It was still early, and the restaurant was not very crowded, but we struggled a bit to get our server's attention for the wine order. After that, appetizers, with no problem. Then we ordered the main course. After 25-30 minutes of waiting, the server appeared to politely ask if we wanted to see a dessert menu!. (We'd not yet been served our entrees.) About 15 minutes later we were served, with no apology or explanation. Then, a 15-20-minute wait for dessert. We finally decided to pay the check. Dessert arrived as my husband was signing the credit card bill. We won't be back.

Pros: branzino was good - I think

Cons: Horrible service, no apologies

.

We were very surprised when dinner took over 25 minutes and they started to clear the table of silverware, bread, water, etc., before the main course arrived. Dessert took over 15 minutes (biscotti) and we were paying the check when it showed up (we sent it back). No apologies, no explanation, truly negative experience.

Pros: tasty tuna, bronzini, spaghetti and meatballs

I adore the lounge, with its warm cozy and friendly atmosphere; Paula the bartender is the absolute best -- her martinis are killer. And the food...mmm.. my friends and I LOVE the meatballs and the Mezzemaniche sausage pasta. A real Chelsea gem.

Pros: Wonderful food

Consistently great food - both dine in and delivery. I've tried nearly half the menu at this point and have dined in total probably 20 times at this place. The fish and pasta are always fresh and well prepared (the penne and sea bass are my faves).

Somebody else mentioned this was a very New York dining experience - and i couldn't agree more (including the shaking water glasses when the subway train goes by underneath). :)

A true neighborhood gem.

Not happy about this place. The food was below average and the service was only ok. The management should put more emphasis on customers' satisfaction.

We love Le Zie. It's noisy, the tables are right on top of each other, the service is just ok, but the food, the food is wonderful. Their regular menu is very good. The pastas have an authentic Italian feel to them with great ingredients and simple style. Ditto everything else on their regular menu. The real strength of the chef comes out however, in the fine offering of inventive specials which are worth hearing about from the wait staff who will recite them dutifully.I remember a grilled sardine appetizer my wife and I shared there recently that was just wonderful,fresh and perfectly cooked. From the bread they serve with olive oil when you sit to their very nice dessert offerings Le Zie is a place where you can take an Italian and be confident they will appreciate the experience.

For Italians, Le Zie is a home away from home. For none Italians who like to romance and flirt with Italian food, it's a small haven in the heart of Chelsea, in New York City's Manhattan. This treasure is warm and inviting. The menu is decorated with a display of Venetian recipes that you will talk about for days, and the wine list offers a selection of colorful wines that will satisfy everyone?s palate and most of all it is truly a very affordable place to lunch or dine with your loved one or some friends. If you?re lucky, owner Claudio Bonotto will sit by your table and indulge you with his knowledge and experience in Venetian Cuisine. Le Zie gets TWO THUMBS?. WAAAY UP!

Le Zie is a reliable local spot. I have been going there for years and the pasta is consistently delicious. They have expanded lately getting a little more crowded. But it is still a local favorite.

Went with some friends one night to sit outside and enjoy some italian food. I got some pasta, and halfway though a long blonde hair was pulled out of the middle of my food with my fork. Nasty.

I complained to the manager, and he apologized and of course did not charge for the meal. Don't think I'll ever be able to eat there again.

Le Zie is a great Chelsea spot for quality Italian food. The menu is pretty diverse ranging from their standard spaghetti and meatballs (which are excellent) to various fish and meat based dishes. They have a very extensive wine list and there are several excellent Italian wines available for $40 and under. The service has generally been good, although it can get a little crowded in the main dining room. Upstairs can feel a little desolate but better than waiting for a table in the main room.

On rainy night in NYC, this neighborhood restaurant was a haven. The warm welcome we received and the cozy seating started the evening off. The service started off very leisurely. When we mentioned that we had theatre tickets, the waiter made certain that our dishes were served promptly and courteously. The appetizers and main courses were very, very good. We would definitely go back there for another bit of Venice.

Pros: Food, Service , Prices

For their price range, I think they do a really good job of making the food look and taste fabulous. Their appetizers are the best part of the menu so my boyfriend and I always order 3 appetizers between the 2 of us. Interesting menu items everyone should try: steamed asparagus with egg and mushrooms (sooo yummy and healthy), tricolore salad, and pici.

Le Zie is one of those small neighbordhood restaurants with a nice selection of wine and food, reasonable prices, and a quiet and cozy ambience. The place seems like its always busy in both the front and back rooms. There is an upstairs, but I'm not sure what goes on upstairs? The Beet Salad was excellent! I tasted the Gnocchi, Veal lasagna, and the Mushroom rissotto, all of which I tasted splendid. However, the lasagna was a little meaty and the rissotto, a bit oily (but I am very critical). The service was ONLY fair! The waitstaff was slow and disinterested. Although I did not taste dessert, the menu includes the yummmy Italian standards! The experience overall was enjoyable, but I don't live in Chelsea and doubt I would make a special trip back.

We were very pleased with Le Zie - the prices were right and the food was good. I had the bass served with beans and fennel. He had a fish special which we couldn't quite make out the name of - and didn't really love or hate so I'd go with the standards. I'd heard the meatballs and spaghetti are great - they're definitely on my list for next time. And a next time there will be because this place is worth going back to.

Ignore the reviews which talk about "pre-fab" food -- if you go out to eat spaghetti and meatballs, you can get it here, but order intelligently, and you're in for a treat. Know something about Italian wine? you can get a great bottle for $25 or so. The Venetian appetizer platter alone was worth the total bill -- I've seen nothing like it in NYC -- so when the great pasta dishes came, my wife and I were elated. Making plans for our fourth visit here, this time with my 21-year-old son -- he'll love it too.

We don't understand the popularity of this noisy, unpleasant Chelsea restaurant. The pre-fab food was served almost immediately after we ordered it (some of it too hot, some of it too cold). It was badly prepared, tasted dreadful, and when we tried communicating our displeasure to our waiter, he shook his head and walked away. Terrible value... way overpriced. The bottle of wine was the only thing we enjoyed at this place. Dreadful experience... we won't be back!

The food was decent and well-priced but not worth having to deal with bad management. The busboy poored fish juice all over my jacket--so much that it was dripping off the bottom. The manager didn't want to reimburse me until I sent him the dry cleaning bill as proof. As if I enjoy walking around in a jacket that smells like fish! After I refused to do that, he suggested we get desserts on the house. I again refused because I wasn't planning on eating desert. Then I spent 10 minutes convincing him that he needed to take $10 off our bill to compensate for dry cleaning expenses. Talk about poor business skills! Any decent restaurant manager would have comped my meal without hesitation. So eat there at your own risk.

A quick wait for a tiny table where the service was A+. The caesar salad was capital. My crispy baked salmon arrived atop delicious sauteed spinach. Every bite was a treat. After dinner tea arrived in a mini French press the perfect finish to a satisfying meal on a chilly autumn evening.

We go here all the time. The food is delicious, the service is usually quite good, and the prices are downright fantastic for New York. Would I go here for a quiet, romantic first date? No. But as far as the place to go when we want to go out and have a great meal for not a lot of money, this is it.

A great find! The staff, without exception was upbeat, helpful and extradorinarily nice. The quality of the food is on par with the service. For the money, this is one of the best meals I've had in New York. The decor an atmospehere is laid back. The noise level was perfect -- nobody needed to raise his voice to be heard, but there was plenty of background conversation to imbue the place with liveliness.

Oh, don't forget the deserts. They give some of new york's best a run for their money.
