Don't let the name fool you.
Great lasagnas but other dishes, appetizers and sides were very good also. Restaurant is much more than its gimmicky name.

Great neighborhood find!
Celebrated a family event at Tommy's for 25 people. Food was amazing. Tommy -- who is charming and gracious -- was flexible and welcoming. Have been back for dinner several times. Home made pastas, desserts, great antipasto and apps. Service is great, nice wine selection. Great to support a local business that is obviously a labor of love.

Dinner at Tommy Lasagna was
Dinner at Tommy Lasagna was a great experience. My friend and I shared the rice balls appetizer and it was perfect. Crispy on the outside, cheesy on the inside, and came with an amazing tomato sauce dip. For entrees, I picked the Mezzaluna pasta and it was incredible!! The handmade pasta was delicate and filled with different types of cheeses. My friend went for the Lasagna Tasting and tried Tommy Lasagna, the Truffle Lasagna, and the Nonna. Each was amazing, but of course, the Truffle was the best. So rich! Overall, we really enjoyed our visit and I would recommend it.

Good Things Come in Small Packages!
Cute place, great food and excellent service - wait staff could not have been nicer. Just don't expect to go there and get your mama's serving of lasagna...the portions are quite small, but so yummy!

Should have had the lasagna sampler
Can't say enough good things about the servers and the service.
The salads were excellent, especially the arugula and beets.
We felt the lasagna was a must for this first experience but want to try other entrees in the future.
We had the lasagna with bolognese, the mushroom and truffle lasagna, and the sausage lasagna.
Enjoyed it all thoroughly. The mushroom lasagna was very rich and should be enjoyed in a sample size only.

An italian gem
The place is great, it has a good selection of both pasta and lasagna that you can't go wrong with. Also a very nice selection of wine and drinks. The atmosphere is is calming definitely a place to relax or hang out with a friend or special someone.

Friendly and good food
Had my first dining experience at Tommy's last night and it was quite enjoyable. It was approaching closing time but the staff greeted us warmly and made no efforts to rush us. Our waiter was helpful and friendly, although I found the use of the IPads for taking dining orders seemed to be more of a hindrance than a help! Our party of 6 enjoyed the rice balls and mussels as appetizers. We had a variety of entrees but only one of the signature lasagnas---the spicy sausage, which was cooked perfectly and reasonably sized (although a bit pricy). My son loved the crispy chicken but my daughter found the linguini in clam sauce to be okay but nothing special. Other pasta dishes were good but if you come here you really need to order the lasagna!
6/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Try the fettuccine - outstanding
This was our second visit and we were not disappointed. The list of different lasagnas is so varied that you should begin with the sampler of 3 types of your choosing. We had the osso buco - terrific and the lobster fettuccine - outstanding. We will go back again.
6/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had the most genuine waiter
We had the most genuine waiter I think I have ever had. He let us take our time when ordering the different courses, continually came by to ensure everything was alright. Great service. Great Ambiance!
6/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food and service are so outstanding that you would think it harder to get a reservation
6/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Had to come back
My co-workers and I celebrated my birthday here. We had a fabulous time and the food, drink and service were fantastic from start to finish.
6/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Had a wonderful dinner
Went here with friends and had a great time - fantastic food and service. We took advantage of the half-price wine (which came with a charcuterie board - a very pleasant surprise!)

Lovely restaurant, great lasagna
Lovely restaurant, great lasagna and amazing service

Wonderful service and food. Lasagna is fabulous and a great place for lunch, as i work nearby. I'm very lucky to have such a fine restaurant with excellent lasagna nearby.
6/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Go with the Tommy!
I really enjoyed lunching here yesterday. I came with a group of 5 and we were seated promptly. The space is large and bright and the menu offers a variety of lasagnas. The lunch portion is perfectly sized and came with your choice of a mixed greens salad or caesar salad.
Most of us ordered the traditional meat lasagna but the ones that didn't also claimed that theirs were delicious. It was served hot, the cheese was plentiful and melty, and the sauce was perfect. All in all, they make great lasagna!
Also, lunch portions are anywhere from $10-13 a slice of lasagna with side salad.
7/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was creative, fresh & delicious. My only complaint is that they were out of the lobster lasagna. Our reservation was for 6:30pm which made the absence less tolerable. You also had a view of the kitchen and the cooking/teaching class & that was fascinating to watch.
7/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Don't let the name fool you. I totally expected
the feel of a Tony Roma's or a Carmine's instead Tommy Lasagna's
offered a casual-chic borderline fancy feel.
The service was very good, extremely attentive.
The food was very good - we had:
Lasagna tastings - Poppa's, Lamb & Truffle
The rice balls are a must - moist, cheesy in, golden crispy out.
Slider trio - big portion for a starter (I'm not complaining)
Crabcake, meatball, and short rib - all
Great meal, can't wait to go back!
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
I Love Lasagna!
We really enjoyed our experience. The food was good and the service was great. We started with the rice balls, and they were so cheesy and delicious. We then went for a couple of lasagna samplers. I recommend the original tommy lasagna, lamb lasagna or lobster lasagna.
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Lobster mac n cheese!
This place was a great find - the appetizers wowed me more than the main course, but I feel like that happens to me often. A group of us shared the lobster mac n cheese, the sliders and the rice balls. All were delicious!!! And the Sangria was yummy too :-)
8/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food, great drinks, great service! All around a great experience.
8/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food is homemade, interesting and made with care. The service is attentive and friendly. The vibe is good. Dorade was absolutely delicious.

Great staff, delicious lasagna
We had a great meal here--try the lasagna tasting!

BACK FOR THE SECOND TIME AS
BACK FOR THE SECOND TIME AS GOOD IF NOT BETTER THEN THE FIRST TIME AND THE FIRST TIME IT WAS FANTASTIC.
9/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our server recommended the rice balls as an app and the lasagna sampler for entrees - perfect suggestions! The plate of 3 lasagna "tastes" looked small at first, but they were more than enough for dinner, especially after the incredible rice balls. We also tried the basil vodka gimlet which was heavenly!
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent food, service, and price
I arrived with zero expectations and no particular liking for Italian; Tommy L's was just conveniently located. I was so pleasantly surprised to find that (a) the prices were low, (b) the service was attentive and friendly, but not intrusive, (c) the food came very speedily, and (d) the lasagna was out of this world! Again, I'm NOT a fan of Italian, but I've been craving this lasagna all week since I visited -- I will definitely return soon.
The only negative I can think of is noise. Because of the layout, the lack of carpeting, and the lack of tablecloths, this space is likely to get loud when crowded. This didn't occur when I visited, though, so even this is a minor comment on an otherwise flawless performance.
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
I have been to Tommy Lasagna a few times and their meals never disappoint me. You have to try the rice balls! They're absolutely delicious!
9/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Loved the lasagna Sampler
Group of 4- w all ordered the lasagna sampler and really enjoyed it! Nice relaxed atmosphere with attentive service!
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
A Keeper near Union Square!
Tommy Lasagna's food begins with from scratch pasta, sauces and cheeses, deliciously combined into a variety Italian creations. Tommy's was a very generous portion. The home made mozzarella bruschetta is a fabulous starter. There is a curved bar around the open kitchen and when we were there a pasta class was being taught. It certainly looked like fun! They also offer cheese making classes. Our server was very friendly, as was one of the partners who greeted us and inquired about our meals. Service was perfect! We enjoyed a leisurely meal, never feeling rushed. We had a sampling of gelato for dessert, and since they were out of salted caramel, they gave us an extra scoop! And yes, it was smooth and perfect! We will be going back to Tommy's!
10/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was really good and the service was amazing. We went with another couple for a pre-theater dinner and were not disappointed. We even went back after the show for a nightcap at the bar.
10/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
BEST ITALIAN EVER!!!!
Forget every other Italian resturant, fancy, dive, or your favorite. If you haven't been to Tommy Lasagna, you haven't had the best lasagna ever! You could tell the minute you walk in the place that everything will be amazing and it was. The rice balls were to die for, Veal park, lasagna, even the panko crusted shrimp. I only wish I had room for dessert...... I will be back.
They had 2 couples having a pasta making class right at the kitchen bar counter, awesome idea! great for a party or dates with friends. Can't wait to go back and try more.......
YOU HAVE TO GO !!!!!!!
10/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
I'm not a huge fan of lasagna but this restaurant has converted me. Great selection, reasonable price, friendly staff. I highly recommend the restaurant.
10/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
The lasagna recipes were fantastic! Great to have flavor combinations I wouldn't thought to make at home that were delicious and fresh. The portion size for lunch was modest and just right! This way I could indulge without overdoing it. I can't wait to come back with other family and friends.
10/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
All 11 members of our party enjoyed the food. Lasagna was fantastic as expected given the name!
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
I've been here a couple times before but decided to take my family who was visiting from New Orleans while they were visiting in town for the weekend. They are all chefs/foodies so I knew I had to pick a good place, plus I wanted to show them I had some great spots in New York since I always have the best food when I go down south.
Needless to say, Tommy Lasagna was amazing! The food was perfect, the service was perfect, it was great!! I will for sure be coming back and bringing more and more people here. I love this place!!
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always Amazingly Yummy and Friendly
Came with a friend who had a Scoutmob deal because we were in the Union Sq area. We had DELICIOUS lasagna tastings. I came back w/ my boyfriend for a wine class and food pairing. He gets so animated telling people how amazing the food was that evening! The manager & head chef came out to speak with us. This week, I brought my parents here while they were visiting from Florida. Everyone was genuinely warm towards us. The server tailored suggestions to my parents' tastes. Everything is fresh because it's all made on site. My lasagna tasting included Poppa's, Tommy's, and Artichoke-Spinach. [My boyfriend got a diferent pasta dish that was great, too.] We split a flourless chocolate cake with caramel ice cream and granola - YUM!
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Outstanding Once Again
The food and service are always excellent here. Love the freshly made pastas and the wine recommendation really hit the spot.
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
We went for my birthday dinner this past weekend and everything was incredible! The food was amazing, the service was OUTSTANDING, our waitress was so sweet helpful and perfectly attentive. Can't wait to go back!
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fantastic as always
Impossible to get a bad meal at Tommy Lasagna. Love it.
10/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
best italian food!
bases his restaurant on lasagna...what probably would be the last thing you would order from an italian restaurant cause you would think its been sittin in the freezer for weeks...how ever with everything made fresh; the pasta, the sauce, the cheese...they absolutely nailed it...dont want to eat anywhere else
11/2/2013 5:00:00 PM
Great neighborhood lunch place
Stopped in for lunch... Very quiet and not very busy. The menu is a great deal. Large salads or a small size lasagna and side salad for $10 - $12 can't be beat. Everything was first-rate. Great tasting and fresh.
11/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
Lasangne was awesome!
I had the Pappa Lasagne and it was awesome. Also, the rice balls were equally great. Service was good and it has a nice ambiance for a nice, casual dinner for two. Also, they have a several gluten free items as well.
11/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
Enjoyed our great waitress Karen serving us delicious food in fun atmosphere. The lasagna tasting was highly recommended
Even sang happy birthday to our friend. Great evening!
11/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
Food was very good but for the second time in a row the fritto misto was anything but, consisting almost entirely of fried calamari.
The portions are unnecessarily outsize. Save some money and consumers' waistlines!
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
A great find!
We really enjoyed our visit to Tommy Lasagna. The minute you walk in your feel comfortable in this space. It is casual, yet on the upscale casual side. Our server karen(?) was a complete gem. Low key and all that you need a waitress to be. Of course we had the lasagna and it did not disappoint. A really lovely evening all around- we'll be back!
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Lamb and Truffles!
Went there for a business lunch and found that the menu was easy to read and the server was knowledgeable. I was very happy to say I would like a glass of rose and the server was able to accommodate immediately without confusing things.
We order the lamb lasagna and the white truffle mushroom lasagna. The portions were light and the food had plenty of flavor. It was a great value. I will be going again.
11/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
Go for the Lasagna..
There were 4 of us for dinner this week, and we ordered the Tommy Lasagna, the Meatball Lasagna, the Salmon, and a Caesar salad.
The Tommy Lasagna was just like I was used to having home-made from a Sicilian friend. The Meatball Lasagna was a little disappointing; definitely could have done without the layered meatballs in it, and it wasn't cheesy enough. The salmon was a mistake...served on a bed of fettuccini, it was dry and fishy-tasting. The Caesar salad was amazing...very traditional, tasty sauce, just the way it should be. It didn't need anything..salt, pepper, or cheese!
So, I would highly recommend this place for the LASAGNA & CAESAR SALAD...and wait staff is very friendly!
