OpenTable Diner 
Dined 4 days ago

I made reservations for 5:30 at 5:30 I showed up I got seated to my table and I had service right away the food was fantastic the waiters were fantastic you couldn't ask for anything better the food was cooked you couldn't ask for anything better than this we topped it off with dessert cheesecake and coffee we finished our meal and we walked over to the theater to enjoy a play but I must say one of the best restaurants I've been in in the last 14 years

La comida fue muy buena y el mesero que nos atendio fue muy atento. Celebramos año nuevo en este restaurante y sin duda valio la pena. A pesar que estaba lleno nos hicieron cupo por la reservacion que oreviamente habiamos realizados por este medio.

Bella Mia took great care of us! We were going to an 8PM Theater show (Springsteen On Broadway!) and Bella Mia was perfect! The host (owner?) took great care of us, and we got to the show with plenty of time - it's just a 1/2 block from the Walter Kerr Theater. Thanks to Bella Mia!

The food was delicious. The pizza was good but the pastas that we ordered were even better. The only issue we had was that we never got a designated server so we had to flag down a random employee anytime we needed something. That being said, they took good care of us when we did flag them down and the food came out promptly which is a benefit for those people headed to Broadway shows.

6:15 reservations and a show at 8pm. After we were seated, it took 20 minutes for a waiter to come to our table to take a drink order. After we got our drinks, the waiter took our appetizer and salad order. We put our dinner order in at the same time because we were going to a show and figured it would save time. We got our appetizer and salad in a timely manner. 30 minutes later we had to ask the waiter to check on our meal as it was getting late. He came back with our meal and it was cold. Now it’s 7:35pm They offered to heat it up but we now had 15 minutes to get to our show so we asked for the check. A classy place would have comped the 2 drinks and appetizer and salad. Not here. $50 bill and off to the show starving. So disappointed!!!

After making a reservation weeks in advance we were told at the door that there would be a long wait due to unreservationed guests who were already seated. As we had theater tickets and had an hour window in which to eat any wait would cause issues. The reservation person did get us seated within 20 minutes but our waiter pretty much made us feel unwelcome. He was rude beyond words. He told us we were the ones wasting time by not ordering quickly but there was no way that we would be able to get an entrée under a half hour.We decided to simply get a caprese salad to speed things along after asking the people at the next table (which was practically in our laps) how long it took to get their meals and was told at least 45 minutes. The salad had no flavor and barely any balsamic on it at all. We were about to walk the check due to the total unattentiveness of the waiter, when he magically appeared. Needless to say we did NOT tip and would never think to visit this establishment again should we be in New York.

Food was ok but we had to wait 40 minutes for two dishes: salmon and pasta. We were late for our 6:30 pm appointment.

This was an after show dinner, middle of a Sunday afternoon. Restaurant was quiet, food delicious and service friendly and responsive. Pierro is always gracious and friendly—we look forward to our visits.

Very mediocre. The wine tasted watered down. The food was just edible, not very flavorful. Chose this restaurant because of its proximity to theatre. Would not go again.
