Diner Reviews
  • "Never disappointed at Pasta Pane--food and service are always top-notch. "
    Dined on 4/19/2014
  • "We were pleased with our waiter but we felt the prices were a bit high (although in Clifton Park that's probably not an issue for most) and we were disappointed that it took forever to get our desserts. Our coffee was kind of an afterthought (in the midst and after dessert was brought out rather than before desserts so we didn't have to focus so much on how long dessert was taking) and they were not brought out together. My daughter (the youngest) got hers last which was my biggest peeve. I don't think this was the waiters fault as much as the fact that we were celebrating a birthday and getting all the wait staff together to sing seemed to throw the timing off. Food was great though. "

  • "We love everything Pasta Pane has to offer. We bring our little kids with us and always enjoy our choices and the specials. We come here quite often to celebrate our anniversary and other special occasions. Always an easy pick for us when we want to go out! "

  • "My husband and I celebrated our 26th Wedding Anniversary on April 9th, 2014, and we decided to have our "special" dinner at Pasta Pane along with my son and his girlfriend. From start to finish the food was fabulous. Mamma Theresa was a hoot and we loved talking to her. Her desserts were phenomenal. Chef James Frese did a fabulous job on all of our meals and appetizers. Thumbs up to Pasta Pane!!!"

  • "We went to a friend's home and they had food catered from Pasta Pane. Loved the food right from the start there and HAD to go to the restaurant. I've never had a bad meal and the service was great."

  • "A great restaurant in a convenient location. Friendly staff and great food."
    Dined on 4/3/2014
  • "Overall, we had a good experience as we have had in the past. Not to focus only on the negative, but the waiter seemed to be in a bit of a hurry as he did not tell use the specials before asking what we would like to order. Also, the old fashioned ordered from the bar was a bit heavy on the bourbon and lacking in the bitters. Otherwise, would go again."

  • "Never disappointed here. The food is excellent and the service can't be beat."

  • "I went to the Pasta Pane for the first time last week. There was a group of 3 of us and we all had a fantastic meal. The food was incredible. Our waitress was so attentive and very thorough. I will definitely return to this restaurant and will probably know frequent some of the other DZ restaurants."

  • "We are regular customers of the D Z Restaurant group. Pasta Pane & Boca Bistro are our favorites. Everything was excellent, tonight, except for 1 piece of veal on my wife's dish that was not pounded properly and was too tough to eat. Waiter offered to cook more, make a substitute, so he took 1 glass of wine off our bill instead. Their rewards program shows the customer that they really appreciate you and want you back. We will return."

  • "This place is an unrecognizable former Applebee's converted (heavily converted) into a beautiful, romantic, cozy and comfy Italian bistro. Great atmosphere, service, food and moderate pricing. Worth a stop anytime from "something to eat" to "anniversary dinner." First time there -- will be back again soon."

  • "I took my Mom here for her birthday dinner . We always have a wonderful meal. The food is excellent and the service is very good. We were seated in a pretty dark area of the restaurant, so we had to use our cell phone lights to actually read the menu. I think that the tables should have a little more light on them, either over head or some type of candle/small lamp on the table. Other than the lighting, the restaurant is one of our favorites."
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "The only complaint about this was how close we were sitting to other diners. We went on Valentine's Day and I think they setup a bunch of smaller tables for the occasion. Theses tables were extremely close to each other though. I felt like I was basically at the same table as those around me. That said, the food and service were both very good and I would highly recommend this place to others. I will be returning again."

  • "Our dinner was delicious and the ambiance was lovely. Staff was very friendly!"
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "The food here is always great. This is not the usual Italian fare so you won't find chicken parmigiano or lasagna. What you will find are dishes you have not seen before. On this occasion, my wife had a pasta dish made with langostino and chorizo in a tarragon cream sauce. I had a wonderful grilled swordfish with a pesto sauce, roasted sweet potatoes and cauliflower. Both dishes were wonderful. This restaurant makes there own bread which is the best I've ever had. The bread is crusty on the outside and airy on the inside and always served hot from the oven. My wife and I are New York City transplants and we missed the good Italian bread we had there, but I have to say that the bread at Pasta Pane is the best I have had anywhere!"

  • "We reserved a table for 4 at 5.00pm. Menu was great. Had a before 5.30 menu from which 2 of us ordered. Food was excellent. Drinks on the other hand were skimpy and pricey. Bartender needs lessons on how to make a proper old fashioned and manhattan sweet. Meals came out rather quickly and were excellent. All 4 of us had something different. Desserts were great. Would definitely recommend to others. Do yourself a favor and drink before you come."

  • "Been here multiple times, great each time. Excellent food, attentive service!"
    Dined on 1/11/2014
  • "The food is always wonderful here. The tables are positioned too close together. My husband and I do not like to hear other diners conversations and we heard those of both seated on each of our sides. This also makes limited private conversation between us, because we do not want anyone else hearing our discussion. Also the wine glasses were too small - I appreciate a larger glass. It felt like a child's glass in my hand. Please share this with the restaurant."

  • "I have dined at Pasta Pane many times. Sometimes with 1 other person, sometimes with a group. The food, service and attention to detail is always great. The bread is always fresh and warm, the appetizers are large enough for 2, the entree has always been fresh, plentiful and delicious and the waitstaff is friendly, respectful and on top of everything. Thanks for another wonderful evening."

  • "I frequently dine at Pasta Pane but this time was joined by friends moving out of town. Their comments were that the Filet was the best flavor they had had in a long time."

  • "We tried Pasta Pane for the first time Saturday night. The menu had selections for both the foodie and the meat-n-potatoes type of eaters. We both had an appetizer and entree that we really enjoyed. We also noted the bar area also looked cozy and would be a nice place to stop for drinks and appetizers. We will definitely return :)!"

  • "It was our groups first time here, and we cannot wait to go back. Our waiter, Dave, was great and could answer any question we through at him. The restaurant was clean, and staff was organized. The food was awesome and our glasses were never empty. Whether your with the girls or a date night it is a great place."

  • "Absolutely loved it!! The food was outstanding and the service unmatched! Our guy was not super knowledgeable about wines but he paid attention to the popular orders and steered us in the right direction. Another positive was that the food was served timely, I've been in restuarants where the food takes forever but this was a great balance! What a well run restaurant!"
    Dined on 10/19/2013
  • "My wife and I went to Pizza Pane on a Friday evening for our anniversary. I made a reservation and mentioned it was our anniversary. And, it really was. The restuarant gave us a couple glasses of champage and the manager stopped by twice to check on us. Our food was very good, our waiter Brian was excellent, and the ambiance and decor was outstanding. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone."

  • "If you haven't already, add Pasta pane to the short (yet growing list) of capital region spots offering inspired, quality food. Have been there several times and always loved everything. I had a delicious salmon special with a roasted red pepper sauce and the server was more than accommodating to replace the starch it came with for another side. In the area of Clifton park it can be difficult to find a restaurant that isn't park of some microwave prepared food chain(olive garden, Fridays, etc) check out pasta pane. You'll be glad you did"
