We came here with another couple before going to a show. It's a real Italian restaurant. Having just visited Italy I can tell you it truly feels like you're in Italy. The food was excellent, the portion sizes weren't huge, but it was enough to fill us all up. We got lasagna and fettuccine Alfredo running us each about $20/plate.... More

Good quality food, nice selection on menu. Starters were a little on the large side. Main course was also a good size portion. Quite busy but not over crowded.

The restaurant has great potential. It has very homey environment. I visited the place for lunch. I felt that lunch choices were not as great as I would have liked. For example for some one who does not eat red meat, it should have choices such as salmon, branzino, tuna etc. I ended up selecting a chicken dish, although I... More

The front of the restaurant has the tourist "try me look" and you should. The menu has something for everyone. The food is well prepared. The staff has the appearance of being all related. You get the feeling that everyone is family and you kind of get treated like family as well. You are served by several generations each having... More

Restaurant was nice. Staff is friendly. Food was average and averagely priced. I had the eggplant fusili wich was $16 for a decent amount of pasta. No wait to get in on a Friday night.

We took lasagna and received it very quickly. It was clearly microwaved, the pastas were hard and the little amount of sauce seemed to be light tomato soup. There was no flavour and cost 18$. We were very disapointed. This restaurant would be perfect for Gordon Ramsay's kitchen nightmares. Avoid this restaurant!

It's a cliché to seek out an Italian eatery in New York; we first went to Via Italia in 2004 because it was close to our hotel and we couldn't be bothered walking far after traveling all day. Imagine our surprise when we happen to have walked into what remains the best Italian restaurant I've ever been to - and... More

My wife and I had spent a whole day walking Manhattan, and returned hungry to the theater district. We spotted this small place and took advantage of the early hour to dine. Italian was spoken by the staff so we had high hopes of authentic fare. The food was incredible and the waiter couldn't do enough for us. Folks, don't... More

We have been going to this restaurant for many years when our theater is nearby. We have always had a delicious meal, but more than that we have been treated like guests in the owner's home. Ask for his special olive oil and he races down to the kitchen to prepare it. We were welcomed back last night like old... More
