Description: "...Fagiolini's warm decor--amber walls and still-life paintings--provides a handsome showcase for some of Midtown's finest trattoria dishes. Travelers and neighborhood residents have kept this place busy since 1986..." --cuisine.net "...the assertive Penne Arrabbiata with bits of spicy sausage and Calamari Fritti with an incendiary fra diavola sauce are perfect examples of this trattoria's lusty and unpretentious style...the Chicken with Wild Mushrooms is simply catnip for Portobella mushroom lovers. Neighborhood residents, local business people and tourists from area hotels keep this gem humming through lunch and dinner....as if this bustling bistro didn't have enough going for it, most entrees with a salad are in the $10 to $15 range. --The American Express Collection

It was too close to the hotel and it's a tiny place. But food worth the visit. They also have an excellent wine list. My friend tried the Spinach lasagna that was amazing and I tried the spaghetti with meatballs (one of the best I've had). Good service and low prices.

Had to eat at House of Lasagna as part of an arranged work-related group thing. The service was great, kept the food coming and wine flowing. But the pre-determined menu was not really to my liking. We were only served spinach lasagna, which was disappointing because that is probably my least favorite kind. The spinach to other ingredients ratio was... More

Used to go to the other Fagiolini on 40th between Lexington and Park. That was more an Italian restaurant than a lasagna place. Although the food was good here, it was not as pretty a place as the 40th street restaurant where the atmosphere was charming. They do have an 'express lunch' where you are out with speed if time...

House of Lasagna (HOL) comes in two settings: the sidewalk level (entrance on Lex) is (I am told) pretty much a cafeteria style setting. We ate at "La Stanza of HOL". Gain entrance around the corner on 39th and go up the outside stairs. Here it's white table cloth and a step up in menu and beverage options. The nicer... More

Really enjoyed our meal which was right across from our hotel. Quick excellent pasta. Cosmos and martinis were only $5.00. They weren't large but excellent. It is a very cozy place. Only drawback was the manager/owner was in the back trying to reconcile checks and was having an issue which didn't add to the atmosphere but the excellent servers, service,... More

I've been watching a lot of The Garfield Show and it made me in the mood for lasagna, so naturally when we saw this place right down the street from our hotel we had to try it! It was so incredible! I actually ordered the spaghetti and meatballs, and my husband ordered the lasagna and we split both. It was... More

Was a little hesitant to dine here as it looked quite old fashioned from the outside. But I must say that my meal was the best Italian meal I have ever had, my wife also thoroughly enjoyed her meal. Highly recommended.

I went for dinner and was very surpised with some well cooked and tasty pasta. I tried the house specialty (lasagna) and my whife had raviolli... we loved it! We'll come back for sure. Quick service was a plus that night as well.

We dropped in for their 20 minute lunch, we're seated immediately, munched on some nice crusty and fresh bread with olive oil while awaiting our lasagna bolognese. It was exactly as expected, and we had our check in exactly 20 minutes. As advertised!!!
