“The best spinach soup ever!!!”
Reviewed June 20, 2012

We loved this restaurant, everything was good. I do not remember it as being expensive. The spinach soup with fried mozzarella espuma was so good that we went back two days in a row

“Excellent choice!”
Reviewed May 21, 2012

Villa Pacri came highly recommended to us, so our group of 5 ate there this past Saturday nite. Everything was exceptional! The decor and lighting is very comfortable and pleasing. We were seated at a corner 'round' booth, so that we all had a view of the room. There was a DJ playing some '80s and current pop hits w/ an electronica beat to the tunes which added to the lightness and party-type atmosphere. At one point several women at a nearby table felt comfortable enough to get up and start dancing.

The menu is limted and very well balanced. There was something for everyone in our group.
Several of us started w/ a mozzarella-type cheese w/ a very creamy center. I was told that Villa Pacri flies this specialty in from Italy everyday to ensure the freshest possible taste. It was truly fabulous.

Our main courses ranged from salmon to sole, chicken and the veal. Each of us raved about our choice!

The dessert: I was there celebrating my birthday, and I am guessing that someone in our group tipped off the staff because dessert showed up w/o seeing a menu. It was unbelievable! We were served a fresh-from-the oven flourless chocolate ganache cake that will satisfy any chocolate lovers' cravings. The piece-de-resistance of the dessert was a huge sundae bowl w/ enough ice cream, cake, chocolate syrup and who-knows-what else that was placed in the center of our table for everyone to help themselves at will. It was a delicious combination!

The service at Pacri is very attentive and friendly, but not overbearing. The wait staff knows when to show up and when to stand aside.

Villa Pacri, I will return on my next trip to NYC!

“A bistro owned by an italian!”
Reviewed May 6, 2012

i had one of my best dinner experience at La Gazzetta!
Food is delicious but the service done through eastern europe ladies a bit unprofessional. I asked twice to change seat when i went there in october 2011 and they were acting like i was asking them their blod, totally unacceptable considered the level and the price of the restaurant. Besides this what i can say ? That the food is amazing, very italian amd there is a nightclub which entrance is downstairs where the restrooms are located. To try, once at least!

“A nice place for an impromptu lunch”
Reviewed December 1, 2011

We stopped into La Gazzetta unplanned, as we happened to be in the neighborhood one afternoon. The outdoor sidewalk seating would have been a nice place to enjoy a meal on a warmer day. I had a simple pasta dish that was very tasty and a great tasting Bellini. There were a number of specials on the chalkboard, but i chose from the regular menu. The tables were very small inside, and the service was good but not terribly warm.
