Patsy's Italian Restaurant
Posted by Jeff & Kathy on 03/12/2006
Both my wife were pleasantly surprised and happy with entire experience. We ordered an appetizer, soup, salad and entree. We took home a "doggie bag" as we were too full for dessert. Food quality and service were very good. We had a reservation for 5pm on a Saturday, and the place was getting full at that time! If hundreds of celebrities go to Paty's, why not you! Disregard the review before ours, that couple must have been a tight budget.

I went to Patsys on a date about a month ago. It was his "favorite" restaurant...The Veal was tender but there wasnt much of it and it was served with a tiny tiny potato croquette. I didnt find it to be anything special or particularly flavorful. I actually left hungry. Won't be seeing this guy or the restaurant again!

I've eaten at this resturant three times last year. I love the food, I loved the atmosphere, I loved Sal, I really didn't think the prices were to bad and that might have been because everything else was just great. I felt like I was in an old time movie probably because Frank Sintra used to like the place. I loved it so much. I really don't want to try any other resturant in NY when I'm in town but here.

I think that this restaurant is a great place to go and be. The service is amazing and the atmosphere is great. This Italian restaurant is perfect to go to.

This place is like a lot of land mark midtown snob stops - over rated! We were a party of three, and we had three different pasta dishes.... They were all bland, nothing to write home about. How this place became famous is beyond me. The atmosphere is stuffy old guard.

Patsy's is a must! The service is fantastic - they treat you like royalty while making you feel like family! Sal is a complete charmer and so is the rest of the family! Regis Philbin and Tony Danza frequented the place just two nights ago - don't tell anyone though. Enjoy!

I have frequented many NYC restaurants and many more expensive than Patsy's, so perhaps some of my fellow reviewers are not so accustomed to what I consider "reasonable" prices. Yes, the dishes can range anywhere from the high teens to $34 ($32 for the day's fabulous special - a rack of lamb), but considering that many NY restaurants, including Italian restaurants don't service dishes under $25 and that I have had numerous dishes at well over $40, I can hardly say that Patsy's is overly expensive. Now to the actual dining. Last Friday was my younger sister's birthday and so I purchased tickets to see Rent and made reservations for 4 (sister, mother, girlfriend and myself) at Patsys for a pre-theater dinner. My mother ordered the veal rollatine marsala which was excellent. We all tasted and agreed. I had the special of the day, which was a rack of lamb - fabulous, I believe my sister had the Chicken Marsala, which she said was excellent and my girlfirend had the Chicken Parm, which she said was very good (despite the previous reviewers remarks of this dish). The service was excellent. I ordered Clams Arreganata and 2 orders of the Freshly Roasted Peppers and Mozzarella for the table. The server brought it out in separate plates for each, pre-portioned, which I though was great service and initiative. Our wine was poured frequently by the server and water was refilled on a consistent basis. Our server ensured that everything was just right. In any event this dinner for 4, with three of us also getting dessert/coffee, was suprisingly inexpensive at $250 (including tax, excluding tip). Before going, I was anticipating spending approximately $400 as this was actually a highly recommended (through word of mouth) restaurant. Although my girlfriend and I dine like this regularly, this was an entirely new experience for both my mother and my sister, who both absolutely loved the night. Overall, this restaurant was extremely pleasing and I would definitely return, theater or not!
