We were in town recently for the marathon and ate at Patzeria twice -- once for breakfast and once for dinner. The atmosphere at breakfast was cheerful and bustling. We ordered OJ, coffee (diner-style -- only so-so) and full breakfasts. We both had eggs over hard, toast and potatoes. The bacon was good, but my friend had ordered with ham and was expecting more of a real slab of ham. Instead, the ham was more like the thin Oscar Meyer ham. Service was friendly and we enjoyed the atmosphere. After doing our first marathon -- we proudly staggered in that evening wearing our medals. The front tables and servers alike broke into applause which set the stage for a very fun evening. Although we had no reservation, the host quickly found us a table in the corner next to the bar. I ordered the Chicken Principessa with asparagus, tomato and mozzarella cheese. The food was tasty, but more than that, we really enjoyed the buzz of the place. The only downside to our particular table was that there was a TV directly over my head, so my friend across the table found it a bit distracting. Then again -- we were up against the bar, so not unexpected. (I personally can't stand TVs in a restaurant but it is sometimes hard to avoid). We would definitely go back!

It looks nothing from the outside but this place has great Italian food and a fantastic buzz. Really good value and worth booking ahead as there is always a queue outside for pre-theatre. I can't recommend it enough.

Food & prices were good, the decor was very nice, but the friendliness of the owners & staff are what got us to come back almost every day of our 5 days. Breakfast (loved the french toast), supper (chose Italian entree), & one night for cheesecake after a show. It was just around the corner from the hotel, so that helped with our decision to return, but the way they treated everyone was the real draw.

NOT your run of the mill "Italian" restaurant - The Owners take great pride in their place, as they should. Food is off the charts. My fav is the Chicken Francaise. In the heart of the Theater District, great place to go before & after the show ! Staff is friendly & John the Bartender should have his own stand up show on Broadway :) Don't pass this Gem up. Bon Appetit !!

5 stars based on value, atmosphere, and quality of food and service. We were a table of four with mixed meal choices.......all of us were very happy with what we chose. We will definitely be visiting again!
