Although this was not our first choice for a pre-theater meal, it turned out to be a better choice! This restaurant was named as one of the 10 best for pre-show dining on some online list I saw as I scrambled for a last-minute reservation. We understood why after we ate there. The service was excellent, prices reasonable (for NYC)... More

Although there was a nice outdoor eating area, we chose to stay inside because it was a very hot day. We told our waiter that we were going to theater and we were served with time to spare. The staff was very attentive and recited the specials with ease. My salmon was delicious. The spinach did not as much garlic... More

Had dinner here before a show in July 2014. This restaurant is on the smallish side, but my party happened to get a single table (as opposed to the family style tables running down the middle of the room). The service was great, especially since it seemed that one waitress was responsible for almost all of the tables herself. She... More

We were searching for a place to dine pre-theater. This was not on our list of suggestions from friends, but we decided to try it anyway, since it was just a short walk to the theater. This was our lucky day. We found delicious food, both seafood and meat, and the wait staff was pleasant and efficient. We were able... More

My wife and I were looking for a restaurant on the way to the theatre. Pietrasanta fit the bill, and we were pleasantly surprised by the quality of our meals and very good service during the pre-theatre rush. If you like Hell's Kitchen, go find this place you won't be disappointed

Went last night pre-theatre. Informed upon making rez time of our show 7pm and told server upon arrival. Order taken quickly by an unfriendly male server who would not give recommendation when asked. Told that changing primavera sauce to a pink sauce was +$2, no thanks. Salad and main course was served promptly. Friends who got chicken parm said it... More

This is a great place to take the family. It's an easy walk from the theater district and an easy walk to Penn Station. The whole family really liked this place.

On our last evening in NYC we walked along 9th Ave looking for a place to eat after a night bus tour of Brooklyn. We stopped at Pietrasantana and we were not disappointed. It is a lovely neighbourhood restaurant. The service was was great, the staff were very friendly. The food was delicious and plentiful. A very enjoyable experience.

not the most interesting or robust menu, but the service was excellent, we loved what we ordered (the Caesar salads were incredible), and the vibe was low-key. It felt like we were at a neighborhood restaurant -- exactly what we were seeking. I highly recommend Pietrasanta to anyone tired of the midtown neon crush. The osso bucco and gnocchi were... More
