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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

Nizza never disappoints. Great, delicious food, flavors that delight in every way and a truly amazing staff — our waiter and waitress went above and beyond and made us feel like we were the only ones in the restaurant. A great night for my dear friend and I.

We had a great experience at Nizza. Everyone enjoyed their food and our waiter was patient and attentive. The chicken cutlet was cooked perfectly and the rigatoni with mushrooms was amazing. My gnocchi was okay (the other items were better). The burrata was delicious too.

Celiac theatergoers rejoice! They have an excellent selection of gluten free italian entrees - even the bread they bring out before the meal is gluten free and delicious! Very reasonably priced as well, especially for the neighborhood. Nice wine and cocktail list.
