Good Italian Spot on 9th along Restaurant Row. Everything is made Fresh, the appetizer three entrees, two desserts and drinks for three came to little over $100 before tip and everything was terrific. They do have a Prix Fixe menu for restuarant week appetizer entree dessert for $39. Wait staff was excellent. Dining room is tight so it does get loud when busy.

Nizza is one of our go-to places in the neighborhood. The prices are fair. The staff is attentive and friendly without being helicoptery or annoying. The food is delicious and the outdoor seating is comfortable, with wind screens and heating lamps overhead. We ate outside during the snow last night and it was delightful

Most amazing pasta. Ever. Sour amaretto was delish. Service was excellent. Adorable atmosphere, very cozy. I dinged the 1 star because it was very cramped. The next table was literally an inch away. Although they checked vaccination cards at entry, was a little too close during this pandemic. But I will return and will recommend to anyone!

We arrived early for our reservation and soggy from the rain. We were warmly welcomed, vac cards quickly checked and quickly seated. Our dinners were all amazing. I had the best Caesar salad I've ever had. The grilled radicchio that's mixed in rocks! One of us had the gluten free pizza which was good. The gluten free offerings mirror the regular menu which is wonderful. Our soppressata pizza was amazing. Two people ordered the butternut squash ravioli with sage butter and they are STILL talking about it 2 days later. Great staff and service. I'm so glad we came here. Thanks for making our day in NYC fantastic!

We had a person with food allergies in our party and I made a note of that in my OpenTable reservation. The host brought up the allergies and reassured us that this was a safe place for our party to eat. I was impressed by the attention to detail. The service was also fast and friendly. Our group was satisfied with the meal.

The place was small, brightly lite, and crowded. We were also seated close to the door. Also thought the food was overpriced for what we got, but the service and sangria was good!

Our Saturday evening pre-theatre dinner was a mixed bag. The food, especially the house-made pasta was good. The salmon and pork chop entrees were tasty, if a bit salty. The ambiance was somewhat lacking, and the restaurant was very noisy. It was a crowded Saturday evening. Wine was relatively expensive.

Had a wonderful pre-theatre dinner in their outside dining area. Despite being January with temps in the 30s the outdoor area was incredibly warm without being closed in.

The food and was great (and reasonably priced for midtown) and it was the first time in a long while that I had attentive service that didn't need of the usual 'sorry, we are short staffed' apology.

We saw Wicked and made reservations for after the show. We were not disappointed. The place was busy and lively, the menu true italian cuisine.

We had chicken Parmigiano, Chopped salad which had fennel, radishes, and kalamta olives with a vinegrette.
Nonna' meatballs and Margarita pizza .

All delicious and filling

Appreciate the ability to add to our party for the reservation provided by the manager. Was a NYE gathering of friends and we needed a table outside to accommodate some still not comfortable w indoors. Servers and staff were great and helped us keep everything flowing. You’re one of my fav go to spots in my neighborhood and value Nizza greatly - thx again!

The food was amazing and that made up for the lackluster service!!! We sat outside in December and took our coats off because the heaters were warm enough and comfortable.

This restaurant was perfect for my family's pre-show dinner. The atmosphere was very comfortable yet upscale. It was a nice treat for my children to have dinner in the city at this lovely and affordable restaurant. There was something on the menu for all of us!

Nizza - Still the best!

Hard to believe that the prices remain reasonable and the food and service - as always - outstanding. It remains a favorite pre-theater destination (indoor and warm enough outdoor seating), and is also wonderful for brunch and, I'm sure, at any time, any day!

We arrived a half hour early for our reservation, the restaurant hadn't even opened for the day, but the manager welcomed us, seared us at our outdoor table, brought us water and menus, and turned on the heater! The server was equally welcoming and helpful. The food was fabulous. We had salads, pizza, pasta and branzino. We'll definitely return next time we're in the city!
