Bella Mia Ratings and Reviews
We ate at Bella Mia after a Broadway performance. One of our favorite menu items is Nonna's lasagne. I enjoy that item so much I find it hard to order anything else. Other members of our party enjoyed their orders equally as much. The restaurant is convenient to Broadway and, for the most part, the staff is helpful and knowledgeable. Definitely a find in a busy area.
My husband and I enjoyed a fabulous authentic Italian meal this evening. The wait staff was friendly, accommodating and right "off the boat". The Olive oil and Salmuni e Formaggi was to die for as were our meals (Orrechiette Pulglise and Capellini Primavera) I truly enjoyed my dinner and was extremely excited that I was able to have a conversation in Italian with real Italians!! Our only complaint is that the bread was not real Italian bread, but rather basic rolls. Oh...and the cappuccino was amazing!! Better then mine!!
The noise level was so quiet!! The service was non-existent. The food was invisible and tasteless. There was no ketchup on the tables The waitress was kind of a stiff. Oh wait.. the restaurant was out of business. So we went to Becco and that was delicious.
I made a reservation at this restaurant about a month ago. It has always been our favorite Italian restaurant in NYC. We went the night of our reservation and were amazed to find that the restaurant was closed and was being turned into a Cuban restaurant. I received no call or email to let me know this. Thankfully, we were able to find another place around the corner that had a table available since we were pressed for time having a show to attend that night.
Pietrasanta is a wonderful restaurant, due in part to its delicious food, and in part to its personalized service. The menu is diversified, with homemade pasta, and many other great choices. They have an excellent prix fixe menu for both lunch and dinner. The wait staff are pleasant and knowledgeable, and the owner, Pietro, is a delightfully charming man who makes the rounds, stopping by each table to make certain every customer is pleased with their meal. They are moving to larger quarters in May 2017, close by, with the same access to the Broadway theaters. Check it out. You won't be disappointed!
Pre-theater dinner and restaurant looked like it had potential but fell short of my expectations. Started with sautéed artichoke hearts which sounded good on the menu but were breaded and soggy. Opted to have pasta since the menu says it's made fresh in house. Really didn't taste like fresh pasta to me but it was ok. Some of the clams served with it were loaded with grit /sand and were inedible. Service was ok. Probably won't go back.
Pietrasanta is easy to walk by, but is a great place for dinner or a weekend afternoon. The wine list is affordable and the food is consistently good. The salmon and the seafood risotto were excellent with sizable portions. It's in a relatively odd stretch of Ninth Avenue, where there are mostly bars, but I recommend the visit.
I was looking for a new restaurant for pre-theater dining a little out of all the hustle and bustle. The restaurant was comfortable, service was excellent, very friendly and the food was great. Gnocchi was deliciousness my husband loved the Bronzino.
I would recommend!!
We have been going to Pietrasanta for many years, the food is consistently good, the staff is always friendly and helpful, the cost is reasonable for a quality NYC theater district dining experience. I guess that is why they have been there for several decades. We'll be back!
Great food and service, perfect for a pre theatre meal. We were asked as soon as we were seated if we were going to a show and what time. Authentic Italian, pasta was excellent. Tables very close together so would not recommend this place for an intimate evening!
Went for a midweek pre theater dinner. The service was excellent. We had the calermari appetisor which was perfectly prepared. For the main course I had the fra diablo seafood pasta. All the seafood was fresh and cooked properly. I would recommend this restaurant
Pietrasanta was a good restaurant to dine at because of its high ratings. That's the main reason I went to Pietrasanta for the first time, and I have to say, the food was very good, just how I thought it would be. The restaurant was a little small, something I expected since we were in the city, but that was okay. The service was good, and even the owner came to our table and greeted us, something you rarely see. The prices were very reasonable, so we didn't spend a lot for quality food, so we were happy in all aspects. I'd definitely recommend Pietrasanta.
