Came here for Sunday lunch specifically to try Nonna's Sunday sauce.. and was unfortunately disappointed. It was too bad, since we have been here for dinner, and aside from it being on the pricier side for a Middletown restaurant, we were impressed. The Sunday sauce, which naturally only is served on Sundays, although I don't know why is comprised of 2 meatballs (good), 2 sausage (great!) 2 Braciole (ehh), and some pasta, and I mean only some pasta. Sauce.. maybe a small ladle full, we had to ask for more, twice! Its called Sunday SAUCE, and they skimp on the sauce? It's served in a huge pot, and about 1/8th full.. For $30 I would have expected it to be much fuller, why even bother putting it in a pot? All in all, it's a good restaurant with higher than normal prices, especially for Italian food.

Good southern Italian food. We especially enjoyed the stuffed zucchini flowers. Appetizer portions are large enough to share. Disappointing that entrees are not accompanied by any vegetables. We were quite surprised to be presented with veal piccata that consisted of 2 fillets of veal covered with capers sitting alone on the plate rather than presented with at least a garnish portion of a vegetable...the accompanying pasta came in a separate bowl. Both were tasty but not as well presented as the appetizers had been.

Patricia's did not disappoint. The food and service were great, and we love the BYOB option. Everyone was very interactive, and the waiters and bus boys were on top of their game. I ate the Rigatoni Fra Diavolo. It was delicious!!!

We went for a celebratory lunch on a Sunday and it was quiet which we enjoyed. Service was fantastic, ambiance was wonderful, and food was good. I had the gluten free pizza, it was good but not amazing. My husband had the regular Patricia’s pizza which he said was outstanding. My 3 year old got the kids chicken and fries. Initially I thought it was somewhat overpriced at $12 but it was a HUGE portion and our awesome server treated her to a free ice cream with sprinkles which was sweet. We split an affagato for dessert and it was out of this world. Overall, an incredible lunch out that was classy for grown ups but also great for kids. Will def go back.

It’s been a long time since I’ve dressed up for Italian food and this restaurant was worth walking in the rain for! Service was awesome: attentive but not intrusive. Food was sensational with generous portions. Really a fantastic experience and I’m trying to figure out when I can get back there.

I had the Seafood Salad and the Angry Lobster - so fresh tasting and absolutely delicious. My husband ordered the lamb chops and they were tender and scrumptious. We have never been disappointed with any of their selections. My family and friends feel the same way. Always totally satisfied. Would highly recommend Patricia's!

We have been to Patricia's on many occasions and food is consistently great! Service the past two visits has been lacking unfortunately. The last time we went was a birthday celebration in September with 5 in our party. We asked for regular water 3 times only to have the bus boy fill the glasses 1/4-1/2 way. Then, after silverware was taken after appetizer and entree brought out, my daughter asked for new silverware waiting and waiting as her food got cold and ours too as we didn't want to start without her. After flagging him down, we got the silverware. We just chalked it off to a busy night.

This past week, two of us returned for a 5:15 reservation and we're promptly seated. My daughter recognized our bus boy (not the same as before) as a friend and he quickly brought water and bread. Then, we waited...and waited. Two tables immediately next to us and seated AFTER us were quickly addressed by their male waiter, in addition to the bus boy. For us, 14 minutes passed with no wait staff in sight. A very observant waitress spotted us looking around and came to ask if the order had been taken by our waiter and I responded no and that I didn't know who he was. She said she knew who has our table but couldn't locate him so she took our order and tended to us the remainder of our visit...great service from her! Very attentive!

We will return, but it's the small attention to service details that can make or break a dining experience.
