Wonderful variety of Italian dishes. You can't go wrong! Their bottled sauces are great to continue the Italian fine dining experience in your own home. Unlike other facilities in the city, they're not slow yet they do not rush you.

It was raining, really raining and Patsy's was close by. TA said great rep, so we decided to brave the elements and try it. It was terrific and we will return no matter what the weather. We sat upstairs next to a long table of 13 priests (god awful funny, but I will tell you later). The food was outstanding.... More

I am a HUGE Frank Sinatra fan. Before traveling to NYC for business in Dec 2012, I did some research and decided that Patsy's HAD to be on the list to visit. I was not disappointed. Walking into Patsy's is like stepping back in time. It is one of (if not the most) welcoming restaurant I've ever been in. Sal... More

First time back in NYC in 12 years and visited one of my old favorite Italian restaurants and found they are still serving wonderful food with a friendly atmosphere. Gnocchi's were tasty but the stuffed Veal chop and Linguini Marechiare were both outstanding. Definitely a must try for anyone who likes Italian food. Its really amazing to have kept such... More

My wife's family is from Sorrento Italy so I was looking for a red sauce related restaurant to relive the old days. I found it in Patsy's Italian. I can see why Frank Sinatra would love this place. They make you feel like you are home, eating at the dining room table with the family. Everyone was so pleasant and... More

Managed to get a table - clearly a busy local place. Nice greeting and an authentic family feel to the place. Service was average, to the point of being forced and unnatural, but the food was very good. Another table had a birthday and the chef went out of his way to meet and greet.

Patsy's, by far has the best Italian food, desserts and atmosphere. The service was great we were seated right away and the employees service was excellent.

Loved every second of our dinner there. The restaurant is old school elegant...just as it probably was 50 years ago. Not saying it is shabby, quite the contrary, just very starched and elegant. We were asked if we preferred upstairs or down and we let the maitre d suggest the best table. He did very well as did everyone on... More

The main waiter was very rude, we had not even sat down and he wanted to take our drinks order. We asked for a drinks menu, but were told there wasn't one, not even a wine list. We had no idea how much anything cost. We had booked but were put right at the back of the restaurant, away from... More
