very good – it's true that there's nothing fancy or out of this world at Casa Di Meglio, but the food, the service, and the environment are all completely dependable for a good experience. I like to come here for a low-key dinner with friends after work, and I've also done larger family dinners here comfortably. The tira misu is yummy!
OK – went to pre-theater dinner. food was good, nothing fancy. salad dressing was very good, however salad itself was lacking many key ingredients. main course was fine. waiter acted kind of snobby. would try a different restaurant next time.
Decent place for entertaining guests – Went on a Saturday evening, able to get table for 2 after 15 min wait despite pre-theater crowd. Prices are reasonable for midtown Italian food and service was friendly if a little absent-minded beacuse of the pre-theater rush. Food is ok, don't expect anything too creative. Convenient if you or any guests you're entertaining from out of town is staying at a hotel in the Times Square area. Once the theater crowd rushed out to catch their shows, it was more relaxed and you can linger over coffee without being shoo-ed out.
A find – We found a very nice restaurant a half block from Times Square. The pastas were wonderful; the decor modern but not overdone; the prices reasonable.
Worst Delivery Service Ever – I ordered delivery from this restaurant based on the previous positive reviews and was very disappointed. The food took an hour to come. Nothing I ordered was in the bag. Another hour later, I had received my original order and everything was horrible. The pasta was soggy and bland, the chicken dry and the bread hard as a rock. Definitely skip this place.
Great surprise – I was worried about such small restaurant in the theatre district. However, 10 of us went on Sunday after the matinee and we were very pleasantly surprised! The place was not crowded, it was spacious and the food and service were terrific. The prices weren't too bad either.
OK, BUT NOT GREAT! – I would like to say that the service was excellent and the staff really nice. However, I would like to get to the food. We ordered drinks, appetizers, dinner and desert. The drinks were excellent, appetizers ok. Bread served at table was like store bought onion rolls. Fresh Italian bread not in sight. Calamari was ok, but had a very strange dipping sauce, creamy horseradish or something. Brushetta was good, but three very small slices of bread. Dinner-spicy chicken and and hot chicken sausage (not hot, and chicken was dry, not tender). Good flavor in the sauce, however. Another chicken dish, with sundried tomatoes, ok, but nothing great and finally, eggplantparm was good. Menu lacking, need basics, like marsalla chick or veal. I give it a 0 for food presentation Deserts excellent, creamy cheesecake and excellent Tirimisu.
Perfect for a table of 2 or 20! – I came with a group of friends and everything was perfect. The staff was friendly and helpful. The angel hair pasta with salmon was delicious and servings were adequate for 2 people. Go before 8pm so you can try the Pre-theater menu which is a steal for $25! The atmosphere is nice and cozy..perfect for everything from a romantic dinner for two to a big reunion of old friends. Casa di Meglio made us feel right at home.
Great Pre-Theater dinner – I went here on a Monday evening after work with some girlfriends. It was dead, quiet and very quick. The food was great, the pasta dishs were amazing. Casa is good for a great meal without all the fuss.
