Food was good . This is our second visit , nice holiday atmosphere. Only issue was they charged an over 20 percent service charge. Otherwise would have been a good meal and experience.

They are known for their pizzas but the pappardelle pasta we had was so sublime, I wanted to lick the remaining sauce off the plate.

Beautiful outdoor set up on a quiet street. Friendly, un-rushed service. Tender calamari, flavorful pasta and excellent wine list.

Got there at 2200hrs having booked for that time, was told we can take our seats but that the kitchen would close in ten minutes. It was a quiet night but I thought that it was open till midnight, still we were served and the pizza and service was good.

We live in the neighborhood and typically order in. This time we decided to go to Ovest and eat in. One of the few last places in NYC with that authentic NY vibe. This place was here before there was Hudson Yards! Service here is nothing special but they are efficient. The place needs a bit of a face lift, but that’s part of its charm. You come for the pizza and it’s worth it.

Ovest is one of our favorite spots every time we visit NYC. The gnocchi and pizza are incredible. And we always enjoy the tiramisu. Our waiter, Roberto, was excellent and extremely helpful.

We were meeting friends who were just coming into the city for dinner and didn't want to go too far from Penn Station. Ovest is perfect. We had pizzas and pastas and all tasted great. The atmosphere is very NY, you are close enough to hear a quiet conversation yet you can talk to the people at the end of the table in a big party. Lots to look at, I think there was a TV .
I would def come here again...

Ovest Pizzoteca is a down-to-earth and friendly restaurant, with very helpful and kind staff and serve high quality pizzas and other items on the menu. While I have used as a quick fix for food while in the Chelsea area, I feel it would equally work as a place for a proper sit down meal due to the relaxed ambience and friendly customers. I highly recommend Ovest Pizzoteca.

Originally booked for a party of 7 ($35 p person minimum - no problem), called to change to 5 and 45 minutes earlier (no issues), billed for 7 although 5 and the restaurant was empty. They just took advantage of the situation. We were regulars, not going back. Classic example of tripping over dollars to pick up pennies.

The food was decent, but positioning of the pizza as true to Neapolitan missed the mark as they were not knife-and-fork meals.

Service was a bit off. It took 3 attempts at a drink order to receive the sodas requested.

Overall I felt the experience was pretentious and not worthy of the price. The location was convenient for a pre-event dinner, but based on its own merits, I’m unsure I’d return.

Pizza buonina, peccato: il forno fosse soorco di cenere e quindi sapeva di bruciato, altrimenti sarebbe stata ottima.
E peccato per le migliaia di moscerini che infestano la sala costringendoti a veri e propri combattimenti

We ended up stumbling into this restaurant by mistake and were excited to learn that they had brick oven pizza. Our waiter was extremely informative and friendly and so we were happy that we chose this place- however, our happiness was short lived. After suggesting a "must have" cocktail our waiter completely forgot about us. 30 mins later we had our appetizer and our pizza delivered to us by another wait staff and he still did not show up...nor did our drinks. I finally asked another random person for our waiter and mentioned that our drinks had never shown up- sheepishly, our waiter came by with our drinks "on him". However, by that time we were almost done with our pizza and didn't really even want the drink. The place soon became very loud and busy around the bar area and we decided at that point to just leave as we were really going to lose our waiter by that point. Overall, I would go back as the food was very good- except this time we will sit by the bar- seems as if that's where the wait staff spent most of their time.

Excellent pizza and drinks. Did not try any of their appetizers, salads or pasta. Can be noisy so need to factor that in.

They took amazing care of my group of eight during the blackout! The restaurant had lights but oddly the kitchen and bathrooms did not. But the staff was not frazzled and treated us so well on a busy Saturday night. Thank you!
