The Lasagna Bolognese, for instance, is $12 and includes a small salad with first-rate bread. Travelers from nearby hotels and neighborhood residents have keep this place hummming..."

Needed to find a nice restaurant near Grand Central to meet up with friends visiting from Australia. House of Lasagna had a menu that appealed to all the guests. The service was tremendous, atmosphere was pleasant, we could carry on a conversation with anyone seated at the table.

We had a very nice dinner and would definitely recommend the restaurant to other diners.

Was very disappointed with the white sangria. It tasted just like seltzer water. We got the $21 pitcher. Not worth it.
The food was ok, we got the express lunch. Service was attentive.

We were pleasantly surprised at how delicious the lasagna was! It's a small spot but cozy. Owner's sister was quite helpful with the menu. Was pleased that they offered a taste of the wine of the night before we bought it. We'll definitely go back!

I have been walking by the restaurant for years and had no expectations that I would like it based solely on the name but, having unexpectedly gone there for a late dinner, was very pleasantly surprised. The lasagna is really good, the prices are reasonable and the service is friendly.

Perfect place to catch up with a friend after work. It's a cozy place. The fried calamari was delicious, the lasagna was good- not great, and I would have liked fresher warmer bread. Other than that, the service was great, the waiter was excellent,& friendly and For NYC, the price was reasonable. I will definitely return!

Service was excellent but the house special "favorite " lasagna was just average and the lasagna noodles were mushy. The Caesar and Apple/Gorgonzola salads were, unfortunately, tasteless. Was expecting the lasagna to knock my socks off, but sadly it didn't.

Not sure why this restaurant participates on OpenTable when they 1) tell you flat out they don’t take reservations if you call the place directly (not even suggesting you need to make it through OpenTable) and 2) have you wait 25 minutes after your reservation time to be seated. Bottom line, the food was okay and the service very good.

I had made reservations for 5 people at 7 pm. It was crowded when we got there. There was a lady at the front handling the checks and take out deliveries (possibly the owner?). I walked up to her and when she turned around, I simply said that I have a reservation at 7. She snapped at me and said “You’ll have to wait. I’m in the middle of something.” So much for a welcoming greeting. So I said “please, take your time”. I thought it customary to let the host(ess) know upon arrival that you’re there. I understand that she felt overwhelmed because the restaurant was busy (she should be glad to have that problem, no?), but snapping at customers doesn’t seem to make good business sense.

After a 25 min wait, we were finally seated. It should be noted that because we were 5 people, the only table big enough to accommodate us was the last one in the back. That table was occupied at 7 pm but the people sitting there finished and left at 7:05. It took 20 min to set the table up??? Once we were seated, it took 10 min to get menus and bread for the table.

After we got menus, the service was much much better. I won’t blame our waiter, a very nice young guy who was attentive and quick to respond if we needed anything. He really was doing his best and if anything saved the evening, it was him. After all, let’s be honest here. Service is a key factor in the overall dining experience.

Sadly, this was my first and last visit to this restaurant.

I come here every time I stay in the city for the NYC marathon. The food is always good and the service is great. You can get home-style Italian food in a cozy environment. It's nothing fancy or showy but it's exactly what I wanted. Also, there was only one waitor but he made sure everyone felt taken care of. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a sweet neighborhood spot that the locals frequent.

I went to this restaurant at last minute once I found out my uncle was in town for the night. The waiter was extremely attentive, continuously refilled our waters, and never made us feel rushed to leave the restaurant even when the restaurant was completely filled with people. Very reasonably priced, flavorful food.
