Diner Reviews
  • "I picked this restaurant because of proximity to the theater, good reviews and reasonable prices. We had a great experience. The food was very good and very reasonably priced. The drinks were also very good and reasonably priced. We were enthusiastically greeted when we arrived and shown immediately to our table. The service was brisk without being rushed and the atmosphere was very pleasant...."

  • "We had dinner for eight on Friday evening at Patzeria Family and Friends. Although the dining room was full and energetic, the service was prompt and attentive. Their large pizza is enormous. Thankfully, the server warned us of this and kept us from over-ordering for the party. The food was tasty, plentiful, and pleasantly inexpensive. This is a great place for families or groups of friends to enjoy a delicious Italian meal whenever the mood strikes."

  • "The service was wonderful, but the food itself was pretty bad. Very salty sauces, flavorless pasta...but fairly priced food and entrees. If you stick with pizza, you would think this was a 4 star place. Unfortunately, we didn't. Lots of tourists, too."

  • "My wife found this restaurant last minute on OpenTable.. The rest of our 7 person party was quite skeptical, given the "pizzaria" aura of the website. When we pulled up to the restaurant, it was no "looker" from the outside, which made us all laugh, uncomfortably. We still decided to go in, having already discussed going to another restaurant. WELL...once inside we smiled with relief! The atmosphere immediately reminded me of little Italy, it was charming, and beautiful, and busy! We were seated immediately (right before a show!) and our waiter, Gennaro, whom was welcoming, warm and super helpful. The food was fabulous, not your foodie, gourmet type, just great Italian! Get the Fructe de Mare!! We LOVED, this place!! and will be back soon!"

  • "Had 6 pm reservations and theater tickets for 8 pm. Showed up at 5:55. Waited for 25 minutes until we finally suggested that they take two empty tables and join them so our party of 6 could sit. Ordered drinks. Half came, waited forever for the other half. Ordered 2 apps and entrees for all. Apps came our right away. Waited over 45 minutes for entrees. Now it is getting tight on time as we are about 5 blocks from the theater. We wolf down our meals and while waiting to leave, the maitre d' says, " If you have tickets you should make reservations earlier than for 7 pm." Dumbfounded we told him our reservations were for 6 pm, a full two hours before curtain. BTW, we were not the only table that had to fly out of there after waiting forever."

  • "Great restaurant off the beaten path of Time Square. Best pizza I've ever had and the the friendliest family restaurant! We loved it, thank you so much for your warm hospitatlity, we stopped twice during our quick weekend in New York."

  • "We were going to see Cinderella and this was close enough and far enough outside of the broadway/times square area to avoid long waits and mediocre food. The service was great and the pizza was excellent. The highlight was the zeppoles for dessert with powedered sugar and chocolate sauce."

  • "Very personable service. One of our group accurately called it good American -Italian. No real surprises on the menu but what they had was pretty good."

  • "We ate at Patzeria Family & Friends 2x's during our recent NYC trip. The name of this restaurant reflects its atmosphere. We had a party of 6 including 2 difficult to please teenagers. Our positive experience began as we were still walking through the door and were immediately greeted with a warm, inviting greeting. I felt like I was being welcomed into their home. The menu was diverse both in food and in price. Everyone in our party was pleased with the offerings. Our table ordered everything from pizza, to pasta. Everyone raved about how great it was. Our waiter, Gennaro was beyond excellent. We were very well taken care of. He was friendly, light-hearted and even got the teenagers laughing! I will, without a doubt, be back!"

  • "I was out on the town with some girlfriends and due to the inclement weather, we wanted to find a restaurant close to the show we were going to see that night. when I searched opentable, I found this little gem and saw how great the reviews were and I will say that the reviews were right on par! family like atmosphere. you can feel the love in the air! not a fancy place and a bit noisy but hey, that's what us Italians are used to! loved it... and would definitely visit again."

  • "As the name suggests, this is a nice place to eat with family and friends. Ambiance is casual; food is good. Being so close to the theater district, they have filled their walls with signed posters of past and current Broadway shows, which is a nice touch."

  • "I was looking for a restaurant at the last minute to meet a friend before attending a show. The waitstaff was attentive and we shared a salad and both had the lasagna which was superb. We plan to return soon to try more dishes."

  • "If you are looking for a family friendly Italian restaurant that is comfortable for something as simple as pizza, but that also offers a full Italian menu, then look no further than Patzeria. With excellent service, good food and a friendly atmosphere, this is the place to stop when looking for moderately priced Italian food anywhere near the theater district."

  • "We've been here before, and the food is good as is the service. It's a very friendly restaurant with friendly waiters and very low key, but is a very pleasant experience and convenient to some theaters."

  • "Good experience all-around with one exception - pizza was long in coming out of the oven. We had theater tickets and sat down with 4 other tables who were doing the same thing. All of them were finished eating and leaving before our two pizzas came out. Seemed like an unusual glitch for this place. Waiter offered to keep our pizza in the kitchen for pick-up after show. He made the best of it. Pizza was very tatsty."

  • "Our family of 4 had great meals in a warm and inviting casual restaurant. The staff were exceptionally friendly and the service was as great as the meal. We'll eat here again anytime we are in NYC. We stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn around the corner so this is a particularly convenient restaurant that happens to be a gem."

  • "Even though we were 30 minutes early for our reservation we were greeted like family and seated straight away. The food was excellent and very good value. The waiter was friendly and helpful. The only potential downside was that we had to pay cash - not a problem for us as a small party and as the food was very reasonably priced but could have been a problem for a large family group."

  • "Small neighborhood type place. Owner very accomodating. Food very good. Waiter seemed a little disinterested, but competent."
