After reading all of the negative reviews about the service I was surprised. The service was more than adequate, even though it was busy, and the food came out quickly. My cousin and I shared the caesar salad, which was solid. Good combination of creamy dressing and salad, not like other caesar salads that are tasteless or have too much dressing. Pizza was also very good (though obviously not as good as John's Pizzeria of Bleeker St., which is the best), fresh ingredients and made in their brick oven. Pretty decent selection of beer, as well, but no mixed drinks. But definitely worth it.

My wife and I have eaten here more times than I can count over the 35 years we've been in the neighborhood. The food has been consistently good, many times, even "great." However the whole experience is marred by mixed service. At times it is fine. Pleasant, comfortable, etc. Other times it is much less pleasant than it should be. I've found that the only thing that works then is speaking up - asserting yourself - as pleasantly as possible. Now that ticks me off. It causes stress and makes my stomach upset and is completely unnecessary. FORTUNATELY, this is RARE. But it is one of those restaurants where the staff can be moody. BOTTOM LINE: I would not hesitate to send visitors to this Patsy's. Come in hungry, and if you arrive at a peak time, expect to wait. Settle yourself in with a glass of wine and a paper or something. Enjoy the bread and oil... relax.

This is the closest you will get to a real Italian style pizza... I have family in Italy (so I visit often) and it is really hard to come back to NY and go to pizza places or Italian restaurants that serve mediocre Italian food. Another good pizza place is Sal and Carmine on Broadway at 102nd street. Their pizza is more NY style, but the pizza reminds me of a pizza place that I go every time I stay in Florence, Italy.

Big call I know...but this pizza is incredible. Not bad service and decent atmosphere for a low key feed ... but this is all about the pizza! If only they had ham and pineapple....

Hadn't been to patsy's for about 4 years. well, the food is good as usual. service like a diner. food is served faster than a bbq. bing bang boom. and the bill is a little less than a real restaurant. I don't get the appeal

I am a neighbor who thinks the food is good at this Patsy's as well as many of the others scattered throughout the city. I am, a times, disappointed with the service but my last experience in this place was very upsetting, especially b/c I actually like the food. Now I feel like I can' t return just in principle. I walked in before closing when there were two parties who had just received their food, one was a large party of 8+ people. I asked for a table and said, "Are you still open?" One of the waitresses quickly came over to seat me. Before I reached the table , she told me the kitchen was closing and asked what i wanted to drink. She seemed annoyed. I gave her my drink order and she quickly delivered it and took my order. When I asked her for bread and olive oil, she glared at me as if I had asked her to work until 1AM that night. My meal was quickly delivered and, as usual , it tasted great. Soon after I got my food and well before closing, the manager then asked the staff to begin lifting the chairs and place them on the table. I was forcing food down my throat so quickly b/c I felt so pressured. If they want to be out of there at 11pm, they should close at 10pm.

My husband and I have returned here several times on those nights where we want casual atmosphere, good food for a good price. We love to split the pizza and a pasta. We definately recommend.
