We were in nyc for the weekend and wanted to have an authentic New York pizza experience. We were in between broadway shows so we had a limited time window. We walked in and the place was filling up! The ambiance was perfect! We got seated with our reservation right away but had to wait longer than expected to get a drink order. Once we had our servers attention we had a wonderful meal and experience! They were able to accommodate our daughters food allergies as well, no problems! We would definitely dine here again on a future trip!

Patzeria was a cozy Italian restaurant with a comfortable vibe. It’s small and the tables are close together but they manage it well and are friendly and accomodating. The food was very good and our entire mixed group of 11, ages 4 to 68, enjoyed everything from pizza to the special daily entrees.

Whenever we visit NYC we eat here at least once...have had breakfast, lunch and/or dinner on many occasions. Simply put ...the food is always delicious, unpretentious, cozy atmosphere, friendly service..and in walking distance to most of the theatres. It never disappoints!

Looked on open table at the last minute for a place nearby to accommodate a party of 6 and found Patzeria. Once I walked in I realized we had been there about 6 years prior. Needless to say it was a pleasant surprise and they never disappoint!

I can’t say enough about this place. What a gem! I found it on yelp but was also highly recommended by a coworker. I took my 8 & 11 year old daughter’s on a weekend trip to NYC and we all loved the food. It’s good old fashioned authentic Italian at its finest. The place is tiny which adds to the cozy atmosphere but also makes reservations a must! Somehow our reservation came through as 2 instead of 3, but the staff was acoomdating and seated us immediately. The food was delivered to our table quickly and everyone was so warm and friendly.

I had the penne with marinara - classic but soooo good. My daughters split a pizza which they claim was the best they’ve ever had. For dessert - hot chocolate, double chocolate cake (massive serving), canolli and tiramisu - all were delicious.

Overall this place is top notch and I would highly recommend it. It’s almost worth the 3.5 hr drive to NYC to have it again!

Solid Italian food. Reasonably priced, basically the same price you would pay for a meal on long island but, in Manhattan. Service was excellent, we came after a show, but im sure if you came in before they could get you in and out quickly.

Almost everyone in the group was very happy with their food. The pizza was delicious. On person said the caesar salad had too much dressing, but i always ask for the dressing on the side so mine was fine. It was a fun atmosphere. Right in the theatre district, so it filled up very quickly after the matinee let out. Luckily we had reservations so our table was ready for us. The desserts were delicious, and the two people in our group who ordered a latte and a cappuccino said they really know how to make coffee.

Pizza was just ok - burnt bottom yet crust wasn’t crispy. A disappointment given how much good pizza there is in NY. Veal parm was good.

Seating was a bit tight, but the service was excellent. Reasonably priced.

Booked table in advance. Felt very rushed. Hadn’t finished eating appetisers when entrees arrived, waiter just stood there with meal, small table so no room to put them down. We had to ask him to take away and bring back when finished starter, then we’re left waiting for it’s return. We are not slow eaters, quite the opposite. Shame as food was nice, waiters must know that they hadn’t taken plates from appetisers and table not big enough to accommodate all!
