    Been a regular for over 7 years!

    I have been a regular for over 7 years. This lovely Italian restaurant has been consistently delicious each and every time I stop in or order delivery. My friends even make special visit to my apartment so that we can eat out here. Believe me its definitely a must anytime you are visiting the Hells Kitchen area.

    Favorite of all NYC Eats

    I am not sure if the negative reviews were just having a bad day or went to a different place.... but 44 Southwest is a must stop for me when I visit Manhattan. No, it is not a 5 start experience, but it is popular with a lot of regulars and the food is very good, and reasonable. The decor is "very NY," unlike the areas around time square, which has become very "Disney." In the city this coming weekend, and you can guess where at least one meal will be!

    Poor Service, Average Food

    The food is okay about what you'd expect for a pre-theater restaurant on the lower end of the price scale. We had an unpleasant experience with the service, however. Our reservation was at 6:00, and we showed up on time. We didn't receive our dinner until 7:30 with a show at 8:00. The entire time we waited, with increasing levels of stress, for our food, the waitress was eating her own dinner at the bar and chatting with friends, with occasional breaks to check on other tables.

    Been a regular for years.

    I am stunned that this wonderful place would garner a bad review! I have had wonderful meals here almost every time I come. The pizzas a thin and fabulous. The Chicken 44 is special. The calamari is always done to perfection in my experience. If I have to spend money to eat out, I would rather spend it here than at some of the big tourist Italian places! I like that it is small and intimate and not loud. Many theatre people come here because of the quality. It feels like home.

    Not unless everything else is closed

    Stopped in here after chatting with owner on the street. Should have known better, and won't make that mistake again. The food was less than exciting, and the dated interior made it almost depressing. Might be great for a set in a period piece, but certainly not a hint of today in the atmosphere. Service was OK, but our waitperson was unable to even suggest a wine, needed to call a colleague. Very disappointed and certainly would not recommend. Disappointed California Girl

    My favorite Italian place in Midtown!

    Food is always excellent, in my opinion, especially seafood dishes - particularly fresh. Reasonable prices for Midtown dining, and generous portions to boot. Knowledgeable waitstaff, though perhaps a bit overworked during the theatre crowd rush. I prefer to go later in the evening to avoid all that. All in all, definitely worth the 1 or 2 times a week that I eat there, and highly recommended.

    Circa 1993

    Steer clear of this place unless you have a craving for atmosphere and cuisine circa 1993. The restaurant is filled to the brim with bridge and tunnel theater goers - some even heading to see young frankenstein.
