I arrived just as they were opening for the dinner crowd. I was greeted by a very nice bartender who chatted with me until the hostess got my table ready. The restaurant is clean and tidy. There are at least two fireplaces that were lit to add to the cozy ambiance. I had a difficult decision choosing my appetizer and my server told me they were known for their meatballs. She did not steer me wrong. Those meatballs are the things of my dreams. Several of the staff tended to my every need. I was brought bread and a drink and my water glass was never empty. I ordered the grilled mahi mahi with lemon caper sauce and green beans and it was prepared perfectly. I took a cannoli with me because I was very full. On my way out the door several of the staff wished me a nice evening and thanked me for my business. All in all, and I rarely give a flawless review, my experience here was perfect and I would definitely eat there again.
This is the second time we have visited this place. Used it last year 2019 and this year 2020 and it’s just amazing from the food to the atmosphere.
Explored Joannes while visiting the city on the recommendation of a friend, the ambience is wonderful. The food is reasonably priced and delicious!
Love everything about this place! Food and service was amazing
Pleasant neighborhood trattoria yet very near Lincoln Center good food well served in friendly environment.
My favorite restaurant in Manhattan. Everyone MUST try it.
The food was amazing! The service was exceptional. Love how cute the place is inside. Very nice. Sat by the fireplace. A bit noisy, but we could still hear each other talk. Definitely on our list of return restaurants in NYC
Brought someone that had never been and throughly enjoyed it
Great! Back twice in a week!
We loved it. Have been telling all my friends about it. Meatballs tasted just like my grandmothers.
Superb atmosphere, wonderful service and delicious food!!
Our food was outstanding!
We went to Joanne's Trattoria to celebrate our daughter's birthday and have to say the whole experience was wonderful! The staff was on point and the food was delicious. We all ordered something different and one dish was as good as the next. Thanks for a fabulous experience!
I ate at Joanne Trattoria with a friend and her 13 year old daughter. We had previously visited with a larger group. This time, we had a reservation for 5:30 following a matinee. We were seated in the back (veranda style) room. Our orders were simple: spaghetti with meatballs, spaghetti with eggplant meatballs, and spaghetti with olive oil and sauce on the side. These simple dishes were delicious but expensive for what they were. My friend and I each had a glass of wine and we were pleased with the wine suggestion. The servers were pleasant, but service was slow. We asked multiple times for a napkin to balance our wobbly table and a wine list. The chocolate mousse cake was disappointing..rather dry and not very chocolate-y. Our biggest complaint was that the process of getting and paying the check took about a half an hour. We were not displeased, but we agreed we may want to try somewhere new on our next visit from Boston.
Wonderful Salads and pizzas. The wine is also very good. Very reasonable for NYC.
I was very pleased with our decision to eat here. Everything was spectacular and when we visit NYC again, we will go back. The manager Laura & Marianne, our waitress were outstanding! Thank you for making our Friday night truly amazing & memorable!
Tight quarters but food and ambiance make up for that. Service was excellent. Lemon chicken with artichoke hearts was so good my mouth is watering thinking about it.
