An overall great spot for special occasions, with exceptional value for the price.

My girlfriend mentioned an Italian restaurant she wanted to eat at again but couldn't remember the name. Her words to describe the place were Williamsburg, prefix dinner package with unlimited drinks, multiple course plates and delicious food. After some research, I found Patrizia's to be the spot! And they have a Manhattan location!

One gentlemen in particular was very attentive about when to bring dishes, making sure our dining experience perfect. After asking and finding out that it was a special dinner for us, he brought out some dessert with sparklers. :). Added service that we appreciated.

The place was packed but the servers were making their rounds to make sure everyone was attended to.

There were only two dishes that we thought weren't spectacular (but not bad)(not everything can be amazing), but the remaining 7 dishes hit home! Among two people, we finished a larger pitcher of sangria, so we didn't even have a chance to open the large bottle of wine that was included.

I'm a huge fan and will be back for more!

This location was LOUD - I think it’s because of the acoustics- noise just bouncing off the wall. It was overwhelming at first and I was going to leave but fortunately my late reservation meant guests were leaving. Outside of that the food and service were amazing and we even got complimentary desert! The tiramisu was AMAZINGGG

Good as per usual. Lot’s of food, lot’s of drinks. Great service although this time it felt a little rushed. You can’t beat $49 all you can eat and drink though.

After having to wait almost 25 minutes when I had made a reservation 2.5 weeks in advance when I got to the restaurant I was then escorted to a shared table with another couple and grouped at a table for four right next to the bathroom. This was supposed to be a romantic experience for my boyfriends birthday which ended up as an awkward experience at a table with two random strangers and him constantly getting hit in the back by drunk people and staff passing in back of him to get to the bathroom and kitchen. After complaining about the seating arrangement I was told I would receive a new table once a table for 2 opened up. Of course, a table for two opened up a couple minutes later right next to us and we were not relocated. I have been to another location before so I know how the food tastes and comes and was given a plate of calamari that clearly had been someone elses. I received plates of food that were cold and out of order with the menu and did not even get coffee. Getting a hold of my waiter was impossible and he had no concern for how uncomfortable my boyfriend was constantly getting hit in the back by people passing by. I was embarrassed by this experience and would not recommend this location to anyone. After telling the waiter it was our birthday he came to our table and made no effort to even sing for us like I have seen at other Patrizias. I regret going to this location to celebrate and wonder if I should even give the Long island location a chance again after this terrible experience. Also, prior to us even letting the waiter know we had an NYU ID for the discount advertised he gave us the check and being that our waiter was not present I couldnt get in touch for a price adjustment. I really was looking forward to surprising my boyfriend with a royalty like experience other Patrizias provide with there family style option and this was nothing even close to that.

Not for a romantic Italian meal. 'Party atmosphere' upstairs with groups of 20+ sat around us, dance music so loud we could hardly hear each other and someone flicking the light switch on and off as a strobe substitute. Amazing food which we will continue to order take out, but will never be back otherwise.

Food was delicious and came out fast. The service was pretty good. But it is definitely a restaurant for large groups (10+) and on a Saturday night there was loud dancing music playing by 7:30pm. We were pretty much the only small table and I think got rushed out to sit the next big group. Would come again but either with a larger party or not on a weekend night.

Soups and pizza and most pastas are delicious, chicken dish was a bit overcooked. A local place for families and a gathering spot for many college students a bit later. Generous portions. Friendly staff.

We came here before the dinner crowd and ordered two dishes- a chicken dish and a pasta. The chicken was lukewarm and the pasta was cold and flavorless. The service was good- they cleared the dishes quickly. I was pretty disappointed because my previous experiences here were good. I will think twice before coming back.

Vorausschicken möchte ich vielleicht, dass wir erfahrene Italienfahrer sind und die italienische Küche sehr schätzen und auch in New York schon einige Lokale ausprobiert haben. Dies hier mit allen Höhen und Tiefen. Darüber hinaus muss ich noch erwähnen, dass ich natürlich kein "Gourmet" bin, der nur in Sternelokale geht bzw. solcherlei Bewertungsmaßstäbe anlegt.

Zusammen mit Freunden haben wir hier das 60 Dollar Menü genossen und hier habe ich mein bestes Essen in New York bislang überhaupt genossen. Alle Meeresprodukte waren frisch zubereitet (Muscheln, Oktopus, Scampi, Lobster usw) und wurden uns vom Besitzer mit Bezugsort serviert. Die Fleisch- (Steak und Lammkarree) und Pastaprodukte waren ebenfalls hervorragend und getopt wurde das durch die guten Weine (hier hatte ich zunächst einen Flaschenwein bestellt, bevor ich wusste, dass wir das Menü nehmen und der Chef hat diesen Wein dann automatisch mit einbezogen, obwohl dies so sicherlich nicht gedacht war) und den absolut netten Service. Insgesamt hatten wir ca. 12 Gänge und selbst unsere Freundin, die keine große Freundin von Fischprodukten ist, hatte am Ende des Tages ihre wahre Freude.

Der Chef und der Service kamen immer wieder an unseren Tisch und wir konnten uns in freundlicher und lockerer Art austauschen, ohne den Eindruck zu haben, dass dies nicht ehrliche gemeint sei.

Kurz: Wenn Italiener in New York dann unbedingt Patriziats und sich hier einfach auf den Geschmack und die Beratung des Chefs verlassen. Ich komme auf jeden Fall bei meinem nächsten Besuch dort wieder vorbei und werden evtl. mein Hotel sogar etwas näher am Restaurant wählen.

H.K. mit Freunden aus Erding bei München

We had a reservation for 7:30. When we got there, there was a long line of people waiting to be seated. I told them about our reservation made under Open Table. They told us it would be about 20 minutes for an outside table, but only a few for inside and that they would get us seated ASAP. We didn't mind to be seated inside so we waited. The host - I don't remember his name - was extremely accommodating and friendly! He was actually able to find us a table outside in just a few minutes, which we were grateful for after all - there was some reunion party going on inside and we could tell it was very loud. The food was fantastic and our waiter brought out the food very quickly.

Too loud for casual customers. We asked to sit outside where it was more quiet and even though there were 3 open tables, we were not accommodated.

The BEST restaurant ever. I went here for my birthday with friends and the whole vibe of the restaurant is amazing. Everyone is having a genuine good time and the staff are so friendly and accommodating. Two people in my party had dietary restrictions and the staff made sure everyone had food they were satisfied with. Could not recommend this place more. GO HERE for a great night out with friends, you will not regret it

Der Service und das Essen sind sehr gut. Das Preis-Leistungsverhältnis ist meines Erachtens absolut in Ordnung. Allerdings kann es im Restaurant vom Geräuschpegel sehr laut sein. Sofern man lieber in einer ruhigen Atmosphäre sein Essen genießen möchte, sollte man einen Tisch im Außenbereich wählen oder ein anderes Etablissement aufsuchen.
Alles in allem ist das Restaurant aber sehr empfehlenswert.

We were not greeted upon arrival. The person who sat us down states does not speak English. Sat with water and bread for 10 minutes before waiter came and asked if we were ready to order not to mention we never received the menus. It was a disaster. They never changed plates for us in between dishes for family style.

Suggestion - they should remove 11 pm reservations since they are very unfriendly and not willing to serve you at this hour.

My friends bday dinner was ruined.

I have eaten at Patrizia's many times and always come away satisfied. The only disappointing aspect of our dinner was that the coal fired oven for pizza has been out of commission for months. I would always get a great coal fired pizza as an appetizer for the table and then indulge in one of their great entrees. I am hoping they get that oven fixed so I can enjoy their amazing pizzas as well.

Food was good. Service was a little off. Place was not crowded, but we had to get waiter's attention. Pizza oven wasn't working. Got someone else's check. Have been there before and everything was fine. Maybe just an off night. Wrote in reservation that we were celebrating a birthday. That was ignored, even though we ordered a dessert.

The restaurant is more of a pizza/ restaurant, although the pizza oven has not been working in weeks???? Service was good and food was ok. The noise level was extremely loud. During the warm weather they have tables outside which I would suggest you sit at, unless you don’t mind the noisy inside.
