We took some friends and family here after our ceremony. The service was very good and our waiter was extremely helpful with the menu. Our dinner's were good but not amazing as we were expecting. The desserts were AMAZING!! The freshest strawberries and real whipped cream tasted heavenly! The chocolate mousse cake was delicious. Overall a very good experience.

This is a great place. Old time Italian recipes, great bread, good wine list. Men cannot wear hats and you do feel a little intimidated by the quiet, but I've been many times and it's worth it. Great for after theater.

This is a top rated restaurant and an original going back over 3 generations of family chefs. Authentic Italian, very formal waiters but really enjoyable. We left not being able to fit in another thing. Loved being there.

Enjoyed our dinner at Patsy's! Group of five with reservations (highly recommend), waited a bit for 8:00 PM seating, but were pleasantly greeted by owner and wait staff! Enjoyed a variety of entrees all outstanding! Dessert was served family style size!! Enjoyed stepping back in time with authentic Italian ad great service!

I had read the Patsy's Cookbook, and was intrigued by the history of the restaurant and the great reviews the restaurant continues to receive. After visiting the restaurant, the high praise is well deserved. The food is perfectly prepared, but what especially distinguishes the restaurant from others, is the congeniality and graciousness of the family and its staff.

I asked about Clams Posilipo, that was mentioned in the cookbook, but wasn't on the menu. My server's reply was if I wanted it, the kitchen would make it for me. Nice! Joe Scognamillo was on the floor and stopped by our table and talked to us. We chatted for a while and I asked him if he would show us where Frank Sinatra sat when he dined there. He immediately agreed, and took us upstairs (which is closed for Saturday lunch). He also regaled us with many wonderful stories of the celebrities that dined there. But in the process, he made us feel just as valued and important as any of those he mentioned.

There were some additional special touches Joe did for our table that made our visit so very memorable, and we left feeling that we were part of the Scognamillo family. Thanks, Joe! We'll be back!
