    A friend and I made a dinner reservation and stumbled upon NYC restaurant week! They had a nice menu and we each ordered a few different items. We also decided to splurge and get a bottle of red which was wonderful. The food overall was just okay - nothing spectacular and more just average. The service was wonderful though and we still enjoyed our dinner catch up. This is definitely a good place to get items for home cooking, but the restaurants feel more touristy than anything else.

    Thought this might be a decent place since the supermarket it is located in is fantastic. We got off to a bad start when the initial waitstaff (a tallish woman) decided to correct my pronunciation of an appetizer. Didn't think anything of it at first, but then I thought of all the restaurants my wife have eaten at through the years in Italy (Rome, Palermo, Mondello, Naples) and never once was corrected (and I'm sure we flubbed some dishes we ordered). We are of Italian heritage, but not fluent in Italian. The arrogance really began to grate on me because when the food arrived after an extended wait it was nothing to write home about. To make maters worse the service was nonexistent. After the initial seating we had different wait staff and he was elusive. Took the main course order and was never to be seen again. If the place was crowded I could understand, however, we were one of four tables. Arancini as an appetizer...mediocre. Main courses the same. The Tagliatelle alla Bolognese was decent, but not $29 decent. Expected much better. The pizza, Burrata e Pomodoro, to say I've had better would be an understatement. Local corner Pizzerias in Brooklyn put it to shame. Will continue to go to the market, but will never set foot in the restaurant again. Such a letdown.

    We ate here for the first time yesterday and I was very impressed. The food is fresh, tasty, and authentic. Prices are decent for the quality of food that you are getting. Serving size is good too. I had the pasta carbonara and it was very filling I ended up taking half of it home. Portions are not huge but more than adequate. The one thing I will make note of especially if you have young kids is that the menu is not American friendly. Soda is from Italy and yes it does taste just like Coca-Cola but it may throw some of your kids off. Also, no chicken nuggets or anything like that. As long as your kids eat pasta and pizza you are good to go. I highly recommend this place food was amazing.

    Walking through the market to get to the restaurant is a feast for the eyes as all the fresh fruits, vegetables and cheeses are beautifully displayed. The restaurant itself was wonderful from too to bottom.... Greeted warmly, seated quickly, prompt service and great waiter. Now, the food.... WOW! Our 13 y/o daughter can be pretty picky, and even she was blown away. Our group had a pizza, fettuccine, and ravioli after starting with bread and some fried risotto balls. Everything was exquisite. We all shared and sampled and it was all simply fresh, and delicious. Well balanced, well seasoned, and presented beautifully. For dessert we shared a gelato and a tiramisu. Now I will say... I normally avoid tiramisu. I never had one I really enjoyed ..... Well, I have now. The tiramisu was phenomenal! Loved the food, and loved the experience.

    La Pizza & La Pasta at Eataly in the Flatiron district is a restaurant that has some great food but is brought down incredibly far by chaos and poor service. You have some amazing and flavorful Italian classics on the menu, but even basics like focaccia seem to be out every time we go. It’s chaos from the moment you try to check in at the host stand to getting you to your packed and crowded table and then good luck eventually getting your order taken and your food served. Things like drink refills are a dream - and this is during a weekday mid-afternoon when it should be slower. If you can go to the Downtown Eataly you will have a much better experience overall with the same great food.
