I was really looking forward to eating at the House of Lasagna after passing it so many times in Murray Hill. It is such a beautiful little restaurant and it has the nicest look to it, very homey and very welcoming.
The service was excellent...and my waiter was wonderful that evening. Very attentive without being overwhelming and the food came out in a timely manner. This was easy as there were only three other people in the restaurant.
I have to say though even with the atmosphere and the service both being great, the food was just okay. I had the Caesar Salad which was the best part of the meal. It was really fresh, cool and the dressing was excellent and I devoured that.
I had the Lasagna Bolognese for my entree and I was not thrilled with it. It looked and tasted like a lasagna that had been made in a big batch, cut and then served with a meat sauce. The meat sauce was not that great either. It tasted pretty standard. It also looked like it had been sitting in a hotel pan for a while. They could have at least put the sauce on top of it to give it a better appearance.
The wine I had that evening which was a white wine by the glass had no taste to it and tasted watered down. It was cold but did not have much of a flavor to it. I was going to have it changed but I did not want to make a fuss. I should have stuck with an ice tea.
The evening was not a loss though as it was nice to sit and relax. Still I was not impressed by the foodMore
The food is delicious and well prepared. The pastas are wonderful, as well as, the chicken dishes and salmon which are tender. The portions are generous and the prices reasonable. Give it a try, you won't be disappointed!!
House of Lasagna is open again and I was thrilled they were back!!! The food is consistently delicious and well presented. Just had the burrata/red pepper appetizer (so good it could be dessert!!) and pasta fagioli soup, chicken marsala and tiramisu for dessert. All of...it was outstanding!!
The service is always impeccable and welcoming.
If you are not in the mood to cook, and want quality food or are meeting friends, date, even business associates, this is a perfect place. The prices are very reasonable as well.
As a world traveler I tend to be discerning and picky and there are very few places that are in this category of quality. You must see for yourself!!More
Visited here on trip to NY. Traditional setting with no frills, I try to eat locally and give my custom to local people rather than chains. Food on the whole was ok, I had the spinach lasagne which was good but heavy, the broccoli pasta...could Hv ave been tastier with a sauce. Staff were attentive but the atmosphere was a little somber. Only one more diner present when we were there. The waiter presented us with our bill straight after we’d finished eating which was odd but it was because all the staff were eating there dinner at another table, maybe that’s common but it felt like they were trying to hasten our departureMore
We chose this restaurant because it was close to our accommodation. We were hungry and made no mistake about choosing a restaurant. It was not expensive and the waiter was polite. The ambiance is simple.
My first impression was good: crisp white linen tablecloths, old framed posters, gilded mirrors and subdued background jazz, all good. Then we order and everything is disappointing: the lasagna is as mushy as they come, my guess is it was previously frozen and now rewarmed...in the microwave, it's inedible. The spaghetti with pesto sauce and mushroom are so rich, I leave almost all on the plate: in addition to the pesto, I can distinguish blue cheese, butter and cream in the sauce, bread is not Italian, the house wine is in the first stage of fermenting and the espresso – watery. To avoid.More
A couple of my friends told me to check this place out. My wife and I went for lunch a couple of days ago. I had the bolognese lasagna, and the pasta was incredible. I was struck by how the pasta melted in my mouth,...which made the dish lighter than the lasagna pastas I'm used to eating. The meaty sauce was equally pleasing. I didn't think I would finish the lasagna when I first saw the portion they serve, but I couldn't stop eating it. My wife enjoyed her dish as well, and we split a cheesecake which was a delicious end to a great meal. We will definitely be recommending this place to our friends and family as well! The service was outstanding too. Nothing negative to say here!More
