West Village Italian restaurant Canto is set to open a sister location 2014 Broadway at 69th Street this June, next door to Zizi Wine Bar (thanks to Instagram user @gambrelle_ for the tip). The vacant space was previously home to Sapphire Indian Cuisine.

Canto UWS describes themselves on social media as “all about delicious Italian eats & curated cocktails.” If the new menu resembles that of the original West Village location, Upper West Siders can expect classic small plates, salads, pasta dishes, charcuterie, a variety of traditional desserts such as tiramisu, and a plethora of wine and cocktail options. According to Canto’s website, they also offer private events and catering services.

For a long time, the only signs of life in the space were the black window signs with Canto’s logo and a promising “Coming Spring 2024” message. Recently, though, the UWS restaurant has been a hive of activity during the day, with workers coming in and out as they prepare the interior for the forthcoming opening. The space has been repainted white with a black awning, and a May 20 Instagram announcement confirmed the opening would be happening in June. A later post on May 27 gave a sneak peek of the interior under construction, with high arched ceilings and a tiled bar.

Canto’s press team tells ILTUWS an official opening date will be announced soon. We’ll update this post once we have more info.
