House of Lasagna, a midtown institution, has been delighting local business people, residents and visitors for almost 40 years. All of our Lasagnas are hand-made, from the traditional Lasagna alla Bolognese, to more the more contemporary "Lasagna of the Day" made with organic and local farm-to-table ingredients. Reservations for small groups are not required. Service is friendly and efficient and waiting time for tables is generally very brief. Plus, our pricing is always friendly! Yes, of course our 20 minute express lunch is still $9.50 And Martinis & Manhattans are still $6 all day!

Worth a visit.

A very enjoyable meal! After arriving in NYC, tired and in need of food. We found ourselves in House of Lasagne after looking at other places to eat. Surpringly nice food, happy & relaxed staff. Good experience. Would definitely go again. Handy for pod 39 hotel guests.

We stopped in on Wednesday evening at 8:00 PM and our group of four was welcomed and quickly seated inside. Located on the corner of 39th and Lexington, it was easy to find. Word of mouth guided us here, and we were ready for a hearty meal after a long ride from Boston. Our waiter was most excellent. Tudor explained... More

While the food was tasty, the portion sizes were very small. I also think the prices were expensive for the sizes of the meals. I would not go back again.

The first sign of potential disappointment was the cold, stale bread we were given upon arriving. I ordered the "home- made" gnocchi with pancetta. However, lots of tomatoe sauce, but only two small pieces of pancetta. Gnocchi was also cut with scissors and not hand shaped, so it looks rather unappetizing. My son and daughter had the lasagna. Quite average-... More

Super fast service and delicious homemade lasagna. The restaurant is not particularly fancy, so it is great for a casual dinner!

We cannot fault the food in this place, apart from the fact that we wanted more! Although, you need to really like garlic to enjoy their garlic bread, because it was very strong! Luckily, we do. They lost a star for automatically adding a tip to our bill. We are from the UK, and we believe that tips are earnt... More

We were pleasantly surprised at this cozy restaurant. The atmosphere was so comfortable and the food was excellent. Each entree also came with a complimentary salad which is very unusual in NYC.

While on business in NYC we had the good fortune of dining at "House of Lasagna." The lasagna was excellent and the bread crusty, just as it should be. The price is extremely reasonable, but, the portions are on the small side. If you are really hungry, I suggest ordering an appetizer. The desserts were excellent also. We sampled both... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
