This was a terrific find. We were seated in the covered patio area at a high table. Very comfortable and quiet at 5:15 pm. The food was delicious. We had the salmon and it was perfect.

A must go to when I'm in NYC. The food is delicious, as are the drinks. The Tuscan Ribeye was one of the best steaks I've ever eaten and the Lobster Raviolis incredible!
The staff are very friendly!
Thanks! See you again, next time!

Just a blah experience. A TV going in the dining room? No bread offered at an Italian restaurant? No specials?

This is a charming, old-school Upper West Side family-owned place—a dying breed in Manhattan. Don’t expect authentic Italian, but red sauce Italian in the traditional American manner. Stick with the hearty classics, enjoy the very well-made cocktails, and enjoy the rustic charm of the little dining room. Leave the desserts—old school is sometimes best forgotten.

Seated right away. Great atmosphere. They forgot to bring out second course and then offered to remove it from check. White truffle sauce very good; fettuccine and mushrooms with it were okay.

Food was poor. Arancini (rice balls) were like paste. All dishes we ordered with a tomato based sauce were very acidic. I chewed a few Tums before sitting to write this review.

Bummer they were only serving their Valentine’s Day menu but was delicious.

Really like this neighborhood restaurant but will never go again on a “special” day. Normally food is simple and tasty but the restaurant tried way too hard to make a meal worth almost $100 per person prix fixe that was frankly a Valentine’s Day ripoff. Too much food/many courses and it all felt pre-packaged and warmed. Really sorry to have to review it like this but I wanted the everyday Joanne, not a pricey wannabe. It has frankly ruined my palate and I may not be back.

lovely place, lovely outdoor terrace, very nice service but the food was quite disappointing. Very mediocre. I had a chicken cutlet with arugula and a side of brussel sprouts with bacon that sounded really good. Not. Maybe the Italian standards are better?
It was late -- after 8:30 on a quiet week night, so maybe that was part of the problem.

This place is amazing. Very cute and charming but the food is the real reason to go. Every single thing we got was outstanding. We got meatballs and calamari as an appetizer. Both amazing. I don't think I have ever had such a good meatball...and the meat ragu was delicious. Lemon artichoke chicken was the best I have ever tasted. I wanted to lick the plate. Pork short rib ragu was exactly right. I imagined it would be pretty damn good. It was better. Chicken pesto pasta special was perfectly creamy without taking away from the delicious pesto. Light and fluffy chocolate mousse cake and espresso with Sambuca finished of the best meal we have had at a restaurant in years. Every single thing was perfection. Will definitely be coming back next time we are in NYC.

Cute place, very cozy. Sat outside. We had no forks for our appetizers, followed by not having forks for our dinner since they took them with the appetizers. Very slow service. Food was delicious! Meatballs were huge and flavorful. Brussel sprout side was soo good. My lobster ravioli was drowning in sauce. The food was good enough to go back and hope i get better service.

This was the 2nd time in a few years that I’ve been to Joanne, and it was just as amazing as the 1st time! The veal chop malinese was seriously delicious. The cheese and meat plate was super yummy. The ambiance was adorable decorated for Valentine’s Day theme. The fireplace was burning when you walked in so it set the stage for an adorable setting. All of the service staff was delightful and prompt. Hands down will return very soon!! Loved it!! #joanne #loveladygaga

Arrived early after a Sat matinee show, seated even though was .5 hour early for reservation. Great service, which I was having trouble with because of reading reviews. Joshua was very informed and very attentive and helpful to my wife and myself. All in all it was a very pleasing dinner experience and we will be back.

This was my first time here after not being able to make it previously due to snow. It was totally worth the wait, amazing food, excellent service and an all round great evening!

I stumbled upon Joanne Trattoria on Grammy Night. Need I say more? It was so lovely and romantic and although I dined alone I felt quite comfortable. Not to mention a Gaga fan who offered me his stool to watch her perform Joanne on the Grammy Awards. Perfect. The dinner was good but missed greatness just because I found the gravy to be a bit bland on the Spaghetti & Meatball Sunday dinner. I still ate almost all of it and the wine was great. Thank you.
