    Sometimes one settles for decent food when dining before or after theater. Da Tommaso offers wonderful Italian food in the Carnegie Hall/Studio 54 neighborhood.

    Went here for a pre-dinner show with parents visiting from out of town, but it was a new experience for all of us, and we were all very impressed. Being a hard-to-satisfy Italian myself, everything I ordered tasted delicious and authentic. I started with the lentil soup, which I am very fussy about, and it was outrageously good, followed by a chicken rollatini special which surpassed all expectations. Others had the pasta Amatriciana and Bolognese, all were equally good. The staff was attentive, friendly, and very professional. We all agreed that we would want to return in the future.

    My friend and I enjoyed our meal very much. Service was good and was very efficient. The food was delicious. The ambience was traditional Italian and very pleasant. We had thought there would be a prix fixe pre-theatre menu, but there was not. Menu is quite varied and offers dishes at various price levels. We would definitely go back for a pre-theatre dinner.

    The decor is outdated, and it seems like they are trying to be fancier than they are. The service was attentive but a little pushy. The host and waiter both asked what we wanted to drink before we were given a wine list, and when we asked for one, the waiter demanded to know whether we wanted a bottle or glasses of wine. We weren't sure yet; we wanted to see the list! He then tried to get my boyfriend to order a different special than he wanted, and encouraged us to add-on appetizers and salads. I felt like I said "no thanks" about 10 times. The entrees were pretty good though, despite the bread on the table being a little dry/stale.

    This restaurant is a wonderful find. Went there on a Monday evening with several friends. We were warmly welcomed and the good vibes never faltered. The waiter was extremely helpful and the food--lasagna special for two of us and the seafood pasta for the other two-was delicious. We were given ample time to enjoy ourselves and never felt rushed. We will be sure to return.

    Was a little hesitant from its appearance from across the street as it looks like it's part of a strip mall. Once we tasted the food, however, all doubts were gone. Appetizers were excellent. Salads were good and my wife's dinner wa the bet salmon she had in a long time. My dinner was chicken piccatta which was very good although not outstanding. The waiter was execellent, very attentive and helpful with suggestions. The only thing in found disappointing for an Italian restaurant was that the bread before the meal was rather ordinary, not warm and no dipping sauces. On the other hand, I ate less of it and had the room to finish my meal.

    I reserved dinner here for myself and girlfriend hoping to be blown away by the food and ambiance. While both were good I left longing for more. I'm not sure if it's because the portions weren't as big as I expected or maybe it was because the food was just good and didn't knock me off of my socks. I can definitely say that the food tasted like authentic Italian which was definitely a plus.

    We had dinner at Da Tommaso on 5/1 before seeing Wicked. My wife's girlfriend had recommended it to us that's how we found it. We had a 6pm reservation and were seated right away when we got there a little early. Our waiter was a very nice guy and was also very knowledgable about the food. He recommended the avocado salad and the stuff mushrooms which we both enjoyed. We both ordered a special of the evening not off the menu. I had a very good chicken dish and my wife had the stuffed pork chop. The entrees were both were very good as was the service and we would definitely go back if we were in that area on the city again.

    We were referred to Da Tomasso by a friend who worked at the comedy club around the corner. Our waiter was so attentive and knew a large amount of specials by heart. One of us had the pork which I belie was a special and it was excellent. One of us had the ravioli which was a special and was also fabulous. Had a great bottle of wine with dinner as well. Small place but what a find.

    The restaurant is a perfectly adequate spot for a solid if not amazing Italian dinner, particularly good for pre theatre eating. The prices are quite reasonable. They are always very busy, which speaks well of them. The service on our last visit was less attentive and slower than on our first visit and the wait staff can express opinions not actually requested. I would recommend it for a casual NYC meal

    My out-of-town friend and I decided to go to Da Tommaso after reading some reviews. We should have paid more attention to the negative ones. The food was both mediocre (mine) and truly inedible (my friend's). I had the rigatoni Amatriciana which wasn't bad, but my friend had the fussili with spinach, prosciutto, & parmesan cheese. She took two bites and left the rest....that's how bad it was. Service was good and our waiter delightful. But...that didn't make up for the poor food. Please don't make the mistake we did....stay away.

    I've been coming here for over two decades and have sent my family and friends here every chance I get. I absolutely love Da Tommaso! The food is consistently excellent, prices more than reasonable for the neighborhood, and the service is outstanding. My wife and I arrived over a half hour late for our reservation due to traffic coming in from NJ, and we were still seated promptly. When I told the waiter we were now in a rush to get to our show, he said "no problem" and the food was prepared (perfectly!) in a flash. the check hit the table the minute I said we were finished, and we made the curtain with time to spare! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
