Diner Reviews
  • "This is a mediocre restaurant that caters to the pre-theater group looking for an easy place to eat. The food is a bit overpriced for what you get but again it is in a good location right in the Times Square area. Servers are very attentive."

  • "Great bread, caesar salad, fried cheese & zuchinni app. Lasagna Bolognese was a bit mushy & chicken parm ok. Loved the marinara sauce on pastas. Penne a la vodka excellent. Friendly efficient staff."

  • "Excellent location. Food is very good. Service was good, but could have been better. Waiters were hanging around and should have come to our table sooner. The restaurant was practically empty and so much time went by before our drink order was taken. This was a pre-show dinner and time was important."
    Dined on 5/16/2014
  • "We had some time before a show to have dinner. We were looking for something quick, but good. The portions were large and tasted fine, but nothing spectacular. "

  • "My daughter and I had dinner here last Saturday evening before seeing a show on 42nd street. Dinner was delicious. The service was great and the food came out quickly. It was just a short walk to our show after dinner. I will definitely return next time I am in Times Square. "
    Dined on 4/26/2014
  • "We stopped in for lunch before a 2pm show. The staff was very friendly, it's a nice atmosphere and our lunch was great. The portions were large and all 3 of us were very happy with our food. We even stopped in after the show for half price happy hour! I would recommend and we will return."

  • "We were in a pinch to find dinner with the kids. We had seen this place the day before and my son had remembered. I jumped on Open Table and was able to get a reservation without a problem. We would highly recommend this place. Food and Service was great. The prices are great too for dining in NYC."

  • "My husband and I went here for a quick dinner before a show. It was exactly what we were looking for. The good was delicious and the staff was friendly. There were three large groups with children but it was still quiet "

  • "We booked a table for 7 with 45 minutes notice and the host worked us in on a busy holiday Friday night. The mussels were outstanding, followed by pizzas and pastas that pleased everyone. Wine list provides options for any taste and budget. Don't be scared off by the fact they don't have a picture on their Open Table profile, these folks provide a great dinner and environment. "

  • "This is a great place for a nice pre-theater dinner. The menu is good, with selections that suit everyone (we had a vegetarian, a picky kid, and a snobby foodie as part of our group.) The wait staff was attentive and made sure we got out with plenty of time to make our curtain. "
    Dined on 4/17/2014
  • "The food was fine. A little heavy on the sauces, but good. Nothing outstanding, but solid. Don't plan on spending a lot of time here. They get you in and out quickly. Food came within minutes of our order. Convenient to theater district. The host was not very warm and friendly, but we were seated quickly on a Wednesday night."

  • "Took party of 9 for dinner before show on a Saturday night. Arrived at 5:30 and each enjoyed a delicious meal in a festive yet relaxed atmousphere, no feeling of being rushed out, portions were large and food prepared perfectly. Very reasonably priced. Our group ranged in age from 12-75 and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Having eaten in dozens of italian restaurants all over NYC, I would count this as one of my new favorites. I will definitely come back!"

  • "Went to Pasta Lovers with my daughter on a Thursday night before going to see a Broadway show. The service was outstanding, but that might have had a lot to do with the fact that the place was practically empty. I had Chicken Scarpariello and my daughter had grilled lamb chops. She loved her chops. I enjoyed my meal, but it was a tiny bit overly spicy. We had crab cakes for appetizers and they were mushy. It was convenient to the theater and I would go back again, but would probably order pasta!"

  • "This is East of seventh and is a good find- both pricing and food quality. Can get lighter fare than is typical further west. Good for theater regulars tired of the normal scene."

  • "We stopped in here before a Saturday matinee. Super convenient location, and really good food...varied menu...the waitstaff was very friendly and accommodating, and the entire place was immaculate!"
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "I've been here several times before heading to the theatre and this place has never disappointed! If you let the staff know you have a curtain to make they go out of their way to see it happens. The food has always been delicious and plenty of it. Definitely one of the better and more reasonably priced restaurants in the theatre district."
    Dined on 3/20/2014
  • "Have had meals here maybe 12 times over past 3 years. The food is average to poor, service slow and if not convienent for clients I would not dine here again. I say that every time I eat here but still return due to its location, only."

  • "My cousins and I ate at Pasta Lovers Trattoria on Saturday, March 15, 2014 after seeing a matinee. We were a party of five and were seated immediately. We were shown to a lovely banquette in the back of the restaurant. The staff was friendly and knowlegdeable. Our waiter made recommendations and was able to describe different dishes that we inquired about. Our food arrived quickly, was hot and very tasty. Three of us enjoyed the Chilean sea bass with risotto (the fish was fresh and the risotto was creamy and delicious) and the other two had pasta dishes. Two of us brought home a good sized portion our dinners. I had actually dined there a few years ago, and when I recognized the restaurant I knew that we had made a good choice."

  • "Near my office menu offers decent well optioned fare. In a location that offers very expensive options or food trucks this local place is a gift."
    Dined on 3/3/2014
  • "Found through Open Table App about 3 hours before Saturday evening dinner when some others were already booked. The staff was welcoming and attentive, the food was VERY good, and reasonable (considering Times Square location), and the restaurant was open, roomy, and more elegant than I expected. It's our new "go-to" in Times Square."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "We were a group of 14 looking for a place to eat near Times Square on a Saturday night. I'm so glad that we ended up here. The service was excellent. They accomodated us quickly, the food was wonderful and we felt very welcomed. It wa a lovely, quiet spot to regroup from the hustle and bustle of New York after our matinee. I would highly recommend Pasta Lovers Trattoria."

  • "Having been put off by the name, I was surprised by the very good pasta (lobster ravioli special) and cappuccino. All pastas were $19.95. The restaurant was pleasant and quiet in the back and there was a fairly lively bar scene in front for the younger set. Mostly for tourists, perhaps, but I'd go back because of decent food and good value"

  • "Great restaurant for family. Good food and reasonably priced. Very kid-friendly and many selections that most kids would enjoy. Wait staff very accommodating. Service can be a little slow if you are in a rush so relax."

  • "Had a nice dinner here with my girlfriend and our 2 teenage daughters before a Broadway show. Very good service, nice menu, cozy atmosphere and very good food. Would come here again."
    Dined on 12/29/2013
  • "This is a great spot for lunch away from the crowds of Times Square. We opted for pizza to share . We decided to get the stuffed crust pizza -baked ziti. The small size is good for two. The baked ziti in the pizza was very delish. I would come back for the pizza and opt to try their pastas."

  • "We were a party of nine and we were all happy with the restaurant! The food was delicious, and the restaurant was decorated beautifully for the holidays. The service was excellent and the prices were reasonable. Desserts were worthwhile. We will be going back."

  • "Our family of 5 went before a show. It was a great location. The ages of our group ranged from 15-47. The menu had a lot of options and this is what we needed to please 5 picky kids. My son had stuffed pizza, a daughter had raviolis and another daughter had spaghetti and meatballs. My husband had salmon over chickpeas and cucumber salad and I had grilled lemon chicken over arugula. The salmon was delicious. All of the food was good. I would not say outstanding food, but for the purpose we needed, it was good and I would recommend it for families looking for an alternative to a fast food option. The restaurant also had a decent wine list to pick from."

  • "Had a group of 6 who went for lunch on a Wed prior to seeing the Xmas spectacular. Nice variety of house wines. Everyone liked their main entree. Main course came before we finished the apps but it seemed they just were use to having people who needed to eat and run. We had plenty of time so weren't in a hurry. Everyone said they would come back."

  • "This was a last minute reservation while sitting in traffic waiting to enter the QMT. The general consensus was italian and this was the closest to our Icon garage with availability. It was packed, but we were seated fairly quickly. Our waiter was overwhelmed with a very large and VERY NEEDY group behind us, which made our service lag. Our runner/busboy however was so very attentive and had deer in headlights eyes, I wanted to give him a hug. Granted it was a Friday night in December, but there should have been more help. The food was decent. They nicely offered my daughter a half portion which saves on the bill. We didn't stay for dessert because we knew it would be a while and we just wanted to get in, see the tree and go home."

  • "Enjoyed a great casual meal...calamari appetizer, ziti siciliano, whole wheat pasta dishes were awesome! Festive atmosphere and super friendly service helped kick off our holiday trip to see the tree and show at Radio City. My family (6 with 2 kids) loved the choice of restaurant! Will definitely go back!"
