Great food & service! Great place for group lunches
Affordable white tablecloth dining.....practically impossible in this day and age. Patricia’s does it with style!
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.
waitress good....baked clams bland cold bread shrimp scampi bland overcooked watery
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.
There is nothing not to love about this restaurant. Consistently delicious food and wonderful service. Always happy to dine here.
Frank the owner is such a gentleman and Mike was our server and was amazing! They got the order right, there were allergies at the table and everyone was taken care. Would highly recommend the restaurant!!
The food at Patricia’s is always consistently delicious. We get seated on time and the staff is always pleasant and friendly. It’s a neighborhood gem
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!!!
Spaghetti sauce tasted like fish. My wife was not happy.
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.
3rd or 4th time here, consistently satisfying in all aspects, will return...BYOB makes it a good value
We all enjoyed our visit to this neighborhood gem. Cuisine, service and atmosphere was on target.
Amazing Service and Delicious Food!!
Food was delicious and service was excellent. We will be going back!
Had a salmon special that was one of the best I've ever had.
Patricia's is a great little gem tucked away in a shopping center but don't let their location fool you. Bustling atmosphere is backed up by a great menu and great service. I look forward to our next visit!
Frankie has a decadent menu and wonderful staff. Always top of our list for date night and special occasions. Never disappoints
Five Star today and every day. All was great. Greetings, service and of course the cuisine.
Love Patricia’s! Great atmosphere, service and food!
Food was excellent and our server Katie was extremely knowledgeable and very friendly. We will be back!!
Food is always excellent. The owner is always there making sure things run well. It is sometimes a little loud when it is super busy, but a great vibe nonetheless. It is a favorite amongst many friends and family.
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!
Menu and food were very good. Quite pricey for location and style. $20 for an app (though good) is excessive. Being a BYO was a nice touch.
Delicious food and very attentive staff. Nice that owner stops by tables to chat with patrons.
As usual everything was spot on. The service was extra special. The Chilean Sea Bass special was over the top good.
Great food but better service
This is a lovely restaurant. Staff are cordial and attentive.
Lunch was good but very pricey with pasta dishes $20 plus.
☺️A great food place ,but tables on top of each other and therefore the place is extremely noisy.
Meatballs were excellent
Food was fresh and flavorful
Would definitely go again
Food was great. Service was excellent. Server Michael was extremely pleasant and attentive.
Food was very good. It was quite noisy due to the amount of tables in the room. I was shocked by the amount of people there, despite the bad weather. Make your reservations days in advance.
Outstanding Italian cuisine that never disappoints. Our go-to spot for any occasion. Highly recommended.
If you are in or near Holmdel make this your choice for dinner.
Surprising to be in a strip mall, but such great food! Always crowded, make a reservation! Will definitely go back!
Went to Patricia’s to celebrate a family birthday. We had a wonderful experience! Great service and great food, couldn’t ask for anything better.
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.
