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.

An authentic trattoria - a neighborhood gem. Great choice of pastas. Delicious ravioli and lasagna. First class service and a warm atmosphere. Very good value all round. Well worth a return visit.

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.

Came here with a friend who is always under the gun in terms of time. Ordered the house red (mediocre, but filled the need on a cold day) and the "house specialty" - Lasagna Bolognese. It came with a very limp green salad. And while the lasagne had a good sauce and went down easily, the texture of the pasta was odd: almost as if it was made with potatoes - a strange, loose texture. Easy going down, but I've certainly had better pasta, by far, than this. In addition, it seemed as if there was only one waiter who ended up being very busy and not particularly attentive when we requested the check and indicated that we had a time constraint.
All in all, if you are desperately seeking a lunch place at the last minute, you could fall into the House and be fine. But I wouldn't recommend it for anything other than comfort food and a last-minute choice simply because that would mean I would go out of my way to eat here. And I wouldn't.

This was my second time at House of Lasagne and I have to say, it's a great find. The food is excellent and it's a lovely little restaurant. The actual lasagne portions aren't that big, but they are very filling and I didn't feel deprived at all. $19 got me a glass of wine, a small house salad and an entree of lasagne bolognese. Great deal! My roommate had the spaghetti and meatballs, and the two meatballs were large and tasty!

HOL is a small restaurant but it's cozy and warm. We went Christmas day evening and it was full to capacity but not overcrowded. I will definitely be back.
