We went for dinner as a party of 12. Our table was ready when we got there. We preferred to have a drink at bar first as some of our party was stuck in traffic. Service was great and did not rush us through our meal. We ordered appetizers, salad and a bottle of wine. The pasta is served al dente. If you do not like it that way, ask them to cook a little more. The only part of.the meal that was not great was dessert. All the rest of the meal was great. Restaurant was very affordable for new York city. Less than 500 for 12 people.

The Intermezzo Italian restaurant at 208 8th Avenue near 20th Street in New York was recommended to us several years ago by a local resident. We make a point of stopping by whenever we are in NYC. The food is fresh! The Caesar's salad doesn't lack for cheese and is well tossed. The pastas have been uniformly excellent in our experiences. The linguine with clams is superb -- lots of sizable clams (in the shells) cooked and tender -- one of my favorites. They have an early diners Price Fixed "Show Menu" that is very reasonable priced, especially for NYC. I added a tiramisu -- made the traditional way with lady fingers -- excellent.
The waiters are traditional New York -- very competent if a bit brusque at times. Service is superb. One example, we couldn't empty our water glasses as they were kept full!
Yes, we will be going back again.

I recently had a birthday gathering of 10 friends at Intermezzo. The drink specials were great. The food was good but not spectacular. At one point a staffer asked our group to lower our volume because other customers were complaining. Surprisingly, he did not admonish a bachelorette party that was noisier than us! All in all it was a fun evening. The decor is sleek and modern which gives the place an tinge of faux sophistication.

What a wonderful job they have done with the decor, menu and service. Even the drinks are fun. Intermezzo captures the neighborhood! I like lunch more than dinner because it is more quiet. Try the fusilli with sausage or the linguini with clams.
