The food is amazing at this place and although I have been here several times, it was my first interaction with their nasty and blatantly rude bartender. My friend wanted to sample the three sangrias that they offered and he turned around and told him he was a pain in his a**. Then I overheard him say to someone, "I... More

Went there on a Groupon on Monday night...Labor Day night. Even without the Groupon, prices were VERY reasonable. Food was excellent!! I had lamb shank...was delicious. Also had a glass of red sangria which was also excellent. I highly recommend Intermezzo!!

Overall good experience. We appreciated that they honored our reservation on time since we were going to a concert at Madison Sq Garden. Service was good as was the food. We split a risotto and seafood entree as well as a Caesar salad and 2 appetizers. Calamari was light and delicious!

NYC has hundreds of Italian restaurants. We found Intermezzo to be a cut above the rest. We went with a restaurant.com coupon, and were happy we tried it. The place looks like it could be in Italy. The decor is pleasant and the chandelier in the middle of the place looked distinctly European. The bread was delicious, served with a... More

Intermezzo is a moderately priced Italian restaurant in Chelsea. its has both inside and outside tables (on the sidewalk). The atmosphere is pleasant and the service good. The food is what you would expect for the prices, not great, but adequate. The restaurant can be recommended to those who do not have a big budget but would like to eat... More

Went here whilst visiting NY on our honeymoon, we found a few restaurants along 8th ave and decided to dine at Intermezzo as it wasn't overly crowded.. The food tasted great and till this day I still remember how delicious my steak was along with the tasty pesto type sauce.

I would have to say this is one of the best Italian meals i ever had. The service was flawless from beginning to end. The bread with the seasoned olive oil was so good. I had a three course meal that was good (caprese, penne alla vodka and an apple dessert) and 2 rounds of white sangria. The pricing was... More

Intermezzo is in Chelsea and has a nice ambience. They have a fixed price lunch for $8.95 that includes soup or salad and then an entree. I had a Caesar salad and then Penne Margherita with fresh basil and mozzarella. It was terrific. My friend and I celebrated her birthday and enjoyed wine and dessert, which were extra. The food...
