I have always wanted to try spaghetti with meatballs. I tried to make it several times, but it always ends up as a big inseparable mess. A friend told me about Patrizia’s and also took me there. There was a priceless smile on my face just after the first spoon of Patrizia’s spaghetti with meatballs in my mouth because, well, immediately I knew this was the real deal. Since that day, shamefully, I have gone there several times for the same thing.
Last weekend I had dinner with 20 of my employees to mark our tenth year anniversary as a team at Patrizia’s restaurant in Staten Island. I was impressed by the quality of their Italian food, and so were my employees. I ate “Insalata Di Pulpo,” and I enjoyed the meal. Special thanks to John our waiter and great thanks to Jacomo the owner for the excellent service. I will visit again
Patrizia's of Staten Island is warm, cozy and inviting with food that tasted homemade (in a very good way). My husband and I visited Patrizia's a couple weeks ago, around 6 p.m. on a Thursday. We were seated quickly in a comfortable corner booth.
I hosted a mini dinner with twenty-five people to celebrate my 25th birthday at Patrizia’s restaurant in Staten Island owned by Jacomo. Emanuele who was our waiter was superb. Excellent service, delicious Italian food and great atmosphere, thanks Jacomo!
I’m not big on reviewing places. I feel that one bad experience is not indicative of a place or its reputation. However I have to say that the experience that I had at this “Aunt Butchies” was probably the most offensive and hurtful I’ve ever seen, and it had nothing to do with the food. I’m a realist. I also work in the restaurant/food service business for many, many years. My wife and cousin and I and our two young children decided to stop by Aunt Butchies for some pastries. Once inside while waiting for our order we sat with the kids and had coffee and ordered some desert for the kids. While laughing and having a good time my wife noticed the younger “woman”/hostess or whatever she is start to dart around like a 5 year old with a smirk on her face whispering(but not REALLY whispering) to everyone she could get her hands on. My wife picked up on her annoying and obnoxious behavior and within seconds was able to make out that she was making fun ,pretty openly, of my wife and cousin for ordering desert at 1230 in the afternoon. Then continued to make remarks about their weight. Apparently this was “too early” to have desert and she continued to make fun of us. Now my wife and cousin aren’t the thinnest people in the planet. Needless to say my cousin left in tears. Not wanting to cause a scene in-front of the kids we left! Before we did I approached the owner and he played dumb and refused to acknowledge this “girls” disgusting behavior. All of a sudden his broken English got a lot worse. Look, like I said I’m a realest. I get people make comments about other people. I encourage anyone to think real hard before giving this place ANY business. Especially in this day and age. To be “shamed” and embarrassed like this was sad and hurtful. I will never set foot in this dump again. I realize it’s the new “Staten Island” hot spot but beware if you are packing a few extra pounds be careful what you order and be ready to be ridiculed and embarrassed.
I had my wedding reception at Patrizia's and everything was absolutely wonderful. I was happy because their staff accommodated all of my wants and took care of it all without a hitch, my guests were happy because there was a huge variety of authentic, delicious Italian food. They still haven't stopped raving about the eggplant parmigiana!
Whenever we want Italian food, Patrizia's is me and my girlfriend's go-to. We always ask for Luis to serve us and have never been let down, he is always conscientious and professional! By the way, you have to try the skirt steak with broccoli rabe, it's perfect, you wouldn't believe skirt steak can be so tender!
It is a comfortable Italian feeling restaurant. They serve delicious pizza on the thin cake layer baked on wood in the oven. And it's outstanding. You will definitely like to come back and taste it once again.
Wanted to take my family out to eat on Friday night. Took them to Cafe Milano the owner saw that I had kids and wouldn't sit us in the restaurant. Told us everything was reserved. Then told us his tables were for 4 people and we have 5. Lost my business. Never go there again. Bad businessman.
