The menu is a collection of nostalgic old-Italian favorites done to perfection. There are prix-fixe menu’s (Lunch $39, dinner $65) and ala carte menu which offer signature dishes, such as Veal Chops Siciliano, spicy Lobster Fra Diavolo, tender Chicken Contadina, calamari stuffed with seafood and Shrimp Scampi. Dishes are cooked to order, so if you are gluten free or have allergies your needs are taken care of.
My guest the producer Pat Addiss and I decided to share dishes, so all the pictures you will see are half portions. We started off with pasta and I choose Bucatini all’Amatriciana ($27) A classic red sauce with hickory-smoked bacon, prosciutto, onions, and fresh basil. The pasta was fresh and the sauce savory and excellent and was the perfect starter.
Next up was Eggplant Parmigiana ($25) Eggplant baked with Parmigiano-Reggiano, mozzarella, and tomato basil sauce. Now this dish is one of Pat’s and my favorites and this version was so delicate it almost tasted like a soufflé. Total perfection.
The Veal Francese ($35) Egg-battered and sautéed with prosciutto, butter, lemon, and white wine, is mind blowing. The sauce is so savory and perfectly light that it is addicting. Served with a potato croquet and fresh green beans this was our favorite dish and will have us coming back.
The desert tray ($13) was totally tempting and if you love desert you can not pass this up. We ordered the Canolli Cake and the Napoleon, along with a cappuccino.
If you are looking for the next place to make your visit to Broadway or Carnegie Hall a fabulous experience, celebrate being alive or a place to host your awards (Tony) Party, look no future than Patsy’s Italian Restaurant.
