    We did a girls day out with lunch and then Radio City Christmas Show. A friend recommended PizzaArte. We had a great lunch and a nice long table on the second floor. The staff was very attentive and friendly. I would definitely go back and recommend to anyone that will be in that part of town.

    We went to this restaurant because of the numerous gluten-free items on the menu. When we sat down and tried to order, however, our waiter told us that all the gluten-free items had been sold out. (This was only 8pm.) We asked how that could possibly be the case and the waiter sent over a manager who said that actually, the shipment of gluten-free items had just not arrived that day. So two different stories and in neither case did we feel that they were really apologetic and they did not offer to comp us a drink or anything else even though we told them that we had chosen to eat there because of the gluten-free options supposedly offered. We ended up staying because we were already seated and it was cold outside, but I would never go back there again.

    My daughter & I chose Pizzarte for our last night NYC. It's a lively restaurant, bustling w/ patrons so I'd recommend a reservation as it is a quite a small place. Portions are quite large (for we 2 ladies anyway) so we shared a salad & pizza. The Spinaci salad was wonderful & Rustichella pizza, even better! I indulged in the Fiat martini, which if you like gorgonzola stuffed olives, you will love this martini! Fantastic! We would definitely visit Pizzarte again.

    Once again, Pizza Arte lived up to it's usual standard of excellent food and great service! We had limited time to dine that evening and our waiter got us out in time without feeling rushed. The food was excellent and also the wine recommendation. We love dining at Pizza Arte when in Midtown.

    A fabulous experience, a NYC tradition when it comes to pizza. But this was even more. As their name promises, PizzArte is dedicated to the artistry to food in general and pizza in particular. Even the wall art is outstanding. When you dine there, you feel like you're part of something very special. Out waiter was perfect. He paid attention to detail but never insensitive to our privacy when we needed it. The Sophia pizza is out of this world - fried then baked crust. Fresh, fabulous and fun. And the prices were very reasonable, in any market. We hated to leave.

    Although the various types of pizzas on the menu sounded amazing and reminded me of my recent trip to Italy, I was so disappointed when I received my margherita pizza. The pizza was poorly cooked- bottom of the pizza was soggy from the sauce. I also thought that the pizzas were way overpriced, especially considering the size and the quality. I honestly don't know where all of the positive reviews came from. I will NOT be going back.

    We needed a good but casual lunch spot for 8 near the MoMA. PizzArte was perfect. We sat by the front window and had a wonderful lunch of salad, pizza and Peroni! High recommend. Get the Eduardo pizza and the arugula salad. Delicious!! Great service too!

    On our first night in New York, we wanted something simple and close to our hotel, but interesting. PizzArte was a great choice. We made reservation, by had to wait a few minutes for our table. The manager introduced himself and offered us two complementary glasses of prosecco. The have us a nice table in the front window from which we enjoyed complementary olives, bread and oil. All very nice. We ordered pizza and a salad. Simple but so delicious. The salad was arugula with shaved Parmesan. All ver fresh and flavorful. The brick oven pizza was amazing. Again, fresh authentic ingredients all marvelously assembled. I would cerainly recommend this place. Nothing dance, but solid.

    Located near MOMA and not far from some theaters and Lincoln Center Jazz, this is a very pleasant spot. The food is good and, for the area, reasonably priced, and the service was excellent. We sat upstairs and it was not terribly noisy. There's fun art on the walls that adds to the simple, clean ambience. All in all, a great choice for lunch or dinner.

    PizzArte had a varied menu, including seasonal options, which I really appreciated. The only drawback was the awkward bar seating. It made conversation slightly stilted as we craned our necks in an attempt to see each other.

    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".
