We visited Paty's recently. They are a great family spot, able to accommodate larger groups (we had 8, another party had 21!) and while not too loud, loud enough that kids are not going to bother anyone. But don't go here for a quiet night out.

Both the pizza and salad were really good. Best pizza in NY? I won't go that far- it was really good but not better than many pizzas I have had in NY or elsewhere. But they had a good selection of the classic NY pizza joint staples like pizza (of course), calzone, and salads. They also had more than just the old school Italian salad which was a nice surprise.

The chocies of wines by the glass was pretty limited. In 1980 this might have been fine but today we know wines from all around the world can be easily had so it would be good to have more than just 'house' reds (3-4) and whites. This wouldn't ruin the evening for most people but it is an area where things could be better.

Service is definitely the weak point. They forgot about a party of 20 and had to move us after we were seated and settled. That apparently pressed the reset button for the waitress and she disappeared as if we needed to start our review of the menu all over again. She remained elusive all evening right up through sending out a search party to get the check.

Wife and I looking for a great pizza on the west side. Found Patsy's and couldn't be happier. Best lunch we could have asked for.

I'm a native New Yorker and pizza is a central part of my diet and this place is the best place to get pizza on Manhattan Island. The crust is crunchy and chewy, and the sauce is perfectly seasoned, and the fresh mozzarella is to die for. If you're not in the mood for pizza, the pasta dishes are also outstanding.

This place also serves the best cranberry juice I've ever had.

The food is great - service just so so "service with an attitude" - and if you try to eat in the restaurant, the families with loud children can make it feel like more of a fast food place than a real restaurant. We keep giving it a try because the food is really very good - but the aggrevation you experience really ruins the experience. So if you have kids and don't mind spending $35 for a cheese pizza this would be the place to go. If you want a nice couples pizza - order to go.

My wife and I had a hankering for pizza during our recent visit to New York, and went to Patsy's on 74th on the recommendation of the doorman at our hotel, a few blocks away. We knew good things were to come when we had their bread, which we dipped in olive oil, while awaiting our pizza.

The pizza crust was super (and quite crispy, as my wife had requested), and the sauce and cheese very tasty. The basil leaves on the top were an extra treat.

The restaurant has a bit of an old world look - lots of wood.

Service was prompt and pleasant.
