    We had a large group with visitors from out of town and we had a wonderful experience. We were seated near a large window with a nice view and we did not feel rushed at all. The wait staff was so friendly and accommodating. The pizza is authentic just like they make in Napoli! The chef, servers, and manager all spoke Italian so we knew we were in for a true Italian dining experience. This was a great find in Midtown.

    I've been there several times - but during the week and my friends and i loved it. This time i made a reservation for a Saturday night with my husband on open table and when we arrived they did not know if they had a table to us. They did not even act nice about it. Then squeezed us in upstairs (which i requested) - very loud and the service was poor to say the least. I understand a trendy hip place, which can be loud - that's fine, but the waiters gave our food to someone else then took it off the other table and gave it to us, i felt like they were rushing us. When i asked for merlot the waiter jumped at me by saying "we do not have a glass" - kind of fresh. All i can say is they were not "nice".

    Came here for lunch with my teenage kids pre show. They wanted pizza and I wanted upscale NYC cuisine and service - PizzArt delivered! The salads and pizzas were top notch and service very elegant. Wish they would have gown my son butter for the bread when he asked but other wise everything was very nice.

    This neighborhood Italian restaurant was less than a block from our luxury hotel. The ambience was modern and sophisticated yet very comfortable. Our server had a thick Italian accent and was charming and helpful. We ordered a bowl of minestrone, a specialty salad and a pizza to share. The food was excellent! Service was not consistent, however. We were given prompt attention when we first arrived, but as we finished eating and were waiting for dessert menus, we noticed our server was sitting nearby, eating his own meal and completely ignoring us. Eventually we had dessert and coffee and then had to wait quite a while to receive our check.

    We had pizza here and it is really outstanding. Nicely charred from the wood oven and with great toppings. However service was distraught and we were not asked about drinks when we got the menu and we didn't receive any bread. The servers were uninterested and seemed over-worked. Let's hope this was a bad day. We'd go again for the pizza though!

    We ate here with 5 adults,a a 6 year old and infant. It's not easy to find a fairly priced dinner in the West 50's in New York City, especially one that accommodates the food preferences of a group like ours. PizzArte was a great choice as it offers pizza as well as a number of other foods at a cost that doesn't empty your wallet. While only one person, who had a pasta dish, raved about his/her meal, everyone else was satisfied with their order.

    It's a good respite from shopping on Fifth Avenue or a busy weekday lunch. The restaurant has pleasant decor and service and the food is adequate. Some dishes are even good. But it's not the haven of gourmet food some reviewers would have you believe.

    We had a very enjoyable pre-theater dinner at this modern and welcoming spot. We started with the salumi & formaggi, which was pretty good, but nothing special. The insalata di frutti di mare on the other hand was fantastic. The octopus and cuttlefish were super fresh and tender and simply prepared to take advantage of those facts. We followed with some pizzas, which were expertly cooked with a nice blister to the light and chewy crust - don't miss the Tartufata, which is redolent of black truffle. The service was prompt and attentive without being over present. Well Done!

    The pizza here is excellent - the dough is very fluffy and light, and there are some creative toppings (e.g. brussel sprouts, butternut squash) without the menu going over the top. It's pricey and the service is very matter-of-fact, but an enjoyable meal because of the food.

    Wow - what a gem to find in this Midtown area full of seedy bars and oversized middle of the road dining options. I have been staying in Midtown for the past three years and just found this amazing Napoli style pizza restaurant. The menu is full of amazing sounding pastas and appetizers but I went for a salad and pizza and was not disappointed! I was alone so I ate at the bar and the bartender was very attentive and friendly. He spoke fluent Italian as did 50% of the others around me, so this says something about the quality of the food and ambiance. What a great find - I will definitely be back!

    The food is excellent, but the wait times and the confusion of the staff make it not-so-excellent. We waited 15 minutes to be seated (with a reservation!) and each of our courses -- appetizers, pastas, then desserts took a half hour to come. The dinner, I understand, but a half hour for a plate of sausage and cheese for the appetizer, and also a half hour for ice cream? REALLY? The staff, all of them -- hostess, waiters, and busboys -- seemed confused and hesitant, like they had just been hired. The food is good, but it is quite expensive for such a weird experience.

    I met up with some out of town friends for lunch. We each ordered something different - pizza, pasta, fish, salad. We were on a limited schedule and were served promptly. My friends loved their food. I liked my gnocchi, although it seemed to have cooled down a bit too much before it got to the table. Our waiter was friendly.

    Was surprised to find the place had been renovated. Missed the old place and the great lobster pizza. Anyway, the hostess was friendly. We had to wait for a few minutes and directed to a coat rack in the back. The bar downstairs was all seats occupied, but not too loud. Then we were escorted to our table upstairs. The place was full, and the noise level was higher than downstairs. The art works were colorful and great to admire while waiting for food. Food was OK. Pizza was good. Service was a bit slow since the place was crowded.
