Pasta Lovers Trattoria
Very good meal at Pasta Lovers, haven’t been there in years, just as good if not better than years ago!
We were on a time constraint and our waiter was very fast and efficient. Food was superb. It was fresh and delicious. Will definitely be back!
A great pasta place that offers real value and is REALLY close to Times Square. Ideal.
I had expected something a bit more generic being so close to Times Square but, I was very pleasantly surprised by our dining experience at Pasta Lovers Trattoria. Our server was excellent - very thorough and pleasant, and the food was quite generous and tasty. We arrived at our appointed time, and were seated right away. I had let them know ahead of time that we needed to leave in an hour to make it to the theatre on time, and they were sure to get us out on time without a problem. Very pleased.
Perfect as always.
The food was fabulous as usual. The service was amazing. They even brought me cheesecake for my birthday.
This lovely basic Italian spot gave me and my two teenaged sons exactly what we were seeking on our one night in New York: food that was tasty and special enough to be worth the cost, a nice quiet atmosphere after the craziness of Times Square, and friendly servers that seemed happy we were there. Highly recommend!
Great! very casual, and friendly place to have lunch or even a cold beer and pizza.
We come here every year at Christmas time. The food has never disappointed so when I came into NYC with some friends I had no qualms about suggesting Pasta Lovers. The food is authentic Italian and delicious. The wait staff are exceptional at their jobs. I had the Rigatoni Bolognese cooked to perfection and the sauce was one of the best I have ever had. The salmon and shrimp oreganota were also good choices.
Dinner after a play. Been here three times before and the food is so delish. Comfort food at its best. Pasta dishes that are so yummy. My go to fave is def the lasagna Bolognese. Excellent baked bubbly large enough to share goodness.
Very reasonable bottled wine selections
My only con would be the staff is sometimes overbearing and at times we felt rushed. Entrees were brought out without any consideration to check table for status of appys. Once they were sent back so we could finish our fried raviolis and rice balls we were back on track. I will continue to come here as the food makes up where service lacks.
The Chilean was out if this world! Cool Hennessy pasta fired up by the table. Excellent service. Perfect business, entertainment lunch!
The food was nothing special. The amount was good but the flavor was not there and the price was extreme. The total with 2 pastas and a dessert was around $70. Not a good deal at all for what you get. Service was wonderful but will big return for the price is not worth it.
Food was delicious and filling! Great service too!
Love this restaurant! Reserved only because it was a block from our theater - put off by the name. But everything we had was fantastic, including the very reasonably priced wine. We all had a special pasta dish prepared table-side and it was outstanding. As was the Caesar salad, eggplant appetizers, and even the bread. Service was perfection. We arrived late, ordered the complicated dishes, and had a curtain deadline - yet, they couldn't have been nicer or more attentive, nothing was rushed. Can't wait to go back. Yes, love this restaurant!
Always get terrific service, delicious food, and the place isn't so noisy that you have to yell to be heard. A neighbourhood favourite.
Its a nice, casual, low key and reasonable restaurant in the heart of times square... food very tasty.
I was disappointed in my meal - chicken francaise. The chicken was very dry - which was very surprising since the restaurant had just opened for the day. Unfortunately, the pasta didn’t redeem the dish since the francaise sauce had very little flavor.
Manager was great, service was great, food was good. Had a great time, thanks so much for everything!
I would have given two stars but gave one star to correct the misleading rating of 4+. Extremely ordinary or below ordinary food. Super overpriced - perhaps because of the location - attracts a lot of tourists. Pasta was half cooked and pizza had raw tomatoes on it (all watery) and too many. The server was also not polite. Overall it was very disappointing.
Amazing food and great dining experience!!! Gave us a glass each of champagne for my wife and my 1 year wedding anniversary. Would recommend to anybody!!!
Lousy service and the food was okay not worth the prices. Definitely won’t go bsck
The pizza was delicious. The server was excellent, funny and so nice
Big portions, good service, good food (mussels and pasta were awesome) we will be back.
My daughter and I ate here, and it was a lovely meal, the staff was very attentive, the food was delicious, portions were very generous. We will definitely consider a return visit next time we're in NY.
We have been to Pasta Lovers several times in the past. The services was excellent but the food was not up to is usual standards. The Rigatoni Bolognese was lacking much meat in its sauce and the Garden Salad had too much Balsamic dressing in it. The waiter was great in getting me more sauce and he brought out a new salad with the dressing on the side.
Great staff very attentive and warm hearted. I will definitely be coming back
Our first visit to this restaurant and we will be back! Lovely dining experience, excellent food, wonderful service. Kudos to our waiter Louis and the rest of the staff.
Great food ! Service was great food was delicious
Food was delicious, affordable prices, nice service! I wilk be back! Loved it
There were 5 of us visiting NYC and going to see a show. Chose this restaurant because it was located between it hotel and the theater. We all had a very good meal at a decent price for being in NY. World definitely go there again
Totally incompetent service.
I was there with my friend to celebrate my Birthday. After the excellent dinner the waitors surprised me with cake and singing happy Birthday. Made me feel so special. Overall a wonderful experience with great food and service.
Found this restaurant on yelp and decided to give it a try. I’m glad we did. Everything about this place was great and our server was awesome and the food outstanding. Thank you for a great dining experience.
The service was not the best but the restaurant was very busy. Food was awesome!
Great service and the pasta was good. Not super gluten free friendly as there are a few options but be careful.
Everything was so delicious. We will be back soon.
This place is a tourist trap that sells overpriced frozen pasta to people not smart enough to go anywhere else. I went here because my girlfriend saw their Instagram and said it looked good. She was wrong. The service was rude. “Here is a menu.” “What do you want to order?” That’s all she said to us all night. Gross food. One dish came out cold. Terrible atmosphere. I would have rather gone to the Olive Garden a few blocks away. This was somehow worse than that.
Everything was great! This was our third time there and we enjoyed every minute of it!
Delicious, we ate there twice on our trip!
I booked a reservation at this restaurant for my daughter’s birthday. I had eaten here before and it was always great. It has been a while and I found that I was disappointed in both the service and one of the signature pasta specials. The service was lacking any warmth and not welcoming but I believe it may have been in part due to not having many servers, were not very attentive did not come to check to make sure all was good. The meals were ok with the exception of the signature pasta special which is a “table side” pasta cheese wheel which was not served “table-side”. It was prepared out in the dining room but NOT in front of your table so you can see it made. That was the attraction to the dish and why it was ordered but that was a fail and although cooked in the cheese wheel was not cheesy at all. So overall disappointing. They did end the meal on a bright note by bringing out a birthday slice of cheesecake for my daughter and sang happy birthday. Not sure that I will make it a point to return.
