Hearty home cooking Lasagna that feels like your home with mom and made with lots of love! Comfortable relaxing space with friendly sincere service and nice selection of wines.
Delicious and great service – this place was great the service was fast and polite and the lasagna had an incredibly rich flavor. I am coming back here when I am back in midtown East.
Best Lasagna in the City – Best lasagna in the city, hands down.
TERRIBLE! – I went to Lasagna last Monday night (9/7/9) at around 7pm with 4 friends. None of us had ever been. None of us will ever go back.
We were seated and placed our order with our server, "Alfredo" (according to the receipt printout). 1 Mussels appetizer, 2 pasta entrees, 1 veal, 1 chicken, and 1 lasagna. After about 20 minutes, a food runner eventually brought bread over to the table. It looked delicious, but was only so-so. The bus-boys were pretty attentive in refilling our drinks.
After nearly an hour, the 2 pasta dishes and the chicken parm were brought to the table by a food runner (the waiter hadn't been back to the table since taking our order). Each dish was cold. Not luke warm, but cold. The veal and the lasagna came out shortly after in the hands of another food runner, both were also cold. Everything was sent back immediately.
At that point, the empty (for the past 20 minutes or so) bread basket was finally taken away from the table. The mussels appetizer never came.
Around 3 minutes later the waiter (remember him? Alfredo! Yea, we had forgotten, too!) returned with the food that was visibly hot (microwaved? whatever, at this point we were just hungry and ready to get out of there! chalk it up to a loss...oh well!). Alfredo then made the comment, "I don't know why it came out cold! Please enjoy and I'll take care of your coffee and desserts tonight." Alright, nice gesture...
The food was all mediocre, at best. The pasta portions looked pretty large, as did the lasagna. The veal looked terrible. The chicken parm didn't look bad. Certainly, no one raved. We were happy to be in the company of each other and that's about it!
A bus-boy took our plates, boxed our leftovers for us, and brought dessert menus. Upon his return with our leftovers he took our order for 3 desserts and 2 coffees. The desserts were good, but not spectacular. Alfredo was still nowhere to be found.
Our check came including the 2 coffees (the desserts showed up on the bill, but were comped) AND the mussels appetizer that we were never served! Well, clearly this was a mistake...shouldn't be a problem. We'll just ask another waiter to get Alfredo for us to correct our bill.
When Alfredo came by, I said to him, quite pleasantly, "You forgot to take off the mussels, and the coffees are on here, too" to which he replied, angrily, "Why shouldn't I charge for the coffee?" Stunned, I shook my head and started to respond that he had previously told us, quite clearly, that he would take care of our coffees AND desserts. But, whatever...I'll pay for the coffees. Really not that big of a deal! Then he orders me "Say PLEASE! Don't just tell me what to do!"
Wow, I don't know what happened to our quiet inattentive waiter, but I liked that guy a lot better! Meanwhile, he left with the check, presumably to correct it, but at this point anything was possible! My party all discussed how strange the whole dinner had been and we were happy to be leaving.
Then Alfredo returned. He walked directly over to me and leaned over to whisper into my ear. He even put the bill up over his mouth to shield his words from my other guests... Then the most absurd comment I've ever even heard about a waiter saying to a patron: "You're a d*ck; I'll treat you like sh*t!"
Wait, what?! Surely, I didn't hear that correctly...so I questioned him, "Did you...just call me a d*ck?" Well, indeed I had heard him correctly, Alfredo responded, loudly enough for the entire restaurant to hear, "YES! AND I TREAT YOU LIKE SH*T!" Requests for the manager and/or owner left me with responses that Alfredo is both, the manager and the owner.
Okie dokie...if that's the way it's gotta be? The bill had been corrected. And exact change was left. As did my party and I, stunned, confused, and generally unimpressed with both "Lasagna" and our waiter Alfredo. Well, at least I know why they decided not to name the place "Mussels"
Great Lasagna – Great home made style Lasagna. The place is very clean and modern looking. I would definitely good back
Lives up to the name – It was really good and the place in new....looks very modern now compared to the way it looked... the food never changed tho because its always money!
Service was rude, the establishement was dirty and the food was only okay – I'm only giving them 1 star because the food was edible and I didn't get sick. Like the previous review in November we ran into a nasty waiter who was eating and ignoring us. The host/waiter seemed like we were interrupting him and treated us with disdain. Because we were neglected we were able to take time to look around and the establishment needs a thorough cleaning, I'm not sure it would pass a health inspection. The food was okay, not special, in fact I think it was about as good as a frozen entree.
DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY OR TIME ON THIS PLACE.
When we spoke to Noury who is the manager he was beyond rude, I have no idea how a place like this can continue operating as it appears this was NOT an isolated incident.
WORST EXPERIENCE EVER!!! – From the moment we walked in we were treated rudely. The man who seated us and looks like he ran the front was so rude I was shocked. He acted as if he was doing us a favor by seating us in this empty restaurant. We ordered drinks. The drinks were not good at all. The food however was pretty good but the service was ABSOLUTELY TERRIBLE. Honestly I don't know how this place makes any business with someone as rude as he was working there. As soon as our plates were cleared away they brought us the check without us asking for it. We were not ready to go, so we continued our conversation. The same man who seated us came over and basically said if we weren't ordering anything else than they wanted us to leave. When we paused by the door to put our coats on he came over and held the door open so we would go. We were all baffled by this and couldn't believe anyone who worked in a restaurant would treat customers this way. Especially because we did nothing wrong. We were three friends out to dinner, we had drinks and dinner and were done in less than two hours and we tipped well. I really don't understand it but this man was RUDE RUDE RUDE. I would not recommend Lasagna to ANYONE.
Hair in Food. Rude Staff. Nasty Food. Arrogance to the Core. Time to Shut it down. – I do not usually write reviews like this but this restaurant deserves to be shut down.
I was a regular customer in the past. They have me in their computer system as well. So today I ordered 2 Linguine Carbonara which had a lot of hair in it, both of them. I called them up and they refused to reimburse me and were extremely rude. I told them I am an old customer but obviously the person who attended the phone did not care because of his arrogance and crappy attitude. Apparently the manager was on vacation and the owner refused to reimburse.
If you want to get sick by all means go there. They should have a side order of Hair on their menu. They gave it to me for free in my Linguine Carbonara.
I would give it ZERO STARS.
The health inspector should stop by this restaurant for sure.
Awful fest 07 – I literally just signed up for a citysearch account solely because of the terrible experience I just had at Lasagna. My friend and I ordered an appetizer of mozzarella sticks and a plate of gnocchi to share (recent college grads are on a strict budget). When I picked up my second bite of food, there was a crushed spider-looking creature underneath. The staff assured me that the insect was not from the kitchen - not that the origin of it is really of my interest.
We sent the gnocchi back to the kitchen; they still made us pay for the appetizer. Don't go here ever.
