We may have a biased opinion as French people, but this restaurant was definitely both too loud and crowded. It may be something common in the US, but by our point of view, this was way too much. I could hardly hear what my wife seated in front of me was saying. But I could tell you all the details, even the unwanted ones, of the life of the group of 8 sitting next to us. In France, it isn't customary to talk to the person sitting at the opposing end of a table of 8. Well, it seems it is in the US, so, again, this is my opinion as a French used to France restaurants. Hope this advice will help the many french tourist to make their choice.

The food was really great, generous portions, the service was good too, the waiter was very caring.

Still, we did not stay long as we couldn't speak together which lacks in interest as a couple. Probably a great place for US customers. Not so much of a great place for those not used to this level of noise.

Cozy, friendly ambiance. Tasty food. We were very rushed having a limited amount of time to get to a show. They were very accommodating and quick (depending on what you order understandably). The clam linguine was delicious as was the seafood pasta. The meat ravioli however seemed a bit bland, nice but not great. Would definitely give it another go and spend more time)have different things. It's a pretty manic place...very busy with a great atmosphere. Recommended

Love this place! Every time I travel to New York I make sure to visit Patzeria. The staff is friendly, the food is fabulous - best spaghetti sauce in the world and meatballs to die for. The only drawback, bread and salad are extra and not included with the meal. Tables are a little close, but that adds to the ambiance. A must stop for a great authentic Italian meal.

I was in NYC for the Thanksgiving day parade and wanted to be sure I had a reservation somewhere. This restaurant was open and accepting reservations for Thanksgiving so I jumped on it. Our reservation was for 7pm, but we arrived early and they sat us anyway! Was grateful for that. The food was terrific. Service was great. Atmosphere is casual. Great menu.

Place was packed on a Monday night and was very loud. We were seated next to a large group that really should have gotten a room somewhere due to their loudness. Food was excellent. I had their signature dish and it did not disappoint. We were waited on by several staff so not sure who got the tip-but have already figured out that NYC must not be known for their service.

Patzeria Family and Friends is an excellent NYC restaurant. We have visited many times and have always left satisfied. The food is delicious, the staff is always attentive and the prices can't be beat. This is one of our favorite places for our after theater meals. It is authentic and it's like my grandmother is in the kitchen. Hats off to the chef!

Fast service. Delicious food. Reasonable prices. We made a reservation for 5:30 and barely a table was taken. By 6:00 every table was taken so reservations are definitely recommended. We both ordered pasta. The red sauce was fresh. I had linguini with clams. The clams were huge and still in the shell. There were more clams already in the pasta. My husband had penne with meatballs. The sauce wasn't watery. They also served garlic bread. We shared a salad- caesar- standard fare. There are no refills on sodas- was charged for a second soda.

I made a reservation and was seated promptly. The overall service was great, the food is my reaction for the 3- star rating.

The garlic bread was burnt and stale, bitter really.

I ordered the lasagna and it tasted days-old, the sauce was good and it had an abundance of cheese on top. I ate it most of our because I was starving, but I wouldn't eat it again.

I was disappointed because l many reviews specifically called out how good the lasagna was, but it hit the mark with me.

We had tickets to see Wicked at the Gershwin Theatre and made reservations at Patzeria for dinner two hours before the show started. We were about 10 minutes late for our reservations but they were able to seat us pretty quickly. I ordered the tomato cheddar soup to share with my daughter and the shrimp parmigiana. My daughter ordered the cheese ravioli. We were served a complimentary order of garlic bread a few minutes after being seated. The bread tasted very fresh and was really garlicky (a positive thing in my mind). Our food took about 45 minutes to arrive and our waiter didn't bother giving us an update, despite the fact that he walked by our table numerous times. We also had to flag him down to get more drinks and he never brought our soup. The food was pretty good - the pasta was cooked perfectly and the marinara was really fresh. The restaurant is two blocks from the Gershwin Theatre, which was very convenient, especially since dinner took so long. It was about a five minute walk from the restaurant. Hopefully our experience with the service was unusual but I would recommend giving yourself plenty of time for dinner if you're panning on going to a show afterwards.
