    Pizza was so good last time I decided to buy two to take home...amazing reheated in a pan with robust olive oil....bottom gets crispy keep covered while warming then poor the hot olive oil on the top at end.... Definitely trying a new dish next time and taking 2-3 pizzas to go. I've had the artichoke chicken dish, the Parm, the spaghetti and meatballs, calamari, spinach side, and the tiramisu...trying the veal next time

    Great family dinner and with a terrific live singer too. The calamari and house salad combination was delicious. Each alone are very good but together even better. The linguini with white clam sauce was delicious and the sea bass was truly superb. We loved it all and the service was also excellent.

    Portion size is excellent. Chicken Marsala was very good. The Eggplant Parm was a bit bland. Good service. The best thing about the restaurant is the atmosphere, just very homey and comfortable.

    We arrived for our reservation at 4:30 and we were seeing a show at the Met at 7:00. We ordered appetizers and entrees snd were still waiting for our entrees at 6:10. After inquiring twice they said it would be another 5 or 10 minutes. The service was very inattentive and they seemed very short staffed. When our food finally came around 6:15 only 1/2 the table was served and a few minutes later a couple more dishes arrived. The only dish that didn’t arrive was for our 10 year old who ordered spaghetti with pasta. When it finally arrived a few minutes later, it was penne with butter, not spaghetti. My mom’s steak - ordered medium well was served rare - they did take it off the bill when I brought it to their attention. I had been here a couple times before. Something is really off there. It had the feeling of a restaurant that wasn’t doing well which is a shame because the food is good snd it’s close to Lincoln center.

    Unfortunately our experience wasn't great. And we've had a lot of great experiences there in the past! We were ignored when we walked in for our 5:15 reservation. We were finally seated in the back patio. It was freezing! My son had to keep his WI ter coat on the entire time. One appetizer came before we even got our drinks. Second app didn't come so we had to ask for it. It came with dinner. After 6:30! We got there at 5:15. And the prosciutto app was all melon and very little meat so way overpriced. The lemon artichoke, which is the only dish I've ever gotten, didn't taste the same. I never send negative feedback but it really was a terrible experience.

    HORRIBLE service. We waited 20 minutes, and then had to ask for water. Food was mediocre, and very over priced based on the quality. We asked for steak very rare, and it came medium well. We didn’t even bother to send it back bc we had already been there 90 minutes and were tired of dealing with the place. We will never return.

    Girlfriend date!!! Two friends and I went here before the Nutcracker at Lincoln Center and it was a perfect spot. The food was OK — the lemon artichoke chicken and the white truffle gnocchi were total hits with my friends, but I was stuck with two sides bc there were barely any vegan options. They have one vegan ravioli, but trying to have a lite meal, I got the side broccoli rabe and the roasted potatoes. All was yummy, but too much oil on the broccoli rabe made the meal seriously heavy… The service was FABULOUS — Michael was lovely!! And the manager was such a nice guy, very present and excited to have it full. The comedian and singer were a no from our group. The restaurant itself is so cute and the vibe is very old school Italian, it doesn’t need all of those side acts!!! Great spot pre-theater :)

    We come to Joanne’s every time we are in NYC, was very disappointed with the service and our seafood risotto was missing the main ingredients of lobster and shrimp. The waiter brought out our shrimp 1/2 way through the meal and the same with our cocktails. I think this will be our last dinner here!

    Wonderful lunch at Joanne Trattoria. The Joanne salad was so fresh and delicious. The gnocchi with mozzarella and marinara sauce was out of this world. And the warm bread pudding with banana cream was amazing. My server Amir was absolutely awesome, and made certain that everything was perfect. I look forward to returning soon.

    One of the worst dining experiences I've had. Extremely loud party and I say this with the caveat that noise doesn't usually bother me - but I've also never been in this situation; it was so loud and obnoxious that people were asking to move. We spoke to waitstaff about it and rather than address it, they actually encouraged them. What's worse, our service was terrible because they catered to that loud group.

    I have been going to Joanne's regularly for a dozen years, usually before a performance at Lincoln Center. The last few times, the quality and variety of food has been going down-down-down. There is so little variety mow, and very few of the offerings are interesting or enticing. We ordered a salad/appetizer which never came. The salmon course was boring and dry as sawdust; the pasta was gloppy. The bread was stale as could be. We asked for a wine cooler for our white wine three times but never got one. Apart from the food, the ambiance was not very uncomfortable. The jazz singer was quite good, but so loud that we were unable to converse. When did music become a necessity here? Joanne's has clearly become an "events" space--full of huge tables of indiscriminate diners. We couldn't get out fast enough. You might be better off going to an Olive Garden! We will never return here, sadly.

    The pre-fix lunch special is now served until 6pm : it is an incredible value at 19.99 with enough to eat. We had a small, fresh and cheese loaded salad, chicken parm with a side of spaghetti and with excellent tomato sauce, both accompanied with a glass of wine. We ate outside on the enclosed patio so it was quiet. Delicious food - worth every penny!

    We were so excited to come here. Service was awful. Never got our bread. But reading the reviews it’s probably better that we didn’t get any. Appetizers came out before we got water. The portion of my linguini and vodka sauce was a side of pasta at best. One spoonful of pasta for $20. Please Joanne, take my hand and take your name off of this restaurant. It’s horrible. I feel bad cause me and my boyfriend are huge gaga fans. Very very disappointed and sad that the reviews on here are very misleading Millions of restaurants in NYC. Don’t waste your time here.
