Great restaurant for romance or spending time with friends. The food was delicious and the staff were very nice.
I found the food here yo be very mediocre. That bad kind of Italian American food. Terrible tomato sauce and eggplant that was too bready and undercooked. Place seemed a little grundgy and in need of some TLC. Would not return.
Key points to consider:
Seating is very tight to the point of uncomfortable due to very small tables barely accommodating the dishes and which are placed unusually close to each other. Private conversations are open to those seated near you.
My pasta with eggplant meatballs was good but overwhelmed with too much sauce, such that when I finished the pasta, half the bowl was filled with sauce.
The grilled shrimp salad was OK but the shrimp was overcooked and dry. The $27 charge was not a good value.
Atmosphere was pleasant and service was efficient, professional and courteous.
This not a 'cozy' restaurant but the food was quite good except the foccacia served was stale. Nice cocktails and a good wine list, even if purchasing by the glass. The servers were very pleasant and attentive (not overly so, which is good). With so many Italian restaurants to choose from I am not sure we would return here.
Fantastic accommodating service. I was running a bit late for my reservation, and I called ahead and they let come to the restaurant 15 minutes after my initial time, which was much appreciated for the birthday I was celebrating!
Excellent food. The pizza was delicious. Great staff. Super kind and pro.
Joann’s was everything I imagined!!!
Food was delicious, so glad we choose your restaurant!!!
We will definitely be back on our next trip to NYC!!!
Wow!!! We had an outstanding dinner today. We came here to celebrate my birthday. The food is incredibly amazing and our server was wonderful. She even broke out and sang when she gave me my cake. We will be back and highly recommend a visit here!!
Loved it! Great experience
Food was delicious and wait staff very personable and efficient. Can’t wait to go back.
It was lovely
The service at Joanne was impeccable and the food was divine. I immediately felt warm and welcome - the environment and decor was especially cosy! Will absolutely recommend to friends and family who visit NYC.
This was our third time dining at JOANNE.
We have enjoyed it every time and will be returning on our next visit to NYC.
Spaghetti meatball was delicious, the buttery chicken artichoke with gluten free pasta,on demand, was very good.
Very expensive for food which tastes nothing special I can get better Italian food in my home town in the UK
By far the most disappointing meal in a long time notwithstanding it being new years eve. A missed opportunity to go somewhere better. We were seated in the open area outside which was fine but at a rickety high table. The pork ragu was poor with overcooked pasta, the tiramisu - we've had so much better. Before we had finished our wine, the heat outside was switched off along with some lights with the waitress stating loudly that they could close up as soon as we were all gone. Appalling. A long way from the authentic tratorria in Italy. So disappointing and a missed opportunity to go elsewhere. Nothing more to be said.
New Years Eve
Great atmosphere with great service and hospitality
Came here because I am a huge Lady Gaga fan and wanted to eat at her parents restaurant. I was disappointed with the food. I thought it would be better. Location, ambiance and service was great.
Pretty place. Friendly service. Food just average. Disappointing.
We enjoyed dining at Joanne’s where it was relaxed and quiet as opposed to the night before, dining in Little Italy where it’s hectic, noisy and they churn you out as quickly as possible.
Went to Joanne for a birthday celebration. The food, music, atmosphere and everything else was wonderful.
Quality of food has diminished since last visit. Caesar Salad did not taste at all like a Caesar salad and the meatballs were tasteless. Sauce was good, though.
Always have to pop in here for an authentic Italian meal in a cozy warm environment.
We went on a family dinner. The service was not so good, I ordered a drink for my dad and it took 20 minutes for us to get it even when I re asked the waiter for it 2 more times.
We ordered a rib eye medium cooked and it was almost well done.
The salmon, Mac and cheese and chicken parm are very tasty. Good portions.
Ambiance was good for me because they kept the music on the lady Gaga’s pop side. Not so noisy. We got a booth table and the arm space was not so big.
They should have perhaps a small waiting area, we arrive 15 mins before our reservation and had to wait outside.
Overall, we would definitely come back again. Just improve the service please.
Great atmosphere, very cozy and warm with the 2 fire places! Food was very good and drinks were right on point. The only disappointment was the tiramisu, scores a 4 when comparing-to other places. Would definitely go back!
The food was delicious but we had problem with a chair on the table and also our check was given way before we asked for it.
Dinner before seeing nutcracker
A meal at Joanne Trattoria has become an tradition for us at the Holidays.
Just a delightful dinner. The food was beautifully prepared and the service outstanding.
Food was excellent! Staff very nice! Very cute restaurant!
Taylor was our server and he was exceptional!
We love the atmosphere food and location.
We had a 7pm reservation. We lingered with cocktails until 12am, and no one tried to usher us out!
It was delicious! Our waitress was wonderful. The hostess was very sweet! I just
Our table was ready when we arrived. Restaurant cozy. Servers were attentive. Food was well prepared. Fresh pasta excellent. And food not heavy, portions well sized. We would go again.
Attentive wait staff but Bussers seemed to be in a race to get things off the table, often times not asking. 3 quibbles, wife's dish was lukewarm meaning it was left out and then served, expected spoon to twirl pasta and didn't get one, also only Italian restaurant in recent memory that had Parmiggiano in a shaker and not grated at the table.
Very pleasant and festive given the Christmas decor.The service was timely ,professional and friendly.The food was delicious.
Nice cozy place. Mussels were great.
Had an 8:15 reservation, but no table was available inside the restaurant, so we were offered a table outside under a tent (with heaters) in 26-degree freezing weather. We were finally seated at an inside table in the bar area around 9pm. Service was via the bartender who toggled between the bar area and the 2 tables nearby. The service was slow or non-existant. One server tried to clear my plate while my guest was still eating. Not good. Wine at $16 a glass, pasta / risotto at $25-$30, veal chop at $42 - meteoric prices for mediocre (but very edible) quality.
Joanne’s meatballs were excellent, however the rest of the food was average and expensive. But, what was most disappointing was the lack lustre service that bordered on outright rudeness. I expected better.
Food and service was no better than an average Italian restaurant.
