House of Lasagna, a midtown institution, has been delighting local business people, residents and visitors for almost 40 years.

All of our Lasagnas are hand-made, from the traditional Lasagna alla Bolognese, to more the more contemporary "Lasagna of the Day" made with organic and local farm-to-table ingredients.

Reservations for small groups are not required. Service is friendly and efficient and waiting time for tables is generally very brief. Plus, our pricing is always friendly!

Yes, of course our 20 minute express lunch is still $9.50 And Martinis & Manhattans are still $6 all day!

Average lasagne

Small cozy place with efficient service. The wine of the house was decent. My classic lasagna was ok. Could have been richer. My husband's arrabbiata was spicy, but the pasta was over cooked. I think the pizza we shared as a starter was a frozen pizza.

I tried one of the recommended lasagna's and my son had pasta with meatballs in a tomato sauce. My lasagna was a mix of sausages pulled prorc, chicken breast and god knows what,... More

We ate at this restaurant a couple of times. The service was brilliant together with the friendly staff and lovely atmosphere. Food was scrumptious, especially the bruschetta and lasagne. Would recommend to eat here.

The food was gray and our waiter was super. He explained the menu and gave great recommendations. The pasta was very fresh and cooked perfectly. Would recommend any of the special on the board. My only complaint was there is a flight of steps to descend to enter the restaurant. We probably will not return because it was too hard... More

There are times when I throw caution to the wind and just wander into restaurants and take my chances. This is one such occasion. This place looks pretty basic and has no pretences whatsoever. With an extensive menu and several daily specials including numerous Lasagna options, I opted for the Lasagna Bolognese served with a house salad. It was very... More

Went mainly for 4yo longing for lasagna but was pleasantly surprised by excellent pasta, service and salad! Shared 2 dishes between all of us and was plenty! Lovely friendly staff who were helpful to smaller children and their particular joys (cheese!) Would go again!

We're two Italian-American friends up from Philly for a short trip. I wasn't necessarily wanting to eat Italian when I can get plenty of that at home in Philly, but my friend was adamant about going for the express lunch special, lasagna bolognese for $10. I'm glad I went along with my friend! The tiny restaurant was crowded when we... More

Pasta nothing special...had the homemade pappardelle with bolognese special...wouldn't repeat. Caprese starter -- same mozzarella balls you buy at the grocery. Rather disappointing. Also, two restaurants in one, so if you look for the House of Lasagna it's also La Stanza, one and the same. A bit confusing.

The food served in the House of Lasagna is basic and unpretentious. As you'd expect, a lot of it revolves around lasagna but there are other dishes to be had, many of which feature handmade pasta. Service is quick and efficient. You won't spend much time lingering over the meal but that might be what you want...

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
