I had a wonderful dinner with a friend recently. The service was relaxed because we said we weren't in a hurry. The food was beautifully prepared and presented. Also tasted delicious. We both ordered one of the specials and it was like eating in Italy....More

I got a last minute reservation here before a ballet, and it was fine. An expansive menu, good service. It wasn't the best, but it certainly was good, serviceable Italian food. We enjoyed it. I had the Sangria (not Italian, I know!) and it was...More

Well, we went to NYC on a couples weekend and wanted to try a different but nice restaurant. We found Intermezzo on Travel Zoo and decided to try it! The exterior belies the cozy and clean interior. It is a small but cozy interior with...More

This is a solid, neighborhood Italian restaurant with a decent menu albeit the prices are a bit high for the 'hood. You can usually get a Groupon coupon for Intermezzo and its sister restaurant, Maria Pia (in the theater district).

We were looking for a place for dinner near our hotel and came upon this restaurant. We had a very nice dinner. We ordered the seafood pasta special and were very pleased with the dinner. Great local restaurant if you are in the Chelsea area...More

Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful
brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most
popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s
jewels when it comes to neighbourhood life. The
contemporary art scene is an integral part of the
neighbourhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost
every night of the week and countless exhibits to
explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York
