    Love this restaurant. Brought the kids though they just wanted plain pasta. So $26 for the 2 of them to eat a $1 box of pasta and 1 scoop of ice cream seems high. Will keep this an adult only dinning place since it is my favorite. Food is amazing.

    Dined on 9/27/2014
    We had been long time fans of this restaurant. While the food remains excellent, our waitress was a major disappointment. We explained that we were vegetarian and ordered a vegetarian soup. We were served a soup that we did not order, which contained fish. There was was no apology, nor did she seem to care how the rest of our meal was. We all felt that our service was inattentive from start to finish. Avoid this restaurant on a Saturday night if you are looking for a good dining experience. I did contact the restaurant directly to give them my opinion, but never heard back from them. I guess they do not care either!

    Dined on 8/21/2014
    While the menu never changes and the wine list is equally constant (no liquor license), one can enjoy a very satisfying dining experience at Pasta Pasta. Having selected every menu option of interest over the years, including the ever changing seasonal specials, I personally suggest sticking with the restaurants namesake. The restaurant is very quaint, but with limited preferred seating (half of the restaurant is stuck behind a wall with no windows and little ambiance. Think of Pasta Pasta as comfort food and a comfortable setting.

    SteakAficionado
    Dined on 8/20/2014
    The pasta is very good, although the menu doesn't change often. The seasonal daily specials make up for the ever constant menu. Stick with pasta as the name suggests and you will not be disappointed. Venturing into steak and fish categories may leave you wishing you went elsewhere. Pasta Pasta is more of a fun local hangout than a restaurant taking itself too seriously. You haven't been to Pasta Pasta unless you've tried the dessert called chocolate bag. Like its name suggests, it is dark chocolate in the shape of a small paper bag filled with white chocolate mousse and fresh berries.

    My husband and I have been savoring the ambience and the exquisite fare of Pasta Pasta for more than 20 years. The setting is romantic elegance, and the waitstaff is friendly, attentive and efficient. The food is always phenomenal, from the unique and eclectic appetizers to the richly sumptuous entrees to the decadent desserts, all plated beautifully. No matter how many restaurants we have tried and enjoyed over the years, Pasta Pasta has consistently remained my all-time favorite and my number one choice. I highly recommend Pasta Pasta to everyone I know who is looking for a fabulous meal.

    I MADE THE RESERVATION AT LEAST 5 DAYS IN ADVANCE I REQUESTED A SIDE TABLE BY THE WINDOW FOR OUR 40TH ANNIVERSARY, NEVER GOT THAT TABLE, BUT THEY NEVER EVEN ACKNOWLEDGED OUR ANNIVERSARY. MY WIFE'S DINNER WASN'T BAD. I ORDERED THE CRISPY RAVIOLI PARMESAN. IT WAS ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE. THEY WEREN'T CRISPY, THEY WERE ROCK HARD THROUGH. NOT TO CAUSE A SCENE ON OUR SPECIAL DINNER I DIDN'T EVEN SEND IT BACK. I JUST WANTED TO LEAVE. THE WAITRESS CAME BY (YVONNE) TWICE, AN WAS IN PERSONABLE. SHE PUT THE MENUS ON THE TABLE AND NEVER EVEN READ OR SAID THE NIGHT'S SPECIALS. FINALLY THE WAITRESS CAME BY, DROPPED THE DESERT MENUS ON THE TABLE SAYING, JUST IN CASE THERE IS ROOM, AND KEPT WALKING. IT WAS NOT A NICE DINNING EXPERIENCE.

    Dined on 8/9/2014
    Everything was great as the restaurant's food, menu choices to fit all kinds of tastes and service were excellent. Beside trying to find a place to park on a weekend, the other concern is the possibility of "double tipping" as no one tells you that the tip is already on the bill for our table of SIX. I thought tips were put on for tables of EIGHT or more. Of course, the waitress does not tell you that the tip is already on the bill and no one in our party saw any note on the menu saying this! Maybe we missed it? So make sure you look your check over very carefully if you have a few people.

    My wife and I had the pleasure to dine at Pasta Pasta on July 12th 2014, we had made 7:30 reservations arrived early and was checked in and told our table would be ready shortly and it was. This was not our first time here but haven't dined here in awhile (not anything to do with them) so we knew we were in for a great meal and they didn't disappoint! The service was excellent from the front all the way to the water girls and the food well it is simply the best Italian food in the area if not in all of Suffolk , so if your interested in a great dining expeareance and like Italian do not hesitate to try them out and I'm sure you will pleased that you did.

We would go there again in a heartbeat! My hubby had the rigatoni a la vodka, & I had the ravioli parmigiana - wow! Sumptuous! The bread is to die for! We shared the trio of sorbets for dessert - heaven! We are in love with Pasta Pasta! You will love it, too!

    I ordered and basic pasta dish, as did my wife. Food was excellent but a tad expensive for what we ordered. My two kids ordered kids pasta with butter sauce and cost was $13 per dish.....Very Overpriced for just pasta. I will never go back with the kids! And we usually go out with the kids. So no more Pasta pasta for us.
