“Returning to Intermezzo for our 21st anniversary”
Reviewed March 21, 2014

We went to Intermezzo on our first date 21 years ago. Glad to report that it has kept pace with the times and offers a very good dining experience. The dining is bright and cheerful with good space between the tables. The bar service was excellent - yummmmie martinis. The menu with lots of affordable choices. We shared a beet salad and the cavatelli with lamb ragu and each of us had the special that night, Chilean sea bass which was delicious! Service was friendly and professional. We each had our own desserts to cap the night off. Looking at my husband across the table after 21 years made me thankful to have met such a wonderful man and appreciate all the things good and not so good that we've shared together. Glad that Intermezzo fits in the good category.

“Consistently Great!”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

I have been going to Intermezzo since it 1st opened many years age & it has remained consistenly great! The prices are very reasonable & the quality of the food excellent. I once brought an elderly friend from Italy, who used to make her own pasta, to dinner there one night & she gave it a hearty "thumbs up"!!

“This is our "go to" local and take out Italian”
Reviewed February 10, 2014

Intermezzo has gone through a number of face lifts over the years but the food has remained consistently good and a nice value. I am embarrassed how often we order pasta from them and pick up dinner on the way home. We eat in the restaurant often too. Only down side is brunch on Sunday if you are looking for something quiet but great if you are loud and proud! We recently had an early dinner reservation at 5:30 with elderly friends and brunch was still going on! We went next door to Tello.

“Used to be better”
Reviewed November 28, 2013

Have eaten in this Chelsea Restaurant a number of times over the years. The food used to be pretty good, but now everything is just so-so. Menu changes & edits have nixed the couple of dishes that stood out for me. Staff has gotten indifferent & a bit snippy. This place is trying to do a number of things to stay afloat, such as hosting private parties Sat. & hiring drags to camp it up for Sun. brunch.

“Just okay”
Reviewed September 28, 2013

Been here several times because of its convenience for the pre fix. Pastas are generally fine, but portions are on the small side. Staff is fine. Just an average Italian meal.
