Founded in 1944 by Pasqual "Patsy" Scognamillo, patsy's Italian restaurant has been in its current and only theater district location (in the building just next to the original site) since 1954. In over 65 years of existence, patsy's Italian restaurant has had only three chefs-the late patsy himself, his son Joe Scognamillo, who has been at the establishment since the tender age of seven, and Joe's son Sal Scognamillo, who has been manning the kitchen for the past 25 years. What great Neapolitan Italian restaurant doesn't offer a vast array of mouth-watering pasta dishes? Patsy's Italian restaurant, of course, serves some of the finest in the city including linguine puttanesca, penne alla vodka, tortellini Bolognese, spaghetti or whole-wheat pasta marinara, and cannelloni with meat sauce.
