My wife and I came here with a friend from NYC when we were visiting. This is our friend's favorite Italian restaurant, and we can understand why. The menu was very interesting, with several dishes that required some explaining by the waiter. I ended up having pasta with calamari in a calamari ink sauce. It was so black that it... More

We had a very enjoyable meal at PPT. Waiter was great, explaining menu items, specials, and even other choices not on the menu. He also suggested a good Italian beer. Everything was very fresh and seemed homemade. Prices quite reasonable for NYC. Nice neighboorhood. Restaurant interior is a throwback to a simpler time. Tin ceiling and modest decorations. Many family... More

What a lovely little spot, has that really authentic Italian feel that I love to find here in North America! The wild mushroom risotto was absolutely perfect and my partner had a beautiful, simple linguini and marina sauce that was also just delicious. Service was excellent and prices very reasonable. We would highly recommend this spot for a meal if... More

I have eaten here many times and never had a bad meal or something that I did not enjoy. Everything is always delicious and cooked to perfection. The seafood is among the best dishes. The seafood fra diavolo is one of my favorites. Any of the seafood specials they have, whether it's frutti di mare (bonus if they are offering... More

Went to this restaurant because it was on Restaurant.com. Got there at 6pm on Saturday and got a table right away (without a reservation) even though the restaurant is relatively small (about 12 tables). Restaurant pretty noisy - poor acoustics (tin ceiling). Service was very good and food was fine though not spectacular. Portobello mushroom appetizer was extremely tasty though... More

We were wandering around trying to find a restaurant for dinner on a Wednesday night. Everywhere we stopped was full and/or had a wait. We just happened to come upon Trattoria Pesce Pasta. We were seated immediately. Prices are reasonable for New York and the food was very good. Our waiter was friendly and attentive. We definitely eat here again.

Once again Pesce Pasta does- not- fail- to- deliver! I have been coming here for many years with Mom & Dad, who were coming here almost religiously on Saturday Night. Arsenio bought the place from the original owner and the food and the place have remained the same. Small, quaint, pleasant atmosphere, about 12 tables that seat 2 to 6.... More

The first time I went to the Pesce Pasta Trattoria was in 2010 during my first visit to NYC. My husband shared melon with prosciutto which was delicious. As entree I had homemade lobster ravioli and my Italian husband seafood risotto, both were excellent. Recently, we went again to Pesce Pasta Trattoria with some of my husbands Italian relatives and... More
