When I lived in NYC, just a block away, Lasagna was a regular go-to. On a visit five years after I was last there, the place was as good as I remembered. The calamari was nice and crispy, the veal very tender. And still great prices for bottles of wine. Friendly, efficient staff -- many who I remember from year's... More

Our hotel recommended this as a local Italian restaurant as one in our part wanted Italian food. The menu provide great options for us on a Lenten Friday as well as the carnivores in the party. The garlic bread was crispy and rich with olive oil. The lasagna with scallops and shrimps, the mushroom ravioli and the lasagna with marinara... More

Guess what this place is known for? Yep. Lasagna! Good size portions. Everything comes with garlic bread. My wife had the Fussili with chicken.

Went to lasagne in Midtown. I can tell you it way overpriced for the quality of food. We ate the lasagna and it was no better than you can make at home or get at any good Italian place. I understand NYC prices are high, but you can find better Italian food at a number of establishments. Try Becco or... More

I just ate dinner here and ordered chicken franchaise, the meat was not cooked and raw I'm literally walking home wondering if I'm going to puke. Disgusting

Lasagna has a nice varied Italian menu. The Fisulli Melazane was very good - the right portion of pasta to vegetables. I would recommend coming here for a moderately priced Italian meal. I did not try the namesake, but someone in my group did and enjoyed the lasagna too.

Holy moly! I've been coming to this place for brunch since 2009 and I can confidently tell you it's the best! I almost don't want to give it a review because I don't want it to get too popular. However - I can't be greedy! Best things on the menu - the penne all a vodka and the pancakes. I've... More

We discovered this pleasant little restaurant by walking the neighborhood. The menu looked good so we decided to try. They were not extremely busy so it was nice and quiet. It was an all around good experience.

We eat here twice during our stay in New our, it was close to our apartment. We found the service good and friendly. The food was well cooked and presented and generous portion sizes. Would return to this restaurant if we come back to New York.

We are frequent out-of-towners and have come to love Lasagna. We usually try to grab an outdoor table or one of the high-tops. It's a great people watching spot. It's not a huge place, but the food and service is great. My favs are the eggplant rollatini and cheese lasagna. The food is a bit old school italian, but very... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
