Patsy's Italian Restaurant
Posted by Anonymous on 01/30/2008
I have now eaten here 5 times in the last two months. Lunch and dinner. Something has to be crazy in the kitchen. Three times I ate there the food was fantastic, perfectly cooked. The two other times the food was barely passable. There must be two different chefs in this kitchen, and darn if I will go back with out being assured that the good one is in the house.

We were a party of 4 and each of us chose something different from the varied menu of Italian favorites. Service was very nice without being rushed. Good location -easy to get to after a broadway show. As for price -what in New York is inexpensive? Have been there before and will go again.

My brother kept bragging about how wonderful this place is, but I've undoubtedly had much better. There are some small Greenwich Village restaurants with hand made pasta that is way better for less than half the price. I started with a Caesar salad that was bland and the mushy. My second course was gnocchi with meat sauce. The meat sauce had very little flavor, and the gnocchi itself seemed undercooked, a little hard, and had absolutely no flavor. I kept adding salt and pepper, but it was still quite bland. I've had some amazing gnocchi including a visit to Italy, and it's never been so hard. As for the atmosphere, it's kind of an "old school new york" type joint. Really kind of fun, and it's full of impatient and surly Italian waiters. Oh, and it was very over priced.

Piles of garlic and sauce doesn't equal good italian. The Caesar salad looked and tasted like they got it from a bag. Waiters serve but offer nothing special, Veal Piccata was coated in canned lemon sauce.

My mother took me to Patsy's for my 21st birthday last night and everything was delicious. To start we ordered the stuffed asparagus special and the fried zucchini. My mother had the rigatoni siciliano and I had the pork chops with vinegar peppers and a side order of zitti. The food was perfectly cooked and tender and very delicious. We had coffee and dessert and the staff was very nice. One of the chefs (I believe he was) actually came out and took our order and he was very sweet. Jackie Mason was even sitting at the table behind us! This restaurant is NOT a tourist trap like some reviews have mentioned ... it is expensive but we went there knowing we were going to go out to a nice restaurant for my birthday and spend some money.... The portions of food were well worth the price. I would definitely go again!

No matter what time of day or what day of the week a meal at Patsy's is like going to Grandma's for Sunday dinner at 1pm in Queens. This is true Napolitano cooking, we have cousins who still live in Naples and we all visit back and forth and I can tell you Sal's food is as authentic as what is served under an awning of grapes in one of my cousins back yards in Italy! Forget typical Italian-American fare like ravioli and chicken parm, go for the authentic: Pork Chops with Vinegar Peppers, Stewed Tripe, Chicken Contidina, Rabe... THIS is how Grandma cooked. ( for those who are not lucky enough to be Italian, in Italy pasta is served before the chicken parm, not with it). Autentico.
