Had to wait at a very crowded front desk for someone to seat us. Once he came and checked us in he pointed to a table but did not escort us. Once we sat down we had to wait for a server to bring us menus. Then we waited to order drinks which we’re good. Once we ordered our food it took a good 15 mins to come. So long that the server offered us slices of pizza while we waited. The minestrone soup I ordered came in a small bowl with a big pepper in it making the volume of the soup very little. Wouldn’t order it again. My fish was very good. The black pasta ordered by a person at my table was to creamy. The rest of the food we ordered was good. We were to full to order dessert. Except for the seating problem and the long wait for our food, we liked our experience.

As usual consistently great!!! Traditional Italian food made with fresh ingredients and presented wonderfully. It’s a feast for your eyes nose and taste buds. Owner Emilio is attentive and always making sure his guests are happy. Not like other places where you don’t even know where the owner is or who’s in charge. He’s proud of his establishment and doesn’t mind showing it and being out in front. Thank you Emilio for a job well done and an enjoyable evening.

Portions were small but food was good. We waited for a long time for our menus. We were very cold think there was a draft coming from somewhere. Food was very good and wait staff was very nice. Also a very nice atmosphere

Decent Italian fare but an uninteresting menu. If you are looking for Italian American classics like chicken Parmagianni, you will enjoy.

Passione Della Cucina was an awesome dining spot. I cannot believe that I have waited so long to go there. Service was outstanding. Our server was attentive, professional, knowledgeable and personable. Our service was well orchestrated and spot on. The food was made with attention to detail and was freshly prepared. Soup was hardy, hot and filling - broth was excellent. Homemade pasta was light - cooked perfectly and delicious. The 8-hour sauce was outstanding - fresh - deep flavors - nicely seasoned and mated perfectly with the pasta. The meatballs were simply - the best I have ever had. My wife's sit in the top spot with little competition - that changed after having these meatballs - WOW. The flatbread pizza from the wood burning oven was cooked perfectly - nice crisp - the sauce and other toppings were excellent. The wine list is compact - but offers a nice variety and didn't disappoint. No dessert this time - better planning next time - also need to have the Cappuccino - two cups went by to another table and smelled amazing.

Fabulous from entry to exit. Very quiet tonight as it’s right after the major holidays and was raining but the atmosphere was still warm and comfortable. Service was prompt and attentive and not rushed which was very welcomed. Appetizers were flavorful and plenty to share with a party of five. Entrees were enough for two meals. Food is very fresh and beautifully plated. Passione never disapponts.

Service was horrible. We had a reservations at 8:30 but didn’t sit down till 9:15. The owner kept sitting people before us that didn’t have a reservation. When asked he said it was doing it on the needs of the restaurant. The food tasted bad too. If it wasn’t New Year’s Eve we would have left. I would never go back there again. Stay away.

We have dined here often however tonight was the worst. I know it was NYE so I had to be alittle understanding to some things. The service was horrible, the waiters had way to many tables and couldn’t handle. The dish I ordered came out cold and the mozzarella wasn’t even melted. I called the owner over and he asked If I wanted it “warmed” or he would make a new one if I had time to wait. I didn’t come out to have my food reheated like it was put in a microwave. I asked the Waiter for more of a specific kind of bread and his answer was I don’t think I have any but I’ll see what I can do. Not a good answer. I felt the whole meal to be a disaster and was very disappointed. Not even offered a cup of coffee for the inconvenience of my cold food. Needless to say I will not be returning

Food was delicious as always. Service is usually quite good but virtually non-existent this time around. He served one person’s salad and the others waited 10-15 minutes for their salad

Waiter was impossible to find the entire evening. He messed up the bill and then we had to wait again for the correction.

We had a lovely evening but the poor service put a damper on it

We arrived at the restaurant and were told that our table was being cleaned off. The manager came over and said he didn’t want us to wait so he sat us at a giant booth in the back with a great private dining experience. Food was delicious as usual and always have room for dessert at Passione!

The food was very good. The service was iffy. The server was somewhat rude, seemed short tempered, and sarcastic - I was told later that this was typical New York "attitude". As a non New Yorker I was taken aback. Overall I give this restaurant 4 stars, it was a very pleasant to find a local restaurant that is locally owned! I would highly recommend this restaurant.
