The food and service were very good, but not quite good enough to merit the very high price. In that way, it actually reminded me a lot of another nearby restaurant, Trattoria Dell'Arte. For an expensive Italian meal in a nice restaurant with great food and service in this neighborhood, Abboccato would be my top choice.

My husband and I, native New Yorkers, used to go to Patsy's when we were dating. We have lived outside New York ever since we married, but we return often to visit family. We were in New York for Christmas and took in a Broadway show and then had dinner at Patsy's with our son. What a treat! We had the fixed price dinner offered pre-theater from 3-7: a soup or pasta; salad; entree; dessert and coffee for $50. The food was delicious and the service was excellent--polite but not at all cloying.

Best of all, Sal, the owner/chef visited our table twice to see how our meal was going. We did mention that our wedding anniversary was in two days and that we had eaten there in our courtship years and were presented with a little gift. What's more we found out that coincidently he, my son, and I are graduates of the same New York City university and we commiserated about the college application process in which his own son is engaged. How nice is that!

We are so impressed at his hands-on, friendly approach and the good food and service in a restaurant that his family has operated since 1944. It seems like a labor of love. We'll be back. It felt like we had come home!

My family and I always eat here every year the weekend before Christmas. It is a wonderful place to eat. When you arrive, you are immediately greated with smiles and the smell of their delicious food. Every meal we have had has been amazing and the deserts are outstanding. This is by far our most favorite place to eat!!

We began spending Christmas Eve in NYC, dining at Patsy's and walking Fifth and Madison Avenues to celebrate the holiday. This was our third such celebration. Dining is at Patsy's and only at Patsy's. Not only is the food wonderful but the service is terrific. The Scognamillo's welcome you as though you are part of their family. It is just not the holiday without Patsy's.
