Went here for a pre-concert dinner. Cozy place, tight seating, great wait staff. Our dinner was above average. The lunguine with the vongole was very good. I had a hangar steak with the sides which were good. It's kinda like what you make for yourself at home. That's what most impressed us. We would come here again when we come to this part of the city again.

I love this restaurant so much because, unlike anywhere else I've ever been, Joanne Trattoria offers an incredibly homey, comfortable, delicious and fulfilling experience. The food — especially Cynthia's Chopped Antipasti and Joanne's Meatballs — has always been served fresh and in a timely, attentive manner. Every time that I decide to go to Joanne's, I try to bring a friend or a family member who has not been to the place before because I want them to share in my incredible experience. Going to Joanne's is always such an amazing gift, and I'm always so grateful for it.

A very rainy night. There is no place to hang coats except a few hooks as you enter. A mess! And no place to put umbrellas, so the entrance was littered with them, helter, skelter. The noise level is very high. We will not return (we went all the time when it was Vince and Eddie's)

Great for pre opera/ballet and other Lincoln Center events. The food is excellent and the service is geared to pre-theater without rushing you. We had seafood risotto which was superb as well as the penne all’s vodka and veal Marsala. The deserts were fresh and delicious.

I was in town from Boston for a conference and had to get there! Great bar tender, I hung out at the bar waiting for my cousin and they were very entertaining. Good ambiance with the family pictures and great meatballs. We sat in the back in a quiet little room and got to catch up, it was a great experience that I will repeat when I can. Thanks Germinotta Family <3

Nice cozy neighborhood place that I have no added to my list of regular places to go before Lincoln Center. The food, as described, is really good home-style Italian cuisine. Nothing fancy, just excellent execution of satisfying regulars like spaghetti and meatballs, chicken milanese, etc. By far the best dish was Papa G's chicken which is their version of on-the-bone chicken scarpariello. I got mine with hot sausage, a seldom offered option and it was "stupid good!" In all, the meal was a bit pricey, but the quality of the food and the service were excellent. I am looking forward to my next visit.

Disappointing as returning diners with the anticipation of a satisfying pre-opera meal. We had allowed 2 hours so we would not be rushed but we had longer than necessary wait times between courses. It was much noisier than we recalled and the entrees were luke warm when they arrived. Yes, it was the evening Yom Kippur began so it was very crowded with pre-service diners who had a time constraint, but as opera goers, so did we. We felt somewhat ignored, especially since I had decided to use my precious $50 reward voucher to dine here.

Service was excellent. Great wait staff, drinks were good, and the food was excellent. (However wish that the portions were a little bit larger)
Great experience and would recommend and return.

We went for the birthday of our friend — who is a super Gaga Stan. The menu is full of classic Italian staples, and while nothing is too ambitious, everything delivered. A tad overpriced but happily accepted the premium for the novelty of the place for our friend. Service was super friendly, all around a good time and our friend was thrilled with it all!

We loved the food! However, it is a very tiny restaurant and I had a lady sitting right behind me who was taking up more than her share of space, so I was pressed tightly against my table for much of the meal. They also weren't serving any of the exciting desserts that are shown on their Facebook page, so that was a bit disappointing. But overall, the food was AWESOME and we will be back. The meatballs truly are amazing. It isn't their fault that the restaurant is small and popular.

You must try the Meatballs, Spaghetti Bolognese, and Tiramisu. If they offer fresh pasta, by all means, treat yourself!

We had a choice of two tables. Both were large enough to accommodate a group double our size.
