A word from House of Lasagna
"...House of Lasagna's warm décor--amber walls and colorful framed poster art--provides a handsome showcase for some of Midtown's most value-packed trattoria dishes. The Lasagna Bolognese, for instance, is $12 and includes a small salad with first-rate bread. Travelers from nearby hotels and neighborhood residents have keep this place hummming..."

Diner Reviews
  • "We didn't have much expectations for the visit but were pleasantly surprised. Good was delicious and fresh. The staff was very attentive and friendly; what one would expect in a local restaurant. Wine and beers offerings were interesting also. We will be back!"

  • "Not a trendy, young, hip, swingin', hot spot. Just an elegant quiet little restaurant with delicious pasta and excellent service. Bravo."

  • "Second time I've been to House of Lasagna and it definitely will not be my last. Although not a wide variety on the menu, this is not disturbing, because what they offer is delicious and fresh. While eating great (very reasonably priced) lasagna, I caught up with a friend I hadn't seen in for several months. We spent over three hours at House of Lasagna and never once was pressured to hurry up and pay our bill. The wait staff are very forthcoming and professional. A very enjoyable experience at House of Lasagna"

  • "Expectations were low, and it was a decent value for what you got. But if your going to name your restaurant the House of Lasagna, then your Lasagna better be really good, and it was just ok."

  • "This small restaurant has the perfect name! Their specialty, their lasagna, was simply delicious! The service was fast, the food was great! "

  • "Party of 6 all ate there for the first time this past Friday for a birthday dinner. The service was excellent and the food was great. We'll be back to this new neighborhood find."

  • "The food is good to very good. The portions are small but the prices are very good. We had to ask for bread at the table which is unusual in an Italian restaurant. Overall, ok."

  • "Very romantic. My girlfriend & I loved the food. The wine was great. The service was exceptional."

  • "Well this is a quirky little place. It's quite busy, but the service is very efficient. They move people in and out, but I never felt pressured to leave. The prices are strikingly reasonable...my Lasagna Bolognese was about $12 and I think my wine was $7. I would judge the food to very good, maybe even excellent in relation to the price. A small salad is included, which was unexpected but welcomed, and actually the perfect size. I noticed that regulars immediately asked to be seated upstairs because it is quieter so that is something I might ask for on my return. There were also Italian tourists on either side of my table, which I took to be a good sign! This is an unpretentious gem if you find yourself in the Grand Central area."

  • "It is truly a neighborhood gem! Food is good and not expensive."
    Dined on 1/31/2014
  • "We like to go here because it has a neighborhood feel always lots of regulars. There are $5.00 martinies. My husband had the chicken parm which he loved but the portion was so large, he took half home. Salad is included with the dinner. It could be improved upon. The lady sitting next to us was unhappy with the bread but we were satisfied. Service is timely but not necessarily friendly."

  • "Food is good and decently priced. We prefer eating upstairs where there is more room and we can get a seat near the large window overlooking the street. However, this space is closed on Mondays. Service is okay but there are a few strange problems: one of our group requested a gin and tonic pre-dinner and was told the restaurant didn't stock tonic water(?). Good pasta dishes and many varieties of lasagna. We appreciate that the restaurant is quiet enough to hear each other which has become impossible in many places."
    Dined on 1/20/2014
  • "Nothing special here. Lot's of ready-made baked pastas that get heated up with some fresh sauce applied. Menu is limited, wine list is limited, but the food was satisfactory. Good for a late night meal."

  • "I selected this location knowing I was heading into the city with my three young boys and wife. Being that they are under ten I had to find a location that was kid friendly yet not a chain. We seleced this location because of their name, my kids love Lasangna. Its a small non-assuming restaurant, the waiters were extremly friendly and very helpful. The food was fantastic and the kids loved the house lasangna. Price was very good as well. I would return to this little place!"

  • "We really enjoyed our meal - excellent, attentive service, polite staff and very tasty food - the bruschetta was a little on the plain side but the mushrooms appetizer classic lasagna and eggplant parmesan were excellent. Check it out!"

  • "Great edited menu, nice wine list. Very reasonably priced for wonderful food. The upstairs room has a nice street view as well."

  • "I had 14 people in the group on a December evening after seeing the Rockefeller Center tree. Found Fagiolini in a web search and decided to give it a shot based on the other reviews. It was perfect for the group with a big enough menu for folks to get a variety of items and to share some with others. The location is near Grand Central but has a neighborhood feel to it. We were given a nice table upstairs and pretty much had that level to ourselves for most of the time. Service was excellent and I would have no problem recommending this place to friends and family. We all enjoyed it very much."

  • "Wish the lasagna portions were a little bigger, but the taste is excellent, selectdion good and its a very fast in/out, reasonably priced lunch."

  • "Microwave Lasagna -- barely edible. But a good old-fashioned checkered table cloth space. So much potential. Too bad the food was so AWFUL."
    Dined on 5/20/2013
  • "Only went to Fagiolini because it was convenient. But lunch was amazing. In New York, near Grand Central, a very good lasagna for $8.50, a side salad for $2.00, and a good glass of Montepulciano for $7.50? And good, friendly service? Hard to beat. I'll be back."
    Dined on 5/17/2013
  • "The menu is very small. It's not that the food was bad, it just wasn't restaurant quality. I have made better pasta, lasagna and sauce in my own kitchen. I wouldn't go back or recommend it to any one."
    Dined on 5/10/2013
  • "Very bad experience. Poor service and very poor food quality. An absolute failure. We were ten people and all of them share this point of view."

  • "Just down the street from the hotel we were at is this small treasure of a restaurant. We tried three different lasagnas and each were delicious. Portions just the right size and reasonably priced. Perfect spot for nice family dinner."

  • "They accommodated my group of 20 the same day and provided excellent service! I highly recommend them!"

  • "Very quiet which was nice but the food was just okay at best. Eggplant Lasagna was very dry. Penne ala vodka was a little better... The menu was very different from what was online."

  • "Perfectly good Italian restaurant whose specialty is Lasagne! Very good comfort food without the fuss."
    Dined on 2/20/2013
  • "The only highlight is that the food is very cheap. Nothing tasted very good nor was it anywhere near authentic Italian food."
    Dined on 2/18/2013
  • "I wanted to find an inexpensive Italian restaurant near my parent's hotel at 47th and Lexington. This was perfect - the food was delicious, the service was great and it was packed on a Saturday night. Ordering a lasagna dish is a must!"
    Dined on 2/16/2013
  • "had been quite a while since I had been at Fagiolini. New menu and focus; no calimari or seafood option as in the past. With that the food remains quite good and service is good. Enjoyed dinner, no rush and will go back."

  • "This is another neighborhood gem. The food was delicious. We had the spaghetti and meatballs and the chicken cacciatore-both wonderful. A lovely evening!!"

  • "Service was very good; food not as good as it has been in the past. Pasta and Lasagna was not as tasty as it had been in prior visits."

  • "The food was good at this midtown place but the service was a little slow. We kind of felt ignored and had to flag someone down just to get the check and pay."

  • "We made reservations for a Thanksgiving Dinner as we were in town from California. It was for a party of 13. Upon making reservations, I asked the restaurant to send me the memo.I was sent over the menu, but when my party and I arrived at the restaurant, I noticed what was being served was not exactly what I had received in my email from the restaurant. When I asked the waiter about the discrepency, he indicated he did not anything about that and could not be responsible for what was sent to me and that it looked like last years. Long story short, the original menu emailed to me included different desserts and coffee, tea, and expresso was included. If we wanted coffee, tea, or expresso, it was extra $$."

  • "Service and food were wonderful and at an affordable price. We had Thanksgiving Dinner there after the parade, arriving two hours early for our reservation and they were very gracious."
