    So glad my wife suggested this restaurant to me. I can go on and on with accolades but I can say it all in one word... PERFECTION! Best Baked Ziti ever, Meat Balls incredible and my 14 yr.old son loved the chicken Parm... Kudos to chef, staff and management. Will DEFINITELY be back soon! Highly recommend this eatery.

    The food does not match the aesthetic at all, and that is a compliment to the food, not the decor. A place that has a liquor license should have nicer tables that the likes of those sitting in the pedestrian mall outside of Macy's. I think the glass my bourbon arrived in may have had more weight to it than the chair I was sitting in. The [lack of] ambiance does not make me want to bring people here, even though the food is tasty. I've never been to the original location, but the UWS location was very cheesy looking and feeling - it actually feels like an old-timey ice cream parlor (which again, does not match the menu, or the fact that you have a liquor license....). I paid $45 for chicken parm, a tiny side salad and a cocktail - but I felt like I was in a mall food court, which makes the price harder to swallow. We went across the street to the Tavern on the corner to get another drink after dinner, and we sat there for twice as long as we did eating a full meal (including appetizer) at this establishment. Really crappy, chintzy aesthetic.

    Wish they let you order a different pasta on the dinner. The house pasta is filled with melted cheese strings and is also spicy. Would have rather had something simpler. Otherwise, it tastes like the Italian food of my childhood.

    First time there, sat us right away. Very friendly staff, multiple ppl checked on our table. Food was good and fresh, & came out hot and fast. We were half hour early for our rez and it was not problem. Was a good place to eat before The Met, easy walking distance from Lincoln Center. Would recommend and definitely go back.

    Decent food, but the service was not good. The server forgot to mention several items were not available that night until we were in the process of ordering. The glasses of wine were not full pours. The table we were seated at was dirty. All in all it was a very disappointing experience.

    They seriously rushed us despite that there were open tables (no pun intended). The "parms" are very good, but the place has the feel of a Disney version of an Italian restaurant. It's worth one visit, but there are too many real Italian restaurants in Manhattan to make it a regular.

    The food was pretty decent, however, the portions for the $25 chicken parm were a little off—my plate was mostly pasta with three small pieces of chicken. Service was also a little disappointing. I had wanted some grated Parmesan for my pasta and we were missing a side dish from our order, and we were 3/4 of the way done with our meal before our server came to check on us so that we could ask for these things. The hostess also had a bad attitude. All in all, it was okay and I’d be willing to go back and try other things on their menu. My friend’s lemon chicken was delicious.

    We ate here years ago and it was fantastic. But the best dishes and wines have come off the menu - there is little choice, and the quality of the few things they do serve doesn’t match the price. What a shame, this place used to be so good. We won’t be returning.

    Nice place and people but the food was not worth eating. Wanted to try the eggplant parmigiano, very disappointing. Smallest, greasiest fried calamari ever though the long peppers were a good touch. Pork Milanese was fatty and greasy but again with a nice arugula topping. Didn't bother with dessert which had only 3 choices cheesecake, ice cream cake and chocolate.

    Food was good, but not great. My chicken farm was a bit hard around the edges, probably from being re-heated. There was also a strange lack of sauce on everything, including the pasta. The food had good flavor, and the service was prompt and efficient, but there are too many good Italian restaurants in NYC to go back to this one for another meal.

    We had a great experience and an excellent meal. This is a family oriented place with a great vibe. I need the recipe for the spicy rotini pasta that comes with the chicken parm. The menu is no-nonsense and has traditional appeal with updated flavors. This dining experience was multi generational and enjoyed by all.

    Had so looked forward to our meal at Parm. Salad was excellent and drinks were spot-on. But we found the famed chicken parm quite overcooked - even tough. The accompanying pasta had nice flavor but was also overcooked - kind of soggy. All in all a disappointment after a whole lotta hype.
