The tables are so crowded together you can barely get to the rest room. The food was expensive, the pasta over cooked, and the noise level loud. I will not go back.

We had a lovely dinner at Joanne Trattoria. The service was friendly and efficient, the food was good. It is a small place and could get noisy but it did not feel overwhelming.

The place is very cute and intimate.....unfortunately, we ordered the chicken parm and were very disappointed - it was dry and not very tasty - also ordered the meatballs and spaghetti which was good but only got one meatball - could have used another.....

We had a wonderful lunch and thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere and food. Our waiter Taylor was great and the food delicious. I had a frittata with mushrooms, prosciutto, sausage and Gorgonzola but the meatball appetizer was amazing. Highly recommend Joanne’s.

We have been to this restaurant before. Was way more crowded previously and they still let us pick our table. This time just sat us and there were better tables that never filled up. Waiter was very nice but we waited a long time for him to come by to just ask for jam. And then it took a long time to get it. By that time the toast was the only food left on the plate and it was cold. If the restaurant had been busy I could understand, but it was not busy at all. The staff was friendly.

Ambiance and service was solid. The good news stops there. Unfortunately, the food was mediocre at best. The Caesar salad was the highlight. The chicken in the Chicken Parm was dry and chewy. The pasta should have been fresh but wasn’t.
I was really hoping it would be better. It was a busy Friday night so maybe that explains it, but for the money it fell far short of expectation and value.

Restaurant had a lovely ambience, a lovely fire which was ablaze & made the dining area very warm & cosy, however with it being a small venue, seating was on top of one another, so slightly squished! Food was delicious, not one bad meal between our party of 6. Unfortunately we had a miscommunication with our waitress, but the Manager was quick to rectify & was very apologetic. Overall we had a lovely evening.

VERY DISAPPOINTED - had been here a few times in the past and it was OK - but one of their "best sellers" lemon artichoke chicken was awful, TWICE ! we both ordered this dish and it was tasteless and tepid at best, as was the pasta it came with - the second time it was served was just as bad and i had to squeeze a lot of lemon just to get a hint of flavor - the restaurant was not busy but the service personnel didn't come to the back room often and i ended up eating it because i was starving and we would not have had time to find another restaurant and make our movie - it was an unpleasant experience and all we were offered was "i'm sorry" - doubt i'll go back in spite of it's convenient location - i was also surprised that an automatic 20% tip was INCLUDED for 2 people without any notification on the menu that this would be done ?????

Price felt a bit too high for average quality food. Had the chicken parmesan and felt it was flat and the pasta a bit cheap when compared to the menu price. Yes it’s a very nice place with friendly staff but the food honestly felt a bit lacking.

My husband and I came to this restaurant because it looked good and it was close to Lincoln Center where we were going to see The Nutcracker. We ordered the spinach artichoke dip for an appetizer and that was pretty good. Our main courses weren't the best. I ordered the pizza and I felt like all I was eating was cheese (don't think it was fresh mozzarella). I couldn't even finish it, and the sauce was so flavorless. My husband had the Chicken Artichoke dish and the pasta was dry. They could have put more sauce on it. On the brighter side their house wine was good!!

Great atmosphere, food and service good, but they put us in the outdoor room which was heated, and the heater broke and everyone out there was freezing- I think we should have been at least given a free coffee! People were eating with their coats on!it happened after we were seated so it's not like we had a choice to not eat out there.
