Great birthday dinner, the duck ravioli was exquisite and the olive oil for dipping the bread was amazingly flavored. We had the tiramisu and chocolate lava cake for dessert and they had a candle/sang spontaneously. Great visit overall, ask to be seated in the back if you want to get away from a bar scene for ambiance, but great meal no matter what. Very, very fast service (I don't know how they moved with such speed).

Dress code is incouraged, great food, I would rate this place as good or my opinion better then Carmine's, and don't get me wrong I love Carmine's. The pasta is freshly made. All around a great place to dine.

I and my friend Rosemarie Barbagallo grew up in that area and still go their in our 80's and shop. We shop and buy our cold cuts, meats, fish, fruits and vegetables and most delicious homemade macaroni, Pastry and assorted breads. The food at Chazz Palmintieri was so delicious the ravioli with pesto sauce was excellent with fresh basil, baked clams and then I chose Rack of Lamb that was out of this world best I ever ate made with mint sauce, mashed potatoes and stringbeans. My group enjoyed the cappuccino, Italian pastries and crème bulle'.
We enjoyed everything and we are planning to return again soon. Most of all enjoyed "A Bronx
Tale".

We waited 10 minutes before we were asked about cocktails and then another 20 for menus ...30 minutes total! We had to ask for menus!! We could not understand a word the waiter said and ordered something that we didn’t want! When we finally ordered we waited another 20 minutes got our food!! We watched 2 other tables get served and finish long before we did!! Would never go back! Terrible experience!!

I cook, we rarely eat out. When we do it is usually Brooklyn/Staten Island neighborhood restaurants which has an abundance of Italian restaurants. Friends are coming to New York this summer and we were looking for a nice, cozy not too noisy place to eat in Manhattan. And who doesn't like Italian food. An ad for this restaurant was in Time Out NY magazine and thought this would be a nice place to try. When you look at the menu, you first think "so what", all the usual suspects of an Italian restaurant. But there is really well prepared Italian food and not great. This was really good, well prepared and the "Usually Suspects" were prepared perfectly. Generous portions with vegetables sides, food came to the table hot, not just warm and priced just right. It was 6 o'clock and the music was not too loud in the background and the staff was was on top of things, extremely pleasant and not pushy. We will take our friends to Chazz Palminteri's and keep it on our go to places in Manhattan.

A great location, nice service, professional maitre'd, good menu, great wine-by-the-glass selection & pricing. But the food was just not great. The bread basket was totally uninspired....why bother? One pasta dish was excellent, the other was not so good. The cheesecake was OK.

Very Touristy. Booked weeks ahead of time on open table and after waiting a long time, they told us they didn’t have a table for us. I was 10 minutes late to the reservation due to road closures in the area, but I called ahead to let them know, to make sure we don’t lose our table. We got there 10minutes late just as anticipated and communicated to them... maybe that was why they didn’t have a table for us?!?! Seems odd. Most NYC places give us 15mins, due to the usual traffic and delays..
They offered the “only table” which was by the bar. Service once seated was attentive but confusing since we didn’t seem to have a designated waiter. At the end of the day, it just felt like a hotel lobby bar. Food was ok. Nothing I would go out of my way to go back to... unfortunately not an experience I plan to repeat. All in all, It’s a very casual dressed restaurant with lots of tourist walk-ins. Apparently Chaz is there from time to time so if your a fan, maybe it’s worth going to?!?!

Fabulous $29.95 pre fixe lunch menu. Many great choices which includes appetizer, entree, dessert and coffee or tea. Went with 5 girlfriends before theater. Everyone was impressed by the quantity as well as quality of food. Nice ambiance in main dining room and not so crowded so could actually have great conversations. Will definitely return.

Good...I had Chicken Parmesan and overall, I was pleased. A lot to eat and the rigatoni was good. My business partner had the veal shank and he totally loved his meal. Drinks were measured which is a little disappointing. Our server had a hearing problem and had to ask multiple times for us to repeat - good man though. I'll go back for a second try.

We saw A Bronx Tail first and came for dinner and it was delicious! We had the fresh pasta special and veal and it was great! Tiramisu for dessert was the best I ever had! Can’t wait to go back! And the best part was Chazz and some of the guys in the show were there having dinner too and came over and we had our picture taken with them!

Everything was great. This was my first time here -- I came for a business lunch -- and I WILL be back. The food was excellent (my guest made several comments about this). the service was fast, efficient, but never obtrusive, and the ambience was wonderful. It was quiet enough for conversation, with a very comfortable feel. Oh, and did I mention? -- the food was excellent!

I will definitely be coming back.

Within moments of sitting down, Chazz Palminteri walked in and sat down for dinner. Having been to some other “famous” people spots and being there were only about 5 tables seated, I would’ve thought a quick “howyadoin” would’ve been nice but the mans busy and as I understand it, he often comes in before a Bronx Tale for a bite. That said, it was so cool to see him!
Service: Good, not great. Our wait staff was nice enough but they were all a bit sleepy. By that I mean no one wowed us or added to the experience. They were all just fine.
Food: I’m a discerning Italian food eater...very good! Salads were tasty, main course cooked to perfection and flavorful and dessert was very nice.
Ambiance is very nice. A cozy and casual environment with small little spaces and nooks but spacious and not congested like some other theatre district restaurants can be. I’d say a tad on the higher priced side when you eat from appies to dessert with a drink or two and coffee ($75-100pp) Overall a really nice evening.

We’ve been wanting to come here for a few years now. Finally had time this past weekend. We were fairly disappointed. We expected the old school design that we saw on a Food show. We weren’t aware that they moved to the new location. We started with Baked clams. Eh. I’ve had better at any itialian restaurant. Not much taste. The presentation was lovely. I ordered the Rack of Lamb with Mashed Potatoes, green beans with mint jelly. The lamb chops had no flavor at all. I had to use for the 1st time in my life the salt and pepper from the table. I actually make them better. When I go out, I expect the restaurant to cook better than I do. The mashed potatoes were actually very good with the green beans. The mint jelly was missing. My husband ordered the salmon with mango salad. Nothing special either. My husband said the wine was very good, unfortunately we never got the name of it from the waiter. The lighting is extremely dark and everyone at each table had to use their cell phone to read the menu. My husband and I came dressed for an elegant night out and also was disappointed that people wore jeans and shorts. Overall...save your money. Sorry Chazz.

Enjoyed the food. Was a little disappointed that Mr Palminteri only stopped at certain tables. The restaurant isn’t that large so I don’t think stopping at a few more tables would have impacted his time.

It was a very nice dinner. For two people it was a little bit noisy and since I was sitting across from my date, it was sometimes difficult to hear him (the tables were too wide). But the service was fantastic (I have never had so many waitors in the same room with me before) and they were extremely attentive. I would have included romantic above but it was too noisy for us.
