    This was our first time eating at a sit down location at Universal and it didn't disappoint at all!! We will be coming back next year. My daughter said that her pizza was brought down by the angels and my steak was great!

    We had a peaceful table outside with the excitement and fun of Citywalk around us. The food was better than expected - really quite good - and even though we were at Citywalk, we felt like we were tucked in a cafe in Italy in our own bubble within Citywalk. A perfect place to dine before heading across the way to a concert at Hard Rock. Quiet, pretty sunset, fun location.

    We have eaten at almost all the restaurants in CityWalk and decided to try Pastamore. It has a very kid friendly menu and is decorated in bright colors. If your looking for dark romantic Italian this is not the place to go to. It is more of a family friendly place. Food was good and service was good as well. In the month of September if you have a Annual Pass Park the offer is buy one entree get another 50% off.

    The food tasted great, although there could have been a little more of it for the price. The server seemed preoccupied with something going on elsewhere. Overall, though, a very good experience for theme park dining.

    Food was decent, place was clean and tidy. Overall we had a good dining experience people watching from the outside tables. Only criticism I have is we felt we were being rushed out the door tater our meal. We would have happily sat and had another drink but as soon as we said no to desert the waiter presented us with the bill and thanked us for dining.... We paid, left and had a drink in one of the bars!

    We went there due to the choices on the menu. However, I got the seafood fradiavalo pasta and was very disappointed. The clams were so tiny that I could barely find them. Mussels were not that good. I liked the spicy sauce but did no think the serving was dinner size. The olive oil with the bread was not the best. I like different spices in the olive oil. Waiter was not good either. He really did not pay any attention to us and we felt like we were a bother. Overall, I was not happy but feel these things are easy fixes.

    The restaurant was great. We have a child with severe food allergies and they were able to accommodate us. Chef Miles was great to my child with food allergies and was able to supply him with everything a 12 year old would want. We had a little difficulty and the manager quickly took care of the problem. We visited this restaurant for both lunch and dinner. Both so great that my 7,10, and 12 year old want to keep going back. They compare every thing at city walk to this restaurant.

    Extremely unhappy with the whole experience . Looking forward to eating in one of the restaurants on citywalk in universal, orlando. really let down...expected more...waitress was inattentive, had to ask several times for items which were never brought. Waitress disappeared after ordering, Had to track her down in order to get something. Expected more for such a well known and visited place. food was okay....go some where else to eat....do not recommend.

    Dined at Pastamore in May and the food, service, and setting were very good! That was our reason for returning during our July visit. We were disappointed though this visit. waited for more than 15 minutes for someone to take our drink order, And that was only when I signal a manager to our table, who asked "what can I do for you?" Our food arrived, Veal & Eggplant Parm, way overlooked, burned! We told our waitress the meals were unacceptable! She promptly returned the meals to the kitchen for re-dos. The manager apologized for the meals, & assured us the next meals would be like the one we remembered. Sure enough, the second serving lived up to our memories from May and was very good. We will definitely give Pastamore another try...

    My family of three dined on a Sunday and all of us were unimpressed by the quality of the food and service. It was a big letdown after having truly fabulous experiences at other restaurants in City Walk the previous two nights, but to be fair to Pastamore, its prices were notably lower. My son shared a pizza and found every component mediocre. My wife had a chicken and pasta dish and commented that she could do better at home. The bread was good, but found the fact that they serve it with plain olive oil rather than adding seasonings to be a little on the pedestrian side. The service was atrocious in nearly every possible way. I can only recommend this restaurant for larger families if only because of its affordability.

    My wife and I ordered dinner salads, and it took over 45 minutes to bring them out. When they finally came, one of them was wrong. While we waited, our waiter did not check on us, and we could not get his attention. After we finished, our waiter brought our check and never came back. I would not eat here.

    The big problem with reviews is that companies will tell you that if they don't get five stars, then the management deems them failures Don't buy into the "stars" nonsense. What's the difference between "good" and "very good" anyway? The food is good at Pastamore; good enough that my wife and I have frequently eaten there - and we live 1.5 hours away. It's simple Italian food with enough of a twist to make it unique and different. It's a place that will appeal to the adults and children alike. It's not a Michelin-starred restaurant and it's not meant to be. The staff is considerate and friendly, and that's important when you've been wandering a park for 10 hours with kids. Pastamore is what it is: a simple place to eat and relax.

    I ordered a shrimp pasta with a red pepper cream sauce. Everything was drowning in the sauce and the noodles were overdone. My dad ordered spaghetti and meatballs and it hardly had any sauce at all. It tasted really bland. We went because they advertised an all you could eat buffet for the kids. We were told they weren't having it that night because a private party was coming in. The kids were super disappointed. My son ordered a pizza and it actually was really good and huge for a kid's portion. It was the size of an adult small pizza. The service was good and the chef even came out and was friendly with my family. It's unfortunate that the south has such trouble getting Italian food right. Definitely not worth the price.

    Remember you are at city walk. This is not Emeril's competition, probably more like Olive Garden. But you are on vacation right???? Sangria and appetizers were good, the kids pizza was the best entree. Eating at City Walk without reservations on the Saturday of Memorial Day, this is the price you pay....

    The food was average. The kids menu actually had a good variety of choices. One of our adult meals was very tasty although very small quantity of food. The adult lasagna meal was not very good. Poor quality sauce and meal overall. Service was average. The waiter got one of the kids meals wrong. Took a little time to get the correct meal brought back to us, so that was a disappointment.

    Theme park dining can be iffy but we were pleasantly surprised with the quality of the food! We had a group of 7 and everyone commented on how good the food was. Service was excellent as well! It was a little noisy but other than that it was a positive experience and I would return again. Hopefully next time it won't be raining and we'll try the outdoor patio.

    This was our second visit to Pastamore and we were even more pleased this visit. The bruschetta prepared at your table was delicious and we loved being able to make choices on enhancing it by choosing the ingredients. The entrees were outstanding and the homemade desserts were delectable. Our server was so accommodating and the smaller crowd allowed him to give us a lot of undivided attention. When you are within such close proximity to an amusement park you do not expect such a dining experience.

    We had a group of six. Appetizers took half hour to get out. Food another half hour. I consider this too long. Most dishes were good. I got nocchi and sausage, primavera was good, brazed beef w/risotto was very good -except I thought they added too much wine in risotto. My daughter got the spaghetti and meatballs- spaghetti and sauce were good, but the meatball were horrible. Tastes like frozen Cosco or BJ meatballs with lots of fillers. Overall, reasonable prices for okay/good food.
