Me encantó el restaurant básicamente por dos razones, una comida exquisita. Todos los platos muy bien preparados y muy bien presentados. Mi hija pidió uno que no estaba en el menú y también fue exquisitamente preparado. Además tiene muy buena atención de todo el personal. Es un poquito caro pero vale la pena!

The food and service was very good. Double cut Veal Chop & Veal Osso Buco special - excellent. Chazz showed up and bee-lined to a friends table for a few minutes then disappeared....pretty cool though.

Never thought that we could be "surprised" by Italian food until we ate here. From the Buffalo Mozzarella and Calamari to "The Bronx Tale", the Veal Chop and Salmon Palminteri, this was an amazing food experience.

Add to that the excellent service and meeting Mr. Chazz Palminteri himself, and my family and I had a perfect dining experience.

Can't wait to return!!!

We had a group of eight after seeing A Bronx Tale. We actually had one of the cast members with us. We were celebrating everyone's birthday and anniversary. The staff was extremely attentive and helpful with the menu and wine list. Appetizers were delicious and made to share. Everyone ordered something different for their dinner and each meal was excellent. We were able to relax and enjoy and were not rushed at all. Overall, an exceptional experience.

Chazz Palminteri’s Italian Restaurant & Bar is one of the best restaurants in NYC! This eatery is located in the heart of Manhattan with excellent service and a warm ambiance. The decor is lovely too.

My son enjoyed the Italian bread. I loved the pecorino cheese they brought out to the table. I enjoyed the Insalata Trecolore with grilled chicken with a balsamic dressing-it was the best salad I have ever had in my life!!

My family enjoyed 2 Grilled USDA Prime New York Sirloin Steak with mashed potatoes and string beans. They said it was one of the best steaks they have ever had at a restaurant.

Fabulous dining experience!

Wait staff and service were incredible! Food was delicious!! We had oysters, grilled calamari and the eggplant for apps - all amazing!! I was undecided for dinner so the waiter literally said to me “What do you like? Whatever you like, I will have them make you!” He wasn’t lying and through together a made up dish of fettuccine, clams, scallops, shrimp and eggplant with garlic and oil.... omg!!! Delish! By the time I got to dessert, I was stuffed. The Italian Ricotta cheesecake was soooo good but I was too full to finish it! Someone else got the raspberry sherbert and cannolis which were equally delicious. We will definitely be back!!

I should have listened to the person that wrote about having to wait an extended period of time to be seated. I phoned the restaurant well in advance of our reservation and the hostess was so sweet and said there was no issue with changing the time of our reservation. I mentioned about having to make a show as did my girlfriend when we arrived. Waiting over 25 minutes was ridiculous and not even an offer for a drink, a dessert or something to make up for us having to shove our food down our throats in order to make our show was very unprofessional. You mess up then own up to it. Do something or you will likely lose a customer from ever returning. I often go to an excellent Italian Restaurant nearby. La Masseria. I have been returning there for many many years. Why? Because of their great food and professionalism. I cannot even recall how good or bad our food was because I had no time to savor the taste or even recall what I ordered. That doesn't happen often. Chaz, you are one of my favorite actors, but your staff should not make promises that they cannot keep. This was our anniversary dinner that resulted in a bad start. Fortunately my gf is a real winner in her great attitude and ability to let little bother her. Maybe we will have a change of heart, but it wasn't a good first impression to say the least.

We had a wonderful lunch at Chaz Palminteri today. The minestrone was the heartiest I’ve ever had, and the chicken Parmesan was cooked to perfection. My colleague thoroughly enjoyed the pea soup and the gnocchi. The staff was friendly, courteous, and knowledgeable. They were on hand when needed, but didn’t hover. The restaurant itself is lovely and well appointed. Initially, it was a bit loud but my colleague requested that we be moved to a quieter table, which the staff obliged graciously. All in all, a terrific experience. I highly recommend.

Convenient to the theater district but removed a bit to avoid crushing crowds. Plenty of friendly servers got us through dinner in time for our show, but not rushed. Lots of menu choices to satisfy everyone, enjoyed the complimentary olives and cheese as a starter. Special pasta dish of pappardelle with truffles and mushrooms was tasty, as was the tiramisu. Prices a bit high but wise choices can make a difference.

we went to a matinee and chose this restaurant on a whim. This was a great decision.
First: the restaurant service was well beyond what we could expect. They treated us like we came there every day. I think the waiter was named Nicko, {I am sorry if I got this wrong} He was probably the best waiter we have ever met. Please let me know if we got his name correct. It was our 40th anniversary and he treated us like family.
Second: our meal was extremely good. {The risotto tasted just like my mom used to make}
Our dessert was served with a candle and a happy anniversary.
Everything was done to PERFECTION.
Third: You should be very proud of your service and quality of food.
Fourth: I wish we could have met Chazz on let him know how we enjoyed our night.
BTW: The matinee was A Bronx Tale

I went with my son after the show, which was amazing, and the greatness continued. From the parmesan cheese, olives and fresh bread w olive oil dip to the appetizers and throughout dinner it was a wonderful experience. My veal with 3 mushrooms was one of the tastiest dishes I ever had. Mr Palmenteri was there dining after the show with some of his cast members. He came over greeted us and took a picture with my son. What a great guy!! I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PLACE!!
