“The best meal we had on our New York vacation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2014

We went to Patzeria for an early dinner before a play. Great restaurant, friendly and super efficient staff. Water was always filled without asking, great recommendations on the menu, etc.,. I had the lasagna and hubby had spaghetti and meatballs. We also ordered the garlic knots. Amazing but be warned it is a lot of food! We didn't order it but the pizza looked amazing. Very relaxed and comfortable atmosphere. They make you feel like an old friend. Best food and service we had at any restaurant in NYC. Will go back again in a heart beat.

“Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2014

Very good food, excellent friendly service and very reasonable prices. A little noisy for this lone-travelling Englishman but hey - this is New York City after all!

“Were we at the same restaurant?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2014 via mobile

Based on good reviews on TA and Yelp, we went along for dinner.

The food was good, though I suspect our dishes had been completed with a bit of a gap as my main was not hot, barely warm in some parts.

Service was what made this review only 3 stars. We seemed to be largely ignored, and more often than not had to keep asking for service. Even getting the check took 15 minutes...

So overall good but not great food, great value for money, but below average service the night we went.

“Average quality”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2014

In course of our New York trip we were searching for some culinaric higlights on tripadvisor.
As the Patzeria was located very near to our hotel at Times Square and rated very high we gave it a try. For American cousine the food was ok but not from the Quality and taste we expected! The Restaurant was quite packed and very noisy.
As a summary it can be said that this Restaurant more than overrated on tripadvisor (as many Restaurants in New York)
