Very good meal to catch up with an old friend. The food was excellent and the back room is intimate and quiet enough for conversation. I asked the server about two dishes I was considering and she gently suggested the papparadelle with pork ragu on the specials menu. It was very good advice because my meal was delicious. Thank you!

I’ve been gong to LE Zie since it opened but quite irregularly since I no longer live in NYC. My mother has been a regular the whole time. For some reason, we decided to order the Cicchetti appetizer and WOW! It was wonderful and a filling meal for the two of us. Each dish was tasty and the presentation was lots of fun. BTW, their olive oil is very tasty and the bottle has it’s own label on it ...

We finished with a fabulous mango soufflé with sorbet — what a treat! Our “neighborhood” Italian restaurant just rose to up the list of places we need to visit more often when we’re in the City.

My Cesar salad was a mound of limp, tasteless chopped lettuce and the pasta bolognese was equally dreadful.

Le Zie is a reliably good Italian restaurant, with some especially good Venetian appetizers. The service can be trying due to difficulties understanding the waitstaff, although our waitress in the back room was excellent. Considering that this is not a stellar restaurant, the prices are a bit steep.

Such a reliable neighborhood favorite. Some dishes are truly excellent (spaghetti and meatballs, tuna main course for instance). The problem is that there are a few that are sub par (eg artichoke starter). Overall love this place and come back often.

Loved the fresh ingredients. Appetizers and food were great. A little pricey for me.
$16 for a 5-6 oz glass of house wine. Granted, the wine was excellent, but at that price ( as well as the rest of the menu) I will go back , but not real soon.

Delicious sea scallops prepared with cauliflower puré were excellent. When we arrived, the restaurant was fairly empty, and the noise level was comfortable for easy conversation. When we left, the restaurant was full, and the noise level was STILL very comfortable! Bravo for a restaurant that gets it right!

Both wine ( by the glass and bottles) and food were extremely overpriced! Food was mediocre at best. My yellow fin tuna ravioli tasted like pasty crabmeat - with bones! A Caesar salad wasn’t much either. No romaine, no sign of an anchovy, and ordinary dressing. Not crowded so you could sit a long time but very mediocre for the high price tag.

I was very impressed. Had the shrimp cakes and grilled vegetables. Delicious! My friend had the octopus which I tasted and was my actual favorite. The portion size was decent and we were so full we could not have dessert. I am sure I will be back. It exceeded expectations.

4 of us went to lunch on a rainy friday and took advantage of the price fix lunch menu - 3 courses = $29 with a nice bottle of Primitivo for $51.00. The fried calamari were especially delicious and our waiter Carlos was efficient and charming. We wound up spending 3 hours over a leisurely perfect lunch. We've been before and the food and service are always excellent.

We had an 8 p.m. reservation but our table was not ready. We were taken outside and around the corner to a separate lounge to await our table. There was no place to wait in this very small and narrow space, as restaurant staff also used the aisle to transport food and dishes. Having ordered a drink, we were directed to follow the hostess--drink in hand--around a corner, up two levels, to our table. The hostess stood at the top of the stairs and watched as I navigated the stairs, spilling portions of my full glass as I ascended. Saying nothing, she watched as one final overflow of liquid dropped onto the stairs. Later on, when our waiter asked if I wanted a refill, I told him what'd happened. He returned with what looked like 1/8th of a drink as compensation. All around, not very classy.
As for the food, the fried zucchini were alternately cold and tepid, and the fried calamari was under seasoned. However, the broiled salmon with a horseradish crust was superb.
I would return for no other reason than that salmon!

Excellent neighborhood staple. I've been coming here for 15+ years with my family. Cannot go wrong with any dish. I recommend the Lasagna and the classic Spaghetti & Meatballs. YUM! The service is on point and always friendly.

Have been coming to Le Zie for years. On Saturday, the food was good, as always, but the service left a lot to be desired. The female server seemed inexperienced, not particularly friendly. Instead of the fine service we normally experience, Saturday's experience was rushed, awkward.

The restaurant was not particularly busy, but there were numerous employees observed checking their cell phones throughout our 2+ hour dinner there.

Probably won't be in a rush to return to Le Zie anytime soon.
