We went there on a recent Sunday at Noon, before seeing a Broadway matinee.
Food was ok, but uninspiring. The pasta sauce was somewhat watery, and the waiter somewhat indifferent.
Not bad, not overly good. A decent value but as I said uninspiring. In our opinion, there are many other, better Italian restaurants.

For 26 years I have been coming to Da Tommaso. I used to live in the neighborhood and was able to visit multiple times a week. For the past decade, I always have Da Tommaso on my list of restaurants when I visit NYC. It is a can't miss spot and makes you feel like you are in Italy. There is no spot better.

Food was satisfactory. More of a home-style type of cooking.
Service was good and the table for six was very comfortable.
Quite convenient to the theater we attended. In fact, many of the show's cast members dined here that night.
Overall, a pleasing experience and I will dine there again and recommend this restaurant to family and friends.

Good but not Great. We were looking for an Italian restaurant near the theater district before a show and found Da Tommaso on Open Table. We arrived early and were seated immediately. Service was very good and attentive. I ordered Caprese as an appetizer and tomatoes were hard, mozzarella bland. I ordered a salmon-pesto dish that was a special for the evening and it was very good. My date ordered eggplant and said it was tasty. I also ordered cheesecake that was tasty and the waiter offered a wine that I thought was well-priced. All in all everything was fine but nothing special.

Arriving on a cold day ahead of opening we were invited inside and treated graciously. Wait staff was very attentive, green house salad was nicely dressed, but eggplant parm. was chewy.
Assorted desserts were spectacular. Proximity to the theaters makes it an ideal location, but I would not recommend a restaurant that can't make an eggplant at least as good as my own.

Excellent service. When we told the waiter to let us be, he did. When we were ready to order, they were right there. Nice, clean, quiet, and reasonable prices. I had the veal parm, it tasted good but was a little chewy. Other meals of the party were good. I'd go back. Had a martini, great and a nice portion. J. S. Phila

Excellent food. We had the baked clams & Caprese as appetizers, and Eggplant Parm & Seafood Pasta (capellini) for Mains. All were great. It’s refreshing to receive pasta cooked el dente rather than over cooked. Service was attentive, but not over bearing. Tiramisu for dessert was very tasty and a generous portion size. All in all, a great value in NYC. Reservations are highly recommended.

Had the worst service ever. When we sat down no one brought us menus or anything. Eventually we received menus and a basket of mediocre stale bread. The waiter came back and rudely said ok order. While every other table was read the special, our table was even offered the opportunity to hear specials. Then we ordered our entrees and one appetizer for the table to share. The waiter seemed annoyed we didn’t order more food and never once came back to the table until the end of the meal. It took a very long time to receive 3 simple pasta dishes. The fettuccine Alfredo was outstanding while the other pastas left something to be desired. Getting extra bread took three requests to a busboy and another tables servers. My family generally LOVES dessert and throughout the meal we saw waiters bring over a dessert tray and explain to the tables what the options were. When our plates were taken away, the waiter comes over and said do you want dessert? My mom asked what do you have and he proceeded to just name 4 desserts. At that point we were beyond frustrated and wanted to just go. There were plenty of other desserts on the tray and no reason for our waiter to be so rude and practically ignore our table. We will probably not go back despite the pasta being pretty good.

Went to this restaurant after a Saturday matinee. Arrived at 5:15; had reservations but there were only a few diners seated. It did begin to fill up around 5:45-6:00. My husband and I shared a caeser salad and both ordered "specials". The salad was good, but was heavily dressed with a thick caeser dressing; could have used a bit less. My husband had a stuffed pork chop which was delicious; very tender. I had a shrimp and broccoli rabe dish served over rigatoni pasta in a garlic wine sauce which was just "meh". The sauce was tasty, but the shrimp were not whole; they were cut into small pieces (probably three whole shrimp in the whole dish), and the pasta seemed like it came out of a Ronzoni box. Granted, I did not ask if the pasta was homemade, but I expected better quality. Not a bad restaurant, but I will try elsewhere next time.

We got there at 5:30pm and there was one other couple there... by 6pm completely packed. Definitely make reservations. I had the recommended special which was a stuffed pork chop with prosciutto, smoked cheese and porticini mushrooms with a Marsala sauce... excellent !!! This place is not big but very quaint... looking forward to going back.

We arrived at Da Tommaso's for lunch and it was our first visit. The restaurant was empty except for two people at the bar, but the waiter would not let us sit at a four person table stating that it was "reserved". However, the two person table was very cramped and only two other couples, a single person and a party of three arrived later and did not have reservations. The two other couples were seated at four person tables which we found annoying. However, the food was excellent and the service was good which helped to make the experience more enjoyable. The noise level was also quiet due to there being few other customers. Not certain how the noise level would be during dinner service given the rather small space of this restaurant. We would recommend it for lunch.

Stopped in for lunch right after making the reservation and it seemed like they weren’t ready for us. Food was very good if not a little salty. We ordered “House wine” without realizing the price and $11 a glass is steep for house wine. Service was excellent.
