We enjoyed the spinach/artichoke dip appetizer and also ordered the pizza, which we thought was just OK. We saw others with pasta and it looked delicious. The interior is nice, and has a great porch for dining. Medium priced restaurant.

The food was average at best, and seriously overpriced (I know, it's the upper west side). I'm not giving it a poor rating because the food isn't bad, rather it's just very mediocre. Don't waste your time and money here. There's much better Italian food...More

I give it a poor rating because they're just phoning it in because they think the Gaga name is all they need. The food was average tasting, with not enough seasoning and over-cooked pasta. I mean seriously, an Italian restaurant, of all places, should know...More

I ate dinner here recently and it was underwhelming. I was looking for something pre Lincoln Theater and thought why not. Food was average. I was looking forward to a real home cooked Italian meal since this is supposed to be Lady Gaga's family restaurant....More

Wines: the house red at $10/glass is a good choice. The malbec at $14-not so much. The mac and cheese w/seafood, just forget this mushy mess. The spaghetti and meat ball- well now, the meat ball could have come from Cosco but it was too...More

When entering the restaurant, the greeter welcomed us very kindly. We were seated immediately in a room, that felt like I was in a garden in Tuscany. I ordered the eggplant, and my friend ordered the Alfredo . We each had a glass of wine....More

I love Joanne's! It's always my first option of Italian food in the city. The service is great and the food is delicious. Especially the Seafood Mac & Cheese. I always recommend this restaurant, it never disappoints me!

downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the
city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the
American Museum of Natural History, which has been
welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for
over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center,
