, with a southern leaning, and specials change to keep it fresh. Reasonable price fixe menu is offered during the week, an excellent value. Service is terrific, food delicious, prices reasonable and ambiance wonderful. Parking is on the street, but never found it to be a problem. Highly recommend !!

Lee's Tavern

Reviewed By Charles D - New York City, New York

I consider their Pizza to be the best on Staten Island, but more than that you can go and really unwind and have fun with your friends. No pretense, come as you are and eat, drink and enjoy. Always a nice crowd. The servers are efficient and accomodating. Decor is very simple, and adds to the ambiance.

Moved away from Staten Island but had to go back to Royal crown. Their cakes and cookies are the best. Pastries are always fresh. It is so busy but the line moves fast. The staff is friendly and helpful.

Reviewed By SuzieQ044 - New York

What a treat! Every slice of pizza is nostalgic for us.....thinking about the times we visited Denino's over the years. Their pizza hasn't changed one bit and it's as delicious as ever. It's still a fun place, with delicious pizza (lots of varieties).

Beso

Reviewed By carroll91 - Boston, Massachusetts

While it's not the greatest area aesthetically, the restaurant itself offers a cool vibe and delicious food with excellent service. We had a large party and they were very accommodating and personable. The drinks were great and served steadily throughout our time there. The menu(s) had many options and it was tough to choose as it all looked delectable. Would definitely recommend.

Trattoria Romana

Reviewed By architect - Long Island, New York

This restaurant was nicely decorated for the holidays. Service was attentive. The stuffed artichoke was outstanding. The pork chop was delicious and had fine veggies. We also love the pasta with Cacio and Pepe with shrimp. The Italian Cheesecake was excellent. Prices are moderate. Worth the visit.

I have been here before and it has been hit or miss however, my last visit was exceptional! Started with an espresso martini at the bar and it was absolutely perfect! Ordered many apps and zero complaints. My main dish was skirt steak with chimichurri and it was amazing! Can’t wait to visit again!

Patrizia's of Staten Island

Reviewed By C S - Brooklyn, New York

Recently had dinner there with about 30 people. In a word, outstanding. That applies to everything - the staff, the service, and did I say food? Wonderful experience. The place was packed and everything was just perfect. I look forward to returning.
