    Low-pressure gem

    I've been here four times, and every time I go I'm amazed it isn't mobbed--amazed, and grateful. The food is great, and it's mostly classics; if you're looking for something you've never heard of before, this probably isn't the place for you. Same for trendiness: Notaro is nice but not a scene. Service is amazing--they make you feel special, will offer to make anything you want even if it's not on the menu, but don't hover and linger so that every time the conversation gets going you're interrupted. It's also quiet enough to talk, and a fantastic value for Manhattan. Not a lot of twenty-somethings; just an easy, yummy, comparatively cheap place for a nice meal.

    bad food and overpriced

    I have never written a review before, but my dinner from Notaro made me angry enough to warn away others. My portion of gnocci al pesto was small, the gnocci mushy, and the pesto was awful. . . with a skin on top of the whole dish. It didn't even resemble pesto; It was the color and heavy consistency of split pea soup, exceptionally bland, without the slightest hint of basil. If any flavor at all, I sensed a bit of frozen creamed spinach. You know how processed foods sometimes have a plastic flavor? That's what I'm talking about. The only good thing I can say is they delivered quickly, but what does it matter if you can't eat the dish? Plus it cost me $20 after tip. Stay away.

    Fabulous food!!!

    The food is great and the atmosphere even better. Prices are really reasonable for Manhattan. A real find in this neighborhood.

    Great food for decent price

    I ordered a couple of things for pick-up one night. The chicken was great, penne a la vodka great sweet and darker sauce. The food was top quality for a pretty reasonable price. The owner was extremely nice and welcoming. We spoke at the bar for a while. I will definitely go back and dine in when I get the chance. Highly recommend this place!!

    avoid

    Granted I can be picky when it comes to Italian food, but the lunch I had here was disgraceful. The salmon smelled fishy, the gnocci had no taste and was overcooked and the fettucini too had not an ounce of flavor to it. The place may not be expensive, but I'ld still recommend spending a dollar on barilla pasta from the supermarket and cooking it yourself at home as opposed to having them do it here for you....

    A Terrific Neighborhood Spot

    I've been coming here since it opened and have never been disappointed. Dined here the other night with friends from LA and they thought it was terrific too. Granted, it's not 5-star heaven - but neither are the prices in the clouds. The service is warm and friendly, there are tablcloths on the tables, (so often missing in other places lately) the wines are fairly priced and the selection is very good. The food is fresh and well prepared and the kitchen is happy to accomodate any changes to make you happy. The baked clams were excellent - whole clams, not the chopped/canned type, and the pasta with shrimp and vegatables was perfectly cooked. My friend's steak was tender and cooked to her liking and the other friend had the fish of the day which was superb. I love the bread basket filled with both italian bread and foccacia, served with a bottle of olive oil on the table. This is a great place if your expectations are for a terrific little neighborhood spot. They do have live music one night a week, which we personally don't like, so check with them if you have a preference.

    Lunch

    We had lunch at Notaro, and were the only ones in the room, so not much of atmosphere. But the food was great and reasonably priced for the quality. Service was good, I would not expect otherwise as were the only ones for lunch. I will probably try to come back one day for diner, to feel the atmosphere. Certainly the food deserves a second round.
