    Worthy of a Table Dance...

    After a long day at work my mother and I decided to have a meal before the long trek uptown to Harlem. In the mood for Italian I found Maria Pia here on Menupages, and liked the menu and the prices. As with any new restaurant you are going to try, you hope for the best, it' s New York and really how bad could it be? Right? Well let's just say that from start to finish this was one of the most divine dinning experiences I have had in the city. The wine selection is extensive, the appetizers and salads were tasty, the caesar salad, flawless. Our main courses were to die for, mother had the FEGATO alla VENEZIANA, liver and onions, (not a choice I would have made, uck) but she said that the dish was the closest in taste and quality she's had since ordering the very same thing in Venice. I had the TORTELLINI alla NONNA, bite sized tortellini stuffed with meat in a creamy, buttery alfredo-like sauce with fresh peas and prosciutto. Talk about wanting to like my plate clean, (and if I was home I would have!) my goodness, it was heaven! And the piece de resistance, the end all to be all, the proverbial straw that broke to camels back, was the PANNA COTTA, served simply with mixed berries and mint, that was offered as a choice with the prix fix dinner, (my mother’s meal). The dessert elicited these immortal words from her lips, that by the way, prompted the manager to send over two complimentary glasses of a sweet after dinner wine, and I quote, "This makes me want to tap dance on the table!" If you love Italian cuisine, good wine, lovely atmosphere, and mouth watering food, then I beg of you to visit Maria Pia!!!! You will tell everyone you know, and be a regular customer if you are ever in the neighborhood.

    Great place

    Read the reviews and decided to try the restaurant. It was everything that was said about it and more. Definitely a plus for the theater district. Would not hesitate to recommend it.

    I Love Them!

    Took some out of town guests there after reading everybody else's reviews. Was definitely NOT disappointed. The service was top-notch and the food was DELICIOUS. Pasta was al dente , portions were generous and the meats were fresh . You've got to try the chocolate torte w/ hazelnut ice cream. Hands-down the BEST I've ever had (incl. restaurants in L.A.) The atmosphere was cozy with background chatter. Everyone had an awesome time.

    Excellent Meal and Service

    I went for a pre-theatre meal with 9 people. Service was excellent. Had appetizers and entrees, all prepared wonderfully and served piping hot. Next time will sit in the beautiful outdoor seating in the back.

    I must say that Maria Pia is perhaps the best Italian for the price. All the food we had was presentably, tasty and authentic. I just returned from Italy and it was comparable if not better. And it doesnt hurt to have a knockout hostess like Maria Pia. Will be back for more.

    Great Italian before a show

    Excellent all around, food, service, and atmosphere. No complaints. The outside back area is great and quiet and very relaxing. Great staff, they are very attentive, and its very reasonable priced for a nyc restaurant! Highly Reccomended

    Just plain really good.

    Everything was excellent. The food, service, and atmosphere were all superior. The prix fix menu is a great value, giving you the choice of salad, entree, and dessert. The shrimp and scallop skewers over rice pilaf lasted barely longer than the steak and potatoes. Be absolutely sure not to pass up dessert. The Penna Cotta was creamy and delicious, as was the hazelnut gelato. One of our new favorites.
