Wonderful family. Wonderful service. They really hustle but make you feel relaxed. The food is amazing and they are happy to tailor orders to your liking. We have enjoyed most things on the menu and have always been thrilled. Their red sauce should be bottled.

Have been coming to Patsy’s for years with my family and it’s one of our favorites! The antipasto, rigatoni sorrentino, and chocolate mousse are all so good and the waiters and Sal could not be more friendly and Old School Italian. Frank Sinatra loved this...place and so do we! Very close to the theaters and they have a special pre-fixe menu as well.More

Make a reservation as this is a popular eatery and well-worth it! Had the chicken Parmesan. It was delicious and enough to share. Ate at the bar as we didn't have a reservation. Bar service excellent. Great assortment of wines. Had the Chianti Reserve. Yum!!!!

Perfect place for food lovers! I tried this place for the first time and my experience was pretty nice. The staff greeted me with a slight smile on their face and what to say about food, it was just amazing. Kudos to the services!

The restaurant has two levels with small tables spaced very close together. Several wait staff were providing service to our table for 2. I had the chicken marsala and my husband had the tortellini – both were respectable. Good bread and salads. We reserved here...for an early dinner before a Peter Frampton concert. After dinner, we walked 17 blocks to MSG – hey, this is New York and there was plenty to see and it was a very nice late summer evening.More

We had heard a radio interview with Patsy’s owner and wanted to try this restaurant. Our waiter, Nick, was great! Treated us well, made some recommendations and went above and beyond fussing over my 9 year old niece and nephew! Food was average...had anticipated the...food would be better. Atmosphere was nice. Great old photos of celebs!More

Went and tried this after seeing the reviews, Great food but overpriced for an Italian. There are more reasonable priced Italian eateries in Manhattan.

The restaurant is right off Time Square/Broadway. Though I live several hundred miles away, I’ve made it my practice to eat my birthday dinners there last several years. Terrific red sauce dishes and simply the best meatballs I’ve had, and I’ve ordered them all over...the world-often to waiters who roll their eyes. The establishment has been in the same family for decades. It was reputed to be Sinata’s Favorite, and his photos adorn the walls, along with those of countless celebrities.More
