This was our first visit to
This was our first visit to PASTA PASTA. The two complaint I have is that parking is tough and there is no bar. They do serve beer and wine. We were greeted nicely. The menu has a lot of unique dishes. We had the appetizer for two which had shrimp wrapped with bacon, baked clams, and calamari. I had a baked chicken dish which was an upscale chicken parmiagiana with extra features. My wife had a cavatelli dish which she said was excellent.. We had a homemade dessert which was excellent, an apple cobbler type. Very nice place.

Great Spot in Port Jeff
The food is excellent, and the surroundings are very comfortable. Service is friendly, and the restaurant has an overall friendly atmosphere. Good for just the two you or a family.

Great selection and wonderful food
Really great food which was worth the wait. Make sure you make a reservation! Our wait staff was extremely slow though (only saw our waitress twice) and it took FORTY minutes from the end of our meal to get our check. Great food but poor service.

Dinner at 6
My husband and I were at Pasta Pasta by 6pm and did not realize they had an early bird menu. We were pleasantly surprised with the choices and our meals were delicious.

Great food, excellent service
Each year I visit my family on Long Island, Pasta Pasta is ALWAYS on list for a week day lunch. The location in Port Jefferson is delightful, the food is consistently terrific and the service is accommodating, friendly and attentive.
Pasta Pasta is one of our favorite restaurants!
5/24/2013 4:00:00 PM
It's been a while since we've been here. Why it took so long to go back I have no idea. Dinner was absolutely fantastic. We will be going back a lot more.

My wife and I went to Pasta Pasta for out 6th anniversary. The food was great, the service was great, the price was fair for the quality and the portion. I don't think my water glass ever went empty. The staff was on the spot and very friendly. I WILL go again and I am sure I will enjoy the great food again.
5/25/2013 4:00:00 PM
Pasta Pasta has fantastic food. I am never disappointed when I eat there. Their scallops were so tender and perfectly seared and the baked clams are uniquely delicious. It's my wife and I's favorite dining spot.

Fun Dining Experience
There are many places to eat in Pt. Jeff and this is one of the great ones. Nice menu selections and specials moderately priced. Food was well presented and flavorful. Definitely on the list for a repeat visit.

Birthday dinner at Pasta Pasta
Service was great, very attentive even though the place was completely full and busy. Brought extra bread quickly on demand. Surf and Turf was perfect. Steak just right, shrimp, tasty. Ordered a salad before the meal. Think twice, because it was very big and it can fill you up. The wait for our table was was a little bit, but then again, it was filled.
6/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Just great food.
The food was amazing. I would be happy with the bread, a salad a a great white wine.
6/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had lunch on Father's Day. The bread was good. We had mussels & appetizer for two(stuffed clams, shrimp rolled in bacon & wasabi calamari) which were also spectacular. A good serving size of the main entres (I was too stuffed up to finish my plate). Nice ambience and perfect service!

I haven't been to pasta pasta
I haven't been to pasta pasta in a long time. The food was always good in the past. I was hoping nothing had changed and was glad to find that it was just as delish as I had remembered! Parking in port Jefferson is alway a issue, and we went a a Saturday night , that could be a bigger challenge. We found a spot not to far from pasta pasta. we shared an app. between 3 more then enough, i had the special my husband and son order from regular . pasta was fresh and everything came out hot and just how we ordered. All of us ordered desert also, but , we had to take most of it home because we were too full. Service is excellent, didnt feel rushed out or forgotten about.

First time at Pasta pasta
First time at Pasta pasta and the food was excellent. Each of us had a different main course and appetizer and all raved about the quality. The bread comes with butter already infused and we wanted it plain with olive oil on the side and we had to ask three times for the bread-this minor issue was the only complaint we had !!!
6/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
You CAN go home again.
My wife and I had a small wedding party here 10 years ago, and also our 1st lunch date 12 years before, when the place first opened. The restaurant still features a cozy, tastefully reserved interior design, excellent service and great food. Portions are generous; the wine list and the dessert menu are very good.
It seemed a bit louder (just nearby table conversation, nothing terrible) and more bustling than I remember, but it was dinner on Saturday and packed, so totally understandable. As the place emptied a bit and the lights dimmed, it took on the more intimate and romantic glow we remembered.
While some things in the village had changed, some of the best things we remember about PJ are still very much alive and well. Two thumbs up.
6/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
We've been coming for years and years. Alway good food and service. Best place to eat in Port Jefferson
6/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was delicious! We ordered pasta pomodoro for the table to accompany our entrees, and it was absolutely delicious! The lobster salad was excellent as was the filet mignon sandwich special. The service was perfect....Anthony was efficient, professional and knowledgable! We brought our out-of-town family here on our visit to Port Jefferson and everyone enjoyed themselves! I would definitely go back and highly recommend this restaurant!
7/4/2013 4:00:00 PM

Hidden Gem- Amazing
My only suggestion is I wish they would open a Pasta Pasta in Boston. The food was excellent and our waiter could not have been more accomodating. We had nine people on a early Sunday dinner and nothing was a problem. The hostess could not have been nicer with letting us choose a round or a long table and the service and food were outstanding. We explained that we had to get the 730 p.m ferry and the drinks and the food arrived seemlessly. We returned on the following Thursday evening and we had Debbie as our waitress and she made us feel like we were eating at home. Nothing was an issue. I had a meal the prior Sunday which was to die for and she said it would be no problem for the chef to make it again. Don't miss the opportunity.

Great local place -- classy
Great local place -- classy and elegant but not over the top -- very comfortable. Food and service are consistent, so you know you're always going to have a great experience. Specials are on the money, and reasonable. Our waiter was wonderful, and she recommended a great bottle of pinot grigio. Sure bet for a great meal, reasonably priced, casual dress and atmosphere. 2 words of caution -- make a reservation because it's not the biggest place, and although the espresso is wonderful, bring your own sambucca -- they serve beer and wine, but no liquor.

this place never disappoints.

This restaurant is by far
This restaurant is by far my favorite. Over the years I have dined here numerous times. The food is excellent.....We have always come away with the thought of getting back again soon! Management and staff are always courteous and professional. I give it my highest praise!.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
pricey but worth it
food was excellent, creative, rich, wonderful. worth the price and the wait. reservations are important. wine is very reasonably pricec, though it is a limuted wine list. one of 2 or perhaps 3 best restaurants in the Port Jeff area. it was recommended by my family who live in Port Jeff and we ate there 3 times during our 8 day visit.
8/24/2013 5:00:00 PM
Pasta Pasta is one of the best Restaurants in Port Jefferson. Delightful relaxing lunch service was warm & friendly & timely . Rather lengthy lunch menu to chose from. Have to highlight the Shrimp Fri Diablo (Excellent X large shrimp - hot & Spicy)The others ordered chicken & pasta prepared with a light white sauce-presented beautifully & all enjoyed by other three. Always a culinary treat for your taste buds.Highly recommend
9/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
My entire party was delighted with the restaurant. Everyone selected a different main course and we were all very happy with each dish. The food was prepared perfectly and the presentation of each plate was fabulous. I am definitely adding this restaurant to my list of choices. The service was top notch and we never had to look for the servers, they were always there at the right time.
Also, I must mention that the people at the reception desk could not have been more accommodate. We were actually a week early for our reservation, nevertheless they sat us without a great fuss..
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Oh So Good!
There was nothing about my experience here that I did not enjoy. We sat at around 6:30 and the restaurant was very quiet. The service was great, the food was fantastic, and I'd go back just for the rice pudding.
9/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Everything was good. It wasn't a noteworthy meal or service experience, but there was nothing specific to complain about either. Was neither over nor underwhelmed.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
This visit was a special occasion, and no one was disappointed. It can be a little pricey, but it was good for a special occasion Service was friendly and not over bearing. We will return.

Positively Pasta Pasta
Great ....... As usual! Anthony is the best! This restaurant has been a favorite of ours for decades.

Great Dining Spot
Well known spot for dining with a well deserved reputation for excellent food. This trip did not disappoint as all of our dinners here have always been top notch. This time had their fish of the day, which was a fish called Corvina. Never had it before, but was a great meal. Service is always excellent and would recommend this spot to anyone looking for something a little bit special.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Definitely a favorite
Great food! Definitely worth giving it a try, even if you have to deal with the annoying parking situation in Port Jefferson. Make sure you have a reservation because they are not good at making room for walk ins.
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love pasta pasta
We went to celebrate our wedding anniversary, love this place!
10/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
We have been coming to this restaurant since it opened 21 years ago. Always a pleasant experience, warm atmosphere, friendly staff and wonderful food. I highly recommend Pasta Pasta!
10/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
You can't go wrong no matter what you ordered. They had a wonderful selection of seasonal beers on top of their great wine list. The service was also friendly and fast.
10/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
At first we were seated near a wait staff bus station. With in 30 seconds, two separate visits by wait staff who had stopped to clank dinnerware on the ear height tile counter top to which our table was adjacent; There was no way we went out to dinner to sit next to that all night. The table should not be there. We were re-seated after a 20 minute wait. The rest of the evening was good as usual. The portions are smaller these days.
11/1/2013 5:00:00 PM
Popped in for my mom's birthday during Restaurant Week. Pasta Pasta over the years has been one of my favorites, and I am yet to be dissappointed.
11/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
This is a great restaurant
This is a great restaurant right in the heart of Port Jeff. The food was delicious.!
11/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
Super cozy without feeling at all cramped. The room is warm and the staff was extremely attentive without ever being overbearing. Food was to die for ... Apps we're cool twists on what can be a very tired array of standard apps in many places. We all ate pasta and had dessert that really great. Portions were generous, but not giant ... took home leftovers as a snack instead of a meal. Will definitely repeat.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Quiet place with great food. Restaurant week specials were great price and taste! Will definitely be going back.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food was terrific but my quibble was the service. Our wait person was efficient but not warm. The place was hoping but there was no sense of warmth. Even the runners were brusque. We enjoyed our dinners but it would be nice to feel more welcomed.
