Reviews for Via Maestra 42

Julie C

We stayed close by to this restaurant which is an authentic Italian restaurant, the food is superb, service is very good. It is always busy day and evenings. No reservations taken unless for six or more people. They always seem to fit you in. We went on Saturday evening, we tried to go on Sunday but it was closed.

I had years buying there a tiramisu slide cake to be exactly. I remember when the price was 4.99 and slide was double bigger than today when the price is 6.99. I was so sad when I saw my slices at home. But I promess I will never return to this place. People are nice but I am not happy for the food prices and how it looks.

High quality food. You have to order at the counter, and because the place is so good, there are often frustrating waits, but its worth it. The pastas, salads, sandwiches, and pastries are all top notch. Restrooms are for employees only; so be sure to PB4UGO.
