    Disappointed given other reviews

    After reading the reviews we were looking forward to our meal and were really disappointed. The chef seemed to have forgotten seasoning his food including the lack of garlic in the spaghetti vongole. We ordered both fish and a veal dish. They were okay but really nothing special. While attentive, the waiter seemed eager to sell us higher priced wines. The setting itself seemed nice but there are better places around.

    Nice Little Restaurant

    The perfect place for a pre-theater dinner, Maria Pia is reasonably priced and the food is surprisingly delicious. We stuck with the basics and were blown away by the chicken parmiagiana. The atmosphere is also family-friendly.

    Nice Place

    Went Saturday night with a 6:30 pre-theatre reservation, but was not seated until 7PM - they have 2 seatings, 5 & 6:30, and the earlier patrons were not leaving - ended up having enough time but felt a bit rushed. They were very apologetic, offered free dessert which we took them up on AFTER our show, and they threw in cappucinos as well, plus a free bottle of wine for our next visit - now, this is customer service. I have been before, but my 3 friends were not, and they all enjoyed the great food & servce. Good value and the food was delicious, fresh & nice sized portions. I would highly recommend this place for a nice meal in a very homey place, with excellent service as well.

    Nice Little Find

    Took my mother here after reading reviews on this site. Was a little cramped, but food was good. The crab cake appetizer is very good and so is the chocolate torte with hazelnut gelato for dessert. Very reasonably priced. I have been reccomending it to lots of friends. Will definitely return.

    Great food and service

    Arrived on time for my reservation and was seated immediately. After just looking at the wine list for a second a server was next to me to see if I cared for a glass. I wasn't but ordered water instead. Offered regular water or sparkling water. The food....oh my lord the food. My sister had the caesar salad and like others have said, would have licked the plate clean if it wasn't for me telling her to calm down. I had the Chicken Parmigiana with angel hair pasta and the chicken was huge! We were both offered Cracked Pepper or freshly grated cheese. I couldn't finish my meal and was disappointed that I couldn't. Now onto Dessert--Where to even begin. They have a huge selection but we both couldn't say no to the Warm Chocolate Torte with Hazelnut Icecream. The presentation of the food was gorgeous. With a sprig of mint and a white chocolate stick adding a dash of color. The hazelnut icecream was sandwiched between a piece of cookie. All since of class went out the window and I was actually considering licking the plate clean this time. The servers were efficient and were always available on the floor. But it never felt like they were hovering over you which was nice especially in such a small area. Just a great experience for us on our first day ever in New York City...and they had us out in time for us to catch our musical, Wicked.

    Great pre theater dinner

    Good food, good prices, excellent service. Little noisy inside. Hazelnut tiramisu was fabulous. Pre fix dinners are a great deal. Give it a try.

    Delectable!!

    While spending a week in New York, I had opportunities to dine at many restaurants. Without a doubt, this was one of the best. I ordered the liver and onions, and if I had been in the privacy of my own home I may have licked the plate. It was better than candy. My dining companions had three varied pasta dishes and raved about the sauces. Portions were generous. My only suggestion would be to turn up the air conditioning. . .it was quite warm in the resraurant.
