My mom and I went to here for a pre-theater dinner and they delivered. I loved the Salmon and my mom liked her lasagna. We also ordered tiramisu and it was excellent. The service was on point. They had a 2 for 1 wines which we didn't know about. It was a little on the loud side, but the service and good compensatt We will return soon.

Love the pizzas here. Always changing my favorite, but lately it has been the pizza di enzo. It's a margarita pizza with a bunch of raw arugula topped off with thin cut slices of prosciutto and they offer a spicy olive oil that is just perfect with it. All of the pizzas are great in their own way.

Who can forget the two for one martini deal which goes all night. The blood orange and passion fruit are my favorite, but one of my favorite servers there offered us a blueberry and jalapeno one that they had special that week and I could not resist. Spicy and sweet, they should have it every week.

Still doing things right in midtown.

We were visiting from New Orleans for the first time. We come from a foodie city, this is the best Italian food we had in New York City. The food was presented very well, smelled and tasted delicious. The server we had was awesome. Overall, the whole thing was very nice.

Had a Caesar salad. It was beautifully prepared and appeared to be a head of romaine lettuce layered with dressing and topped with toasted Parmesan cheese. Anchovies and kalamata olives were on the side. The Calabrese pizza (pepperoni) and the margharita pizza were delicious. Super thin and crispy crust. Square pizzas full of flavor. Not bad on the price side. The wine list appeared to have a verity of wines. My friend and I enjoyed it very much. The service was friendly and attentive. We will come back to try more food.

Enjoyed the food and the service was very good. The noise was ridiculous. The bar scene was very energetic, but having tables right next to it is not a good idea.

My wife & I celebrated our 5 year anniversary at this midtown Italian restaurant. I love Italian food & it is done well here. Working in midtown, my wife comes here sometimes after work for the 2 for 1 martinis. They are tasty & will loosen you up. But the real love is in the food. We shared a portabello mushroom pizza as an appetizer that was delicious. For entrees, we had a penne vodka pasta & a mushroom risotto. They were incredible & such big portions. We left full, but happy. We will definitely be back sooner than our next anniversary.

Great informal restaurant with the perfect balance of fun and delicious! We were there on 2 for 1 martinis and really enjoyed the special. The pizzas were thin (as we like them) and able to be shared.

Food is always delicious and consistent - excellent place for drinks & cocktails with many "two for one" choices. Been there many times and keep going back. Never had a bad experience. Just one thing - the noise level is kind of high.

Delicious pizza to our table within 10 minutes of ordering! Service was very attentive. Great place after cycling all day in Central Park!

my colleague and i were in town for work and the hotel staff recommended pazza notte - which was conveniently one block from our hotel. it was very busy and the tables are so close to one another so it was hard to have a quiet or private conversation. the food was ok - unique flatbreads. amazing bruschetta. our waiter was kind, but we rarely saw him. overall this place is just ok. nothing special and probably won't visit when i'm in town again.

Used to be my favorite restaurant in NYC. Looked forward to 2 for 1 martinis -- they were not as good as before--kind of weak. They took the wild mushroom pasta off the menu -- my favorite. Disappointed because I expected great.

While the food (watermelon salad was delicious) and service great, they could not make up for the noise level. Could not have a normal conversation - perhaps lunchtime would be better.

Haven't been here in years! But that was then, when the food was good enough to overlook the BAD service.
So we went back for a favorite oldie, Papardelle, Mushrooms and Truffle Oil. Sadly, no longer on the menu...

But some things never change. The moment we were seated, we realized that (GASP!), the service still sucked! Unfortunately, for us, the food sucked too. We ordered Mussels but sent them back because they smelled awful. Our Penne Vodka never came, and only after flagging down our lousy waiter, he placed the order; 20 addtnl minutes later, we received reheated, burnt Penne Vodka.

Too many Italian restaurants in NYC to deal with noisy crowded, restaurants with zero customer service. I'd rather pay for full price martinis!

We were a group of 7, loved the food and the drinks (both the happy hour and the quality of the drinks). Server was not good, very poor service probably because he knew he didn't have to work for his tip. Nice Italian restaurant otherwise.
