Patrizia's is a real gem! We've been going for years, and it is one of our absolute favorite family restaurants. The food is always scrumptious, comes out promptly, the service is always friendly and excellent, and there is a warm, inviting atmosphere. They even treated us to free desserts (which were delicious)! We love Patrizia's.

Took some of my staff there for a dinner after exceeding one of our company goals. Great energy, great food, great atmosphere - we opted for outdoor seating and the weather was absolutely perfect for it. Only thing that was not the best was the service. Our waiter had actually been rude to my staff before I arrived, he wouldn’t come back and check on us - the place was definitely packed so I know that can be hard, but we had to keep looking for him, and he was clueless as to who ordered what and was just throwing plates on the table asking who ordered this. Will probably come back and give it another try to see if we just got a waiter having a bad day because the service was the only thing that killed my experience.

We booked due to the need for a large group outdoor dining and we were forced to do the prix fixe menu. We were willing to order a la carte for everyone but they also had another 4 large parties and it was not allowed. The wait staff was also gruff and we did not receive requests for a long time.

Group of 6 for late lunch. Sat inside, quick & attentive service. Had salad, apps, pizza & chicken panini sandwich. All very good — Pizza crust was really good! Will definitely go back again when in the area.

Went for a Mother’s Day brunch and ended up forced to indulge in dinner at 1 in the afternoon. The meal was truly underwhelming and bland. Not the experience we hoped for today. Went hoping for brunch that supposedly ended at 1, though their site stated it’d end at 3. Food looked pleasant but I assure you, everyone at the table was displeased.

We had a really great lunch here to celebrate my daughter’s first communion. The staff was so so nice and really took great care of us. They really made it so special for us. The pizza is amazing but the service is worth the experience alone. I would definitely recommend.

The best value for your money in Manhattan... From Jose , the manager , all the way through the waiters and busboys the service was great... Everything we ate was delicious... You cannot eat all the food they bring out on the family meal plan... I have been to a # of Patrizia’s and never came away disappointed... Whether it is a small or large group you can’t go wrong going here... Mike M Massapequa NY

Our group left because it felt like a super spreader event in the restaurant. I understand that businesses are doing what they can to keep their doors open, but the disregard for covid capacity rules is unfair to the other restaurants who are losing money to keep their employees and customers safe and healthy by following the rules.

Been dining there since it opened. Always good food at reasonable prices. Last time, the management forgot to let Oprn Table that I was there. OT e-mailed me not happy that I was a no show. I wrote back that I was indeed there, identified myself, and told the time of the res. OT got in touch with management and straightened it out. It was annoying and shouldn’t have happened. I will still be a regular customer.

Great food but very lax in their enforcement of Covid protocols. Customers walking around without masks, kids running around close to other tables. I would not dine here again except outdoors.

I have been dining at Patrizia’s since they opened in my neighborhood (2nd Ave location). I have always enjoyed the food — tasty with generous portions. They have been handling the Covid situation well, both indoors and outside. I was really turned off the other day when I was told by a server — perhaps acting as a manager as well — that we can only have the table for 90 minutes. He stated that it was part of the NYC regulations for indoor dining. I had heard nothing about that restriction. When I returned home, I searched the web and found nothing about time limits. I then called the complaint number to inquire if a 90 minute seating limit was in order. I was told there is no such regulation Catherine server/manager looked me right in the eye and lied! If he simply asked that we try to vacate the table within 90 minutes, it would be appreciated as they need to turn the tables over so they can have more guests. That made complete sense to me and I would happily have complied — which I did anyway because 90 minutes was more than enough time for me to enjoy a meal and conversation. I overtip because these are hard times. I don’t like being lied to. The next time I’m there, I will tell the server/manager that I checked and he blantently lied to me.
