Food was great, servers were very nice. They did have heat lamps outside although it was still pretty chilly which lead to not staying as long. But overall very nice
The pastas and drinks were amazing! The pizza was meh, but I think we just got unlucky. A friend had a great experience with the pizza so I think this was an off night for his. The staff was super friendly. Will definitely return!
Love the gluten free options here. My drink was delicious as well. Friendly and knowledgeable server.
Great food, great service, very strong heaters outside. Also good for takeout and delivery.
Always a great place!
Love the branzino! Service was exceptional and the outside set up was great.
Katie was amazing! From the moment we walked in she was so accommodating and helpful. She completely enhanced our dining experience and was an amazing server. Extremely friendly and outgoing.
Pandemic dinning outdoors, made for an eventful time Our waitress was great
Pleasing variety of delicious Italian foods. Never disappoints! One of our favorites in NYC!
I have never had a bad meal here. David and the entire staff are top notch. Excellent Sangria.
First time dining at Nizza. My boyfriend and I sat inside — only one other couple. It was perfect. 9pm reservation. Delicious food. Meatballs, Pepperoni Pizza & Bronzino — he had the Burrata & Caesar Salad — all delicious. Will be back very soon.
I LOVE this place. They have the best food and friendliest servers. And they are doing everything right for dining during Covid.
What an outstaning dining experience!!
I'd go back there every night if I could
Always fabulous! Been here around 50 times and never disappoints!
Everyone was so nice. This is my favorite neighborhood restaurant. It was so great going back. The food was as wonderful as ever.
Loved it! Great ambiance. Love their frozen aperol spritz!
Nizza is my favorite restaurant in NYC, and has been for over 10 years. The food is exceptional and moderately priced, and the ambiance is perfection.
One of our favorite places to eat. We still come here for dinner despite having moved out of the neighborhood ten years ago. First time here post COVID- was pleasantly surprised that the food was excellent as always but the service seemed to only get better and all the precautions taken definitely gave a sense of safety.
Service was good. Food was decent. Past dinners there have been great.
I a am a frequent client of Nizza....always reliable service, food, choices, amiability!!
I love this spot! Service is always friendly and the food is delicious! Thank you for being open!
We had someone mentally unwell on the street (where we were dining) come up to us and talk for a while and beg for money. It was about five to seven minutes before someone from the restaurant came out to see if we needed help and by then my boyfriend had given him cash because he wouldn’t go away. Since all the dining is on the street now it would be great if the restaurant could help keep an eye out so it doesn’t put all of your customers in an awkward position. Thank you
Delicious meatball pizza and gluten free brocolli rabe pizza. Tasty arugula salad. Clam appetizer was a little chewy, but sauce was amazing. Eggplant rolettini was good. Decaf Americano was spot on. Excellent service by Luke and other staff.
Amazing food and even better service! It was pouring and with outdoor dining that can be a bummer! My gals and I had an awesome experience despite the rain and that was absolutely due to the staff. They were so attentive and overall genuinely nice! Thank you so much for your hospitality, I’ll never forget it!
Absolutely amazing! My server was such a sweetheart! Loved it
We have been many times but this time the gnocchi was terrible. Not sure what happened but everything else was nice
Food and service are outstanding!
The food was pretty oily for the most part, though it tasted alright. It just could have been handled with more care. Drinks and service were great.
We always love coming to Nizza for some tasty Italian food. We don't mind riding the MTA for an hour for it.
Go! It’s fab!!
The pesto pasta was amazing. I will for sure be returning very soon!
Favourite neighborhood spot. Varied menu. Great space.
Best gf pizza!
Really enjoyed our pre-theater dinner here. The menu was extensive, the food was great, and the waitress was so nice and very mindful of the fact that we had a show to make. All in all a great find! Will definitely go back.
Pizza was incredible
Nizza never disappoints. Try the socca. It's AMAZING.
Food and service were very good. Price was reasonable for Manhattan Theater district.
Came here with three girlfriends for pre-theater lunch and first thing we get is a plate with one piece of bread and olive oil...for 4 people. Already I knew this wasn’t going to go well. We asked our server what she recommended and one of the entrees mentioned was the mushroom frittata. So we all decide to get it and all four were hardly edible. It came with a plain mixed green side salad which was overly dressed and two crisps. Unfortunately we didn’t have enough time to complain and request something else or we would’ve been late to our show. Maybe the chef had an off day or we ordered the wrong entree. Either way we were all very disappointed.
Nizza provided a very good casual dining experience to our group of 6 on a Saturday night after a show. The food was reasonably priced and VERY tasty! Our server was attentive and personable. Members of our group ordered cheese, salad, pasta, and pizza. Overall, we really enjoyed our meal.
