Description: Patrizia's is an authentic European Italian restaurant located in Plymouth's historic waterfront. We believe in the Italian culinary tradition of cooking "secondo la stagione," which is based on seasonally available produce and the daily catch, featuring hearty dishes in the cold winter months and lighter fare in spring and summer. Come and have your family discover the dolce vita!

Some of the reviews I read before trying this restaurant were not that favorable, however we had been wanting to try it so we soldiered on. What a wonderful time we had. Cher and Clayton were excellent,pleasant and couldn't have been more helpful. Cannot say enough good things about our meal. Just delicious! The atmosphere was lovely. Mind you, this is 'off season' so it may not have been as busy as in summer. Having said that we plan to go again and take our friends. Topnotch and well worth it.

This was my second time at this restaurant. The first time the food was way subpar so we thought we would tie it a second try because it seems everyone else had good experience. we went on Valentines day. The tuna tartar and the crab cakes for appetizers were great!. My main meal was filet over potatoes topped with asparagus and lobster. The steak was cooked perfect but he lobster on top was a bit dry and tough (microwaved?). The service was good, the food coming out a bit slow but probably because valentines day. We were seated on the outdoor patio which they enclose in plastic sheets in the winter. They have a propane (i know because you could smell it) fire pit and a heater above on the wall but my legs were still quite chilly. I think it is a bit over priced for what you get and the accommodations.

Went their with my wife and son for my birthday. When we arrived we ask to have a cocktail at the bar, they told they were closing early (our time of arrival was 7:35PM) and we had no time for a drink, told us we could have a drink at our table (we should have left at that moment). First off, they informed us of the numerous items they either were out of or were substituting. They then presented the specials - with out prices. We ordered two of the specials; my wife chose tenderloin (medium) with lobster meat. Her meal arrived and the cut of the meat was from the tail end (normally reserved for tips), it was tall - small in diameter, and it was raw. Should could not eat it. The lobster meat was from the knuckle (hard with no flavor).Oh, by the way did I mention this special was $42.00. Typically (always frankly) a $42.00 tenderloin in center cut. I ordered shrimp wrapped in sea bass. The waiter delivered two of what they called "turbines". They were about the diameter of a silver dollar and the bass still had the skin on it. By the time I removed the skin, I cut what was left in half (a total of 4 fork fills) and was done. It was served with nothing else. In addition, it was cold. All this for only $36.00. Ultimately, the bill came to nearly $250.00 for three people (this included two cocktails’, 1 glass of wine and one cordial). For over $80.00 / person 1 being a minor with no alcohol, we have eaten in the finest restaurants in Manhattan including La-Bernadine, Flays, Ruth Chris, Marea and Daniel. The only comparison I can draw between these fine establishments that are located in the most expensive real estate on the planet and Patrizias in Plymouth is the price. Beyond the food, the atmosphere is boring, their is no decor and the service is marginal. Will never go back.

We were at this restaurant on a busy festival day prior to the Thanksgiving holiday. Our hosts obtained an early evening reservation because they knew it would get crowded and noisy.
We were seated in the rear portion of the restaurant which is starkly decorated with little ambiance and with tables uncomfortably close (we lived in England and Italy for many years, and while tables there are often close, one does not require the person at the next table to move so that you can get out of your seat).
The menu is overly ambitious and tries to be spectacular without paying attention to the basics of a quality product, professionally prepared, and properly presented. The kitchen which purports to be Italian, should recall the rule learned at momma's knee: "Buono e abbastanza buono"..."Good is good enough". Patrizia's overloads their entrees with gratuitous garnishes trying to impress with diversity/quantity rather than paying attention to quality.
First course - carpaccio - a nice presentation but someone poured a shakerful of salt over the beef making it inedible. We returned this to the kitchen and asked the chef to sample his ruined creation - we heard no response from the kitchen, management or waiter.
Entrees 1 and 2 - veal saltimbocca - the two women in our party ordered this to their regret. Both dishes came out presented as a glutinous, cold (cold!) mess. The veal was the size of a dinner plate and had been pounded into an oatmeal-like consistency. Once again, dishes were returned to at least be reheated so that a bite could be taken. The waiter returned 20 minutes later with 2 "newly prepared" dishes. My dinner companion took two bites of the veal and put her cutlery down without voicing further complaint and ate a slice of bread to complete her meal. The other woman did eat most of her veal saying all the time how poor her entree was and how she and her husband usually were happy at this restaurant.
Entrees 3 and 4 - I can't recall what they were but no complaints
Third course - we decided to pass on this because the restaurant was so noisy that it was now becoming difficult to hold a conversation.
Same rationale applied to a cheese and fruit plate. We left the restaurant and had desert and coffee at a different locale.
Each member of our party had a pre-dinner cocktail and a glass of wine with the meal. Cost with tip (the waiter tried his best and kept up apologies throughout the evening): $385.00 - a waste of money and time.
Looking at other reviews, this may have been one of those "off nights" but I can guarantee that we will not return to give it another try.
