This is our favorite restaurant in South Florida. Great Italian food in a state that does not have many great Italian restaurants. We walk in and get treated as though we are
VIP'S. Wonderful people and service. The veal and peppers are to die for. They melt in your mouth. We try to go twice a week. Pizza one day and great italian dishes the next time. Sal and Janet are the best and so are their children who also work there.
My wife and I ate at this restaurant last night. I order chicken parm and she had lasagna. I tasted her lasagna and it was very good, although it had a little bit too much cheese on top for my taste. With the new summer special ( buy 1 dinner and get 2nd of equal or lower value half off ), it was a bargain. I'm not a big Minestrone fan so I can't say anything about the soup. The chicken was cooked to perfection. Not oiling and the breading stayed on the chicken. It came with a side of pasta and garlic rolls. I could barely sqeeze in the ice cream afterwards. The special includes drink, soup or salad, and ice cream for dessert. Now all we have to do is get a sicilian pizza there. We've already had the neopolitan style, which is very good too. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone. Very clean, nice decor, and plenty of room for large parties.
It's sad to say after reviewing so many good restaurants and eateries that I must write a negative review. Where do I even start? I guess the beginning would be a good place.
Though tonight’s dining experience was not one I had intended to review, I felt the need to make my listeners/readers aware of this dreadful experience. I am thankful that I had good company for this mealtime travesty; otherwise the entire evening would have been a total loss.
Bread is an item that is traditionally found on even the least traditional type of Italian restaurant tables, but at New York Style Restaurant in the plaza on the corner of Jog and Lake Worth, we had to ask our surly server for this starter. I suppose a good clue to how the dining experience was going to turn out should have been the attitude of the waitress. It seemed she was incapable of squeezing out a smile or a pleasant word, as if her tip didn’t depend on it.
I wish I could stop this review there, but the hits kept on coming. One of my guests this night is allergic to tomatoes but loves Veal Parmesan. In every Italian restaurant we have been to, when she orders this dish, her allergy has been accommodated by substituting Alfredo sauce for the tomato sauce. I was amazed to hear that not only will New York Style Pizza not make this substitution willingly, they feel the need to charge a fee of $5.95 for a cup of what turned out to be thin, runny, tasteless, very much less than adequate Alfredo Sauce.
Now, I might have been able to end this review on that sour note if the rest of the meal had been good, but alas only that much disappointment was too much to ask for this evening. Two meal mates ordered a salmon dish. When these plates came to the table we all had to move away from them as the horrific odor emanating from the spoiled fish was nauseating. It is beyond comprehension that the waitress didn’t realize the fish she was carrying was bad from the smell, before delivering it to our table. And although this may sound humorous, I still can’t end this review without mentioning that we had to practically get on our knees to beg for refills of water!
And there’s still more…
The last item, as small as it sounds, is the icing on the cake so to speak. When asked what dessert we would like, we told our waitress that we were full but since it came with the meal, we would take the dessert home. With all that was said and done this evening, you would think that the issue of dessert would be an accommodation to some very unhappy and unsatisfied patrons with a tab of over $100.00, but as the rest of this woefully inadequate meal had gone, with an unfriendly face, I was told that the dessert that comes with the meal could not be taken home.
I now will not waste any more of your time with this review, but will say that if you are looking for an extremely poor dining experience, New York Style Pizza is the place to go.

PS I left out a great deal of what made this meal a dining disaster, because even I can’t believe all that went wrong in just one night.
