There are restaurants that arrive with promise but soon disappoint and disappear. Patsy's has maintained the highest level of Italian food preparation for most of my lifetime (and I am old). It is not inexpensive, but for the quality and quantity of Italian classic dishes, there is great value here. The cannelloni -- hard to find-- is memorable. Thick, perfectly... More

Dinner at this traditional Italian family restaurant was terrific. Greeted at the door and seated quickly. Excellent start with salads and fried calamari. Their calamari was perfectly cooked, not greasy. My wife and I had veal parmigiana. Perfectly cooked. Modified the sides with no problems. Very attentive service. A long time traditional restaurant in NYC which still delivers an excellent... More

Patsy's is the greatest! This restaurant has it all and more. The atmosphere is classic. The service is outstanding. The food is to die for. Can't find what you want on the menu...ask and they will fix it for you. My favorite dish is eggplant parmesan with puttanesca sauce (not on the menu). To top it all off, Patsy's is... More

Wow...... After 4 days in NYC, of exploring, walking, bussing and cramming as much in as possible, today we ended up searching for the CBS studios. After the trip around Brooklyn, subway ride to midtown and Rockefeller Center, Radio City Music Hall, and NBC we went on a walking adventure to find CBS. With hunger pangs setting in, we settled...

We visited after having dined there over 20 years ago. Service was good, food was tasty. Very busy. You get a good dinner for what are not crazy prices, considering it's NYC.

We stopped in to Patsy's this past Saturday evening for dinner. Despite being full they did the very best to accommodate us. From the time we walked into the door everyone was beyond friendly. Our service was impeccable. I can't say enough about how good our food was and the sauces tasted so fresh. We all finished our plates. The... More

We weren't dressed appropriately (jeans and hoodies) after walking through time square all day, but we were craving fettuccine Alfredo and no had reservations, but they treated us with respect, found us a table, and the meal was tasty and the service prompt. I love NY.

A great place, people are so friendly, 1st time there and felt like we go once a week! We did not have a reservation and they squeezed us in by chance. Gnocchi was fabulous and the veal was so tender it melted in your mouth. Dessert, o.m.g. - the best f od experience ever! Go!

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
