    Patricia's is a good Italian restaurant if you're in the neighborhood. It's not worth a special trip, but the food is good, the people are friendly and the prices are reasonable. There's a wide range on the menu, so you can have a full dinner or a pizza or sandwich. There's something to please everyone.

    Fresh food, nice service, excellent Italian standbys and nice space make Patricia's a really good restaurant to put on your list. There are no tricks or pomp. Everything is basic, fresh and delicious. Our one complaint is that between the music playing and the general din, it can be a little loud.

    I would return to this place over and over. The exposed brick wall with votive candles embedded in bricks, and covered tables, large floral arrangement in center table, all make for perfect atmosphere. Food was PERFECT - the pizzas best I have had; so was the prosciutto with burrata. The waiter was excellent - gave us time and did not rush things. We were a party of 6 and had a great bottle of wine, beers for 2 of us, and enjoyed a leisurely late lunch/early dinner. Was the perfect choice to celebrate our daughter's graduation. I can't wait to go back.

    We go to the NY Botanical Gardens often and like to go out for dinner afterwards. Patricia's was a great find after our few meals on Arthur Avenue which we felt too touristy etc. Patricia's has very friendly service and very good food which is always consistent. Highly recommend the scallops!

    Food was delicious. We were a party if 6 and 3 had a Daily Special that was a hit! Portions were large. Food was delivered quickly. My one complaint would be the service. When we arrived the place was empty- only one table of 2- yet it took a long time for our drink order to be placed and bread set on the table. During the meal out server never returned to the table. Glasses were emptied but we were never asked if we wanted another. The table was cleared without asking if we were through with eating. Nothing tragic, but annoying. I would, however, return because the food was great.

    Family of 7, mom and dad, son, girlfriend, daughter, son in law, and grandma had a wonderful Easter Sunday lunch right after Sunday mass. The service was friendly and very profesional. The food was delicious. Really excellent portions. Lots of take home for next day lunch. Excellent recommendation Sangria. Planning to go back very soon. OpenTable made it very easy when we need to add two more people to our reservation.

    Top to bottom we could not have been happier with our experience. Our waiter was attentive and eager to help in any way her could. The food was exceptional. We had 4 dishes and actually argued over whose was the best. It's not a quiet place, in fact it is loud... but that only adds to the charm- Italian food was meant to be enjoyed this way.

    We went to the New York Botanical Gardens and headed to Patricia's afterwards. It was a pleasure. The atmosphere was funky and fun--great chandeliers, brick walls, lively atmosphere. Lots of families were there, but it was also romantic in an odd way. The service was good, and the food was excellent. The bread and olive oil with garlic bits was fantastic. I had an artichoke with breadcrumbs and my husband had the pear salad, which were both delicious. For the main dish I had their handmade spaghetti prepared with a puttanesca sauce (it was called something else) which was wonderful, and my husband loved his veal osso bucco. I can't wait to return.

    Dined on 4/4/2014
    Beet and fennel salads were the best but the special salmon ordered by two at our table was not great and they used salmon steaks instead of filet so it was not tender and the sauce was just weird. The whole branzino was not what I expected as the skin was mushy and not crisp as most restaurants serve it. Would not order either again.

    I called the restaurant immediately after making my reservation on line with OpenTable. (It was the first time I used the sight) the man I spoke to said it was ok. I called again later that evening to confirm my reservation; I spoke with three different people only to have them tell me I had NO reservation. This was very frustrating the holding on line and transferring from one person to another. It felt like ‘the left hand did not know what the right hand is doing’. However, I must say that we waiting only a few minutes to be seated

    Forget about Arthur Avenue. Patricia's has it all. My husband's chicken scarpariello on the bone was delicious. My chicken francese was light and flavorful. We started the meal with pizza for the appetizer because we are freaks for good pizza and this did not disappoint. The crust was perfect, thin and crisp. The tomato sauce was fresh and light. The fresh mozzarella was just that, fresh. We will definitely be back and will bring friends. Hot sfogliatelle for desert and my evening was complete. The owner of Patricia's was on site and he made us feel as if we were regulars.

    I booked this reservation through Opentable as I was looking for a restaurant near Einstein Med School as my son is a new student there. We were a party of 5 and were seated immediately when we arrived. The meal and the service were exceptional. We are from Boston and really enjoy the North End Italian restaurants, Patricia's ranks right up there with the best. Our waiter Pascal was terrific and we also met the owner who was incredibly gracious. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants a great meal with great service.
