I’ve been going to Puglia over the past 40 years, and it never disappoints. Whether with 20 friends for a birthday celebration or a business dinner to say thank you , everyone engages in this authentic Little Italy red sauce ristorante. When Jorge starts singing,...the crowd goes wild! A five star ( and napkin waving ) experience.More

Wonderful restaurant- great for celebrating birthdays. We were here celebrating my mom’s and nephew’s bday. The live music (band and singer) was great and they really had everyone up and dancing. The food was scrumptious and they provided very generous portions. Guaranteed to have a...great time if you come here!More

First we had called here for a reservation about 2 months ago for my daughter's college graduation supper period they told us they were blocked both times. On the day that we are going for supper we walk down by pough hills just to see...if there was any room sure enough there were tons room period and there was 12 of us and he said yeah no problem come on in. The waitress was kind of rusty she wanted appetizers and food all at once I guess she was wanting to get everything put together in one long time period. Food was great but service was lacking. Bus boys did most of the work waitress did not even come back to check on drinks for the table or ask if we want to dessert. The bill came and I paid for it no sooner did she take the billfold she came back and asked if service was good And the food was good. I told her things were great and then she would proceed to say that I did not give her enough tip money. She stated she lives on tips and the tip was not sufficient. I was taken back by her comment as I work in the service industry also and have never gone back to a client and said the tip was insufficient. For this reason I'm giving them a low rating due to the fact that waitress wasRequesting more money for a tip which should be up to the individual not the server to determine the tip.More

We were not prepared for how rowdy this restaurant was! Groups are seated at long tables right next to other groups, so you have to either make friends or really lean in to hear the members of your own group speak. We were right next...to the 2-person band that played a 20-minute set at top volume, including (literally) a song when everyone was supposed to stand on their chairs and wave their napkins. The food itself was quite good: hearty portions, good flavors and textures. Our server was really surly with us. He walked off having taken a drink order for only 2 of 3 people in our group, and forgot to bring things we ordered twice. And he was not at all amused when we asked to have a table further from the music--it's ok that it wasn't possible to reseat us, but at least don't be angry we asked. So overall, the rowdy energy and surly waiter overshadowed the pretty good food.More

Great food and lots of it! In the heart of Little Italy, NYC. On the cramped side-call it cozy. Delicious and fast. Lively staff.

Food needs more seasoning. It was really bland. Salad was very good. Music was nice but was a little too loud.

Awesome group meal. We had 23 teens and 6 adults for a total of 29 people. The food was fabulous and the staff was great to everyone. We have a lot of fussy teens in the group and everyone LOVED it. For so many, it...was their favorite meal the whole time in New York. I would bring a group here again.More

Not a great start as the waiter was a bit rude but from there on in it was fantastic. We sat with two couples from Philly who where great company and when the entertainment started it just added to the atmosphere. To be honest the...food was good but the company and atmosphere created by the entertainment made our night. Definitely worth the visit if you are lucky enough to time it right.More

The place is in a busy area, full of people. a small place typical for Italian cuisine. You can enjoy pasta or Pizza mainly. Portions are good and prices are fair.

The food itself was solid. Chicken Parm was decent. Have had better and have had far worse. Not sure the food is worth the trip to Little Italy, but it was good. The atmosphere itself, however, was awesome. There was live music, specifically a couple...playing a variety of tunes. It was gloriously tacky, like an SNL skit. Everyone had a great time and left with a smile on their faces.More

Our last night in New York on a holiday we had waited for three years, our booking was accepted at 9pm but they couldn’t wait to get rid of us from the restaurant, it seemed like someone had accepted our booking and had made a...mistake for doing so. The food ordered was not what came out to us, even though very nice food indeed, and while we were eating the food, the waiter came up three times to try to take the plates away, even though we had clearly not finished. When challenged about these issues, it was stated that they would decrease the service charge by 50% but then added on a credit card fee for using a Revolut card. We hadn’t occurred a few for using this card the previous two weeks in four states we had travelled.More

If you’re into loud live music singing with some dancing & huge portions this is the place for you. Unfortunately it was incredibly busy and the service was incredibly slow. So much so that we saw at least 2 couples leave because they weren’t served....The food is good, the prices reasonable and if you’re in the right mood with the right group of people it’s worth a visit. If your looking for a quiet chilled meal this is not the place.More

We stopped into this restaurant after reading the reviews on here, we turned up without a reservation in the evening and they accommodated us with no fuss at all, the food was proper old school Italian and was fantastic. They had a music act on...of a couple that I can only describe as old lounge bar, they were so shockingly bad it was brilliant and it really made our night. Would definitely return here the next time we are in the big apple for sure.More
