Tables very, very close together. Great service, attentive.
Seabass special was very good. Shrimp with asparagus and grape tomatoes only fair. Not much seasoning and shrimp were very small and tasteless.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMTHE "GO TO" RESTAURANTVERY CONSISTENT SPOT....FOOD ALWAYS GREAT AND THE SERVICE IS ACCOMODATING AS WELL!6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMI had a delightful lunch atI had a delightful lunch at Dopo Teatro - Trattoria. I made the selection as to it's close proximity to the theatre. My friend and I were escorted at our request to a table in the back where we could enjoy quiet conversation. The wait staff were super friendly and my individual pizza was delicious. My companion had the salad insalate capresse - the mozzarella was beautiful but it could have used an additional slice of tomato or 2. It was a perfect spot for a light pre theatre lunch and I will be returning.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Fixe Prixe Lunch is a good dealThe fixe prixe lunch is worth every penny spent. I could not believe that I had a glass of wine, a flavorful salad, a nice sized entree and a delicious dessert all for the low price of $19.50. Plus, there was loads of bread that was served hot with plenty of olive oil and butter. My friends and I were so pleasantly surprised. Our meal made our theatre outing even more pleasurable.
We talked about lunch on the ride on the train back to Philly. Hooray.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMThe hostess was so very friendlyThe hostess was so very friendly and welcoming - traditional and tasty Italian fare that was well prepared. A nice before theatre venue with a regular and fixed price menu. Highly recommended.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMShaky Start but a Strong FinishOur dinner got off to a shaky start when we seemed to have a little trouble communicating with the waitstaff. However, after we got our order placed the food was outstanding. This is a great place for a pre-Broadway meal but be sure to let the staff know you are planning to go to a show or they will take their time - much like they do in Italy.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMPre Theatre Dinnera perfect spot for a pre theater dinner and close by most Broadway theaters. Excellent service, good food and a great selection on the 3 course fixed menu.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat mealAd a great meal before theatre. Pasta is house made. The polenta appetizer was very good.

Bartender not too friendly though.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat pre -theater dinnerNot sure what to expect, we made our reservation for 5:30 so we had enough time for 8:00 show. Service was excellent; our meal arrived within 15 minutes of our arrival. The veal Osso bocco was wonderful. Tender and delicious. They also had several vegetarian meals for my husband to select from (which is unusual). Even with the very rich chocolate mousse cake and mixed berry tart for dessert we were finished within the hour. Plenty of time to walk over to the theater. We will definitely be back when visiting the city again.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFoodHave been to this restaurant many times and always order the pasta. It is consistently good.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMbefore theatreThis was our first experience here. Service was great, the pre-theatre dinner was delicious as well as generous and they remembered that I mentioned in the reservation that we were celebrating my husband's birthday. It was a great start to the evening. Would recommend to anyone.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have been to this restaurantWe have been to this restaurant several times and always find the staff and food to be very good. This time we ran into trouble getting into the city. I was with two friends and our train was late. We didn't get to the restaurant until 7:00 and we had a play three blocks away at 7:30. We arrived and told the waiter our predicament and that we were willing to have an appetizer if that is all they could get ready. He suggested a few pasta dishes and had them out in no time. We ate and left and got to t he theatre on time. My friends were quite impressed with the entire operation. And I was thankful.
We won't try that again, but it was nice to know that it was possible. My husband and I have been turned away by other restaurants.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMPre-TheaterThis is a perfect restaurant for pre-theater dining.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMMy girlfriends and I had aMy girlfriends and I had a very nice Pre-Fix lunch, the wait staff was attentive. The restuarant was not busy on a Saturday afternoon, so we were comfortable. The restaurant is small, and the tables are very close, so on a day that it would be crowded, one would not be able to have very private conversations, however it was good for what we wanted... The fixed price was a good price, however there were only two selections for main entree... We would return!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had 11We had eleven people in our party. They were family members from North Carolina and some had never eaten in New York City. After the initial sticker shock, they perused the menu often asking our server - who was excellent by the way - what the dishes were. Several of the men got the Filet Mignon and thought it was the best steak they had ever eaten. Several others of us dined on the various Italian seafood dishes. Everyone agreed that each meal was well-prepared and very tasty. The asparagus was a particular hit - tender and delicious! The only disappointment was the calamari appetizer. It was tough. Also, we were disappointed to discover that the prix fixe menu was not available to parties of 10 or more.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMVery NiceWhile I would avoid the adjectives of excellent, amazing, etc., I will say that the meal we received was very nice and actually exceeded my expectation. I chose the restaurant because it was the only one I could find in that area, on Open Table, with 5:30pm openings for a party of 6. So I wasn't expecting much. However, we arrived a little early and were received warmly. We were seated and the wait staff was prompt in offering us water and taking drink orders. The suggestions we received were very helpful in both appetizers and assistance with the wine list. The food was served at a nice unhurried pace by our friendly server who recognized, without being told, we were in no hurry. However, he remained attentive throughout our meal.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMNever disappointedI have been to this restaurant many times over the years. Food is always great and the service is wonderful. Brought friends from England who were visiting. They thoroughly enjoyed it and made plans to go back again on their own the next evening.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGood after theater restaurantGreat food and wine list. Only down is waiter was terrible...spent more time talking to bartender and on his iphone than with us.. Still highly recommend you try it.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for business lunchHad a recent lunch here - excellent service and reasonable prices. Nice for a business lunch with better than usual food.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a great option eitherAlways a great option either before or after the theater!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMIts a very nice restaurantIts a very nice restaurant ante tha psta is excellent4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent restaurant in theExcellent restaurant in the theatre district, with quality food for a reasonable price, good wine list, and helpful staff.

I would recommend it4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMVery nice! The homemade papperadallVery nice! The homemade papperadalle were delicious!4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMThe atmosphere is nice andThe atmosphere is nice and bright and clean. It's a big place. There's a good size menu, but none of the four of us was bowled over by the food. My husband and I had short ribs with pasta, for instance. There was shredded beef over wide noodles - nothing special. The shrimp in our appetizers and one entree were very small.We waited for a second round of drinks forever. - we finally got hold of another server to find our server. Dessert was so-so as well, and the check was substantial. Probably won't return.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMTry it, you will like it.Apleasant surprise. Authentic Italian cuisine, that is really, very good. Clams Casino and Veal are excellent.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMPre-theater meal. Food wasPre-theater meal. Food was excellent. We had a table I tucked in a corner --somewhat tight. That was the only negative. Would definitely send those going to see a show! Great prices too.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was very good. TheThe food was very good. The mood was great
Dessert was yummy.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was quite possible theThis was quite possible the best meal that I have ever eaten. The gnocchi practically melted in my mouth, and the carbonara was tender and flavorful. Italian is my favorite type of food, and this restaurant is cleanly at the top of my list of favorites. The location is perfect for someone who wants to walk to a Broadway show after their meal, and the food arrived about 10 minutes after we ordered! It's also romantic with the ambiance, and served as a perfect set-up before I proposed to my fiance. I don't think that I will have another trip to New York that doesn't include a dinner at Trattoria Dopo Teatro.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat, as always. ServiceGreat, as always. Service is always great, food is always great. Looks like they changed their menu a little since the last time I was there and the new options are nice to see.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMwhat a wonderful surprise,what a wonderful surprise, right in the middle of all the craziness of the city. we so enjoyed our lunch.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat location, good foodFood was good, service was fast until it was time to get our check them we waited a good 10-15 minutes and there were only 5 tables. They have a "theater menu" which gets out fed and out the door in time for a show. Overall, I would go back.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMAn Authentic NYC Italian RestaurantA really authentic New York Italian restaurant with great food at very reasonable prices for NYC. My daughter said half way through the meal she felt like she was actually dining in Italy which I think pretty much sums it up. Definitely on our list for a return visit the next time we are in NYC.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is a great place to haveThis is a great place to have lunch before an afternoon matinee.

Lunch prix fixe @ $19 including house wine is a steal-- crisp salad, succulent grilled chicken, and generous fruit salad. Half a block away from many Broadway theaters.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, o.k. serviceThe food is great but the service, not so much. We sat at the bar while we waited for the rest of our party of seven to arrive. The bartender stayed at the other end of the bar and looked annoyed when we called her over to order drinks. Every time a new member of our party arrived, we had to call her over. When we decided to be seated with just five present, we were met with some hesitation for seating us even though the restaurant was not busy on this night. When we suggested an empty table that looked ready, we were informed that the table accommodated eight, therefore, it couldn't be made available for us. The food was really tasty but the not-so-great service was noticeable when we had to remind the waiter of foods ordered.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways dependable!Consistently great food.
