  • "Food was unremarkable and overpriced. We went here because of the reviews and it did not even come close to our expectations. I could have made better Italian food at home! Do not bother coming here because there are so many better options in Manhattan!"

  • "Found this gem while doing an internet search of places near the theatre district that had whole wheat pasta. Very friendly greeting and informal ambiance. Had a bit of a scare when the waitress came to tell us whole wheat pasta not always available. For appetizers, the girls both had the porcini salad. I had the Caesar. They loved theirs and mine was good but could have used a bit more dressing, there was some dry lettuce in there. Anyway I had whole wheat penne with bolognese sauce - absolutely delicious. One of my daughters had the same pasta with clam sauce, and my other daughter had the primavera. The food was awesome, and the only small complaint was that the clam sauce was a bit watery. All in all a great find and we will be back!"

  • "Meals was excellent. We ate off the evenng special list for 2 in our party. Chicken with lemon wine sauce was tasty with linguini. Pizza was excellent. Tiramasu was nice light creamy high on espresso...the Italian donuts very super yummy. Not ideal for biz conversation as it was a bit loud"

  • "The food was nice the atmosphere was great but the service was very poor. We had to wait one and a half hours for a main course. Apparently the pizza my wife ordered had been burnt."

  • "Very casual small restaurant/bar with excellent food at moderate prices. Try the Grandma Pizza for a special treat. One large feeds 3-4 people 2 huge slices each! Thin Sicilian crust with fresh crushed roma tomatoes, garlic and basil! Allow 45 min-1 hour for baking. They do serve breakfast too and have a takeout menu as well."

  • "The restaurant was hot as hell on a not so warm night. I am a person who prefers warm, but this was way too much. I did not like drenching in my sweat while eating. Other than the drenching hot hell ambiance, food was good. But we were not really able to enjoy it."

  • "To literally be so close to the tourist flytrap of Broadway & Time Sq you'd expect many places to cut corners - not here. They successfully deliver a welcoming and friendly vibe, whilst delivering excellent home-made Italian food. If you're seriously hungry start with the garlic knots. Otherwise the Stromboli is a definite winner. Nice food, great people!"

  • "I took a group of 18 including 13 teenage Girl Scouts. This truly is a family and friends restaurant because you don't leave without feeling like you are just that. The food was Outstanding! The Chef and owner came out to make us feel welcome. Thank you so much to Patzeria for making our pre-Broadway dinner spectacular!!"

  • "We let our 18 year old daughter choose a place for dinner after we attended the Sunday matinee of the Lion King. She wanted a pizza and Patzeria was close by. It didn't disappoint. We had a wonderful Sicilian pizza and Caesar salad. Great food at a reasonable price for NYC"

  • "solid place with a warm staff, good food, reasonable prices, and attentive service. Pre-theatre the ambiance was frenetic as was the noise level. Overall a rewarding experience. Plan to return."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "The chicken pica ta was very good. My wife liked the bread. We had a nice Chianti. The spaghetti was very good. The meatballs needed a bit more seasoning (salt at least). A very nice chocolate mousse for dessert. The service was O.K., they were very busy and that was reflected by somewhat slower service."

  • "As others said -- great Classic Italian food, refreshingly simple and moderately priced for Broadway, fabulous waiters (the kind you can gesture to and they get it), but airconditioning couldn't stand up to the crowd on a hot night. Loved my veal piccata."

  • "This was the third time to eat at Patzerias since 2012, and it is consistently great! We had lasagna, spaghetti, a lemon chicken special, and macaroni (1/2 serving for child), along with cheese sticks, chocolate Cake and chocolate moose Pie. YUMMY and great service! Yes, I will return."

  • "Their motto, come in as strangers, leave as friends, couldn't be more appropriate. Not only is the food phenomenal, the service is warm and professional and John at the bar makes everyone feel welcome. The kitchen is always accommodating and special requests don't ruffle any feathers (ask if they have any off-menu gnocchi, it's amazing!). There is a great mix of neighborhood regulars, out of towners and repeat customers from around the city. We love it here!"

  • "We had to find a place that was reasonable, could fit 20 of us and wasn't jammed with tourists. Bingo! This it! The service was fantastic - so friendly, so attentive and accommodated all of our quirky needs. Will definitely go back for either a group dinner or even a smaller more intimate meal. Thanks so much."

  • "My sister, a friend, and I went to Patzeria Family & Friends before a show, and the service was wonderful! The staff was friendly and personable (and able to work with our showtime deadline!)- as good as everything else was, I'd say the service was easily the best part. The food was good- I can be a bit of an Italian snob, but everyone loved their dishes as well as the appetizers, and the pizzas at the next table looked divine. I will definitely be back to try one of those next!"

  • "Great food. Service was not good. Didn't stop to ask how we were doing. Had to ask for my bill. Then it took forever to complete my bill just to find out they charged my card for the wrong table. They did apologize but it felt like we didn't matter as customers. "

  • "Going to New York for the weekend and having 2 sons that are in a wide range of food choices, I new Italian couldn't miss. Went on computer and asked for a wonderful restaurant near" Avenue Q" a play we were seeing. First Italian that popped up was Pazteria, We were nor disappointed. Shrimp Parmesan, White Pizza, and Pasta with Clam sauce. All were wonderful. House Chianti was delicious."

  • "This was the first meal of our New York trip and couldn't have been better. We were hoping for a good italian meal. Patzeria didn't disappoint. Reservations recommended. It's a small but nice place. The food and the service was perfect. A little slow on taking our order but after that everything flowed well. Not slow but neither too fast, just perfect. We ordered the garlic knots and fries mozzarella cheese as a starter. The mozzarella was very good the garlic knots, not so much. They also serve bread so you can skip the knots. For the entree we ordered the tortellini, a pizza and the stromboli. Everything was excellent. Will be back again when in New York. Hard to find a very good italian restaurant with reasonable prices. "

  • "We had an early bird dinner pre-Hedwig. 12 people and a rushed timeline and they were great! Made excellent suggestions for some family style starters, kept the wine pouring and got us out the door exactly at the time we requested without things feeling rushed. Food was good, thumbs up from both the NY'ers in the group as well as the out of towners. I highly recommend for your pre- or post-show dinner or just a good stop in the midst of the madness of the neighborhood. "

  • "Found Patzeria on Trip Advisor. Needed a location near the theater. I was so happy we made a reservation through Open Table- sat us immediately even though the place was busy. We wanted a quick meal - so we asked for a bar seat. The Bartender could not have been more friendly and helpful. The owners were in there and they had a quick chat with us- so welcoming and friendly. We'll be back! The pizza was awesome! Great caesar salad! All wonderful!"
