Visited on Saturday night, and had a reservation. The restaurant was very busy and we waited 45 minutes for our food, but once we got it it was very good. We both had the MISCUGLIO, dish which had three large shrimp, bay scallops, and spinach. Last time we got this dish in January, it had the large sea scallops. We... More

Went with group to celebrate birthday. Service was timely and attentive. Quality of food was slightly uneven. The salmon dish was subpar for Pat's standards (taste and texture were lacking) while the chicken and pasta dishes were excellent. Wasn't a fan of a $2 per slice "cutting fee" for bringing own B-day cake.( we chose to have at home without... More

It was cooked perfectly,medium rare with side of pasta , also excellent. Eggplant was also spot on. There is a good size bar also. Wine list is quite... More

The bar is set... real deal homecooked goodness from the heart. This operation has set the quintessential bar for years and although at times underestimated, pats continues to consistently shine. Tastes the same as it did years ago and I feel like the only thing that changes is the year...portion and value are not overlooked. Well done, keep it up!

I have been eating here since Tony sold it to the current owners, 8 years? There is no better tomato sauce in the state in my opinion, it has become the bench mark for all other itailan resteraunts. Everytime I go here I get the chicken parm with the chicken soup before. The chicken soup is incredible. The chicken parm... More

I've been a regular at Pat's for years and much to my disappointment my visit this past Saturday 10/15 was awful. Food and service was top notch as always but the party at the table next to ours was out of control! I invited my best friends for dinner and we could not even hear each other speak. Not only...

Love the Veal Parmesan ...always enough left to take home for another meal. Yum! Last visit was disappointing. Sat in the open both near entrance and was very uncomfortable. Prefer new dining area behind bar. Next time will definitely request that room. Service is always good and fast.

The chicken and veal sorrento is delicious and the homemade radiatore pasta is excellent. Portions are big and servers and hostess super friendly. Only thing that keeps them from a 5 star is they give individual butter packets with the bread....how about some olive oil cheese and herbs to really kick it up? Pumpkin cheesecake was delicious!
