Our group of 16 was celebrating our annual family winter dining and matinee theater day in the City. We choose Maria Pia because it was close to the Gershwin theatre. Some of the reviews made us a bit nervous, but our experience was fine!

I went there with my parents on a Saturday night. they were very stingy about the bread, and the service was a bit disorganised.
Most of all, it was really noisy, and they still decided to put some music to make the situation worse. My

Maria Pia is a decent restaurant but nothing worth remembering. The service is accommodating, even on busy nights, but the restaurant is still always crowded and noisy. The food was pretty affordable, however, with the lunch special at about $13 which includes soup/salad, entree and desert

This was my second visit to this place and definitely the last one. Everything that could go wrong eventually did.

My friend and I were seated in the ?garden? area ? basically an expansion room with no roof. It looked nice enough. We had a "waitress-in-training" who disappeared halfway through our dinner. She re-appeared by the end of the dinner saying she was needed at the bar. Funny thing, considering she was struggling with opening our bottle of wine.

Our food turned out to be OK, except they brought strange things, for example: the pepper-crusted tuna did not have any pepper or crust and looked very much like lox. The salad was missing a few ingredients listed in the menu such as avocado. They only provided the root end of the asparagus (the spear head was missing). I guess the chef kept the tops to himself or considers them inedible.

The main dish was OK. The fun started after we ordered desert. Apparently we were not the only clients waiting... There was a rodent sitting under a nearby table. Apparently, he was not very shy as we managed to snap a few photos. Informing the wait stuff of our neighbor only brought a few shrugs, I guess it is commonplace at this establishment.

The second waiter tried to add a 20% tip to our bill, which incited another argument. It ended with the

headwaiter chasing after us and offering us free limoncello for our ?troubles??

I will never be a patron of this restaurant again; the poor service, unprofessional attitude, and shear uncleanliness of the establishment have completely disgusted me.

So we tryed it when we arrived I had previously had made reservations 6 days prior for 6 O'clock . "YOU MUST MAKE RESERVATIONS BECAUSE IT IS A SMALL RESTURANTS WITH ALOT OF WALK IN'S " When we walked in the staff was very polite and asked us if we had reservations and said it would be a few minutes it was only around a 15 minute wait which was'nt bad . we sat at the bar which was cozy it was a great little resturant very clean I felt like we were in Italy!!!!!!!!!!! The staff servers were great polite asked if we had our dinner vouchers and handed us a prefixed menu , which had alot to offer as far as selection we brought our to kids with us ages 7 and 12 and them being so picky eaters they managed to find foods that they really like also . The waiter polite and always checking to see if everything was O.K. "WITH THIS FOOD VOUCHER ALL THE TAXES AND GRATUTIES WERE INCLUDED' but since we had such great service we felt we should take care of the waiter. LET ME ALSO MENTION NOT ONCE DID THEY TRY TO PUSH SOMETHING OFF THE WAS ON THE REGULAR MENU OR ANY TYPE OF LIQUIR. Will definetly go back to dine at maria pria .

Visited Maria Pia with my family last Friday. In a word...RUDE. Maybe because we didn't make reservations we weren't welcome, but we had to wait at the bar for a table, which is no problem, but we felt like we were in the way and weren't offered drinks while we waited. We were seated and the food was good but not great. The place seemed very touristy which is not really my thing. We had a table too close to the kitchen and bathroom traffic, but what do you expect in New York, small restaurant, we took what we could get. Manager never visited our table but seemed interested in other patrons and their enjoyment. Won't be back.

The garden is pretty; the house red wine is very good.
But ... the food is bad; really bad. The veal scallopini in lemon sauce was covered with some flavorless water and flour mixture, lumps included. The Italian cheesecake was the worst I've ever had. It was this lump (literally) of something, covered with a horrid neon orange sauce. The consistency was like a bread pudding that someone shaped into a meatball and then added a little flour and water to make the thing stick together.
We were there on a Monday night when the Theater District is dark and perhaps the better chefs had the evening off. But there is no excuse for what I ate.

I was very sceptic to try Maria Pia after I read some bad reviews about, but I tried it. I think that from the moment that we sat to the momrnt that we left was never a dull moment. We sat by the window which gave us a better view of the street.The waiter came by told us the fiew specials and said that if we wanted something else to be free to ask (our chef makes everything) he said. We ordered as he recommended. We started with a apple salad and cured meat abbondanza, thaqt shared a pasta made with mushroom and than for main course we had the calf's liver,the steak and the rissoto.The evening went exellent and what made so good was the waiter that used to pull jokes which made it memorable. I think our waiter was albanian but his italian was perfect and in our table we had also other waiter that came and said hello.
The staff is charming including the bold headed waiter that had a lot fine jokes.From food to service I rate this restaurant to be a STAR IN THE THEATER DISTRICT.Great food nedds great peaple to back it up and Maria Pia has it.You feel like you are in Sicily with the charm of everybody there including the manager that i think was albanian but gives the people the impresion of an italian matre'd.Great place guys every time i will come in Manhattan I will visit this jewel.

Currently on a fresh pasta binge I sought a Midtown restaurant and came across Pia Maria online. I met a friend there and found the place pleasant and average. The food was alright but nothing extraordinary, I had the lobster ravioli which contained chunky pieces of meat and a tomatoey sauce. My friend had the fish special with spinach - she said the fish was bland but enjoyed the veggies. If you need somewhere Midtown this place is okay, and, not particulary overpriced. Generous portions, good service, average food.

I ate at this cozy and mouthwatering italian restaurant twice this week and it was exceptional on foo and service.if you need to eat something before or after theater don't hesitate to go to this great italian fare. It is good for anytime of the day with a pretty gorgious menu and great service.tyr ther mussels and clam stew or their antipasto mix (dry meat and cheeses) and don't forget the Polpo. For your main course try Rissoto Pescatore or the calfs liver with balsamic reduction. If you like italian you will love their pasta from the lobster ravioli to their pappardelle with mushroom and truffle oil. Dessert ; indulge in their chocolate torte or their panna cotta. When it comes to their wine list its small and stuff is missing but the waiter Tony promised me that the wine list will get bigger. If you need recomendation on wine don't hesitate to ask and the same thing goes for food, plus the can make anything you want. I had a wondrful experience. Thank you Tony for the wine recomendation and thank you Alban for the hospitality.
I recomend that you go and try the experience on italian food and great service. You will thank me for the recomendation.

Maria Pia is conveniently located practically next door to my favorite musical, Wicked. Naturally, I have eaten there twice...Good and inexpensive Italian cuisine. It's a no-brainer for NYC! It offers an extensive wine list (no Reisling for boyfriend, though). Yummy goat cheese ravioli, breads for the table, and tasty delights for after the meal.

Bit delayed writing this review but we celebrated our wedding here back in the summer. It was a Monday so we were able to reserve a large table at the back of the restaurant and so not disturb the other diners. The staff were very relaxed and permitted guests to drink around the bar longer than they could have.

When finally seated we enjoyed some good reasonably priced (for New York) wines and some great food. Of the 25 of us, almost all enjoyed all three courses and the the only slight dissatisfaction was due to a mix up which wasn't reported by one of the guests.

The staff continued to be good humoured and attentive as the night progressed and (perhaps again because it was a Monday) we were seated for long after the desserts had been taken away. All in all a very enjoyable experience and thanks to Emir for the good humour and professionalism of his staff.

Nice Restaurant. Staff was pleasant. We made a reservation for 10 and they were very nice to add an 11th chair when we brought an extra person. Everyone enjoyed their food. A couple of picky teenagers with us and they were very happy. Portions are big - I recommend splitting which apparently they do. I wish we knew because a lot of food went to waste. I hate that! I had the lobster ravioli. It was just okay. Salad was very fresh and tasty. Overall a nice restaurant.

Maria Pia's food is delicious! The cavetelli bolognese was amazing. The pasta was perfectly cooked and the meat sauce was rich and favorful. The food tastes just like my what my Mom and Grandma used to make - earthy and authentic Italian. We were served promptly and the wait staff was very nice. I highly recommend this little jem of a resturant.

Dined here on Saturday 1/28/06 before the Theater. Reservations were for 6:30 and we arrived 15 minutes early. We were seated immediately, even though the place was packed. There is a 3 course Prix Fixe menu for $21.95 or you can order off the regular menu. Food was great, service was prompt. Seating is a little cramped, but that is the norm for a restaurant of this type in the Theater District.

We had a reservation for two but were told to wait at the bar. We each ordered a glass of wine, paid for them and waited 15 minutes to be seated. Once seated, we waited another 20 minutes in the busy restaurant without a server acknowledging our presence. We figured that although the menu looked good, it wasn't worth fighting to eat there. As we left without getting to order, we told the hostess what had happened, and all she could manage was an unapologetic "sorry."

...I love Maria Pia's food, really Italian...really yummy! Unfortunately, the service is not at the same level of the food:-/ Last time I was there the bathrooms were not working, and my chair was broken. I complained to the manager, (his name is Mary...weird) and he didn't care AT ALL, and gave me a cold and rude answer...and it was not the first time dear Mary!!!
The wait stuff is attentive though, the bartender was really nice and competent (her name is Jo...jaja a little gender confusion here) and the Maitre D' was a real HOT Italian model :-O

Overall: WORTH TO TRY!

When I was looking for this restaurant, I was distraught by the appearance of the street. But the moment I step down the stairs to Maria Pia, I forgot the ungliness of the street and was transformed to a delightful place. My friends and I were lucky enough to snatch the only four tops out in the little patio space. The food was absolutely YUMMY. The price was so cheap for the quality and quanity. Definately try the crab cake and Calamari Fritti for appetizer and the Shrimp and Scallop for Entree.

We sat down and immediately reached for the candles just to see each other the table was so dark. Now I know dark is romantic, but this was rediculous. My seat was directly under the heat and it was about 150 degrees. I asked the waiter if they could turn the heat down a bit. He said they couldn't, but we could switch tables. He brought us to the table right next to the kitchen, despite many other open tables. He could tell he didn't want to hear the cooks conversations, so he sat us next to the basement stairs, and luckily I was on the outside so I was the only one that had to smell the odor from downstairs (those of you that have worked in a restaraunt know what I mean). But, overall, the food was good, the prices great, just need to work on the service.

We were going to go a few doors down to Vice Versa but got turned off by the crowd and how crowded it looked. We were in the mood for something more quiet and low key and went to Maria Pia. The menu sounds average, like you can find these dishes anywhere. The quality of them were good and satisfactory. Nothing crazy inventive or seductive. If you want something that's satisfying, good, and want to be able to relax and concentrate on your company and talk, this is a good place.

this is a great little place if you live in the area and just want to sit and relax and not spend too much. if its nice out - sit outside - they do a good job at blocking out the street. the food is good - nothing crazy but i enjoyed everything i had - long menu too - lots of options. service is really good but understanding the foreign waitstaff can be hard - i think it adds to the feel of the place though. they dont rush you at all which is also nice - its casual and quiet so you can actually have a conversation here. i had a very nice time here and im sure i will return since im new to the neighborhood.

We went to this restaurant having found it in a Hotel guide offering a free bottle of wine if you dined there - and it was actually decent (Value $28).

The food was good, promptly served and hot, with portions sizes good.

Staff were pleasant although sometime difficult to understand!!!!

The chocolate desert cake is well worth a try.

The food was immaculate, at a reasonable price. Atmosphere was comfortable, with enough peace for conversation. The portions were just right, and if you're a small eater, you might even be able to doggie bag some of it home. The wine list is slightly pricey though. But overall, I would definitely be back there again...

What a treat to have a reasonably priced restaurant in the theater district that serves superb food in wonderful surroundings. The service was fast and attentive and one could race to a performance or relax over a long meal (I've done both!) The atmosphere is cheery and cosy and great music just adds to cordiality. My only worry about writing this review is that it may make the place so popular that I can't get a reservation...

Wow I was really pleasantly surpriced by this gem.
It's what a trattoria is supposed to be.No attitude,
no pretense,just real honest food at very affordable prices.To make it even better Maria Pia
the owner/hostess makes everthing shine with her beauty & graciousness.Thanks

The menu was extensive, the food was tastefully prepared and fresh ........and served promptly with a smile..........something you don't get in Manhattan very often. Location for the theater district was perfect and our dessert ( An Italian version of Apple Pie with blueberries & strawberries with vanilla ice cream) was outrageous. What made all of this so special was with wine, appetizers, dinner and dessert for two, and tip, our cost was $60. Being a super-critical New Yorker (is there any other kind?) this is a good choice for good food, good service at excellent prices for a relaxing meal before a show....or any time. Only complaint was that they started the Frank Sinatra and Tony Bennet music as we were leaving........or maybe we
didn't hear while we were eating. GC & DC

Only complaint was that they started the Frank Sinatra and Tony Bennet music as we were leaving........or maybe we
didn't hear while we were eating. GC & DC
