It was not as good as I expected. The linguini with white clams were awful. Too big, fishy and the pasta had no taste. The linguini with Marinara was too hard.. It was not edible.The chicken parm was great. I probably would not return.

I was disappointed to say the least. The staff is attentive and lovely, but the food was medicore and ambiance was totally lacking. Chazz happened to be dining there that evening as well, I hope he saw what I saw and makes improvements quickly!

Dined at 7 pm on a Saturday evening. Unhappy to report that Chazz Palminteri in White Plains is not ready for prime time. We were seated promptly at a small table that was subject to a draft every time the front door opened. Ordered a Negroni that was quite good; was taken aback at the $22.95 price tag when the check arrived. Was also surprised when the menu prices were about 20% higher than the prices shown on their website. We ordered an appetizer and two mains that included the seafood risotto. Emphasized that there couldn’t be mussels in the risotto because of an allergy. The octopus appetizer was quite good and plentiful. When the entrees arrived the risotto was loaded with mussels. One of the maitre d’s told me that it would be quickly re-done. Ha! It took almost 20 minutes. By then my wife had finished her gnocchi that she thought was pretty good. Had to constantly request that the water glasses be re-filled. As I sat waiting for the new risotto while my wife ate, not once did any staff say a word, offer to check on the kitchen or make the slightest apology. It was only when I spoke up that a manager went into the kitchen to see what was happening. When the risotto finally arrived the rice, unsurprisingly, was under-cooked. They wound up comping the risotto, as they should have and then profusely apologized. Given the ubiquity of good Italian restaurants in Westchester I don’t have great hopes for the success of this restaurant unless it improves its performance.

Food was delicious. Bread is great. A full plate/cup of olives makes for a nicer presentation than 4 olives on a plate. Baked clams, fried calamari & Pappardelle Bolognese. Chicken parm should come with a veggie. Typo on your menu: cannolis not cannoli’s. Tiramisu was divine. Service was great.

Went during restaurant week so it didn't cost as much as it would with the regular menu. The regular menu prices seemed reasonable, not more or less than other restaurants in the area. I must say that the food was delicious. The place was packed, service was great, during each course our waitress checked that everything was fine with our meal, she was very personable. All in all a great evening. Will definitely be back.

Horrible experience I was expecting a great evening at “Chazz Palminteri Italian Restaurant” … starting from our drinks all the way into dinner. They run out of the soup we had ordered and our waiter never informs us but decides to serves us what he wanted us to have. Service was terrible.

The restaurant was tightly packed, So much so, that our waiter kept knocking the window decorations (wine bottles) down

Food:

My Salmon came out way way undercooked. When I sent it back, it went into a microwave - I received rubber on a plate

If the food isn’t good in an Italian restaurant, what’s the point …..

We went for the Hudson Valley Restaurant Week. Had 6 people in our party and for the most part the food was very good. Portions for the ravioli entree was small (4) but the guests that had it said it was filling. The calamari was very good and the chicken parmigiana was very good. Dessert was very good and reasonably portioned.

This was our second time dining here. Our first experience was better (perhaps because it wasn’t as busy, being a weeknight), with both food & service. The food was good overall, as the apps were especially delicious, while the entree (Chicken Rollatine) was lacking flavor, dry, and a very small portion. My wife’s chicken Parmesan was fine however. As for service, we had a new waiter, who was very nice and trying hard, but having difficulty keeping up with his station and made several mistakes. He was very pleasant and doing his best, so we didn’t mind the errors. Management was also very attentive and checked in on us several times. Overall, it was a mediocre experience, but we will certainly be back to give it another try.

Parking for this restaurant is terrible. You have to constantly keep feeding the meter. And if you park on the street before 6:00pm, you can only leave your car there for 20 minutes.

The waiters were not all wearing masks. There was no consistency to their policy. Some waiters wore masks, some wore them around their chin, some didn’t wear at all. Very stressful. Extremely crowded with tables too close together.
My veal dish was delicious but my husbands and two other guests had pasta with shrimp that was not good at all. Shrimp were teeny tiny and sauce was like tomato soup.
And the bread was awful!!! Should not be served in a restaurant charging NYC prices!!

Very nice experience at Chazz
To start valet parking makes it a nice
start. We were seated promptly and
was welcomed. The manager is hands on
and quite noticeable.
We started with a margarita pizza which
was excellent. The baked clams, grilled octopus
and meatballs (weren’t hot) were great starters
Dinners were very good. The chicken rolatini and veal Marsala were very good. The veal saltiboca was just fair
Would surely go back again.

Sat at the bar prior to my reservation and had a Martini. My directions were "slightly dirty", but i thought i was drinking straight olive juice.

Appetizers were underwhelming.

Entree's were better, but just above average. I understand finding food service workers in the current environment is tough, but your Chef has got to be aces, and protect your brand.

Our waiter forgot to tell us about specials, and he was inattentive and hard to track down to get service. I believe they were understaffed.
