The food was not really that good at all. There were 4 of us and we had different things and no one was happy with there food. Meatballs were the worst I ever tasted. Not even close to authentic Italian style cooking. People that worked there were very nice but seriously the food, you need a better chef.

My family and I loved Passione! The food was excellent and service too. We dined and did not feel rushed. Just like being in Italy. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Made a reservation on Open Table but when we got there , no tables available. We were given a table in back near kitchen. Manager gave us a free appetizer for our patience. Very nice of him. A few fruit flies flying around the table but overall excellent food.

Outstanding attentive service. The Buffalata summer special should be a regular menu item. I had the Bronx Tail Veal Cutlet and it was excellent. Nice portion size(took home enough for dinner the next day). The Veal was fork cut tender and the gravy on the pasta was superb. My wife has the Open Face Lasagna. I was huge and very tasty, There was enough left for the two of for lunch the next day.

Tasty meal and excellent service. Their marinara sauce is the best!! We always feel welcome there and enjoy our dinner. It's very nice to dine here. Varied menu, some specials and fresh fish/ veggies. They are also very accomodating for my Gluten Free needs.

Service was fair! One of my guest sent back her veal dish because it was tough! Didn’t want anything else. She only ate two little pieces and sent it back. You would think that it would have been taken off the bill but it wasn’t. I questioned the waiter and he said he told his manager but the manager said to tell us that he tasted it and found nothing wrong. I was shocked! I asked to see the manager and the waiter came back with a new bill with it removed($26.50). It wasn’t until the next day reviewing the 2nd check that there was an additional charge for a beer that know one had. I needed to call and spoke to a different manager that credited my Amex. If the Manager has come to the table I would have told him that the two veal parmigiana we ordered were also tough.
Perhaps the beer was an honest mistake but the Manager behavior is why I would not go back!

the food was OK - from what I understand it is usually very good. we went for an event that had a prefix menu and the food was ahh at best - choices given were poor and cost was high. I will say the appetizer included a very good meatball. I would go back but not for a prefix menu. to try it again.

My new go to place for Italian food. Veal parmigiana was excellent, soft and tender and enough for two more meals. My wife had one of the July specials called open faced lasagna. OMG, the portion was enough to feed a third world country. What she liked most about that was there was not ricotta cheese, which upsets her stomach. You don’t see that on to many menus. Spaghetti on the side with Bolognese sauce. Best meat sauce I ever had. This restaurant needs to be put on your list of must go to.

It was my husband’s birthday, we traveled an hour to celebrate at this restaurant. We had been there before and had a wonderful experience. This time however, the waiter Had no personality seems pretty stiff and annoyed to be assisting us-basically threw our appetizer at us stood in the corner staring at our table. the second we were done he came and cleared everything. We were completely done in 35 minutes. it was ridiculous

Exceellent service, delicious food. Our dinners were fresh and tasty. My favorite is a combination of veggies with spagetti squash, zucchini, brocoli, spinach and grilled chicken or salmon. The tomato sauce highlights all the flavors. I'm gluten free and this dish works well for me. My husband loves the breads and desert as well. One of our favorite restaurants.

Everything was very nice as always. A few recommendations, please put chocolate gelato on the menu, please keep the patio door closed as there were a few flies around the table and it was a bit humid. Otherwise, very nice.

Thank you!
