One of the simplest Italian restaurants I've been to. Its so simple and thats what makes it a fantastic place.
No celebrity presentations or a modified version.
Just perfect, how it should be. Food quality, excellent. Nothing extra, nothing less. Just perfect.
The only negative being the service, wasn't up to the standards I was expecting it to be.
Overall its a fantastic place. Do visit!

Thank RussellJoe

Just had a delicious lunch at Patsy's. I was welcomed as if I were an old friend. I love this restaurant not only because of the food but because it's such a part of New York history and few of these exist today. I'm grateful that Patsy's does - and still owned by the family!

We began coming to Patsy's 4 years back as part of our ritual anniversary dinner out in Manhattan. One year, we took the boys, and my wife decided to see if we could get a table at Patsy's without a reservation. Well, Grandpa S. listened politely to my wife's story about how important having our boys for our anniversary was, and--would you believe it--he set us up with a table then and there! She was in fifth heaven as were we all when we dove into the food and the St. Joseph's pastry. We went again this Saturday for my wife's birthday, and the usual good fare was augmented by Chef Sal visiting our table and promising to make the St. Joseph's Day pastry whenever my wife wanted--just give him two days' notice. These folks are the best.

We went spur of the moment to this place based upon a friends recommendation who is from NYC. They did not disappoint. The atmosphere was simple, but nice and the menu was the most complete Italian course oriented that I have ever seen without the fluff. The prices was surprisingly good for being near time square. This place was packed all through lunch, but the staff took care of us first class. The food quality was one of a kind. It took a while, but the portions were also very good. The bathrooms were strange and a bit dirty though. But the rest of the experience more than made up for it.

We had a great anniversary meal here. The spaghetti and meatballs were good, but the cannelloni was what you should be writing home about. Delicious blend of awesome fresh flavours. Overzealous water pouring was about the only thing to complain of.
