Pizzeria
Patsy's Pizzeria is a longstanding New York pizza parlor located in the Midtown East neighborhood of the city. As of 2008, Patsy's Pizzeria celebrated 75 years in the same location. This longevity can be attributed to the fact that Patsy's consistently makes tasty pizza with impeccable service in a friendly and welcoming atmosphere.

While there is more to the menu than just pizza (Patsy's also serves many classic Italian dishes), guests would be missing out if they didn't order one of the well-known pies. Guests rave about the classic margherita pizza with its traditional thin crust, tomato, mozzarella and basil. Other favorites include the bolognese with meat sauce and Patsy's pizza alla vodka, which is topped with a creamy house vodka sauce.<

The food here was sooo good. We had a great time and enjoyed our dinner. Entrees and wine for 6 with tip was about $300. Very reasonable. The Midtown East location is just east of Bloomingdales. Easy to find.

Ordered a large pizza and cheese ravioli and, as always, the food was delicious. Service was a little strange as the staff kept uncomfortably hovering near our table and did not seem particularly attentive or friendly. Come for the food but don’t expect anything special from the service.

The wait staff was pleasant and the restaurant was nicely decorated, quaint, and close to Dylan's Candy Bar (a stop for the kids). The downside was that it took close to 45 minutes to get our pizza (tight on time with show tickets) despite it not being busy, and it was overcooked when it came and didn't have a lot of taste. The kids milk was warm when it came. I'd probably give it another shot for the positives I mentioned, but was hoping for better.

We had a reservation so we didn't have to wait to be seated. Our server was very nice. After I ordered I noticed that our silverware was noticibly dirty and asked for some clean ones. The food came out quickly. We ordered pasta and the dishes were good, but nothing outstanding. When we were done, I noticed that the entire rim of my glass was sticky--really grossed me out, even though I was drinking through a straw. Also, the bathroom was very dirty. I would have considered coming back here to try the pizza (which looked good), but there's no excuse for serving diners with dirty glasses and silverware. With so many restaurants in NYC to choose from, I won't be coming back to this one.

That may have been the worst pizza I ever had, in New York with so many options for good think crust, yikes I can't imagine they are still in business. I would not recommend and will not go back.

It was extremely crowded, the hostess seemed overwhelm, I am glad we had a reservation but even so we waited a good 20-25 minutes to be seated. Overall everyone was happy with the meal. We had to ask for bread & water. The app of calamari took a long time to arrive and about 2 minutes after it did arrive, our entrees arrived - so that really sucked. We didn't get a chance to enjoy the app & digest a bit before the entrees came. The waitress seemed bored. Come on, it is pretty standard in an Italian restaurant to bring bread - most likely you are going to eat it at some point either before or during the meal. The food was the best part - definitely the service, the overcrowded room, the wait, the annoyingly close table behind us, taking an unused chair from our table - not ideal for a dinner out.

Beware of Saturday nite. Yes busy which this family friendly restaurant wants. Food was just warm going into luke warm and waitress actually disappeared so another gave our check. Really disappointed. Chaotic service kind of chicken running around without a head. Chianti was awful. Nice manager changed to a new bottle.
Bottom line food not great, sauce was okay. Go when they are not busy.

It was horrific. A food allergy was completely ignored, so a guest had to pick items out of her pizza or not eat a all as we only had an hour for lunch. The waitress was clueless and disengaged. The management was irresponsible and careless. The worst experience possible for a lunch business meeting.

The hostess was not friendly at all. She was a very bad first impression of the restaurant. The server was not super friendly until she realized we were going to order a lot of food and wine. The meal, however, was great. The rolls, salad, calamari, and pizza were all excellent. Overall, we had a good experience and I would go back.

While one doesn’t go here for gourmet fare, even the pizza did not live up to past meals. A veal dish was swimming in butter and lemon. No one thought their meal good. I had visited a few weeks ago and the pizza was outstanding. Not so this time. I would not recommend even for a fast, inexpensive meal. There are better places.

Hi,
We go to Patsy's frequently, and last week for the first time we were disappointed. I believe, however, that this was due to a waitress who was very new and seemed to be experiencing a slight language barrier. I would recommend that Patsy's not assign "newbi's" to large groups.

Was looking for a reasonably priced place for dinner before going to a show. Restaurant is cute, food was ok. Main complaint was that we were seated upstairs in an empty section hoping it might be cooler than downstairs where the door was always opening or near the pizza ovens. The biggest problem was that a family with screaming kids was seated directly behind us. It was intolerable. Luckily, we were able to be moved to another section upstairs. Chicken parm was good but had to ask for the extra sauce which was left off the original order. Shrimp with pasta a little overcooked but also ok. Judging by the other reviews, I'm guessing pizza is the way to go.
