I love the food at Stella and I love that the tables are not on top of one another. You can enjoy quiet conversation with your table mate and you can get up from your seat without having the table next to you move so you can get out. A great place to meet a friend.

A perfect dinner! We are dinner here tonight, and had a window seat with a beautiful view of the Empire State Building. The pizza we had was butternut squash, and it was the best pizza either one of us had ever had. We also had roasted vegetables that were amazing. I will return here the next time I visit NYC!

Service is friendly but too lax at reception. I was left standing awaiting an empty table too long with little concern shown although there was no one else waiting and my table had been selected. The meal was ok, pizza good but my cafe latte was weak and tepid. I complained and this got ignored.

The main reason to eat at Trattoria 34 is its location in Macy’s and it’s modest view of the Empire State Building. The food is a nice slightly modern take on Italian. Prices are reasonable. It’s relatively quiet. Service was friendly but not great. We had to remind the server of our drinks order and no one ever refilled our water glasses. These are insignificant points, but they illustrate the difference between Trattoria 34 and most other restaurants in this price range.

Went at lunch time for group reservation business lunch. Food Is delicious and restaurant is beautiful. Service can be slow and waiter was not knowledgeable about portion sizes, how many slices of pizza were in a pie, etc, causing us to over order significantly. Leftovers were delicious but wondering if, for example, saying the half a meter pizza only had 8 slices and suggesting we order two when it had over 15 slices was a ploy to have a larger bill.

Would still recommend as long as you have at least 1.5 hours to dedicate to lunch and are not pressed for time.

Wonderful view of the Empire State Building, even if you do not score a table by the windows. Pizza is always a good option - especially the butternut squash and pistachio. Yum.

The ambience was brilliant, everything seemed very high end despite the low price, but the service was abhorrent.
We came as a group of 8 clearly tourist schoolchildren, a little early for our booking. Despite being a big group, we were rather quiet, but nothing seemed to please the Waiter. We were seated at a table away from the main group, which was understandable given the size of the group (most tables were 2's or 4's), which seemed like a nice gesture from the wait staff to the rest of the patrons there. Nonetheless, nothing we did seemed to quell the waiter's hatred for our entire group. Every time he thanked us, he just said yes in an incredibly annoyed, monotone voice. He ignored us at all times possible and was generally incredibly rude to us.
The food, however, was fabulous. As previously mentioned, it was very cheap for the experience it gave, and though slightly too oily, the pizza was lovely, and there was plenty of choice for vegetarians.

Overall, it was a mediocre experience, it would have been brilliant were it not for the unfriendly waiter.

I initially went to this restaurant because it is so close to Penn Station (one long block and one short block away). That is one of the reasons I continue to meet friends there for lunch. I like the fact that they don’t rush us out if we linger after we finish eating. Finally, every course in the three-course prix fixe ($29) lunch I had there three days ago was delicious.

I have been to Stella many times and enjoyed it very much, this time I was extremely disappointed in the service - we had to ask for water about 6 times. No one asked how our meal was - the food was ok. servers were hardly on the floor. Then a mouse ran by...enough said
Not sure I will go back

Had been before but tonight it was packed due to Elton John concert. I had made a reservation via open table & for some reason, they didn't have a record, but was able to accommadate, even though they had just turned a party away due to no reservation.
It was very loud!!
Order was taken quickly & food arrived fast as well, we had said we were headed to the concert. Pizza is soooo good as was the roasted vegatable dish.

Food was salty. I kept drinking water after I got home. Chicken soup wasn't very tasty. Not sure if it was meant to taste like that or not. It could be my unsophisticated palette. View and ambiance was nice.

Based on reviews, I decided to give Stella 34 a try. When I saw it was IN Macy's I was concerned, thinking the high ratings were based on the relief of shoppers to have some decent food. Luckily I went in and found the restaurant. The hostess, waiter, and food were far above 'mall dining'. Actually three days later, I wish I were in NYC, to go back and repeat the same meal again.

Service was good - attentive waiter. The food is always good and nicely presented. Just a simple calzone and meatball sandwich shared with a friend. I wondered why the price of the eggplant parm sandwich was $26 while the veal meatball was $18. Did not get to the manager about that odd pricing. Wonderful break in a once a year day of shopping at Macy's.
