An amazing and cozy family italian restaurant. All of the food tastes home cooked, and it is the perfect place for any Lady Gaga fan with many photos and memorabilia of her. Service was very good and my food was delicious.

Excellent service and food. Sangiovese was delicious. Food was served hot, but the bread was ice cold. Loved the calamari and veal. Sauce reminded me of grandma’s. Will be back again

I have been eating here for several years. When I was seated for my 6pm reservation I was told we would have to be out by 8 as there was another reservation for a larger party coming. Basically we were rushed through our meal and again reminded several times that we needed to be out by 8. This made our meal experience very uncomfortable and awkward. We were brought the check and told again we needed to leave. While we were reviewing the check we were then told the other reservation had cancelled so
we didn’t have to leave. The whole dinner experience tonight was awkward and uncomfortable. One of the reasons I enjoy coming back is the relaxed unrushed atmosphere. That was not the case tonight. I was not pleased with the experience tonight.

A lovely little restaurant, perfect location, cozy and neighborhoody. When I made the reservation I requested that our party of 4 be seated on their patio, and it was no problem - very pretty and comfortable. The service was terrific and the food delicious.

Open Table updated my reservation status and I just posted this review: I didn’t cancel my reservation at Joanne’s Trattoria, but restaurant claimed that I did, probably because they didn’t want me to give a review. I wasn’t going to submit a review but their cancellation of my reservation is clearly an attempt at censoring me. We arrived early. Even though there was an odd smell at the entrance, my daughter wanted to eat there. We were seated in Siberia despite there being MANY empty tables. My mother noted that there were only two tables between the kitchen and the entrance, and was worried about the lack of fire exists. In the meantime my mother and daughter ordered beverages. She asked for another table. The hostess told her there was only one other table. My mom went to see it and it was unacceptable. She asked the waitress for our check. I paid for the two drinks and tipped the waitress and then left. Hostess was surly and unaccommodating and this restaurant is a fire trap, as my mother was told there was no remote fire exit. My mom’s mother lost friends in a restaurant fire with a similar layout so it is an issue of concern. I am furious that the restaurant claims it is a cancellation because they were so unaccommodating.

We were seated promptly upon our arrival and taken to a nice table in the middle dining room. They have a very good wine by the glass menus so we ordered a couple of glasses of chianti. The food was excellent and our server was very good as well. I highly recommend Joanne Trattoria and its proximity to Lincoln Center is a huge plus.

Arrived early for our reservation, so we enjoyed a glass of wine at the bar. A nice wine list with a range of price which is always nice. Our server was attentive without hovering.
We enjoyed Joanne's on our last trip and were very happy that it was as good as we remembered.

The food was terrible. Over cooked pasta, a tiny thin piece of fried chicken. Not worth the money at all. Incredibly over priced. The place is cramped inside, you're sitting right up against your neighbors at the other tables. One of the workers sprayed windex all over the table next to us as we ate - no thought or consideration that it would get on our food. So disappointing. Do not eat here.

When visiting NYC we always include a dinner at Joanne Trattoria. When we went the other night I was very disappointed in the quality of the food. I always have ordered chicken parm and it has always been delicious and a generous portion for a fair price but last night the chicken was over cooked and dry , the portion smaller than it used to be and the price more expensive . With so many choices of a restaurant in the uws I don’t think I will return to Joanne .

The food was very bland. I had the Scallop Linguine and my partner had the vodka Penne pasta dish. Both had zero flavour, the also arrived less than 10minutes from ordering so I assume they were not cooked fresh.

The starter was taken away before we had actually finished with it and our mains were promptly and abruptly placed in front of us.

The staff did not gain in any conversation, none of them actually seemed like they wanted to be there.

There was absolutely no atmosphere in the restaurant what so ever to the point it was slightly uncomfortable.

Being a fan of Lady Gaga I really wanted to love everything about the restaurant but unfortunately everything just fell flat of the mark

Happy hour deals/specials noted on Open Table when you book a 7:30 reservation are not actually honored at the restaurant (bar or table seating). Not sure if this glitch in advertising is Open Table’s mistake. The food was edible, but not great. The service, though well intentioned, was slow and inept. Our appetizers and entrees all came out at the same time. We were offered bread service midway through the meal. We were never asked if we wanted a second drink. With so many wonderful neighborhood restaurants in NYC and the UWS, Joanne’s is certainly not worth a visit.
