I live in Chelsea and having been dining at LeZie practically from its opening. It is a favorite stand-by for me and my friends. I visited the other night for the first time in about two months and I noticed an improvement to the restaurant which made it more pleasant than ever. A slight decor change made the place look bigger and brighter. And the menu was much improved with the food being even more delicious than before. I am glad to see the restaurant surviving after all these years,and I am sure with the new improvements it will for some time to come. A great neighborhood gem.

Always skeptical about NYC Italian restaurants (when authentic, overpriced, crowded and noisy,) I am completely pleased by Le zie. Since 1990, each time I've come, have found fish very fresh, gnocchi and cicchetti worthy of their origin in Northeastern Italy, generous Negroni and comprehensive wine list: broad range in prices, annate and bouquet.. Deservedly popular. Celebrated a birthday here, hope to do so when I'm 75! Crowded if in front after 8. Try back bar earlier. Side bar good if waiting for friends- lovely waitresses.

Hard to judge italian when it is delivered. Maybe it is something about the containers which changes the flavor and texture. I recently had a delivery from this place. It was flavorless, boring and totally uninspired. I could get something like it in Kansas. That doesn't mean the restaurant is bad, it might just mean the food doesn't travel. Don't get delivery.

The food here is delicious. The back room is lovely and the staff is solid. Favorite Italian place in Chelsea, by far.

It took an hour to deliver one order of spaghetti and meatballs and a ceasar salad. The meatballs were uneatable- they tasted like rubber. The salad was terrible - iceberg lettuce - terrible portion size and 2 croutons. I would never order from here again.

I realized tonight that my social life has reached somewhat of a low point so in order to distract my self from this unfortunate new reality, I decided to order Italian food from a place that I had never tried before. I just moved to the neighborhood and I've always felt that it was important to have a good local Italian spot within a few blocks that provides a cozy dining experience for everyone from your parents or an awkward first date but also delivers so you can have the cozy without actually having to make any effort what so ever. As mentioned, I had been craving italian food...usually when I've been loafing around like a burnout I tend to crave pizza, but tonight I needed pasta, specifically spaghetti and meatballs. Le Zie not only had spaghetti and meatballs, but they claimed to have "The Best Spaghatti and Meatballs" so I ordered it. To my absolute delight, these were the best spaghetti and meatballs that I have had in the longest time..and they were delivered! I've been living in New York for most of my life and I've learned that if you order pasta to be delivered, it will arrive soggy and almost over cooked. This was not the case tonight! I will absolutely be ordering from this place again soon, most likely within the next ten days...unless my social life speeds up again. In which case maybe I'll make the trip to the actual restaurant and eat like a civilized human being instead of splayed out on my bed surrounded by old trash magazines and crushed diet coke cans.

We go here all the time. The staff is friendly and always professional. The food is always very good and often excellent! The bar is a true New York gem with is great atmosphere; for a quick meal we often choose to eat in the bar.
